RMH. I know you working on it. You still have a ways to go. If you were the first hospital that ever existed and had to learn so this brand new I would be more understanding. However, you can send someone to observe how the ER works in other top rated hospitals and make the necessary changes. I have literally left RMH driven to Lawrence memorial got pain taken care of and came back to Ottawa went to the ER to just see how fast things were going and people who were ahead of me were still waiting. ??? Drive to Lawrence, sign in, triage, room, nurse, doctor, discharge, drive home to Ottawa and people still in ER waiting. This was like a week before the new ER opened. I sure hope the more staff and larger space has increased speed. Btw... When someone is in pain try what LMH does. Someone tells there doctor while you're being triaged so the doctor can visit you right away just to make sure it's ok to give pain med and then will come back for the regular visit. I waited in horrific pain in the ER at RMH while they nurse couldn't get the IV hose untangled and 45 min later when the doctor finally showed up my episode was starting to calm down and they have me two antacids for the esophogeal spasm that I told them I was having when I first arrived and received no pain medicine or antacids right away. The lady who comes and gets insurance information in your room always has come when I've been in extreme pain. I seen it in the other room as well. That should be the very last thing before discharge. This is not rocket science. Hire someone like me to get this all fixed. (a week ago)

Several years ago when I went into labor, I went to Ransom Memorial Hospital. They told me I wasn't in active labor and I needed to go to my Doctor in Olathe. We left, made it down the road and my water broke. We were very scared due to the fact the baby was breech. We had a scheduled cesarean with my regular Dr. but the baby was coming early! My husband called Ransom Memorial and told them my water broke, what do we do we are scared. They said we can't help you. You need to take her to Olathe. We had to drive 100 mph all the way to Olathe Medical Center for fear The baby or I would be injured or worse. The baby's foot was on its way out when we arrived at Olathe Medical Center. We barely made it. I had to have an emercency cesarean and have never been so scared. Thanks to Ransom for sending me away, I have been forever traumatized by this horrible experience. I still have nightmares. (3 weeks ago)

Dear Ransom ER staff. Thank you for helping my little girl Madilynn. We have come in several times because of "Nurse maids elbow.". You all have treated us kindly , respectfully, and promptly no matter how busy or tired you may be. She calls you her friends which is pretty good for a 3 year old. Thank you again. Aaron A.

I have found a 5 star hospital in Ottawa and I have already told friends about. The hospital staff are very nice and knowledgeable. The hospital is by far very clean. The Radiology department is wonderful, the orthopedic surgeons are top notch, with the very best bedside manners. They talk to you in words very easy to understand. I was able to be seen same day, unlike other places that I couldn't get in for 2 weeks or longer. I am definitely a satisfied patient. The very best out patient receptionist. Overall I am very satisfied by far.Dr. Kenneth Wertzberger and his assistant Shane Alford are the very best......... If anyone is in need of a great orthopedic surgeon, they are the best.

This is the worst place I have ever worked. Do not trust management at all. And whatever you do, don't get hurt on the job. They will terminate you rather than take care of you. (4 months ago)
