Where to even start...if you value your life or health do not even consider going here. I feel sorry for the people that are truly good at what they do that have the misfortune of working for them. Today I had an APPOINTMENT scheduled at 9am today 08/22 at the Lewisburg clinic and 45 minutes later I still sat there while they took all the walk in people who came in AFTER me for the exact same thing before me. They told me they'd fit me in when they had time. Last time I checked that's what you do for a walk in not a called two weeks ago to schedule an appointment person.

That was on top of my husband having a wet bloody pillow on his ER bed when he didn't shed a drop of blood. He broke his leg August 1st around 6:30pm and when they took him for a second set of x-rays he came back from x-ray to his ER room with a wet bloody pillow on his bed touching his bare skin. My husband had a compound fracture of his right leg and never once shed a drop of blood so it was someone else's. The ER Dr. took the pillow holding it away from him like it was going to bite him yet it was perfectly ok to be on my husband's leg. I took a photo of the pillow and the ER room because not once did I hear an apology or an offer to check it for any diseases that my husband could contract so frankly I did not trust them to handle it appropriately in the future. Monday night 8/3 my husband's pain got so bad we hit the call button at 6:15 and it was not until I called in their rapid response team did all the Drs who ignored the pages show up 45 minutes later. This entire time my husband is in a full on panic attack and hyperventilating the entire time to the point his entire body is locked and rigid and could not move. Then Tuesday 08/04 while he is still on IV pain medication they fight tooth and nail to send him home the day after he spent all evening hyperventilating from the pain. The residents refuse to listen and get cocky and arrogant that they know better simply saying they'll send him to a rehab facility despite the FACT that a rehab facility will NOT accept patients on IV pain meds. Add that to a nurse, Cheryl, who was only covering 3 hours of a shift on my husband's floor from 7:30pm Wednesday 08/04 to 11pm deciding for herself that even though we FINALLY had my husband on a good pain control routine that she didn't like the times and order he was taking his meds in so she changed it all up without consulting him, myself, or anyone else. Then decided that his leg would be much better in the position she put it in which was excruciating for him rather than the comfortable position he had it in and did not listen and was rude and ignorant when he tried to change it back to how it was. Worst place ever!
