feedback about Alleghany County Memorial Hospital
The worst hospital I have ever been in. The doctors don't know what they are doing. They often times will be lazy and refuse to do proper treatments and just send you home. I feel like it is a money machine for them. Even the doctors outside of this area complain about AMH and how incompetent they are.
Came in with nonstop chest spasms. Informed them I had Lyme disease. They were knowledgeable and did extensive tests to rule out heart issues and other organ issues from Lyme. They listened and took time to explain blood results. Dr. Calhoun and all the nurses, radiology and lab techs were very caring and supportive. My gallbladder may be malfunctioning so further testing recommended.
Experience was not good at all. Wouldn’t recommend coming here...
ER staff will call the police to have you arrested if you ask for help dealing with policy issues. Brought my husband here, with our three children, while on vacation when he got very sick. They have a policy of not allowing more than 1 person in the ER rooms, which was fine. I asked the nurse at the front desk what I should do and she said she didn't know, but that I couldn't stay with my husband. Eventually, a janitor pointed out that there was a waiting room down the hall. I asked for a customer service email or phone number, because I thought the nurse was rude for not mentioning the waiting room. She made a joke about not being responsible for customer illiteracy then called the police to have me arrested. Horrible, evil people who represent the very worst of civilisation, and provide medical care that is on par with the customer service. If you're a patient, visit only if you want to be left to be left to die while your loved ones are imprisoned for daring to suggest that the nurses should pretend to be human.
Terrible experience with ER staff. Treated me like a drug addict. Anyone receiving care at AMH should request a copy of your record. Mine was full of errors. I am writing a letter of complaint, but next time, I’ll travel to Elkin for emergency care if possible.
