'How do you train a person to care?'
Not so long ago there was the call to 911 from a different kind of hospital without full facilities that went so horribly, but this is particularly stomach-turning... a real hospital where real 911 call patients are taken.
The days of the trustworthy family doc making housecalls are certainly over, but this is the US! God help us all :(
I had a great experience at the ER this past week, and several before, I do want to note. OK, hardly a thing was wrong and they weren't busy, but they seemed on top of things and certainly didn't seem the type to let a woman die on the floor as the janitor mopped around her...
I say JAIL at this point. Seriously. Doctors, etc aren't God and they aren't untouchable, are they? I swear this feels criminal, IMHO.
The 911 operator [the 2nd call in the link] sounded so annoyed with the call - I heard it on abc this morning. They could have taken the lady to a different hospital, surely, but he seemed uninterested in thinking outside of the box.
I want y'all as my 911 staff, docs, nurses, cops etc! What is wrong with some people? So sad.
