I was in the emergency room because of a eye bleed, the ER Nurse Practioner said it could be a mini stroke and said I needed a MRI, I said ok. She did the test, and told me I had a chronic sinus infection and a bleed in my brain I was terrified, because in may they said I may have had a stroke. She assured me it was not, but that it was a sign of dementia, I am 50, so I was devastated. She told me that odds were good I would be ok, I called my neurologist. only to find out it was a misdiagnosis. my tests were normal, and she did not do a MRI as stated but a Cat-scan also she took me off my lowdose asprin and put me on what she called a milder version of asprin, my cario dr said it was stronger than asprin. And if I did have a bleed in the brain it would be bad.

Details:

My father was a patient at this hospital in 2012. This was not the first time he had been there. Unfortunately, the care he received was disappointing. I agree with the previous comment about the nurses; however some nurses were very kind but others seemed rude and impatient. The therapy program was frustrating for my dad and us. While we liked the Occupation Therapists, the Speech Therapists and Physical Therapists leave a lot to be desired. They seem more concerned with the time and getting there quota of minutes then providing good care. We felt that most of the activities he did in therapy had little to no value. It was just to take up time. My dad had been at the hospital in 2005. The care he received from the nurses and therapists was great all the way around. The physical therapist he had then was great and easy to talk to. The speech therapist was also very sweet and knew what she was talking about. They both explained things to us and did activities that made sense. The care seemed a whole lot better at the old hospital. The new hospital looks nice, but the quality of the staff is not the same. We would no longer recommend this hospital to others.

Details:

I went to this hospital when I had my stroke in 2011. I had trouble walking, eating, and doing things for myself. I was disappointed with the overall care I received. I had to usually wait a long time before a nurse answered my call bell. They seemed all most irritated that I was interrupting them with my problem, like going to the bathroom!. Speech therapy was a joke. The therapist tried to be nice but she wasn't very knowledgeable and seemed like she didn't know what to do for me.. She had a hard time answering my and my families questions. She also had trouble explaining what she was doing and how it was suppose to help me. Fortunately, I went to another hospital where they found out what was really wrong with my swallow and knew how to treat it. Now I can eat and drink whatever I want. Physical therapy was OK. I didn't care too much for the person who did my evaluation. She seemed rushed and didn't have much time to answer questions. I didn't see her after the first visit. The assistant therapists I saw later were much nicer and seemed to care. They were very nice and pleasant to talk with. Another bright spot was my doctor and his staff. They said they were aware of the problems with some of the nurses and therapists and suggested I go to another facility for my rehab program. I'm so glad I did just that. I don't think I would have been able to return home if I had stayed at the McConnellsburg Hospital. I won't go back to Fulton County Medical Center if I have something serious going on. I definitely won't be going there if I have another stroke!
