I was seen by the hospital this evening due to spitting up blood and chronic cough. The staff were very friendly and very welcoming. The doctor that seen me was very nice and very thorough with everything... more regarding my care and explained everything in detail to me in a way that I could understand. The doctor made me feel comfortable during my visit and made sure I had everything I needed to ensure I got well before I drove back home, since I was from out of state.
I am very pleased with the care that I received and would highly recommend this hospital to anyone needing urgent or emergency care.
Thanks Florida Hospital for making me feel warm and welcomed during my visit and thank you for the care that you provided.
Very disappointed with ER twice this year, first going with my daughter broken finger, now with my mom broken shoulder.Waiting time was very long., nobody check on you in the room, pain management was... more poor for something like that, didn't see orthopedic specialist while at the hospital.And this was not at night, or weekend, so the surgeons should be available at the hospital in AM, that can give appropriate diagnosis, and if she need surgery or not.We was there since 7:00 till 11:30. ER looked empty.Forget about broken skin or skin tears.Nobody even saw them, and when we pointed them out, got a bandaid, not even clean the wounds before applying. Have to ask a nurse" what about tetanus shot", should this be offered and not asking for it? When we came home noticed that her 5th finger on the other hand is all purple, swollen,and painful, probably broken too, but nobody in the ER, doctor or nurse noticed , so much for patient assessment. Now we have to make a trip and see a surgeon. If you have a choice do not go to this Hospital.
The ER staff at this hospital can be hit or miss. I recently took my son to this ER due to him having shortness of breath, nausea, lack of appetite, and a fever (he was also seen for these same exact... more symptoms in April at the FLHWC ER). After 3-4 hours of waiting, we were sent home with an over the counter prescription for children's Tylenol and a $2000+ ER bill...The next day we saw his Pediatrician and she told us to go to St. Joseph's Children's Hospital as FLHWC has a tendency to misdiagnose or not diagnose children at all. At St. Joseph's Children's Hospital, they immediately saw us and they diagnosed him with asthma and pneunomia due to RSV. After a two day hospital stay, we were released. I am not saying that this hospital is bad, but if you have a medical emergency for your small children (10 and under), you may be better off taking them to a children's hospital.
