UPDATE: When I tried to leave, I stopped in the restroom in the main lobby of the ER. It’s a single use. One restroom with a door that locks from inside. I was on the toilet when someone pounds on the door screaming they need to make sure I’m okay. I scream back I’m fine; I’m peeing, and would be out in a minute. The guy continues to pound on the door, and bursts through the door, into the women’s restroom and literally tries to grab me off the toilet. It turns out, the guy is uniformed officer from Keller. I tell him not to touch me. I tell him at that point, it’s assault. I have your nurse Jackie and her charge nurse (did not get her name) come out screaming at me that they need to take the IV needle out of my arm. I left, called Ft. Worth and Keller police from my car.
I’ll send you a copy of the police report I filed.
THIS PLACE SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN!!! I came to your ER on Sunday, Aug. 26 for a skin abscess. They kept me waiting for over six hours only to give me a dose of the same antibiotic I was taking at home. I told them that; they insisted, like it was going to magically work at the hospital, like all it needed to suddenly become effectual was a change of venue. The doctor agreed, finally, that I needed a different antibiotic, one for which there is an oral form. They said if I didn’t agree to stay in the hospital for at least three days, they would send me home with nothing at all.
This is coercion. It’s amoral and illegal. This ER is not focused on the patient, but rather on how much they can bill insurance. This place is a joke. Thankfully, they’re not the only hospital.
