I feared not making it out alive of this hospital because of how understaffed and negligent they were at my hospitalization of about 6 days after surgery. And they took way too long to address each issue going on or even forgot to multiple times. There were some good Drs. & nurses but the bad definitely outweighed the good. And they weren't all very nice, some of the nurses had terrible bedside manner and you could tell they lacked the empathy and patience that a nursing job requires. There were several staff members who made excuses about the ridiculous amount of time it took to get anything done and mentioned about how they were understaffed and people kept calling off. So they had too many patients for each person and weren't keeping up with their jobs properly. Just unacceptable when people's lives are on the line... I agree with the other post where they said don't come to this hospital for anything serious if you care about your life or your loved ones lives. Very scary experience! I even spoke to the patient advocate and nothing changed.
My elderly father went to the emergency after passing blood in his urine. They sent him home with a uti told him to come back if the condition worsened. 2days later he had clots in his urine and returned at 4pm. It is now 1036pm and he still has not seen a doctor yet. This is not the first time. It is a shame I live 6+hrs away and could have driven there faster than they attend to there patients in need of medical attention. This is not where you want to go if you have something serious going on. There is no excuse for a hospital, any hospital to be this grossly understaffed or inept at providing emergency care. He is still "waiting in line" like he is buying meat at the butcher. I'm so kissed right now. The staff should be thankful I am not there. I will be calling the administration in the morning to file a complaint as this is a violation. If you are unable to provide effective adequate medical care in a timely fashion then you do not need to be a hospital designed as a "emergency" care facility.
