Smyth County Community Hospital is like the roach motels made by raid, people check in but they don't check out. On a serious note my father was in an accident and when I heard the news it was roughly 3 hours later he did not receive any care and was not given a room. They put him on a gurney near the automatic opening doors and cold gusts of wind hit him every time. He was in serious pain and had large amounts of swelling and bruising in the abdomen and neck. The reason he wasn't given a room was because the rooms were, "full". I left and took him to another hospital. When we arrived at the other hospital he received medical attention immediately. He had sustained 7 broken ribs, a broken collar bone, and a dislocated shoulder. Going to this hospital is a matter of life and death. If it all possible you and your loved ones should go to another hospital to get the care and help you need because you will not get it at Smyth County Community Hospital.
