On October 4, 2012 on or around 6pm I sustained an mild stroke. I drove myself to the Peace River regional Medical Center and checked in to the Emergency Room.
I was sequestered on a gurney in a room directly across from the Nurses Station with four chattering nurses available. I had leads/sensors attached to my upper body draped with a sheetappx 7:15 pm in ancol ( appx 50 degree room and deserted from any caregivers..
After appx. 2 hours of no care I got up, got dressed and announce that i wasn’t putting up with anymore of this lack of care and drove myself home about 15 miles away
from the hospital..
I did not hear anything until receiving my first bill for what they claimed was their service rendered.
