My experiences here were very nice. Great staff, who are exceptionally professional. I salute them all.
On December 6th 2018..I was in a car accident and brought to this hospital..I am not from Ohio..and it was a very traumatic experience
.These God sent people gave 100% plus..to give me excellent care..and make me feel well both emotionally and physically..I am doing better now and am back home..but still can't thank them enough..my cat Quinn thanks them too...God Bless all of you
.and Merry Christmas ..With much gratitude...Donna J Sherbutte ..and My Cat..Quinn..
over priced, poor service.run by a bunch of fat cat executives. hide behind "not for profit" etc.places like this are why healthcare is so screwed up in this county. $2500 for a few blood tests because you have insurance... as prices rise, so do deductibles and premium costs. the middle class get screwed while the fat cats get fatter (like the former CEO of this place Mr B+++gs that earned millions for sitting on his fat behind.. ) ER full of non paying Amish all the time.Enough said
I had to get an MRI. I really enjoyed the staff. They were very helpful and informative and took their time explaining the process to me. I'm not a small woman but I'm also not claustrophobic so I didn't think the procedure would be an issue. They have an older machine that is only 60cm in diameter. That is 23.6 inches across. My arms smashed up against my body as they moved me into the tube and I thought for certain I would get stuck. I felt like a tube of toothpaste being squeezed. I also found it difficult to breathe. Newer MRI machines are 70cm up to 72cm and there's the open MRI option however I am told the quality of that scan is not as good. I have to give the radiology department 3 stars for not having updated equipment AND not knowing their current equipment's limitations. It was a very bad experience.
Went to the ER for knee pain and checked in at 1:20. Wasn't taken to a room until 3:00. Doctor came into room at 3:20... never order an x-ray..and said to see an orthopedic doctor. He left in 5 minutes and said I would get discharge instructions and could go home. I sat and waited and waited... nobody brought the paperwork. My friend who brought me in had to leave to let her dog out.. was gone for over a half hour, returned and I was still there at 5:00... by 5:45 I had buzzed for help in my room, nobody came, still had no discharge paperwork. I am diabetic and was feeling sick.. needed to eat and get my medication. I hobbled out the hallway with two canes and not one person offered a wheelchair or help. Nobody came to check on my well being after over 2 1/2 hours and I was left sitting there. I left the hospital to go home because I needed to get something in me and my sugar had dropped and I was feeling shaky and weak. I called into the ER that same night at 8pm to get my discharge instructions and referral information. I understand that hospital ER's get busy, but they should be staffed and prepared for such things... and move staff as needed to handle paperwork and get the patients moving through. There's no reason why people should be left waiting in the waiting room to be seen while other patients sit in a bed for over 2 1/2 hours just waiting on paperwork.. and there were no prescriptions, no tests or x-rays.. or any other reason for the delay in the discharge. I feel this was totally unacceptable and I don't have any desire to have any surgical procedures done at this hospital if this is any indication of the way they treat patients. I sent a message through the patient portal to the person in charge of the ER.. and got no reply. Really sad. In this world of competition in health care, there is no excuse for this.
