Saving Huggins Hospital Patients Money on All Things Healthcare
feedback about Huggins Hospital
In my own stupidity I performed an act that resulted in the need for stitches. The staff was great, friendly, and polite. I was taken care of promptly as it was slow that morning. I feel that some of the reviews are unfair as some people do not understand healthcare and staffing levels, no one wants to wait but some times it is inevitable. I had no complaints about this facility. Thanks guys.
I can't believe how they build a new hospital and yet the service goes down hill even more.
I lived in the area for over forty year's, and the hospital goes from bad to worse.... I've had to go in the ER for things from time to time, I'm amazed at how many times doctors take forever to come to the room. Nurses are nice most times, but when you come across ones how act like they have far better things to do... Well it doesn't leave you with a warm feeling.
And if you want a doctor, you go through or to Huggins for Service's.
My wife and troubled son have to stay in a jail room because they don't even want him there, and my wife has to be there because he's a minor.
How sad a place with so much to offer, still does nothing for the residents of the area. They have a lot of vacant Space's in the older section, what a waste of space.
I have heard horror stories about employees that get canned for nothing, or because they have been there for too long.
How people get turned away because they don't want to make an effort to help those in need.. people who need emergency help, but leave because they were ignored.. pretty sad.
My option is fire the management and find someone who cares more about people than the mighty buck. When the ER first opened in the new area, there were plenty of doctors and nurses available, but since it wasn't like the big city's, they thinned out most of them, so now unless you're dying, they make you wait for what seems to be an eternity.
Vets have always got short changed, and now even Huggins won't treat them with any respect. How sad indeed, a port excuse for a hospital.
My injury occurred on a Saturday morning. I had an accident with a utility knife, and ended up with a bloody wound to the top of my right thigh.
I was kept waiting in their ER while a kid with a severe cough was seen first (understandable, of course). A man came in afterward complaining of constipation and abdominal pain. He was seen ahead of me.
Meantime, my leg began to twitch, and the blood soaked my pants leg, my sock, and began to fill my shoe. When I told the desk nurse they should maybe see me before the blood filled my shoe and ended up all over the carpet, a plainly overworked and foul-tempered nurse ushered me brusquely into a treatment area, sat me down, and bound my injured leg tightly. This made the wound hurt a LOT worse and did nothing for the twitching. At least it slowed the blood to a drip.
Then she sent me out to wait some more. After another hour of waiting, including curt reassurances that they'd get to me "when they can", we left.
My GP saw me first thing on Monday, and was amazed that Huggins hadn't stitched the wound immediately. They explained it was now past the point where it could be stitched, and that I'd have to be very careful. They also said recovery time would be extended due to the lack of stitches. They gave me a tetanus shot, put me on antibiotics, and sent me home.
Huggins should have done all that without making me wait. I will glue myself back together with Superglue before I'll ever allow myself to be taken to this neglectful hospital's ER again.
I already wrote a review on this but when searching for a phone number for them for my primary care I noticed they removed it . I do not know if it is because they would not like people to know about the poor staff in there imaging department but I will never go back after a tech name Wendy refused to help me with a breast exam after they refused my two referrals & once I finally got in their tech was the nastiest most rudest person. Please never go there if you feel something cancerous is in you because this girl is very rude & will make you feel worthless. I do not know how she was able to keep this job after how I was treated but I can say this the rest of their staff at Huggins besides the imaging department is very nice & I have always been pleased with them.
Just got my flu shot at the Huggins Flu Shot Clinic. What a great idea, Flu Shot drive through. Staff was very friendly despite being frozen and the process was very quick. Thank you.
