They helped me while suffering more then once. I ran without doctors orders. I became scared . Nobody is a robot , can't claim perfection. Big pharmacy is pushing drugs I feel should be banned. I'm mortified of doctors. They saved my life , just wish it was a perfect system by now. Seems to me like humanity is in a crisis. They saved me from bad health . I know my health will failing me again , hope something can be done again about it. I survived thanks to this hospital. Please keep saving lives . A place of business. I survived to write the note a, should be thankful of that much. This place makes me want to go back school. Unfortunately my memory is to low for that. They tried to save me ,with little resources they had . Can't blame anyone for human imperfections. Just shouldn't happen in a hospital. I've read many horrible things of what the hospital went though. They helped me . Please save my life if comes down to it. I had options because I could still walk . They didn't hurt me . I feel some of the team shouldn't be there . Unfortunately I have no power. The system is getting harder .They helped me survive or so I believe....... Please save my life again when the times comes. Thank you..

I recently went to Tuomey for the first time. After sitting in the E.R. for two hours, I decided to research the hospital online. I read the reviews and was shocked at the number of negative comments. I was also shocked at how long people said they had to wait. I thought maybe people were exaggerating. I thought wrong.

The E.R. waiting room didn't inspire confidence that I would be treated well. Two people were vomiting into bags. A heart patient with two stints came in complaining of severe chest pain and trouble breathing. She was made to sit there for hours like the rest of us. There were others who I thought should be treated immediately, but we all waited...and waited.

After waiting in the E.R. for six hours, I spoke to the woman at the desk to get an explanation and to tell her my condition was getting worse. Her explanation was less than satisfactory, but my complaint apparently got me bumped up on the waiting list. Shortly after, I was taken back to a room to wait for a doctor. A doctor arrived two hours later. His friendly demeanor was the only pleasant part of my experience. He had a nurse take a blood sample. I have a low body fat percentage, so my veins are easy to find and take samples from. I have never had someone screw up taking a blood sample from me......until I went to Tuomey. She thought she missed the vein, so she pulled out the needle to try again. Blood shot out of my arm like a fountain. My pants and the bed I was sitting on were spattered. She ultimately got a sample. I was treated and returned home. My trip to the E.R. lasted 10 hours.

I have one question for the hospital: How long does a person have to wait until you determine the wait is too long? There seems to be no limit.

I expect this kind of medical treatment in a third world country, but it's right here in Sumter. I recommend people go to Tuomey only if it is a life or death situation and you don't have time to travel elsewhere.

Sat in waiting room for over 3 hours with bleeding infant. Person behind us pukes and it has sat on the floor now for almost 30 minutes. A nurse just came by with paper towels. Still chunks and liquid on floor and chairs. Will not return to this ER.

2 hours after puking incident. Son is Still bleeding slowly after being here 4 hours now. Nurse gave me a gauze pad from an open (non sterile) box dipped in salen to put on his face. Every family that came with puke bags has been seen and another two individuals that arrived after us.

Don't bring your kids here unless you have to.

This is the worst ER I have ever been to! I waited in the waiting area for 6 plus hours! Then got told by one of the nurses because I was here 4 weeks prior my visit wasn’t as important. I’m 9 weeks pregnant and have been spotting blood and every one keeps saying it’s normal, but had I of been in New Jersey they would have given me answers to why I’ve been spotting for the past 4 weeks. Then when I was here 4 weeks ago I got a ultrasound and the dr didn’t even give me my results before the nurse was trying to discharge me. I had to read on my own when the nurse brought up my information that I had a cyst on my left ovary. Worst ER ever!

This is for SUMTER OB. Horrible horrible horrible. I am 17 weeks pregnant and I am swelling up in my warehouse job where I’m on my feet for 10 hours. Doing repetitive walking 3 hours at a time no stopping or sitting and the nurse have the nerve to compare our jobs. Sumter ob will not help have me accommodated because they said swelling is normal during pregnancy. The nurse suggested I wear compression socks for a week to see if it helps. My job is really strict which I keep telling her ! I don’t have a week to try and see if this will help. I have hourly quotas I have to meet at my job to keep my job ! All my job need is a freaking accommodation paper to put me in a different area at work and Sumter ob is acting so damn ignorant . I will be going to a better doctor.
