    I am a nurse. I know that not getting your pain medicine as quick as you would like or not getting taken back first from the waiting room does not make a poor emergency room. however, what does make a poor emergency room this this place. Came early in the morning with a nearly empty waiting room and quiet ER once we got taken back. We got taken back quickly but it took over an hour for the doctor to finally come see the patient. Giving them the benefit of the doubt on that one. The room was dirty with noticeable debris & blood stains on the floor. The attached bathroom had used wash rags on the sink! Not even a quick cleaning could have been done of this room. I brought my friend who was having a major productive cough and shortness of breath. The physician did not listen to her lungs and no nurse ever assessed her. She also had a red spot with scabbing on her back that she feared was a bedsore. The doctor took a 2-second look at it. Said that it was "just redness and there was no skin breakdown" therefore it's "not a sore, nothing to be worried about." Um, ever heard of a stage I pressure ulcer? The kind that is just erythema and no breakdown? Apparently not. Sigh.

    If I could give 0 stars I would. My first experience here a few years ago, they told me that I didn't have a staff infection on my leg(even I knew it was staff). I had to go back a few days later because it got so bad. After they treated me, I sat in the room for another hour waiting for my discharge papers. I would've waited longer if I hadn't have gone to the desk to receive them myself. My next complaint is on behalf of a family member. They sent her home once with water on her lungs after her rib punctured her lungs. She told them she couldn't breathe, they sent her home anyway. She, too had to make another trip back to this hospital for the proper care. A different time they told the same family member that she had Hep C. She was put on medication for it. Years later, she went back to CVMC with stomach issues. They took her gallbladder out. Stomach pain and weight loss continued. She went to a different medical center to find out that she is actually Hep C negative and that her gallbladder wasn't to blame for stomach issues. It was stomach ulcers due to the Hep C medication. The same family member is now suffering from pancreatitis. They have sent her home 3 times now, each time a different Dr. has told her something different for her aftercare at home. One Dr gave threatening advice, telling her to eat, which sent her back to the hospital again, only this time to hear that she shouldn't have eaten anything. Be skeptical of their advice if you ever have to stop here.

    I am writing this review from the waiting room of the Urgent Care in Sylacauga I was in the Emergency Room this morning at 5:00 am with severe tooth and jaw pains Saw the Doctor got a shot and a very small prescription for a very weak pain med Was feeling much worse at 2:00 pm today (basically 6 hours later) Went back to the emergency room and they turned me away ( I'm not a addict ) and have good insurance. The reasons was they said I already had my prescription filled and I just needed to wait on my dentist to open on Monday Well at this moment I'm at the Main Street Urgent Care , getting antibiotics and anti inflammatory meds The main concern was getting my co-pay They did get that right

    Horrible ER. Got here around 5:00pm. Seen people come and go, oh yeah, but us! I guess if you dont know anyone here, you are out of luck! Might as well drive somewhere else!!! It is 1:00am, still no answers. Mom is old, too weak to walk....but these people want to send her home. If I had any help, I would take her now, but she is too weak to stand. They were a few nice people here, but as for doctor, well he will have to answer to God one day! Karma, hmmm....you never know. Why do you have to get upset to be noticed. They family is already under strain, shouldn't a hospital be able to help???? Guess not in Sylacauga. Before you move here to retire, better look long and hard at this!!

    Poor excuse for hospital! Had I trusted them with their diagnosis for my son at 2 yrs old, not sure he'd be with us today and grown into the 19 year old brilliant very handsome young man who was a 2018 graduate from C'burg High School with Honors! He's now preparing for the next chapter in his life...Jacksonville State, here he comes! My son could have even had brain damage had we listened to the undereducated staff in that ER! After they argued for almost a hour with his dad and I, that we WEREN'T taking HIM anywhere after we informed and Stated to them WE wanted to and WERE taking him to Children's Hospital in B'ham. They told us his CAT Scan showed bleeding on his brain! The very heart wrenching words that's ONE of a parent's biggest fears and nightmare! Long story short, our son's pediatrician, Dr Robert Grey whom we love so much to this very day, gave THEM ORDERS to LET US GO, via transport by Ambulance! Dr Grey we still thank God for bc had it NOT been for God and that precious man the outcome WOULD have been catastrophic bc after Children's performed another CAT and compared it to that mangie poor excuse for drs and surgical team that was bam up in our face trying to take our son to the operating room, Children's found absolutely nothing wrong with our son from either CATscan! The lady Dr who was treating him at Children's called his father and I into a private conference room. First words that came out of her mouth was "Mr&Mrs..--- i want to first ASSURE you both there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR SON! HE'S VERY WELL & HEALTHY!! THOSE WORDS I'll NEVER forget and the BLESSED feeling of RELIEF in my heart and soul! I sat there crying as I thanked God and the Dr who knew exactly what she was talking about She continued to explain WHAT had happened at Coosa Valley and it was just completely UNBELIEVABLE WHAT we heard!!! She said in pediatric CATscans they CANNOT be READ as an ADULT'S would be read and if our son HAD been an adult THEIR diagnosis may have POSSIBLY been correct however, HE WAS ONLY 2 years old and it showed that he was absolutely WELL and FINE!! I can't put into words what Coosa Valley put us ALL through that very scary day but i can assure everyone I'll NVR TRUST THEM! Id advise against trusting THEM with your pet!!! I'll continue to share our nightmare THERE which had a VERY happy ending once we were at Children's Hospital!!! My word of WARNING IS BEWARE allowing THEM to operate on your loved ones WITHOUT getting a SECOND OPINION!! God bless Dr Grey, the lady Dr in B'ham, our amazing son, AND God Bless You All!

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
