This place is ridiculous and dangerous if you can avoid, do so. My mother was admitted here for a stroke. I tried to stay optimistic thinking maybe it was just the ER that was horrible but I was terribly... more wrong. Only the second night she was there really concerning issues from the nurses come up. My mother called me late one night frantic and in pain stating her shoulder (which she had complained about earlier) was in a lot of pain. She said she had been hitting the nurse call button and yelled for help but no one would come. I stayed on the line with her for several minutes before finally deciding to drive up there. When I arrived there was no nurse to be found. I waited with my mom until I heard someone in the hallway and yelled she needed help. The response I got was "I know",then we proceeded to wait some more. The nurses were uncaring,I estimated a wait time from phone call till someone actually came into the room 25 minutes. Who knows how long it was before she decided to call me. Other inicidents followed, being left on bed pans too long, nurses taking their time to get to her, etc etc; you think after so many complaints from myself and mother they'd attempt to straighten up but no... it gets worse. I received a phone call one morning from the nurse saying my mother fell out of bed. How does a stroke patient who can only move half of their body and has the word "fall" plastered all over her door actually fall out of bed you ask? Well according to the nurse she "wiggled out of bed". Cause that's totally feasible. My mother told me a nurse sat her up in bed and walked away..then to add insult to injury while nurses changed shift the night shift nurse agitated with my mother unprofessionally tried to convince her she fell out of the bed herself. All these issues happened on night shift. There are good nurses and doctors there and people who do try to help, unfortunately the bad out weights the good. People need to be aware of what can go on here.
I personally hate this hospital. I know Ohiohealth has bought the hospital, but that doesn't change anything. Last time I was there, the Emergency room was ok. staff were not really smart, but nice. Family... more member had major stroke in 2011 on right side, they said she was just a drug overdose. Hospital is very old and ugly. some was renowned, but most is ugly. Family member got transferred to osu, and they did great. I would never go here for nothing more than minor things.
