Tampa General Hospital: "I recently spent a horrible 7.5 hours in Tampa General. I went through the ER to be seen and waited 5 hours just to get put in the back where instead of a room i was put on a bed in the middle of the main walkway where I sat for several minutes . While in the ER waiting area I witnessed a young woman in a wheelchair brought out from the ER back and put there with us to wait. She was convulsing for an hour. We as patrons asked her several times if she was OK. She mumbled yes incoherently. After some time she fell face forward out of her chair and hit the floor unconscious. Staff stood there while my wife ran to get other staff to help. It took a security guard to yell at a young RN for her to get up and help. The whole experience was like a circus or a nightmare. \r\nOnce I was taken into back it wasn\t any better. After 7 hours I was truly afraid to be admitted. \r\nThis hospitals reviews I have read are completely staged. I was a true patient with a true experience . The staff of RNs were thoughtless and wondered around back and forth accomplishing nothing while the doctors were overwhelmed. There is no efficiency at all and is a hospital with essentially one goal. To get money. \r\nI was born in this hospital back in 1973 and my mother told me even back then the hospital was bad. \r\nIn the end they wanted to admit me in order to do some blood work and quotpossiblyquot get an RA specialist in at some point. Too iffy and unsurites for me. My gut said to leave. My wife and my mother long distance said to run out of there ! I left immediately and don\t regret it. \r\nFor some reason if you go to this ER and want to leave the doctors think your not in charge. We are the patients and we pay for services. We can leave if the services are substandard or not done efficiently . \r\nBe careful when going to this hospital . Know your rights and have family and friends as back up! It\s a fishy standard they practice . Understand your HEPA rights as mine were violated when they discussed my medical problems in the open main walkway with no privacy. This was my experience.
