Well... it's a hospital. At least we have one! Many places aren't so fortunate. However; not the place you'd want to go if you were dying. Or, needed treatment that required anything other than a bandaid... more and a lecture from weird doctors. I did have my youngest son at this hospital, and it was great considering how...low grade the hospital is. Loved my OB! She was excellent. She did my tubal ligation, also. Her and the anesthesiologist were excellent! But, they do not have the technology to handle really anything if it goes wrong. I recommend going to a hospital with a NICU if you think you're experiencing complications. So, having babies there is doable. But the emergency room? It's... I usually try to go anywhere locally but here. There's a doctor who was all "arg I was a doctor in war so suck this up!" Like...were soldiers or something. He once stuck a needle in my gums and told me if I didn't want to die not to move... which made me cry and freak out but I couldn't do anything but freak out inside because well...he said he'd kill me basically. So...yeah.
It saddens me that some members of our community don't see all the hard work that goes into our hospital and how hard the staff work at making their experience as pleasant as possible. For one, we are... more a small community and are very lucky to even have a hospital in out county where at least if someone is critical, they can be transferred or flown to a higher level hospital. More than a few counties surrounding Richland country do not have this luxury. The doctors and nurses work 12-24 hour shifts and spend a lot of time away from their families to ensure that yours are taken care of and a lot of the time they do so even though the general public do not reciprocate the respect or kindness that these medical professionals deserve. I would trust any department here with my care.
