What's You Emergency Room Horror Story?
November 28, 2017 1:57pm CST
Here in Canada while we do have universal health care which is a great thing, wait times for surgery and especially emergency rooms can be horrendous . Recently, there has been discussion here on a person being told to " Lie On The Floor" as there were no chairs or beds available in an Ontario emergency Department. What's your worst experience in a Hospital emergency room?

My last visit, I had bruises all over my face from a terrible fall. They kept trying to discuss domestic violence, which I'm not a victim of! After the third questioning from the doctor, they finally gave up on it. My story never once changed!
Wow!...I can see that they have an obligation to recognise and ask when it comes to domestic violence, but I would also think the last thing you need going into emerg. is to be questioned like this when you have a fall and need medical treatment
I've hear that some smaller cities and towns have better access to doctors and shorter wait times , yes,... but I've also heard the exact opposite . In Canada, there seems to be very few doctors willing to practice in smaller communities it seems
