Got here at 11.40pm. ER staff were nice and Dr Green did a CT scan and diagnosed my husband with an appendicitis. This by 3am he had a room and we were told dr Mullis would be here to start the appendectomy... more ASAP (a couple of hrs) . 7 hrs later no Dr and none of the nurses can or will get us an ETA for when he will get here or the surgery. At 8am when I asked she said he's " usually here earlier but may not get in till noon". So here we wait hoping his appendix doesn't burst before then. It's now 10:15 and we still know nothing.
TLDR ER experience was pretty good. Waiting for the emergency surgery is currently a long, nerve wracking and aggravating process.
I don't know about any other areas of the hospital but the joint replacement center is the BEST. Dr Hanby is excellent. The nurses and aides were great. Craig, Ed and Sydney are excellent nurses. Amelia... more and Amber excellent aides. Another night nurse we met , can't remember name but she introduced and helped us with boot camp info. Derek with lab was awesome. I am an RN and hard to impress with care but I am IMPRESSED. thank you
Lack of concern that I was in excruciating pain. Go say if I slowed my breathing I'd be ok. I've been here twice once for a blood clot that they misdiagnosed and now this and I'm still in pain. Northwest... more had to correctly diagnose me each time.
