I was so ill that I could not stand or walk. Ihad severe head and stomach pains, I had gone to my primary care doctor and she was so worried that she said it was critical for mee to go immediately to the ER. Iwas whisked in, greeted by friendly volunteer. That's where the patient care ended. Tho, I was pushed over to a little seat while the assistant turned and walked away. Tho, I could not stand on my own there was no offer of assistance in getting out of the chair. WI asked a couple of times (after waiting for 2 hours) how much longer. No one could give me any answer. After 4 hours waiting. While many many people walked in the front door were served immediately, I managed to drag myself into the chair and roll over to tell them I was checking out and going to the Silverton Hospital. When I told her that I had benn waiting for over four hours and many people came in and only waited a few minutes. Her reply.They were all on the "fast track". My thought..."What am I chopped liver?" Myfriends tell similiar horror stories. I will never ever ever go back and will tell everyone I know to go toSilverton for any emergency care needs.
