I had to go here to go back to school, they are nice.
My experience at this hospital was hell on earth. The only reason it gets 3 stars is because they did save my life and diagnose me correctly. I had A LOT of people praying for me, too! The hardest part for me was the black people are so rude and I felt like 75% of them were racist. It works both ways yes I am white! I am not racist but the chips on their shoulders made me want to be. I also felt like I was trapped there and it was a freaky experience for me. I was given a lot of Seroquel while I was there and I know when I first got there I was hallucinating, but it was a traumatic experience for me. I was there in 2012 and my meds have worked since. I have Bipolar Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder. Like I said I’m grateful to God for being with me there and helping me get the help I needed and the diagnosis, but some of those people DO NOT need to be working there. Go get a job at Walmart or something if you don’t have love, patience, kindness and compassion in your heart as a nurse or any other medical profession. Your patients are sick, vulnerable and frightened COMFORT THEM PLEASE!! If you can’t HELP THEM DON’T HURT THEM!!.. with your attitude and hateful words. Treat them the way you would want to be treated if you lost your mind for a little while. Thank-you! 🙏❤️
I'm going to give 2 perspectives of this hospital from a parent perspective and from a child perspective (15 yr old) My perspective the hospital is unorganized my son was admitted from a children's hospital. The 1st, 24 hours no one contacted me about the process I had to go online to find the policies and procedures. Day 2 his Dr. contacted me via text message and asked me to download a messenger app. that his prefers to use**please know this is not the standard practice for any of the staff just his preference** now here us where it gets crazy I received 1 call from a counselor regarding his progress and 6 calls from nurses to consent to medication. No one keep you in the loop of your child's progress so don't wait for them to call you call them. The worst was the visitation on Saturday the older Caucasian receptionist was overwhelmed, however she was friendly and nice given the circumstances and alone trying to get over 20 people registered to see their family members there are 4 sections of the hospital with the same visitation day. Visition is from 6pm to 7:30pm there wasn't a room for us to visit they finally brought the kids to us at 6:45pm and didn't extend the time due to them being unprepared. tuesday visitation day the black receptionist was rude and short when I questioned the policies. Now from my son's perspective he stated his 1st day he was left alone for awhile upon his initial admissions, it took awhile for him to be placed in his room (there are 2 kids per room) there was a fight doing dinner between 2 kids. He stated the staff was nice. Dinner is serviced a 5:30pm which is early to me. *Please note you can bring your kid clothes, books to read and cards* no one tell you this however unless you ask. Check your kids personal items upon discharge just because they say it's there please check. I have 3 stars because of my son's view. From a parent view it would have been 1. Praying we don't have to visit this place again.
If there’s anything I know about Anchor, it’s that it’s staff is 100% committed to patient care and safety. They strive for excellence in making sure patients have the most effective and efficient care possible while they’re recovering.
After reading all the negative reviews of this facility I had to post my recent experience at Anchor Hospital. These reviews are far from the truth. From the moment I was admitted I was greeted with warm smiles in a non-judgmental attitude from the staff. They made me feel like I was important and they honestly went the extra mile to make sure my needs were met. The nursing staff was always pleasant and very knowledgeable about any questions I asked concerning my medications. From my admission to my discharge I truly felt that I made the right decision to choose Anchor Hospital. And a big thank you to all the therapists. You guys rock!!! I will forever take the skills you taught me there and use them in my everyday life. Thank you for making my stay a rewarding one and making a difference in my recovery.
It was far from perfect. This place was some sort of cross between a nursing home and a prison. I can't speak for all of the units, but mine had some people who definitely weren't getting the treatment they needed. It was extremely hard to get ahold of a doctor or social worker, and getting discharged from the place was such a difficult process. Also, only two days of the week allowed visitation, and naturally they don't allow you to have your phone or any of your possessions for that matter. However, the caring staff redeem this place. Emmanuel and Mary in particular deserve commendation, along with some other staff members who's names I can't remember... Your experience will vary depending on which unit you're in and what kind of people your fellow patients are, but all I can tell you is to be patient and to trust the process.
Kudos for the staff at Anchor Hospital! While few people ever WANT to be admitted to a mental health or addiction hospital, whenever I have referred people in crisis I've been impressed with the caring staff and their sincere desire to help patients heal.
Great staff and overall great program. The nurses and technicians were very attentive towards patient needs. They were punctual about me getting my medication and vitals done even when I forgot - the staff really put a lot of care and effort into keeping up with each patient. The cooks even put a lot of care into the food
