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.

In dealing with the nurses at Lakeland Regional I have found that while they seem pleaant they do NOT commincate positive outlooks on patients

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.
