Healthcare or not care ????

If you find yourself in a medical emergency and need to head to the local ER for help keep the following things in mind.

1. Whether you have insurance or not they are going to try to do the least amount possible before sending you home with a prescription for a controlled substance like hydrocodone.

2. They have little or no interest in diagnosis.

3. Doctors that have wonderful backgrounds or are very respected in their field do not usually choose to be an ER doctor but instead choose a more profitable avenue like private practice.

4. You have rights. You have the right to ask for a more informative test.  You have the right to ask for a different nurse or Doctor if the one you have been assigned makes you feel as if you are not worth their time.

So speak up and don't allow them to treat you like a number.

Take care of yourself because you ARE important!
