On 05.10.17 I had to take my wife to St Joseph ER for extreme difficulty in her breathing. I got my wife to the ER at about 2330 Hrs. Due to her difficulty breathing she was taken directly to a room. The ER doctor Diana Yandell showed up within the first fifteen minutes. She examined her for about 90 seconds. When I attempted to give her some history about my wife and her condition I was shut down in short order. My wife has some very complex medical issues but doctor Yandell did not want to hear about them. After that brief exam doctor Yandell left. We did not see her again until about 0630 Hrs. During that time my wife had blood tests run, urine samples taken along with blood gases and x-rays. Dr. Yandell never went over any of the tests or x-rays with us. When she did come back she was eating something and my wife told her she wanted an antibiotic and cough medicine. Dr. Yandell responded K then left. In the eight plus hours we were in the ER doctor Yandell came to my wife's room exactly twice for a total of about three minutes, and that is being generous. To say we were less than impressed would be a giant understatement. When I went to pick up the prescriptions I found that she had prescribed an over the counter cough medicine, thanks a lot doc. Due to my wife's condition we have been to many hospitals throughout the state and this was our worst trip to any ER. For whatever reason this doctor was not on her game to be in the ER on this night and that is unexceptionable.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
