Imagine our loved one has been sick for some time and your loved one is admitted to this hospital. His IV machine is not working so he pushes the nurse call button and the responding person tells him a nurse will be right there to take care of it. After 30 minutes no one shows up so your loved one pushes buttons until the noise stops. Now imagine the same day your loved one is waiting for his lunch (your loved one is 5'9" and weighs 115 lbs.) at 12:30 he pushes the nurse call button and lets them know his lunch has not arrived and is told they will take care of it. You arrive to his room at 1:40 pm and you ask your loved one how his lunch was and you are told he didn't get any lunch. You go out and let the staff at the 4th floor desk know that your loved one did not receive his lunch. A nurse states he will call down and take care of it. That nurse comes to your loved ones room and tells you that his lunch will be right up. Lunch does not arrive until 2:30 pm. How would you feel about this hospital. I could go on but I don't think it would make a difference. Onslow Memorial Hospital WHERE PEOPLE CARE. Well, some people don't care.
I think your board should make some changes to the psych patient policy. Only one family member? At least two should be allowed if the child is a minor . A mother and a father should not have to take turns seeing their mentally ill child. Please take my comment into consideration, I myself have had to go thorough this process.
I loved it I just delivered my daughter on Tuesday by doctors Hoffman and the nurses. I'm on my last night I'm sore and my fiance had been at work and got off and helped me with our baby it's 12 am and he finally passes out. So i paged the nurses button because I couldn't move and my baby girl was crying and I need help putting her in my arms, the lady (whom wasn't my nurse) came in all loud and rude saying wake the dad up being snotty and mean. She left the room and loudly said are you kidding me. I don't know her name but she was the only bad thing out of my actual stay. Everyone else was amazing and very helpful. From the delivery crew (ms rita Is awesome) to the night crew in nursery everyone was a blessing. Thank you for helping me with my little girl. 💜
After moving to Jacksonville from Pa..the need finally arose to seek out a hospital. I was in severe abdominal pain for 3 days prior to Feb.2nd.So i look on line for the closest E.R. So i go to onslow memorial. I couldnt be happier with my choice..From the moment we walked in, we were treated in a professional manner, half hour to fourty minute wait time to get back to see nurses and Doctor. All were caring and sympathetic to my condition.Cant thank all involved enough.

Well, when we first arrived there was an elderly woman in the corner of the freezing waiting room screaming for help. Never a good sign. Currently awaiting treatment, and so far there’s only been one polite and caring nurse.
If it’s life or death, drive an hour somewhere else. Cause you won’t get help here.
