Family member was admitted to this hospital three times in one week. She was misdiagnosed the first two times. The ER was extremely slow and inefficient. One time she was waiting for a pain pill six hours after arriving. I checked and was told she could not receive the medication until one test was completed and the test had not been scheduled.

I took my son to this hospital in Jan 2011. He was 6 and he was having his first asmtha attach. I didnt know what it was...all I knew is that my child couldnt breathe. It is teriifying!!!!! The ER doctor immediately released us saying that he had a chest cold. I couldnt believe it. We went home and sat and in the shower hoping the steam would clear his chest. My husband checked the WebMD and realized he was having a asthma attach. I called the our pediatrian and he recommended going to Lakeland Regional for treatment because he too didnt recommend the Heartless of Florida. I litterally live 1 mile away so I went back to the same hospital only because it was closer. The ER doctor this time gave him a steriod shot and immediatley my son could breathe. He suffered for 10 hours because the first ER doctor could not have cared less. There are more detailes but the fact is..... DO NOT TAKE ANY LOVED ONES THIS HOSPITAL!!!! I thank God my son is OK now and I hope this story will help someone else.

Because of this hospital I have creditors calling and harassing me every day. I gave the first creditor that called my credit card and said make this go away. Well two years later they are back saying I owe them more money because of this one horrible hospital visit. DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSPITAL.

If you have to, bribe your ambulance driver to bypass this hospital. Try to get to a hospital in Orlando. Worst experience ever in a hospital.

You are left in your room to fend for yourself. I was there for 4 days and only one nurse ever listened to my heart and lungs or did any sort of assessment. My discharge instructions were not what the doctor told me. They were very generic. I never recieved a list of the medications I was suppose to take when I was discharged. They change the patients gown across the hall and I could see her breast. They never even shut her door. I just felt that I would have been better off just being at home. I am not sure what they did that I couldn't have done for myself or with a home health nurse. VERY SAD!!
