feedback about Pikes Peak Regional Hospital
It had been a very long time since I had to take a child to the ER at 9:30 at night. I had my grandson for the weekend and he ended up with a double ear infection. The staff and doctor on call the evening of 2/8/19 were absolutely awesome. So blessed to have the staff and hospital up here in Teller County!!
Honestly, after reading previous reviews and having friends share not so great experiences here, I was determined to avoid the same treatment. The closest ER is an hour away and our local urgent care closes at 6pm. Last night my daughter called me at work (she is 14) and she said she did not feel right and that she felt something was really wrong with her. She complained she was thirsty, dizzy, had blurred vision and that her heart was racing. I drove home and immediately headed to PPRH. She never complains and is rarely sick so I felt this warranted a trip to the closest ER. Upon our arrival we were quickly checked in and in a room in 5 minutes. The nurses and Dr. were AMAZING, especially when drawing blood from a girl who is deathly afraid of needles. My 9 year old son was there too because I had no choice but to take him and they treated him great! They offered him snacks to tie him over and kept checking on us while labs were ran, making sure we weren't just in there for hours with no updates. My daughter ended up being dehydrated and does have a viral infection but they ruled everything else out first. They were kind, compassionate and had wonderful bed side manner. My daughter is so afraid of Dr.'s in general and she kept saying how it wasn't scary and how nice they were to her.
I have been in multiple times for extreme abdominal pain and vomiting. Told me on separate visits that I had meth in my blood stream and released me with a diagnosis of drug overdose and ploblems. I Have NEVER Done Drugs In My Life!!! Once sent me home and I continued to vomit for 9 more days. Told them I could feel problems in my intestines and they all smirked at me like you can't feel things there! Guess what I have been diagnosed with celiac disease and I can feel my intestines bc that's where all the damage is being done to my body at. Terrible place, Terrible PEOPLE!!! Thank you for treating me with such respect, dignity, common courtesy, and professionalism!!
They really need to make a 0 star option, am I right?
I've been here a few different times... let's start with the first one..went in for a knee injury, they took xrays and somehow didn't see the bone lesion a few centimeters above my knee?
Second time I went there for what i thought was a kidney stone but they thought was a waste of their time.
The last time I went there i was transported there by an ambulance due to a lot of vomiting, shaking, cold and hot flashes, could hardly talk and my whole body was numb for hyperventalting. They never gave me oxygen even though i could hardly breathe and my oxygen was low.. they pumped me full of zofran (a total of 3 times) even though it never worked. I could go on and on. They're very rude, oh and a Male said to my fiance when he was asking for a doctor that we "got here after like 6 other people". I get that. Shouldn't we all be treated equally? Bring more doctors on. The er is the EMERGENCY ROOM not the I can wait 6 hours and still feel the exact same.
LAST tidbit - I refused the ct scan the doctor wanted to order because I COULDNT STOP VOMITING LONG ENOUGH. Well they sent 3 people in to see if I had changed my mind, they had come to take me to imaging.
Dear God we need a better hospital in woodland park.
Went into the er multiple times vomiting. Told them could feel something wrong with my intestines. Dr's just smirked at me accused me of being on meth and sent me on my way. Turns out I have celiac disease and I really could feel problems in my intestines. Thank you for the rude, disrespectful, unprofessional treatment I received here.
