I have a story to tell, but since it's not mine, I won't. I am going to say a couple of things here which should paint a good enough picture:
1. Time = Brain
2. If you aren't happy with your treatment, get thee to another hospital. ASAP.
3. Choose the most assertive person you know to be your voice when yours is lost.
4. Or suffer the consequences.
It's been a tough week here and our little family is suffering the consequences. I'm really sad to learn that in some emergency rooms, "treat 'em and street 'em" is still an acceptable way to push patients through, or in this case, out of the system.
It's a damned shame.
