wondering who oversees the cleaning of these places are they people who are handicapped i mean cuz no one says anything to them...are they legally blind so they are pitied. i mean go to the hospital to get a blood workup or xray and come home and be sick three to five days later. not because you came into contact with a person just where they had been. comeone clean the place sanatizing your hands does not do the trick. its on everything.

My father died there due to NCH's staff negligance--he contracted MRSA due to their unsanitary practices. Three years later my mother died there in ICU because no one, not ever the doctors, knew what to do to save, and/or help her. My grandson, as a newborn, was given extensive tests, scaring the behebezzies out of all of us only because his blood work showed a problem. The problem surfaced as a comtamition during collection. Thank God he was okay, but the result didn't erase the numerous probes and pricks his young, delicate body endured only because someone 'messed-up'. How this hospital passes certification is beyond me. But, they are given notice when the officals are coming for inspection and have time to make things look right. I feel inspections should be unannounced--the officials show up and the games begin. That's how I would do it if I were in charge; but I'm not in charge so the charade continues. I despise this hospital.

I wouldn't say anything, but I took someone to the ER (a child) last month and had to wait a while. Which is a given there so I wasn't upset...BUT...we walked in our room when the nurse took us to it..the sheets on the bed were clearly soiled with some clear fluid as well as on the pillow and there was an empty package from a syringe or test tube or something on the counter. It was obvious the room had not been cleaned. You never know what the person before you has or has come in contact with and for a hospital to not disinfect and change sheets is disgusting. So we had to wait for someone to clean it AFTER we had to request it. The nurse clearly saw it had not been cleaned and did not offer to tell us to hold on or anything for the room to be cleaned. I understand being busy and all, but you cannot sacrifice safety and cleanliness in time management.

I took my wife to the ER. She had a high fever, chills, and had turned white. She could barely move. We waited for two hours. I took her to BSG. It turned out to be septicemia. She could have died if we stayed any longer.

The last couple of times I went I nearly froze to death waiting for hours upon end too! What is with the freezing temps in there? Are they just to cheap to have heat? There is only one doctor there that knows anything (the lady with strawbery blonde hair) and I can't remember her name. They never appear to be as busy as they say they are. And yes it is filthy there now! I decided to start going to St. Mary's and it isn't much either. Both of these used to be fairly decent hospitals for such a small area, what happened? Take me to Kingsport too!

They aren't the worst hospital there is. I would rather go to NCH than to Mountain View- talk about crap service.

To answer the question to why they keep it cold, its to help prevent bacteria from spreading, cuz the warmer it is the quicker it multiplys.. Granted they shouldn't worry because its so nasty up there, so by no means am I defending them, but a hospital espcially an ER should be kept pretty cold.....

. You guys need to stop complaining about how bad the hospitals are in Norton,at least you have a facility to go to in case of a emergency....true the cleanliness may be lacking ,and the doctors not as knowledgeable,but they can get the job done..Some rural areas in Southwest Virginia and north east Tennessee,even Kentucky..........have nothing...and must drive many miles and sometimes hours,to get to a hospital.Just be thankful for what you have,it could. Always be worse guys......

I don't see how this is even possible. I have done clinical rotations in larger hospitals in larger areas. Every one of them has been up to code. If a nurse/doctor is working and gets some sort of projectile on them, chances are they are most likely wearing a gown which is made available to them because they are kept in storage closets beside EACH and every room or at least within every few feet. A good nurse/doctor knows not to go around anyone with a major issue without being gowned and gloved. Whatever hospital you're going to, I'm sure those patients are aqcuiring nosocomial infections (hospital acquired) by the pure nastiness of the staff. NCH also has this material available, yet I know most of them do not utilize it. I have seen nurses and doctors go into rooms without gowns and without gloves. I have only seen this in smaller areas, larger areas seem to be more educated and follow guidelines. It only takes a few seconds to throw on a gown, especially if you're a doctor. If there's an emergency, all he/she has to do is throw it on b/c he can go straight to work while a nurse snaps/ties the gown in the back... I've seen it plenty of times. Any hospital that has stuff with common sense will do this, so I don't know where you've been going or in what city.

I don't see how people on the radio praise NCH. They are nasty. I lost my grandfather from their negligence in cleanliness.

its not the staff its the maintance people and what they use to clean with.. maybe they dont hire enough people of maybe they need to hire people who can get the work done i know ive seen a lot of the cleaning staff who are welll over 60 and be honest they dont clean the way they used to cant climb cant bend etc..yeah change ..early retirement maybe..went into the downstairs bathroom in the er at lonesome pine and looked around from a sitting postition and well saw cobweb after cobweb now granted that can happen over nite but these had dust balls in them and i dont think that is an added feature of the spider just saying ..clean better. the walls are white wipe them down spray and wipe equipment and furniture ohh well who cares its just money ohh i was talking about calif., ny and chicago hospitals been in all of them at one time or another..pretty rough with gsw all the time...
