If I could use a 0 rating that would be too kind for the horrible treatment I personally received in this ER and inpatient over the 2016 Christmas season. THERE IS NO DOCTOR ON STAFF AT THIS FACILITY,. There are 3 shining stars in this dark morass of ineptitude. SHIRLEY, a nurse on the 2nd floor. This beautiful lady was my only ally during my nightmare in this facility. The respiratory therapist with longer brown hair and also head of respiratory therapy (a man). These 2 people were very competent and knew what they were doing. The lady who kept my room clean, who cared if I got the one shower I had. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
BEWARE...this "hospital" has NO DOCTOR ON STAFF. This team is led by a CNP. L.S. No name...one of the cruelest, viscous, horrible non humans I've ever met..and I've spent my life around people. The incredible, nasty, words, actions and treatment she dealt out was laughable if I wouldn't have been so afraid, and being a stranger just visiting for Christmas, I had no choice. I had bacterial pneumonia. I could fill pages with my blow by blow account of my experiences suffered at this place. Please, please go to Live Oak Hospital owned partly by Shands.
They have 1 Doctor on staff. It's comical that the people if N. Central Florida settle for this lack of medical professionals. The perfect solution if you are stuck in this area IS DO NOT GET SICK.,DO NOT EXPECT MINIMAL CARE. STAY HOME.
