Do you know the definition of G.O.M.E.R.? Or what it means to be labeled a drug seeker?
G.O.M.E.R. is medical speak in emergency rooms for Get Out of My Emergency Room, used when the doctor doesn't like you. Being labeled a drug seeker means the doctor doesn't like you and will send you to a pain clinic which is medical speak for 'you are not getting any medical pharmies.'
I suspect that my being from California and having long hair and brown skin had to be the reason I was labeled a drug seeker.
I drove myself to the emergency room six times, and each time I was treated like a G.O.M.E.R. The pain, oh the pain!
The seventh time, I told my wife I couldn't drive to the emergency room so she called the ambulance. The ambulance EMT declared that I was having a heart attack and probably saved my life. The emergency room would have surely just sent me home again.
I spent 15 days at Sacred Heart Hospital after a quadruple bypass. I will release my medical records if I could get justice.
Doctors in Coos Bay and North Bend play a deadly game on their patients.
You are going to see many poor people labeled drug seekers. I think the Justice Department needs to investigate this matter.
