Last night I woke up unable to breathe. I couldn't drive, so my husband had to drive me and our kids down to this place, and it's over an hour away from us. They wouldn't let my family back with me, and basically refused to help me. Some fascinating quotes from my visit:
"We won't test you for the flu, because all our tests come back POSITIVE" wait, what??
"We could give you a chest x-ray but if you do have pneumonia, we won't treat you. We only treat pneumonia in children under two or adults over 65." Excuse me?? Jim Henson /died/ from pneumonia.
"Well you look fine." DID I ASK HOW I LOOKED?
"Are you pregnant, or could you be?" I told them yes I could be pregnant, they never tested me.
They asked me if I had a fever, I told them my temp when I left home was 99.8, to which the nurse rudely snapped, "that's not a fever, it's an elevated temperature, and we don't consider it a fever unless you're higher than 101°"
Now I could understand their behavior if they were busy, if they had many people with missing limbs or hear attacks, but when I got there, the lights were off, and I was the only patient there. Excuse me if I cut into your Facebook time with my inconsiderate body refusing to breathe. But I'm sure that's not an issue.
All they did for me? Gave me a half a teaspoon of cough syrup, ((I'm not kidding)) and sent me on my way with a prescription for more cough syrup.
TL;DR: if you go to this hospital, they will refuse to treat you, but will gladly take your money.
UPDATE: I turned out to have pneumonia, I went back six hours later, demanded an x-ray, and proved it.
