I have only been to the maternity ward here. The entire staff I encountered were angels. I had my second child via scheduled c-section here. This was the best hospital stay I've ever had. I have never felt more comfortable. It's a smaller place so it felt more personal and not so chaotic. Almost like being home. I'll never forget the amazing people who helped us and I'd go back in a heartbeat.
I have never had a bad experience here. I’ve been to the ER about 4 times in the past 2-3 years. I recently moved farther out of town and I will still drive all the way here to be seen in the ER. The front desk staff are always friendly and never make you feel like you shouldn’t be there. They always tell me they hope I feel better soon. I have never waited in the waiting room for more than 15 minutes. I’m not even exaggerating. The nurses are friendly. The doctors are friendly and thorough. One time they even had a therapy dog come by the room. I know a lot of people seem to dislike the hospital but I don’t see why.
Terrible hospital, except for a few nurses. I came in November 26th, which I have a work excuse stating that I was there, and was told I had just a common cold and was sent home, no flu tests, no bloodwork, nothing. I come back December 6th, my symptoms have worsened extremely, high fevers, body aches, vomiting, unbearable cough, and I got seen again. When I told them I had come into the ER prior to that day, and they had only taken an X ray and send me home, they claimed to have no record of me there. I argued back and forth trying to tell them I had been there, and my boyfriend who was with me agreed. They finally took an x ray of my chest, drew bloodwork, give me an IV, and did a urine sample to which I was told it was just a virus. I’m just baffled at the fact they don’t even keep record of who actually comes in and out. It’s like they didn’t care to treat me. The only reason it gets as many stars as it does is because of the nurses, Dan, a red headed man, was the best nurse I have ever had, he really interacted with us, seemed shocked at the care I had previously gotten and was overall an amazing R.N. The other nurse that came in to chance the paper on the wall, (I didn’t get her name but she was taller and blonde) was sweet as well. Otherwise I do not recommend this hospital.
I went to the ER on Saturday morning, December 1st with aswollen and painful foot, mainly my right foot and right knee and leg. First, I had to ask for a wheelchair because it hurt to walk and, my right foot especially, was visibly swollen. Secondly, I was placed in a Treatment room where there was no button or way to contact a nurse if I needed to go to the bathroom, etc. I ended up having to get out of the bed with a real swollen and throbbing foot as well as painful knee and leg to go to the door to get help with going to the bathroom. Thirdly, the Nurse Practitioner came in and looked at my foot, I told her the problem started 2 weeks prior to me coming in. She ordered a ultrasound and an xray of my foot and leg. Because I had been suffering with a Bakers Cyst for over 8 months, I asked the person doing the ultrasound was it still there. Her response was, "Yes its stiil there but small", I thanked her. Fourthly, the Nurse Practitioner came back in and said everything was normal. I mentioned the Bakers Cyst and asked why weren't they doing any blood work.
She said it wasn't needed. I have Rheumatoid arthritis and Osteoarthritis and on medication that could possibly cause Kidney or Liver problems. I asked for blood work and she would only agree to check my blood count. I had a problem with that's and asked to speak with the doctor. Fifth, Blood was drawn only for my blood count and again, I was wheeled to a waiting area with no way to contact anyone without getting up with a swollen foot. It was about 15-20 minutes before the doctor came in with the Nurse Practitioner and stated he agreed with her decision not to do more bloodwork and at that point, I was in pain and totally stressed because of the treatment and beside manner i received. Six, I told the doctor that I was not happy with the care given and we went back and forth as to why i needed and wanted my liver and kidneys checked.
Finally he agreed and I'm assuming they tested the blood given for my blood count. I WILL NEVER GO TO THAT ER AGAIN. I WOULD RATHER TAKE MY CHANCES ON DYING TRYING TO GET TO BRUNSWICK OR JACKSONVILLE.
This hospital is ridiculous, my granddaughter was taken there with a rash on her whole body and we were told she had a virus, give her benadryl. Next day she was worse, took to a real doctor and found out she has Scarlet fever!!! These doctors apparently need more training. Scarlet fever can be very serious if not treated properly. And they prescribe benadryl....this is just uncalled for. Don't take your children to this place or anyone else.
