Great staff and excellent care. My son fractured his wrist during a basketball tournament and I cant keep saying how great our stay here was. Staff went above and beyond for him and for that I'll be forever... more grateful.
I recently had my son at Swedish American and all of the staff was amazing. I never had a bad nurse taking care of me or my son when he was in the NICU. Everyone was encouraging and so helpful to us as... more new parents
Every time I've had the bad idea of going to Swedish American I've had bad experiences. I was in there for over 2 hours this time waiting to see a doctor for chest pains, light headed, and shortness... more of breath. I didn't get to see a doctor till I asked for my discharge papers. I couldn't handle the rudeness of the nurses. The blood pressure cuff was so tight it left bruises on my arm and the nurse got upset with dr when I took it off. When she yanked the IV out it hurt so bad I came to St. Anthony to see if she screwed something up.
I ended coming back to Swedish American hospital again on 04/05/18 because I was involved in a very bad car accident. It's now 04/13/18 and I'm still here. Since I've been in here I had a nurse try to put a compression cuff on my leg that 7 breaks in it. I have high blood pressure and I'm on meds for it but for some reason my blood pressure was very low. The same nurse went ahead and forced me to take a blood pressure med by iv dropping my blood pressure down to 35 over 14 putting my in ICU. They almost killed me. Most narcotics don't affect any pain for me. They never have and I don't like taking them. The nurse was forcing me to take Morphine. I told her I didn't want it and it does do anything for me. She said that's what the Doctor ordered and that's what I'm getting. I asked if I could get tylenol instead and she said no because the doctor didn't order it. I asked if we could talk to the doctor about it and she flat out said now. I will take what he ordered and that's it. She shot the morphine into my iv. Since then things have continued. I haven't been able to get a decent sponge bath yet. My body odor is so bad I have to have a fan blowing it away from me. I'm completely unable to get out of bed. I have 3 breaks in my left shoulder and 7 breaks in my right leg so I'm not physically able to get out of bed. I have a deathly allergy to fish and seafood so today for lunch they sent me up a tuna casserole then jumped me for not eating it.
I remember when I was younger Swedish American hospital was the best in the area. But now it no where I would want anyone to be at. O have met some pretty incredible nurses but the bad out ways the good by a long shot here.
