If I could give them none I would. My 16 yr old son was injured while on vacation. Their arrogance and lack or knowledge almost cost my son his leg. They held him hostage for 9 days refusing to let him... more be transferred to another hospital providing virtually nothing for pain and infection, instead saying he was being difficult. I was verbally assaulted almost everyday I was there for questioning them. Threatened to have removed by the police for speaking for my minor son. By the time I was able to have him transferred to a Boston Hospital His infection threatened amputation of his leg. To add to their incompetency they also missed a Major concussion and broken arm (keep in mind they had 9 days to find this he had all the classic signs) Because of their lack of care my son spent an additional 31/2 months in the Hospital forced to endure 8 additional surgeries. Then to rehab for a month. All while constantly fighting infection so bad he required a pic line for 9 months. Even after his release for IV meds. And still will require more.
You are better with a witch doctor and some bactine it's more than you'll get there.
The rn named Caleb is very disrespectful towards patients. My friend severely hurt her foot and was being very rude to her. While she's in pain asking him to stop for a moment he refused. And was yanking... more on her foot, as she's balling and freaking out in pain. Then she asks to speak to the doctor and rudely demands her that she needs to inform him. Overall very disappointed in this visit
