If I could give a half star I would. This hospital is a joke and I feel people end up leaving worse then when they came. My sister inlaw has cerebral palsy and is bed bound, can't speak and is fed through... more a central line. The hospital is pretty much her second home. She is constantly in and out of the hospital ever 6 months. Unfortunately, this hospital is her only option.
My sister inlaw was not supposed to live past the age of 5, she is 28 now. She is alive today because of the endless care my mother inlaw gives her. But for some reason, the staff at HCMC seems to think that my mother inlaw doesn't know a damn thing about taking care of her daughter. They do not even put into regard anything that she tells them about her. Down to the point the DOCTOR on call prescribed her an antibiotic that my mother inlaw CLEARLY STATED that she was ALLERGIC to!!
My mother inlaw is not able to be with her 24/7 at the hospital with her, therefore leaving her daughter in there care. She has returned to the hospital to find her daughter not changed after the HOURS she was away. She came to find dried feces stuck to her. Catheters were not changed out after the almost 2 weeks she's been in the ICU.
Tonight she is staying the night with her daughter in the ICU. One of the staff members asked her "oh, are you staying up here with her tonight?" My mother inlaw told them yes. Their response was "oh, they hate it when you're here."
That was the response given to my mother inlaw while her daughter is fighting for her life in the ICU, by A STAFF MEMBER!!!!
There is a list of other things and situations of neglect with my sister inlaw. If you can avoid this hospital, I definitely would!
I waited in waiting room for an hour and a half while staff members just sit at Front desk looking like they have no idea what to do. Then I finally get in room and my tooth is killing me. They can't prescribe... more any pain meds. The rn said it only masks the problem. I explained that why I needed it. I have a dentist appointment Tuesday. So I basically should have just stayed in bed with my ice pack. I will not be back here ever again. I'll go to Perry.
