The ER is terrible, other hospital services okay

My two emergency room visits left much to be desired. My first, I arrived with chest pains and known multiple health issues that would make that particularly scary. The doctor immediately decided it was anxiety, even as my bloodwork indicated something being very wrong. I was placed on one-to-one, like suicide watch, despite being no threat to myself. I mentioned my health issues, and she refused to explore whether they could be the cause. Next thing I know, someone from community mental health is in my room to interview me. I was sent home with no relief and a referral for therapy. My doctors, when I followed up, were horrified. I was told by more than one practice that if I think I can survive the drive, to go the hour north or south to a different hospital in an emergency. Well, two months later I am bleeding uncontrollably and my doctor orders me to the ER ASAP. Great. I get in right away and was treated terribly by my nurse. I could tell she was not listening while I spoke. Eye-rolling and tutting and all. While I sat there. Bleeding. After imaging and bloodwork showed that yes, I am bleeding and yes, my iron levels were real low now, the same nurse came in to tell me I was on my period "what did I expect?" (I was not, we discussed this, it's why I was there..), that her bloodwork is worse than mine so be grateful. I left, still bleeding out, with no instructions for follow-up care, but instructions from the doctor to come back if it continues. I said "It continues now, do I just turn around?" And the nurse said, "we still won't help you". So yeah, not going back if I can ever help it. I don't recommend it at all. Munsing and Mercy aren't that far, if you can make it. For imaging and other services, they are just fine. I haven't had any bad service outside of the emergency room.
