I am not pleased with this ER.
Upon checking in, the nurse was asking me health related questions; while very polite, I noticed he was checking boxes without asking me the question first. Such as: have you traveled outside of the country recently. He checked 'no' on that box without even asking me. That is pertinent information that he didn't bother to get, instead he made an assumption.
The other problem is that I was told that I was dehydrated, and that I really needed water to hydrate myself. If this was such a concern to them, why wouldn't they start an IV and give me saline? Or at the very least, not make me wait half an hour to bring me a tiny water bottle?
Another thing I will mention since I'm writing, is that I refused pain meds. Which is completely my right and will not have a negative effect on my health. The nurses would not accept this answer and kept bothering me about it; and not in a polite way. They were very rude about it with a tone of voice that would make you think I was in anaphylaxis refusing epinephrine.
These problems were not the only shortcomings I noticed and paid the price for. I am not at all impressed by this hospital or its staff. I see a need for ethics and customer service training...
