ER After My Car Wreck

When I got in my car accident, I suffered a serious neck sprain, and the ambulance had to take me away to the nearest emergency room.  I had never been to an emergency room Houston before, and so I really did not know what to expect when I got there.  The place was full of people, all suffering from different kinds of injuries and illnesses, but I was comforted by the fact that the nurses regularly checked in with me in order to let me know when I would be seeing a doctor.  It was something that was comforting even though I had just been through a traumatic experience.  While much of what they did while I was waiting for the doctor was strictly out of precaution, it made me feel good knowing that they were willing to take care of me in whatever ways were necessary.

It is not very often that you will hear someone tell you that they had a good experience in an emergency room, but I can honestly say that this is the case in my experience.  The doctor got to me quickly and performed all the necessary tests in order to make completely sure that there was no serious damage done to my neck, and I was actually able to go home in a manner of hours.  Really, the entire time that I was there, all I wanted was to go home and lie in my own bed.  They understood this, and they assured me that I would be sent home as quickly as possible.

Well, as far as hospitals go, I must say that I definitely had a good experience at this one.  If I am ever in a similar situation, I hope that this is the emergency room that I am sent to
