First off I wish there was way to rate this hospital a flat out ZERO..the staff was very unprofessional! the “nurse practitioner” that my child saw was unprofessional and rude as hell.! She basically... more told me “there was nothing that she could do for my child even tho she said he had a respiratory infection,fever,running nose,and diarrhea”...she stated that’s it’s not her responsibility to take care of my child!...secondly this same “nurse Practitioner” stated that she was there for her mortgage...what did that have to do with me asking about my child’s health I still haven’t figured that part out yet? I was told by one nurse that my child came in with a fever, but the nurse practitioner said he didn’t...they were not on the same accord they were literally digging through paper work trying to see who was correct I wouldn’t recommend this damn hospital for the family dog
The only reason it has a 1 star is other wise it wouldn't let me review .... this hospital is one of the worst hospitals you could bring your baby! The doctors do NOT care for your child and will brush... more you off like there is no problem. I had to bring my baby boy to the emergency room because his belly button wasn't drying so one of the student doctors put silver nitrate while a certified doctor looked on. The student doctor ended up putting it all over his belly, burning him in the process. At that moment his belly looked normal. The next boring his whole belly was gray and there was thick white discharge coming out, so I ended up taking him to the emergency room again by the time I got there he had blisters all over his tummy. We waited 4 hours to be seen just to be told it was normal and that "it happens all the time". When we got home all the blisters busted and the next day again his whole belly was black. When we went once again to emergency room they told me it was fine and that there was nothing wrong! I had to actually threaten the doctor I was going to call my atterney before they took it serious and gave it another look before admitting him. We ended up having to be admitted in the hospital for 4 nights due to the student doctor burning his whole belly and giving him an infection. If the doctors would've tooken everything serious he wouldn't have gotten an infection or burned! These student doctors have absolutely no idea what they are doing! Please do not go to this hospital for the safety of your baby!
