Medical Records Released: Dallas hospital ER sent Ebola (Duncan) patient home with 103 degree temp.
DALLAS (AP) -- Thomas Eric Duncan's temperature spiked to 103 degrees during the hours of his initial visit to an emergency room - a fever that was flagged with an exclamation point in the hospital's record-keeping system, his medical records show.

Despite telling a nurse that he had recently been in Africa and displaying other symptoms that could indicate Ebola, the man who would become the only person to die from the disease in the U.S. underwent a battery of tests and was eventually sent home.

This woman should not be a nurse. They need to send her back to all the classes until she knows how to do her job properly. The FIRST lesson in being an RN is you must LISTEN!

That's nothing.


'Round here you get sent home with "indigestion" for everything from heart attacks to chronic liver failure.

Always take an advocate with you, preferably one with the temperament of a bulldog.

Same here. I won't go to the ER even if I was dying. They are so incompetent. Oh the stories.... I know someone who had a goiter and was told it was a panic attack. A lady down the road rolled her ankle was sent home with a cold pack. they went to their family doc and it was a compound fracture. Another person with very very high blood sugar was talked to about being a hypochondriac.
