feedback about Frisbie Memorial Hospital
Bring a retired nurse I found that the care my mum received at Frisbee was excellent. From the doctors to the nurses aides all were attentive and the staff's skill sets were exemplary ! I was impressed at the level of assessments that caught issues immediately and the steps they took to avoid them were top notch.
I can't thank them enough.
I dislike the fact that even at 2 am they make it harder for you to see a nurse. They take there sweet time and they don’t even listen ! Worst experience
Sadly to report, after 3 weeks inpatient under the care of Dr. Jodi Marshall, I received a call to grant permission for initiating hospice. During my mother's stay in attempt to stabilize a sudden onset of anxiety common with Alzheimer's disease, I noted bruises, excessive increase in pelvic restraint use, and a demonstration in staff suggestive of lack of knowledge working with a patients diagnosed with dementia. From experience, I would agree with several reviews that inpatient geripsyche should at all cost be avoided if your loved one is diagnosed with dementia. As an example, during one of my visits I was immediately bombarded with negative comments about my mother and a demonstration of unrealistic expectations in working with a patient diagnosed with Alzheimer/s disease. At some point, I interrupted the nurse and as a result she apologized and reported she was not having a good day. Although it's unclear what ultimately contributed to a sudden switch, I speculate that detoxing patients off of medications without the use of comfort meds(increase in pain for Alzheimer's patients,), an overly aggressive and inexperienced staff(unrealistic expectations), an environment that offers zero stimulation of pt. suffering with Alzheimer's, and a falsely advertised team-oriented approach had a negative correlation on my mother's physical and mental health. In all honest, I feel the overall inpatient geripsyche credentials need to be reviewed to insure entire staff is capable of delivering appropriate care to patients with dementia.
Do not recommend this place for surgery at all! I have never ever seen such sloppy work done in my life. My family member went here for a bypass on his leg, they had to go through his intestines to get to it and thanks to this “hospital” his colon was basically disintegrated by the time the new hospital in Boston could do more surgery on him (which he needed because Frisbie screwed it up). So now he has to have a colostomy bag for the rest of his life. If I could rate this place no stars I would.
Went to ED recently, was diagnosed quickly, admitted quickly. Had a big private room with an awesome RN...Stephanie! MRI, CTScan, and ultrasound, all professional and caring.
