feedback about Franciscan St Elizabeth Health - Crawfordsville
Doctors need to go back to school. They said I didn't have pneumonia when really i did i recieved services else am currently hospitalized I will never seek medical services there again. An anybody who came in with similar symptoms of mine should definitely get seen somewhere else
I must assume that all of the doctors in Crawfordsville is in the network including those that have moved to Crawfordsville Square. I had to change doctors after my other doctor retired. My complaint, why don't the nurses and doctor I have now know how to take blood pressure?
It's bad enough that you run patients through like cattle but you don't allow time for patients to properly rest for especially blood pressure readings. But what is worse is when the nurse have you to get up on the end of an examination table with dangling arm and dangling feet where the nurse wraps a cuff that is too small around my arm over my sleeve and is clueless as to where the brachial artery is so the artery marker can be properly located.
And they wonder why I have such an elevated blood pressure in the doctor's office where it is pretty normal at home. I take my blood pressure every 3 or 4 days using various sphygmomanometers. Some are cheapies and some are quite expensive without D rings and as long as there is no problems with them they all read about the same except those digital things which I haven't used for at least 5 years now because they are so inaccurate. Yes I have quite a collection.
I have been taking my blood pressure for 20 years and in that time I've honed my skills and understand why it is important to take a blood pressure reading correctly. It shouldn't be any harder for a nurse or doctor to take a blood pressure reading correctly than to take it wrong. So these nurses and doctors need to be retrained to take blood pressure readings correctly. KUDOS to the nurses and doctors who does know how to take blood pressure readings which seems to be getting rarer these days.
My kids, husband and I were passing through and our vehicle broke down. We were stuck in a hotel with no transportation. I was running a fever of 103.9 and got a ride from hotel staff to this hospital. Two of the nurses made rude comments to me about not getting my flu shot and were unprofessional. One nurse made a joke about it, "bet you wish you got your flu shot now!" and laughed. I got about 4 comments about the flu shot. Another nurse told me I "better get it next year, k hun?" In a condescending tone. She had an attitude with me the whole time I was there. Treating a patient this way when sick and vulnerable is ridiculous. I have my own personal reasons not to get the shot that's honestly none of their business and I shouldn't have to argue and explain myself in that condition. I walked a little less than a mile back to the hotel because there was no transportation in the area at that time (midnight) and none of the staff bothered to ask how I was getting back. Not really their job but I was still running a fever that was lowered by 1800 mg of Tylenol.
I dealt with 7 different people and every single one was pleasant and professional !! Very impressed and I will return if I need too.
Great place to be you have too.
