My 80 year old mother was sent to the ER per doctors orders. He even faxed the blood test results done the previous day. She is dehydrated and needs IV fluids. We have already waited for over 4 hours.... more I went up to ask how long do they think the wait time was...the young girl sitting at the desk was friendly about it. But was told by the woman standing at the computer that at least 5 people are waiting for that 1 bed. That we have to be patient. And she could get pushed farther down the line because there may be people worse off then her. I told her she is 80 years old, dehydrated and was specifically sent by the doctor for an IV. So i dont think so.
They have people here that are going to the cafeteria...eating and drinking...but they need to come to the ER and get seen before my Mom. The hospital is good. It is just the ER that is awful.
The doctor and nurses when we did get in were very good. It is just the waiting area and time that was awful.
When you have a loved one dying the last thing you need are rude nurses. I’m not happy with the 5th floor nurses, the fact that you can’t even get a cup of coffee on that floor, the food is some of... more the worst I’ve ever had and was a totally horrible experience. The one thing there that is outstanding, the security guards are the best i’ve ever seen, nicest and most helpful. All stars for security guards.
I use to love this hospital, but over a year ago I went in having a chemical miscarriage and the doctor was very rude, when he came in to tell me I lost my baby he kept saying abortion when I told him... more I didn't get an abortion he said well its all the same thing, even his nurse was shocked and apologized. Then a couple months after I went back with complications from being pregnant again, they had to perform surgery to remove the baby bc it was just a sack, the dr. Came in after to tell my husband and I that I shouldn't have any more, even though if I tried to the baby wouldn't make it past 6 weeks, and if I do I would DIE!!! I was so upset and couldn't believe what I was being told, I moved to another state a yr later and found put I concieved, my Dr said I was fine and the baby was ok I'm 5 months now and still the dr see no complications or reasoning to why the dr at Aultman told me this...
