I almost died in this hospital of pneumonia, I came in at 2pm because I was coughing and couldn't breathe, they sent me home said I had cold it would pass. I was back there at midnight couldn't breathe... more another er doc tells me you have pneumonia I don't know why they sent you home in the first place , they admitted me for 7 days, the first night there was hell, they kept just pumping me with morphine for pain. I was so messed up , I kept telling them I was hurting and the morphine was making me worse , I was puking and dry heaving, the next day a new doc comes in orders me something else , I immediately started feeling better. The nurses here are horid and just down right mean. They act like they have no time for you. I seriously thought about getting a lawyer after I got out because of the way they treated me and sent me home and then me coming back.
Cancer diagnosis for my wife, her Spleen was tripled in size and it is Lymphoma with Spleen death. Her Team of Dr's planned her care and timeline out, AFTER talking to HER MAIN Dr. and he also heads the... more ward. A fill-in weekend Dr. comes in and completely disregards everything that was done, took IV pain meds away to low dose pills. There is a mass in her stomach, if food,nutrients and minerals aren't breaking down why would a pill? I feel like subjecting this Dr. to the kind of pain she is in. One star or else you can't post. I didn't want to leave any!
The care is good, But the business office needs to have better review of its paperwork. I had a bill from my aunt who passed. I send it to the address on the statement- PO Box 740711- guess what its wrong.... more Because the bill was older we were placed for collection. And then they couldnt talk to me.
This is certainly not acceptable
