My husband went the first time for this abscess on his cheek, it was huge, painful and oozing "something". He was in agony when we got there and promptly after a 4 hour wait we were shown to a room. 40 min later a nurse practitioner?

I took my son there with a head injury in June. They made us wait for over 6 hours in the waiting room. They took less than 10 minutes to see him and have continued to bill us for various things since. I would not recommend anyone going

The ER, Dr's & Nurses were all very helpful. I had a heart attack and they saved my life. I don't want to go back but would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Baptist Desoto wasn't my first choice hospital to have my daughter but I really didn't have a choice and it was close to my home . Before having my daughter I took a tour and decided that maybe it wouldn't be that bad after all. At first everything went pretty well, I had a really nice nurse that new what she was doing but it soon all went down hill. Another nurse came in my room to draw blood and I have had blood drawn several times in my life and I think this was the the most painful blood drawing experience I've ever had. When my docter arrived and started his examination and he informed me that my water had been leaking for some time and the nurses did not pick up on this. I'm not done, time for the catheter, they ended up having to take it out several hours later because I was in so much pain and had not urinated that whole time, I was told later by my doctor that the catheter must have had a kink in it but they played dumb and I never got and explanation from any of the nurses. Last but not least after having my daughter and been transported to my room they needed to transfer me to my room bed a couple nurses came in and one of the nurses made the comment "we've got a big one here", in reference to my weight. OK people I had just had a baby and a C-section I'm gonna be swollen, beside the fact of what I had already been through a rude remark from a suppose to be professional was not called for. I work in the healthcare field myself and I still can't get over what I had to experience at Baptist Desoto, so if you plan on having a baby and you want a good experience then I wouldn't go to this hospital, I wish someone would have told me!!!!

I was having abdominal pain which was bad enough for me to ditch my nice saturday night for an ER trip.
As soon as i got to the desk i was ignored. The nurse was yelling and cussing at another lady through her window. I heard her saying they have no doctors, how hard is it to move them... so on. Frustrating, i decided to wait I was hurting so bad. Five hours later i stood up and every single person that was there before me was still sitting there. They took my blood weighed me and threw me back out in the waiting room. I was thinking i had appendicitis.
After several more hours and still no movement i left, I had to get the car back to my husband so he could go to work. I felt a little better but started a fever on monday. Tuesday morning i woke up with 103.5 and i knew there was something wrong with me. Went to minor med and they saw blood in my urine a 15 white cell count and told me to go straight back to the ER which i was so delirious from the fever i'm surprised i made it.

i dont think i was conscious for the wait but im not sure how long it was. I was burning a fever so hot i don't remember a lot.. I know the took me to a back room where there were people sitting around with ivs in their arms right next to me and i literally felt like i was dead. then there were people who looked fine and like they needed to go on home. Triage is to route by importance of the medical situation and they must not know that process whatsoever.

My mother went to the nurse's station and demanded to know a timeframe on when her daughter would be receiving some medical care. and the nurse's rolled their eyes and they brought me a wheelchair and said come on let's go get your vitals and then we'll bring you right back.. Nice to know that kind of dismissal is coming from someone who has your life in their hands.

needless to say i didnt go back to that room when they saw my minor med lab results and saw my ridiculous fever and my delirium and pain level. They straight iv'd me and shot me with pain meds and ordered fluids.

I was moved to an acutual room where the nurse failed to hook up my drip to my iv and my husband had to notice that it wasnt connected 30 minutes later. i had to drink contrast for a cat scan and call the nurse when i was done. my husband called and let them know they said wait one hour we'll come get you... the lady came over the intercom and asked my nurse what time did she finish her contrast and she didnt even know... good thing my husband was there to take notice and let them know.

my diagnosis was serious but i am glad it wasnt life threatening if it were and i was there alone... i may have died. I would never ever recommend this hospital. bad quality service, slow and apathetic people.

Methodist Germantown was a wonderful hospital when i was having my son. Im so sick that my insurance changed and i have to use baptist, it is really worrisome to me to know that if i ever get very sick i could receive such horrible care.

Pros: ones they know youre abt fall out screaming they take notice

Cons: slow, apathetic, poor attention to NECESSARY detail

My husband shot a nail through his finger in Oct. & was taken to Desoto Baptist ER. He was seen fairly quick, that wasn't the problem. At first we were pretty pleased with the care & bedside manner of the doctor & nurses. They were making jokes, which helped my husband to relax and all so when they brought out the bolt cutters & rusty pliers we thought that was real funny. Unfortunately for my husband, it wasn't a joke. They cut the nail in half with the bolt cutters, then they sliced his finger with a scalpel so they could have enough room to get the rusty pliers under the nail to pull it out. My husband followed the cleaning instructions to a tee (a little obsessively) & had to go back twice over the next month because he was in horrible pain & it kept swelling up with massive amounts of pus. Each follow up visit he was treated as if he were bothering the ER staff & was just given antibiotics & sent home. After 2 months of constant pain & no relief in sight he went to another hospital & was admitted immediately. Now my husband is going to lose his finger because he has a staph infection that has gotten into the bone. I am sure that had the doctor not used the rusty pliers or the subsequent visits had been taken a little more seriously he would not be going through this amputation. I STRONGLY recommend NOT going to this hospital! I had heard so many nightmare stories about them & now we are having to live through our own nightmare because of them!

We went to baptist when my husband cut part of his thumb off. We had to park a street over and walk to the emergency room. We waited an hour with him in pain and bleeding. They took him to triage and did nothing but move him over to ED. We were there 45 mibutes longer waiting to be called back again. They waited another hour before they gave himm x-rays and it was 3 hrs before he got a shot to numb the pain. We were in there for over 5 hours. For them to numb it and cleqan it before we left.

I had a medical emergency and went to Baptist hospital in South Haven Mississippi. I'm from the St. Louis area and had no other choice of a hospital. I was bleeding internally and upon arriving at the Emergency room, I was processed and placed in a small room. Unfortunately for me, this occured on Labor day weekend and the hospital was basically shut down. I saw the nurse in the ER and she got me as comfortable as possible. I briefly saw a doctor and gave him the name and phone number of my oncologist in St Louis who was aware of my emergency. According to the ER nurse, my doctor advised the hospital doctor to use a three way cathator to empty my bladder and relieve my stress. I waited for over six hours before the ER doctor gave the nurse permission to do this procedure. To make a long story shorter, I was told I needed a urologist to review my case. The ER doctor admitted me to the hospital and other than the cathator no treatment was given. I was in extreme pain and discomfort. The next day, I asked if the urologist had been called. I was told he was not requested and would come on the following Tuesday after the holiday. I complained so forcefully that the On call urologist was called and he came to the hospital. After he checked me out, he immediately performed surgery on my bladder to correct the problem. I spent another day in the hospital and when I left, I drove home, glad to get out of there. The only positive thing that I can say is that the Emergeny room nurse (Phyliss) and my room nurse (Brandy) and others tried their best to care for me.

First time in the ER with a child was a nightmare on many levels. Do not want to rehash but I was told later I should have gone to Le Bonheur; they know how to work with upset children and upset parents.
