My niece went to the ER last night with her 3yo daughter. It was 330 in the morning and she had hives all over her. She waited for hours only to be told by 2 ER doctors they did not know what it was and... more sent her home. Broke her fever and gave her Motrin only! I’m an EMT/MA and have worked on the ambulance and in the ER for 22 years. My doctors would have NEVER sent her home. They would have sent her to Wolfsons or another pediatric hospital. No prednisone no Benadryl. And you DONT know what it is. What a liability on the doctors for sending her home. What if she would have went into anaphylactic shock. Would have been all on them. Hopefully they look into the two so called doctors. She had to pay a huge copay AND a visit to the pediatrician today who diagnosed it.
The only problem I have had at Flagler Hospital is dealing with Virginia Farrell in Social Services. She is rude, abrupt, demanding, demeaning, defiant, intimidating (to some), loud, oppositional, and... more not helpful whatsoever. Even when you give her facts and ask for a compromise in scheduling follow-up care, she refuses to listen and insists on "having her way." She tells you what she wants done and dismisses you abruptly if you try to question her. The other Social Workers I have interacted with are professional and willing to attempt to accommodate the needs of the patient. Ms. Farrell does not belong in a position where dealing with the follow-up care of a patient is as important as the inpatient care. I especially cringe when I think of the elderly patients without a support system to advocate for them, being discharged by this Social Worker. She is in need of serious re-training or dismissal.
There was no wait when I arrived. Everyone was so very friendly and funny. The nurses were awesome. The nurse I had, took his time looking for the vein and made sure like 15 times that he was right. I... more was impressed. All my questions were answers. The place is very clean and organized. Y'all wasn't acting like a circus chasing each other's tails like a hospital I have been to. Flagler is the best hospital in my opinion.
