I have been sick a lot in my life so I know how the Er is and how the doctors and nurses are when it comes to trying to help their patients.
I would like to give a shout out to our hard working Doctors and Nurses here in Ontario, Canada. I have been going back and forth to the hospital trying to figure out what is going on with me. The first time that I went to the ER in Lake Ridge Health Bowmanville last week. I took and number and was called right away, to the Traige Nurse, and then went to register, I did not wait that long to be called back to see the doctor. The doctor was in to see me within minutes and when he stepped out he came back with the nurse with a gown and explaining to me that I was getting IV fluids, pain meds and gravol. I was sent home a few hours later as they were able to make me comfortable. I then had received a call from my doctor to meet him at the ER as some results came in. I was in seen him and out within a couple of hours. The next week I had to return to the ER as I was extremely sick, I was taken into the ER by wheel chair as I was unable to walk as I had been sick from the time I got into the car until I arrived at the doors. They wheeled me to a bed and within minutes I had another IV, pain meds and gravol. I had an appointment with a specialist within the next coupe of days, the doctors have an idea of whats going on, so the doctor was concerned about making me comfortable. The Doctor came in to tell me that she was releasing me from her care, but that I was able to stay and that the nurses had orders to continue giving me the meds that I needed, untilI felt that I was able to head home. The care that I have been receiving from our doctors and nurses this time that Ive been sick has been great, I know that this is not the case for most, as I could hear others talking of other ER’s around the area and how they had to wait for hours just to be seen by a doctor. I felt that telling my story can give hope to others that are needing to go to the ER. I feel that the doctors and Nurses dont get told enough how well they are doing. We only hear of how long the wait is and how long we have to wait for tests, and appointments.
I just wanted to share my story and to thank the Doctors and Nurses for the wonderful treatment and care that I received at Lake Ridge Health Bowmanville.
