Don't ever let your family member come here. A nurse literally watched over as security assaulted me and when I filed a complaint they told me it was my fault and would not stop harassing me afterward.... more This is a hospital ran by sociopaths.
Since they blamed me for the incident I'm reporting here. I come in with a severely bruised face from the mental health center across the parking lot. I ask for a dark place to sit. The nurse calls me... more a "hoodrat" when I started crying and sat down in distress. So she calls the security who proceeds to assault me, leaving multiple bruises across my body. They threw me into a busy street and one yelled "Dont ever let me fucking catch me on this property again!" And that's the story of me trying to get help at Kern Medical center. They are unprofessional, will cover for their employees who commit crimes against patients, and treat their patients very coldly. I swear these positive reviews are paid for. Always pay attention to the negative. I'm not from town but literally every local I met told me to avoid this hospital. And now, as a person with ptsd already, I was a victim of another crime I was blamed for.
My dad was airlifted to this hospital 2 and a half weeks ago. This facility is the worst place you could ever leave a loved one. The entire place is crawling with transients. The building is disgusting.... more The medical staff is below par also. With my daughter fighting cancer I have a lot of experience inside of hospitals. I wouldn't send my enemy to Kern Medical. The final straw was my dad has Kaiser and Kaiser wanted my dad at a Kaiser facility. Last night he was transferred to San Joaquin community hospital and Kern Medical thought it would be ok NOT to call my brother or I and let us know that he has been transferred. I give Kern Medical ZERO stars.
