When TJ Bailey cut his knee playing Laser Tag, he called his dad to pick him up and they went to a nearby location to seek emergency care. After signing in and sitting down, they waited to be called…and waited. An hour and a half later, TJ's knee was still in need of medical attention. Not wanting to wait any longer, Rich drove TJ to Lodi Community Hospital. He dropped TJ off at the door and by the time he parked the car and went in, his son was already on a gurney being cleaned up and tended to. As he received his stitches, the staff kept him comfortable and calmly explained everything to ensure he understood. Within 40 minutes, they were in and out of the Emergency Department and on their way home.
When asked what he has to say about Lodi's Emergency Department, Rich said – "it was a great experience, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly, it's no wonder they win awards for patient satisfaction. I highly recommend Lodi Community Hospital's Emergency Department to anyone in the area."
