My grandmother is here and they are taking real good care of her
Clean, efficient, guick response ER, nice staff
I'm going to combine a couple Emergency Room experiences into one here. Last year I was admitted for a pulmonary embolism (blood clot in lung). This took approximately 6 hours to diagnose. 6 hours in which every shallow breath I managed to take was excruciating. Still, in my 30s and fairly fit; I truly feel sorry for others in more dire conditions relying on this facility for urgent care. I also was treated to an inane diatribe how one nurse was in desperate need for Taco Bell. I probably would have liked some Taco Bell myself if I hadn't thought I might be dying. Fast forward to tonight while my nephew is admitted after suffering a seizure at work. A nurse caught lurking in the doorway was asked if she was to be his nurse for the evening, and she replied no. What was her purpose there besides rubbernecking at someone's misfortune? The level of rudeness and incompetence in this emergency room is appalling. During this stay, my other nephew was asked to vacate an already completely empty waiting room, in case other patients may need the space...to my understanding a waiting room is just that - a waiting room, and clearly no one else was in pressing need of the space. He was ultimately bullied into leaving. Ugh, I wanted to give zero stars but I must give at least one to even post this message. Done. I have elderly parents in this town, and the thought that either one of them might end up in this ER for any reason scares the life out of me.
The nursing staff was more worried about the paperwork then the patient
