feedback about The Mcdowell Hospital
My son broke his arm on a boy scout hike at Mount Mitchell, the rangers there referred us to the mission hospital in Marion NC for treatment. Being from Tennessee, this is the first time I have ever been there, highly professional, and caring staff, they made a bad situation feel much better.
Wish I could give this place 0 stars. Not enough doctors on staff for the patient load. What was the point of building a newer, bigger hospital if they do not have the means to staff it??? Waited 5 and a half hours for 7 stitches and 5 staples on my 11 month old after she spent the last half of that wait screaming in pain. Not to mention it only took the Doctor 16 minutes to do the sutures so why should it have taken FIVE AND A HALF HOURS. They should have closed this hospital down instead of building a new one.
If I could give zero stars, I would. My son presented to Urgent Care with a wound he got while kayaking. No flush and no antibiotics given - the attending just super glued it shut. Next day, my son developed fever and vomiting from the infection that had set in. He returned to the ER and that visit was ok with two antibiotics prescribed. The next day, we tried to get his lab results to know if the antibiotics prescribed were the correct ones and NO one would help. At ALL. My son called, his primary care physician called, his primary care physician offered his fax number, my son offered to drive back to the facility to get the results in person and each attempt to get the results was answered with: "Can't do that - HIPAA." The place is literally staffed with people unwilling to do their jobs. Update: My son's arm is worse & the hospital still won't give us the results of his lab tests. He is driving to Asheville rather than return to this place.
Every single person in building #3 was excellent today! Very helpful, knowledgeable and caring. Love Doctor Patel and all the O.R people were the best! Thankful for them all.
The best hospital in the upstate all of the staff are very very helpful and very very nice they took very very awesome care of me every time I’ve been
