its not just you wrote:
A good friend of mine had to take their 10 week old infant there for a severe respiratory infection and the Dr. That saw them wrote them a prescription to take to the pharmacy. After an unusually long wait to have the Rx filled, my good friend asked what the hold up was and they were told that the prescribed dose was 14 times the amount the baby would need. If the people at the pharmacy had not caught this mistake and they had given the medication the baby would have been overdosed.
Oh my! I do hope this was reported to the hospital. This is sad.

Yes - I love how the government sends billions of dollars everywhere else but nobody has dental care much less health care. I heard about that little boy- no dentist would see him because he did not have insurance.
nobody speaks up

we need to take care of our own people, think about it, the gov't wouldn't exist with it starting out with us in the first place, too much apathy in todays society, when s*it hits the fan, I bet I won't be close to going down. too many things causing this problem to talk on a board that is not serious anyway...see you on the other side...sigh.

Yes you can DIE from an infected tooth. Have you ever heard of sepsis? Look up about a little boy who was 5 who died from that on another state b/c his mother could not afford a dentist! Yet, we send all our money to other countries!
Yes, I've heard of sepsis. My point is... If the local hospital is so bad and all you have is a toothache, then you have time to go somewhere else!! You won't die overnight. Don't complain about the care you receive, but then you keep going there as if you have no choice.

Hey, it does not matter if one is going in for a toothache or a freakin headache, your still to be treated with dignity and repsect! Where should one go miss know it all, if you were in pain, pus coming from your tooth, had no money or insurance and a dentist will not see you b/c your not a regular patient or they want you to wait 3 months?? Don't down someone and judge until you have been there!!!!!!!!!! And yes, the damn hospital sucks ass, the ER anyway. It should not be like that. If I am having a heart attack, should I go, oh, wait, I need to drive an hour away to go to another hospital b/c this one is not good and hope I don't die? WTH is the use of having a damn hospital????? You sound stupid!

Who is begging for insurance? Where did you read that???? I am not a free loader, I work my ass off. I dont ask anyone for a free ride, But I do think each and every AMERICAN should have dental/health care. Is that too much to ask for??? No one even mentioned Obama and his health care BS. We should however, take care of the people of this country FIRST!!!!!!!!!! I don't see anyone sending aid to us? Do you?

I agree with the old saying that "charity begins at home!" I've always believed that we should take care of every American before we money to other countries!

Sorry Fed up but I disagree and if you don't want to believe me ( http://worldental.org/gums/abscessed-tooth-co... ) Maybe you can get a job down there because they have no clue what they are doing nether. I had my fill with the ER. I've taken both friends and family members there and each time having to wait and wait and wait while watching doctors and nurse's laugh and cut up not doing their jobs. You are partly right about the drug user/dealers. One of them confronted me and my dad asking if we wanted to buy any. Cops haul his ass away due to a tip from two guys..hehehe. To me this world is really fucked up. Ask yourself "why do they become Doctors or Nurses"? Is it to help people or is it for the money? Think about this, Insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, Blue cross, Blue shield, Obamacare, etc. Everyday of Each year we pay taxes...for what? Police? Firefighters? Land of The Free indeed!!! Everything has a tax on it and with all the money you would think the government would do something about giving people healthcare they could afford.

Well for whatever case if you go into the actual hospital itself it isnt bad at all, had good folks take care of me. The E.R. on the other hand is just a damn joke,ER=800 dollar bill and Ibuprofen meanwhile your health problems have multiplied and you have to spend another couple hundred on a private practice doctor just to get a true diagnoses... ER docs in this town are bottom of the barrel scum with maybe one exception, they rob insurance companies and medicare and the hospital gets paid well for it so it continues. Its like a drive thru but you just get robbed by the establishment and have to accept it and your too sick to disagree

How many of you posting here were referred to the hospital/Er after first going to your normal general/family practitioner?

I have been to many hospitals over the years and I will tell you this, ALL of them have their short comings so to speak. I have seen horrible care at UVA, Duke and Roanoke. Everyone has to be an advocate for their loved ones and if someone is seriously ill, someone should be with them at all times. Sad, but true. However, the ER at ARH really needs to be cleaned up of ignorant doctors and nurses. Granted, there are a few of them that are good and I KNOW nurses work their butts off, but there are a few that I would like to tar and feather for how I was treated there once. I don't understand how someone can become a nurse when your a total jackass, why do you want to work around people if your just a asshole? One nurse was so mean to me at that ER, I was suffering from chest pains and the nurse was mad b/c the doc ordered a test and she was kicking the trash can around, I was in tears. Imagine being afraid your having a heart attack and have a nurse from hell treat you like that. I was totally helpless. Of course, I ended up ok, but still, the memories are there of how I was treated. But I will say this, one day, these nurses and docs will be laying in a bed sick and I hope they get the same treatment! I also had a friend who had fainted once and I went to the er to be with her and she was laying there with her boobs showing knocked out on some shot they gave her, the curtain was wide open, I was soo pissed!

i've had nothing but good experiences at LGA. Some nurses are nicer than others but they treated me and my family professionally. I guess when you have to deal with obnoxious drunks and crack heads all the time you can get a little testy. Not everybody is as perfect as you people are. You shouldn't judge until you have had the pleasure to deal with the drunks and crack heads they put up with. Spit on, hit, punched, grabbed in private places, equipment thrown at them and cussed at.
bull crap

bull crap... a abcess tooth can lead to blood poisoning its happened a lot to people and antibotics needs started soon to keep that from happening and the pain is bad too.. i have seen my daughter cry with her wisdom teeth hurting her... i do think it should be treated at the emergency room.......instead of all these kids running in there oh my back hurts my nerves are bad and they get their drugs.... but someone else can get help like antibotics and pain meds til they can get into a dentist which can take weeks around here...

Working with difficult people comes with the job. I know that no one needs to be talked to in a bad way, but i sure as heck do not need some nurse on an ego trip treating me like shit when I am laying there thinking I am having a heart attack! Would you want a nurse kicking a stool and trash can and slamming stuff around while you or your loved one was laying there thinking you were dying? I think not, she was a total BITCH!
