Waiting time is insane. Too small an emergency room to actually count as such. Should be considered an urgent care at best. My mother was having serious complications from a previous surgery and needed immediate attention and while I understand that a small amount of staff can only do so much- this was ridiculous. They had her sitting in the waiting room with some oxygen- when her stats were at 88. No monitoring, no bothering on checking on her. I had to try to help my 54 year old mother to the bathroom with a wheelchair and a thing of oxygen without any help- the whole experience was hell. Ended up taking her out of the waiting room and bringing her to Memorial. Will never voluntarily go here again. Nice phlebotomist tho. (2 months ago)

My father has been in this hospital 4 times now.The care here is fabulous! Every employee that come into his room is polite professional and caring.Our family is so blessed to have them here for our Dad (a month ago)

Emergency Room is decent. Kind of out dated. Intake staff is good. Drs are just average. Nurses need to shape up. On 1/24/2018, RN Lisa was absolutely rude, uncaring, and very inconsiderate. When asked for the diagnosis and clarification on the illness my wife had, she was set off. Like it was beneath her to clarify a diagnosis. She angrily pointed to paper work saying it’s all there read it(mind you we had yet to be told the diagnosis by a Dr or a nurse). Hostility and unkindness have zero place in a hospital setting. Some people should not be in the industry, and she is one of them. Nursing is all about caring and compassion in which she does not hold the ability to do either. (4 months ago)

I haven’t had the time or energy to post a review for a while. I took my mother to the Heart Hospital because she was in such excruciating pain that she was vomiting. This went on for days before I convinced her to go to the hospital. She sat in the emergency room waiting area for six hours nearly crying. Upon heading back, the doctor took an X-ray said nothing was broken and shipped her out. The next day, we drove her all the way to Henry Mayo Hospital in Valencia. She had to have emergency spinal surgery! The doctors had to remove her vertebrae and replace it with a titanium one immediately before her vertebrae snapped the nerves! It was a very horrible experience because she was sent home in pain without resolution. (3 months ago)

The absolute WORST E.R. in all of Kern County. I wouldn’t even recommend to my worst enemy. Extremely incompetent and rude all the way around. No compassion whatsoever from anyone working here. The only thing they hurry up and do is take your money. After waiting for over 4 hours in an EMPTY waiting in excruciating pain nonetheless, I asked for my copay back to go somewhere else to receive proper treatment and they said sorry there’s nothing we can do. You can try calling the billing department when they open. So basically I have to pay a large copay to sit in pain in an empty waiting room for over 4 hours, to be talked down to by a rude incompetent nurse, and listen to the news. DO NOT COME HERE. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. You will regret it. (6 months ago)
