    Mckenzie-Willamette Medical Center: "Went into the ER at McKenzie Willamette Hospital with a leg infection that had gotten worse over the course of a couple of weeks. I was seen within minutes and due to their protocols my infection was determined to be septic (sepsis) and from that second forward the staff and Dr's kicked into high gear pumping me full of antibiotics. Everything was meticulously and professionally choreographed and 7 days later I was discharged. I can't say enough about the nurses and staff (yes even the hospitalists) the food wasn't even that bad. 5 stars from me!" - ROGER

    Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center: "At first I was delighted to find such a well-run hospital complex. Now I think the employees are too terrified about the ratings to do their jobs. I have had bad experiences with my providers not listening to me or supporting me. " - kathren

    Asante Three Rivers Medical Center: "The wait times on this site are not accurate. Have a toddler there right now with head injury and has still now been seen. We have been waiting 3 hours already. Pathetic especially when we were sent here from urgent care." - M

    Ohsu Hospital And Clinics: "Underwent a surgery at OHSU and contracted an infection there. Because of the infection the second surgery was performed and most powerful antibiotics prescribed. However, the infection is not mentioned anywhere on my record. The rationale for the second surgery and antibiotic treatment is merely omitted. This is because the number of infections contracted during a surgery is one of the characteristics on which most of the hospital's ratings are dependent. This is how OHSU manipulates its ratings.

    Sacred Heart Medical Center - Riverbend: "PeaceHealth only puts their "Mission Statement" on the wall to look good. In my experience they do not practice it. One doctor even stated, "It's not like you're going to die tonight". She then proceeded to party down on New Year's and NOT perform a neurological exam as indicated in my records. Mistakes are made.
    People are injured (sometimes). Lives are lost. Oh, well. Just increase premiums and reimbursements. Only a few will make it to court."
