Terrible, lack of concern for patients, extremely long wait time.
I brought my girlfriend here at 1am because she was complaining of a terrible ear ache. It was obvious she was in a lot of pain. We got there, they admitted her in, and put us in a room. They placed her as a level 4 patient (minimum priority) because of her symptoms. I understand. It's a hospital, they probably have people there with way more serious problems that they must tend to first. Here's my problem. My girlfriend is laying in the bed, in tears because the pain is so intense. She keeps asking me, can you please ask them to get me something? I keep telling her you'll have to wait. Well. We did. For 2 hours. After watching her writhe in pain for so long, I decided I needed to ask the nurses if there was anything they could do to help her pain soon. So I leave the room and get the attention of the nurse. I tell her, please my girlfriend is in agony. She's crying and screaming. Can you give her anything at all to help with the pain soon? That is what an ER does right? She tells me, I'll be there shortly. I go in sit back in the room, I wait patiently, watching the nurse walk back I'm forth several times in front our room, over the course of 20 minutes. Then, I see her put a bag over her shoulder, and call out "see y'all tomorrow", as she leaves. Absolutely no regard for the patient. Terrible Terrible service. I told my girlfriend, let's go. Can't believe we wasted nearly 3 hours in this dump and didn't even get seen by a doctor. We left and will not be returning to this awful hopsital. I would never recommend to anyone.
My mother is very ill and has been to this Er room every month or so for the past 3 years. The ER staff is inconsiderate of the patient and family waiting for a room. You walk out to ask when will my mother be moved to her room 7 hours later we are still sitting in ER. My mother is elderly every in loosing blood they don't know where she is bleeding from. Nurse gets upset if we ask what is going on. She tells us she does not know. The ER staff is clueless. Time to switch doctors and go to Lourdes hospital
Very good hospital. Staff is super nice and doctors work very hard to treat you.
I had a biopsy done an the staff an doctor's were wonderful! Everyone made me feel so comfortable an took time an explained every detail!
I will be having a 2nd surgery at Lafayette General. The recovery staff/nurses is excellent. The other staff I've dealt with on both occasions were unprofessional and make many mistakes.. They made mistakes on medication instructions, they made mistakes on my account, and other inconvenient miscommunication mistakes., like wrong time to get to hospital for surgery, not getting anything to eat for 36 hrs, even when on a regular diet. When they called the day before to inform me of my instructions for my surgery the next day, they gave information from another patients chart! This is unacceptable. Whenever given a choice to go to any other hospital, I would go anywhere else, not choose LGH.
