When Diane King awoke from her sleep at the Alabama State Medical Clinic after 7 p.m. on Nov. 10, it was quiet.

Too quiet.

“Good afternoon?” – she shouted. There was no answer.

Having circled the sterile halls, it entered: she, the patient, was the only one in the building.

King recorded her terrible walk through the village American Family Care clinic on Facebook, which has more than 80,000 views as of November 14. She came for treatment because she fell ill and fell asleep in the patient room. King arrived there around 4 p.m. and was driven back around 6 p.m., she said in her video. After the staff took a few swabs, she fell asleep while waiting and woke up around 7:55pm to an empty clinic.

“Literally everyone left,” King said in her video as she made her way to the administrator’s desk and down the hallways. Several lights were turned off in other patient rooms.

McClatchy News reached out to AFC Forestdale for comment on Nov. 14 and was awaiting a response. The the clinic closes at 6 p.maccording to the AFC Forestdale website.

“You know the problem is that I feel awful, probably the flu or strep is easily treatable, but what if it was something more like a heart problem and I was still dead when they came back in the morning (? ),” King said on her Facebook video.

Luckily, the door was open for King and she walked out into the parking lot, where her car was the only one in the lot, the video shows. After checking the door, she returns to the clinic to give the audience another look of surprise.

King, who is a nurse herself, called the company the next morning and told AL.com that the regional manager apologized for the incident.

“She said they are looking into it and taking it very seriously. … She apologized and said it wasn’t that American Family Care way“, she told the publication. “I know things get hectic, things get busy, but you can’t just forget an entire patient.”

Forestdale is about 10 miles northwest of Birmingham.
