Brought my son to the ER over the weekend because he had a bright red rash and high temperature that wouldn't go away. The nurses were great, but the doctor kept making fun of my sons autism. He was very... more rude. I've always had problems at this hospital, with the doctors and nurses. It's sad when you have to travel out of town to get a good hospital. We have to go all the way to Jasper. So won't be going back for anything.
This Hospital is from another era. While the ER Nurse was helpful, The Dr was not. One would think that upon receiving a patient in ER the first thing a Dr would do would be to ASK what happened to the... more patient and then triage from there. No, Not the Dr at this ER on May 19th. Despite the fact that the patient had been knocked out as well as an obvious fracture, the Dr seemed to care less that the patient had all the signs of a concussion, could not stand without dizziness or feeling sick. Of the hours there, 5 minutes with the Dr, resulted in a sling for a broken clavivle and being sent home despite not being able to walk on own. A family member had to retrieve a wheelchair to take patient out. On top of that, Dr refused to allow patient or representative to visibly view the films of fracture and the Hospital does not have the ability for Patients to view their records electronically. In order to get a copy of your records one must physically return to the hospital with a form and then wait several days. SMDH. For one who needs those films/records to take to a specialist asap, it simply is not possible with this hospital. I do not recommend this hospital. THE 2 STARS given are explicitly for the ER nurse who attempted to provide decent care under the constraints of her position.
Took my 13yr old daughter in February with a severely bruised wrist and fingers. Was told that it was a sprain even with a X-ray. 4 days later it was still swelling. Turns out it was broke. The nurses... more are very nice but the lack of common knowledge by the "doctor" was ridiculous!
