Pitt Co. Memorial Hospital (North Carolina) Informative - Treatment and sanitary issues
GREENVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA -- On March 12,2007 I was Life flighted to Pitt Co. Memorial Hospital at 5:00 a.m.. I had fallen asleep at the wheel with my vehicle on cruise control@70 mph on Interstate 64 west. The first thing I really remember was my father talking to me. He was asking me why I was laying in blood soaked sheets and why was my head wound not taken care of. I had no idea what he was talking about. I asked him where I was and how long had I been there. He told me that I had been in the hospital for 5 hours Bleeding and laying in my own blood. He left me, but upon his return I was taken care of Immediately. I think it is a shame that someone with a head injury has to have a relative threaten vioilence to get something done in an emergency room. I received 13 stitches and 8 staples to close my head so that does not sound like a minor cut.
