feedback about Brattleboro Memorial Hospital
I have had several health emergencies and four major surgeries at this hospital and I think it is a deeply caring and professional institution. Our community is fortunate indeed. I hit the nurse's bell and help is at my bedside in one minute or less. The doctors are experienced and always take the time to answer questions and help me make sound decisions about my health. The rooms and public areas are comfortable and cheerful. The emergency room is responsive and thoughtful, even on busy holiday weekends. And hey, the food is very very good. I have been a patient at a couple of major big city medical institutions where the almighty personnel were impersonal and the public areas were grubby. I prefer to get my health care here at BMH.
Their antiquated policies on visitation are absolute bull@&)). There should be no reason that a spouse cannot stay by the side of their loved one while recovering from a surgery many, in fact all hospitals I've been around in the past few years have no problem with letting your spouse stay with during the recovery process after surgery, with the exception of this nazi run facility if your looking for top flight companionate care and the feeling of being treated like an adult don't go here stay away from this place as much as you can the emergency services are a joke the nursing staff is terrible and the hospital policies are ridiculous
THE WORST ER IN HISTORY!!!!!!
The service at this hospital are really fantastic, ie: Physical Therapy, other specialists...etc.
BUT if you need immediate care ... GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!
I was brought to the ER with a head injury. The wound on my forehead was glued back together, but other than that and a pair of tylenol I reveived no treatment. I waited patiently for imaging and neurological examination, but was instead informed that I was being discharged because they "needed the bed". I was discharged against my will, over my strong objections, and essentially evicted from the ER in the middle of the night with a concussion into medically unsafe curcumstances of which the staff were fully aware. The nursing staff were verbally abusive bullies who attemped as a group to intimidate me into signing discharge papers. When i explained I had no transportation and was staying by myself in a motel and would be alone overnight if I went there, their response was I could "sit in the waiting room."
Its very clean and the dr and nurses are very polite and understanding
