My mom was admitted 2 weeks ago with a UTI. 1 they left her in the emergency room for well over 24 hrs. I do understand that because of Hurricane Irma, they were swamped. But the care of my mother was... more terrible, her confusion (caused by the UTI) got worse as each day passed. I told them that mom needed the strongest antibiotics because her confusion was getting bad day by day. The nurses nor Dr's didn't listen to anything I had to say, until I raised holy cane. The case manager, who was supposed to call me to let me know when my mom would be transfered to the rehabilitation center in Ocala, didn't call me until the last day (yesterday). She continued by upsetting my mom by saying to her that I changed my phone number (I didn't), she told that if they couldn't get any results the hospital would just discharge her. I had to do the case mgrs job and calm mom down at the same time. The heart Center there is wonderful, the hospital staff on the 4th floor itself is horrible.
NEVER come back. That MD that they have its awful. He dont listen carefuly its always hurry. Then tell you that he cant do labs and urine sample in a pediatric patient because "Its difficult" "The personal... more dont fell comfortable taking blood samples in pediatrics patient. So what kind of Urgen Care is that? I know that they only see senior population but you still working in a urgent care facility or ER even if you dont like it you like RN need to know how to manage a Pediatric patien!. For what reason you have your PALS? Waste of time and money. Awful. NEVER IN MY LIFE COME BACK!!
Entered ER for severe infection covering my whole body. Checked in and only one nurse seemed concerned about letting me sit in the waiting room chairs with expose sores?
Due to room availability... more I was in the ER 26 hours. During that time I briefly saw two Drs.
Neither could explain to me what was going on. After nurses hung several IV bags of antibiotics, narcotics and steroids I asked if a Dr is ever going to come and explain my lab work and treatment protocol which the nurses suspected Staph infection.
During the day nurses and employees entered the room ungloved and not using the antiviral soap when exiting.
My IV leaked twice both blood and fluids all over bed frame and wiring for monitoring equip. Little effort to clean except paper towels. Weak to no Staph protocol.
No wonder Resistant Staph strains running through our hospitals.
Just got a room. First nurse in ungloved and unaware I might be contagious.
Next time going to Orlando.
