My 20 year old daughter was sent to the ER from urgent care after she presented there with severe headache, light sensitivity, nausea, and neck pain. She has never had anything like this before. I have been in the nursing profession for 18 years as an RN, NP, and CNM. I know that these signs can mean meningitis. I hopped in my car and drove 4 and a half hours down to Brunswick expecting she may be getting a CAT scan and possibly a lumbar puncture. She was kept for about 6 hours and had blood taken and a urine run and was given some IVF and some ‘medicine’. She said she wasn’t told what medicine it was other than it would help her pain. I asked her to please have her nurse or the doctor call me when her test results came in. When I got to Brunswick, and walked through the thoroughly disgusting ER, she had been discharged and was waiting in the hall. She looked horrible and her eyes were all swollen and pink. She was diagnosed with a UTI and migraine. She had no UTI symptoms. I asked to speak to her nurse because I wanted to know what meds she had been given and what the results of her labs were. I also was concerned about the neck pain and visual problems she was having. The RN blew me off and refused to give me this information and said we would have to ‘request it from medical records’. Are you kidding me? I was also told that I could not speak to the doctor or see her labs because she was 20 years old. She was sitting right next to me and gave permission for me to receive medical info! I’m very familiar with HIPPA. What kind of care is this? I should have put my foot down and asked to speak to the patient rep but I just wanted to get her out of there and to another hospital ASAP. It is sad that this is the best that this area has to offer.
