I used to go in a lot as a kid for strep throat...and once for fractured ribs when I was 15, at the time I didn't know they were fractured. I'm 20 years old now and my mother is still paying off that bill and all they did was a bunch of ex-rays.
When my mom was in a motorcycle accident she was transported to the hospital by ambulance. Her and my dad didn't have their insurance info on them due to the circumstances of the accident. All the hospital did was staple my moms head back together and then pushed her out into the waiting room to go home. They wouldn't mess with her anymore then that because she couldn't prove she had insurance, which she has very good insurance. Turns out, the next day when she went to her family dr she had a broken leg and 3 fractured discs in her neck and back.
Quoting MIA0223:My husband went with back pain so bad he couldn't walk.
He got crappy treatment. They wouldn't even give him anything for the pain, wouldn't give him any tests but a blood test that the nurse messed up. She had to stick him 3 times and let the blood squirt from his arm all over the bed, floor, wall.
They did nothing for him, have the diagnosis as in explained back pain that happens to adults at least once in their life :/
Im sorry your husband got crappy treatment. Hope he is better now.
