    My wife and I have had cause to use this hospital dozens of times over the last 13 years. They have always been nothing but professional. I suspect that that the negative reviews on here are predominantly from drug users that have been turned down for narcotics. This is a wonderful local hospital, and I would love to have conversations with those that say otherwise. Bring documentation....

    The ER nurses were super. The woman at the ER desk would NOT put on my report that I said I had a bowel obstruction. She said she would put down "constipated". I told her I was not constipated but she wouldn't listen. When I saw the ER nurse I explained that I was not constipated but I had a bowel obstruction. (This was my 8th bowel obstruction). The ER nurses treated me with respect and professional care. Except for the first woman the rest of the hospital staff treated me exceptionally well. I am 70 years old and have been in several hospitals in my life and I would rate this hospital in the top 10% for care and service.

    If you should need a hospital for any reason I would recommend traveling a bit farther to a different one. The bedside manner of all the staff in this place SUCKS. If you have a story to tell about how you got hurt or when you got sick, be prepared to repeat it over and over again because of the horrific lack of communication the staff shares. If you take medications that can cause false positives for illicit drugs, they will make that known and treat you like a junkie regardress of what you say, and within the walls of this hospital choose your words correctly because any tiny miscommunication will force the old fart doctor in the ER to involuntarily commit you to a mental facility!

    I had a bad problem with the emergency room service the other night. I talked to the patient relations about my complaint. I had received a call from the Emergency room supervisor. I felt that she was listening to her staff and accusing myself and my husband of been rude towards the staff. Next time, I will be recommending a doctor and nurse with good communication skills.

    I have the utmost respect for all of the ER staff have worked Side By side with some of these ER nurses for going on 7 years. I am a local Paramedic and also have sick family members that have received excellent care from ER staff. I have witnessed countless acts of kindness, empathy ,sympathy and professionalism. Keep up the good work Guys and girls. Your EMS family love and appreciate all you do for our families and our community.

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.

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
