Emergency Room Visit: Go elsewhere if possible. I went in with a fractured bone in my hand and left with same injury, UNTREATED and UNDOCUMENTED in my medical records. My hand and arm was swollen and purple. I was asked how the injury occurred by several nurses, doctors and the social worker, as it was obviously injured. My hand was not x-rayed, attended to or documented in my medical records. I was in their care from 3:30pm to 9:30pm on a Monday. BEWARE you will not receive adequate care. It's worth the trip to anywhere else to receive the quality care you or your family deserve. This will always only be a small town hospital.
