My 2yr. daughter was running a fever of 102, threwing up, having hot sweats and over the counter meds wouldn't break it. Since here daycare is on the same street I brought her here. The triage nurse was very slow and asking me where i work etc. Nothing to do with her. We finally go back and the staff is at the nurse station playing and laughing very loud while we're waiting. When the doc finally comes another lady comes with him never say who she was in street clothes with her purse texting on her phone the whole time she even answers it and tell the person she's at work she'll call them back...The doctor said my daughter was smiling she couldn't be that sick....he go on to say mother what do you work at I stated he go on to say that since Im in the medical field I know better then bring her here and its not an emergency. And dont worry about her fever because black kids rarely have seizures due to fever it's mainly white kids.... he said she just have a virus and if I wanted the could test her for the flu but WOULD I REALLY GO BUY THE MEDS BECAUSE ITS HIGH$$$$!!!!!! I said I sure will and yes I wanted her to be tested he got upset and walked out and said they will be in here to talk to me about it(who ever they was)... a couple mintues later the lady theat checked us in comes and say before swab her they need $250 since it's a non emeregency!!! Even though we have Blue Cross Blue Shield...We leave she had very bad night....brought her to her doctor she has the flu both A & B and strep throat.............I would be filing a complaint
Worse place I have ever been to, can't believe the wait time , nurses were laughing and playing ,never saw a doctor in two hours and I was only one of two patients there at the time,bathroom had no tissue or hand towels,triage nurse was very slow taking vitals and history , this hospital was close to home but I would not recommend it to anyone, my mother who is 84 felt very ill , if you value your life ,this is not the place for you.
