Indeed, it is outrageous that nothing seems to change at St. Joseph's. They almost killed me six years ago. I arrived in the emergency room in excruciating pain and very sick. They came to what for them was the obvious conclusion, with no evidence to back it up--that I must've been a lying drug seeker. They basically threw me out of the ER without doing any scan or test. Later that night I had to be rushed to Mad River, where they did do a scan and tests, and I was admitted for emergency surgery for a hemorrhaging double ovarian torsion. The surgeon at MRCH told me I would've been dead soon without surgery. The pain and sickness were indescribable. I later discovered that the St Joe's ER doctor who "treated" me was later promoted to head of the department. I've since heard similar stories. Something is very wrong there.
