feedback about Springs Memorial Hospital
Spent almost 3 hours here for a simple emergency room visit... I was seen quickly, but then had to wait for almost 2 hours to be discharged. I was quickly getting impatient so I walked to the discharge desk who sent me to the nurses station to ask about discharge papers. I explained to her that I've been here for over 2 hours and she told me that that was good for the emergency room and most people spend much more time than that... How ridiculous!!!
In January of 2017, my elderly father in law was brought in for a broken hip. He wanted to have surgery to repair it. His cardiologist approved the surgery but the anesthesiologist refused. So we asked for him to be transferred to CMC in Charlotte. He was admitted to springs memorial on a Wednesday and was not transferred to CMC until late Saturday night when we threatened a lawsuit. The weekend staff claimed there was no paperwork pending for his transfer from the weekday staff. He On Sunday morning he had the surgery at CMC, and made it through with no heart issues. However, during recovery, a blood clot that had developed from him laying on a broken hip for 4 days ran to his brain and caused a massive stroke. He never woke up. We should have sued for malpractice, but because he was 96 we were told no court would take our case seriously. However, the surgeon at CMC told us that he would have probably been fine if he had been operated on within 24 hours of the break. So we feel springs memorial prolonged his time there to get more $$ out of Medicare and his supplement, and essentially their greed resulted in his death. We Will Never Go To Springs Memorial Ever Again!!!
I delivered baby #3 at Springs. Our first two girls were born at another hospital in NC, and being new to Lancaster, we were a little leery of delivering at a small hospital. We were SO impressed with the quality of care and the staff! Dr Tiedt was AMAZING and calm, even with some small complications during delivery. The nurses, both for me and the baby were so attentive. Even after discharge I was able to call the nursery nurse with some questions (it was a holiday weekend and the pediatrician was closed) and she was so patient and helpful!
I cannot say enough good things about the staff at Springs Memorial Hospital. I stayed at this hospital for a week and I was treated with kindness and concern throughout the entire week.
The nursing staff is outstanding the nursing assistants are sweet and caring. The janitorial staff is on the ball and keeps everything nice and tidy and the food is actually pretty good.
I want to convey a huge thanks to the staff Springs Memorial Hospital for making my stay as pleasant as it could be under the circumstances.
If you read the rest of the reviews closely I think you'll find that almost all the bad experiences are in the emergency room. I have not been to the emergency room and so I can't speak for that, but it is unfair to blame the entire hospital for the actions of the emergency room.
This hospital BS wouldn’t let me go see my lil sister in the ER then tell me to come back tomorrow to visit her for 30 mins
