|Hospital Nightmare on Jul 22, 2015 @ 01:38 pm|
I too had a hospital nightmare but not as bad as yours. I never waited that long!

I do hope you're feeling better now.

Hope your feeling better. I personally haven't been through what you went through, but I know quite a few people who've had hospital nightmares. Years ago my mom was in pain, didn't know what it was (ended up kidney stones). Waited an hour in the waiting room, but when she was called to come to the back, the waiting was ridiculous, there she was in pain, no one would come see, I asked the nurse if someone could give her something & when is a Dr gonna see her? I was told the dr's are busy & only they can give her something. I see 4 Dr's standing, they were talking and laughing, they didn't look busy to me.

I'm doing better so far as that situation goes, although when I first came home I was actually having flash back's when I closed my eye's. That's never happened to me and I know it wasn't from the med's they put me on. This isn't the first time I've waited in emergency, I sat in there with my son for 8 hour waiting to get to the back and another 5 before we saw a Dr. That was about ten years earlier and they've been trying to tell us they cut their wait time down by over have since than. After what I just went through I can say that's a bunch of bull! We have two other hospitals in this city and they're all the same! Now they tell us they're going to build a mega hospital that should put a complete stop to all of the waiting, but they also said they're going to close two of the other hospitals. As far as we're all concerned we think they should be keeping all of them open once the new one is built, other wise it's just going to be more of the same. If people that should be going to their own Dr, or to a clinic instead of going to emergency for little things did, I don't think any of these long wait time would be happening. Unfortunately no matter how many times people are told that, they still keep heading to the emergency. Oh and I forgot to mention that the dummy's left those stickers they put on you when they're checking your heart when they put me through the MRI. You're not supposed to have any type of metal on you or in you for that mater when you go through one because they’re a high powered magnet and those stickers have metal on them!! When I came out of it I told my husband I could feel something pulling on my skin and when he looked there was three still on me. He installs MRI's in all the hospitals across Canada so he knows the damage that they can cause. He was so mad I thought he was going to hit someone and he'd end up in jail on top of what I was already going through. It was all just so crazy and this all just had to happen on the July 4th weekend! I’m still shaking my head over it.

Hospitals are the worst.. nurses are rude & the doctors are all lazy. Its a guessing game with them. The only thing a doctor likes is when your health card is swipped so they can get paid!

Hospitals experiences can be good or bad depending on the day and staff that is working at the time. At our local hospital my family has had really good care and also really bad care. It seems to be like playing the lottery at times.
People only go to the hospital when they need care not because we want to be there. That being said the people working there either like their job or they should switch to another field of work instead of making people feel worse when they are already in a bad place physically or mentally.
I give a lot of credit to the good hospital staff because they have such an important job which at times are thankless.
I hope you get better soon and can get past your experience :)

I am so sorry to hear that, its very scary to think that the heath care system has gotten so difficult to use.
