I was having a mini stroke and they had gave me 4 chewable aspirin and in a ct scan with in 10-15 minutes of my arrival and kept me over night to make sure everything was good. I am greatful that this hospital is so close to my home. I let my family know if ever I need help again for them to make sure they take me to Bethesda.👍
They take such good care of you there. Such professionals.
I left Bethesda Butler Hospital $1366.00 later with blood work results and a script for an anti-inflammatory med. A week later I still had the pain behind my knee I went to the ER for. My regular doctor solved my problem with a script for $7.00 worth of steroids and no office visit. I guess I should be grateful they reduced my bill to $888.00 because I don't have insurance. I have to add that the ER bill was in my mailbox before the pain was gone in my leg! I'll know if I'm eligible for financial aid in 3 months. That department is running a little behind. SMH
Went to the ER on a Friday for knee pain and I was sent home with anti-inflammatory meds. 1 week later and I'm still in pain. The staff was fantastic and the doctor was patient and helpful, but that was an expensive visit to still have to see another doctor to get the issue resolved. Calling the hospital resulted in a polite, "Sorry for your luck come back through ER if you want another diagnosis."
Went to the ER for my back, have done it before due to it being chronic. The first 2 nurses took my info and vitals, very quick to the point didn't let me explain my issue. I only saw the doctor once just before leaving and all he talked to me about is why they aren't giving me a script for pain meds, this is after having 3 shots and me telling him I'm still in pain and it didn't work. The nurse did the same thing pretty much pushed me out the.door while I'm saying I'm still in pain. They did no imaging or investigating into why I'm still hurting, just here bye call your doctor. Would not recommend to anyone who is actually in pain, they just assume you're lying, #1 thing I was taught as a nurse was to believe the patient unless given a reason and to not be judgmental. Maybe if you go during the day you MIGHT get better care.
