When we found out that my wife was to have a historectomy, we were
worried about what could happen related to the procedure. All kinds of
thoughts were racing through our heads as we got closer to surgery day.
My wife is my life and I worry about her so much. I pictured a
complicated surgery and days of recovery in an uncomfortable recovery
room. We arrived at Lakeland Regional Medical Center early. We weren't
waiting long before the staff had us processed, checked in and ready to
roll. Dr.John Ellington met with family to thoroughly explain the
procedure, from the moment he walked in the room, we all knew that my
wife was in good hands. Dr. Ellingtons bed side manner, demeanor and
personality in concert with his knowledge and experience were a breath
of fresh air. In this modern world, it is good to know that there still
exists " Real" doctors. After the surgery we were taken to a room on
the fourth floor. I arrived shortly after my wife expecting a hustle,
bustle, high stress noisy working environment where the staff were just
to busy to actually care, only doing the minimum to not kill the
patient. This is what I've seen at so many other hospitals in the past.
What a surprise to see a group of real professionals at work. Led by
Joe, the head nurse, assisted by nurse Shay and Kiara, the night shift
made us feel like my wife was the only patient on the floor. They truly
cared about her, tending to every concern. It almost felt like we were
in a hotel and not a hospital. On the day shift Nurses Arlene and Bea
assisted by Judy made us feel like we were visiting with family as
opposed to being patient and spouse. Nurse Iwona was comforting and
professional on the night before our discharge. I had no idea that
this level of work ethic still existed, but it does and that is a
refreshing thing. My thanks to Doctor Ellington and the entire staff
that assist him with important work. Bless you all.

LRMC has made a lot of improvements. Our family member has been their twice in 2 years for serious medical problems. They had a lot of after surgery issues and first time was there for months. First time all of the nurses were great except 1 guess there's a bad apple in everything. As with all doctors some did not explain things or take up much time but others were great. Think the first surgeon during first stay messed up as had to repeat surgery several times and is no longer there, second time around surgeon was excellent. Food is good hospital in new area is clean old area is rather depressing tho. They are making great strides at LRMC. Had a family member go to Bartow one time would never ever go back there again. When you think of it the staff at hospitals deal with thousands of patients and I think they do a pretty good job considering.

I was hospitalized with c diff infection I can not complain about the care I received. My husband was hospitalized twice last year. Once for open heart surgery and I can not praise the staff enough for the care he received.

I was brought into emergency with a UTI . I was sent home to early still with the infection and no meds. I was back in emergency 2 days later. 2nd time in I did get meds. It was hard to get a nurse to come when I pushed the call button. It was crazy noisy at night very impossible to sleep. It felt dirty inside. I am home now still sick I also caught a lung infection while there. I would not recommend this hospital.

My recent stay at LRMC was an absolute nightmare. 6 hours in the ER on a gurney with no top sheet or blanket to keep warm with and to preserve my privacy as I was brought in wearing only shorts and a t-shirt. I was in such terrible pain that I threw up several times in to a very tiny little pink dish another person who was sitting in a chair along the same wall in the hallway I was at. When the lady doctor who I do not remember her name came around and told me to pee in a little jar. I tried to pee and could not. She came back and told me from the symptoms I have I am in pain from a urinary infection then she discharged me. I went home for a few hours. The pain was so bad my neighbor took me to Bartow. It took them about 30 minutes to inject me with some kind of dye and do a x-ray. The doctor(a cutie) showed me 4 little black things inside my kidney. He gave me a shot of something strong enough it made the pain go away. Perscription was picked up and the next day I passed all them.
