I'm sitting at Regions right now writing this review. I had to check in sigh 3 different people and tell them the EXACT same info each time. Then they tell me there is only one patient ahead of me so it will be quick. Hours later I'm still sitting in a gown waiting to see the doctor. The girl who took me back walked a yard in front of me and didn't even talk to me except to say she was happy it wasn't busy today. Ok then..... So the nurse comes in and I tell my story again. He acts indifferent and says he will get the doctor. Still waiting......

I've had 4 children and 3 of the births at different hospitals were great. This birth experience at Regions still bothers me. The doctors were unknown to me (they were 3 women), unprofessional (they told me I "better hurry because their shifts were ending soon"), and they treated me like a number. My baby was turned the wrong direction (not breech but flipped facing the wrong way) -- which they never bothered to figure out. That should have been obvious by the fact that my labor wasn't progressing and my contractions wouldn't stop in between. This went on for hours. The birthing room was dark. I was in utter agony for the pain and told them I needed help (again -- I've had other children and know what normal labor is like) but they were so interested in each other that I felt like my pain was unimportant to them. The nurse from the delivery did come to the room the next day to apologize saying she's never seen a woman deliver her baby naturally when they're flipped that way and she was sorry they had missed that.
The hospital room was ridiculously noisy. It was located along a water line and every time someone used the water in the other rooms, it made a loud clunking sound and woke me up. All in all, I wouldn't send my worst enemy to Regions to deliver a baby. Worst possible care. Horrible birth center. This experience was 6 years ago and it still makes me angry.

Usually when you think of the emergency room you think of promptness, efficiency, and service. However, twice I have been in the emergency room at Regions Hospital, and twice I have waited for more than an hour each time! It's scary to think about what would happen if I was in a life-threatening situation!

PROS: friendly doctors
CONS: long wait, doctors not qualified, kinda ghetto

I was hospitalized here twice, once as an ICU/regular care patient, and once as a psychological care patient. Both times, the amount of care and compassion I received was phenomenal.

The records are kept electronically and in a written chart, so there is very little chance for errors coming up. When doctors visited, they would speak with me for as long as I felt I needed to talk, making sure to reassure me even if it did seem redundant or repetative.

When I came into the ER, I was immediately taken back, the insurance details dealt with after my crisis, not before. I was met with no fewere than four nurses and the attending doctor. I was a "code red", so I needed attention ASAP. And that's what I got.

There have been times I've gone since that original visit, that I've felt substandard care, when I've coughed up blood and been dismissed with a simple stethoscope to the chest and a diagnosis of bronchitus, even though I feel there's more to it than that. But all in all, the quality, the quickness of care, is wonderful.

As a psych patient, the standards were a bit lower, as the ward was in the old part of the hospital. None of the newer beds, these were hand-crank beds, the ward had one shower, and two bathrooms per gender. Each room was to be split between two people, and there were about 12-14 rooms, if I recall correctly. Checks were performed often, but seeing the psychiatrist was not a frequent thing. Coming in on the weekend meant I saw an on-call who was not well trained in human compassion. She chose to focus on my weight and not my mental well-being, and instead of making me feel better, made me feel worse about myself in a very critical time.
I think the psych ward is probably an underfunded portion of the hospital, just from the four-five days I was there and saw things. Especially after comparing it to the other parts (ICU, regular wards, ER).

PROS: compassionate, quick, knowledgeable, high-tech
CONS: mental ward a little sub-par, some ER docs quick to release patients
