Some of the student nurses displayed better customer service than the other student nurses on duty. Don't know what the issue is but understand patients did not ask to be here at the hospital nor did they ever think you would be their caretaker. If you don't have a heart to deal with the sick, please find another career. This may be your love one in the same position one day!!!!! (3 months ago)

Do not go to this hospital. I went to the ER the other day and I should've went on to UMC but I was in so much pain and heard they had changed the place and it wasn't like it was before so I gave it a chance. Wrong. It was a horrible visit from the beginning. The guy at the front desk who initially takes your information was extremely rude when I was explaining my problem. I got to my room and my bathroom was extremely dirty. The nurse did not seem to know what she was doing at all when taking my blood and had blood running all down my arm and left two big bruises on my arm. I had to have an ultrasound done and the "lady" who did it seemed like she did not know what she was doing nor cared that she was hurting me by pressing down so hard on my sides. Now I understand they have to push down to get the image but she was passing extremely hard. Then when she was done she wiped half the gel off, threw the towel on the floor and said you done get up. I asked for a towel to get the rest of the gel off and she said I already did that. I had to show her the gel on my hand from my stomach. She would also tell me "hold your breath" then forget to tell me when I could breathe!! I'm thinking lady what is wrong with you. Then the doctor misdiagnosed me. I didn't think his diagnosis was correct so I went to see my doctor during regular hours the next day and he said something totally different. Don't waste your time and money here. (a month ago)

Treated good at the hospital but not at the jms burn center uncaring and slow. (3 weeks ago)

I carry a card in my wallet: “Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES am I to be taken to any Merit facility “. Enough said? (a month ago)

Came by ambulance, ER was great, professional and prompt. Nurses were sweet with good bedside manor. ER Dr Flowers was awsome, Ana was great. They made you feel like they cared. When I ended up being admitted it was all down hill from there! Bedside manor was horrible! Nurses including the head nurse Krystal or Crystal, not sure how she spells her name. She was terrible. They make you feel like they could care less and just there to draw a paycheck. I went to Merit because the paramedics said Merit had been taken over by University doctors and it was good there now but will never ever go there again. The vibe is negative among most of the nurses and it's a shame. They appear to take no pride in their important roles to society as nurses. (7 months ago)
