*I have received a response from administration and a apology from both the emergency room director, and the administrative director also.*
I came to the emergency room for treatment, which I was in a dire amount of pain due to some issues going on. I am also chronologically ill. One of the nurses who has taken care of me before was MOCKING me in ear shot. I can understand a bad night, really, I can. I can understand you might have someone coding on the other part of the emergency room. But mocking a patient that is actually feeling pain and is sick? Wrong. That nurse is in the wrong field to be mocking a patient when hes supposed to be caring for people that are sick. He has such a bad attitude problem and that is why myself and my family has made the decision not to come back to POPH for any reason, at all. I admit there are some staff members that are great nurses and there are some great doctors, but that nurse made me feel like I cannot express how much pain I'm in without being made fun of; and basically being called a liar. It was unacceptable behavior from someone who is in a practice of caring for individuals, regardless of their own personal opinion. In-fact, it was disgusting. I hope the nurse in question does not receive a patient who is having a heart attack, and mocks them saying "Oh he's not having a heart attack" and suddenly said patient codes and dies because the nurse is uncaring and incompetent. A big thanks to the staff that reached out and apologized for my experience, those are great representatives of the hospital; however to avoid being under care of the nurse in question, I will not be returning.
