My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Illinois
I went to the E.R. with my 2 month old son in Feb 2007 because of signs of a cold as a new mother I just wanted to make sure he was not getting sick. (I was told to keep an eye for R.S.V. for babies born in the winter months)
So When I arrived at the Hospital in my own car after checking my baby a nurse told me he was fine that all his vitals were good.
then comes in this nurse saying that we need to send him to another hospital because the hospital I was at the nursery was under construction. So I said if he is in need of further evaluation I would drive him over to the hospital in the next town. The nurse refused to release him to me of course I was concerned and we had a major argument and said I would take him I'm not going to risk my sons health. one nurse told me all his vitals are fine and your the only one who says he needs further help. SHE CALLED THE AMBULANCE AND SINCE I HAD MY CAR I HAD MY HUSBAND DRIVE IN THE AMBULANCE WITH MY 2 MONTH OLD SON. I WAS NOT GOING TO LET MY CHILD GO ALONE.
MY INSURANCE PAID 500.00 AND NOW THE AMBULANCE COMPANY IS CHARGING ME FOR MY HUSBAND RIDING IN THE AMBULANCE.
CAN THAT BE DONE?
