South Baldwin has the most poorly run and managed ER I’ve ever visited.
My mother had heart attack symptoms and we brought here her as it was closest to where she was.
The ER waiting room was packed full and we had to go wait in another room down the hall. We stressed to the Triage Staff her symptoms and it was possible she was having a heart attack, nonetheless we still waited.
When she was finally taken back, the ER was even more poorly run then the waiting room.
Nurses sitting, eating, and having a good time. No physician in sight. Only a PA bouncing from room to room.
There is no signal in the ER, so if you need to use your phone you have to go outside.
I had questions about the treatment and care and went to the nurses station. She was more worried about finishing her dinner then helping me. She said she would send someone when they are available.
The nurses did not have any kind of uniform on.
The only good thing I have to say is the PA was friendly and knowledgeable.
This is the most poorly run and managed ER (maybe even worse then providence), if it’s not life-threatening, I highly recommend you make the short drive to Thomas Hospital. The ER there actually has an adequate waiting room, and even then isn’t full the numerous times I have had to go there. Or even better, go to the new Infirmary Health Freestanding ER in Malibu’s.
