I am a 71-year-old veteran in good health. I’ve never been in an emergency room. However, I became ill while working under my RV in the hot sun a few weeks ago. I was told to go to the ER at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Hospital.
It was a Monday, and it was full of sick people. I waited two hours before I saw a doctor, plus two RNs and an X-ray technician.
That was the best care I have ever received anywhere. I had oxygen, IV fluids, blood work, etc. They fixed my problem, and now I am back in good health. The VA does an excellent job helping veterans.
