Trying to find how to get copies of my x rays. Got only automated answer and nothing about how I get them. Called back to try and get a person to talk to then I was cutoff. These are MY records. They should be immediately available through the portal.
Unfortunately, my daughter, 5, was very sick and has now been diagnosed with asthma.
We rushed her here at about 2 in the morning September 2018. And they called a code on her and pushed us out, immediately putting tubes and IV’s. It was terrifying.
My daughter was in bad shape. And these amazing doctors and respiratory therapists and of course the nurses, all helped my daughter and us. We are going parents and have never dealt with anything of the sort. Our children have always been so healthy.
I pray we will never have to experience something of the sort ever again. But if we do, I would feel super confident taking my precious child to this hospital!!
Thank you for helping my daughter!!
Came in on a Saturday night with my partner who had just broken his wrist. The staff was super friendly and helpful. It took almost no time until he was called into triage. After that the wait to actually be seen wasn't bad for how busy they were.
The thing that really prompted me to write this review has been the response from the medical providers here at home (we are not from Washington). The hospital sent us home with paper and CD copies of the x-rays with instructions get it looked at asap so the bones don't heal wrong. They also advised it would probably need surgery. At urgent care at home the doctor was really impressed with the before and after x-rays and said the ER had done a great job resetting the bone. (My partner thinks the ER doctor did the resetting with guidance from an orthopedic specialist but not sure because he was unconscious at the time and I was in the waiting room.) Today we went to an orthopedic clinic to get the ball rolling on surgery. They took new x-rays and came back and said the ER did such an excellent job getting the bones aligned that it looks like surgery may not be needed. We have to go back in a week and if everything is still in place it will go straight to cast, no surgery or metal plates! So kudos to the docs and nurses on duty that night
I brought my wife to the ER with severe shooting pains, convulsions, vomiting. She was writhing in pain and unable to walk. I recognized the cause from two very similar prior ER visits in 2014. I tried to tell the nurse and doctor and was largely ignored. They released her without ever talking to her personally. She was vomiting and in such excruciating pain that she could not talk. To top off the experience, the doctor coded it as a back ache and so insurance wouldn't cover it and considered it a "non-emergency in an emergency facility." We have been trying for months to make this right, for nothing else than to alert the doctors should it ever happen again. We had wonderful care in 2014 and were sadly disappointed in our experience this August. We will not be using PeaceHealth in the future.
I simply do not understand the negative reviews about this hospital and the Emergency Room. I went in on a Sunday night suffering from extreme dizziness. Even though there were lots of people in the waiting room, I was interviewed, placed in a room, and seen by a doctor in very short order.
As tests were being conducted, a very pleasant and funny nurse was there the whole time, making my visit as comfortable as possible. The doctor took the time to fully explain what he found and how I should seek additional treatment after I left the ER.
I could not be more pleased with my experience and would not hesitate to return, should the need arise in the future.
