feedback about Northside Hospital Forsyth
Delivered my last baby here based on the hype of how awesome the women’s center was, etc. My room was clean. The food was palatable. The staff was nice. Ordinary hospital at best, but nothing fancy or extravagant about it like the reviews made it seem. Nevertheless, I’d return again if needed since my stay was a good one, but next time with an average expectation and maybe a packed lunch lol
Cumming area needs some competition to this overly bureaucratic, money maker.
I spent the better part of the past year getting random bills sorted for services last year. The billing dept. is tough to communicate with and incredibly vague. It took them almost 12 months to finally start sending mail to my correct address.. I could tolerate it as medical staff aren't bad.
Today, I had to simply pick up a sample kit and drop off. Pickup was fast. Past experience with exact same test, drop off would be 15 min max. No..not with NHF..No they need to have you wait to register with a bureaucrat, require a band on your wrist, and wait an hour...just to find out you didn't need to be there waiting to confirm anything. All up, 1/4 of a day for a REALLY simple exercise. I will be watching my billing on this as I found the entire experience brutal.
This was comical evening..........maybe not. I've felt horrible all day and got worse towards the evening. Lightheaded, numbness in my left arm and a weird feeling in my chest. So I headed to the emergency room.
Here' where it get comical and bizarre. They did an EKG and drew blood right away before taking me into a room. I waited a while and the was taken to a room and then the nurse comes in and starts draw blood on me again and my wife says to him he's already given blood.....so he takes the half vial and throws it away. Then starts to hook me up to do an EKG and we told him that had already been done so he stops.
Wait for the results for the blood and EKG to come back ( took an hour)and was told I a urinary tract infection and they start to give me antibiotics via IV. The doctor comes in a few minutes later and lets us know that the antibiotics were for someone else and not for me and I don't have a UT infection and admits it was his fault.
I wait for the doctor to come back and then my arm gets numb and asked my wife to check to see what the tightness was and discover that the blue rubber band the put on you arm real tight to draw blood is still on my arm and took it off.
What they determined was that my sodium levels were dangerously low and then gave me a saline drip that made me feel better.
My rating may be a little generous.
I rushed here from work on a Friday afternoon while having painful contractions. I was disappointed at first because there was no one at the admissions desk for check in at labor and delivery. There was a sign up that said she’d be back. There was 1 other woman waiting to be checked in as well. The receptionist appeared 15 minutes later and was apologetic. She said no one had checked in for hours so she ran to do something. Other than that, this place is quick, attentive, and just phenomenal. I ended up staying for 3 days to prevent preterm labor and the nurses were amazing. Especially Dawn and Nicky! It felt nothing like being in a hospital. Thank you all for taking care of me. I’m happy to know this is where I will give birth.
Very glad to discover a hospital that's beyond our expectation. The staff ( ER, front desk, admissions to the nurses, technicians, doctors) we interacted with were both very kind, & professional. We felt welcomed at every stage of emergency visit. The nurses especially are god sent!
Thank you Northside Hospital Forsyth!
