Last night I went into candler hospital and I actually had a great DR looking after me and nursing staff. I want to thank Nurse Ashley and DR. Ferrari for taking such good care of me and being so paiten with my children as well. I went in with one of the most awful headache's I have ever experienced in my life. They took the right steps to ensure everything was all right. So for that I want to that the night shift crew last night. Thank you so much.

I have seen countless patients come through the doors at Candler County Hospital as a nurse. I can attest to the fact that the staff MD's, nurses, techs, radiology, respiratory, pharmacy, etc, are ALL jam up! I can also attest that some of the ER docs were less than pleasant but I would hope that patients can realize that just because you "think" an emergent condition is present, doesn't necessarily mean that it is. I cannot tell you how many lives that have been saved at this small rural facility but they are MANY! A facility which at one point was operating with less than the basic supplies yet still..... they manage to pull it off and work together to take care of patients needs. I would simply ask the community to not allow the opinions of others to make up their minds, and to give this facility a try for themselves. No, it isn't the most fancy or technologically advanced facility on earth, and it certainly isn't the newest, however the care that you will receive is in my opinion, just as good as the care you would get anywhere else. If not better! You are a name here..... not a room number or a bed to flip. As far as ER wait times are concerned, just because you have a horrible headache (as long as your neuro status is intact), doesn't mean you deserve to be seen before someone with something like chest pain or a hemorrhagic stroke for example. If you are in the waiting room then, 9/10 times, there is someone else who is sicker than you are in the exam room that you are waiting on! There is a triage system in place for a reason. Also, the majority of times, you are actually waiting on the doctor to get out of bed or for lab/test results to come back. You have to have all of the info before definitive treatment and a diagnosis can be performed/made. If you are well enough to wait for "hours" yet still well enough to drive yourself to another facility and wait there..... then you probably didn't really need an emergency room to begin with. You need a primary care physician or urgent care. ER's are for the treatment and diagnosis of emergent conditions (life or death).... not sprained wrists, stubbed toes, bumps or boo-boo's, pregnancy scares, or check ups. And when you do go to an ER with something that is NOT acute or emergent then yes...... expect to wait a while so that others in more need can be seen and treated first. This is known as TRIAGE. Also, if a provider (nurse or doctor) comes to the waiting room and asks why you're there, they are probably just doing a visual triage to monitor the status of the patients that are waiting to be seen. There are protocols, systems, and guidelines that must be followed. Side note - I am not currently employed at this facility, but I was, and I stand by them 100%!
