Having been in EMS for a long time, 28 years, the last place you want to be having an emergency ALONE is outside a hospital at 4am. You see, it turns out that unless it’s on a fri/sat night AND a busier facility, there’s no one outside or at least rarely, and anymore all the doors are locked because crazies.
This is a horrible situation and one where she undoubtably suffered both physically and mentally being so close to a place of safety. All I can say is if you are having an emergent, and real medical emergency alone go to the local OPEN convenience store. They have people there, frequently cops hang out there and you will be noticed so a 911 call can get an ambulance to you.
If you choose to go to the hospital, park in the ambulance bay, pound on that door.
Well this story ruined my morning, fuck....
I hope the hospital and emergency services can use this as a learning opportunity and make some changes. Certainly no one wanted this outcome.
