Mid Coast Hospital is filled with people who are least bothered about patients

The staff was not very personable, and by the look on their face, one could make out that they hated their jobs. I could not see one single smile. It was very awkward. Fellas, if you hate your job, please leave. This is for the people at diagnostic imaging as well as registration and support services in general.

Even the nurses and doctors also functioned as if they were coming just for their paychecks. I know we all do, but then you guys are people whom we patients trust our lives with. I think that every single doctor and nurse should take psychology as their minor because they are dealing with people and need to show empathy as well as compassion for patients.

The care was okay, nothing much to write about. Better to avoid it

I was hospitalized for 5 days and am thankful to the entire staff for providing excellent care. Every single nurse, nursing assistant, doctor, and respiratory therapists were out of this place. The medical team treated my condition with enough understanding and support. Respiratory therapists were exceptional. These fantastic personalities ensured that I was recovering quickly. I was here for five days and not once did their service make me think that I made a mistake in coming here. Great Job!!!!!!

If you can avoid this hospital, then please do it. Mid-Coast Hospital is a perfect example of a hospital that has to be shuttered permanently.

The nurses, as well as the doctors, are least bothered about how you are recovering and how better you could be treated. They just do not bother. The nursing assistants were also not up to the mark. Except for one aide, others were lazy, sloppy and their ideal place would be in a departmental store arranging stuff in the aisles and racks.

The hospital is very filthy. I had to stay here for three days, and not once did I see any housekeeping staff come and clean the room. The sinks and toilets were stinking. I am not sure when was it last cleaned. The hospital floor was also very filthy and was not washed even once while I was there. The less said about furniture, the better. The food was also not worthy of eating.

I was very relieved when the doctor discharged me…won’t be back ever

I had to visit this hospital after I had a fall and got a few cuts on my face and hands, and these needed some stitches. I fell at 8:00 pm, reached the hospital by 8:15 pm, and I was walking out by 9:00 pm. The ER nurse and the PA were exceptional and provided excellent care. PA who applied the stitches was kind and had exquisite skill. The nurses were compassionate and on top of things. I was very satisfied with the way I was treated. Thank you
