Hunibee, I had a bad experience over Memorial weekend when I passed out in the bathroom for several minutes and my DH had to call the ambulance (which cost over $600 for a two mile trip to the hospital). The doctor was busy and the only thing they did for me in the ER was take my PB. I could have been having a stroke or heart attack. I asked them several times to please call my GP and they wouldn't do it. By the time the doc did see me I was pretty much back to normal. The nurse was going to give me a shot for nausea and when she had to measure (out loud) where to give me a shot in the butt I said forget it I'm going home and I have the meds at home. My doc could not believe they did not do any blood work, EKG or anything. I live in a small town with one hos and not the hos I normally go to. I will never go back there even if I am dying my DH better put me in the car and take me to the hos we normally go to. It is unbelievable the care you get in some of these ERs.
luv and hugs
