Disgusting filthy hospital/ER. From Athens, but had to go here (long story).Staff could not care less about you...ignored people coming in and seemed to be bothered when I asked questions as to where to go what to do upon arriving. Was told "not my problem" when tried to hand in registration form by the security woman...all she had to do was point me out to the correct location, not get ugly. The lady at "registration desk" ignored my for the longest and then snapped at me when asked if she had called my name (i guess I interrupted her primping and gossiping) and then disdainfully told me to sit down. Personnel at the nurses station by the ER rooms disrespectful and laughing joking and swapping risque stories LOUDLY like they were at some club outside of rooms. Examining room and absolutely FILTHY, but so was the lobby/ER waiting room. Lady who took my insurance info was half illiterate and could hardly type, and then gave me an earful of how horrible the management at this place was and how there is such a big turnover because they are sick and tired of it , blah blah blah something something.. WTF? Very unprofessional and uncaring, sloppy place. The only decent person was the triage news...sorry I did not get a name...she deserves a raise.She seemed to be the only one working or to give a flip....plus she actually deigned to talk to us like humans. We almost left and drove back to Athens for care. care time-11/21/13 7:30- 11:30 PM

Been waiting 9 hours for the hospital to transport my mom to a rehab center. Nobody cares and no one has an answer as to when it will happen. Now that I know how bad this hospital is, I wouldn't bring my dog here.
