You would have a hard time finding a better group of nurses and staff.... strong orthopedic program.
So I’m from Colorado I messed up my knee and I’m driving back to Colorado in a few days. So I don’t have the time to go thru a dr recommendation to get and mri to have to go back to another dr to see the results. So I went to the ER thinking this classified as an emergency. The staff was understanding and friendly. I think where my troubles started is before I even see the dr they wanted to rush me off for an X-ray? Which I don’t understand my bones aren’t broken I hobbled in to the er so it’s clearly not broken. Since I refused the X-ray I had to wait a few more hours to get in and see a dr. They told me they were cleaning a room for me and that’s what was taking so long. So finally I get in to the er and they have a bed sitting right in the hallway and they said it was mine so That’s what took so long to clean? anyways when the X-ray tech. Came up and asked me why I refused the X-ray I told him the same thing that my bones aren’t broke, I need and mri to see the soft tissue that’s torn. (They would take 20 xrays and only use one or two of them and charge you for all of them) Well they didn’t like me recommending my own treatment and not wanting to waste money on pointless machines when I know what my problem is. Finally after 5 hours I seen a dr at 2:30 on 01/14/19. This dr was a younger guy he didn’t wear any gloves walked up to me touched my knee and said it’s a strain. I asked him how he knew it was a strain without and mri and he said that he examined my knee with his hand and he knew what it was? At this point I knew I had lost the trust of this dr and he was becoming very hard to talk to. I explained that I was about to drive 800 miles in this knee back to Colorado and he told me “that’s your problem” I asked him if I cannot get a recommendation for driving to drive or not to then I could get into a wreck on my way back he stated “that’s your problem”. So at this point I was get furious I asked him about his oath he took to his patients to not send someone hurt into an unsafe condition and he agree and said that me driving was my problem. This dr is nothing but a joke and I will be contacting Harrison HR department, I will be contacting the ethic board, and when I get back to my dr I’ll be emailing my results to this joke of a dr. When we have dr that don’t care for the patients, they are just there for the paycheck they will misdiagnosed people all day (which was the case about 50% of the people in the ER said they were misdiagnosed at that ER. This back county dr is going to get someone killed if he hasn’t already.
This hospital staff here is very friendly it's so much better than Baxter!! Baxter has a nurse Lacey R in ER that you need NOT TO LET TOUCH YOU!! She also works on air ambulance not a good experience BE AWARE!!!!!
I took my wife in this hospital because she has two veins that pop up and bad hurting pain and numinss in her lower leg they got the ultra sound out and check her upper thy and foot not even the stop that was hurting her then told her to take baby aspen im taking her somewhere else
If I could give no stars I most definitely would if at all possible go to Washington regional I mean hello their doctors don't even want to work at this hospital this is the sorriest hospital in the nation
