The EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT needs improvements as far a wait time in the E\R for my husband was in the E\R for 9 Hrs due limited staff and you could sense in the atmosphere,Once he got in a room in the ER the staff was great! the wait time is just awful,and if you have patients experiencing chest pain,SOB,and Profuse sweating that patient should be Priority not check them in place a arm band on him and ask him to wait in the waiting room and sits in there as long as he can until the pain increase and goes a communicates this to the nurse then he's taken back .This has to get better.
Once he was transported to the 10th floor the staff was terrific..were grateful....
Do not detox here if your a veteran and struggling. I hallucinated coming off of alcohol and said crazy shi* the police there were nice enough to play what I did not remember saying through the beds P.A. system the nurses normally use on a loop the next day. The nurse techs treated me like shi* because of what I said while delirious... The regular and head nurses and doctors are amazing.. that's the ONLY saving grace of this place. Do not come here unless its an absolute emergency.
I am a new veteran and has been out the military for a month now. I went to sign up for my benefits and see about getting a refill on my anxiety medication. They asked me countless questions insuating that i was insane. I had my medical records with me since i was a new patient but they didn’t want them. They wanted to make their own decision about my health. So i find my self locked in the hospital for 2 days not being able to leave because they misconstrued my words and didn’t want to listen to me. They told me this happens to everyone at least one time. And the other staff told me i would be surprised how often this happened. So beware of this hospital their not trying to help you or listen to why your actually there. While i was there it was man having a stroke in the waiting room and no one cared they rolled him to the door and left him. This placed is not designed to help you so stay away.
I came to the hospital emergency room about. 630 and now now it's 1255 and I still have not been seen by a triage nurse or doctor. How is their treatment fair to any veterans. The white veterans that checkin After me were seen right away while I am still waiting and the time is now 102am
This place is horrible. If you are a veteran and need EMERGENCY assistance go-to your local ER. VA. Will pay the bill. I went to my psychologist and was Committed to the psych. Ward. Because I stopped the depression meds that kept giving me suicidal thoughts. The ER technician took my back pack, and said it'll be here in the ER when family come to get it. My family came to get my stuff. Guess what happens next. That's right my bag is missing money and medicine. After being discharged today I went and filed a police report and the OIC said good luck this happens all the time
