I came in by ambulance because I cold not drive myself I was in severe pain. My pain actually began to fade on its own, not long after I arrived. I got an ultrasound from a wonderful tech named Jamie. She was very reassuring and spoke very calming to me. There were a lot of gallstones in my gallbladder which was why I was in so much pain. The nurses were very short with me not seeming to care at all. A while after being in the ER I told my nurse my pain was going away so I didn’t want any pain medication anymore. A little while later the charge nurse came in yelling at me telling me I needed to go because they needed my bed because they were full. This was how I was discharged. I didn’t get any time to gather a ride or anything. When I came in by ambulance I didn’t even have any cloths on and I had my 3 month old child with me as well. I tried to ask the nurse to calm down and just give me a few minutes to gather myself and to get some help getting home. Although I had told my nurse my pain was going away and I didn’t need the pain medication anymore, I still was feeling sickly and very weak and the charge nurse Kati was very inconsiderate, rude, insensitive and hurtful. The way the charge nurse was yelling at me made me cry and I felt so little. I felt so scared and very unimportant. I also work at a hospital in Grafton and I have never seen any of my coworkers treat another human so cold. No matter how “full” we are we don’t just push people out like that.
ER has little mercy for patients in pain, or prompt admittance. Long stays with no care. Going to have to find a new Urologist because I can't tolerate being in this place. The only thing they are good and promt at, is demanding your co-pays. If you think this ER is good, you havent been to Froedtert West Bend. NEVER AGAIN. No need to respond with your cut and paste call us response, I won't be calling.
I've had 5 surgeries here and the staff was wonderful.
In 2015 I went to this hospital as in-patient in their behavioral health division. I was going through a temporary crisis, triggered by a sudden addiction to cigarettes - and the depression that came from the obsession of such.
I told them I wanted to be Luvox, and they put me on it, and it didn't help. I came back and they performed electroshock therapy but I knew that won't help - I was trying to buy more time because I didn't feel well enough to go back home, and that surgery takes a week or two to perform.
Anyways, they never really treated me and I still needed to see someone, so I had to go to Milwaukee County Behavioral Health and they did the right thing by prescribing me Wellbutrin for the time being.
So why do I rate this place four-stars? Well, when the issue subsided I was left with a medication, Wellbutrin, that triggers manic episodes for me. Last time I was there - Nov 2015 - they took me off of Wellbutrin and I have felt much better since.
The real reason why I don't give this place five-stars isn't because of the doctors, or my stay there, but because they lack options for outpatient behavioral help. Granted, I live closer to the CSM at North and Lake Drive, but this faculty seems to be pretty small and lacks the resources for long-term care.
This was the last place I came to for inpatient behavior health. It's been two and a half years since my last visit, and I'm doing much better for myself. In part because of the wonderful nurses and doctors that treated me.
The service at this hospital was outstanding. A friend of mine was in the ICU and was treated especially well. Very clean! I am glad that he went to Columbia St. Mary’s!
