Very rude staff in the ER and didn't seem to care one bit about my injury or the amount of pain I was in. I will never go here again, wait time was terrible even though there was only a few people there. Not sure what happen to this place, but I will find another place from now on
My husband and I spent a year trying to get my medical records straight with Baptist Health Care, but obviously, they still have me in their system as a nut job.
I arrived at the hospital yesterday. No one took my history or even my blood pressure.
The nurse said “ Do you even have a difinitive diagnosis yet?” I actually have five autoimmune disorders, all verified through Mayo Clinic, but before I could give her my history the lady running the EKG said to her, “ this looks different.”
“No, it’s fine” she said and put me in a room.
No monitor or blood pressure checked.
The cuff was causing red swelling and is in my chart to take it via my calf or use a hand held cuff which I asked for and was ignored by the nurse.
The doctor came in and I explained my fatigue, dizziness, chest pain, flashing lights in my vision etc. Dr Skaggs said “ Well, your EKG has changed, so we will get a chest X-ray and draw blood. Sorry, but there’s no blood test for chronic fatigue!”
Of course, I don’t need a DX of this since Mayo has already done that, but He would have known this if he took my history.
I asked him to test for stroke and he says, “ does that run in your family?” Yes, my father and my brother have had strokes.”
Well, are they smokers?” No!
So to appease me he went through the test never even paying attention, and he did it all with my lying down.
They discharge me and the lady comes to take my blood pressure and it’s 199/ 104. This was the first time it was taken. i ask for it to be taken again and they give me the second reading on my report.
I ask for blood pressure medicine and she returns with a script and says contact your primary care. We told them we just moved to the area and couldn’t be seen for a month.
My husband recorded the visit.
I guess I’m still marked as “ crazy” but even if I were mentally impaired, wouldn’t taking my history or even my blood pressure rule this out?
No compassion. No urgency. I was there over 4 hours during slow time. 2 pm to 6:20pm and they didn’t even take my blood pressure?
If you’re looking for compassion and professional care, go to U of L and forget this place.
My first stay in the womens center was horrible. They put my IV in wrong and it came undone so I was bleeding out all over the place. Tried pressing the call button the nurse gave me and all the buttons on the bed. None of them worked. I had to unhook myself from the fetal monitor and unplug the IV machine, drag it and myself into the hallway all whilst bleeding EVERYWHERE, and yell for help. Turns out the only call button that worked was never given to me. It was clipped to the wall not within reach at all.
The actual birth experience was alright. The main nurse was sweet and helpful. The other nurse just stood around with a stern look on her face. The doctor (spaulding) was quick. Only there long enough to deliver baby and placenta. Which is understandable, but he didn't even repair any of the tearing. They also, without my consent, gave me a shot of lidocain during labor and then pitocin AFTER I gave birth. They did baby's pku test incorrectly so we had to bring her back to get her heel pricked again. Now they can't find the results of the second pku test. This is the most unprofessional hospital. I would not recommend having a baby there.
If I could give 10 stars I would! I had to have an emergency surgery and I couldn't have had a better experience! The nurses, doctors and surgeons all had the most hospitality that I have ever experienced at a hospital!
I couldn't have chosen a better hospital to deliver my baby! The nurses are all like angels who endured my screams and gave me so much needed encouragement. I'm forever grateful.
