    Came in with my mom because she had a severe stomach pain and wouldn't stop throwing up. Sierra View hospital helped her out a lot and she is making a good recovery now :) The nurses were very nice to us and kept checking up.

    They maybe deserve half a star.... that should be an option. The nurses are unwelcoming, stand offish, and seemingly disinterested in patient care. They act as if requesting help or information is a major imposition on their time. Personal conversations prioritized over patients. There seems to be only ONE dr. to oversee patients. WOW. I keep reading horrible review after horrible review spanning back months. How embarrassing. Please don't direct me to call a patient care line because it clearly is as ineffective as the staff.

    came in for emergency treatment for my husbands life threatening condition after being shown to a hallway bed seen by a p.a. My husbands while suffering with chills and fatigue. Was set upon by nurse phillip who upon seeing me and my husband homeless situation demanded him to get up immediately to move to another room . seeing that he needed assistance didnt offer any nurse phillip threatened to call security even after my husband informed him that he was weak and needed a minute then told us he had one minute to move before he called security. My husband nearly fainted in his rush to switch rooms. Thank god he didnt. Just because we are homeless we were treated like animals instead of humans. We were embarrassed and frightened. By far the worse emergency room and hospital ever.

    Went in to ER with symptoms of a stroke. Waited over 5 hours to get a room. The only reason I'm giving 1 star is for the first Doctor I seen. I don't know his name, but he immediately ordered tests, showed a tremendous amount of concern did an excellent neuro exam and admitted me for further evaluation. After he went off duty the physician (if you want to call him that) came in, asked what happened and as soon as I started talking he turned and walked out saying he was going to find me a bed. I had to spend the entire night on a gurney in the ER and the entire next day. It took over an hour each time I pushed my call light for help until a night shift nurse named Michael (a traveler) came in and was right there for me whenever I needed anything. They moved me to telemetry that evening after change of shift. I got so many different answers from staff that after 3 days we left completely confused. Too much detail to go into. Just wanted to basically say. I will NEVER go back there again.

    I would give this establishment a no-star review if I could. The amount of women I personally know that have either actually DIED or suffered life-threatening symptoms after delivering their children here is outrageous and tragic. The labor/delivery nurses are completely at fault due to their delinquency. It is common for nurses at this hospital to leave gauze and other surgical objects inside of their patients after a surgery (e.g. all the women I knew that delivered here had gauze left inside of them and suffered infections and one actually lost her life). And to top all of this inadequacy off, the doctors/hospital affiliates (when informed of these issues) ride them off by stating that "nurses get confused/busy and can mess up, it is not a big deal". I suggest anyone interested in delivering their child here take heed of this warning and find yourself a decent hospital. I have no idea why the nurses at this establishment are so unorganized and lazy (like come on did they not learn the most basic rule that one should always take count of your surgical equipment prior to and after a surgical procedure in order to avoid leaving something inside the patient). I just wish that the hospital would uphold better standards/protocol when hiring/training their nurse staff. I get that it is very common to call out the "nurse" for being "half-witted" but I am sincerely concerned at the lack of care these individuals carry for their line of work. Seems like all they care about is a paycheck and the hospital simply cares about not getting sued. I would never try to demean the hard work that comes along with these medical jobs, but I truly do not think that they care about what they do and that is pathetic. Just because the patient does not fully understand their rights, does not mean one should take advantage of that. Shame on any of the employees that have taken part of or have been passive to these issues.

Compare The Number of Problems

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
