Firelands RMC is one amazing hospital. It is very proficient, friendly, and fast. I have visited various hospitals in different countries, and I have not seen any hospital that can match Firelands in terms of care. You may have high-tech equipment, but then you also need compassionate people who will treat you as a human being and not just any number which is supposed to be rushed off. I am amazed by how they handled my 1 YO son, who was kicking and screaming because of ear pain. The boy who was wailing and crying hoarse was smiling when we were leaving the hospital. Never got such wonderful service in Cleveland Clinic.

People might say whatever they want to, but for me, these people and this hospital are a godsend. My son fell ill, and a blood draw was suggested. We go to this ER and are called in quickly. The tech takes one look at the script for a blood draw and raises his eyebrows. He asks us to wait and goes to see the doctor. The doctor comes and asks me certain questions and then says the script was wrong. It was not the correct test. They call up my doctor’s office and after a lengthy conversation of nearly 45 minutes, gets the correct test ordered and the blood was drawn. We got the results pretty quickly. I could not but help asking the doctor why the long conversation…his answer, “we would not want you to come back again for the correct test. Now that you are here, we thought it would be better to get the correct test.”

AMAZING!!!!

Firelands RMC was a horrible experience for us. The doctor and surgeon excellent, the after-care nurses horrible.

My wife had gall bladder surgery, which was a bit more complicated than expected. The surgeon did a good job, and my wife was transferred to after-care. This is where all the trouble began. The after-care nurses simply ignored my wife. They never gave her meds on time. If she wanted to go to the bathroom, the nurse would not respond and go away from the room. She had to ask for help several times. Things did not change despite complaints to the charge nurse. As a matter of fact, it became even worse. I went to the nurses’ station, wanting to complain about the service, but they were sitting and chatting. They were behaving as if I was non-existent. It was very insulting. We were very relieved when she was discharged.

If you love your family members and want to see them living and having a decent stay in the hospital, then do not bring them here. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

Thank you to the wonderful team of doctor and nurses in the ER for saving my son’s life. I had to wait for a while, but once my son was taken back, the team ensured that he was made comfortable and then took him straight to the CT lab and then back. He had a pulmonary embolism. We had to stay in the hospital for nearly a week. The floor nurses and the doctors were awesome! Very happy with the treatment we got. Would surely return if the need arises

Horrible experience at this ER. The check-in was super quick and I was taken back to a room in less than 10 minutes. But the ER doctors did not read my chart; it seems. They were very confused when I told them about my ailment. They either forgot or completely ignored my symptoms. It seemed that they were trying to rush me through. I got checked out and went to another hospital two days later where I got appropriate treatment
