feedback about Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital
I have severe back problems and I had to stand up or sit in an uncomfortable chair to fill out the forms. With pain level at 10 the receptionist made sure I stayed and filled it out before being helped. Got a bed in the hallway next to old book shelves and equipment. Nurse gave me an anti inflammatory shot and I was left alone. Still in pain and confused as to, "is this it...are we done"? So I got up in pain and limped out. I almost fell to ground from the pain at the steps outside. Only until my ride came, the nurse finally came out and asked "are you okay"? I ended up going straight to Wilcox where they have an MRI machine and their specialist said I needed surgery.
Great hospital and staff. They are reassuringly confident, concerned, efficient and in a word...proffesional! Patient centric care, and will address concerns, diagnose and treat right away and have you back out ASAP! Best emergent care experience I've ever had. Would recommend over any other hospital.
Go hear for exceptional care!
As I’m sitting in the waiting room a man walks in with his hand sliced down the middle bleeding out. NOBODY helps him for 25 mins. All of the other patients begged the doctors and staff to have him seen before them. They still took someone else before he was seen. Unbelievable.
I was seen at the emergency room,which makes it easier for a lot of people who live on the east side of the island than having to fight traffic to drive to Lihue. Unbeknownst to me, they are able to care for patients needing extending care in a hospital setting. Usually reserved for assisted care, they do have a few private and/or semi private rooms. I had to be admitted. I was given the choice to go to a larger hospital in Lihue, but chose to stay.
In the five days I had to be hospitalized, I received excellent care from friendly and knowledgeable staff who were willing to go the extra mile to make sure I felt at ease.
Head to the back of this hospital for great whale watching
