This hospital is a true dichotomy. We had to BEG to see an actual doctor as they rotate with other personnel. We did not see a lung specialist until day 9, with my 90 year old father getting worse and... more worse. They did not admit he'd be better off in Portland until he was far too involved. Although almost totally sedentary, they did nothing to prevent blood clots for over a week. When they FINALLY did an mri he was full of clots and they had travelled to his lungs. He died 3 days after being transferred to Maine Med. I fully believe had we been more proactive (both medical staff and family) he may have survived. Having said that, the nurses on the 2nd floor were totally amazing. They were SO kind and patient to all of us. I honestly felt they cared for him as though he were their family. They constantly reassured him and were endlessly compassionate and understanding. He received attention 24/7 and absolutely loved all of them. I do not have the words to express what a fantastic group of professional they are. In spite of the end result, we were so blessed by them .
Horrible! They sent us to penbay or said we could wait for another couple of hours while observing my mother in law barely breathing. She died a few days later. Also, the months prior to her death they... more even had an x-ray showing a fist-sized tumor in her lungs. They decided to apparently ignore this and kept calling it TMJ and allergies.
