How my brother got treated in the ER!
This is very disturbing big time. My brother had to go to the ER for a severe injury to his arm that happened to him at work when a machine fell on him. Well he sat down in the waiting room to wait to be seen. He said that he was so tired that he fell asleep with his legs dangling over the arm of the chair. He slept like that for several hours. He said that he woke up and thought darned I should be seen by now. He said that he went to get up and it was like his legs were dead and he could not feel anything and that he fell right to the floor and could not get up. Needless to say he was scared, who wouldn't be. He started yelling for somebody to help him up. He laid there for over a half an hour before some man came over and helped him up to his feet. I think that that is terrible service and boy if I were him, I would have sued big time. You don't leave a person yelling out for help on the floor and ignore them. He said people, medical staff and all just walked by him and did nothing. It was another patient that helped him to his feet. This goes to show how sorry some ER's in this country are. Sorry for venting, but stuff like this really upset me to no end.
