*** Update: August/2018 ***
The hospital just sent a $313 bill; after one was turned away for presenting with a gynecological issue?
Is this a racket of some kind?
How many other patients have been falsely billed?
Follow the money.... ***
Why is an ER doctor empowered to make female patients feel ashamed for a GYN complaint?
What if a male patient presented with a urological complaint?
Is this a pattern of unequal treatment?
I visited this facility with complaints of pelvic inflammation, discharge, infection, and heavy bleeding.
Apologies that a GYN is not open on a Saturdays and my infection was an inconvenience to address.
In Dr. Miller's words...
"Does this look like a clinic of some sort to you?
I see no reason for to perform a pelvic examination...
The urine sample contains no signs of infection...
Your symptoms are not a medical emergency....
Go to a urgent care..."
With all due respect, these comments are a disgrace.
I was released from Jack Hughston with no paperwork or instructions of any kind. The nurse told me the documents were at the front desk. However, the front desk clerk only had my identification to return. She stated: "just call the records department, if you need a copy of your visit."
This makes no sense....
Where are the patient discharge instructions?
Why do they keep one's identification (unsecurely) at the front desk?
How can you ensure our identity and personal information is not compromised or stolen?
Why the miscommunication between staff, when a patient asks a question?
One left this hospital from being treated in such an unprecedented manner, directly to a respectable urgent care.
It's 2018, Folks.
Women shouldn't be shamed for presenting with gynecological concerns.
