Neglectful patient care! I had laundry strewn about the floor of my room following a major surgery. I told the nurse that no one had come in to help me all day. She shot back, “This is what you get when... more you sleep all day!” Very frightening to be under this person’s care. Conditions were unsafe.
I really have to say, Gulf Coast Medical Center is one the best Hospital I have ever seen!!! The minute my husband was admitted to the ER they performed all the tests necessary in less than 30 minutes...... more within the same amount of time he was examined by more than 3 doctors including the specialists “Dr. D , the Neurologist.” I have Never seen a team so knowledgeable, prepare, efficient, and friendly. Then my husband was transferred to a big private room. We were there for 4 nights, they even brought me a bed!! I was so amazed of the professionalism and knowledge of the nurses and staff, thanks to all of them for being so understanding and caring... They were super friendly and made our stay more comfortable. I want to thank Dr. Husain for his patience, and the way he handled our situation, my husband and I are very thankful for all the information he provided and the way he treated my husband. We also want to thank Dr. D, the neurologist in charge of my husband case, we are thankful for all his efforts and for all the informative advices...My husband was examined by physical therapists, speech therapist, nutritionist, etc. This center had all the latest equipments and technology to conduct all the tests we needed.. The facility was super clean and modern...My family and I are deeply grateful for everything!!! I have never seen something like this, thank you all
