feedback about Carteret General Hospital
I LOVE the hospital and staff!! The labor and delivery along with post partum unit have treated us so wonderful! We have had a few little bumps in the road to go home and I feel like we have had 1st class care. Every nurse, aid, doctors have been more than friendly and helpful to our family! Going the extra mile doesn't even start to cover it!! We are so blessed to have this hospital serve our community!
I only have the best things to say about Carteret Health Care. Over the years they have provided excellent service to our family. Our son was born there, they have helped with emergencies over the years, and they have provided care for many of our elderly family members. Wonderful staff and great service.
I have seen people sit and sit for hours in the emergency room.Not really sure if it was necessary.
But I can say ,the people at the front desk are very sweet.
I don’t know why people say such bad things about this place. They’ve saved my life twice and staff is always nice. Just had surgery and they even called to check on me. Very clean and love that they have a Starbucks.
After experiencing a loud popping noise in my left hip and being in severe pain I had my son take me to CGH emergency room. I was checked in and waited my turn. I disclosed that I had no insurance but that I qualified for Charity Care. Eventually x-rays, blood and urinalysis were done, and I was brought into a room to await the results. The pain was so intense that I could not sit up straight and I was crying because of the level of discomfort. The only thing that kept me from passing out from the pain was leaning on my left side.
The emergency room nurse was just as nasty as could be. I felt like I was being judged as someone who was there to obtain narcotics, which put me in a very bad mood since my system is clean. The next person who came to see me I believe was a nurse practitioner. She asked a couple questions and stared at me while I was crying in pain, which made matters worse. I was then given a muscle relaxer which did next to nothing to ease the pain. Finally, a man came in and introduced himself as a doctor, and he seemed very nice. After speaking with me briefly he held out his hand for me to shake. As I lifted my arm a very sharp pain shot down my left side, and I was doubled over again. He told me he thought I had torn ligaments, gave me a prescription for Percocet and I was discharged. The nurse took and hour to finally come with a wheelchair to remove me from the hospital and give me my prescription. Her demeanor was insulting to the point where I refused any more help from her. I hobbled out of the hospital, commenting to anyone who came through the door not to come here unless they absolutely had to.
This was 3 years ago, and I should have written this review before now. No matter how much time passes I cannot forget how badly I was treated. To this day the pain in my hip still exists. I am unable to sleep on my right side and have trouble walking. At times I get muscle spasms in my legs which are so intense my toes curl uncontrollably, and I must pry them open to straighten them out. My current medical provider suggested I take Aleve for the pain, which I take 6 times per day, every day. Finally, the Charity Care option was never resolved, and I am being hounded by creditors.
Conclusion: The quality of care you receive may be determined on your ability to pay and your appearance.
