After 4 hours, still waiting to see a doctor. The staff is nice, however, they should check on the older patients. My 85 year old mother can't take much more. Update: 5 hours and waiting.... never, ever go here or you will die waiting. Awe
Emergency not crowded, still was there 5 hours. After finally getting into the room, listened to the staff talking and joking, sitting around and doing no work. Tried calling back to ask questions about lab tests and leave a message for the doctor. Couldn't talk to him. They didn't know when he was coming in and wouldn't let me leave a message. Told me if the labs results showed a new prescription was needed, they ONLY mailed it out. I live out of state and it would take a long time to get it to me, with forwarding of my home mail, where they would send it. I volunteered to just come in to and pick it up if they would only call me. They refused to do that. I was not impressed with the visit, and appalled at follow up. Stay far from this place!
Was triaged right away ultrasound blood work I/V needle placed in arm. Sent back out to waiting room 4 hours later still waiting to see doctor. Young child with flu bug was taken in and released she came in after my husband. Was told when I asked how much longer that they take most critical first. No blood getting to my husband's leg comes after a child with flu bug. There is all kinds of HIPPA violations they take vitals in the ER and ask personal information while other patients are waiting to check in. The website says 13 minutes waiting that's true but what it doesn't say is how long it is taking to see a doctor. Neither I or my husband will be back here again. I will go to Orlando Health or Waterman before coming back here.
My 90-year-old grandmother was sent to the ER by her doctor, and she sat there for nine hours. They took blood and did a CAT Scan. She was under their care, but they left her in the waiting room for NINE hours. She soiled herself; my mother told the staff, and they did nothing about it. She was dehydrated, and she needed antibiotics to stop diarrhea, but they left her sitting in a wheelchair in the waiting room for nine hours in her feces. When my wife got there, she asked for the charge nurse, and miraculously, Grandma was sent to a bed.
This type of care is unacceptable!
If there were a negative rating I would give the highest negative rating possible. Unfortunately this is the closest hospital to where my parents live. My father has been in this hospital numerous times and each time has received the same level of terrible care. Not all of the nurses here are badd. I will however highlight the charge nurse named Pat. She is an older woman in her sixties and has the most terrible abusive attitude towards elderly that I have ever seen. She is aggressive not only to patients but 2 other staff members and aides. Her behavior alone warrants an investigation. In the state of Florida there is a law supporting elderly abuse which is not specific to physical but also psychological. Leesburg hospital needs to do something differently and change the way that they choose to care for their patients. After reading these reviews it is frightening that this hospital still exists.
