The behavioral care unit is highly flawed. The staff was very neglectful and uncaring towards the teens and the treatment was horrible. Staff was very rude and disrespectful towards patients and several were mistreated due to their behavior and mental problems. The staff was very abusive, and did not treat these poor teens correctly. I for sure, was very grateful I got help, but things could have been executed way more properly. The rooms are dirty and run down, the food is disgusting and the nurses and staff treat you like you're subhuman due to your health problems. They need a better staff and more money to properly fund this program.
I was literally thrown out by security after I was l was later diagnosed with deadly bacteria. I was escorted out for asking for a second opinion. I sat at the roadside waiting for a ride as I couldn't stand. A few minutes later the security guards and city cops forced me to leave the area or they would arrest me. I was admitted in the same hospital a few weeks earlier for a major emergency and stayed there for nine days. I caught the deadly bacteria in their hospital. I struggled to find a hospital in town to be willing to take me and offer help but a couple of them gave me antibiotics and sent me home. The many antibiotics they gave me worsened my condition. I heard about a Ridgeway hospital in Irmo and immediately I was admitted and kept there for almost a month. The staff of every hospital deal with sick people everyday and they are overworked and stressed out about dealing with their bosses, patients and their own families. But, they are making a living of off their sick costumers and paying their bills and supporting their families with the money they make so why do they have to be so mean and treat some people so bad that they end up killing or harming many of them? It's much better for them to work in a factory and yell at the machines all day long before they kill more people with their negligence. I offer my highest respect and thanks to those staff that care about us and treat us humanely with dignity no mater how tough it gets.
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.
This icu is by far the worst there is and the nursing staff all needs to be replaced. I have never see such inadequate hospital, especially in icu. The nurses are just awful, the doctors may know what they’re doing but have no bed side manner and that’s fine if the care received was substantial enough but it’s not. This is by far the worst hospital.
I cannot believe what my son and I just experienced in the ER of this hospital. Please please save yourself the trauma and go elsewhere. We arrived at 3pm and we waited until 3:30 AM to get to a room and be seen. The staff was extremely rude and unprofessional. The waiting room was filthy dirty and smelled like pee and other nasty smells. When we got back to a room THAT was also totally dirty. I cannot believe OSHA and DHEC havent closed this place up! I have been in the medical field before and know proper procedure. The nurse dropped a bunch of stuff on the floor including her pen and picked it up off the floor. She put an IV in my son with the band that fell on the floor. This place was worse than the worst gas station I ever went to the bathroom in. They gave us this horrible experience but you better believe a women was in there ASAP wanting $208 from me for deductible and co pay. How do they know what it cost when we hadn’t even seen the doctor? The bathroom we had to go to was also extremely dirty!! I refuse to ever go to the hospital again. They wouldn’t of got any stars from me if that was an option. How can a hospital exsist in this day and age in the USA! Ironically, my 23 years old son was born in this hospital but it’s not a suitable place for health care anymore.
