If I could get enough it negative stars I would. I am currently a patient who came in with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea with stomach pains. I was admitted by doc who said it was diabetic ketosis, came... more in room at 6 pm. From the time I got here until now I have had diarrhea 17 times, all known to nurses. The current nurse just looked up what to give me and there is nothing ordered. I have not even seen a doctor in last 24 hours. Was told by the nurse this morning I am here because of pancreatitis and the nurse just now said I was admitted for dehydration. These people don't even know what the hell is wrong. They do not give you the proper amount of medication you take at home and then wonder why your sugar is not lowering. (I'm diabetic and the have me on clear liquids). First the liquid diet given to me consists of juice, soda and jello that all contain sugar and is not to be given by diabetics. When I have spoken to the staff about these problems the look at me and just walk away. This hospital needs shut down until they can get real staff who know what they are doing and doctors who actually care for their patients a humans and not just a paycheck.
i went to the ER for a nasty bleeding stomach ulcer
i guess they don't keep a single DOCTOR on shift ??
a very basic nurse gave an aspirin yet refused to run standard blood tests ??
said... more medicaid ''does not cover basic blood tests'' ??? HUH ???
THEY DO i called the governors office in charleston about it
i think they like to ''look down on poor folk who have a WV medical card''
went across the river to Holzer and got a full blood test report and the right medicine to help me
also lots more smiles at Holzer and they DO have at least one doctor in the ER at HMC
Some of the staff are excellent. The rest are extremely lacking in not only common sense but in bed side manner. Last time my mom was admitted we had to bath her, assist her to the rest room, or she would... more have been there over a week without end a sponge bath.
