Only go there if you want to be more of a mess than when u went in. They hire horrible nurses that wear scrubs you don't know if they are a nurse or housekeeping that is suppose to be cleaning the room. There are just plain stupid. However there are some wonderful nurses at RGH and I hate to start a post because they are not all horrible. All I am saying is that there needs to be a better atmosphere in that hospital. One last thing great nurses from RGH your patients are not stupid! No need to throw a temper when there is something you don't want to do or god forbid a RGH nurse not understand something! You took an othe you need to go read it and start acting like a nurse

My youngest daughter was on the peds floor for 8 days....the doctors and nurses were awesome !! It was our first stay there, our room was clean and could not ask for better nurses. They brought her crayons and coloring books and really kept me informed of what was going on. I hate that you had a bad experience.

Are you a nurse? I do not work there but I did get an interview a few weeks ago, a hospital is only as good as the people they have working for them, maybe they need to be re trainned, or replaced. But they could not be stupid it takes alot of schooling and trainning and then the state boards which are really hard. I hope the next time that you go there you have a good exepierence.Everyone should be treating with kindess and respect.

All these nurses that have this problem have a paid for-by the state education, and have good jobs, but they never changed their- depending on the state ways. This is our states pride of putting them to work. And that is what the patient taxpayer gets. A nurse with a first rate education from the state, and is also a nurse that could care less. If you to the second and fourth floor nursing stations its gossip city. Its a drama fest of nurses talking about each other, and how they do their jobs instead of working together."Oh I don't want to be here." " I can't stand him or her." "Cody has the flu" "My boyfriend or girlfriend won't work and he or she treats me so bad." The gossip goes on. The patien is there for rest, not a nurse that has a dirty uniform and hadn't brushed their teeh in two days. You won't see this on the third floor peds and OB. They are the best. You need to go to Charleston for everything else.

I personally wouldn't take my dog to RGH. After an accident last summer that was bad enough to require ICU, a nurse told my husband she could lose her job for saying this, but he needed to have me moved out of that hospital. He did. At the hospital I was sent to, the med staff there informed my husband that RGH had totally misdiagnosed the problems I had and would continue to have based on my injuries. If I had been left at RGH I would probably not be here today!

Every time I've had to go to the RGH ER I get treated like a total 2nd class citizen. Yes I have tatoos, yes I have piercing. That does not mean that I am a pill head. I am not in any way, shape or form. But from the minute I walk in the door, whether I have broken something, or bleeding I get looked at with suspicion that I'm there just for some pain meds. I don't appreciate it at all. I go to a hospital generally because I've had an accident or am in pain and need help. I ripped a muscle in my calf a couple months ago and didn't even get and xray or anything more than someone feeling my leg, giving me crutches and an ace bandage and sent home. Nice.

Up until the past three or four years every nurse and doctor I had was terrific, but here lately it is terrible. When I go there and tell them of my heart problem (it is a common problem too) they look at me as if I've lost my mind and then ask me to explain the issue.
The only doctor up there that is worth anything is Dr. Rodney Jarrell. He is kind, has a wondeful bedside manner, and goes the extra mile for each of his patints.

Had to go there today for a procedure it was suppose to be a very simple procedure. However.... Of course it was long drawn out and full of drama. I have the best doctor in the entire world but I hate it when he tells me I have to have something done at the hospital. Just wish we had a good option to choose from in Beckley but we don't at all. Common sense would go so far but oh well that seems to not be any up there. I hate to write this when there are some excellent nurses and registration staff but the bad so far out numbers the good. Wish someone would make some changes maybe starting with getting rid of karen bolen??? If the person that is suppose to be the leader is weak and lacking it is no wonder their company is horrible. The lack of care at raleigh general is a direct reflection of the poor way the employees are treated! Need to make changes ASAP!

What do you mean, "everytime I've had to go to the ER"? Most people don't have repeat ER trips unless they are pill seekers.
Perhaps you are setting a precedence for yourself and it's not actually your appearance.
