This is a terrible hospital. My father did not receive proper care. The nursing staff did not check on him for 13 hours and by then he had a massive stroke.

Rare to have someone wash their hands, defensive when asking staff about that or to do something for a patient, told they are short staffed. Overly medicate elderly if any type of behavioral issue to make them zombies, instead of talking them through it. Put patients in bed and DO NOT take them out for days at a time. Force older people who walk to become wheelchair ridden and in diapers because they do not wan to toilet them. Too much work I guess. If you have a choice - go to Paul Kimball Hospital - it is far superior than Community. As for patient satisfaction, they will listen to you or read your letters, but NOTHING EVER CHANGES to make that hospital a clean safe environment!

Rude staff esp in emergency, difficult to obtain info in general, staff often do not wash hands, nurses can use more education, foreign doctors difficult to understand especially for seniors with hearing problems, dirty facilty in my experience, witnessed transporters pick up sheet from floor and make up a stretcher, saw a blood pressure cuff and call bells picked up from the floor and handed to patients in bed, my family member left the facility with open sores that they did not go in with, doctors rush to give antibiotics with each admission stating that my family member had an infection, never been able to confirm this, and the nurses had no clue as to why they were giving certain medications when I asked them. Other issues too many to mention. Beware of having your loved ones admitted without someone there daily to ask questions of the doctors and nurses!
