Let just say I had a health scare this past weekend and wound up checking myself into the Emergency room at
Strong Memorial Hospital – Rochester, NY after pain started when I had a hard sneeze. I finished the night at my Walmart security Job and then went on to my 2nd job working at the Rochester City School district as a school sentry. I made it through lunch but I was in to much pain to finish the day that’s when I decided to go see the school nurse and see what she thought. She said that if I was her she would go to the ER thats after she asked me if I was feeling nauseous, up to that point I was in to much pain to think. That until she asked me that question right then it hit me that I was nauseous and that was scary I thought I was having appendix pain after talking to the school nurse and as a safety precaution I decided to go to the ER.
The Next 12 hrs were a real eye opener to me and should be to you as well. So when I first checked myself into the ER it was around 1:30 in the afternoon and they took my info, blood pressure an vitals then told me to wait and that someone would be with me soon and about a 1/2 hr later I was called in to another waiting room inside the ER’s Rapid response hall, were I waited for about 30 minuets till they brought me into the initial examination room that had a table that I sat on and waited for the nurse to take my Vitals again but this time they also took blood as well. After talking to the nurse and residency medical doctor I was asked if I wanted pain medication I made a mistake and said I think I can wait till I talk to the doctor. I must have been put on the not so urgent to see list because I sat in that room for about 3 hrs before my dad showed up and stared to make things happen by asking questions of why its taking so long to see a doctor.
After my dad showed up I was put outside of the Rapid response hallway to wait for a room with other ER patience that took about another 2 hrs sitting in a hallway to wait for a room. Finally they called my name a thought of relief came over me. They took me to a examination room with 6 other people two people per examination area. I thought that this was just another waiting room because it did not have hospital beds just hard plastic chairs for patients to sit in to wait to be examined by the doctors.
As we were waiting to see my doctor the girl that was sitting next to me on her hard plastic chair had her ER doctor came in and proceed to do an examination on this young woman who had to be in her teen to early 20 somethings with out asking us to leave the area. I was still in pain but I decided out of respect for this young woman that I would give her privacy as that’s what Id want for myself or my child. I couldn’t believe that the doctors were going to examine this stranger in front of myself and my dad. All I can say is “Am I in the twilight zone” is this really happening in America. Yes it is an you can thank Obama Care.
This photo above is what you would expect to be placed in when you have a trip to the ER before Obama Care.
This is what you can expect to see in your initial Examination, other people in the ER room with you and a plastic chair. You can for get your rights to privacy and comfort if you voted for Obama.
I have to be thankful that my dad was with me because he spoke up on my behalf and when the doctors came in to examine me for the first time my dad said to the doctors this is ridiculous to be examined in front of other patience s that we didn’t know. He asked about my rights to privacy and about the HIPPA Laws. As soon as my dad asked about the Laws then the doctors quickly left the room and sent in my nurse again, she said that they would get me a room with an examination table and that the residency medical doctor had miss diagnosed me and sent me to the wrong room.
I have to say that this trip to the ER was much different than the 13 other times that I had gone to the ER years ago when I would dislocate my shoulder but that was before this new generation of obamacare. To me it seems that we have taken a step back and have manifested into a 3rd world class of medical care. Years ago you would go to the ER and get first class service yes you would wait just like anyone else but you would get a room asap you wouldn’t get stuck sitting in hard plastic chairs for 6 plus hours sick and in pain. Just to get an examination in front of complete strangers, my dad was correct that is ridiculous and unacceptable. We as the American people should demand better and stop voting for the Communist Socialist Party’s like the Democrats and Republicans that keep moving us closer to a Communist Governmental System or you to can expect to lose your rights and privacy like they tried with me in that examination room.
I have to say all the people at the hospital working were kind and professional to the highest degree expect when it came to the initial examination that they tried to do in front of other strangers. I know how hard these people work because I spent ten years in the Medical field myself and understand the great pressure they are under to preform at such high standards. The problems that I see are coming from the State and the insurance company’s that cover medical treatments. I’m just thankful that my visit to the ER turned out to be just a infection and inflammation that can be treated with antibiotics. So after about 12 hrs I was released to go home and given the weekend off of work and I spent that time recovering and with my baby Girl Ella.
