My girlfriend and I just had our baby at Bloomington hospital. First I am writing this review for both her and I since we are still here and she is in bed attempting to rest. When we arrived to the hospital... more and got into our room in post partum they came in and told us our surgery time had been pushed back a half hour, no big deal but still a strike in my book. The surgery went very well our doctor “Dr. Perry” was very good and the entire c-section surgery went very well. The anesthesiologist “Dr. Ridge” was also very friendly and very professional. The operating room nurse Kristen was also very good. Overall the c-section surgery went great and was the best part of our experience. After surgery is when our bad experiences began. We have been here for 3 days and have gotten zero rest at all. They are in the room literally every 20 minutes just asking if she needs anything. We feel that they are more concerned with their protocol rather than the specific care of each patient individually. In our case there is no problems with baby or Mom other then we have had about 4 hours of broken sleep in the past 3 days. Something that I have noticed as a Dad is a lot of the nurses don’t even acknowledge that I exist, and even if I comment on something or may have a question I’ve been completely ignored. which really is upsetting considering Ive been number one support for Mom and baby the whole time. One post partum nurse in particular was very bad about this, her name was “Kat Aronson” and she was on the night shift for 2 of the 3 nights we stayed. She was the rudest, most hateful nurse I’ve ever met, that is unless another nurse was around then she put on a nice little act for them. But when she was in our room by herself she was awful!! They mostly just barge into your quiet room talking in a loud voice like it’s no big deal while your thinking to yourself, “ no we don’t need another pillow will you just leave us alone so we can rest already!!” Also they will just stand there and “shoot the s**t” with their co-workers over the foot of your bed while your waiting for them to leave. I could go on for an hour but I’ll stop here. Overall I wouldn’t recommend this hospital for child birth or for anything really, I don’t know how they keep the doors open. If you can go to Indy or research other hospitals there are way better options out there we wouldn’t come back for a paper cut.
Similar to other reviews my sister went there multiple times for a problem they couldn't diagnose properly and even sent her home with the wrong prescription. She almost died if not for the fact that... more when the ambulance came she asked to go to the other hospital and they saved her life by airlifting her to Indianapolis!
Avoid this place if at all hospital. I went to the ER a few months ago with shortness of breath and chest pain. I went after talking to a 24-hour nurse line who advised me to go to the ER. They seemed... more to want to diagnose it as anxiety before really listening to me. I repeatedly told them that I was positive it wasn't anxiety because I know what anxiety feels like and this is not it. After hours of little to no attention, even though the place was dead, they came in the room and diagnosed it as anxiety anyway. Now my insurance won't cover it and they refuse to change the diagnosis even though we have now figured out the problem, and as I stated over and over again, it was not anxiety.
