Two Stars

I went to PVH o 1/11/18 with severe neck, head and shoulder pain, difficulty swallowing, swollen neck complaints. I was registered, triaged and saw the Dr within a fairly short time. I was in the ER for about 9 hours total. No blood work was requested. The CT scan that was ordered took several hours to get done. Before the CT scan was ordered I was put out of my bed and into the waiting room to free my bed for another patient. I was just waiting for discharge papers. When the Dr came to check on me and see if I should really be discharged, he decided that due to my level of pain, I really should not be going anywhere. He had me put back into a bed and went to order the ct scan. It was then time for change of shifts...great. The ct scan was ordered around 7pm and I finally had it around 1030.Then had to wait for someone in Australia to read the results and get back to the Dr in Maine. I was so ready to leave hors before this, but really couldn't due to the pain. I got home around 1230 this morning. All I learned was that I had a sore neck. It took this hospital 9 hours to diagnose me with what I knew was wrong. I was treated very good. I just cannot understand why if the ER is that busy the staff cant finish with 1 patient and get the discharge done so they have the extra room. Why put a patient that is in pain and clearly not feeling better in the waiting room only to have them put back into a room for further treatment. This isn't the first time I have had issues with the wait time here
