Be careful of the ER night staff. Go to a different hospital if you can. I had nurse Ratchet call security on me during a 3am ER visit because I wanted to rest 10 minutes after being given medication.
She said I had to leave immediately after giving me my medication. When I asked her if I could rest 10 minutes she said no. I thought she was joking. There was hardly anyone in the ER. I could see empty rooms with the lights off across the hall from me.
It was almost 4am, I spent 15 minutes in intake and 30 minutes explaining myself to doctors before getting a single dose of medication, then immediately discharged and security called to the room. Including doctors and nurses, about 10 people came to try and force me out.
The new opioid laws makes doctors and institutions so scared of losing their licenses that they treat pain patients like myself as criminal junkies looking to get a fix. I suffer from a slipped vertebrae and it can be excruciatingly painful when it flares up.
I received only contempt, not care, from the doctors treating me here and only disrespect from the attending nurse 'Ratchet'.
