Very slow, no one to help getting my 85 year old mother out of the car either time I've brought her here. The guards just look out the window while I, in a sling, try to get her on to the wheel chair and... more inside. I've had to bring her to Springhill Memorial 2 times because of the location. Next time I'll call an ambulance and take her elsewhere. Once we got checked in, the process got even slower. They kept putting others (most were minor injuries not all) in to er rooms ahead of her (She had rapid heart rate and having a hard time breathing). On the bright side, the nurses and the Drs were very nice once we got to the back.
I went in Sunday with contractions. Even though I was scheduled for an repeated c section. From the time I walk in the ER, the labor and delivery and finally the OR. Every staff was absolutely the best... more to me, my boyfriend, guest and newborn. Doctor, Nurses, Room Service, House keeping and etc. The staff were friendly, smiling, helpful and beyond. I had an Excellent experience.
Staff was excellent until today. I was released two hours ago and yet still sitting in the room waiting for my paperwork while the nurse says she'll get to it. It wouldn't be so bad had she not known I... more was sick to my stomach. I can't even go take anything for it because I'm confined to this room until I get my paperwork.
