My parents moved down there from Ohio last year. My dad has been in for kidney stones for the past few months. First doctor FAILED to tell him that he has MULTIPLE kidney stones. He didn’t know this until he went back to a different doctor who looked at his scans and apologized. Then he gets referred to a urologist. They wait a week and hear nothing. My mother calls and the woman told her they’ve been busy and yes they received the referral. My mother was told they’d call her for an appointment. Why couldn’t you schedule it right then?? It’s now been 3 weeks since they’ve received his referral to be treated. My father is in pain. He’s inching closer to losing his job due to missing work. TREAT HIM. Bc if you don’t, he has a daughter screaming malpractice in his ear. How the hell are you even functioning as a hospital? This is a joke. I told them to come home and just go to Cleveland clinic bc they’ll do everything and anything within 24 hours. We don’t dilly dally around up here. So do not go to this hospital, go somewhere else. Malpractice.
I was brought in by ambulance at 915am for acute asthma attack. Was given initial treatment. Was told I was going to be admitted at 1045am. Here I sit 12 hours after I was told I was being admitted in the same er room. The VA said that I should stay here to get more definitive care because I needed to see a pulmonary doctor. Nothing but breathing treatments have been done since. Now I'm being told they have no clue when I will be going to the floor. I am willing to bet the VA would be pissed if they knew they wanted me to stay here just to be left laying in the er department. You can't tell me that in 12hrs not one bed has opened up. I don't know what there definition of definitive care is, but I'm sure it includes more than breathing treatments. But I'm willing to bet they won't hesitate to take that VA money.
If I could give no stars I would. The nurses laugh at you. They have absolutely no sympathy or empathy for any of the patients. No organization skills. No response on test results. We have never been so disrespected in our entire lives. Hopefully if you must go there they will decide to like you. If not prepare for a flashback to junior high.
I was transferred to this hospital for my gallbladder removal surgery and i’m so glad i was!! This hospital was VERY clean! Everyone was so nice, helpful and if you needed help with anything they got right on it! I had 3 nurses there over my stay and Mary Mullins was the absolute best!!! She helped me up, got me food, asked me when i needed a drink and what i wanted, she did everything!! Not to mention she went out of her way just to put me in a wheel chair and roll me from the 4th floor all the way to the parking lot to meet my family! I would recomend this hostpital to anyone!!
my 81 year old Mother fell & broke her hip & had to have surgery . she was in icu then transferred over to 3 south .the worst floor ever . first the put her on a bed side toliet that was to small for her & left her for a very long time . untill one of the nurses herd her crying & came into the room to see what was wrong .( I was not there at the time )
then she was moved again into another room on the same floor. shes called me a few times about her bed being soaked & they dont come in to change her . leave her in a chair all morning . when she pushes the call light & tells them what she needs know one comes & when they do deside to it may be 25 to 45 minns later . am telling you if you have a loved one on 3 south at general you need to check on them daily .
