on the issue of er doctors being terrible, i am an er nurse. our focus is not on long term care. it's on seeing that your airway doesn't close and you don't drop dead. otherwise, you have to follow up with long term care. there is no way in the world we can possibly answer all the questions regarding medication, etc, in the short window we see you. it sounds to me like you got good care :). the doctors were probably more focused on the patient having a heart attack in another room, or the person they were going to have to intubate. that's just the way it is.. believe me, it's more often than not absolute hell for us too.
