Updated from most recent visit.
Have visited in the past with great satisfaction. This review is about our last experience in the ER. My wife checked in with acute abdomen pain and was diagnosed and prescribed medication by Dr Murphy . My wife had disclosed in triage that she had taken another medication recently. Dr Murphy prescribed a medication that has a known severe drug interaction. As a result my wife ended up in our hometown ER two days later due to this error. My wife is recovering from this mistake...but unforgivable.
We have visited the ER 3 times in last 4 years for various family members including
myself. We are not originally from the area so are familiar with other Hospitals in the Midwest. Our experience was that McLaren Northern Michigan Hospital is TOP NOTCH. From check-in through triage ....friendly, efficient, and professional. We are thrilled to have such a wonderful and competent Hospital nearby. Special thanks to ER Dr. Sharp, the ER nurse (cannot remember her name), Kathy, and Vinny.
