I had a great experience during a visit to Somerset Hospital two months back. Professional staff. Very attentive. Great nursing team and exceptional doctors. I had gone for a painful left leg, which was diagnosed as an ankle fracture. Appropriate treatment was provided.

The hospital was super clean and easy to navigate. The staff and hospital itself were efficient! Thanks to everyone for the compassionate care!

If you are guessing which is the country’s most incompetent hospital, then look no further because it is none other than Somerset Hospital in Somerset, PA. The ED is run by a bunch of nincompoops who have no clue on what to do and how to handle patients.

I had to visit this shithole because of severe pain in the leg. The doctor (at least looked like one) ordered an x-ray and declared I was alright, and things would settle down soon. Well, guess what – it did not. Three days later, I visited another ER where x-rays showed a minor fracture in the shinbone, something which the idiot at Somerset did not catch. I was put into a cast and meds given.

I will not return to this dump again….cannot risk my life here

Thanking every individual at Somerset Hospital for taking excellent care of my father. My dad was treated respectfully. The staff showed compassion, professionalism, and utmost kindness while dealing with him. He is a tough patient, but you guys handled him well. It is evident that your care was exceptional because it has been three months and he still cannot stop singing paeans about the time he spent here. My family thanks the entire staff very much! All of you would always be in our prayers

Somerset Hospital in PA is a JOKE!! The entire staff does not know how to treat, and they do not have any clue about medicine.

I had a fall and had shooting pain in my right leg. I visited this ED wanting to check if everything is okay. Initially, the doctor was not too keen on doing an x-ray; God knows why. Finally, when he saw that I was not going to give up, he did an x-ray and determined everything was okay.

However, the bozo wrote for imaging of the wrong leg. I had pain on the right leg, and this idiot wanted to have an x-ray of left leg. He was not ready to take another x-ray.

I had to visit another hospital where imaging showed I had cracked my ankle. Necessary treatment was done, and I was back home very quickly...

Won’t be back at Somerset Hospital

The ER doctor who was on duty a few nights back was fantastic. My husband had suffered a heart attack, and I rushed him here. The doctor at Somerset Hospital ER did a stellar job in not only diagnosing Jim but also getting him prepped for immediate cardiac surgery. The support team also played an excellent supporting role. Thank you, everyone
