"Don't be so foolish"? Oh my God, how heartless. And this was said by a nurse? I hope he/she was fired.

I find that is un called for big time , so we should able get treated equal like everyone else not just cause people are pregnant , so basically what they are saying we got no rights if we are pregnant , we shouldnt have to be a certain weeks to go to the case room think we should go striaght to the case room if your pregnant and got a problem they will do more for you then the ER ,

Some of these stories are shocking. To do the right thing all it takes is human concern and compassion ; Something which should be expected in the health care system. Even when policies are in place to assure this, they are rarely followed.....why?

In other provinces women who are expecting a normal pregnancy and birth, as soon as they recognise that they are pregnant have the opportunity to choose care from registered midwives. If a problem occurs the midwife consults with an obstetrician for advice. If there had been a registered midwife to support the mother when she was miscarrying she may not have felt so abandoned. The mother would have known the midwife who may have accompanied her to the hospital. The Emergency Room can be a very busy place where there is little time for the doctors and nurses and patients to get to know each other as people. Why do not women have the same opportunity for care in this province as do women in much of the rest of Canada? Ask your MHA and the Minister of Health and Community Services for the reason.

I feel for these women. I had a miscarriage in 2005 and wasn't at all impressed with the doctor on call that night. However, the obgyn on call was great. The regular doctor lacked compassion for us, who were anticipating being first time parents.

How do you blame the health care for this problem, its staff problem where the person on staff is there for the wages and could care less. These people are supposed to be trained and it wouldn't matter if there was 100 there if they were of the same mind and because of union protection there is nothing that can be done oh they cry for more staff and more wages neither of which will fix the problem.

This was my experience exactly. Compassionate care is not to be found in a busy ER.
