The first thing which I look in any hospital ER is the responsiveness of various staff members. If the security guard is responsive, the front desk responsive and the ER nurse, then it would be a great time in the hospital. If not responsive, then end up cursing yourself for stepping into a hellhole. However, Kona Community Hospital ticked all the boxes when it came to responsiveness. The ED staff was great and immediately attended to me despite the somewhat heavy rush in the department. They functioned like a well-oiled machine, and each knew what they, as well as others, were doing. There was no overlapping of care. They also treated my family very well. We spent a whole day at the hospital but did not feel exhausted or get a typical feeling which you get when you stay for a day in the hospital. My family was relaxed when I met them at discharge. The billing was also hassle-free. The only blip was the parking. They could improve it several notches. But it does not overtake the lovely care that I got at this place.

The floor nurses are very horrible and only come to the hospital to chitchat with their colleagues and collect the paycheck. My father was admitted here with a fracture and a deep cut on his shin. The fracture was taken care off, but the dumbos put butterfly bandages on the shin wound. I had to call the doctor, and he got the stitches done. But by evening, the wound started seeping, and blood was coming out. The night shift nurse came and cleared the wound and put a bandage around it. the next day morning, I left the hospital for a few hours for some work while requesting the staff to change the sheets as it was soiled with blood. They said okay.

When I came back after five hours, my dad was still lying on the filthy disgusting sheets. He was also not given any breakfast or water. I got pissed off and asked the nurses and the charge nurse about the lack of breakfast or water. The charge nurse was surprised. She did not know that a patient under her care was starving from the morning. The nurses had informed her that my father had his breakfast.

I could not take it anymore and asked the doctor to discharge us ASAP so that we could seek care in a hospital that cares for their patients. They do not offer care here, only incompetence and excuses.

Two night back, while on a vacay here, we had to take our son to the KCH ER after he started vomiting. The nurses and doctors were helpful, very friendly, and knowledgeable. They took good care of him, and we were out of the ER completely satisfied after six hours.

Unfortunately had to visit the KCH ER; a visit which extended to a 3-day hospital stay. The nurses and doctors treated us well. They were able to diagnose my illness promptly. They were very professional and did not give us a chance to complain about their service. I was happy that I sought care here. My doctors at Florida completely agreed with the treatment provided.

The only thing that KCH needs to improve is the signage. The actual ER is far off from Kona, so signage could help people get to the ER quicker.
