ER, House, Gray's Anatomy...
FULL OF SHIT!
Turns out they don't actually try to diagnose a damn thing...
This is how a "Real" hospital works:
Patient (my mom - Mama Bear) arrives complaining about crushing chest pains, difficulty breathing, and naseous. Hospitals checks for everything heart related. Keeps patient overnight running blood tests. Give patient stress test at 11 am the following day. FINALLY - 8:30 PM Dr comes to see patient only to say "all your tests are normal, I'm discharging you" (without so much as producing a stethascope).
Patients children, "uh, hell no Dr. If it's not the heart, what's causing these symptoms in my mom?"
Dr, "all her cardiac tests are normal, she needs to follow up with her primary care physician to find out what's wrong with her".
I think he's still in a coma from the CLOSED FIST PUNCH TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!
Fast forward through 3-days of Dr visits Mama Bear is feeling better. They ruled out heart and gall stones (but did find lesions on her liver that now have to be monitored) but they still don't know what caused the cardiac pain/symptoms. They are blaming it on stress and acid reflux.
Poor Mama Bear!
