I got to this page by searching "how to begin to file a lawsuit against Northside Hospital".
I cannot even begin to try to describe to other... more people the pain and suffering my family has been through at the hands of MANY (like, dozens...) of completely incompetent and unqualified doctors, nurses, technicians, too many to count. Don't get me wrong, I am in no way trying to say that EVERY doctor, nurse and technician in that hospital is incompetent. Just a handful, but I don't think the people running the show at Northside understand how dangerous having even ONE bad doctor can be.
By "bad doctor" I don't mean "has an attitude and doesn't make me feel welcome". No, I mean "doesn't change an 85 year old woman's bed pan (that's full of blood) for nearly 12 hours before an emergency colonoscopy, administers unnecessary medication - without first notifying family members OR the 85 year old patient - causing an adverse reaction that lead to the same patient having a stroke and needing to be transferred to intensive care" kind of bad doctor. And that is just ONE CASE of ONE PATIENT during the course of two different stays at this hospital, this year alone. Imagine your grandmother being taken to the ER, only to be given the wrong medication, and then watching her have a stroke right there in the hospital, surrounded by the doctors who prescribed it and the nurses who administered it.
Now imagine your grandfather slowly wasting away in a dirty hospital room, only being checked on every 7 hours (we kept track of time), and being so neglected that his tongue dries up and breaks off, sitting in his mouth unnoticed by others for nearly 3 hours. All because a nurse was too busy to sponge his mouth with water every so often.
Luckily, we were smart and kept records of the horrendous treatment my family has suffered at the hands of these people, and we are making every attempt to ensure the right people are held accountable for the suffering they have caused.
If you have any other option, divert AWAY from this hospital.
You will leave more broken than you arrived.
I have been thoroughly impressed with the care provided and the Staff here at Northside Hospital @ Forsyth. Not only is the physical building very clean, beautiful, and comfortable, but also, all of the... more Staff have been kind, courteous, professional and quite knowledgeable. Kudos and much appreciate to Northside Hospital @Forsyth.
I have to say that I had a great experience in Northside hospital of Forsyth. The nurse's I had were wonderful so was the Drs and physical therapist. Thank you for your awesome hospitality. I would recommend... more this hospital to my friends and family.
