Admitted with double pneumonia in the middle of the night. The paramedics were fantastic who brought me here. The ER were straight on the case and started treating me immediately. CT, x-rays, and other scans all done with virtually no wait. All the ER staff were amazing. Admitted to 4th floor and again the staff have been awesome! Will add more after discharge.
Okay, I’m going to start this off by saying I understand people can only do so much in their position. I absolutely hate complaining and speaking negatively about employees; and would rather just get the care needed and move on. I know that doctors, nurses, and technicians deal with a lot and are only human too. However, when a person goes into the medical field, they should be prepared for the stress that comes along with it. I know it’s stressful, and that’s why I never pursued a medical career, no matter how much money I would have made. If your hearts not into it, don’t do it! Find another career, adults change career paths at least twice in their lifetime, so it’s normal.
After getting that all out, I have to say this is what is wrong with some of the staff at Bayfront in PC. Some of the staff was absolutely wonderful, while others have given up along time ago. I had one nurse that was great and very personable...the next one that took over for him, not so much.
I like to give people the benefit of the doubt and will say this nurse was probably joking, but either way it is not the most professional. If he seen this review, he’d probably know exactly who I was. I mentioned to him that I would never be able to do what nurses do, because I get so queasy just watching him pull the tube out of my arm. He legitimately responded with “it helps when it’s people I don’t care about”. I am a honest person and would never make this up. I told myself he was joking even after I said “well that nice of you” and he just laughed it off like “it’s the truth”.
The doctor I had wasn’t much better. He made it seem as though I was a waste of time. Basically said their is nothing wrong with you and you can leave after looking at my ultrasound and blood. Except I do have ovarian cysts, but they don’t look like their gonna be bursting anytime soon. He recommended I see a GYN, which is fine, but you would think being a doctor he would have some advice for my pain. I asked why I felt faint earlier and he responded with “there is lots of reasons why, I can’t narrow it down to just one thing”. It’s funny that if I would have called a nurse line and told them my symptoms, they would have suggested I go in to ER...but then I get same results that I could have gotten off a google search for ALOT less money.
There were a few other things, such as taking a urine sample and coming out of the bathroom wondering what I now do with it, because the lady nurse I just had disappeared never to be seen again. I asked someone passing by, and they said “just put on counter”. The urine sat on counter for a good 20 minutes before someone got it. I thought urine has to be a certain temperature to get results?
Any way, I’m not looking to get anything out of this review. I already have a lady calling me next week to set up payment plan. I already spoke with Terri (patient advocate) and didn’t get a chance to tell her everything after being transferred around. She was nice, but I know I was one of “those people” that she already had in her mind that there was nothing she could do for me. The ultrasound lady was awesome, the original nurse that took my blood was awesome, everyone else needs to take a Psychology of Human Relations or Oral Interpersonal Communications class...if not, they need to choose a new career path. I don’t write reviews, I hate reviews...and I couldn’t even pass up the opportunity to write this one.
My vascular surgeon Dr.Kartis and Bayfront Hospital made me healthy and whole again, I had four surgeries in 2018 and I thank them over and over again! I received the best care all of the nurses were absolutely amazing! The best care I have ever received! I highly recommend this Hospital..
I was admitted for chest pain after coming in on an ambulance the ER staff was great after being admitted my night nurses were amazing always in to check on me .Sunday morning was a whole different situation after being told I was having an echocardiogram but not sure what time I was completely ignored until 4pm when the echo tech came in despite 2 attempts at requesting a simple cup of water which was never addressed and even on the third attempt the nurse never came back. I asked repeatedly for my echo results to which I got nothing but a shoulder shrug to then I waited 4 hours to be released al the while still having chest pain and no answer as to why. They day crew for some were great I guess I drew the short straw.I would never recommend this hospital as there are several nurses there for the money only and not the patients and I never got a clear answer as to why or what may cause it and why I still have the pain.
Nursing staff was very compassionate. Dr. Raul Armegal has horrible bedside manner. I am a chronic alcoholic and need treatment, and he treated me like absolute scum and a waste of his time. I needed real help and he just looked at me with dead eyes. He had a " you did this to yourself attitude" just let me sit there for hours to " make me suffer attitude" I've been treated there for alcoholism and the last doctor was so compassionate and actually cared about my well being. Dr. Armegal seriously needs to work on bedside manner and people skills , or I hear home depot is hiring.
