feedback about Forks Community Hospital
I worked as a Nurse here for 8 years. Small town feel with amazing staff to work with. I also have been a patient with my first pregnancy and had exceptional care.
I have worked in health care for 20 years I have never seen such a lack of compassion.
My brother in law had been fighting brain cancer it got worse very fast. He was getting some help from hospice the next day. That night he was in horrible pn and fell 6 times. He went to ED by ambulance. The ER doctor refused to admit him. He said the hospital is not a place for people that cant get better. He and staff then continued to harass her telling her she had to take him home. They did not care that he couldnt stand or even sit. They had no suggestions how she was supposed to get him up 10 steps. I was called drove 2 hrs through the snow the Dr yelled at me saying again that hospital was not for people that dont get better. I drug him out to my pickup carried him through snow to his house. That is the worst facility I have ever been around and I work in EMS and have been around many.
Great staff and friendly. Best care in a 60 mile radius
I just went in to the ER to be treated for alcohol withdrawals. The addmitting person laughed and said, "oh, that's across the street." I asked her if they saw people for this and she told me "well I can admit you if you want but..."
BUT WHAT? That was a very callous way to behave. It took a lot to go in there only to be disregarded like that. It would seem that they would be more sensitive to a person actively seeking help. I'll never go back if I don't have to.
Came in with excruciating ear pain, screaming, and waited for three hours only to be told that there was nothing wrong and I should take Advil. I was the only person in the waiting room the entire time, and I had a nurse come in and tell me to be quiet because I was yelling in pain too loudly.
When I asked for something to relieve the pain, the doctor laughed and said "we don't just HAND out narcotics." So I left in just as bad of pain, only to have my eardrum burst TWICE and now I have hearing loss in my left ear.
