We recently had out little girl here and the staff was fantastic!!! Everyone was very attentive and was very polite. We didn't meet a negative person through our entire stay, and plan to use this hospital... more again if we have more children.
I recently deliver my second baby at Piedmont Newnan, and to be quiet frankly, I had a very nice experience to say the least. From the front desk all the way to the delivery room,... more everyone was helpful. I have to say that I arrived around 2am, and of course, people are tired and sleepy, but I can tell they did their best. I had my first child at Northside Atlanta, and it's a much rather busier hospital and smaller rooms but staff was nice for the most part. Good overall ☺
worst emergency room i have ever been to. they give everyone an iv before you see a doctor. they don't even know if you need an iv or not but they charge $300 for the needle. I have never seen an emergency... more room routinely give IV's to every patient. the staff is unprofessional and impatient. It appears that the nursing staff I made of people with very little experience.
getting an IV placed in one try is easy on a patient with good veins, but on a patient with crappy veins it can require multiple attempts. That just multiplies all of the above downsides (risk of complications, patient pain, time and efficiency, expense). Why are they doing this to every patient routinely? There can only be one reason, they want the money. They are letting people sit there for 6 hours, just what I saw, with an IV when they didn't know if the IV was necessary. People are under stress when they go to the ER and this makes it worse. Once you have an IV, you are committed to stay, instead of leaving to go to another Emergency center and you are committed to pay for the IV when you may not have needed it the first place. This is a money making unethical practice!
