Am I misreading this article? It says that the woman "claims" (the author's word, not mine) that she waited five hours, but the hospital says records show that all rape victims over the past two weeks waited less than two hours.
Yes, I know -- two hours is still too long. But I think it's worth noting that the woman's story differs significantly from the hospital's account. Is the presumption here that the hospital isn't being forthcoming?
It actually says that the director of the SANE nurses is the one who reviewed the log.
It also says that one nurse covers all the hospitals in the county, but doesn't say how many hospitals that was.
She could have been at another facility, or, as someone else said,in court.
Honestly, I'm wondering if it just seemed like that many hours to her.
Or am I the only one who has ever had a patient say something like "I asked for that pain pill an hour ago..." and it's been 15 minutes.
I knew a SANE nurse who had been one of three in a county. That's a lot of your life tied up with being on call. On top of that, add the "fun" of having defense attorneys trying to make you look like a fool, a liar, or worse on the witness stand. Not what I want to do, myself.
