I was in a horrible car wreck last year. Honestly, if it weren't for this hospital, I'm sure I wouldn't have made it through. I lost all of my blood, and was in critical condition. I've also had tremendous support after I had my last surgery at the beginning of this year. The only thing I found wrong with this hospital is the moment when they kicked me out of the hospital 2 weeks after I had my accident when they were supposed to put me in an inpatient rehab. I understand my reason for not having insurance at the time, because for some absurd reason, health insurance is a requirement for almost everything. At the same time, they didn't even try to help me get on Medicaid/SSI or anything like that, claiming I had to be pregnant to qualify for Medicaid (which I know is bologna). Other than that, this seems like a hospital full of professionals who knows how to do their job. I wish every hospital was the same way.

This is the 4th time since November 29, 2017 I have been at Forrest General as a patient. I have spent over 6 weeks in this hospital. For the most part I can only say good things about the doctors, nurses, techs, etc. However, there are a few nurses that leave a lot to be desired. They have horrible attitudes, they get angry if you ask them for anything and don't dare ask then for something for pain because they are going to let you know right away that they think you are a drug addict for even asking. My vascular surgeon had to get onto one of the nurses when I was here in January because he saw her response to me asking for pain meds. I had a bypass that time, in November I had two fasciotomies and this time I have had a leg amputation. So it's not like I came in for a hang nail and begging for drugs. Overall though, the doctors are courteous, most of the nurses are compassionate and the rest pf the crew is capable.

This is one of the worst emergency rooms in the United states. 2 different nurses lied to us, stating that our room was being cleaned when in fact they didn't have a room available. Why lie? I hate that this is the only place close by to receive emergency care.

This is a Hell Hole I was in the Hospital for a few days and the E R was very good i went in by a ambulance they were very efficient, then I was admitted it was very nice and I was treated well for a day or so then it all changed. My case was given to a dr jabber he is one of the rudest dr i have ever had the displeasure of ever dealing with run away as fast as you can

I had the unfortunate pleasure of being seen by NP Blackledge. She can in the room with and attitude and continued the have one. She prescribed me medication without properly examining me. This has by far been the worst er visit I have experienced
