I brought my mom who has CHF in to Holy Cross hoping for quality care and I surely didn’t find it here. After a week it so of being admitted for fluid in the lungs Pulminary Edema. My mom is old and... more had a stroke and is inable to communicate properly, they called me today and said OH by the way the doctor has discharged your mom and if you can’t pick her up we will send her home in a Taxi? Seriously? She’s 85 yrs old can’t walk or talk and you threaten her and tell her she has to leave in a Taxi?? Of course my mom freaked out and then had an anxiety attack and the nurse calls me back and ask “ME”what medication to give her??
I had to tell her to ask the doctor cause I’m not her doctor. Wow I’ve never been more pissed in my life. I will be making a complaint with the hospital board, you can bet on that.
Patients get moved and its difficult to find the room sometimes. The nurses are nice and caring for you and the patients. When you walk in it doesnt really feel like a hospital more like a home for patients.... more
My 31 year old son came in with severe abdominal pain. The initial surgery removed 2ft of small intestine. The reconnection blew out 4 days later resulting in a second surgery with more wounds across... more his belly. He has been in the hospital for 10 days and feels dreadful. He hoped that surgery would cure his Crohn's problems but he is now reduced to being a sad living cadaver. The hospital has moved him to three different rooms despite the fact that he suffers considerable pain whenever he is moved. We are hoping for a positive outcome.
