feedback about Carteret General Hospital
The surgical.staff, nurses, and assistant's we're pretty good. Especially the nurses Kelly D and Liz were terrific. However, the cafeteria staff were rude. I went down at 10:10 am to get some food. They had been cooking cheesburcheesand told me they weren't serving until 11:00 am. So they went back to talking. Basically, they serve old food, with attitude.
I was in the hospital 4 days before the hurricane, I had a cyst on my ovary that Blood in my belly. . I just want to say thank you all for saving my life .. my family and I Thank you all so much.. thank you Carteret Hospital and OBGYN ...
I wish it was possible to give the ER ZERO STARS! I injured my knee in a fall and went to the ER with every symptom of a pulled ligament. The person who said he is a doctor was not, he was a fake mini doctor...aka PA. I was taken to x-ray, given an ace wrap and crutches. I followed up with an orthopedic doctor who did LESS than the ER! Two weeks after the injury, my knee was still swollen, hot to touch, very painful, and I was unable to bear weight on it. My Primary Care Doctor to me to go to the ER to have fluid drained and tested for sepsis. In the ER, PA #1 told me there was minimal swelling and no temperature change. The RN noted both swelling and temperature change. Fake doctor PA #2 Megan Carney is beyond rude. Her attitude was horrible! She told me she is NOT going to drain fluid from my knee because it is a sprain and it isn't going to heal by "running to the ER all the time". I explained that my family doctor sent me to the ER and a diagnosis of the injury is required in order to treat an injury. She rolled her eyes and walked out. (I was a nurse in orthopedic surgery for 10+ years). PA#2 ordered another x-ray... because repeating test for no reason is cost effective...she gave me a "knee immobilizer" that went from my hip to my ankle and 800 mg Ibuprofen.
Now, a week later, I am more sick than I have ever been in my life. I haven't eaten or been out of bed in 3 days. Chills, fever, blackouts, trembling, the worst headache I've ever had. All symptoms of septicemia!
If you value your life, DO NOT go to Carteret ER!!!
This hospital has the potential to be a really good hospital. The staff is hit or miss but the ones that are good and care can't be beat. They need to spend some money on upgrades and employees. That would be a great start on improvement.
The ER staff were very professional & competent during our visit yesterday. I was especially impressed with the advance online scheduling option. Within 5 minutes of submitting our request a nurse called to confirm it & to tell us to come sooner because of the situation. We would gladly return for any future mishaps.
