feedback about Sturgis Hospital
is not the worst, but its pretty dam bad. i would recommend taking the time/risk of going to some where else if you have any type of "serious" problem. very few workers really seem to care about you or their job. they just see you as a liability making them have to do more work.
Respiratory Therapists play a vital role in the treatment of many patients, particularly those with any respiratory disease or cardiac complication. How dare you remove such an important profession! Patients are only going to suffer as a result of these changes. It's clear this hospital does not care how their patients are treated.
A "hospital" that can't even deliver babies should change its name to a clinic. Removing the obstetrics department is a big mistake.
Although I was treated in a friendly and courteous manner by the staff, and many seemed perfectly capable, some inconveniences arose that had me scratching my head. I also noticed several minor HIPAA violations, so that is something the staff should pay close attention to try and improve.
I would be willing to let the infamous director have a chance to explain why he appears incapable of running this organization well (I couldn't attend the town meetings) but everything I've heard about that man and his board, if true, should make it difficult for them to sleep peacefully at night. Haven't heard a single good thing about him since I moved into town, and some of what I've heard makes me feel like I've been launched back into the 1960s--especially the racial discrimination I've heard about. Shameful.
Aggorance and refusal to listen an an ER patient resulted in a completely laghauble, potentially dangerous and wrong diagnoses. Unless you're experiencing an urgent medical mergency go somewhere else.
ER staff were judgmental and rude, not to mention openly and loudly disclosing medical information in a room full of people.
The EMTs on the other hand were all respectful, patient and understanding.
Sturgis Hospital has decided to discontinue many things recently, including OB, respiratory, and others. They are leaving the community without much needed care. The CEO Rob Labarge and others on the hospital board are unable to properly run a hospital. They are unwilling to step down in order to help the community keep its hospital. In a town hall meeting LaBarge couldn’t even remember his own hospitals mission statement, nor could he justify a majority of his actions. Until the hospital board is removed, Sturgis Hospital will continue to struggle and will not be top choice for healthcare in this community.
