    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.

    Too much to text. Place is terrible. Let's just say my mom has to go by ambulance to Er and they bruised up her arm while she was there poking around. Transferred to brookwood didn't get one bruise from any tears they did on her. Sent brookwood wrong info. My mom never had colon cancer!!!!! Before that iv came out of her arm n told nurses for ONE hour that it was out n hit "be there in a minute" while they on phones or laughing n talking to each other. Went up to desk multiple times my mom screaming in pain. Let's just say I cared for my mom more than they did. Can't say what I'm here. I could go on n on but y'all know and get what I'm saying. Another thing back years ago for another example my son when he was in 5th grade got carried by ambulance on a stretcher in a neck brace. One hour later they came in. ONE hour and that's me having to go up to desk over and over. Then they gave the nerve to get attitude

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
