Location and Directions


With the worst pain in my life, I was not content to be patient 36 at the 18-bed ER in DuBois. The triage nurse was apathetic and refused to call Brookville ER to check their availability (they cited "federal regulations" - Total BS). In the middle of a thunderstorm, my spouse drive me to Brookville ER, and before she could park the car, I was in an ER bed. A NP and Physician saw me immediately. Within the first hour, I was evaluated at bedside, scanned, given the results, and scheduled for a procedure the next morning. I was admitted to a hospital room by hour 3. By that hour, I probably would not have been seen in DuBois. I can't say enough about how well the doctors, nurses, and aides treated us in Brookville. They were always running, in part, because they have no unit secretary or transportation personnel. But, they always met our needs and from what I heard in the halls, all the others patients sounded satisfied. I was in the hospital several days, and cared for very well. Brookville Hospital may not have the fancy electronics and decoration of the hospital in DuBois, but they have heart, experience, and expertise which are much more important when you need help in an emergency.

Complete waste of time. They don't know how to treat migraines. Their solution is to throw narcotics at you. They get annoyed for refusing narcotics. They refuse to treat to national standard protocols for intractable migraines. (a year ago)

Came here on a Sunday with my child who was having severe abdominal pains. When we arrived they made us sit in the waiting room for awhile. Another lady was also sitting in the waiting room crying and struggling with kidney pains. She was leaned over holding her back. My child was doubled over w stomach pain. I asked if we could please have a bed for both ladies. I was told to wait. Ten minutes later the desk clerk (a male) was still sitting at the computer. I asked again if we could please have a bed and was told to wait again. Ten more minutes and I was v frustrated. I asked again and said "please! You don't have to treat us - just let these poor girls lay down". We were taken back and given an attitude by the nurse. ALL the beds were empty except for one. Makes no sense. (a year ago)
