My husband went to Allegro plaza Wednesday finding out he had the flu then ended up having to go to Columbus ER Friday saying he doesn't have the flu it's West Nile then going back Saturday saying it's... more not the flu or West Nile it's his gallbladder..... Both times we went he was very dehydrated they also said that they could not do anything for him that we couldn't do at home and that he was perfectly healthy... Friday when we went to the ER my husband was so bad that he couldn't even tell his social security number date of birth... We finally got a awnser after taking him to a different hospital so we went to West Point Ms they put him in the hospital right away and told us he had Double Pneumonia....
My mother had open heart surgery here and although we love her heart doctor the hospital staff after leaving ICU, is for the most part, awful! The first 4 days she spent in ICU, the nurses were great... more and very kind. The next couple days she was sent to the in patient part of the hospital and thats where all the trouble started. The nurses acted as if they were being bothered doin general nursing duties and forgot her in the shower. After pullin the nurse string, still no help came which resulted in nearly falling backwards when she was forced to try and get up from the shower chair to reach a towel because she was freezing. She then managed to make it back to her bed and 20 minutes later, the nurse showed up to "help" her! Also, the doctor ordered that she get up and walk 4 times a day with the help of a walker and a nurse, but until we got upset and my sister called the nurses, they only walked her once a day and acted bothered by helping her then. A couple days later they moved her to the Transitional Care Unit on the 4th floor in order to get her therapy started. We were told the nurses on this floor were better than the ones she had been dealing with but 5 days of her being there, only 2 of the nurses here are good. After complaining over and over again for days, about not being able to breathe good, one of those nurses finally listened to her and asked the dr to order a chest xray, where they discovered the problem. There was fluid around her lungs. They pulled over 2 liters of fluid from around her lungs and told her that she had very little lung capacity left in one of them, that they almost waited too long! Also, there is only one shower for this entire floor! Which she was forgotten AGAIN to sit and freeze until the nurse found the time to go help her up. The shower is very slick and with help she almost fell again! Then just yesterday i went to visit her and she tells me that she rang for the nurse the night before to tell them she felt like she was guna be sick, 10 minutes passed and when the nurse finally walked in, mom was throwing up in the floor! The nurse got upset and told her she shouldnt have thrown up in the floor, that she shoulda got a cup to get sick in!!! Are u kidding me???? My mom can barely get up by herself, and had just had the fluid removal procedure done that day which caused alot of pain on top of the pain she was already dealing with, and the nurse is guna tell her she shoulda been able to find, and get to a cup to puke in???? And to have her treat her like that when she is clearly sick, is by far the most low down inhumane sorry excuse for a nurse ive ever seen! WHERE DID THIS HOSPITAL FIND THESE NURSES??? WHERE IS THE COMPASSION AT LEAST??? And to hear my mother beg me not to say anything to that nurse becuz shes afraid of how much worse she would be treated when i left, is the reason i will be taking every step possible after she is released to make sure that every RN name i have been writing down will be turned in!!!
