feedback about North Fulton Hospital
Knowledgeable doctors and friendly nurses. We came to ER and our stay took not longer then 2 hours! We love it here! Newest technologies on equipment used. Thumbs up!
The staff in icu were amazing. Great communication and care. They saved our daughters life, severe allergic reaction, and treated with respect. Amazing job everyone thank you
I was brought into this hospital by ambulance. I could not walk or talk, I was vomiting, and I had lost all control of my extremities. After waiting for an hour in this condition, I was finally given a room. The staff dropped me while moving me to the bed, the CAT scan technicians lost my earring and told me they found it (when they hadn't), and I waited for six hours when there was barely anyone in the ER. I was diagnosed with a migraine and vertigo, and I was sent home while still not able to walk or talk. After a visit with a neurologist at Emory St. Joseph Hospital, it was discovered that I actually had a stoke that was caused by a hole in my heart the size of a penny! I feel very lucky to have received medical services from a different hospital because the diagnosis from North Fulton was SO FAR off base! I hate to think of what would have happened to me if I had listened to this hospital without getting a second opinion.
This has to be the laziest, non-service oriented hospital imaginable. First of all, if you call the main number, most of the time the phone rings many, many times before (or if) they answer. There is no plan for the customer discharge. You have to call every day and ask and most times if you leave a message, no one calls back. Then eventually, they will tell you the patient is being discharged in 30 min. to an hour! There is no way to plan for picking up someone from this hospital. Doctors won't call you back, nor will the nurses. EMT's insist on bringing people here against my wishes. I hope I never have to use this hospital again!
What a HUGE improvement since the last visit to the ER , which almost ended up in a malpractice suit!! Used the free ER reservation and seriously within an hour -Triage was done- Blood was draw-Urine Test done- CT Scan done!! Dr. Hanzel was a great Doctor- listened - didn’t rush. They had no beds available at noon when we arrived and we did have to stay in the hall but volunteers, techs everyone was very happy,cheerful, comforting - Labs were completed Diagnosis complete just under 4 hours which included IV fluids. For this hospital - that’s AMAZING! A lot of the WellStar systems and techniques are now in play which really speed the processes up tremendously and keep the nurses techs and doctors in the loop at all times . A few years ago I would have been like others who’ve commented and said “ run the other way” but today seriously changed my opinion. I highly recommend using the free ER Reservation system it cuts out all the paperwork and gets you in fast. Of course you must be mindful of serious emergencies that may arrive before you and slow things down but that is certainly understandable and acceptable.
