I've had to go in to the ER several times for myself and family over the past few years, and every experience has been downright awful. You can never get someone to answer at the nurses station, you'll... more wait 6+ hours in the ER to be seen, and you will probably get a wrong diagnosis when you finally do see someone.
I thought with the new building and a plethora of new staff that things would get better, but they appear to have gotten worse. Unfortunately, this is the only major hospital in the Yuba/Sutter area, and you'll drive at least 45 minutes to find another one. Avoid this hospital unless it is an absolute life-saving emergency, and even then, plan on dying.
Because I know how this dump works I thought I'd try "Online ED Checkin" feature so I didn't drive there to sit for hours. Hasn't worked all day or night. I called to see why, was told if it isn't working... more it's because all time slots have been booked for the next twelve hours. Plus time made for walk-ins. This place even sucks online!!
This is by far the worst experience that we have had in a hospital ever. The nurses were good at caring for my wife but seemed to be reserved and maybe a little embarrassed about my comments about the... more room. The rooms are not big enough for 2 patients, visitors, computer for both patients and the rest of the staff that are in and out at all times of the day. The floor is nasty and housekeeping checked on the room one time in 4 days. My wife had to use the portable toilet next to her bed (Go LYTELY treatment) for everyone to see and hear. She was basically on her own during this time. Staff was kind and caring but the room was terrible.
