I had a sharp pain hit me in my COLLARBONE and NECK last night, in agony until I finally went in tonight to be seen, they're me wait 2.5 hours before getting me back where they did ONE xray OF MY SHOULDER and gave me a sling I TOLD THEM IT WAS MY NECK AND COLLAR BONE THAT HURT they then dismissed me further and gave me ONE weak Hydro which did nothing for the pain and sent me on my way. I am positive I have a blood clot. And THEY SENT ME AWAY. WORST HOSPITAL EVER I WONT EVER GO BACK.
If you're homeless this place is a free hotel because you won't pay the bill it will just be passed to someone else:
Step 1 : complain about chest pain, and get an ambulance called.
Step 2: Refuse EMTs to check vitals while insisting you're having chest pains or breathing problems
Step 3: get to ER and during several hour wait demand food and more blankets. You could drag this out for 24 hours
Step 4: after it's confirmed you've only wasted time threaten suicide and get a room on the psychward and you have at least a few weeks of a roof over your head.
Walked in, got treated, released . Staff was professional and thorough. Dr. Kimberly is a master at her craft . Thank you all .
I witnessed something in the ER the other night, that I hope I never have to witness again. I am an RN. I work at a hospital in the ER in the Chicago area. We were visiting friends in the Springfield, MO area, and I needed to take my uncle to the ER. There was a couple there, and the husband was obviously trying to pass a kidney stone. He was is SEVERE pain. I know, I have worked with patients like this before. This man was lying on the hospital floor yelling in pain, and they would not see him. Trust me, if you have never passed a kidney stone, you have no idea what this feels like. It is horrible, horrible pain. I don't know how he didn't pass out. Anyway, they told the wife, who was very distraught, that it was going to be at least three hours before he could be seen. Meanwhile, this guy is going berserk with the pain. I CANNOT believe that they were going to let this man suffer like that and not do anything for him for THREE HOURS!!! I finally heard the wife tell them that she was going to take her husband to urgent care. They left, and I hope he was taken care of. It was the most awful, unprofessional thing that I have EVER seen. Shame on this hospital. Where I work, we don't go by first come, first serve, we go by how severe the emergency is. This man was obviously in extreme pain!!
Dr Ross sent me home saying I don't know what's wrong with you. He must be blind he couldn't see a rash and giant swpllen feet. He should be fired.
