I came into your ER tonight as directed by the on call surgeon after having surgery yesterday and being in major pain. Not pain due to surgery but pain to where I could not breath it was hurting so bad. Not once did a nurse check on me. Not once was I given anything for pain. A chest X-ray was done and a breathing treatment was given. I was told that I needed to use heat to help the pain but they were going to treat the bladder infection I had (that was not why I came in!!!). Nurse rushed in there then to get me out. So not only was I not helped and still going home in severe pain even after I was told to go there but I felt like a dog. I’ll NEVER step foot in your hospital ever again. Your nursing staff doesn’t care about patients. They care about rushing to the Subway in the building to get their salad before they close. (a month ago)

So got here at 7:05 for a 7:30 colonoscopy for wife that he had pre-registered for. She was all prepped to go under. When I asked, was they would take her in 7:30 as scheduled and be out by 8:30. At 8:15, I overheard someone say, “why is this 7:30 still here?”. Then I heard a response, “because she was late” WE WERE NOT LATE. At 8:26, I came and asked why were were still waiting. Nurse says, “because she came in late at 7:28”. Finally they took her in at 8:30. In the overall scheme of things, this is not a big deal. But, if you’re behind schedule for whatever reason, say so. Don’t (incorrectly) blame someone else instead. To her credit, the nurse did recheck the time we arrived and apologized for her mistake. (in the last week)

2 visits so far. Both outstanding. Very knowledgeable and compassionate staff. Efficient, thorough. Very short waiting times. 😊 (a month ago)

I went to visit a relative and ask the nurse standing at the nurses station if she could confirm the room number after giving her the patient name and room number and her response to me was "no I can't, I sure can't " and she walked off. Her response and lack of inability to help me are unacceptable. I was really shocked that someone would have that kind of attitude. (a month ago)

They are very slow came in for a chemical burn that I couldn’t control at home. There was no nurses that came to see me nor doctor i same for 2 hours until I decided to leave. Came all the way Birmingham to Bessemer which means i was burning for at least 3 hours I will never go back again! (a month ago)
