Think Twice - If Not Life Threatening Go Elswhere, 7/18/2011

This year, 2011, my wife and I have had two bad experiences with this hospital. My wife was misdiagnosed by the emergency room physician when she was having severe problems breathing through her... nose. I was admitted to the hospital because I was vomiting and had stomach pain and found staffing levels so low that I was not given a wet cloth to wash up after I was unable to leave the bed for two days. Yes, if you think you are having a stroke or heart attack or are bleeding, go here so they can stabilize you. If you are having some pain or discomfort that is not life threating, go elsewhere - preferably the emergency room at Piedmont Hospital, or just any other hospital.

low standards and lazy people, 5/16/2008

my mother was dying in this hospital and still the nurses could find the time to bring herpain medication, or to help her when she pushed her panic button. many times we had to go track down a nurse... and even then it was like pulling teeth trying to get them to help us. my mother also caught a new illness everytime she visited this hospital.

Takes good care of you

We all know nightmare stories from hospitals. My father was in intensive care and I am convinced they saved him. Nurses were top professionals

Mixed Review - ICU staff bad/Other staff great

I was in ICU for 4 days. A few of the nurses were excellent (Patrice was the best!!!) but the majority were less than acceptable. (E.g. - I was in severe pain and asked a nurse if it was time for medicine. Her answer was a curt "No". I was in distress and asked her to please check my chart to see when I could have something. At that point was when she told me when she "thought" I was due for medicine.) Their overall callous attitudes caused me and my family a great deal of stress. Ironically, once I was moved to a regular room the nurses were absolutely fantastic. In fact, every employee I came in contact with outside of ICU was caring, competent, and helpful. Even the lady from the food services came in and told us if I didn't like something they brought me to send my husband to the cafeteria and tell them "Miss Dorothy said to give you whatever you want." ICU is the place a hospital needs exceptional employees. As long as you don't need ICU at North Fulton, the staff is great.

not a great ER visit

They missed a fracture on my dad's arm when he fell out of a tree. I'd rather take my chances and traver farther - like to Northside Hospital!

Decent place

I had an outpatient surgery there. it's a nice facility and the nurses are very nice. In need of an upgrade though.

Average emergency room

We've been for emergencies a couple times. Nothing great to write home about, but could be worse. They seem like a small hospital - we went to ER in the middle of the night once and they had to call in a radiologist from his house to come in and read the report. You'd think they'd have people around 24 hours that could do that.

Average

This hospital is still in need of hospitality. They are capable of handling most problems, however, the staff's bedside manner need improving.

There Really Is A Good Hospital

My daughter was rushed to North Fulton Regional Hospital in 2003. I received a call and took off to the hospital. Before this time, I knew nothing about them. She was in intensive care for a while and in a regular room as well. This hospital made a difficult time much easier to deal with. I remember when she had to have a blood transfusion. A nurse stayed with us for many hours. Their caring attitudes and sense of humor really helped her during her stay.
