I use to swear by this hospital years ago. It’s sad to see so many negative changes. I won’t go or bring my family to this hospital unless it is my ONLY choice. Not only has the service gone down but the billing is ridiculous! I imagine there are some nice helpful people that work there but unfortunately I have yet to see them.
Wonderful care. Dr. Macdonald is top notch as is all the staff.
The one star I gave is for the NURSES in the ER. As for the PA on duty, Natalie McKay, the hospital would be wise to send her packing. My husband has had a tooth bothering him the last few days, and it got so painful, we went to the ER around 10:30 pm. It was pretty slow in there, so it wasn't a long wait. He was pretty sure the tooth was infected, as he could feel it was swollen, and he told the PA on duty, Natalie McKay, what he thought. She glanced at it, and said no, it didn't look infected to her, and that they don't do any dental work there, and he would have to go see a dentist about it. She asked what he had done for the pain so far, and he told her he had taken Naproxen and had put an ice pack on it. Her reply was that all of that was wrong, ice was the wrong thing to do, and he should have taken Ibuprophen. She said she would put lidocaine on it, give him some pain meds, and he should take Tylenol and Ibuprophen, and get to a dentist. She said Bassett healthcare in Hamilton was an emergency dentist and he should go there. (They are NOT, they don't even pull teeth there.) Her bedside manner was horrible, and even the nurse on duty, (who was great, and very nice), questioned almost everything McKay said. According to the dentist, (who we saw the very next day), the tooth absolutely IS infected, and had she given him the antibiotics he asked for, my husband would have had a good 24 hours LESS, of having extreme pain. The dentist also said putting ice on it was the RIGHT thing to do. He could not believe the ineptness of McKay. We would have to be dying in order to go there again, and even then, there has to be someplace else to go. Anywhere would be better.
Wow all I can say is wow. August first go in there for lower back pain that is crippling. Pain shoots down my leg, and makes left foot numb. Follow up with my family doctor, MRI done and it turns out I have a torn disc that will require surgery. Yeah guess it wasn't a muschle strain as diagnoesed by a glorified nurse, meaning nurse practitioner.
Do yourself a favor, drive the extra miles to Syracuse or any major city and visit a proper hospital. If you have a dog that has diarrhea, then this is the right place, @ they treat people like animals. The standard of care by which medical professionals are guaged is absent here, it is down right inhuman. And today 3/17/19 went for having a heart palpitations, they want to talk about my back, liek I'm here for my heart. If it's ok I'm leaving,this PA gives me attitude, thanks Karen for your last name btw. So after I get done, with my paperwork to the NYS department of health I am sure the hospital will thank me. Also when a patient asks to take out the IV to leave AMA,let them go, don't run off and call the police. By you not allowing me to leave you have committed a crime call false imprisonment, look it up in the penal code.
Gave Birth here with both my girls Faith & Hope ! Had a great midwife Barbara ! Great Experience !!! Birthing rooms were wonderful !!! I also had surgery here when I miscarried and hemorrhaged, they are great at saving lives !
