I went there with severe stomach pain yesterday morning. The ER did: 1. blood/urine tests 2. EKG and blood test 3. ultrasound 4. monitoring of blood pressure, pulse and oxygen levels.
That's it! (I'm ok btw)
Ok, 2 things:
1. There was nobody in the ER. One nurse told me that barely 15 people a day come. Also, other ER's and hospitals in the area are calling them with the same complain: no people. I also learned that some people came just to get checked for covid, but they didn't have it.
2. on my discharge papers I found something very interesting in the "medications/orders placed in the ER department". It lists all of the tests they did, one by one, ....and:
"Oxygen Therapy 04/30/20 09:46:00 PDT, Routine, Nasal Cannula, PRN, titrate to maintain SpO2 grater than or equal to 90% and less than or equal to 94%"
Why the H is this in my papers? I was not on oxygen. Am I reading it correctly?
