Never Never again! Worst experience of my life.
Presented at Emergency this Monday Labor Day around Midnight, with severe shoulder chest and arm pain-I have to state I was seen promptly and the Doctors and staff in emergency were excellent.
The nurses were excellent too- however the rooms were an absolute nightmare and the ward is totally out of control with so much noise, loud TV, cellphones screaming on speaker , I got 3 hours sleep in three days- when I complained to an elderly charge nurse at night she told me" well your not at home" - that's the attitude the charge nurse had. The CNa's are totally out of control and will just storm into your room in the middle of the night turning on lights and making unnecessary noise- imagine trying to recover from surgery! - they have loud conversations outside your room with their colleagues and loud conversations on speakerphone in the middle of the night.
The worst part for me was I was discharged with the exact same conditions I came in with, even after telling them that I believed the source of my pain was spinal stenosis- but they decided to focus on my heart- they just don't listen to patients- even after offering to provide copies of my previous MRI.
I only saw my Doctor in charge for 3 minutes the following day- and her statement was" well I don't necessarily need the see you in person- and then she just discussed my discharge- amazing they already had a discharge date- before all my tests were complete.
The cardiologist and all the staff who treated me were excellent. In my opinion, based on my treatment, there is a major mismanagement issue.
So I was discharged with the exact same condition I came in with- severe pain and no resolution.
