Stephen McMenamin who is a former U.S. Marine was at a hospital with his wife Hanna when they experienced something they will never be able to erase from their minds. The couple witnessed an outrageous scene, and the images they took of that horrific scene caused outrage in the whole country.
In the waiting room of the hospital, Stephen and his wife were shocked to see a man in a wheelchair who obviously needed urgent medical care – and no medical staff. As they later revealed in a Facebook post, that elderly man had been waiting to receive medical care for more than three hours.
And that’s not all. Sharing the waiting room with them was also another man who couldn’t breathe or even sit up straight. When a nurse finally came to speak to him, she told him to take a seat and wait until someone will be available to take care of him. Nor him or the man in the wheelchair were in no condition to wait.
Now, there are many incredible men and women who genuinely care about their patients and treat them with the kindness and respect they deserve. But there are also cases like the one made public by Stephen and his wife. And it’s important that people know about them so that a solution can be found.
