My Ex-husband came to ER in 2016 literally dying--ER staff moved quickly to get him to MRI--and was prepped for surgery--Dr. Einas Joseph is a saint....Ascension is very fortunate to have her on staff;... more because of her gifted hands he is a healthy 65 year old man. I cannot leave out the ICU RN's and Docs- and Rehabilitation Dept.-- It was an unbelievable and miraculous journey. Thank you to all.
In Spring of 2016, I was turned away from the emergency department 3 times over the course of a week. I had hiccups and vomiting for weeks prior. Each time I was sent away with a plastic bin because they... more could not control the nausea. Turns out I was in the early stages of Transverse Myelitis. My symptoms were typical of brain stem involvement. I had all 3 of my babies at Crittenton. As far as I was concerned, they were the only hospital for our family. They way I was treated those 3 visits was completely unprofessional. No testing, just some zofran and good luck to you. I went on to be hospitalized for 9 weeks for treatment. Luckily there are hospitals in the area that take their patients symptoms seriously.
Don't ever accept a hospitalist, intensivist or any physician that doesn't have an outside practice. Those that are employed by the hospital are the bottom of the barrel and usually of Middle Eastern background.... more These also are on the staff at Troy Beaumont; therefore, you can't run away from them. There are some good Doctors at both. Your better off if you know someone who works there for a referral. I do know from personal experience the head of cardiology almost killed me and his associate covered him by stating lies on my chart which I could not believe when she was asked by a intensivist for a consultation. One charged my insurance $450 for each visit. I didn't need the cardiologist... . As a RN, I know how bad medical care is today. Your lucky if you have a primary care physician who is your advocate.
