The absolute WORST. I've been trying to call the Pittsburg location for 2 DAYS now. I've been hung up on multiple times. The really SAD part is that I simply want to give them INSURANCE INFORMATION. Who... more is running this mess. They should be ASHAMED!!!!!!!!
I gave birth to my son at this hospital in April of 2016. After the doctor broke my water, I remained in labor for 8 more hours, and in that time developed an infection that put me and my baby at risk.... more He was born via c- section. After he was born, I was told he had pneumonia. This was not accurate. We remained in the hospital for a week while my son received antibiotics; I was released from care after a couple of days, though. Three days after we got to go home (10 days post c-section), I developed a terrible fever prompting me to return to the hospital. I waited in the ER lobby as several people who came in after me were taken back for care. Once they finally took me back, I was met with a nurse who acted as though I was lying and a student nurse who bent a needle in my arm while trying to place my IV. Eventually, a nurse practitioner took over my care and informed me that I was septic and essentially dying; I was admitted immediately. The infection I had gotten while in labor had not been treated, or at least not fully, despite my son and I having stayed in the hospital for a week after his birth. Someone also misdiagnosed some scar tissue in the area of my c-section as an abscess. To treat said "abscess", they put a surgical drain in my abdomen. During this procedure, the nurse was not giving me adequate medication for the pain; I felt everything! It was unbelievably painful. This surgical drain remained in my abdomen for a week. It was inconveniently pressing on a nerve, so for that entire week I had severe nerve pain shooting down my left leg. I was released after a few days, and a few days after that I went to my gynecologist to have the drain removed. After removing it, my doctor informed me that I never had an abscess, just completely normal scar tissue, and the surgical drain was completely unnecessary. I am angered and traumatized by this experience; I am seriously afraid to ever have another child.
