If I can give them a zero I would, I understand why they have some of the lowest ratings in the state. My nook was stolen, pretty sure staff stole it! I asked three times to get my blood sugars checked no each time. It’s against state law to not check what a patient is asking them for. Horrible horrible hospital!
This should be condemned and shut down I am going to make a call to the California health inspectors better business bureau hazard whoever I need to I cannot believe it is In business and in charge of saving peoples lives because they sure don’t seem like they care about them Do not come here at all costs unless you want to die in my life I have never been treated in such disrespect and negligence but I will definitely do my best to try to get word out for people not to come here and have them inspected by any government agency that they can to shut this place down
They put me through hell and I would give 0 stars if I could. They wrongly gave me a spinal tap that put me in the hospital for weeks and threatened my life.
I Came in with the flu and they automatically assumed I had Meningitis simply because there was 1 case at my school at the time (they barley examined me, talked to me or listened to my symptoms). The nurses were so rude and unkind, they made me feel as if I was a huge hassle to them, and I was a freshman in college alone and across the country so they made this entire experience even worse.
After they decided to give me a spinal tap without informing me of what was going on and not even having any valid cause to, they discharged me practically right away, probably no more than 20 minutes after they did it. The doctor told me if I had ANY nausea or head pain to come back ASAP. Sure enough as soon as I stood up I began vomiting and could not even walk myself to the exit. Not only did no one help me, but they forced me to leave anyways even though this was a major red flag.
After being pushed out of the er despite begging any nurse or doctor I passed to help me, I made it to the ER lobby where I was still throwing up non stop and could barely stand. I told the front desk guy I needed to be readmitted right away - that the doctor made it very clear if this started to happen to come back - and he flat out refused me.
After going to another hospital later that night where I had to stay for a couple weeks, they found that not only did Alvarado have no probable cause to give me a spinal tap, but that they did not do it properly leading to me losing a dangerous amount of spinal fluid. The other doctors said that if I had not come in when I did it would have led to life threatening seizures.
They put me through absolute hell from the moment I walked in the doors, and for the following weeks after I left.
Worst staff ever. Incompetent to say the least. I've been here twice for a broken bone and all they do is take x-rays. A cast.. They don't do that here. Oh yeah forget about meds because they got Motrin for you. Complete waste of time. God forbid you're dying. 3rd world country medicine at Alvarado hospital!!!!
Shame it’s absolutely shame that people have trust in this hospital starting from unprofessionalism of emergency personal to a zero knowledge of a surgeon. As far as witness majority of there patients are brought in from jail or prison not to say that they should not be treated in any other way, unfortunately those patients have no choice. The only way you will see a nurse if you walk up to there station couple of times. Surgeon that will tell you once you released I’m so sorry I haven’t done this surgery before so I did what I could. If you can’t perform your duty send a patient to a different hospital. These hospital is owned by a foreigner. Save here and save there. This is the mentality take a look at the emptiness of these facility zero patients that probably had a better knowledge to go to a different hospital. And who ever response to these letters SORRY will not do we are not buying a used car. SHAME
