Ever See on T.V. when they have a Segment concerning the E.R. & the Doctors and Nurses pushing a crash cart with a patient on it franticaly with all the vim ,vigor and gusto,with every breath they take? Well anyone who has ever been an E.R. patient at any hospital knows thats bullshit .fiction..its just dont happen that way. You can bleed out or die from heart failure or any number of things waiting to be seen by a Doctor or even a Triange Nurse for that matter.
I recenty have had a numbness in my ears going down onto my neck and my face was numb as if I left a Dentists office & was on Novacane which I wasnt ,So I did not call 911 and have an ambulance get me have taken me to a nearst hospital which in my humble opinion is a joint . So I drove myself to a nearby hospital in a neighboring town ,for the purpose of this story both hospitals I shall omit their names and they shall remain Anonomous.When I arrived in the E.R. the first thing I did was go to the reseptionist window ,I told her that I felt as if I’m having a stroke as my entire face is numb “Fill out this form please” she replied,I then gave her my HMO card & my Drivers licence & asked her to fill it out for me aswas in no condition to do so at this time. A half hour past and I still was not seen by the Triage Nurse, the resiptionist then me that other people are ahead of me/I then said ”Look what about stroke don’t you understand? I than went on further and told her that I always heard that early intervention is a must if you want to survive a stroke without unwanted paralyis ,at that point she said theTriarge Nurse said that your not having a stroke .. I replied back ” how can she say that because she hasn’t layed eyes on me Yet?” The receptionist then said because I told her so” I said who are you to make a medical asseration your not a nurse or a doctor you have no medical backgroung whatsover your a clerk a pencil pusher , Let me see the Triarge Nurse now tell her off her rear end and examine me right now ! WELL THIS IS THE REALITY OF THE E.R. For a country that pays the highest cost for medical care in the world this should never occur./end
