feedback about Citrus Memorial Hospital
Excellent care!!! Presented to ER with pain and was being examined in less than 10 minutes. Staff is very professional and determined to find the causes and put together an effective plan of treatment. Much Much better than the other hospital in the next town that only treats the first symptom then sends you out of the door without finding out the cause and no plan of treatment.
Everyone on staff at Citrus is top of their field from the ER staff to the amazing Doctors and the greatest nursing staff I've ever been involved with.
I will not hesitate to recommend Citrus Memorial to anyone that needs medical care.
Need Faster E.R. Times for good business... E.R. max 30 minutes...Quick care also 5 to 10 minutes... Should have never put the helicopter pad in that spot, should have put it on the side were Ambulances go or on roof with elevator or straight shot, similar design but better construction... Great hearted people that care, always treated me well...
Wait time to see an ER doctor was over 2 hours...at 10pm on a Thursday night. Should not have to wait that long when you come I to the facility in extreme lower right stomach pain. You should not go into the ER with a 10 out 10 pain and leave at the same level with a prescription for Aleve. Next time we will take the hour drive to Gainesville for proper medical care.
Citrus Memorial is part of a chain of hospitals. Although this a non-profit, no hospital survives unless it makes money. I've heard their Cardiac section of the hospital is fantastic. However, I personally found this hospital to be insurance centric, they even say so in their emergency room wall placards throughout. "It's the Law" signs are in every ER room stating that if your illness or injury is life threatening (critical) we are required by law to treat you, but if it's not, find somewhere else. (I'm paraphrasing here). Our example proves that.
My Uncle was sent to the ER in a serious state, not critical but serious for an admit overnight and possibly longer, per the Doctor who saw him and they were waiting for a room to be free, which seemed to take forever. After a couple of hours I left with his wallet (not good to leave a wallet with credit cards in a hospital) to go home to check on my Special Needs son who had been left alone with someone for a good part of the day. Two hours later I get a frantic call from him stating that the hospital registrar needed a copy of his insurance card and photo ID immediately and I had in his wallet. I questioned him on why he didn't have a room yet and he didn't know. So I immediately drove back to Inverness with ID and insurance card handed it to the registrar and what do you know....after 15 minutes he had a room! I guess they ran his credit card...(his insurance).
His stay was pretty good, except for one rude and nasty nurse on 4rth floor and 5 STARS to the Food and Nutrition Service for their EXCELLENT meals.
I’ve had quite a few visits at this hospital including ER visits for my children, welcoming my third child into the world, and returning to have labs done for him. Every visit has been fantastic! I have seen the ER get overcrowded with longer wait times late at night, but I do trust that everyone working there worked so hard to get all of us the help needed as soon as possible. I could go on and on about how absolutely AMAZING my experience at the women and baby center was. Great place!
