EVERYTHGING AT VANDERBILT HOSPITAL IS GREAT WITH ONLY TWO EXCEPTIONS. FIRST LET ME ADD THAT THE NURSES OF THE 6TH FLOOR ROUND WING WHERE MOST OF THE ORTHOPEDIC PATIENTS ARE, HAS THE BEST THEREIS THE BEST THERE WAS AND THE BEST THERE EVER WILL BE NURSING STAFF. ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO COMMENT ON THE ORTHOPEDIC TRAUMA DOCTORS THERE, THEY ARE SUPERB, THE BEST, ESPECIALLY DR. WILLIAM TODD OBREMSKEY, F.NP. JULEANNE HUTCHERSON, THEY WHERE AND STILL ARE MY DOCTORS, THEY ARE THE BEST THERE IS THE BEST THERE WAS AND THE BEST ORTHOPEDIC DOC'S THERE EVER WILL BE. THE ONLY TWO GRIPES I HAVE ABOUT THE HOAPITAL IS THIS, THE FOOD NEEDS TO BE MORE AREA ORIENTATED, FOR EXAMPLE' A CATFISH MEAL, A TRADITONAL SOUTHERN CATFISH MEAL COMES WITH CATFISH, COLESLAW,HUSHPUPPIES, AND WHITE BEANS (GREATNORTHERN), THE WAY WAS SERVED CATFISH DINNER WAS WITH THE CHOICE OF CATFISH, (HARD AS A ALCATRAZ ROCK, A CHOCIE OF VEGITABLES, NO BEANS, ROLLS (NO hp) ETC....., GET IT RIGHT MAKE THE FOOD WORTH EATING AND WARMER NOT STONE COLD. THE OTHER LARGE COMPLAINT I HAVE IS THE TELEVISION PROGRAMMING. THERE IS NO, NONE, NADA, SLITCH, GODD TV PROGRAMS , MOST OF THE PROGRAMMING IS C#@*^, TO BE PERFECTLY HONEST AS MUCH MONEY AS WE THE PAITENTS PAY THE HOSPITAL FOR OUR STAY THEY WOULD GET SOME GOOD TV PROGRAMMING, AFTER ALL WHEN YOUR IN THE HOSPITAL YOU DO USUALLY ONE OF TWO THINGS IF YOUR UNABLE TO GET UP AND THAT'S SLEEP OR WATCH TV. OTHER THAN THAT VANDERBILT IS GREAT. THANKS BBJ

I am uninsured and suffer from complex ptsd. Ive needed medical services from the ER at Nashville General. I was not expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I was seen and how good the care was. I remember when I had insurance and went to fancy hospitals, the experience was actually not as good. I recommend this hospital for both the insured and uninsured alike. I mainly saw Dr. Bullock and I found her to be very courteous and knowledgable. The only downside is that you will occasionally see interesting characters in the waiting room but they are harmless and security is available so I think the visit is still well worth it.
My son had a gash across his leg that became infected the day after he got 10 stitches, so we had to rush him here (this was the summer when the flesh eating bacteria was causing people to lose limbs). The ER was very slow. He had to wait for 6 hours before they told us he needed surgery. However, once he was admitted and after his surgery (he was there 5 days) I was very pleased. The nurses were great, and the doctors were very calm and caring. I felt that he was being properly cared for, and I would definitely take him back.
