If I could give a negative amount of stars I would. I hate this place with a passion. My dear father was left to languish in triage for 5 hours while he slowly died from sepsis. He was told less than 48 hours prior that he had flu and to go back home, he would get over it. He goes back that afternoon around 1 pm, they tell him he has pneumonia, but they don't rush to treat him despite him being 67 and showing signs of going downhill fast. Breathing trouble, mottled skin, changes in mental state. No urgency whatsoever despite family members pleading with the nurse and doctor to please come help him quickly. His organs failed and he was pronounced dead at 6:10 pm. We were left sobbing and devastated while staff all around us laughed and continued about their jobs. So very disgusting that this former Marine who served in Vietnam was treated this way. I miss my dad every day. I hope that one day the nurse(s) and doctor(s) who "tended" to him feel the same pain and anguish we have.
I have not had any complaints. Nurses are very sweet, caring and professional. Very friendly. Wait time is normal for any medical procedure. Atmosphere is very busy. Waiting room is comfortable. Plenty of plugs, you just have to move chairs to locate. Cafeteria on first floor and a Starbucks. Televisions on wall to keep you occupied.
My trip to the ER overall was very good. I experienced chest tightness and dizziness the day before and was put ahead of everyone. I was admitted and my heart was monitored overnight. Cardiologist suggested stress test but was unable to say when and have to wait for a call. I really hope that someday VA hospitals are able to perform any tests necessary for heart patient like me anyday and anytime. As I sit and wait, I am now seriously considering getting my own health insurance coverage
Currently waiting to be see in the ER. Checked in at 9:32pm it is now 12:59 amand I have yet to be seen. Many individuals that have come in after me have been seen yet I am still waiting, told the Attendant I am in a tremendous amount of pain yet I am still waiting. Beginning to think it is due to my race, the individuals like me that have been waiting around the time frame as me are all people of color. The ones that have come in after us and are already back we’re nit people of color. This is America at its finest 3 hours and still counting, black man who served his country and was disabled waits because his race.
Brought my brother here who had acute head pain (not a headache) still here 3 hours later after shift change and I literally just watched a lady add "heart" and "love" stickers in the window. A guy I didn't even know was on the floor and no one blinked an eye, my brother ended up getting in before him after I had to get upset with 4 people. There was an awful lot of laughter coming from the desk for so many people to be in pain in the lobby. Garbage service, Lousy Hospital.
