I admitted a love one through the Emergency Room at Bullock Hospital for detox. The ladies in admitting were very nice and understanding as we filled out paperwork. The nurses in the ER were helpful and professional.
The reason I am writing this review today is Dr. Stephen Hayden. This man was beyond pompous and rude. He treated my loved one with disgust as though he was not worthy of any care. My dear loved one went to shake Dr. Hayden's hand. The doctor not only didn't shake his hand but made an obvious facial expression of disgust. I stood by in disbelief as I have worked in emergency rooms myself.
Being in the nursing profession I was taken back by this man attitude who sees himself as above others and entitled to judge others. My loved one came here for help not judgement. I sincerely feel this this doctor needs education on addiction, as well as, maybe a class in bedside manner and basic human compassion. Dr. Hayden's attitude almost caused my loved one to leave the facility when finally he wanted help.
I pray that no one has to deal with this doctor. I also pray to God that Dr. Hayden gets help for himself. I have never felt so strongly about something that I needed to write this today. But if your loved one happens to need a detox hospital pray that the detox Doctor helps your loved one in the ER and not this man. My loved one almost left that day he was so anxious and sick. He felt ashamed enough about his problem. For a professional to make him feel that dirty in a place where this is the first stop on a road to recovery he should be ashamed.
I am very thankful that the detox unit nurses, doctors and aides were compassionate and understanding.
I am happy to say my loved one is doing well on his road to recovery. I am very thankful that I was able to stay with him for many hours in the ER that day for if I hadn't been there it would have been an entirely different outcome.
Again, I thank admissions, ER nurses, and the wonderful detox and discharge professionals at this hospital.
