Today, I went to the ER for an asthma attack. I left with a UTI and an elevated heart rate. FML
ryuuchild tells us more :
OP here. So I went in cause of the asthma attack and due to the treatments they gave me my heart rate was up to 130 to 150 and would not go down. The Doctor ordered an EKG and a blood and urine test to see if it showed anything. All that cameback w as that I had a UTI. I hadnt even started showing signs of a UTI so go figure right. Feeling much better and my heart rate was down this morning. Thanks for all the laughs made my day.

While you certainly can get sick at a hospital, getting a uti there strikes me as improbable. She probably had it before she went, and was diagnosed there.

A lot of ER docs like to check a urine sample while you're there for various reasons. It was probably an accidental finding that they decided to treat.

Also, the elevated heart rate was most likely from the albuterol to treat the asthma attack.

Meds for asthma:

Side effects may include infection of the urinary tract and elevated heart rate. WARNING: do not use with asthma as your heart and/or bladder may explode

you didn't go to Stoughton Hospital did you?

I hope that means you got a UTI diagnosis and not that the hospital gave you a UTI. Sorry OP, that sucks. But remember there are still far worse ways to leave an ER.
