Friendly staff, always prompt with appointments. Lab is quick and close to home. Great little country hospital and improving all the time. Fund raisers: Foundation and Auxiliary have very hard working members. Without them our hospital would be very much different !!
This is the third time I have been to sanpen emergency. I can't speak positively enough about how I was received , treated and later discharged. Both doctors and nurses were caring, attentive and professional in their approach. We need more emergency departments like this everywhere.
The hospital was and is poorly equipped and most of the staff are rude and uncaring! The hospital use outside contracted family Drs and or trainee doctors who are not competent nor knowledgable! Beware when they choose to retain the patient as they will inject patient with opiods to control them and not provide any nutrition so the patient would not have a fighting chance to get out alive!
I have had to go to San Penn on more than one occasion, and was treated the same way each time - disregard and as others have mentioned, as though I was bothering the receptionist. But one time, with a potentially life-threatening reaction after being stung twice by wasps, the receptionist told me to sit down and wait showning no regard for my shortness of breath and nearly my whole body covered in huge welts. I had to nearly scream at her to get me immediate attention. If you can get to Victoria, it has to be a better option. Nothing seems to get fixed with this problem.
I went down to visit my brother who is a patient at 8:30 pm last night and the receptionist in emergency was in the far back of the emergency talking to another staff member an totally ignored me and another man who was injured and had been waiting a half hour and nobody talked to him so he went through the hallway doors to the back of reception area and told them we need help so she finally came up and talked to me but was snarky.
