    This hospital is a disgrace. My 73 year old mother was admitted to Tuomey for anemia, dehydration and lesions on her liver. First , a majority of the nurses are very unprofessional. All I heard when I was there was whining about how hectic their day was and how they can't wait to go home. One nurse complained to my mother about the other patients she had. I mean, who does that? I witnessed another patient fall down and you could hear all of the nurses at the nurses station talking about it and laughing. The bathroom in my mothers room smelled like urine and the paint on the wall was coming off. One morning my mother was served a tray of food for breakfast, she opened her carton of milk and proceeded to pour some in her coffee only to have it coming out in chunks. The damn milk was curdled. My mother told the nurse about it and she didn't really seem to care. Oh, I forgot to mention the moldy bread on the sandwich that was served to my mother for lunch one day. How is this acceptable? The two "specialists" as they called themselves in the radiology department are a joke. They were cursing, laughing and whispering to each other and one was messing around on her cell phone. I could go on and on about this horrible place, like the reception lady in the ER who stuck my mother in a hallway because she said she was going to be in the way with her wheelchair. She then told my mother that they didn't have a bed for her and she could go home and they would call her when one became available. First of all, my mother was transported there by ambulance from her doctors office. So isn't it obvious that her doctor didn't want her going home? This place is scary and one should never stay there alone if you have to be admitted. It hasn't gotten any better since Palmetto Health took it over either. They need to hire quality people who take pride in their job, are respectful and have compassion for their patients. I will give credit to the transporters. Every single one of them were respectful, caring and helpful. Also, there is one tech who was very polite, showed concern and was just an overall pleasant person. Her name is Jennifer. This hospital needs more people like her.

    I was a patient at Palmetto Health Tuomey from Sunday July 16 until Tuesday afternoon July 18. Words cannot express how much I appreciate everything that was done for me while I was there.I went in at ER because of a heart issue and efficiency and expert care is what I would and do call the care given me.I was admitted to third floor. Not sure if it is North or South but room 319.All of the nurses, techs, student nurses, and anyone else assigned to me were just absolutely fabulous, or remarkable, or just darn right precious. Words cannot express, I repeat as I said early. Food service and food itself was acceptable. I say it like that because I was on a diabetic diet and the food is not going to be all salty and sweet.It was healthy and nutritious. Thank you for opportunity to voice my gratitude. They were all doing there job, but it never hurts to hear praise for doing a good job. Submitted wholeheartedly, Patsy Scott.

    Four of my friends had mammograms (2 traditional, 2 via 3 D imaging) done here recently. All four of them had to have the procedure repeated. The second visit is considered diagnostic (patient responsibility varies by insurance companies and plans), not preventative, (typically covered at 100%) and has resulted in out of pocket expenses. The mammography department should consider obtaining better/more images in a single visit. This would result in less radiation exposure, reduce repeat visits, minimize unnecessary billing, and eliminate worry/anxiety while awaiting results. It also makes us wonder if their instruments are accurate and reliable. In addition, results should be shared immediately with patients who have to have repeat mammograms and/or ultrasound. The staff was very friendly.

    I was a patient here in the ER. They brought me there via ambulance due to chest pain and suspicion of heart attack. They moved me to a storage closest because the rooms were full. A lady came to do the EKG and messed up and yelled F**K and left the room. I didn't see another person till my parents got there 1hr later where they finally found me screaming for help in the storage room. So long story short you are better off to drive to Columbia or Florence. This place is terrible. Tuomey more like Tomestone

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
