We are from out of town and currently in the ER. I have been in several ERs that has a much easier flow than here at Grand Strand Medical Center. My wife is in severe pain and have seen everyone other... more than a person that could help her pain. Owner says taking care of our patients is important. Owner why don't you come down to your ER and see for your self how your hospital takes care of a patient in pain. Thank you for letting me express my concerns with the functionality of your hospital. I am sure Joint Commission would want to hear about you hospital too.
I am sorry to say I find it very hard to even mark one star. I was on vacation down in Myrtle Beach and suffered a terrible burn. I was rushed in and yes put in a room but with people flying in and out... more not even sure if they where in the correct patients room. I had one nurse in the beginning that took my vitals and set me up that made me feel comfortable after she left the nightmare began.
I had a nurse that try to run and IV he couldn't get it in something popped off went onto the nasty dirty floor he picked it back up and capped it onto something connected to my arm and while that was happening blood was shooting out. Before any pain medicine went in another nurse doctor who ever know one even identified themselves to me he rubbed down my leg put a A and D ointment patch on told us that it was good for 17 days or so also wrote a prescription and said there is a 24hr pharmacy down the road to have it filled. When we arrived there guess what they had none of that prescription, I was also told that when i get home to check in with the doctor. I was handed discharge papers a nice nurse that did come in at the end had to help me get a uber because i had NO clue where. then after that know one was in sight we where put outside the hospital on a bench to wait. I woke up the next day and we drove home I was in awful pain and my leg was oozing yellow out and bleeding by the time I made it back to Raleigh I just wanted to sleep I felt nausea and sick so then we went immediately to the Dr. that when she said what in the world they should have transported you come to find out I had a fourth degree burn and I ended up with and infection and most of my leg cut out. I am now healing but am dealing with allot of aftermath that could have been prevented if I was just transported to unc immediately.
My dad had a stroke 8/11 and died there 8/24. The stroke consumed the entire left side of his brain so there was nothing they could do. While he was there my mom and I were treated like FAMILY. The Neuroscience... more ICU nurses were the ABSOLUTE BEST. The doctors were forthcoming, and sugar-coated nothing. We knew what dad was up against and so did they. They knew he was going so they went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make him as comfortable as possible. When he was moved to 2nd floor hospice our nurse Angie was OUTSTANDING and EXACTLY what we needed. When dad died they took care of everything. NOT ONCE were we rushed. NOT ONCE did they try to push us out of the hospital. Bad as it sounds, in hindsight this was the BEST place my dad could have been when he died. Thank you Grand Strand for making a sad situation at least bearable. And THANK YOU personally to Terry, Jessica, Shelby, Angie, Kayla and Drs. Durst and Duff. God Bless you all.
