My wife and I were scheduled for an induction. However, she needed up going birth naturally, no drugs. The nursing staff in labor and delivery were EXCELLENT!! As we were moved to Mother/Baby (Postpartum) the nurse there were also great. Each nurse introduced themselves as shifts changed. We have preferred nurses but no complaints from any of them. Also, we were satisfied with the rooms cleanliness. The food was great and I couldn't remember other hospitals having such good food selections. One thing though, the family is a unit that should be encouraged by the hospital. At certain times, the dads are not treated as important as mom. There a whole laundry list of why or why not, but I'm not going into that. When ordering food, moms get it free and delivered, but dads have to leave to go downstairs and pay and get his own food. I just think the hospital could do better about the whole family unit. Regardless, 5 stars Brandon Regional.....
My grandparents went here after a recent car crash. They are severely short-staffed. When they call for a nurse, it takes forever for one to show up. Sometimes over an hour. The poor nurses are running around like chickens with their heads cut off, trying to help everyone. A whole week here, and neither of my grandparents have gotten a shower or bath. Grandpa has a rash all the way up his back from messes that get left for hours. The food is terrible. They are barely able to get sleep. The rooms are so tiny, everything has to be shoved around for tests. One of the case workers has no idea what she's doing. She wanted to send them to some dump rehab instead of the one we suggested (that we know from previously is excellent). She said there was no space available, when we call, the rehab says yes there is absolutely. She says they are wrong? Nevermind, lady, we'll do your job for you. Parking is always on the top floor of the parking garage no matter which day you go.
What I can say, is the nurses there are top notch. They are overworked and overwhelmed. But when they do have a moment, they are checking on you as well as the patient, being friendly with the kids, going above and beyond.
Other than the broken ankle that brought me to you, my experience was top notch. From your ER personnel, to the nursing staff on the surgery ward, to the PT people, and especially the food for my 6 day stay, I couldn't have asked for better. My surgeon Dr. Shah and his PA were and absolutely the best around. I don't want to do it again, but if I had to I would come back to you all! Thank you for everything.
I've been admitted to Brandon Regional Hospital over a dozen times from 5 days to 14 days at a time been in the ICU for three days one time and the doctors and nurses were absolutely wonderful towards me. They have good food the janitorial service is spot-on as far as cleanliness and there's always somebody asking you can they help you or do you need something.
I was visiting my friend who has been hospitalized from a fall he's 90 years old and the doctors recommended that he go to physical therapy for it a couple few weeks and I'm going to miss the old man I'll go see him of course but it's not the same as he lives right next door to me. Sorry I missed the memorial I didn't get the post quite quick enough to make plans for it. Sincerely Robert
We had our son here almost a year and a half ago. Top notch. Great maternity ward.
