feedback about Chippewa County War Memorial Hospital
They used to be a good emergency place to go. Now the ER has really gone down hill. I came there with a wound that required 18 stitches. I have lymphodema in my legs. This requires special handling whenever I get a wound on the leg. The nurse practitioner who stitched me up said that I didn't need wound care or antibiotics. I told her that I did, as they gave them to me a year earlier with a much smaller wound on the same leg. I went to a total of three nurse practitioners, at the ER and walk in center, before one of them would finally agree to refer me to wound care and give me the antibiotics. My wound care doctor said that that was terrible that I had to do that to get care. The nurse that stitched me up also said that I would probably lose a big flap of skin. But she wouldn't give me the things that I needed most to ensure that that wouldn't happen! Not only could that have happened, I could have also lost my leg!
i was also there for another reason about two months later, and they didn't handle that too well either.
I am not impressed.
Update: Don't bother to use the parking service. I used it today for the first time in years and was told that they will no longer park my car because of the "smell", My car does not smell. It was just recently cleaned by Reno;s Car Care, I wish I could go somewhere else but because of a lack of drivers I am forced to keep going here.
Communicating is horrible. And the billing department is full of idiots they recently changed they system the hospital uses and none of them understand how to use it.
1 nurse practitioner and 2 nurses are the only thing good about that hospital. The others miss treat you and your family as well as think everyone is out to seek drugs . If u clearly see someone is in pain and u do any kinda test to confirm what they are talking about then u try your best to treat the issue not send them home. My daughter passed out twice no work up done what so ever they gave her 2 juices and sent her home. This hospital needs new staff that actually care about there job and not just a paycheck
Dr. Kevin Smith was considerate and answered all my questions explaining things in a way I could understand. Excellent orthopedist.
I recently experienced surgery by Dr. Amo and an overnight stay at the hospital. My care was excellent - from arrival to discharge. Very professional, positive attitudes, helpful and proper staffing levels. But most important, Dr. Amo was excellent.
