I love Adventist Health Hospitals. I choose SJCH in Bakersfield over all other hospitals in the area because of how much they care, how thorough they are and how much they go above the call of service to make you comfortable. That said, the hospital in Tehachapi is a joke. Is this because Adventist health has not taken complete charge yet? Or is it because they haven't done an overhaul so the disrespect and disregard for a patients health and safety is allowed to continue? Whatever it is we will choose another hospital until they get things under control. The nurses stand around chatting with each other instead of checking on their patients, the doctors dismiss you or misdiagnose you because they are dismissive. I took my son in because his face was swollen, hot to the touch and looked like he had been in a brutal MMA fight (He hadn't, he just woke up that way) and the doctor said it was likely his asthma causing it so he gave him a breathing treatment. When that didn't work he said it was maybe the soap he was using and sent us home. As a nurse I was disgusted, but challenging them at Tehachapi hospital gets you no where. They still discharge. So I took him elsewhere and it turns out he had a serious infection and needed antibiotics. Which I suggested to the moron who saw my son. He shook his head and said something along the lines of he knows I am a worried mama but he is a trained physician. I would like to shove this worried mama's boot up that trained physicians.... Well you get the picture (in the last week)

Have always had any testing done here, now they no longer take my insurance, You would think County of Kern Blue Cross would be accepted in an area with so many Firefighter families and in Keen Country. Never even mentioned it to me when I scheduled or arrived. What good is a local hospital that isn’t serving the locals. When I was in last they were over run with non emergency clients from Cal City. Do they even contribute to the funding to have a hospital in Tehachapi? From the looks of them I doubt it! (4 months ago)

I’ve had 2 experiences with the ER and really have felt they were effective, efficient, kind and quick. (a month ago)

I don't think I've ever had a good experience here. Some of the nurses are nice and have good intentions, but I've also heard them lie saying that they checked on me, but it had been three hours since I had seen my nurse. I was in a bed in pain and waiting to see if I had an allergic reaction while the nurses were all huddled talking. More recently, I got charged for something I denied since I already got tested for the particular sickness. They proceeded to tell me, "everybody lies" and tested me for it though I told them it was negative a few days ago by someone who specializes in it. Sure enough, I got a $200 bill in the mail for the test I refused and now I can't get ahold of anyone to dispute it. I also can't tell you how many times my family has waited for this place; my brother got bit by a dog and it took them 8 hours just to see him. I went in there with a 104 F fever; after waiting for two hours, we overheard someone else say (who were waiting for 6 hours for a simple result) that they could leave and get receive the results in the morning. Then they gave me the wrong paperwork! I would not be so bitter because everyone makes mistakes and they're human, but this isn't just one visit. It's EVERY visit (I'm accident prone). I'll be driving anywhere else in an emergency even though I'm right up the road. (5 months ago)

Still send me out with a fever wouldn't give me Jack schitt for it horrible place better off going to Bakersfield are Lancaster's our your neighborhood drug dealer (2 weeks ago)
