I'm needing some advice- I'm doing what i think I need to in order to stand up for me, my health and whats right! Wednesday I was involved in a hit and run on my bicycle. No, not a seizure first, just a nice bike wreak. As the person who saw it came up he said I was twitching- Um yeah, I had knocked myself clean out! Even with a helmet! Anyways long story short when the ambualnce crew got there they were like "oh its ashley" (I used to work in the ER, so many of them know me). Anyways besides getting a substandard level of care I think they might have violated my HIPPA rights. They didn't even listen to me when I was telling them my hip hurt, they just told me it was road rash. It was double the size of normal and they thought it was dislocated. No, they didn't even care that I was in excruciating pain. But thats not the kicker! The officer asked what was happening (inside the ambulance) and you know what they said? "They're just pseudoseizures". Which is ironic because my doctor has deemed my seizures as epileptic seizures and I'm still on 2 medications to treat them. Don't you think they should treat them as such? That's not really the point, but what I'm saying is that my seizures had nothing to do with any of that! WHY did the EMT think that it was pertinent information for the officer? I'm mad and I feel like my rights were violated and I was violated!! HELP!
