Living With HIV / Re: Treated in the medical detention wing of a hospital
« Last post by J.R.E. on February 18, 2024, 05:20:16 pm »

Just thinking here,.... Perhaps the hospital was at capacity, and this was the only space available.

My neighbor , went to the emergency room two weeks ago, and was there for 13 hours, in a holding position, before a bed was available.

My niece up in NY, waited about 12 hours, after going to the emergency room, even after the doctor called to get a room ready for her, before she wenr to ER. She went into the hospital for blood in the stools, also currently going chemo treatment for breast cancer

In both cases, hospitals are once again being overloaded with Flu and covid cases, so I am wondering if this may be the case.

Hope you are doing better.

St James's Hospital?
It’s Vincent’s I go.  I ended up at Vincent’s, as I went to A&E there nearly 6 years ago for violent coughing & got admitted, found out I’d pneumonia, then eventually got the poz news, so it became my ID clinic by default. It’s the only clinic I’ve ever attended. I like it there, know all the staff for years now & get really good help there.
Holistic ethos for us poz patients & always happy to check out other health issues that may affect us.

Is this a common practice? For overflow contingency perhaps?

I went to the ER. Triaged and processed in. Laying on the gurney, IV in the arm, waiting for a room. Bed came available they wheeled me out

Turn down a hallway and went through a set of secure doors. Into a jail. There were prisoners and cops in the space. It was built to jail specs

It bothered me. Mixed feelings, I'm grateful for the care. But I went for medical care, not a weekend in jail.

Also, pissing blood and stones the whole time.

So, how are y'all doing?

Sorry to hear you are unwell and pissing blood. Hope you feel better soon.

If you are offered a shower remember not to bend over whilst picking up the soap

               ojo.               Hello there!… good numbers! .how about your cholesterol, you said your attorney 61 has your doctor suggested any cholesterol lower medication?. I think that my cholesterol is around same as yours even though I’m taking  a statin med and my doctor doesn’t seem to be concerned. I’m sorry about your pre-diabetic X. To tell you the truth and know anything about diabetes… keep up the good work and please keep us posted and again congratulations for those  envidable bloodwork results…hugs

Hi Tonny, she said she did not want to prescribe any additional medication other than my ARV's. I think she is expecting me to put in the hard work in the gym and kitchen. She did spot it though.

I love this thread! Only because it always gets a bump the week before I go to the doctor and get my blood work done. This is a great reminder. Thank you all for having labs around the same time I do and posting about them. LOL
