I recently went to Unity Point to visit my father in law who had surgery. I had my grandson with me and the security guard, I think his name is Randy, bought cookies for my grandson. It was a small gesture... more that made a huge impression! The gal at the front desk was amazing, too. Thank you for giving us direction and making us feel so welcome. :)
If I could I'd give this place 5 zeros!! They have a bunch of doctors who don't have a clue as to what they are doing. I don't know where these people got their education but they need to go back. I... more swear they will hire any one.
The anesthesiologist almost killed me and my unborn child. He gave me an epidural and I stopped breathing for 10 minutes.
The E.R sent my mother in law home not once but twice with a erupted appendix, causing her to become septic and almost killing her.
The pediatrics waited 3 days to give my 3 year old a white blood cell count and an xray. So 3 days he went without his bacterial phenomena being treated.
They did a surgery on my Dad to repair his colon and ended up putting a kink in his intestines causing him to be hospitalized for over a month opposed to a week and needing a 2nd surgery. After his first surgery he busted his incision open in the shower and started bleeding everywhere, he pulled the red EMERGENCY cord and it took the nurses 15 minutes to get to the shower room to help my Dad! Mind you the shower room is 5 feet away from the nursing station.
Please go to Webster if your able. They are amazing there and you'll be in great hands unlike this sorry excuse for a hospital.
Very happy with the ER!! Got me in quick and figured out why I was having such unbearable pain.. Before I went there I went to my primary doctor in Sac City as well as Carroll ER. My primary doctor found... more a cyst on my ovary and did no further investigating... and put off my calls when my pain got worse.... I decided to go to Carroll ER because the pain was so bad.. couldn't walk, sleep, go to the bathroom, or even go to work.. They didn't do any looking into it......just gave me shots, told me to suck it up and sent me home. Turns out it was my appendix! Fort Dodge found that out quick and turned out I needed surgery. I cannot express how grateful I am of the Fort Dodge hospital!! Kept my pain under control and were very understanding.... I know they haven't been that great in the past... but now they improved a lot. Definitely recommend them!!!!
