feedback about Cheshire Medical Center
Wow, lots of bad reviews! I've had very good care over the years. The Ob/Gyn and maternity dept at the hospital were wonderful with my daughter's pregnancy and birth. The docs and staff at Team D take time with me and I feel like I am a partner in my care. Our one ER visit took a few hours, but that it just how ER's work - they have to keep triaging as new patients come in. I do wish you didn't have to go through central registration and could go directly to the department instead, but it is not that big a deal.
I do wish they would renumber their floors 1,2,3,4. I have never figured out the sequencing with 2A thrown in there. Seems like the end of each staircase could simply be a new floor.
Can't say I was impressed. First issue was a lack of effort or follow up on a needed referral for my son. Second issue happened after we moved to CT for my job. In the hustle of moving, finding a place to live, etc…, we lapsed on getting my sons prescription refilled, luckily, our pharmacist gave us a 2 week refill to buy us time. My son is on Medicaid due to being special needs, so that adds a wrinkle as I’m finding out. Our local pharma couldn’t refill his prescrip since it was issued by a NH doctor and he’s on CT Medicaid. We requested a records transfer, but it wasn’t happening very fast, so the local nurse called to verify the prescription details so that the new local PCP could issue a prescription until she could see my son, his first appointment is not until late January (about the best we could find with docs taking new patients with Medicaid) The nurses at our old PCP at Cheshire were very rude, and lectured us about taking too long (never mind I had to apply for CT Medicaid, get approved, and then find a doc who was accepting new patients who also accepted Medicaid!), and was VERY judgemental. Kept interrupting our new PCP’s nurse, who was extremely patient and professional! So glad I’m done with Cheshire Medical Center! Also, went to the ER once because my son, who has a history of seizures was feeling dizzy, so thinking it might be the onset of a seizure we went to the ER. They didn’t do anything like an EEG, rather hooked him up to an EKG! Not a doctor, but his previous doctors at Colorado Childrens hospital typically used EEG’s to look at brain function. Rather odd.
My son took a big hit in last night's football game and was taken by ambulance to here. First thing was, they stood over my wife basically waiting for her to pay the $250 copay making her feel as if he wasn't going to be treated until they received payment. Collarbone broken in 2 spots, Dr saying one of the worst breaks he's seen. Give him Tylenol for pain with a prescription for oxycodone that we couldn't fill until the next morning. Then sending him home for the weekend, expecting him not to move as they said any movement could cause more damage and telling us to call Mon to set up an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon. Never again will I go here
Grouchy doctors, terrible employees, such small mindedness galore.
Is it really that easy to get a medical job? Just attend college for a few years and then just *boom* you get hired and become a medical professional?
Honestly I felt like I was getting medical treatment from a Walmart employee. That's how narrow minded and inconvenient they were. It's terrible.
And all they did was ask me the same questions over and over again. Pathetic. It's like that episode of Fresh Prince where the 2 guys break into some fat guy's house but they get caught escape to the roof and some social worker who thinks they are suicidal jumpers comes over and whips out a script and starts reading it to them. That social worker probably works for Cheshire medical center.
When you arrive at 4:30 and it takes 3 hours before you are looked at, that is uncalled for! This hospital is nothing short of being a animal hospital! Shame on you all! Worst bedside mangers I have EVER seen. Absolutely no respect for the alderly.
