Are they idiots? I've never seen such a low level of care & inconsideration.My daughter went there with swollen glands, sore throat and high fever. The Nurse Practicioner came in (not a doctor), looked in her mouth and walked right out. She said it was strep but didnt do a strep test. Gave her a prescription for Amoxicillin. No shot..Nothing to bring the fever down. Sent her home. I called to ask why she wasnt given a shot or fever meds and the receptionist called back & said her fever wasnt high enough..it was 103.4 at home & 102.8 when she got back. Said they only like to give tylenol if the fever is over 101..WTF..Her neck was swollen twice the size and she was in alot of pain too. Isnt Tylenol also pain meds? Anyway..about the shot she could have got and helped out quicker..The N.P. LIED and said she offered one to her but she turned it down.!!! Can you believe she would lie like that?!!! She was never offered a shot..nothing!! Well here is the icing on the cake....After 6 days of high fever and pain and complete exhaustion all the while taking the antibiotics, she went back to the ER. An actual doctor ran some tests on her and she has Mono!! Very scary and could be dangerous. She has missed nearly two weeks of school. IF the N.P. would have caught it the first time around at the ER she would have had different treatment & meds and felt better. So, people...when someone says a Nurse Practicioner is about the same as a doctor, remember this true story and you do the math!! Screw SOMC!!!!!!!!!!

I went while I was pregnant bleeding heavily and told them I thought I was having a miscarriage. HOURS later I noticed people that had come in a very long time after I did were being taken back. I went up and looked at the sign-in sheet, and my name had been marked out. When I pointed this out, and said I had been sitting there for hours thinking I'm having a miscarriage, they actually yelled at me for looking at the sign-in sheet. They are very lucky my child was OK.

First of all I would like to reply with the woman that brought her child in with a fever and swollen throat! You should have never been treated like that and I really find it hard to believe that a nurse prac did any of that ! And second of all why didnít you give your child any Tylenol or Motrin? Did u give your child plenty of liquids and rest or did you just want the hospital to give a ďSHOTĒ that always fixes everything! Doesnít it well a little advice go to medical school or even nursing school! Then argue what the treatment was and if my child was that sick I would have taken them to their pediatrician!!!! So actually you certainly donít make mother of the year if that much time went buy why didnít you take your child to a different hospital? Or at least ask to see only a DR! And 2nd the lady that was bleeding I truly feel bad that you had that experience and really glad all was ok for you but if you didnít notice that your name was called you should have ask they call names all the time and people are in the bathrooms or getting them something to drink/eat (and if you are doing that should you really be in the ER)!! Or perhaps you were many that were smoking someplace! this isnít the hospitals fault and I will tell you that they took very good care of my family there donít know how the nurses are able to deal with all that comes in there from what I seen they do an awesome Job ! And all that thinks KDMC or other hospital are better well go there is what I say! Iím here to tell you it happens in all hospitals because we have idiots that run to the ER like itís their family DR HELLOOOOOOOO just because you have a medical card doesnít give you the right to jump in front of people that are truly dying that cant breath and have no pulse! So think about it at least youíre well enough to get on here and complain! Iím sure that neither of you came in contact with one caring individual did you! Yea Right!

I'll tell you what is wrong. It is the people who have the medical card and don't have to pay for anything. Sitting in the ED lobby you don't see the people the squads are bringing in. What you do see is people going outside to smoke and suck down their mountain dew but are too sick to do anything. The working class can't go to the hospital cause they actually have to work and pay for the welfare to go and try to get their "meds". Yes there are things that get missed as I am sure happens at all hospitals. Get a family doctor and leave the ER for what it was designed for ...EMERGENCIES.

Well, Dear, no I did not at ANY time leave the room. I did not go outside, to a snack machine, or even to the restroom. I sat in the waiting room crying and waiting with my mother, so your assumption was wrong and the not-so-nice way you said everything complete with many exclamation points that when reading translates to me as yelling at me was really uncalled for.
Here is an idea

I suggest we take a poll on the street. Ask random folks over a period of say one month as to get a large sampling.

I will bet money that the OVER WHELMING opinion will be that SOMC is one of the worse hospitals with some of the biggest quacks working it in this country!

Why is that?

Everyone knows this EASY one.

BECAUSE IT IS TRUE! DUH!

To all the hospital employees crying here. GO SOAK YOUR HEADS!

Or better yet, get a job at Walmart where you can't do so much damage to innocent folks.

If I went and got a job at Walmart, I couldn't pay for all you welfare sitting here complaining about how the hospital didn't kiss your ass when you came in. Sorry.

Wow! I'm on welfare? I wasn't aware of this! I guess I'll tell my husband he doesn't have to work tonight or ever. He can quit working all that pesky overtime, quit paying the mortgage and we can move into public housing!

How absurd to assume that because someone expresses their unhappiness when someone screws up that they are on welfare and to try to place the blame on the person who did nothing wrong. People never cease to amaze me.
sure do

Here is what I want to know, I'm not on welfare and went there to take my wife because she was sick. We got treated like welfare and still waited two hours to be seen. I know that it is full of welfare people, but where does the working people with real insurance got to be treated? EMT... Where do we go, do we have to call a damn ambulance????

I really don't care if you believe me or not. It happened...just how I said it did. It's idiot people such as yourself that THINK they "know the facts", that keep our quality of care at a minimum..simply by defending their bullshit. NOW..tell me the so called facts..I never said the word "child". I said my daughter..who happened to turn 18 just yesterday. Now why would a nearly 18 year old have a pediatrician? Oh..you got your "facts" wrong huh? And you call me a bad mother? Do you know me? NO!! OK..more wrong FACTS. Did I say I didn't give her tylenol?...hmmmm...no..you did!! OH..and you say I'm getting a medical card...wow..what a goober you are...LOL.. I see the only lies being spread here are yours. Now thats a FACT for ya!! You are precisely what is wrong with Portsmouth..you belong here..embrace your hospital...you may one day be at their mercy....LOL..........

Ignore the idiots that are posting that obviously work at SOMC and are the pieces of crap you are talking about. They are posting in an attempt to cover their rears. People who do evil things like these quacks, SOMC administrators and "some" of the clueless nurses always get angry and spiteful when their wrong doings are pointed out!
All NON- SOMC employed folks know the truth about how basd this place is. EVEN MANY NURSES that work there will admit off the record what a toilet it is.
HEY, this is Portsmouth, what do you expect?
Go to Kings Daughter, Cincinnati or OLB and seek treatment.
SOMC is a great place to be killed by quacks who consistently misdiagnosis people.
A FACT!
