So, after being sick after surgery, I reluctantly go to the hospital. I was very ill, and could barely walk. I get to the hospital, and immediately get bombareded with forms to sign. I scrawled a signature, now, I am in the waiting room, violently ill. A nurse calls my name, to come back to a room. She was impatient that I was snapping up to her command, the paperwork queen tells her I am too sick to walk. She tells the paperwork queen to put me in a wheelchair. Paperwork queen says "that is not my job". Yes, they are fighting over whose job it is to help a sick patient. Nurse Ratchet roughly throws me into the wheelchair, and speeds around the ER with me, she skids into a room, and slams the wheelchair, into the bed. I scream from pain, as this has just felt like a knife in my leg, where they did surgery earlier.

Great. The rest of the night continues...even worse.

That's terrible I would call and write a letter to the hospital board of directors or a nurse manager and complain. I am sorry to hear that this has happened to you. What kind of surgery was it if I may ask? This is what's called no bedside manner. If it were me and I wasn't in agony I would have cursed both of them out and possibly hit one of them LOL.The worst thing an employee of a hospital or any profession could say is "it's not my job". I hope you get better soon
