Too crowded and not enough doctors or nurses to go around. Good caring compassionate nurses.. when you can track one down. Very clean hospital follows all rigorous health safety standard
Recently my son got very ill and had to be transferred to this hospital from Danbury ct. The staff was amazing from the doctors to the nurses right down to the cleaning staff! They all made sure not only my sons need were met and he was as comfortable but myself as well. The doctors and nurses made sure to explain everything to me daily and while it was a very nerve-wracking experience I felt his care was in some of the best hands. I can't thank everyone enough and wanted to say you're all doing a wonderful good!
I am 18 years old and recently went to the ER at CCMC and was admitted for uncontrollable vomiting, after 4 days my mother & I spoke to the doctor who agreed that I could be discharged. The first thing the next morning I returned to the ER feeling worse than ever. I was immediately admitted back into the hospital. Several tests were done and they all came back normal, but I was still vomiting uncontrollably. I was then seen by the psych team and we had come up with a plan and medication that I was going to try. I was ready to go home but they wanted me to stay for 1 more night. I was told all my paperwork would be ready so I could be discharged 1st thing the next morning. The next morning the team of doctors did their rounds and told me I needed to stay at least a few more days possible a week. I would not agree with this. Another therapist I had spoken with put me on a medication that I wanted no part of and told her I wanted no part of yet when I left the hospital the prescription was waiting for me at CVS. She insisted that my vomiting was caused by me being anorexic when that was absolutely not the case. She told me if I left the hospital and had to come back I would be put on restrictions and would have to earn any and all privileges. I felt this was very inappropriate coming from a professional, so I signed myself out. As soon as I got home I received a message from my psychiatrists' secretary that he would no longer see me, he had spoken with someone at CCMC and felt he could no longer help me. So thanks to this hospital I was left with no medication and no help.
Nothing but good things from this center. I have only been here once with my daughter and upon arrival she was miserable. The first thing they did was gift her with a teddy bear. Always attentive and made us feel welcome. The two day stay there would’ve been otherwise treacherous if it weren’t for their attentive and caring staff.
Dr. Parker in the Er was wonderful working with my daughter, the hospital staff was all great,efficient and charming with my 9 year old daughter. I had a very quick time also,less than 2 hours and they had to give medication and re-check and shes done! Yay,they saved the day! Also Clifford,whose my dad name also,was a great nurse in the Er,it was hysterical how they were teasing with her,they made me so comfortable and relaxed that I was in good hands. I would recommend them to anyone and shes also had a previous stay here 2 years ago with pneumonia and they were even better,if that's possible ,upstairs too. They have volunteers that play with the kids....very good hospital!
