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!!!

My mother suffered a major stroke on 17 June and received the best care shes ever had from the CCU nurses, Dr's Green and Patel as well as the nurses on the 2nd Medical wing. They treated her with the type of compassion and love you would normally find in a family environment not a hospital. She was eventually moved from the CCU to "Comfort Care" which is hospice level care. We were never mislead on the outcome and she passed away a little over 5 days later. I've lived here for over forty years and remember the days I wouldn't take a pet to Carteret General let alone be treated there. Today however is very different. They've come a long way!!!

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.

I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA, and was in Emerald Isle for my brothers wedding over the past weekend. We have some of the very best hospital and medical facilities in the U.S. in Philadelphia, New York, and Baltimore area so I was extremely disappointed when I had to visit this facility. I had a severe reaction to some poison ivy exposure...I broke out in huge blisters all over my arms and legs, my calves and feet were blown up twice their normal size due to swelling, terrible, terrible discomfort and itching. Went to this hospital hoping for some relief. I have had bad allergic reactions in the past and was always given a strong steroid shot, and figured this would be no different. The "Genius" Physician's Assistant, Barbara something-or-other, whom I saw, was not only condescending, but quite frankly insulted my intelligence. She was able to deduct that I was having some sort of dermatitis reaction as a result of coming in contact with something poisonous. First thought, was, "wow." What was the 1st clue that gave that away? The massive blisters all over me? The bleeding from the scratching? The swelling? Unreal. Then, I waited literally an hour for them to print my prescription for Prednisone and Benadryl...yes, over the counter Benadryl. Still had to drive a 1/2 hour back to pharmacy to get the medicine, which I am on for 3 days now and still no relief. Luckily, i arrived back into Philadelphia late last night and will be going to a medical facility here....one that can actually help. Like I told them as I was leaving that worthless place, thanks for nothing.
