This place is dangerous for infant kids! I took my 8 month child to this hospital and was shocked how unprofessional service was. It all started at the check in to emergency room. Nurse who was admitting... more us was trying to use an adult set of tools to take vital signs. After multiple unsuccessful attempts of measuring pulse and oxygen level with the finger probe she finally gave up and went to ask help. She was trying to put infant fit sensors onto my daughters arm and was doing many other violations of all possible admitting procedures. When we finally got into the room and we`ve been told that Dr. Cox will be taking care of us. After few minutes I was pretty much sure that this doctor has no clue on how to assess infant patients. She was focused on filling out paperwork instead of working with the patient. her supervisor Dr. Davis decided not to spend a single minute with the patient at all - he was on the phone and could not hang up even for a minute. All interventions that were proposed were highly invasive skipping any less invasive assessments completely. Drug dose was calculated inaccurately and without double check. Because of all that I refused any care and took my daughter to the other hospital. Please stay away from this place
If I could I would give 0 stars. I was in the er twice in 3 days and the treatment was horrible. The 1st day I was never given a room I was kept in the hallway. The Dr rushed through talking to me,... more decided I had sciatica, wrote a Rx for pain & muscle relaxers and sent me home. My pain got worse and ended up back in the er 48 hrs later. Again they tried to put me in the hallway. I complained & then put me in a room. The Dr came in long enough to put me on pain meds and order an MRI. When MRI results came in Dr Norton came in and was very abrupt with her answers and was "too busy " to answer any questions I had. After 2 very poor visits at best I would never go here again even if it was an emergency. Dr Norton specifically should never be allowed to interact with patients. She has obviously forgotten what it's like to be one!
I had an emergency due to lower right quad pain on the the 12th of September. The emergency room got me in quite quickly for how busy they were.
Nurses Liz and Mercedes were so kind and attentive... more and doctor Brunner was so professional and knowledgeable. Everyone I encountered had the same demeanor of caring and gentle concern.
They quickly found my problem and gave me an IV antibiotic. I thought I had appendicitis but turned out to be a kidney infection.
This is the "go to" hospital if you live or are visiting San Diego and need fast efficient medical care.❤️
