Excellence was seen here today. EVERYONE I encountered were extremely kind. Dr Flemming showed compassion and took my concerns seriously. Nurse Megan was very caring. They also had a great support staff of nursing students (Christine and another student nurse,
I'm sorry I can't remember her name) that will definitely be great nurses soon. I feel much better than I did when I arrived. Thanks to each of you.
[sarcasm] Way to go almost killing my little 11 month old cousin by not giving her proper tests. Absolutely flawless service, keep it up. [/sarcasm]
I want to warn anyone that may have the misfortune of being taken here without knowing the hospitals in this area.
I was having what I thought was a stroke and was unsure what was happening to me. My face, hands, and feet were losing feeling for no apparent reason and it became hard to breath. I called 911 unsure what to do as at the time I was driving alone in the middle of no where. I will not mention how terrible the EMT was as they are not affiliated with this hospital.
I was taken to this hospitals ER and was immediately disregarded. I disclosed to them immediately that I had a "condition" (that I will not disclose publicly) in order to help them diagnostically as I thought at the time that being truthful was beneficial to my health and well being. I did not want anyone to know of my condition other than them they seemed to understand. However, not long after, the doctor disclosed this condition to two of my coworkers and told me that my very traumatic reaction that I have never experienced before in my life was a panic attack and that I should simply "breathe" it away if it happens again. Turns out they just ignored the fact that I had a reaction due to low potassium and I am currently on medication to regulate that. But no, it must be that I have anxiety, right?
I truly regret ever calling 911 and being taken to this hospital. I should have simply pulled my car off on the side of the road and laid in a ditch and waited for whatever was happening to me to pass as I would have gotten the same amount of care in that ditch as I did in the hospital without the 1000+ medical bill. I also could have avoided the fact that they disclosed personal medical information to coworkers of mine without consulting me first and the discomfort of having to talk to them about it and ask them not to disclose it to others too.
I will never go here again. I took my 11 month old daughter here she had been running a 103 fever for 24 hours with no other symptoms. It was Sunday so I had to go to the hospital to take her to get checked because by Sunday it was 104. They gave her medicine to help bring the fever down. The doctor checked her ears and throat said everything looked fine. Said no flu no cold so then did a catheter which was so painful to watch to check for UTI that came back negative so he said just a virus keep giving her Tylenol and Motrin. Tuesday comes along still 103 fever I call my local doctor they said bring her in they swab her nose and mouth and results show she has type A & B flu. They couldn't understand why the ER dr didn't swab to check for that. So I will NEVER go here again.
Yesterday I had to go to this ER because I had a fever and severe pain in my surgical site. (The surgical department is fantastic!) I was told if I have a fever or pain after office hours to go to the ER. I went there and the person who checked me in literally rolled her eyes as I am explaining why I was here. Once they called me back the nurse that walked me back was very impatient and rude. Once in the room the service seemed too fast nobody was communicating with each other or with me. It seemed like they were stumbling over each other and they were all firing questions off to me at once. The tornado of nurses stepped out of the room and the doctor came in. (Let me tell you about My surgery. I had a polinidal cyst excision. My surgical wound has to be packed in order to heal properly. The packing hurts when it goes in and when it comes out!) The doctor asks what is going on and I tell him I am having serious pain at the site and a fever. He proceeds to untape the gauze and just yanks the packing out. Which sends me into a sobbing mess from the sheer amount of pain that caused. Then he says we need cultures and leaves. Then the nurse tornado comes back in and more questions get fired at me as a q-tip is jammed into my incision and I am getting yelled at about an IV. I am in loads of pain and trying to focus on a nurse in this tornado. Suddenly I have a nurse yelling at me saying why am I refusing treatment! When I honestly am trying to cooperate through my pain. I had enough and yelled back at her I wasn't refusing! And that she was being rude! Then she proceeds to yell at me more as she slams the tray to the other side of the bed. At that point I am in so much pain that I just sit there and sob while the nurse tornado finishes it destructo path. Once they are all out of my room I hear them talking about me and laughing right outside my door. My husband didn't have a clue what was going on and when they came back in again I6e tried to ask but they were just plain rude to him as well. Finally came back and gave me a painkiller and antibiotics and then repacked the woung and . sent me home.
