I was very disappointed in my visit to the er tonight. I went in with shingles and the doctor brushed me off and never checked me out. Treated me like I was a drug seeker. I was never so humiliated in my life. I was sent home in 5 minutes with a paper on headaches. I will never return to this facility.

This is the worst hospital in Beaver county. Please make the effort and go into Pittsburgh for your care. The quality of care is so horrible, I cannot even tell you. The doctors never come to talk to you, the nurses lie and say they are not in the hospital, and then the nurses refuse to share information with what is right on the charts. A 95 year old women was admitted after foot surgery due to numbness on one side. After 5 days of testing and extreme pain in the foot, a foot doctor finally came to look at her foot only to see that the toe where the surgery was performed was now completely black and gangrenous. She had to have the toe removed and ended up dying within 2 months because of multiple infections to the affected area. The nurses kept telling her that because she was admitted due to the numbness, they refused to look at her foot. She then fell out of the bed onto her head and the nurse said the bed rails were up. No way.
