I was assaulted and went to the emergency room for help. There was no one in the waiting area so I saw intake quite promptly. They asked me if I got into a fight where I told them I couldn’t remember (perhaps I was knocked out or had a concussion) and that I’m on blood thinners and couldn’t stop bleeding. I was shown the rest room and was left alone. I went back into the waiting area where the doors where closed and blind pulled down tight. I was in a lot of pain perhaps broke a rid, and bleeding all over myself. I was also confused and waited for what seemed a very long time but no one came to me. I finally got up and drove home. Luckily I didn’t get into an accident. Way to go south county hospital. I plan on speaking to an attorney. Something needs to be done.
Know this if you ever end up having to go to this hospital after 2nd shift you should very well know your care will be next to nothing please get out of there because. The third shift Doctor Doran if you can call him a doctor he's not but he can Use The F word very well F word comes out very fast and clear and it won't save your life
Avoid this hospital. They’re not fully equipped to handle patients. I cut my finger and I was told by 2 nurses in the ER that I need stitches. I waited 6 hours to see the doctor and when she came she was very rude and unprofessional and said who told you your finger needs stitches and she put bandaid and left. She came back to throw couple papers for me to sign without saying any word and disappeared. She seemed sleepy and disrespectful. Totally waste of time and money. I’m sure another patient needed that room more than me. They made me wait 6 hours in it for a bandaid while the waiting area was full of patients.
This hospital ER has become very ill equipped to deal with patients in the after hours -especially. TERRIBLE. I have a history of diverticulitis, and went in last night - with pain and fever and had experienced a 101 temp - the ydid a CT scan and urine and blood test - nothing showed on the scan - BUT I had been taking Amoxicillin since 24hrs before that - because I know from experience - and SoCo Hospital would know too - if they had believed me and checked their records! I've been there over 4 times for it!! Who wouldn't then give the antibiotics?? As a precaution anyway?? He gave me nothing with some paperwork that said "unexplained pain in lower abdomen" - it was the same as before - cramping, tenderness, pressure in center of bladder area, fever, I told them I KNEW the symptoms WELL - and presented with all of those. The only thing that was different was the fever - because the Amoxicillin that I took the day before broke it - before I arrived there 24 hrs later..THANK God I had some..is all I can say.
ALSO - a woman hawked some sputum or something into a plastic type bag with a rubber ring at top and her companion threw it into the waste can near all of US - NO one cleaned it up - just left in an open waste can - EVEN after I TOLD them about it.
This is my second bad experience at So Co Hospital ER - ( once for waiting hours while people watched something on a screen, they were all standing around doing that - and then not addressing the tick bite I had, while visiting for diverticulitis in the past - ) something has GONE TERRIBLY WRONG there. I complained once to their hotline and got a call back - but now I go to the director. I see other complaints here about Dr. Duran - even my Dr. aid he was ill advised NOT to give me the antibiotics that I had previously started the day before since I only had 4 left - even if nothing showed on the scan - knowing my history of 4 times there for the same thing - this place I fear, has become a joke in the ER, anyway.
I usually have an uncomfortable experience going to the ER, but I had to go back on Saturday and I have to say Laurie Anderson treated me with the upmost respect and listened to me and treated me absolutely fantastic!!!!!! I can truly say that she is the best ER doctor and I wish more had the respect and bedside manner as she does.
