Please please please never go here if you are having any kind of mental distress. Go to a university hospital where there is a psych unit. I went to St. Francis emergency room after a panic attack I couldn't come down from. That was my first mistake. I've had clinical depression and anxiety for 7 years and have always been on medication and seeing a therapist. Turns out all I needed was another dose of my anxiety med and a 3 hour nap. However, St. Francis does not have a psychiatric unit and therefore could not release me until I was seen by a psychiatrist. So they sent me to Chicago Lakeshore hospital, probably the worst psychiatrist hospital in the area.
On an earlier occasion I came to this hospital for severe cramping in the lower abdomen. I thought my IUD was moving out of place. A EMT student ran my IV and missed my vein several times. He also did not inform me that he was student or ask my permission to practice on me. They gave me painkillers and ran loads of tests, but the nursing staff tried to discharge me without talking to a doctor!!! I asked to see one and they said, "oh, did you want to see a doctor?" I said, "yes!!! I want to know the results of my tests." The nurse then proceeded to read back my test results, before I interrupted him and asked to see a doctor. The emergency room doctor came in and I was informed that I had a kidney and bladder infection, likely cause by and untreated UTI. Not the results the nurse had given me (probably because he is not certified to give results!!!) The kind emergency room doctor gave me a prescription and I was on my way. That doctor is the only reason for my second star. All other things I experienced were 1 star worthy!
