Partial disclosures cast doubt on the credibility of the charge.
I agree !!

It is nice to hear that so many people like TVRH. They are very excited about the expansion.
However,I still have concerns for staffing this hospital. It remains under staffed -due to call out with personnel and no personnel scheduled for a particular unit.
I know that Waterman Hospital just offered "bonus" to nurses up to 10,000 over a 2 year period and many left TVRH for that bonus and also received increase in pay.
My concern that the hospital will continue to have negative reviews with under staffing or over working each unit. It seems the ER has the worst review-as this is where 90% of all patients enter through this department.
Every hospital will have the good and bad reviews. You have patients/people who will complain in general every day of their life. You need to go to the closest hospital during a medical emergency. Trust me when I say- IF you are having a medical emergency you need a MD to assist you. Driving in a car to a hospital farther away -is a risk-so good luck!!!! If you are picked up by EMS and you ARE HAVING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY (in caps because many don't use EMS for that reason or visit an ER for a medical emergency) you will be taken to the nearest hospital.
No matter where you choose to go--be an advocate for yourself and if you can't have a family member.
As far as the primary care doctor not knowing you were in the hospital? I know that is incorrect. All ERs call the PCP to have the patient admitted under PCP choice-who covers them in the hospital. It is the PCP who blamed the hospital, which is giving the hospital the bad reputation. You know- the blame game- oh I didn't know you were there.
As far as the information not going to the floor regarding patient transfer from ER? Most hospitals give nurse/nurse report or written report. If a floor nurse didn't know when a patient was not last medicated- for a patient (who diagnosis was indeed more likely having pain than not)--it is the floor nurse who should find out prior to medicating patient.
Good luck in your choice!!

Question about part of your statement. If your primary care doctor does not have privileges at the hospital what happens then? It is my understanding that the doctors working in The Villages medical offices DO NOT have admitting privileges at TVRH.

My primary care doctor does not have privileges, but he has a doctor partner who does.

Patient satisfaction ratings for TVRH are lower than both state and national averages.

As others have said, TVRH is a smallish community hospital and we should have realistic expectations of them. Sounds like the doctor at Shands was being an academic elitist as well as indulging in hyperbole. I had good experiences at TVRH with excellent surgical and medical outcomes. We need to be our own medical care advocates wherever we go, and that includes large teaching hospitals.

We have to remember that TVRH is only 12 years old (young as hospitals go). They are constantly adding specialties (as they are able to attract MDs , etc to run them) and have come a long way in spite of much opposition from nearby hospitals. As we all know, they are expanding again to better serve the community. Their ratings are constantly improving and are beginning to stack up respectably to well established hospitals. I have been a patient there several times and was very happy with results. One last thing, if they were able to recognize their current limitations and recommended a better suited hospital it speaks volumes about them to me.

I am moving to the Villages next week for up North and need an urgent care center that can remove stitches from my foot. I also need a primary Dr. Can anyone recommend anything ? They must accept Medicare insurance.
Thanks !

Lake Regional Urgent Care on Old Camp in Sumter Landing is very good. Also Paramount Urgent Care on 466 just a little ways before Rolling Acres. I have been to both many times.
