Losing Your Appetite For Private Care

| Employees, Health & Body, Ignoring & Inattentive

(I am 15. A nurse perforates my eardrum while syringing it, which is incredibly painful, and is left to heal naturally for months. When it doesn’t, I have to have a myringoplasty to repair it. My parents pay for a private room, and after my surgery I stay overnight in the hospital.)

Nurse: *takes pulse and BP* “Did you decide what you want for dinner yet?”

(I’m not a foodie, and rarely have an appetite.)

Me: “No, I’m not really hungry.”

Nurse: “It doesn’t matter. You have to eat something.”

(I eventually give in and agree to eat a boiled egg. When this is brought to me, I take two bites and promptly vomit them back up along with everything else in my stomach. I’m too weak from my head surgery to even sit up on my own. I press the button to get a nurse, but there’s no response. After five minutes, I press it again. Another five minutes pass and a nurse finally appears.)

Nurse: *walks in, sees me literally LYING IN A POOL OF VOMIT, and impatiently tells me* “Yes, we’ll be with you in a minute.”

(And this, my friends, was in a private hospital.)
