Worst place ever! I don’t know about the main hospital but as far as the sleep center goes I will go elsewhere! Spoke to the manager whose name is Karen and is absolutely horrible and very unprofessional.... more I felt as if she did not care about my concerns and was spoke poorly to by her. She smelt of alcohol so maybe that could have been the issue with her attitude. Will not be cared for by someone who drinks on the job Crestwood needs employees who have manners unlike what I was shown by Karen. Do not have a sleep study at Crestwood!
RN did not select a good site to start IV. The IV machine went off continually, with message the vein was occluded. I spent approximately 4 1/2 hours with little care. My last reqest to nurses station... more I stated the IV hurt (nurse Jody taped my left thumb down and stated hold it down with your fingers.) The IV should have been restarted and never was...I also asked for a blanket, freezing. So, the PA came to room, no blanket, no offer to restart the IV. The IV bag of fluid was full, what a waste of time and money. I was dehydrated, and never received fluids. I didn’t see a doctor until the last minute and he agreed with PA...go home. I had a elevated white count and long history of death by heart attack in the family. Will not be going back to this hospital. VA Hospital in Amarillo, Texas is outstanding, and I like VA Clinic in Huntsville, AL....they take care of me and always show compassion and concern. If I could give a zero...I would.
