This hospital is run more like a prison. I was transported by ambulace to this Cox Branson due to an insulin reaction. I had been aware of my surroundings prior to boarding the ambulance, which I walked to. Upon arrival at the hospital, I was alert to my surroundings. Upon arrival, the emergency room staff room staff called security to my room though I was not combative nor confrontative. At several moments, one guard placed me in holds that caused extreme pain. When I became angry about this, I was heavily sedated. I awakened in what I can only describe as an isolation ward. Upon awakening, I found that I had been kept sedated for two days, and that a catheter had been installed. I was in a bed that was alarmed, which sounded if I got off the bed. The room which I was in had no restroom, which left me using a commode. The tub for the commode was not kept in the room, forcing me to call the nurse if I needed to use it. The only information given for my hold was that I was being treated for an infection. I endured this until my release six days after my admission. When released from the hospital, I was told that I was being treated for bacterial menningitis. This was NOT confirmed by lumbar puncture (the only true way to positively identify the disease). I was told to expect a delivery of intrvenious antibiotics. The hospital had given the in home care company the wrong phone number. It finally arrived after I called the doctor. The following day, I got a phone call from the doctor that a home health nurse was trying to contact me. The nurse came to the house, and left, saying that the house was too filthy for in home treatments. This was yesterday. Here I sit with an IV pick catheter in my arm, and bags of intervenious medications that I am untrained to use, all that need to be taken for a disease that nobody is even sure I have. All because a security guard decided to perform painful holds on a person who was undeserving of the foul treatment inflicted by this hospital. Go to a different hospital if you can. Mercy in Springfield is a wonderful facility.
