My wife was having issues with dizziness and pressure/pain in her head which was now affecting her vision. So being life, limb, or eyesight, I took her to the ER instead of waiting to get a doctor appointment.... more After sitting in the waiting room for 5 hours she still had not been seen by anyone, we left.
I realize after spending that much time in the waiting room that 95% of the people that come to the ER, do not have an actual emergency. It's things that could wait for a doctor appointment or they just don't have insurance. Technically my wife fell into this category, however with the problems affecting her vision, we didn't want to mess around and wait.
Regardless, this lack of service is unacceptable. Especially from a hospital that is widely regarded (or used to be) as a premier hospital. This place is a joke.
This Hospital's ER has to be one of the worst that I've ever been to in my entire life first waited 6 hours for my partner to be seen then had to wait another 2 hours just to have them taken to a room... more after he was already placed in a hallway then after that and if it weren't for me saying anything to the nurses nothing had been done he finally got an exam for the issue that he had come in for just to be told that he had to wait for four more exams and then to have a CT scan still here and it's almost been 12 hours that's right I came in at 6:45 p.m. and it is now 6:45 a.m. please make sure that if you ever bring a loved one here that you do care enough about them to go to a different hospital because bring them here is an absolute joke these people know nothing of what they are doing in the medical profession nor how to treat individuals let alone to make sure that their care is well provided for
Please go elsewhere. You would have better luck at Lebanon hospital. Went here because I was unable to walk because of my back. They could care less. I waited over 3 hours just to be ignored and given... more fluids due to dehydration and an aleve injection for pain. I didn't want pain medicine I wanted something to take down the swelling because I couldn't breathe. Again they did nothing. Will never return, it wasn't inviting at all inside, felt like a dungeon and they were so unorganized and privacy for patients was horrible. They were so loud with asking patients questions about personal information and wouldn't close curtains. What a joke. Milton Hershey would be appalled.
