I had to make a quick visit to the Emergency Room as I was injured at work, and my company policy is to visit the ER straight away even if it is a minor injury. The experience was a so-so, not sure if there is a better word to describe it.

The staff operating the place were good and friendly, but not sure about their competency. I ended up waiting for nearly four hours to get seen and then get discharged. So far so good. The real sting came after two weeks when I got the paperwork from the ER for submission to the company.

It was replete with errors and ailments which I never knew I had. For starters, they mentioned I was a heart patient and had severe hypertension. Wow, that is new for me considering the fact that my BP was 135/86, and on the last count, it is still regarded as normal. I am not sure you can diagnose cardiac issues without even testing.

They said I had severe injuries. Hmmm….never knew two cuts on the hand, as well as few lacerations, would be counted as severe. Funnily, they did not even clean it; I had to clean it myself. Thanks to them, I am a severe diabetic. WOW…just by looking at me they could diagnose that…..they never did a blood sugar test, and if done, they never let me know.

The final nail in the coffin was my name and gender. The name was misspelled, and the gender was female…I am MALE….

They might have sent a wrong report by mistake, but such errors should not have happened in the first place. These are medical records, and this becomes the basis of any treatment.

Needless to say, I won’t be coming to this ER again…cannot risk my life here

This is a review for the cafeteria. I was visiting my friend and wanted to have some food. I walked into the cafeteria and got a quick breakfast. It was delicious, and it was very cheap. I had the daily special which was priced $5.50. There is a Pepsi soda machine, and it is spotless, unlike other soda machines. The whole area was very clean, and I could not find any trash lying around. I am not sure about the services, but I will give a big thumbs up for the cafeteria.

Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital has got some of the best nurses and doctors on this side of the woods. They are friendly, caring, courteous, but most importantly highly competent. I took my daughter there for an injury and was pleasantly surprised at the care she received. It was incredible. We were in and out of this hospital within two hours, and that also included getting imaging and waiting for the results. I pray to God to keep all these wonderful angels always happy and content in life

I didn’t have a good hospital experience at this place. Firstly, my privacy was not respected, and secondly, they lied about the bill.

I had come for a procedure, and a smug nurse thought that I needed some introduction and went around the town discussing my ailment. Clearly, she had not heard about HIPAA. I was also handed an inflated bill which was much higher than what was quoted. I was given a bill of $5000 when I was told it would not cost more than $2500

Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital ROCKS!!!! And so does its fantastic staff. I had come here following a freak accident which resulted in the severing of my little finger. The ER team immediately got onto the task, and three hours later I was walking out with all my fingers intact. Keep up the good work, folks
