Motel 6 Complaint - No help for injury at Motel 6
HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND -- On January 29, 2010, I stayed at Motel 6 in Hagerstown, MD. About 5 P.M. I went out and on the way, my hand hit the "knob" lock on the door, which ripped a 1/2 inch by 1/3rd inch triangular tear in the top of my hand. I went to the office and asked for first-aid. The man on duty had several people trying to check in, and was reluctant, at best, to help. I stood there, bleeding, and he finally began searching the office for something to give me. He finally came up with a tube of first aid cream and a pad which had no way to fasten it on my skin. One kind woman, waiting to check in, gave me a band-aid from her purse. The man at the deas asked, in a belittling manner, if I wanted to go to the hospital? I went back to my room and attempted to use these items. They were totally inadequate. I then went out to the Dollar Store next to the motel and found little to help. I had to cruse around to find a drugstore and finally gave up. I knew that somewhere in my luggage I had a large band-aid so I unloaded my car (hand was still bleeding) and at last found the large band-aid and put it over the wound.
The next morning I told the woman at the desk what had happened. She was clearly surprised, but no help was forthcoming. Today is Friday, February 4th, and I will have to go to a clinic in Americus, GA (where I am stayiung for three months) and will have to pay to have this wound taken care of.
