My Daughter in law recently had my grand daughter at this hospital. The night shift nurses were too busy on their phones to even give her a pain pill for her C section and when she would try to call a nurse and ask for something they replied with “do it yourself!” Really?? This is a hospital!! Not Junior high!!! Very unprofessional and when I was in the ER I was deathly sick and treated like a piece of trash told nothing was wrong and had to drive 2 hours to find out what really was wrong!! The nurse told me I couldn’t stand up and bend over which was the only way I could be and ease some of the pain away! She constantly yelled at me! Come to find out I was passing 2 kidney stones, had a kidney infection and gallstones! But according to this facility nothing was wrong! Nice work 🙄
I completely understand that ALL patients receive the necessary treatment provided by the emergency room staff. I also understand the “first come, first serve” treatment and that we should “wait our turn”. I’m concerned with the level of treatment that a patient should be processed through. I feel a patient that has “foreign object” lodged in there eyeball (possibly causing permanent eye damage) should be a higher priority than a person with the typical symptoms of a cold. Common sense should play a role when it pertains to providing a higher priority level of care a patient is required rather than a system of first come, first served. The answer lies between either providing multiple doctors, each focused on specified areas of medical needs or continue the trend of providing 1 doctor on duty at a time. Seems as though a emergency room staffing multiple doctors would be the logical choice, but again...it’s Camden Clark Memorial Hospital!
Depending on the care you need, the quality is hit or miss. I'm in good enough health to not warrant coming here, but I have relatives who are in poorer health who have come here. As for me, I needed a surgery over twenty years ago when I was five. The anesthesia they gave me caused an allergic reaction. I last came three years ago after I was hit by a car. The physical I received lasted about a half-hour and the staff were friendly but they did not charge my insurance for the physical nor the ambulance ride and actually sent a bill to my mother for another patient in my name for an accident weeks before mine. As for relatives I visited my father yesterday and was told he'd be out today. I visited again today to learn his doctor ordered an X-ray for him before he even woke up. I stayed for three hours waiting for the same doctor but all I got was nurses. The guy sharing his room had been told he would be out as well today. So overall, this place could do better.
Still laying here being told gall bladder is bad but cant remove it while im admitted i have to seek an outside surgeon. This place is a joke. Was admitted lastnight per the er requiring a test that the doctor would do today. Didnt see the doctor that i was supposed to see saw his assistant.
This is the worst damn hospital I have ever witnessed. Any hospital you go to is concerned most about the patients comfort and well being. Not this place. Try to find the doctor to have pain meds ordered for my wife and the guy is no where to be found. And while she is laying in agony a nurse comes in to take blood and seemed irritated that she could not come out of the fetal position. She was rude the whole time. And come to find out they had already taken blood and wasn’t told. I would not recommend anyone step foot in this hell hole.
