I went there after an assault with bb gun wounds. The examination and treatment were quite thorough. However, I have IBS, and they didn't pay attention when I asked them repeated for a bedpan for the diarrhea brought on by anxiety. After examination and treatment, I was placed in a room with a door but was never taken from the emergency room to the trauma unit, as they didn't have a bed. There was a TV high up but no remote, so I asked for reading material, which would have distracted me and reduced anxiety. I never got it. As my cellphone had been stolen in the assault, I had to use a nurse's phone to reach friends, after which I lay all night with no bedding other than a bloody blanket (my blood). Those who took care of my during the night were not very prompt in arriving, although they were kind. I think this emergency room is understaffed. The worst thing, though, is that no one informed me or my primary care physician that one bb remained in my hand. I discovered it 2 months later when I picked up my medical records for the court case and read them. I was then able to have hand surgery to correct the mysterious pain I had been experiencing.

The ER staff at Howard resuscitated my wife after she went into Septic Shock. Her vitals crashed but they managed to save her life. There is no rating for saving a human life.
