While we were on vacation our 11 week old got sick. We took him to the emergency room. First and foremost I've been in healthcare for over 13 years. Major HIPA violations included: Checking our baby's vitals and weighing him in the waiting room area for the whole waiting room to see. No patient privacy at all. It was very embarrassing because they did not use a pediatric scale. They weighed my wife holding him and the weighed her alone and subtracted her weight from the total?!? I have never seen practices like this. You'd think that they would immediately triage a baby at 11 weeks old with a fever of 100, they haven't even checked his temperature with his vials, instead we are waiting in the waiting area and it's been over an hour so far...can someone explain to me this hospitals practices?!? The nursing staff could use retraining for their smart comments.
Tim, Emergency Room Physician Assistant was very good! He was very detailed and provided top notch care to our son! Tim is a very good professional! I give Tim 5 stars!
