On June 12,2013 I tripped and fell face first into a brick wall. After bleeding copious amounts of blood, I was found by my husband. We gathered several towels in an attempt to keep the car clean. After arriving to the ER we were signed in and told to wait. After 5 minutes of sobbing in pain they brought me back to a sink and had me clean off some of the blood running down my arms and legs. They took my info and vital signs and told us that there was 4 people ahead of us so it will be awhile. The pain I was in was incredible and the blood was still gushing and I was crying. The 4 people ahead of me had no visual emergencies. I can't believe that there is no exceptions to the first come first serve policy. The nurse practitioner I saw seemed unsympathetic and the nurses giving shots had to be shown by another nurse how to give the shot. Things seemed unorganized and we waited a long time inbetween seeing nurses. I pray that I won't have anymore true emergencies while living in Kokomo!

This is a review of the sleep center on Sycamore.Well over $4,000.00 for one night. Price is not discussed up front, but perhaps they would have told me if I'd inquired directly enough. Turns out there is another sleep clinic right down the road that is considerably less expensive. Makes me wonder at the motive behind the referral, but I'm sure they had MY best interest in mind. LOL The place is clean and is like a hotel room. The staff is nice. Got no answer to my sleep problem from this expensive hotel stay, but they want to send me to specialists and want to schedule more doctor appointments and run more tests. No thanks. Do yourself a favor and research thoroughly b/f scheduling a sleep clinic stay to make sure you will really need it. I saw an online article called "The High Cost of a Good Night's Sleep" that I found beneficial, but too late for me.
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.
