My daughters doctor broke her clavicle. They didn't even give us a decent pacifier to help soothe her through the pain, and wrapped her too tight. She was changing colors and my husband noticed. We loosened... more her wraps as much as possible until another doctor came in and we brought it to her attention. She said this is too tight, yes, after my husband had loosened the wrap, it was still too tight. The doc fixed the wrap and asked for her pacifier. We gave her the bottle cap with tape on the bottom to her. She said what is this? We told her that's what they gave us. To top that off, I went in yesterday for chest pain, bowel problems, breathing problems that occurred every few minutes that was causing my pulse to drop. They gave me to radon which is a med that people with blood clotting disorders shouldn't take. Yes, I told Dr. Heath about my blood clotting disorder. Nurse practitioner Young knew as well. I'm still having the shortness of breath. Lack of pain is not stopping that, which according to them was suppose to. The hospital was once the best, so I thought. They prescribed me a valium and said the pain was causing me anxiety. I told the nurse that I didn't have any worries when I came in. I took it, and guess what? The breathing and dry cough persisted. I'm not a lab rat nor is my child. I just want to find a facility that has staff that truly care for people and helping them get better. I left the hospital with 155/95 blood pressure. When I came in, it was 129/85 . They put on my discharge paper that my end blood pressure was 117/80 . Now who is suspect? If you don't care for people, the medical fields that involve dealing with people should be treated like leprosy, stay away. We pay our money for high insurance. The least you can do is treat us correctly, literally.Kalvin was a great nurse. He was a nice size guy, but showed the most concern over anyone. I saw Dr. Heath once, he just stood there and looked at me. Dr. Young only touched me when I was showing her where my chest pain was. We did not see Dr. Heath but once. NP Young actually told me what they thought was wrong with me with the door wide open, violating my hippa rights. She didn't even walk into the room, she kind of hung onto the door.
The nurses on the 5th floor are nothing but rude as a majority and halfway down their jobs. My pain medications are "as needed" but yet when I request them it takes at times up to 4 hours to receive any... more of my prescribed pain medications. My nurse tonight is Katherine and she obviously has no desire to comfort others with their poorly dressed bandages or anything else for that matter. I would rather travel to another city in search of medical treatment than to ever come here again.
