I've been a regular patient here for three and a half years. I spend 90% of my time here. I have to say, the nursing staff is WONDERFUL. I've only had issues with 2 nurses out of the thirty or forty I've had dealings with. ER takes a long time sometimes, yes. It's usually not a problem with nurses or staff, but with the doctors. The only reason I rate it at 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the doctors. Out of the ten or fifteen I've seen, only four are any good. Most of the doctors do things like changing meds without discussing it with the patient, not communicating what they're doing or why they're doing it, not answering questions or not offering to look up answers to things they don't know, or just plain brushing off my questions and concerns like they don't matter. Luckily, most of the nursing staff WILL answer my questions or help me find answers. It's not a BAD hospital, just don't expect much communication from most of the doctors.

Mom was there w/copd lung disease. They never cleaned her room. They sent her home way too early. Food was terrible. Sent her home w/blisters on her lips and in her nose w/out any meds. And no inhaler for a woman who can not breath. I will not take my mother there ever again.

I went into ER one night - was attended to promptly and by skilled staff and physician. Very satisfied.

As Nancy would say, "Just say no" , 4 house for 8 stitches, and when we got there, there was no one else in the waiting room. took over an hour for triage to ask what's wrong, another hour for a nurse to tell us the doctor will see you shortly, and another hour for him to make his appearance.

Of course, an entire hospital's worth cannot be judge on the basis of a few people, be they good experiences or bad. As to the hospital's healing abilities, I can't say. I can say the volunteers are wonderful. My issue is with communication and phone skills. I've been hung up upon twice. I have tried to get not care to the patient but some sort of regular interaction between nursing staff and loved ones and that is where the break down begins. I understand what terminal means. I understand and do not expect a reversal or insta-cure. But I do expect a certain level of humanity regarding information to the family as they gather around a deathbed. I understand there may be no new information regarding the patient, but why not check in on the family. Tell them what their loved one is experiencing. Reassure them. Help them through this. Based upon the lack of communication in this area I can say that where "customer service" is concerned, they are in need of a staff-wide refresher. So, as you can see, this is not a slam on the abilities of the facility, more on the lack of interaction I witnessed and experienced. And, again, a handful of people does not make or break a reputation. But it certainly can damage it. I hope I am never in a situation that would lead me to any level of care with this hospital.
