Alabama Clinic Forgets Patient In Exam Room Trapped After Hours
Imagine being a nurse and after an exhausting shift, you head to your local clinic to get a test done. Dianne King, 46, is a nurse from Adamsville Alabama. After her shift on November 10th, she went to the American Family Care located at 1664 Forestdale Blvd in Forestdale Alabama. Scroll to the bottom to see her Facebook live video..
You arrive at the clinic at 4 pm, you are moved from the waiting room to an examination room at 6 pm. The normal procedure, we can all say the wait times in clinics can feel like a lifetime. You get swabbed by the nurse practitioner and the wait begins.
So as Dianne King waited for her results, she dozed off. I know I am guilty of that myself. Well, the staff at American Family Care also fell asleep on the job. She woke up and found herself to be the only person in the building! Yes, left alone by the staff.
She did a live Facebook video!
How can anyone forget there’s a patient in an examination room? Forget a patient that is waiting for test results? Let’s say that did happen…when you left didn’t a bell go off when there was one singular car left in the parking lot? I mean is it that hard to remember…there must have been a patient chart laying around.
As she made her way out to the lobby, it was very evident she was alone. Thankfully she was able to make her way into the parking lot where her car was the only one there. I hope they don’t bill her for the visit...
