Three weeks ago my son went to another local hospital ER complaining of
urinating blood that felt like razorblades. He was eventually seen, told
he had a kidney infection and given an antibiotic and a pain pill. The
next morning a fellow employee saw him convulsing on the security screen
at his work and rushed him back to the same ER. After a very lengthy wait,
the doctor said he was sure it was not a seizure because he had no history
of them and there was absolutely no way it could have been a reaction
to the meds given. He was instructed to go home and continue on the meds
which he did. That evening I rushed him back to, unfortunately, the same
ER with red spots all over him including inside his mouth and on his tongue.
After another lengthy wait, we gave up and thankfully went to Monroe Hospital.
The service was prompt, courteous and most importantly, very professional.
He was in front of a doctor within 10 minutes of arrival who assessed
that his condition had to be one of three possibilities, all of which
were serious and/or life threatening. It was definitely a reaction to
the antibiotic given at the first hospital. Two nurses were instantly
drawing blood and running tests. Within a very few minutes, we were told
his condition and that he needed to be with a group of specialists immediately.
The doctor told us if it wasn’t so windy, he would be on a chopper
to Indianapolis, but would have to go by ambulance. My son spent several
days in critical care at Methodist hospital where he received the care
needed and made a full recovery. If it had not been for the competence
and speed of the staff of the Monroe Hospital ER, I don’t believe
my son would be with us today. Not only do you have my eternal gratitude,
but my family’s future health care as well.
