The worst time to be in a hospital is on weekends. My step-dad was taken by rescue at approximately 6AM Saturday morning. As of right now, 42 hours after being admitted, they still don't have any answers for us. He has been intubated since he arrived but they have him sedated because he tries to pull the stuff out. Why? because he can breathe on his own. No real reason for intubation, except maybe just waiting for Monday morning. Since I'm ranting, I will rant about insurance & doctors as well. He's been seen by his group of doctors for over 10 years. Since this was an emergency, he was taken to the nearest hospital. Not our choice and not where his doctors are on board. My mom calls his doctors and they say that there isn't anything that they can do since the insurance will not pay them since they are not affiliated with that hospital. OK, all she is asking as that maybe they can give the hospital his medical history with them and maybe, just maybe give her some reassurance. As soon as he's stable we plan on moving him to our prefered hospital but in the meantime, can they just toss us a bone??? Geez.
Rant over. For now.
