: "I was told by Urologist after a CT Scan to go to Greenville Mem Hospital ER because of a kidney infection. I was admitted pretty quickly and hooked up to an IV. I never saw anyone for an hour and a half. I had 3 alarms going off including an empty IV most of that time. No one ever came. I had to get off the bed and stretch the IV\r\nso I could just get my head beyond the curtain to catch someone's attention. I said I wanted to leave and they said I would have to sign a release which I told them I would be happy to do. Another hour and no release , so I walked out, It's a good thing I didn't have a heart attack ( I've had 3) or I would be dead. Remember 3 alarms were already going off and no one responded. Their excuse- shift change." - S.

: "A family member under the age of 10 was having suicidal thoughts and made many attempts. We waitied over 6 hours to be seen. When then request to be discharged to have her taken to another hospital and they wouldn't.My family amd ai understood the importance of the child being seen but waiting the time we waited and still no time when she would ne seen was hard to understand. The nurse was head nurse was rude and carefree. It hurt to already have a love one feel like giving up on life at such a young age. But the experience wqs comforting either." - Unknown

: "The Lexington County ER is an abomination. Last year, they sent me home when I was septic, telling me to stop throwing up. When I came back in by ambulance, I ended up having a colectomy. Been here 2-1/2 hits in severe pain, possible bowl obstruction. Nasty woman behind the desk said it could be another 3-1/2 hours. Wish there was somewhere else best us but there isn't...." - Barbara

: "1. Colleton County Hospital in Walterboro SC sent my Dad home in an ambulance with a staph infection on his arm and babbling incoherently and unable to sit up on his own- less than 12 hours after calling 911 to get him-STROKE.. I immediately came when called and had him taken back to the hospital within a few hours. Great Pictures of the staph on his arm. Oh no...there is more? Oh yes there is....\r\n2.Colleton County Hospital in Walterboro SC sent my Mom Home with some Magic Mouthwash not covered by Medicare/BCBS and 53.00 at CVS of course. Her symptoms you ask? Well, the doc never asked if she was vomiting or had a headache...the white patches on the roof of her mouth, the red dots on her tongue, the red scratchy throat and the fact she doesn't have any lymph nodes on one side due to treated aggressive neck cancer should at least warrant a culture. Sorry Doc, the fever was high for a few hours when it hit her....that lymphatic system works a certain way doesn't it when most of is removed...fevers don't last ..but the infection does. Wait till you see these pictures...they are even better than having the patient in your face. \r\nSomebody is teaching these employees to do things a certain way. I would be embarrassed right now to be on the board of this hospital. A former US Chamber employee in DC thanks you for your consistent incompetence at this facility based on their personal experience.\r\n\r\n" - pissesoffnow

: "I've been in the ICU at SRHS in Pascagula,MS for 4 days now. I have not been allowed to bath or even brush my teeth. The staff treats you like you have the pleage or something. All they do is sit around and watch YouTube videos and laugh. When you press your emergency call button they just hit cancel call and continue watching videos. I actually heard one gentleman say "I wish that old bitch would just die already. More like a third world country than a hospital." - Jon

: "This ER is hands down the worst I have ever seen. If you don't arrive by ambulance, you could wait up to 8 hours to be seen or longer. I know of some people whose father died sitting waiting to be seen in the ER. And there were a total of 3 people there in the entire ER. Drive to Greenville... or call an ambulance. The nurse told me that the ER dept is contracted out at this hospital. The doctors are not truly employees of that hospital. " - kathy
