Shelby Baptist Medical Center is a Voluntary non-profit - Church Acute Care Hospitals located in Alabaster, Alabama. Emergency services are offered here, meaning that staff is available at all hours to... more address unexpected and life-threatening conditions.
The staff at this hospital is simply amazing!! Each and every one from the cleaning people, maintenance people, nurses, front desk ladies, and doctors went above and beyond to care for my mother and my... more family. We were traveling when my mom went into full cardiac arrest and with their rapid response we still have my mother with us!!
Friendly service, highly under staffed.
Staff is professional and knowledgeable, but pain meds that you should take every 2 hours take at least 3 or longer while you just wait in pain. Anything you... more ask takes forever. Good people just needed 10x more of them to be able to offer quality service. Next time I'm going to UAB
And the food is horrible as well, ULTRA high on salt and greasy, definitely not something you give a patient that just came out of surgery.
I was in for 4 days, no one ever offered to change the sheets on my bed or help me clean myself or take a shower.
BUT, after reading the other reviews, I'm glad and thankful that I left alive. They don't have any type of pain management or plan for patient comfort, if you're in pain, though luck, if you're luck they'll bring you your pain med a couple of hours late.
The only reason why there is one star it's because you have to click on a star to even write your review people do not take any of your loved ones to this Hospital they do not care about their patients... more took my day in there they admitted him because they found a mass on his colon that was on Monday August 28th on Tuesday August 29th they scheduled a colonoscopy my dad was in there for a stomach ache which they did find colon cancer and stomach cancer so they say don't know because it has so many different stories each doctor each nurse they don't even know what they're doing up there they failed to tell us while they have my dad down doing the colonoscopy that he A-fib and went to heart failure my dad had seven strokes and a major seizure in May this a hospital also told us other than them Strokes and the seizure my dad had perfect health okay with in Waiting two days before they told us about him going into heart failure and aspirating while he was under my daddy comes back up can't breathe they had to put him on oxygen then I moved him to see I see you that was on Tuesday right after the colonoscopy my dad was fine before he went down he comes back up oxygen gets moved to cicu on second second floor in the old part of the hospital because he was unstable okay they tell us my dad only had stomach and colon cancer that it would be through his liver and filter through his blood if it was to move to his lungs we also have that on video we have another one coming there and tell us he had tumors on his lungs when they just told us that you didn't have anything wrong with it as long as that's on video all day Wednesday all night Wednesday nobody says anything about my.
