I took my disabled husband to the ER a few months ago. Before we could even get through the doors, the guard that worked there,grabbed and tried to take his walking stick from him. My husband's walking stick is 7ft tall. (He's 6ft 4") That stick is his legs. He can't walk without it. The whole time we waited, for a few hours, guard was threatening us. I had my phone and was going to take a picture of him. He started yelling at me, saying that I couldn't take his picture, yelling across the room. He embarrassed us, everyone else was staring. He then came over to us,being loud and challenging. I guess he was trying to show that he ran the place. After all that, we waited for hours for them to get to him. He was taken back, and given a xray. After waiting some more, we were taken in a room,with the doors open, and told us his back was healed! AMAZING! He's had back surgery and has and still is in pain constantly. Then we were told that they wouldn't give him any drugs,(we never asked for anything). Was treated like scum. They didn't even know how to take the pressure off his spine, a procedure done to him in VA hospital in Chicago a few times. Care here is at best mediocre. The doctor and nurse didn't have a clue.
Very unprofessional. Will NEVER go back. So sad. I hate to think that this is the norm, how many others have had to endure this treatment, I'd be afraid to guess.
