DO NOT GO TO THIS ER!! GO TO WESLEY MEDICAL CENTER! I got to the ER at 11pm with chest pains. No one seemed to be concerned in any way, even though they have signs posted to let them know if you do. I stood in the hallway for 15 minutes before I was called back to what I guess is the triage. The girl who took my vitals was extremely rude, she didn't say one word to me the entire time while she got my vitals. What ever happened to bedside manner?? I don't even know her name because she wasn't wearing a name badge. Actually, there was not one persons badge that I could read because they didn't have one, or it was turned around. At that point I was shown to the waiting room where I waited SEVEN HOURS TO BE SEEN! In what world is it acceptable to have to wait 7 hours in the waiting room at the ER?? I kept being told, "I don't know what to tell you" when I asked how much longer it was going to be. There were even people being seen that got there after I did. No explanation as to why I was having to wait so long. I had to lose my cool for anything to be done and once I was finally seen all the nurse and doctor could tell me was, "yeah I know I'm sorry" when I asked why I had to wait for so long. After all of this they were not able to even tell me why I was in pain. I left the ER in the same amount of pain I showed up in at 9:30am. Ten and a half hours at the ER, and no answers.?! This is by far the worst hospital I've EVER been to and I will NEVER go back!

Worst hospital experience EVER!!! Beautiful, well-maintained facilities with most INCOMPETENT medical staff!
Strongly contemplated calling for an UBER at 3am to leave. If I had not been so violently ill I would have!!!

Saved one of my best friend's life when she was in a horrible car wreck back in February. They were awesome to her, her family, and her friends. Treated everyone amazing.

Forrest General hospital emergency room has started a new way of treating emergency room patients. Once you go into the back to get your vitals, they will then make an assessment whether you go into a regular exam room like you used to in the emergency room or either put you in the hall of the emergency room Along with All the other people who have “smaller illness matters”. You will not be placed in the traditional exam rooms with a stretcher. The room has an exam table only. They never had me sit on the exam table but asked me to stayed in the wheel chair. Once in the hall you will sit in “chairs that are bolted to the wall” across from the nurses station for you to sit in, They will then come get you for xrays ect. When finished you sit back in the chairs bolted to the wall. They ask me to leave my sock off and shoe off while I waited in the hall with a lot of other people sitting beside you. It was ask why they did not put you in an exam room and they said it was so that those that are not being admitted to the hospital or more serious can get a room. I would encourage everyone not to go to Forrest General Emergency room unless you are having a heart attack. if you have a “non hospitalized matter such as a sprained ankle Go to immediate care or somewhere like that because you will get the same care there but Forrest General will charge you just like a old fashion emergency room fees but they have turned it into a clinic inside of the emergency room. You will pay less money at immediate care. Now You may possibly get in and out faster at Forrest General emergency room than you used to but you will pay a lot more. You will probably more than likely not see a regular MD but will see a nurse practitioner. . They will charge you for seeing the nurse practitioner just like you would have seen a certified medical doctor. They told me to elevate my foot and ice it. They did not give me an aspirin or Tylenol or anything for my pain. I was not impressed.
