Not only did they save my daughter's life but they took exceptional care of her. The entire staff go above and beyond their job requirements. There is no way I would take my children to any other hospital.

This is a great hospital. Staff is friendly and they are a little over bearing with security, but I like that especially when it comes to kids. My son had teeth cut out and caps placed on, the staff was great about answering questions and great about having extra clothes on hand just in case theres an accident.

This used to be a decent place but the last few times we've taken my son, it's frankly sucked. Just last night we took him in because he had a rectal fever of 103, he was inconsolable, and had very labored/ grunting breathing. When we got there his fever was some how magically 100 by their reading, despite the fact he was so hot I was sweating holding him and we hadn't given him any meds prior to the visit. He threw up once from crying, that was it. They gave him zofran..nothing for fever...but zofran..from throwing up by crying The doctor then proceeded to tell me he was breathing faster due to his fever...but he WASN'T breathing FASTER. He had LABORED slow breathing..this also didn't tell me why he had the fever to begin with. So then she tells us it's an upper respiratory infection..No cough, mucus, not even a runny nose and his chest sounded clear as a bell..but he had a respiratory infection..right. So then we sat an additional 20 minutes for 2 discharge papers. The nurse comes in and says they're treating him for a VIRUS and they're send him home with ZOFRAN when nausea isn't even a symptom he's having! So basically we were told URI, Virus and treated for nausea. I'm no doctor but my kid's has repository infections and this wasn't one.

We go the children's clinic four times a year with two diabetic kids. We are treated as good as gold every time. Love this place and the staff is always wonderful.

Have been taking my son her for that last 3 years for his heart condition. The staff is always polite, with an up lifting environment, even when facing difficulty. I would recommend to anyone with children.

An absolutely appalling organization to be involved with as an employee. It is small, so there is little accountability to keep the cliques and circus of drama and back-stabbing in check. With larger organizations like Covenant there are several layers of accountability to keep the shenanigans under control; not so here. As a patient, expect to be talked about and ridiculed by the uncaring staff. As an employee, expect to be talked about and ridiculed by the uncaring staff. Workplace hostility at its finest - run from this laughable institution and don't look back.

Dear ETCH, A MESSAGE TO Operating Room MANAGEMENT: You have created an absolutely appalling HOSTILE work environment. Not only have you created this environment, you continue to harbor it. The bullying that goes on between senior employees and new employees is absolutely terrible. What's more? Those that will stand up against it are not taken seriously and then reprimanded. You need to deal with this. The anxiety you create follows your employees home. This affects every aspect of our lives. We are calling on Human Resources to launch a full scale investigation. How many amazing employees are you going to have to lose before you WAKE UP? We are now speaking up. Your nurse managers may be extremely good nurses, but when you promote them, they become terrible managers. Not everyone is capable of managing affectively. Do a better job training your nurses. Remove your current OR nurse management and find efficient managers. We will not go away and we will not back down! The Joint Commission and OSHA both have specific policies that state bullying amongst staff hinders patient safety. DEAL WITH THIS. Sincerely,

Today is National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day. Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness. Learn to spot the signs that your child may benefit from seeing a therapist in this article:

Today is a great day to learn about... hair, skin and nails! No really, it's fascinating stuff. For instance, did you know that hair is actually a modified type of skin? Cool, right?? If you're as excited as we are to learn about sebaceous glands and subcutaneous tissue, then we've got the article for you: http://bit.ly/1X4NtJM

May the 4th be with you! Stormtroopers patrolled the halls of East Tennessee Children's Hospital and engaged in lightsaber battles with some of our patients. Special thanks to members of the 501st Legion for this special Star Wars surprise.
