Came in by ambulance with AFib.... scared. Stressing about care since my last visit to ER many many years ago. What a difference, very impressed. The doctors and nurses were excellent and my stay was really... more nice being in a hospital. The quality of rooms, beds, even food was really good. But mostly was the care I got from the staff! I am more positive about HMNMH! Thank you everyone....
I gave birth at Henry Mayo Newhall hospital. It was an induction for my 2nd child and I came in overly prepared hoping for a better experience than my first birth. I came in with a print out of what went... more wrong at my previous hospital during my first birth hoping the same mistake would not be made, specifically with the epidural. I got in an 7am for my scheduled induction and it took the nurse 3 tried before calling the charge nurse to try and get me hooked up to an IV. She said I had good veins but it “kept blowing” was the term she used. After they hooked me up to pitocin I requested an epidural at two cm just because they were planning to pop my waterbag and I knew that would cause me to dilate faster than normal. The doctor for the epidural came, put the epidural in and then gave me a shot of epinephrine to see if the epidural was in the right place he went over symptoms such as ringing in the ears or a weird taste in my mouth. Instead my heart rate spiked up to 175bpm and I got dizzy with cold sweats. As my heart rate started to stabilize he injected more of the epinephrine without saying anything to see my reaction again but I knew the second he injected it because my heart rate spiked back up and I was able to tell him to stop before my vision went black for a couple seconds. He took out the epidural and said he had to re do it. I told him no not right now. After that my body was extremely weak that my OBGYN placed my induction on hold until later that night which was influenced by my decision. The charge nurse, anesthesiologist, and my ObGYN apologized to me. Later that night we began the pitocin and by the morning I was only 4cm. I had a new anesthesiologist put the epidural in which was a success only for the right side of my body. My waterbag popped on its own and I went from 4cm to 9.5cm in 40 mins. One of the nurses told my nurse to have me try push first to see whether it was time to call my ObGyn to come to the hospital. After one push she said to call my dr and to hold on pushing but by this time she was almost out so I pushed again and my nurse had to run out to call the doctor that was available at the hospital. By the time he came in 1 push later her head was almost practically out and he said one big push will get her out (which was true). After she was out and being cleaned up that’s when my OBGYN made it. He was upset because they waited to call which made him miss my delivery. Overall I would not go back to deliver there. However I was at the hospital for 3 turn over shifts which means I went through 3 nurses and I thank my last labor and delivery nurse Shannon for being so amazing helping deliver my baby.
