Use them!!!!!! When you are in the ER they give you a call button. Push the little button if you need a blankie or a drink or have to weewee. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop standing in the damn doorway ambushing the first person you happen to see walking down the hall. The person who answers the call button is in a position to help you. The person you ambush may not even be a member of the ER staff, and more likely than not is already on their way to do something else. I have actually been ambushed for a blanket request WHILE PUSHING A PATIENT DOWN THE HALL ON A STRETCHER. You are given the button for a reason. Use it.
Shut up

I work in the ER in Owensboro and we see the same thing. Family members lurk in the doorways and grab the first person walking by. After you have given them the call bell. I've given up. You can't fix stupid.

I know it must b hectic and frustrating for people that work in emergency rooms but u should really take into account that sometimes people r scared or hurting or both and may not b thinking clearly. It may not matter to u but I'm sure ur employer would not b happy to lose patients and there is one hospital emergency room that I will no longer go to because the personnel was so awful. If u can't handle this then maybe the er is not the appropriate position for u. U r there by choice and as patients we r not and it just compounds what we r already going thru when we r treated badly.

You ever think they stalk in the doorways because they've hit that call light and not been answered? Get over yourself, I also am in the medical field and have health problems and have spent my fair share in the ER if the nurses can't handle the load they've been given maybe put a few CNA's in there just for the purpose of answering the calls for a blanket, drink, or help to the restroom....geez

I recently went to one of the local ERs for something I won't put on topics. I had an iv in my arm and it was causing me great pain. So, I pressed the button hoping for help. Instead, 1/2 hr later, after trying to press it again, someone finally came in. I was in tears. I'm not exactly sure what happened, she said the iv basically feel out or something like that, I was too upset to really care. I just wanted it fixed. If I had someone else with me you bet your ass I would have had them go to the nurse station after 10 or 15 minutes of waiting. But no, I had to wait a half hr because I was alone, on an iv, and in a gown. Grr! You think you have a right to complain?? Ha! This hilarious!

If the local er u r talking about is in Newburgh I agree about the care. They were so incredibly nasty there that I left and waited to b seen elsewhere because of how I was treated.

They must have asked 10 times if I was in pain and every time I said no. It got very frustrating and everyone I dealt with was so rude.

No, I agree if you've rung the bell and no one comes in a decent amount of time, go for it. I'm talking about people who simply refuse to use the call bell.
Good care

I dunno. I went there a few months ago after twisting my ankle and everyone was really nice. I had to wait awhile to go to a room and almost as soon as I got in a room they took me out and put me in a chair in a smaller waiting room but they were nice about it. I didnt like getting charged for a room cause of that. But once they got me xrayed and stuff I got some pain medicine and a boot and everyone was real nice even though there was a full waiting room. And the place looked really nice and clean.
