I agree!!!!
Union Co General Emergency Room is a Joke!
In my situation , I had s infected cyst causing unbearable pain. I asked the Dr. there for medication for the pain. He treated me like a drug adict. They took no blood test, urine anaylis or other test. Sent me home. In 12 hours I was near my wits end with the pain. I had my wife take me to Murphy Medical Center. The said is Septic (infection in the Blood) I was in an operating room within and hour of arriving a MMC. The DR. Told me that had I waited much longer I would have died due to the infection. Had I followed the direction of the ER of Union General I woould be dead. This is no Joke. I would not take the squirels at by birdfeeder to Union General ER for help. They DO NOT CARE. PERIOD!

Union General ER is a joke. Half the time you see a PA not a real MD. A friend of mine was there with really high blood pressure and chest pain and was given an Anti-anxiety med, blood pressure med and told it was because they had been eating too many hot dogs!!
Well

The ER is for EMERGENCIES. Not just to walk-in because you don't want to wait for the Dr's office to open. Everyone knows that. You would be surprised at WHAT THEY DO FOR PEOPLE AND THE LIVES THAT HAVE BEEN SAVED BY THEM!
Guess what

Well, eating crappy food like hot dogs will give you heart disease. They're full of fat (the bad kind), salt, and livestock entrails. If everyone would take some precautions and live a healthy lifestyle, then our health care system wouldn't be so strained. Then you would be able to see MDs instead of PAs, since they wouldn't be so overloaded with other patients to manage.

My experiences with UGH ER have been positive. I'm sorry if some of you had a bad time in there, but I haven't seen any of this with my own eyes.

I have heard horror stories also about the emergency room at Union General.. Some being my family members also.. They to have been sent home and had to end up going to Blue Ridge or Hiawassee where the real issue has been found after Union General sent them home. They need to do some major overhauling at Union General.

Well two experiences in my family have been with children under the age of one...No bad lifestyles there.. No excuses. I know of people that do live very healthly also, that is not a factor in some instances..

You are absolutely a liar.$8200 for two visits! Not the truth.
Besides, ER is not the place to find out that you have gall bladder problems. Why didn't you go to an internist or your family doctor when you continued to have problems? They would have found the problem was your gall bladder. You are the problem, not ER.

Are you serious?? Your saying that the ER is the wrong place to detect a bad gallbladder??? Oh my is right!! Have you ever had a gallbladder attack?? You'd know that it can cause chest pain, back pain, side pain, nausea, just as if your having a heart attack. I've seen many gallbladder attacks walk thru the ER and the Dr.'s were able to determine the cause. And an obstructed gallbladder is a serious and life threatening condition. If an EMERGENCY ROOM can't detect an EMERGENCY then they are definatly useless and idiotic!!

i agree with you. Oh my must be one of those grouchy receptionists who get annoyed when anyone comes in the e.r. With an emergency cause they might have to get up and do their job.
