Multicare Auburn Medical Center Stories

Multicare Auburn Medical Center: "If I could give zero stars I would. This is the worst ER I have ever been to. I went to the ER since I was having problems breathing. The lady at the desk could care less and as I struggled to talk she checked me in. Then sent me to sit in a corner where I am sure if I passed out no staff would have noticed. The desk faced away from the waiting area which is a terrible set up.

I finally got called to get checked in by a nurse who did not care to answer any questions. She was rude and just wanted me out of the check in room. After being told my vitals were fine as I was bent over coughing struggling for air (I had a negative covid test, lots of them in fact) and it would be a long time since I was not a priority.

I got called for an xray about an hour later. The lady doing the xray was nice but left me after telling me I was done. I had no clue how to find my way back to the waiting room and found another staff member to help me. The xray lady did come to apologize at least.

I had to use the restroom at this point and someone had a bowel movement that ended up all over the ladies room floor. I told the first staff member I saw and was told to tell someone else. I told the second staff member I saw while still struggling to breath. They did not care and said it was not their problem. I finally waited in the line and told the lady at the check in counter. She said she would call someone to clean it up. I used the restroom around three hours later and it was still there. Either no one was called or no one showed up.

After over five hours of not being able to breath easily I was called to a room. The nurse said dr will be in a minute and left me. The dr showed up about ten minutes later. Pretty much ignored what I said to him and prescribed me an antibiotic. I wanted oxygen and at the very least a steroid. The dr was in the room less then five minutes. Right after that someone from the front area came to take payment, they sure were prompt with that area. Then the nurse took forever to come take the IV out of my arm and bring the RX for the antibiotic. Almost 7 hours in the ER due to not being able to breath and I am worse then before I went in.

All the pharmacies were closed by the time I got out despite having go to the Er around 2:30pm. I still cannot breath and am scared to go to sleep thinking I wont wake up.

If I have to go to an ER again it will be Covington. At Auburn you suffer waiting on the drs to give no help."
