There’s no coordination at all. The whole hospital is a joke. My husband who has been fighting a horrible pain in the gut for 2 days now came to Kent County and was advised by one of the doctors to get admitted under observation for 24 hours. But after a few short hours they decided he had pancreatitis.! We weren’t sure what needed to be done for that so we asked and they said a surgery. And that they would start prepping for surgery the following day. A few hours later another doctor comes in, reads the file and tells us something else. We look at him confused and tell him that another doctor had come in earlier and said it was pancreatitis.

He looks confused and says that’s not possible and walks out of the room. Then for 2 hours we hear nothing. It was the most agitating feeling in the world. When you don’t even know what’s supposed to happen. My poor husband who was scared out of his mind didn’t know if he was going in for surgery the next day or not. Then both the doctors come in after 2 hours and tell him that thye screwed up the files.. and that another patient had pancreatitis and not my husband. He just had gas! You’re kidding me right?

Rudest staff. Worst service. Unclean environment. Horribly long wait. Definitely the worst hospital in town.

During medical tests the technicians have a lot to say about the patients..unsolicited if I may add. My daughter who has had several health issues over the past year has gained some weight.. it’s mostly due to hormonal imbalances.. but my question is why does the smart ass lab technician have the stones to ask her to get a personal trainer? MUST BE FIRED!!!

The ER is a joke..there’s not a softer way to put that. Always running short on staff. If you ask them where the doctor is they always have an excuse to throw an RN, NP, or PA into your face instead of an actual doctor. Then if you’re lucky you’ll get a qualified medical professional who will diagnose you but it’s not that simple.. they take their sweet time in finding out what that is because I’m just gonna say it.. they are NOT doctors. And I don’t care how much you studied and have achieved over the years, I don’t trust anyone else but a doctor.

I am not an easy person to deal with- there I said it. Especially when it comes to my health I am very scared. My mother died of a heart attack when I was 25 and it was out of nowhere. We didn’t see it coming at all and so everytime there’s a matter of health I am extremely cautious. More than cautious I get very antsy that something might go south.

So when I went to Kent County the other day on account of my recurring stomach aches I knew it wasn’t going to be easy for me. Everytime I’m at any hospital I just think of my mom. So that gets me sad and angry at the same time. I start yelling for no reason at the staff and mostly they yell back at me. But the staff at Kent County were very sweet. They didn’t even know what was going on with me but they were very affectionate, never once yelled back at me and continued to treat me as nicely as the next patient.

Which is the next thing I’m getting to: there’s no discrimination. They are so nice to everyone. I think a druggie came into the hospital and a few folks sitting in the waiting area were trying to be nonchalant about it but it was evident every one was nervous. Not the staff though- they treated him like they did me and that’s what I like most about this hospital. An update: my stomach ache was nothing serious, but I did have to meet a specialist the week after- turns out I am perfectly fine, it was just a scare.

The physician’s assistant helped me get over my fear of hospitals as well with a very simply worded pep talk which I really appreciated and gravitated towards. The kind of guidance I’d been looking ever since my mother died. Also they have a good flow of communication between doctors and nurses, something that helps define the efficiency of a hospital’s performance. Impressed to say the least and would come back here any day (let’s hope that’s not anytime soon though)

If you wait for 4 hours you may be lucky enough to see a doctor or at least a glimpse of him/her .
It’s funny how they call it an emergency room because even after 4 hours of waiting I left there with no service or help from the staff.
Decided it was best for me to go to another hospital like Miriam instead.
Wait time is half.

Ever since I moved to Warwick this is the only place here that I absolutely trust. On my second day here I met with a small car accident and they took great care of me. Not only caring and attentive to your needs but very knowledgeable. You could talk to them about anything, they will answer you with poise and charm.
