My Daughter recently had a baby at Rice Memorial Hospital. The nurses were exceptionally friendly and professional. The food in the cafeteria was very good and inexpensive. What struck me most was that... more the entire facility was very clean and well maintained without being overly fancy. You don't need a lot of marble and spendy artwork to be a very good hospital!
My son is a student at Ridgewater College and had to go to the ER last night because he was sick to his stomach and vomited up some blood after eating. The ER was totally useless and incompetent. They... more didn't even tell him the results of the tests they did on him before they discharged him! He's coming home tonight and going to the family doc tomorrow.
The ER wasn't busy; staff members were sitting around goofing off and laughing and were very rude to my son and his friend. The doctor basically dismissed his symptoms. I see why this hospital has a 2.1 rating. Stay away! You will receive very poor healthcare here. Working on contacting the local press/news station to report the incident and will complain to the State oversight agency.
*MUST READ* I have NEVER in my life been so appalled at a hospital facility. I find out my cousin was neglected for 6+ hours of being admitted into the hospital. No one check in on him. He was DRENCHED... more in his own sweat and saliva (due to his state he obviously needed the care from someone), he had a high fever and was not offered food or drinks. My family members contacted all the people they needed to and received NO SYMPATHY. No explanation. Not anything other than pure rudeness from even a supervisor. They did not give any further explanation. No “follow up investigations” on who was in charge that night. Told us we would have to call back this and that. WHEN IT IS THEIR JOB to solve the issue and report to whoever they need to report to, to make sure patients are getting the EFFICIENT care they need. We have read the reviews of this place and it has lost all of our trust in a hospital. I am deeply in shock.
