Very, very poor. Disgusted. Patient went in for a colonoscopy and banding. Broken TP dispenser in patient room; making it unusable. No towels to dry hands. Clearly, the computer system is lacking.... more Very disconcerting when the nurse that is responsible for your care, looks at her print out on the chart and says, "What medications do you take?" and then replies, well, that isn't what I have." This was despite having told them the day before to verify and doctor being part of the hospital. Patient had to hand write a list of 14 meds and give nurse to ensure it was correct! Wow. Wrong emergency contact; was to have been updated many, many years ago! Surgeon: Didn't even do banding. Reason: Stated "it wasn't that bad." Obviously, it was painful enough and bleeding for months to make patient go in and seek care. If procedure had been done as discussed would have been under and experienced no pain. Now, requires more time off work, more bills, and will hurt. Still undecided why doctor didn't keep his work: lazy or greed? Asked if patient could rest for 30 min to nap, so that senior patient would be more steady on his feet. Denied 30 min. to linger in room! "He can sleep when he gets home." Rushed out. Thoughtless & uncaring. Even the cheap hotels I've stayed in, at least had towels and TP--and this is a hospital--a lot more expensive and come to think of it, even they extend the stay with a 1 pm late checkout! A hospital should be held at a much higher standard! Can you imagine, how unsanitary the place is, if they can't even get the big things??? In my opinion, scary!
This place is ridiculous. If you every think you need some where to go to get checked out I suggest IU Med in Blackford County. They are a much better hospital and they care about you. Marion General is... more exactly what it's name says... General. In my twenty-five years of life, they have never figured out what was wrong with me. They had a nurse put a catheter in backwards and pumped my bladder up to where it almost burst. Then they assumed that my pain was from a kidney stone that they basically just made up. And when I made a trip to this hospital multiple times for stomach pain. Not until I went to Blackford that I learned that I had ulcers and a heart shaped uterus. Trust me this place is just a bandage station. If you have anything really wrong then go to Blackford.
Everything was fine until the last day. I was there because of a car wreck due to a medication reaction that one of their nurse practioners had given me. I think they were afraid of a lawsuit. On the Last... more day they send a nurse from hell in there. She hands me a glass of water and said my levels were high how much do I drink a day. I replied usually 6-8 glasses of tea or sprite a day. She said no I mean alcohol. I replied I don't drink alcohol. She wrote down that I drank alcohol daily and that it was a drug overdose. When I came home I counted my meds and had exactly the right amount. They falsified my medical records all because she campared me to her brother who had a drug problem. I do not I am on disability because I can hardly walk and have to take medication for the pain. She also refused to give me what had been prescribed to me. Wouldn't even give me my heart medicine. I WOULD RATHER DIE THAN GO BACK THERE!!
