NEVER EVER EVER again will I allow my body to be taken to Ohio health Grove city. They left me in a room for 6 hours alone with a debilitating headache that happened after we think I had a seizure while napping. They tried goofy ass medicine to help. I had some allergy medicine, some nausea medicine (not suffering from either of those things), got hooked up to a magnesium pump...never hears of that. No Tylenol. No motion. None of the typical meds I get after seizures for my rebound headaches. Every time I am admitted for my seizures/rebound headaches I am given something that starts with a D in my iv and break through meds like Tylenol. Here, they asked me "what normally works"...I told them. The Dr said ok, we will try that! Tells me he is setting up trash port for me to be sent to another hospital for monitoring, neurologist meetings, pain management and a spinal tap.
3 hours later (officially been here 6 hours now)
I am in agony. Alone. Crying harder than a kid who's favorite toy burnt along side his favorite dog. Bawling. In pain! I push the button. Nurse comes in. "Can you tell me when their is ordering my pain med because im really hurting."
She saids....uhh... I'll get the Dr.
A new dr now.
Tells me he ain't giving me that medicine. Wants me to be admitted for long term care after I tell him I don't have insurance and can't pay for long term care. I came for relief for tonight. That's it. The rest I need to work out. He treated me like a drug addict criminal. Spoke over me 100 times as I tried to explain my situation with tears falling down my face onto my gown. Didn't offer any solutions. Laughed when I told him how Dr's west treated me. Says my previous Dr never said that I'd get meds (Cody heard him say it). As did the nurse. I told him I wanted my papers and IV out and he laughed. "What you think now you can get up and walk when you're in all this pain?" As he laughed...... he treated me like a drug seeking bum which I've NEVER been. What did I do? Yanked my iv out, threw all my cords put on my sandles and took off walking. In the 32 degree weather. Down Springtown rd at 1am. While the nurses and Dr's laughed at my pain and anger.
Now I'm in worst pain and refusing treatment at that hospital ever again.... And if I pop a damn aneurysm tonight....I want that place held liable for not taking me serious. I will never step foot in that hospital again. @ohiohealthgrovecity
