It's a small community hospital. They have remodeled and added some excellent equipment. But being a small place, if it's something serious they can get you stabilized and have paramedics or a helicopter get you to where you need to be. The ED has quick service, parking is good.
If I could give it a negative 5 I would just based on the experience my Husband had in the ER last night.
He has history of blood clots in his legs So starting New Years. Day he started experiencing. Severe pain in his right leg and had no pulse at all in his right foot. We took him to the ER. His blood pressure was extremely high so his nurse ( who Btw. Was great) put him on an EKG. When the Dr came in very rudely and yelled that he didn't need that!
So the Dr look briefly at me husband foot. And was gonna send him home because she said she couldn't do anything my son asked her about his pain in his groan. And she rolled her eyes and said now you have another problem! Granted he presented with this problem!!!!__
So in my opinion if you ever have to use. This ER. DON'T!!
Showed up with a couple broken bones and the staff was so kind and knowledgeable. You could easily see a culture of empathy. Great experience.
Honestly UMMC doesn't even deserve one star. I am so beyond mad right now. My Fiance has had a couple back surgeries in the past, well tonight (10/13/18) he goes in for back pain. He cannot even walk upright, I had to dress him before we went into the hospital which is challenging for me (being 7 months pregnant). When we get there we got right in, but when the doctor came into the room he listened to what we had to say and all he did was say it was to late for an MRI and an X-Ray would be useless. We were in the hospital room for maybe a half hour and all they did for him was proscribe him a muscle relaxer and Motrin 600.. That isn't going to solve his back issue. We went to EMERGENCY ROOM for a reason and they just sent him home in just as much pain as he walk in with.. What is the point of this hospital if they aren't going to actual treat/ fix their patients.. Now tomorrow when its not late we have to drive to Rochester for him to get looked at. Something needs to be done, this is not the first time we have had an issue here....
If I could give them a negative 5 star rating, I would!
