This Hospital is awful. The nurses sit at the desk and let their patients in pain. The room smelled like urine. Then it took hours to get back the lab results. What really upsets me the patients in so much pain and the Patient Access is there worried about insurance and billing. Really that can be taken care of when the patient is stable. Also Pa’s shouldn’t be in Ers they should be treating sutures and broken limbs not medical emergency’s. My husband is in pain and the pa asked if he was choking really???? I would bring my guinea pigs here. (in the last week)

My father-in-law was taken here after showing symptoms of a stroke. Going in for the first time was interesting. Some parts look new and modern, while other parts looked to be from the 40's or 50's. The staff were nice enough, but I was happy to get my father-in-law and myself out of there. (2 months ago)

Witnessed them misdiagnose one of their own nurses babies. My father went in with stroke symptoms, they kept him overnight, figured out absolutely nothing and sent him home. No recommendations or information. I went in after I had passed out one day for no reason. Not a clue as to what could have caused it, no testing then sent on my way. I’ve never passed out from anything before. The doctors here are only doctors on paper and to earn a paycheck, they misdiagnose half of their patients and the other half gets pushed out the door after they rack up the bill. Disgusting. Most people that work here won't come here or let loved ones come here, what does that say for quality of service? (2 months ago)

Dirty, horrible staff, I even overheard them making fun of patients including me. Gossiping like they were in a schoolyard (a week ago)

This place creaking sucks! Like please clean house and get better staff.This place is horrible! (2 weeks ago)
