(Please read before you take a loved one here)
I came here when I was 4 years old, long time ago I know. I was so sick I couldnt even get on the 1ft high couch to watch cartoons. My great grandmother rushed me here (this hospital) and they told her and me that "it's just the flu" and sent me home. I thank God everyday that my grandmother had more sense than these people and took me to sentara suffolk because my appendix had burst and poison was filling my 4 year old immune system by the minute, I had to be sent by helicopter to CHKD to get my appendix taken out. After months of recovery and nearly two decades later I still have health problems linked to the amount of poison that was released from my appendix before I got medical help. There are so many people on here telling how they would have died because of the terrible diagnosis's of this hospital serves on rusty platters. This place should be condemned.
So we went to the emergency room. My daughter had an ingrown toenail. She removed it herself. Her toe is purple they didn't even write her an antibiotic after they told me she was getting an antibiotic. Complete waste of time. While we were there I finally talked to my husband to getting somebody look at his is knuckle on his middle finger. He had surgery years back and he's having problems with the joint. He asked the doctor if she thought it might be arthritis and she Shrugged her shoulders at him. Then he asked how would you even check for arthritis then she looked at him like she had no idea how. Then she said it was bad enough they can do an x-ray. Did they do an x-ray? No they sent us home.
Too bad I have to put 1 star to leave a review.
They are incompetent and rude as hell.
I brought my friend to the e.r. because he fall against a log, he was complaining about excruciating pain.
The first doctor came in and touched him where he was hurting and said, "you just sprained a ligament, you are ready to be discharge( after not even an hour), you will have to pick up some tramadol for the pain and an anti-inflammatory at Walgreen and you will just have to sleep it off".
The nurse came in and my friend asked if he could stay a little bit longer and her response was " you can stay for a couple more minutes but you can't stay overnight"
So I raised hell and thankfully it was the night shift coming in.
The 2nd Dr did and c.t scan and sent him to Norfolk general hospital where he had a surgery because he had a hole in his intestine!!!!!
So if we listen to the first Dr and kept my friend sleeping in a motel room by himself for a couple of days with painkiller, he would have been dead....
Stay away from this hospital..... I don't even know why it is still open......
I forgot, 3 years ago my father in law had a stroke, they gave him the wrong meds and he had to be moved to Richmond for internal bleeding and rupture of arteries because of the med they gave him.
The only thing they are good at is to charge you, or I should say OVER CHARGE YOU.
I can concur with a previous post from about my ER experience. The nursing staff at this ER was amazing. They were professional and caring. Dr. Harvey was just the opposite. I had taken a loved to be treated for loss of mobility. Was walking one day and the next day could not walk. Dr. Harvey ran many tears but discharged my loved one w/out speaking to me or the patient or providing any type of diagnosis. I had to request that she come in to speak to me. When I asked why my loved on had lost mobility her response was that her job was only to treat acute illnesses and that I needed to follow up w/ my loved in primary care doc concerning the loss of mobility. Does this sound like a doc that has care or concern about patients? Again, I commend the nursing staff but doctors like Dr. Harvey give SMH a bad name.
