GRIFFIN HOSPITAL PHYSICAL THERAPY DEPARTMENT:
I can't speak highly enough about Physical Therapists (Liz & Karen) as well as the office staff at the Griffin Hospital Physical Therapy Department.... more
I had an injury that I never properly took care of and I was in search of a physical therapy program that would help me address this issue. To be honest, I didn't realize use of the physical therapy department at Griffin Hospital was open to the 'public'. I thought you had to be a patient and or be referred to the program by a primary care physician.
Physical Therapists Karen & Liz were friendly, kind, attentive and took the time to listen to my concerns and issues. That was key for me because I'm an active person and didn't want to slow down. The physical therapy itself corrected my exercise form and lessened the pain from my injury while the stretches that were suggested also helped me tremendously. I would recommend Griffin Hospital Physical Therapy to anyone and everyone who may need to use this program.
My father was killed by a nurse in front of my eyes. She had given Dad a shot of morphine 15 minutes earlier, then woke him up to do a throat suction. Dad did not have a chance to come out of the sedation... more as she stuck the metal wand down his throat. With a startled look on his face she continued to jam wand down his throat. When she finished Dad was gasping for breath. She ignored this and left Dad tried to catch his breath, but he had no control over his tongue, because of the morphine influence. He choked on his tongue and collapsed dead in my arms. No one would listen to me, and no lawyers would represent me because they said Dad was too old and they wouldn't be able to convince a jury he would have lived much longer!! Can you even image that. Dad was 90 at the time. He was a WW11 vet of 5 years in Europe under General George Patton, with the 2nd Armored Div. know as "He'll On Wheels". Yay, I got a problem with Griffin. Sincerely, Tom Todisco
