This happen to me on third floor med surg. October 29, 2018 9:30 Am.
I was just released yesterday after having surgery. The doctors were great, The nurses were great. The techs Faith and Beth took really good care of me. The problem I had was a tech walked in my room with a mask on. I asked her why was she wearing a mask. She just went off on me. in a nasty tone. " I have been sick and if you don't want me to touch you I want!" She never gave her name. She spent more time going back and fourth with me about not touching me! I still don't know her name. She never told me. I got out of my bed and walked to the nurses station. When walking back down the hall to my room this same tech was walking towards me. She would not move out the way for me to walk past. I'm the patient and just had surgery! (Unbelievable I was just in total shock) I then asked for the charge nurse. She didn't come right when I asked for her. I went back to my room. I was told she was in a meeting. She later called on the speaker and said the tech would be removed. I then asked her could she come and speak with me as to hear what I had to say and tell her what happened. (Which she should have done in the first place) Then the charge nurse said her manager would come in and speak to me. I don't recall anyone coming to me saying lets talk about what happen today! The emergency room is really great. That 3rd floor staff can be really nasty and rude. Very unprofessional! They need to train there tech when you walk in a patients room to say" Hello My name is.....And I will be taking care of you today. Not just walk in and stand there getting prepared in the room. When she first came into my room her first words should have been "Hello"! This was a really bad experience for me. Your already sick and don't want to be in the hospital.
Do. Not. Trust. This. Place. I promise you. With every fiber in me. Don’t come here for serious things and if you do request a transfer out. The only good areas are OR/Radiology and labor and delivery. Every where else nurses are VERY unprofessional and genuinely don’t care for you at all. Came in with sepsis and they told me to leave since it was anxiety. The Er a hour away ran several test to know I was having early stage reactions to the illness. Pathetic.
If you have to come to this hospital I strongly suggest you have someone stay with you or you stay with your loved one. My Dad had severe shingles and is 78 years old. We were talked to at least 4 times about signing a DNR. One particular nurse who called herself Barb was asking about what quality of life my Dad had which I'm not sure why she would want to question us about that when he was currently in severe pain from a bad case of shingles. We found out she was talking to our Dad about the DNR during her night shift with him (which she admitted to) and was telling him he was dying ! The next day he told us he was dying more than once. Once he got a new nurse he started improving, I dont think it was coincidence. She also threw out his tea and did not give him water! He needed a drink. I did not trust her. She was not what a nurse should be. This is not the first problem we have experienced with this hospital.
very nice staff and the Doctor and attending nurse was professional.....Thank You.
I wish I could separate the review here. My wife's OBGYN was awesome and the nurses when she delivered... not so much for the doctor on call. She was not close like they should have been and treated us like an inconvenience.
