I arrived at 6pm on a Tuesday with severe gallbladder pain. It is currently midnight and I have yet to be seen. No one once asked my pain level. I have watched people that arrived after me go in well before me and I keep hearing I'm next.
If I make it out of here alive, I assure you neither I nor anyone I care about will ever be back here.
So my 83 yr old was taken by EMS to the ER on 11/4/2018. She was diagnosed with Dementia 3 yrs ago. I went there for HELP. They placed her in the ‘blue’ area...I’m guessing their mental health area. She was not admitted, but kept over night. They had a list of her meds, which have been the same for 10+ years. I went to talk to a social worker this morning. She spent the night on a gurney with just a thin sheet for a blanket. She was not given any medication last night or this morning. When I saw her, I was shocked! She looked horrible, no sleep!! Had they given her, her medication last night she would have been able to sleep or at least relax. She takes A stomach pill in the morning, along with other meds. None given. She was nauseous and had an upset stomach. She was pasty white and warm to the touch. I went there looking for help... I decided to just bring her home. Was told I couldn’t... that I also needed discharge papers... Well she was never admitted, so I don’t need discharge papers. Was told it was against medical advice. Well, I never talked to a Dr so there was no medical advice given.... IF YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOUR LOVED ONES ARE TREATED CORRECTLY... KEEP THEM HOME!!!
I'm visiiting from WV and today I fell and had to be taken to the emergency room. I was treated so well by these folks! And quickly! My experience was the best at any hospital ER! Thank you to the kind and caring employees who made me feel,like I was the only and most important person in the department.
Don't go to the cafeteria expecting to get good service. I asked for a meal, was effectively ignored and another guest was given the same meal I asked for. I guess they really don't approve of my "type" of people there.
This is a wonderful hospital. I've been here for both of my pregnancies, and the complications surrounding them. The nurses and doctors are great and so friendly. Particularly during my first pregnancy, I was amazed at the kindness of the staff. One nurse that was there, especially went above and beyond and helped me brush my hair and clean up after a pretty rough c-section and several days of no sleep. I went back to the hospital after my pregnancy and brought flowers to several of the staff because I was so impressed by their kindness. The only thing I could say is that perhaps the hospital in parts could use a little updating, but it is always clean, so there are no complaints there.
