It is so disheartening when you visit the hospital in a small rural town to be met with the welcome, what’s your emergency!? Very well knowing that sometimes, going to the hospital Emergency Department is the only option we have. Even if it isn’t life threatening we shouldn’t be made to feel that we aren’t welcome.
Numerous times I’ve visited the nurses in the triage, I believe they make you feel as though you’re not sick enough to be seen by the doctor. More times than not, they’ll also give you what they think your diagnosis is before you’ve seen the doctor.
I full understand that being a nurse is an exhausting job and dealing with people all of the time can be hard. But that is their chosen profession.
Anyone visiting the Emergency Department isn’t doing it just for fun, they want peace of mind and someone to listen to them.
