When I became aware that I was going to spend some time in rehab at Peconic Bay Skilled Nursing Facility in Riverhead. I was to say the least with some trepidation.. However when I arrived on the fourth... more of july 2017 , I was overcome with a Aura of joy, serenity, peace and calm about this place. All I saw was Angels. The likes I have never witness before in my life. For the next 21 days As time would reveal these Angels were Nursing, Rn’s, LPN, SNA, Physical Therapy and O/T. Housekeep. and Dietary (food Like a 4 Star Restaurant)…anything you needed was provided, It was like we were at a pleasure resort.. What An experience to say the least. I would highly recommend PBMC .” God Bless All The Angels At PB’.. GREAT EXPERIENCE..
This morning I woke up in the middle of a Crohn's/Colitis attack and I was having bowel spams which really hurt so I had to go the hospital. They know me, they know what I have, I've been there so many... more times and yet the staff treats me like a bum off the street. After laying there in agony not seeing a soul for 4 hours the ER doctor finally came in and yelled at me to stop moaning. Then he said my problem was that I've been smoking too much pot. Total nonsense. Prescription medication helps a little but there are so many side effects it scares me to take them and then they won't work but my Dr. says take them so I do. Diets won't work, exercise is impossible, well I can walk about a mile. So the one thing that gives me an appetite so that I can bring myself to eat is a little toke or I can't eat, I can't keep any of my food down it all, I get tired of throwing up after every meal. I'm not Snoop Dog for Gods sake. The amount of pot I smoke before a meal is extremely miniscule. Not to mention that it has also been recommend by a couple of my own Dr.s. I am not a recreational user. Insurance won't pay for my Crohn's meds since it went up to $1000.00 a month. I've been going to your Hospital for 25 years, Dr.s know why I'm there and they treat me like a criminal crack person. My primary care doctor and my GI are never there, I can't schedule a Crohns attack. You are the only medical facility in town. We pay $400 a month for insurance, our deductable was $21,000.00, we send $50.00 a month to the hospital, we just don't have anymore money to send you, we have to eat and wear clothes. I can't go to Greenport, they kicked me out of ER insisting that I only wanted drugs. There are 2 hospitals over an hour away, Peconic Bay Medical is 15 mins away. Now that you can't or won't help me you have given up on me. Over the years I have been treated very badly by your hospital. Good visits too, but most of the time bad either the dr.s & the nurses don't pay attention or if they do they whatever they want instead of what I really need. I understand totally to follow your nurses and dr.s directions and I do faithfully. Why are some of them so rude and nasty. I've seen the night nurses throwing water in an old ladies face while she was crying in the hallway and they were laughing at her, I'm sure you know who I'm talking about she was left there for a long time until you could find somewhere for her to go. I've seen nurses scream in patients faces and make their patients cry. I've had nurses lie to my face. I've seen doctors who immediately dismiss anything I have to say, sometimes before I've even started speaking. I lay in ER for hours with absolutely no attention or being told to shut up. I've seen a lot of good things and a few bad things in your hospital We've been there often enough. I was even attacked by another patient while I was in bed. Is this acceptable to treat your patients this way? I bet that's a problem you and your family and friends would never have to worry about, but What do I do? You are still the closest hospital, I don't always get rotten care but it happens enough that I'm afraid to go there, and yet where else can I go? I would really like a reply to my question. And by the way I did not even have anything to smoke this morning. I did all my smoking the day before when I couldn't stand the pain any longer. Barbara Schneider
