feedback about Alta Vista Regional Hospital
I am a former employee. ICU, And ER. Where do I start. The ER and ICU director, a Naval Reserve Officer, from Utah, would lie about his meetings, supposedly to go back to Utah every weekend. I am an RN, and a retired Marine. It doesn't work that way. He was really spending the time, " shacking up," with a divorced ER nurse who had a juvenile child in her house. And the Lt. Commander was married! This was a violation of military law, because the military considers it adultery. I reported him to administration, and the Navy, and the next day, he was gone. Why did they hire this dirt bag in the first place. He was absent when the ER and ICU needed direction. If I hadn't have known what was going on, he would probably still be there.
The wait times are very long even when there is no line. They are also known locally by most people as the hospital you go to, to die, rather then get treated/cured. It has the nickname of Hasta la vista
Had surgery to remove a umbilical hernia, from the time I checked in to the time I left I felt very comfortable with the nurses and the staff that was helping with my procedure. They were all very friendly and willing to keep me comfortable as they went about there jobs.Every thing was explained to me as to what was going to happen step by step. To keep a long story short I was very pleased with the service.
Recently went in for knee replacement surgery. From the time I got there, until the time I left, was treated with kindness and care by the staff. Was kept well informed on what was happening and rather enjoyed the stay.
Very dissatisfied w/altavista I have wasted time gas and money to travel from northern n.m. to Vegas. For 3 separate occasions for same appointment. 1st time they couldn't find my paperwork on orders. 2nd time2nd time they didn't hve proper orders cause staff requested wrong forms from my PC. 3 time machine was down. Not 1 of these appointments were cancelled so I wouldn't hv to make a unnecessary trip. I waited for 3 weeks for them to call and reschedule as they said they would. But never did. I finally call and they finally tell me that they don't preform said test and put all blame on PC again.the incompetence of this hospital has no boundaries. Staff is rude and very ununderstanding. I would rather travel extra miles to santa fe than to deal with altavista and their staff any longer. Thank the good lord I want dying.
