Literally the worse experience of my life. I have anxiety and was told the only way that i could be prescribed medication was to do an over night. i agreed because i needed the help. Everything went down here from there. i waited 36 hours to see a doctor when i was told id see a doctor as soon as i got admitted. Within that time a nurse tried to take my blood when i asked her why she said a doctor ordered it but i had not seen a doctor so a refused. when i refused she began to threaten me. also when i asked to call home a different nurse yelled at me on top of a strange man wondering in my room. they also didn't respect my dietary restriction and i wasn't able to drink anything including water for my entire stay. all of which made my anxiety even worse. i should have drove the extra time to Tuscaloosa or Starkville
went to this ER due to having the flu. I was left in the waiting room for 7 HOURS! After going to the desk numerous times to question my wait hour after hour, at the 7TH hour I was told oh we called your name. I said did you call my name on the loud speaker? OH NO she said we can't call your name on the loud speaker due to HIPPA ya da de ya... I said you do realize how large your waiting room is and the fact that I'm trying to keep from contaminating everyone in this room I've been in the area where the vending machines are located IN YOUR WAITING ROOM... it's not possible to hear your "voice" calling my name without the use of the speaker over my head. OK so finally I was called back, treated for the flu, and tested positive for the flu. This is a very uncomfortable feeling that goes with the flu to have to wait 7 hours in a lobby and then be overlooked by your staff! I do admit the doctor was extremely nice but that's all i have to say about this place.
My husband went to Allegro plaza Wednesday finding out he had the flu then ended up having to go to Columbus ER Friday saying he doesn't have the flu it's West Nile then going back Saturday saying it's not the flu or West Nile it's his gallbladder..... Both times we went he was very dehydrated they also said that they could not do anything for him that we couldn't do at home and that he was perfectly healthy... Friday when we went to the ER my husband was so bad that he couldn't even tell his social security number date of birth... We finally got a awnser after taking him to a different hospital so we went to West Point Ms they put him in the hospital right away and told us he had Double Pneumonia....
Something about this simple saying makes me feel comfortable . Nurses are very informative.
Terrible experience. In ER waiting room coffee pot dripping in the floor , a nurse walked over to it, cursed it, and kicked a garbage can over the puddle of coffee in the floor. When taken back to ER, there was a strong sting of sewage in the air. When we asked what that was, the young lady taking us back told us they couldn't figure it out and laughed. The first doctor and nurse to attend to me were great. However, after shift change and a new doctor, it changed. He walked in my room handed my daughter a stack of papers and said read this when you can. He couldn't diagnose me until my daughter whom is a nurse did... my doctor from UAB requested an MRI which the ER doctor said they don't do them after 4:30. He was rude and heartless. I have a serious condition and if was properly seen about would have been hospitalized. This hospital has some serious issues which in my opinion puts people's lives in danger.
