Our elderly mother received exceptional care at LAMC. She was admitted to two separate units and both were outstanding on all levels. All health care professionals were so kind, sensitive and explained... more all of the details relating to her daily healthcare needs. We thank everyone at LAMC for taking the best care of our sweet Mom.
Went into this hospital 3 times in one year for abdominal pain. The first 2 times they said it was not life threatening, even though they saw an obstruction in the Ultra Sound, and sent me home the same... more day. However, they were wrong, in October 2016, my Entangled Hernia ruptured, causing septic poisoning gang green, and I was rushed to ER. This time, for an Emergency Surgery. The surgeons on staff didn't know how to save me until an experienced one walked in last minute to save my life, he is an amazing 5 star surgeon, but this review is for the hospital. I am so greatful. I wish they would have caught it the first 2 times I went in, and that they didn't basically turn me away, after putting IV's in me, and telling me everything is ok to resume work and normal life. They were wrong, and I almost died from it. The stay after the painful surgery, the nurses were mostly great, but for some reason, pushed medications I had never taken before like Haldol. This I had never taken, it added even more pain, and harshness to my recovery after my surgery. I am afraid to go back there. Beware. However, great surgeon, and great nurses for the most part, but pushing an anti-psychotic on someone after a surgery seems really shady. I understand due to budget cuts, this might have been why.
