Default Leesburg Hosp vs TV Hospital

Just came back from Leesburg Hosp after a cardiac scare, workup- I was in TV Hosp 2 years ago for stroke symptoms--which were actually acconite poisoning

Story short--IMHO--if you are having a cardiac episode--DO NOT GO TO TV HOSPITAL--Leesburg is head & shoulders more classified to handle this type of emergency

Been to both

Not everyone. I had positive experience at TV. I believe it is luck of the draw, who is on duty at the time and time of the year. Every facility has patients with both positive and negative experiences. Generally the people with negative experience are more inclined to comment. I think this is in general true and am very skeptical when looking at on-line reviews of anything

Every hospital has a very good speciality dept. , was told TV hospital is not equipped for open heart surgery, so if you suspect you are having a cardiac issue, do one stop shopping--that is why I went to Leesburg--my neighbor had his by-pass done @ Leesburg

I was just going to post the same thing. I don't know about every hospital but some are definitely known for having expertise in specific areas of medicine. Speaking of Leesburg, I have a cousin who has had multiple cardiac issues and has also had very good results going there.

I went to The Villages Hospital with a possible cardiac episode. They checked me in right away and put me in a room. They first thing they did was give me an EKG. The person doing it didn't know how to use the machine and I sat there with chest pains for 45 minutes while she tried to figure it out. Finally someone came looking for me (I was in an isolated room where no one could see me). It took that nurse about 2 minutes to give me my test while the other girl stood there and watched. I could have died in that 45 minutes. From then on the care was fast but they missed the fact that I was actually having a diverticulitis attack and sent me home with no diagnosis after giving me a pain shot and fluids. It took about 6 hours.

These types of posts keep cycling through this social media site. With that in mind know that the hospitals here are considered small-town hospitals. Given the population (and it's flux with the seasons)---there will be a plethora of experiences.

We've had treatments at BOTH hospitals but prefer TVH. Our care has been good there (even in the ER with all it's foibles). Many folks use the ER as their clinic when they should have gone to their primary or Urgent Care instead, then complain because they had to sit for a long time. I don't go by what other's have experienced on social media sites since so many opinions "will be" varied.

If you had a bad experience at any hospital, be sure to let the CEO and the Board know about it. Enough complaints and they will eventually have to fix the problem.
