My son was taken to the ER for chest pains. He has heart disease and has a pulmonary valve and pulmonary stent. He is only 15 and at the ER they did chest Xray, 3 lab tests and called another hospital to transport him. We were there for about 5 hours and on the records it shows a MD came to see him. There was 4 people in the room at all times and the dr never came into to even listen to his heartbeat check for swelling or anything. A PA came in twice to ask questions but also never touched his body. The nurse only came in for me to sign discharge paper for him to be transported to another hospital. My problem is he is a complicated case and we were there 5 hours with almost nothing being done something fatal could have happenedAlso the PA told us that his digoxin level was low and he might have a clot where his stent is which wasn't true i asked the other dr at the hospital we were taken to and he said that information was not right only if the level was high would it have caused a clot. my son has had 4 open heart surgeries and about 10 cardiac catherazations he was scared the pa said this right in front of him he didnt want any more procedures happening it was the worst treatment we have ever received. he did not receive anything for pain or even a drink of water when i talk to the ER management they swear up and down that he was examined and the patient or the 4 people there never saw any doctor in his room.
