I want to say that Ive been in military, foreign, public hospitals to include VA...
The ER nurse to patient ratio is 4:1, Huntsville Hospital is 2:1. I have been in bed for three hours, in... more pain and just got IV. No one listens or communicates internally. I had to explain my condition four times. I told everyone upon admittance that I had applicable, recent records at Huntsville Hospital. They waited three hours to provide me the consent to release form. The Dr. Osborn needs to find a new line of work, very insensitive and disconnected. My nurse denied me water. The inside is old, dirty, and gross. They brought me warm blankets and placed them on the sink versus on me. Two hours later they opened the blanket and it had fresh blood and mold on it!!!!
The emergency department on dayshift is horrible!! Dr. Osborn and the nurse i had Anna were so rude and very unprofessional. If you are in pain or in need off professional care takers, I would highly recommend... more you go to another facility or wait until another shift comes on. I had several surgeries at the facility about 10-15 years ago and they were fantastic. I had not been back for that amount of years until recently. Boy has it changed. The only bright light was a nurse in triage named Wanda. More nurses should be like her. Although i only saw her at check in and one other time. She made a difference in my 7 hour visit. I saw Dr. Osborn one time. When i first arrived, Never saw her again. My nurse Anna saw her when i got there and never seen her again. Almost glad about that, Due to the fact she was so rude and cold. Had an IV put in when i got there. After an hour i had to go to the restroom. I rang the call bell and the nurse never came, It was an hour later when the nurse Wanda walked by. Due to the fact my door was wide open the whole time. She unhooked my bp minitor and iv and i went to the restroom. They never came in and hooked it back up and i was there 6 more hours. They ran a bunch of test. I assume they were fine. But i was never told. A nursing student from UAH dismissed me and i was never told of any results. What a horrible excuse for an Emergency facility. Most unprofessional and unsympathetic medical employees i have ever seen. If you dont like to help and deal with sick and people who need medical attention, Maybe a better career option should be considered. I will never go back there ever again!! They are the WORST!!
