The problem with doctors and nurses and medical personnel today, is that they are not in the business for the love of humanity, science, or healing, but rather to make money, even if at the expense and... more detriment of the patient. Full of greed and burned out by greedy, thieving, evil insurance companies, lawsuits, the constant stream of hospital management and new owners, and the growing number of unemployed and poor who cannot pay their bills, doctors (and many nurses and medical personnel) have lost not only their minds, but their souls. They no longer care about the human beings with whom they come in contact nor the quality of the care they give. They are paycheck collectors who not only do the minimum to get by during the workday, but have begun to take a cruel turn that includes abusing the sick who come to their care.
I am specifically referring to the medical personnel who work the emergency room at Wuestoff Hospital in Rockledge, Florida. This hospital should be thoroughly inspected by medical authorities and "undercover" patients (investigative reporters, private investigators, cops, and possibly the FBI) because there is trouble brewing within, trickling down from above, and about to implode and explode with the number of lawsuits, illnesses, and deaths, due to outright negligence, as well as downright cruelty and physical and emotional abuse that takes place on a minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, and daily basis in the Emergency Room and Mental Health ward.
I was perturbed to hear of the negligence and abuse to which my nephew succumbed when he was Baker Acted due to stress after the car accident death of his fiance and was exasperated at the cruelty I witnessed to another patient while in the emergency room. The doctors and nurses plotted for how to demean the person they thought was "faking" an illness and didn't try to hide the "plot" from the other patients and medical personnel within earshot. They seemed to relish the idea of their "standup routine" for a captive audience, perhaps as a warning to all to not "waste their time by 'faking' a visit to the emergency room"' or else to engage followers and evildoers in their scheme.
My disgust was so great, I left to another hospital. BOTTOM LINE: Patients are not only being neglected, but cruelly mistreated by the very persons to whom they are entrusted.
The medical "profession" is no longer at Wuestoff Hospital in Rockledge, Florida. Between the politics, burned-out and evil medical staff, and general abuses of the infirm, there is no healing to be had.
One can only hope and pray that justice is served and Wuestoff Hospital gets shut down.The staff at the mental illness ward, emergency room, and surgical floor should not just be fired, but arrested for their ongoing abuses and incompetence. Locals tell horror stories about surgical doctor incompetency. The hospital is known as Worst Off, not Wuestoff.
Cruel and incompetent emergency room staff. Do not recommend to anyone needing or wanting good care, or even mediocre care, unfortunately. Medical staff here, especially in the E.R., is burned out and... more should take a leave of absence or leave the medical profession altogether for the sake of the patients. Drive to the next nearest hospital unless you want CRUEL and UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT that could kill you. This hospital should be closed down and the Emergency Room staff fired and arrested. I recently moved to Rockledge, but learned the hard way why locals call it Worst Off instead of Wuestoff. You are definitely worst off when you leave, if you get out alive.
