I visited NE Orthopedic today and had an horrible expericence. After my doctor left the room, the nurse(?) came in and told be sit up (on the table) and she explained the material, she then placed on the table across the room.She then left and closed the door. After about 15 mins., I got really concerned. I needed a stool (that was under the table) which I could not reach, and there was no way I could jump off with a bad knee and back, plus I am 75 years old and have problems with balance. After 15 mins. I .became really concerned that no one knew I was in there.
After 30 mins. the same nurse came in and said I could have left 10 mins. ago and I said no, more like 30 mins. I told her I could not get off the table and she said the stool was there. I told her I could not reach it and she pulled the stool out and walked out the door. She did not try to help me in any way. I almost had a panic attach and I will never again be left in a room alone with the door closed. I feel I was treated very badly and the woman made no apology. She needs to be in another kind of work.
