Just got back from this hospital. BE CAREFUL IN THIS PLACE!! The room I was put in had fresh blood on the sheets, and I was asked it lay down on it. When I pointed this out to the nice gentleman who... more brought me back to the room, he said its probably just a stain. He pulled the top blanket down, revealing another blood stain on the sheet right below where the first blood stain was. It was not a stain, it was bright red fresh blood. He did not inform anyone else. When Dr Saavedra came in he again asked me to lay down on the bed, I pointed out the blood stains and he clearly said this room has not been cleaned. The nurses changed the sheets. I already get nervous coming to this hospital because on a prior visit I developed a golf ball sized knot/infection under my skin. My north memorial Primary care Dr. Reinier examined it, and told me that the bad bacteria in hospitals can enter through a hair follicle. I hate leaving a bad review, but this was over the top disgusting. And much worse, potentially very dangerous. This place needs to clean up it's act. My care was fine, I guess, but this is one more event that caused me further increased anxiety. I can no longer go to north memorial without getting massive panic attacks, this just made it much worse. If you're an attorney with a pending case I'll be happy to testify under oath as to my experience. My geeeeee-m'ale account is matthewburrell1
Took my son in for breathing issue, they got him admitted right away but seemed like they really didn't know what they were doing. Was told that they'll monitor my son and do xray, which I never got the... more results for, and then all of sudden a nurse came and told us they're getting a room ready and my son will need to stay over night. That's when doctors and nurse kept coming in and telling different story. Doc said my son was good and we can go home. The nurse then will come in and say my son is not well and we need to stay. My son was fine after getting some shots and oxygen mask but they insisted we stayed overnight. My son seems well now after 16hrs in the hospital already. They took 1hr to get us discharged, then a nurse didn't know how to write a excuse note for me for work. Then they didn't cut off my sons security cord which caused the alarm to go off. The nurse at the receptionist who didn't know how to write an excuse letter, took forever for discharge paper, then said she don't know how to get the security tag off my son. I've been to this hospital multiple time and all they seem to want is money, and don't care about what the patient really came in for. My son came in for a breathing issue and they start counting his mosquitoes bites instead. This may be the last time I go here for any medical reason.
Worst service. I brought my 89 year old father into the ER with severe stomach pain and we waited in the waiting room for hours with no expectations as to when he would be seen. I will never bring anyone... more to this hospital again. The care stinks! This wasn't the first time we had a bad experience here! So never again. This used to be a great hospital. I don't know what happened to it..
