I've got a number of chronic illnesses and am retired on permanent disability. I've had too much experience in too many hospitals.While I've had some problems at Loudoun, it is the best hospital I've been in, both in the ER and as an in-patient.I've found that the best indicator of the care you will get is nursing morale; patients deal mostly with nurses and nurses who feel appreciated give good care. Nurses work hard and are not treated well by the management of some hospitals. Some physicians are abusive to nurses; some patients are also rude -- it's not hard to say "please" and "thank you." Loudoun is not equipped to handle some major procedures, and it will transfer patients to the appropriate area hospital (transplant center, major trauma, neonatal problems) by ambulance or air ambulance as necessary. I'm very sorry about the woman who had the painful experience with her hip. It is important to remember at all times that you are not just a patient, you are a customer. You have the final say on anything that is done to you (at least while you're awake).In ANY hospital, if you are undergoing a procedure that is unacceptably painful, tell the doctor, nurse, or technician to stop. Ask the physician (not a tech) to explain why the procedure is so painful; if the answer is absurd, demand analgesics or tell them to stop what they're doing. Sometimes the pain is the best of a number of poor choices.I've encountered some problems at Loudoun, but not nearly as many problems as happened in other hospitals, where: I woke up in the middle of surgery; a nurse screamed at me for hemorrhaging on a sheet (I was in the hospital for hemorrhaging);nurses in two different hospitals diverted morphine (if you tell anyone, they say you're trying to get extra morphine or too high to remember you got your analgesics); some hospitals ignore drug allergies until you have a serious reaction; etc.The ER at Loudoun has saved my life a number of times. I've been hospitalized for ten days in Loudoun three or four times, as well as a number of shorter stays. The care remained excellent for the entire stay. Loudoun and some other hospitals have a policy that all IVs have to be removed and started in a new vein after 72 hours. While some folks hate having IVs started under any circumstances, moving IVs every three days prevents infections and phlebitis -- both of which I've gotten in other hospitals.Loudoun is a regional hospital that is set up to handle frequent problems: births, auto accidents, heart attacks, gall stones, appendicitis, pneumonia, cellulitis, "weekend warrior" injuries -- falling off ladders & roofs, injuries during yard work, injuries during sports,

I WENT THERE I HAD A BROKEN/DISLOCATED HIP. I WAS IN EXTREME PAIN. WHEN THEY TRIED TO TAKE AN X-RAY IT WAS VERY PAINFUL SO THE TECHS WOULD NOT TAKE IT. HOWEVER, THE DOCTOR DID NOT WANT TO WEIGHT 5 HOURS AND PROCEEDED TO PULL MY LEG OUT STRAIGHT. I SCREAMED AND SCREMED BUT THE DR WOULD NOT STOP UNTIL SHE GOT HER X-RAY. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOSPITAL TO ANYONE.
