feedback about South Central Reg Med Ctr
South Central has to be the worst run and least efficient emergency room in the entire country. I witnessed many people being told they may want to try elsewhere because the wait is over two hours. Our wait is currently at five hours and counting. We had a minor injury that required some stitches but I feel like five hours is ridiculous. We are finally seeing the doctor now. The people are nice enough just have no sense of urgency. A young child came in ,potentially have appendicitis, after being referred to the ER by a clinic and they told her it would be multiple hours. Once the family decided to leave to go to Hattiesburg, the nurses decided to bring the child back to the ER. I cannot begin to understand what it takes to run an emergency room but there has to be a point where things have to move quicker.
If I could give zero I would this place killed my mother 6 years ago and almost killed my dad a few days ago. The night nurses on the 1st floor are rude and do not check on patients over night they allowed my dad to slip into a coma after carbon dioxide built up in his body. They aren't properly trained to care for paraplegic patients . ICU nurse was very sweet while we were there but the ICU lacks the basic technology that many of the hospitals have adopted such as cordless phones for patients to speak with family when they are depressed or need to hear a familiar voice . This isn't a hospital I would pick for a loved one trust me when I say go to Forest General !!
I had to go to the ER due to a supposed intestinal obstruction last week. First of all, the nurses are horrible at getting blood. I have two huge bruises on my arm, due to them "trying to find a vein". Excuse me, but I had it drawn this week at st. Dominic's and they found a vein without hardly looking and I dont have a bruise from that! Second, they wound up doing a CT scan and that horrible ER doctor came in and told me the obstruction was all fluid. Then she tells me I have a 6 inch mass on my left ovary and that it is cancer because it has solid mass. She freaked us out, all the while not even trying to close the door while telling my husband and I this. Um, excuse me, but it is possible for ovarian cysts to have solid mass and just be an ovarian cyst. It wasn't a full 60 seconds after she left I had a nurse come in and tell me that she's sorry to hear the news. Um, invasion of privacy much...I think that's a violation people. I'm not happy with that experience at all!!!!
I have had only 2 experience at this hospital and they both were good ones. My ex-wife was on life support and pulled thru and I spent two days when I had weird heart issues. The care and compassion were top notched. I couldn't have asked for better care and support. Most all hospitals are under staffed and the patient to care givers ratio is unreal. Just like any hospital, they charge way too much and do give unnecessary shots and test but it is what it is. I spent 2 days in there and my bill was over $14,000.00, which is so ridiculous.
It’s the best hospital in Laurel but only. Not the worst but not the best 🤧check out the cafeteria the foods good.
