If I could give this review zero stars I would. The nerve of the Emergency Room staff, to treat a patient who is all alone, in a great deal of pain, to have a nurse come in to where my family member was... more to tell her that "You're being too loud, everyone can hear you, you need to stop". Whoever that nurse is, deserves to be fired---truly she has no bedside manor. Turns out that my family member had an untreated kidney stone, and the pain was excruciating. My relative didn't let the nurse get away with it, she made sure to tell her that she didn't like the way that nurse was treating her. No one should have to explain themselves when they are in pain and they need assistance. I have called the ER to complain, I also will be filing a formal complaint to make sure that this doesn't continue. This is the reputation that this emergency room has, snooty doctors, rude nurses that don't give a care in the world, and they all act like patients are faking. SHAME ON YOU ALL. I myself have been a patient there as well and they simply don't care about you at all. The events that transpired today in regards to my family member is the last straw. I don't recommend this hospital to ANYONE.
I am proud to be a member of Waldo County Hospital medical staff, and trust my colleagues implicitly. I work as a pediatrician at Belfast Pediatrics, an independent practice. I have also had to use the... more Emergency Room myself on a few occasions and found the care to be excellent and thorough despite very difficult circumstances. The place keeps winning awards for 'best small hospital,' it's a gem of a resource in tiny Belfast.
