I had a terrible back pain with cramps and fainting yesterday morning and had to call 911 since I got trapped in my bed and couldn't move at all. The ambulance took me to this hospital, and I was in ER until 10:45 pm. I had to wait forever until a nurse came and talked to me. I asked her to give me some pain medication because I desperately needed to use the bathroom. She literally told me "if you have to go to restroom get up and go'! I tried to move a 1/2' on my bed and screamed aloud and couldn't breathe from most horrible pain and cramps, and she told me to just walk to the restroom! I was in a very painful position on my side and wasn't even able to turn on my back. Then another nurse came and gave some painkillers, but they didn't work. I was in horrible pain and had to press the call button several times until he came back and started an IV. Then first nurse came and started grabbing my stomach that was hurting of holding the pee for hours. I got terrible cramps again and started crying - she yelled at me that I had to control myself! Just unbelievable. After the IV my husband basically carried me to the restroom. They did X-ray and ultrasound that didn't show much (they had to do MRI to see the herniated disk that I had). It was getting worse and the cramps and pain wouldn't stop, but nobody came for a long time even after I pressed the call button. At about 10pm they told me I have to get on a wheel chair and get out. I was chocked. I wasn't even able to get on a wheelchair from the bed. Then the doc came (for the first time!) and ordered some more heavy painkillers and after half an hour with great difficulty I was seated to a wheel chair, and my husband took me home. All the pharmacies were closed and I had to wait in pain until past 8am when my hubby brought me the heavy painkillers they prescribed. We already paid $350 and I'm sure will receive a huge bill for their "help". Stay away from that place! Utter disrespect and negligence.
