feedback about Bolivar General Hospital
Bolivar General Hospital is a decent hospital with decent doctor's for the most part. The nurses are awesome!! Most of the Doctor's are awesome too. They have always treated me with respect and dignity except for one doctor. On several occasions they have taken me they to get me stable enough just so I could make it to another hospital and if it wasn't for Bolivar General Hospital I just might not be here today. So, they have my respect. Thank you.
This isn't something I normally do but my experience this morning at this hospital was so bad I'm still trying to calm myself down. First of all. Humiliated is the main thing. I am not going to pay this bill because I had NOTHING done
I checked in at 636 am ten minutes waiting in the waiting room an emergency came through with about 30 family members. I understood and remained patient. About an hour an a half later a young nurse came and got me and took me to room #5. Ten min after that the X-ray Technician came in and took exrays ofy right ankle. I had an accident Wednesday evening and drove a drill bit into and around the ankle bone. Haven't been able to walk in sleep so I decided since Bolivar was close to my home I would go there. I just moved to the area and don't know my way around yet.
Around 945 Dr. Patterson came in looked at my ankle didn't mention my x Ray's which had been done over an hour didn't say anything really except it needed to be dressed. I told him I couldn't walk on it and when asked I said I didn't need a tetnus shot because I had one in 2011. I was freezing cold. Didn't see anyone else for over an hour... My legs were turning purple it was so cold which was making my ankle hurt worse so I wrapped the sheet that was on the bed around me. The janitor even stopped and offered me a blanket at this time I was upset... I rang the nurses bell and had a very rude nurse come in I asked when Dr. Patterson would be coming yo see me and she in a very loud voice for everyone to hear said they had two emergencies which j was aware of and again remained patient and said he would get to me when he could. I was disgusted I told her I had been patient. I was cold and my foot was throbbing she said ugh hold on and I hear her telling the Dr I wanted to leave which I didn't even say that. She comes back with my prescription and a tetnus shot and I told her I had already told the Dr I didn't need one since mine was arioo active and said I'm free to leave. I said I cannot walk I told the Dr that and I said I need crutches. She grabs those and I leave. I had no discharge papers... I never got my ankle probably dressed.. I never knew the results of my x-rays. I was humiliated and embarrassed as I was leaving to the point I was in tears. I am not paying this bill because NOTHING WAS DONE. I cannot wait for the bill to come in and I cannot wait to talk to the person in charge of this terrible hospital .They should be ashamed...
Took too long and didn't even help pain
My niece was there March 9th around 830pm. And the bedside manner was horrific. I told her she would be OK to go because they were a decent hospital. And then she gets treated like $#!/! Sorry baby girl for your bad experience. Very disappointed.
Just here inn the er... great nurses!! Very carrying and kind!!
