I have never been so afraid, angered, and disappointed in the care at our local hospital. I went in with chest pain, high blood pressure and pulse rate feeling completely afraid! The first 10 minutes were impressive However it was all down hill from there. No communication for2 hours until a women showed up to take me for a ct scan, that I was unaware I needed. When I inquired about it she explained they were checking for clots. The doctor who failed to inform me of the ct scan also showed up in the room and gave my husband a vague update on my condition. When I returned to my room, I asked to see my doctor and was told she would be in when she finished with the patient she was with (that was understandable) An 1/2 hour passed and I again asked about seeing the doctor and a different nurse gave me yet a different answer and was quite condescending with her responses. Please keep in mind that my chest still hurt and I was experiencing fear. Yet another 45 minutes passed with no visit from the lady who was supposed to be my physician. I had No intentions of occupying a lot of the “doctors “ time, I just simply needed to have some explanations. I left to seek help elsewhere!
Need to work on attention to patients needs and nurses bed side manors.
Definitely did not receive award winning medical care
