My 3 year old Grandson got a taste of Obamacare this past weekend. He was at the playground, fell forward and hit his forehead on a metal part of the playground equipment. immediately a huge bruise with a deep black and blue dent in his forehead.
Immediately went to the Emergency Care Center. They asked who his primary physician was and to call him. We called him. He was on vacation with no backup. Asked the nurses to at least look at him. No. We can’t help you.
Left, went to Children’s Hospital (annex) - same response. We can’t touch him.
Finally drove downtown and he was eventually seen. 5 hours later.
It’s a nightmare.
And it’s only going to get worse.
Thanks for sharing your story — hope your Grandson is OK, despite of this lack of care.
Earlier this year my son was running a very high fever that wasn’t responding to home treatment so we took him to our local Children’s Hospital ER in downtown Cincinnati.
I kid you not, they took an inmate in chains, who did not appear to have any immediate medical ailment, before they saw our son.
We waited hours in the waiting room, his fever broke, we left and followed up with his pediatrician the next morning.
A completely useless visit. Perhaps we should have brought him in wearing chains and an orange jumpsuit?
