In September of 2012, my mother fell and fractured her hip.  She was brought to the ER at Centra State where she was treated by a caring and friendly staff.  It took quite a bit of time for them to find a bed for her after it was determined that she should be admitted.  We arrived at the ER in the early afternoon and she was finally moved to a room at about 10 PM.  After a couple of days in the ho...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I've had mixed experiences at Centra State, and with 5 seniors in the family who live in the area we use the facility often. This review is of our experience with my 86 year old mother who fractured her hip in September of 2012 and it was quite good.  I hope this is a sign that they're improving.  I'll provide a bit of detail about a very negative experience we had several years ago as well since I think it's helpful to know the range.

The technicians couldn't get a good picture and exposed him to radiation for no reason. As a first-time mom and no...

We had to wait for 35 minutes before being seen by a pediatric triage nurse. We were then brought into the ER and were seen by a nurse practitioner and then finally brought for x-rays. We then waited for the results. All in all, we were finished in 2 hours. Wonderful by most ER standards.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Admitted my son to perform some x-rays on a head injury.
