feedback about Harrison Memorial Hospital
I slipped and busted the back of my head open on a concrete step. I was headed to the hospital in my town during a storm and multiple down trees kept me from going any direction, so this hospital was my last resort. I came in on the evening shift and everyone was really nice and funny and tried to cheer me up. It took about 2 hours but rightfully so after a CT scan and some staples. Really glad they were so awesome and made me laugh cause I’m terrified of hospitals. Thank you for your help.
The morning of June 29, 2019 my 97+ year old Mother was taken by ambulance and admitted to Harrison Memorial Hospital with respiratory distress. The ER staff went to work on her immediately and began all the tests to determine her problem. They explained each test in detail as it was being performed. Dr. Sadek, the ER doctor, was extremely informative as he discussed with us what was happening.
Mom was admitted and a little upset that she would not get to see the fireworks during the Fabulous Fourth Celebration that night. She had talked about that event for days and we were hopeful somehow a way would be provided. I don't have the names of the two 2nd floor nurses that made that happen, but they took it upon themselves along with my daughter and started moving furniture, medical equipment, etc. and moved the bed and positioned it at the window in just the right angle so she could view them. You certainly don't have that in a big city hospital. These ladies went above and beyond their nursing duties to make sure she got her wish.
Until she passed on July 3 she was given the best of constant care with the utmost respect by each and every shift. From housekeeping to each one on duty that cared for her in her final days.
Also, Dr. Calder...I have absolutely no words to describe the care and compassion he not only gave Mom, but to our family. He walked us through each and every detail of her treatment, and encouraged us to ask questions. The world needs more doctors like him. His bedside manner made us feel like our loved one was his only patient...not just a name on his chart.
I could probably go on and on about the level of outstanding care that not only she received, but her family and visitors as well.
Sheila Currans, I hope you and the board are aware of the angels you have under your direction! They are remarkable. God Bless you all.
See, it's complicated, the food is good, and MOST, of the nurses are nice, but there are two nurses here that need to take a customer service class, I wish I knew their names so I could call them out, the first night we were here they felt the need to have the meanest nurse possible give my woman a cervix check, this nurse shoves her gorilla fingers in and hurts my woman so bad, like, okay, their not gonna be comfortable, I get that, but thats not the bad part, she got mad at my woman, a pregnant woman mind you, because she was crying and in pain, and told her "corporate or ill call your doctor and she'll make you go home" and stays rude the whole time, getting uoset when we ask for a change of sheets or anything like THATS YOUR JOB, then, just now, 10 minutes before I wrote this, a nurse comes in that again like the other, just has a bad attitude, my woman asks if its normal for her to hurt after she eats, and she said "maybe you're stretching muscles you didn't know you had" so I said "maybe when her stomach gets full it puts pressure on that area that hurts" so she looks at me, and says "well food goes to your stomach not your ribs so" with just the snobbiest attitude, like, all we tried to do was ask a question and she got an attitude, with someone who just had a baby only a day before, a new mom that just wanted to know if what was happening was normal, so yes, the place is great, but to those two nurses, you should be required to take classes on how to treat people, its not the worlds fault that you hate your life, don't take it out on defenseless pregnant women in pain.
Ps. Brittany, heather, and Melanie are just wonderful people, so supportive and gave so much helpful advice.
Outstanding, kind, intelligent people---from the nurses to the doctors and support staff--truly outstanding service--thank you HMH
Never had any over night stays, but have been several times for tests and physical therapy. I was away treated excellent. Everyone was always very nice and helpful. Very knowledgeable and pretty nurses, that always helps you feel better. Over all, for a small hospital in a small town, I think it's a excellent hospital.
