Was admitted here in Feb 2012, and my wife the day after I was released. The staff and care was excellent. Since that time it has fallen into a spiraling dive, and now has excessive wait times and poor care. A good friend of mine came here in Aug 2014 with severe pain. No tests were done and he was sent home with pain meds and referred for physical therapy. 2 visits later after he became septic he was diagnosed with staff infection. It took them 2 months to diagnose a staff infection, and then only after an MRI was done. He became very sick and could have died waiting to figure out what was wrong. I have seen this occur at another ER out of state. If your doctors cannot even properly diagnose a staff infection properly you have a serious issue with the Doctors competence. I mean seriously, no tests, nothing but pain meds for a potentially fatal condition ? Get a life Teays Valley Hospital or people may not have life after coming here.
This place is insanely expensive for emergency services. We took my daughter a few weeks ago for a high fever. We were there an hour and a half. They took vitals, gave her some motrin. We went to the back. They gave me a cup to get her to pee in. They said she had infection and gave her a little dose of antibiotics and write a prescription and send us on our way. We get the bill today and it is $1200!!! For that!!
Next time we'll be going to MedExpress or Health Plus where we have had good experiences and less convoluted bills.
