feedback about Riverside Regional Medical Center
Nurses and doctors have always been competent, caring and helpful when multiple family members are at this facility, especially my elderly 93 year old grandmother. I spent 4 days & nights here and every single nurse, aide, therapist and doctor were superb. Hell even the cafeteria was great; Big selection and friendly staff. The food was not bad, I ate here several times. I’m shocked the rating is so low, I guess people just like to complain. This is a medical facility, not a 5 star hotel with award winning food...
My father will live out the rest of his life here and they have been nothing but caring, straightforward, gentle, and accommodating during our time here. We have been lucky to have had had his treatment at Riverside.
I had 2 of my children here back in 1979 and 1981 and I had no problems at all! The staff was very helpful and pleasant! My doctor, Doctor Edwards, was the best doctor ever. My husband was stationed at Ft. Eustis back then. I'm so glad I had my children here, the best hospital ever! Thank you Riverside for the wonderful memories!

The worst hospital I have ever experienced. The discharged my brother when he was worse off then when he came in, and even had the nerve to tell my dad they need beds. They didnt schedule any appointments for him for radiation or neurologist or even gave us the info so we could do ourselves. They recommended a rehab facility for him but didnt give us any info on that. He is declining more and we still havent received a call back as to where his radiation should be or any other follow ups. I will never let my family go here ever again
God awful facility. Half the monitors in the cardiovascular telemetry ward don't work. The hospital is not even remotely handicap accessible. For example the pharmacy/supply shop is on the far end of the facility as far away from the main hospital as you can get. Given my bad back and knees a trip to it has me screaming in pain by the time I get back. The food tastes like cardboard, worst hospital food I have eaten. The chairs have 0 padding and spending the night as a family member leaves you untested and sore. The decor of the place is 60's prison chic.
The nursing staff has been the lone bright spot in this nightmare. They have been wonderful. The hospital administration has been a typical penny pinching operation, trying to force patients out of beds as fast as possible without consideration of their health status. The doctors are poorly organized and don't communicate with each other properly resulting in days wasted in not getting proper treatment.
This facility is old and broken down, renovations are only going to do so much. They need to build a completely new facility and demolish this hellhole.
