I'd stay far, far away from Gordon Hospital if possible. The same hospital that misdiagnosed my son's hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and sent him home to die because they couldn't make any money off a poor young man. He went to the ER complaining of chest/left arm pain and had high blood pressure, the dumbass doctor(Stern?) told him it was indigestion. He died in his sleep from sudden cardiac arrest, his heart stopped beating. If their is a God and he is just, all you 7th Day Adventists will burn in hell for avarice(greed).

Gordon Hosptial is directly responsible for my son's death. ER Department personnel too stupid to do depression screening. My son was crying out for mental health help which he did not get from Gordon Hosptial. My son went to Gordon Hosptial 3 times during week of Dec .12-16, 2011. My son committed suicide on Dec. 26, 2011. Adventists do not believe in mental health.

Yes, they do hire SDA people as much as possible. They just brought in an R.N. from California to be director of nurses.She has proceded to get rid of the more experienced and locally based nurses. They all say she has a bad additude, and doesn't seem to care about the local community. You would think management would like to inspire better relations to improve their standing in the community.

If you want to blame someone then YOU are more responsible than anyone else for his death. YOU KNEW he was desperate yet you blame others who didn't know him like you did.
He set himself free,let him go.

I would encourage anyone with a bad experience to take the issue to Administration for investigation. There are alot of employees here that strive to provide the best patient care possible. If we don't know what is broken we can't fix it.

So your son was "doubled over in pain" and you didn't even bother to see another doctor or go to another hospital?!! Either you are lying,or if telling the truth should have your kid taken from you for child abuse.Maybe they should have drug tested you.
My son was 20 and yes he went to another doctor only to find out he had fluid built up and inflammation. Now who is the idiot!!! YOU

Now wait:you said your son was a teenager in the original post.Now you say he's 20.News flash:twenty isn't a teenager.So now we know who the idiot is (and who's a liar).The hospital should have drug tested you instead of him.He probably just acts like a druggie due to the mental retardation passed along to him through your genes.

He was 19 in July of last year in August he turned 20.So don't flap your "jaws" about nothing you don't understand. People like you just want to start mouthing-off. And NO I'm not on drugs actually I was on leave from the military, home to see family. This is about a BAD experience at the hospital. So get over yourself...

no matter where you go...there are going to be nasty people. That is not a reflection of the business as a whole. I think we all can agree if we used our common sense.

Two posts above you say "My son was 20",not "my son was 19,18,12,10 or 40.You're lying.You got caught.This happens on occasion to people that lie.It just happened to you.Don't be all pissed at for real idiot.He simply pointed out the facts.Quit lying,and people will quit calling you a liar.Simple,really.

my grandson who is 2 1/2 yrs old was taken to gordon hospital er on sept 28 2013 with a severe headache and fever, they tested him for strep throat and the flu, but sent him home before the results was back and didn't even give him anything for his headache or fever. i did some research online about toddlers that have headaches and what i found just goes to prove that the doctors at gordon hospital are idiots. there was a list of possibilities that can be wrong with my grandson from migraines to brain tumors and they didn't care enough to get to the bottom of the problem. well i can tell you this the administration will be notify of this and if he has anything serious wrong with him they will pay dearly. it makes my blood boil the way he was treated by their staff of so call doctors.

Actually,there could be thousands of potential reasons.Were you willing to stay for the 3 weeks and hundreds of thousands of dollars of tests to see what the result was? The kid wasn't given anything for fever? What's the problem? Can't you afford Tylenol and Motrin yourself? Where was the childs mother? Off on another crank binge? How about the father? Oh,ya'll aren't sure who that is,huh? Get yourself checked for a brain tumor.Maybe it will explain your idiot comments.

My wife and I have had two very healthy boys at this hospital. The quality of care from the staff is beyond remarkable. They were always attentive and helpful. They mad the process very easy and were always there to answer the onslaught of questions we had with a newborn. I also had to go to the ER once and was taken care of promptly and was treated well. People in the medical profession do not get enough credit for the work they perform and the stupid people they have to deal with on a daily basis.

What are you saying? "The Hispanics". Get an education please! You sound so ignorant !

yall can try to justify and talk good ol gordon hospital up but EVERYONE knows how it is. I would rather go to a freakin vet than to have to be seen by those [email protected] I recently had a personal experience with them and if they would have DONE THEIR JOB this person might still be here today but THEY DIDNT!!! They were Neglected and sent home AND IT IS THIER fault they knew( hell anyone with a brain) could obviously tell they shouldnt have been released!!! Its very possible the outcome wouldve been different if they would have been doing their jobs instead of tryin to cover their butts UP!!
