Shelby Baptist Medical Center is a Voluntary non-profit - Church Acute Care Hospitals located in Alabaster, Alabama. Emergency services are offered here, meaning that staff is available at all hours to... more address unexpected and life-threatening conditions.
Some of the nurses are great but overall I HATE this place. Our last two visits to the ER took hours. Both times I heard blood curdling screams from down the hall. Last night I heard a young girl crying... more out in pain. Dear doctors, they make this stuff called pain meds.
Today they told me Dad was transferred to another facility. After driving an hour in the opposite direction I find out he wasn’t discharged at all.
Chairs in the emergency room are hard plastic. Seems like at a minimum they could invest in a chair so that when family members wait they aren’t miserable.
I could go on and on, given that I have spent far more time in this hospital than I would like.
Don’t go here. I went in last night with numbness all through different parts of my body & dr crosshourn (i think i spelled it right) was SUPER “SWEET”! But not really genuine ... Ik myself what... more tests should be ran with the symptoms i had & nothing got done. Matter a fact he said he’s gonna give me meds to calm me down n that will work. I knew it would calm my nerves but the problems still remain. Shelby baptist in alabaster will let anything happen to you. No sense of urgency from any of the workers. Even the nurse was like it doesn’t sound like an allergic reaction so hopefully he will do some blood work and more test. & yeah nothing matter a fact he came in my room and left out b/c he said he had to take a phone call n would be back to talk more n the next person i seen was my nurse with discharge papers and a shot of Ativan.
The worse hospital. My son was rushed by ambulance and they put him in the waiting room. They say they provide health care as needed no matter if they aren't able to pay. They do treat you but they... more don't treat you as good of you don't have insurance. They did not do any kind of test. He was hurting in his neck and back from a wreck where a 18 wheeler got him and they diagnosed him with vertigo.
