Peachford Hospital / religious discrimination/unprofessional

jboog178 on Jul 23, 2013
My cousin was a patient here and she was discriminated against because of her religious formality. She was there 3 days and wasn't approached until the 3rd day to remove her hijad (Muslim head dress). They were very rude and threatened to move her to the stabilization unit if she did not remove it. Worst of all, they recommended that she put a sheet or a pillow case over her head instead! She was singled- out because of her religion. They could not provide a written policy of this requirement and would not compromise as she is perfectly normal and does not have a severe case. They wanted...

Peachford Hospital - Georgia / rude staff/uncomfortable beds/ and more

TAM2625 on Jun 16, 2011
PeachFord Hospital has the worst staff, they aren't friendly, nice, or overall fit for there job. They don't know how to treat the kids. I'm 14 and I had to be there for 3 days and it was horrible. It was like I was in hell. I knew it wouldn't be a 5 star hotel but this place isn't even 1 star. The beds were like wood, for all I know they could have been. The staff was absolutly rude to all the patients. It was absolutly unbelieveable. It was also very very dirty. I was disgusted at how gross everything looked. The therapy sessions didn't help at all. They would...

Peachford Hospital - Georgia / not getting a report on whats is going on

TGantt on May 14, 2011
They do not let you know what is going on. Talked to the case worker on 5/10/2011 and the doctor was to call and let us know something. As of today 5/13/2011 we have not heard for him. The caseworker left a message saying that he would be release on Monday 5/16/2011. This is a 85 year old man that can't even remember to take his own medicine and thinks he can still drive.
