Just lost my dad at this hospital last week. He said a Dr. Carter administered the drug fentanyl and later that night he went into respiratory arrest, this drug is linked to malpractice and death. I believe... more wholeheartedly this drug administered is the cause of my dads death and they COULD have saved him however he had "told them verbally" to Do Not Recusitate... no signed DNR. I hope this doctor knows he murdered my dad with this medicine and may the Lord slap it out of his hand before giving to another patient. Worst hospital I've ever dealt with in my life DO NOT LET YOUR LOVED ONES GO HERE.
My fiance broke his leg and had to have emergency orthopedic surgery. We are both from South Texas and were in Odessa for work, so we chose this hospital due to the fantastic ortho rankings.
The... more orthopedic trauma surgeon, Dr. Cunningham, was fantastic. He went above and beyond to ensure my fiance had his surgery as soon as possible and really listened to him.
However, the staff on the 6th floor (ortho unit) were very mediocre. The day shift did their job, and simply that. The night shift were horribly rude, and lacked professionalism and thoroughness. The housekeepers, food services, and ancillary staff were kind and considerate, but the nurses were not impressive.
