Save yourself time, effort, frustration, rage and more. If you are looking for quality care do not go to the Digestive Health facility here. I am sick and my life is suffering. My work is suffering, my family life is suffering, my sleep is suffering and my quality of life is terrible right now. Here is the process I have had to go through: I have an appointment, have to wait 1 week to get my results, have to wait 1 week for a follow up appointment for them to schedule another procedure that is a week out then a week for the results, a week for the follow up appointment. Do you see where I am going with this? I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with me FOR MONTHS. The straw that broke the camels back today, I spent 5 MINUTES....FIVE MINUTES in the with Dr today just so he could tell me the same thing the nurse told me over the phone A WEEK AGO and for him to tell me he was going to schedule me a surgical consult. So now I have to pay $50 for an office visit for him to tell me the same thing the nurse told me over the phone. WHY?! could that not have been done a week ago when my test results came back AND NOW I have to wait another WEEK for my surgical consult. No compassion, caring, empathy or urgency for someone who is sick. My father was in the army we moved around a lot I've been to several hospitals, had several different doctors, nurses, admin staff but I have never been treated like they didn't care and like I didn't matter and like my health concern was no big deal. This place is just the worst.
The nurses were great to me! There is this one male tech who pulled and pulled the rubber band tourniquet until it gave me a rub burn with trying to draw blood. My arm was black and blue around that area. Then the new doctor comes in and sends me home right in the middle of hurricane Florence. I told him I live in a danger zone area and you are sending me back there in my condition. I have a server bowel obstruction and it had not resolved yet when he threw me out. His answer to this problem was to hand me a 12 page listing of shelters.. In my condition you want me in a shelter? Seriously!! When family and friends called to talk to management they hung up on everyone...even my kids.
Food is horrible... Who eats sweet tomato soup? It was sweet like koolaid! Chicken salad sandwich was chicken on hard white bread and a mayo pack.. I don't even know why they ask what you want for your next meal because they never bring you what you order.
I'd like to say that the nurses were great..
I’m so angry as I type this review. If i could do negative stars I would. After being in the healthcare field for over 10 years it’s very easy to recognize when someone is not receiving the care that he or she deserves. This is by far the worst place I’ve ever encountered. The care is not that of a trauma center. My cousin who was in a ATV accident was air lifted there within minutes of the accident. The ED doctor refuse to do any surgical procedures to reduce the swelling in his head, knowing that if they didn’t the damage would worsen. 48 hours into being in ICU, seeing that the medications and less invasive medical interventions won’t working they did nothing else but pump him with pain medicines that sedated him even more. There’s so many pieces to this puzzle. The neurosurgeons at this place failed my cousin! The failed his kids by not giving him a fair chance to live & watch them grow up! They failed his mother who now has to bury her son! They sat around and waited until the tissue in his brain completely died from the swelling! Don’t take your loved ones here! Yea there are some good reviews and we trusted the good ones when the not so good ones really told the true experience! He’s now gone and next week his mother has to bury her only son! I won’t let this rest! I will reach out to whomever to report the prolonged delays and refusal to provide definitive care. MCLeod Regional Hospital, we as a family will fight until we can’t fight anymore!
I won't go into everything experienced here. I will just make two points. First, there is a new little urgent care in Hartsville....Hometown Urgent Care, at Bobo Newsome Highway. They have great, efficient, knowledgable people and excellent management. Its a 20 minute drive. The cost savings alone is worth the drive. If you were part of my family, I would take you there to spare you the bad experiences you see that are a habitual problem at this hospital. You have a choice...even here! In the meantime do pray for this management because they are currently unwilling to even consider the mindset that they should be treating people like Jesus told us to; literally, they refuse to think of treating patients like part of their family even as a thought experiment (yes, they literally said this). But more than praying we can all try to go elsewhere. For some people, only when it hits their bottom line will they change. The clinic up there is small but its like a goldmine in a wasteland. I almost didn't even want to tell anyone about it because I'm sure it will be flooded with people (we got in in less than 30 minutes); otherwise I have to drive 3 hours to UNC. But maybe if more people go there they'll expand. Secondly, if you are suicidal, depressed, or experiencing any mental health problems (as who wouldn't be given the state of the world?), you will be locked in a ward where no one, not even volunteers (yes, they don't allow volunteers in this ward), can visit you or bring you anything; it is less free than a jail, with open doors, lights in your face, and no access to phones or the outside world; this may not help your psychological status - extreme isolation. The hospital does not feel improvement of this is imperative, and blames regulations instead of taking personal accountability; I understand mental illness is difficult, and you may be needing help and encouragement - this is not the place to get it, and you will be trapped there overnight with no access to a psychiatrist anyway until daylight hours. I guess I should also mention that in a way, this hospital creates mental health issues, because some of their doctors overprescribe medicine. We narrowly saved our daughter from becoming a mental health patient by seeking a 2nd opinion at UNC, when a doctor here tried to drug her for epilepsy she didn't have. Drugging people when they are infants creates mental health problems later. This is a problem nationwide, its true. Sometimes, not going to the hospital at all is better than going. Personally, I would rather die in the street than put my trust in a hospital like this one. Maybe if we all encouraged one another rather than running to corrupt organizations we'd be better off. Also please pray for me. I was so bitter to basically be ignored on every effort I tried to make to help the hospital improve this experience for the mentally ill, that I recently have given up on my efforts at the food pantry and rebuilding efforts for Darlington county. I am also distracted in my parenting because I keep thinking why God didn't help me reform this hospital, and why at every juncture when I try to help others I am blocked by a million people saying "it's not really a problem, because I'm not suffering." Currently the bitterness is blocking me from even doing any good thing, like the doctor in Hartsville who is like a one man team against a world of corruption. I really do need prayers and others like me because, I cannot see a way to keep fighting with seemingly 10 people popping up at every juncture saying "it's okay, screw poor people, I'm comfy, it's not my family." I'm ashamed to say maybe I'm becoming one of them from bitterness. Hopefully Jesus comes back soon.
Great hospital and friendly staff. I see why they’re voted #2 hospital in the state.
