Emergency Room (ER)

Mothers terrible experience in the ER

1
PROS:

None.

CONS:

Do not come here unless you’re dying. Save your time and money. My mom went in after falling down a flight of stairs. She was in terrible shape, the nurses and doctor didn’t take her seriously and seemed like she was bothering them. One nurse put a blood pressure cup right on top of her IV and when my mom struggled to say how bad it hurt he said “oh it happens all the time”. She was there for so many hours waiting before they even did anything. For clarity, she was laying on a stretcher with a neckbrace on and couldn’t move half her body the pain was so intense. They couldn’t even do a MRI and just told her to go to her primary care doctor. Now after a couple weeks of having to worry that she could have bleeding in her brain or other serious underlying concerns she just now was able to get an MRI. Do not go here. Go to Cannon or anywhere else unless your dying because that’s the best you’ll get at Watauga Medical Center. You will get better treatment and quality of care literally anywhere else.
