"X ray dept"

About: Horton General Hospital

An elderly gentleman who has been in terrible pain for a long time eventually got an appointment at x ray. He was treated very poorly and has now just been left in limbo. He was given a ultra sound and then told he needed an MRI the next thing he knew was that the man doing the ultra sound disappeared and a nurse came in and told the elderly man to get dressed and go home. He has heard nothing since and is very confused about the whole thing. Meanwhile he is still in terrible pain. I think that whoever dealt with this gentleman should be ashamed of themselves. To treat a decorated veteran in this manner is disgusting. I will be taking this further.
