feedback about Mendocino Coast District Hospital
I was born here in 1982 and checked it out today for the first time to see where I was born and staff were really accommodating and kind. They allowed me to visit the maternity ward and to my surprise they had a photo on the wall of me from the day I was born. It was really special for me to experience this. This hospital is not your typical hospital. It’s very kind, warm and personable the way hospitals should be.
I have been to the ER several times over the past few years for knee injuries after falling and once when I had pneumonia. (2011-2017) Each time I was treated with respect and professional expertise. My condition is complicated by a chronic lung condition that causes shortness of breath after minor activity and a heart condition that causes rapid heartbeat. All relevant testing and xrays and examination by specialists were done carefully, even though it was late in the evening on a weekend for some visits. It is not pleasant to wait for several hours overall, but in the end, important to remember that it is so helpful to be able to be treated and have some answers at a time when medical offices are closed. The place was always clean and environment comfortable and at all times I knew I was not forgotten while I waited.
I went in to the ER for some help with some serious poison oak I have. Fast forward I'm sitting in a gown waiting the front desk nurse had me sign stuff, mid doing that I asked how much and she said it would be $600 for a ER visit. I told her I can't do that and I will just manage with the poison oak. I have poison oak covering my face, stomach, entire left arm, right forearm, entire lower legs, hips, lower back, groin, and neck.
The nurse said "Oh come on! You live out of your car and have a job, it's just $600". I can't find a place to live in the town here so I just live out of my car till I can find a job in a city where I can afford it. Just trying to pay off debt. Never going to a hospital again, just a bunch of scandals. I'm a 25 year old male and veteran.
Super helpful kind and awesome social worker (Gabrielle?) Thanks for helping us!
The emergency room is well organized, the staff, from the moment we arrived was sympathetic and very professional. The wait was minimal, the nurses and doctors were sympathetic and treated us beautifully.
An emergency is never fun. The treatment we received at the hands of the Mendocino personnel made it very bearable.
