Donna Penrod: Mercy ER failed this patient

May 15, 2014 

This is in response to the letter ( “We need neurologists,” April 21) regarding the ER at Mercy Medical Center. I had a similar experience at the ER. I had pseudomonia pneumonia, had coughed for over five hours and was very sick. I was sent home only to return four days later and was finally admitted to the hospital. There is much more to this story, but the bottom line is: What good is the ER?
