JamesBW, there use to be a certain level of integrity with drs & nurses in the office & in the ER and hospital in general. But, those days are gone. Drs & nurses lie. The nurse from your drs office called the ER & either the person that took the message or the nurse they gave it to decided to ignore it.
Many, many yrs ago I worked at a hospital that was run by an order of Catholic nuns. If anyone even thought about
doing some of the things that are done now on a every day bases, we got into trouble. And getting into trouble with any of the sisters was the very last thing any of us wanted to do. But, that was a different time.
Younger folks, those under 55, who never knew the way it use to be seem to accept the way it is now without question. But those who are older, who remember when the integrity was there have a much harder time. There may still be a few hospitals that are exceptions, but they are few and far between and they won't be that way much longer.
