Don't ever go to that er!! What a joke. Took my child there for severe abdominal pain and throwing up. Waited 4 hours!!!! All they did was take blood never gave them anything for pain or ruled out... more appendicitis. Gave us a script for zofran and wanted to give fluids but after 4 hours said forget it! Went to Navicent Health ER In 2 hours Did X-ray immediately, took blood gave fluids and we were out in 2 hours!! Will never take my child to Houston Er again!
Had to return the next day after surgery due to surgery complications and they made me wait outside in the stretcher in the hallway for an hour before finally putting me into a room that was dirty. Just... more didn't seem professional or clean. Haven't heard a lot of good things from other people either.
The friendly and caring nurses in the ER during our late visit Friday night were about the only thing good about this Emergency department. My son saw the Nurse Practitioner in a ER triage room, who put... more in for some X-rays and blood work and then LEFT, leaving us sitting in the waiting room waiting for nothing. So after waiting an extra 2 hours, my son had to be reexamined by the doctor in order to be given antibiotics. In hind sight, even though we were very concerned with the spider bite and swelling, it could have waited for an Urgent Care or After Hours appt. the following morning. Big thanks to the desk nurses for pushing things along for us because who knows how long we'd have been there without their help.
My advise is if you aren't dying, bleeding out and/or in critical condition, avoid the ER. So many people go there for things the Urgent Care or a doctor's office can see during normal hours. I wish we would have waited til morning but hindsight is 20/20.
If you have no choice but to go to this ER, be ready to wait-- hours on end. They will ultimately help you, but like I said, unless you're dying, bleeding out or in critical condition, you will be pushed to the side and sit in the waiting room for 4-8 hours.
