feedback about Glendale Adventist Medical Center
The care given here is very professional. All members of the team introduces themselves each day which I liked very much. Very helpful. Report was given at the change of shift and I could listen to it too. RN’s explained medications given and used. Very good drug delivery system . ID was always checked before any procedure. New gloves were put on before procedures. I especially want to praise a new RN named James.
Elvis was always there when I needed him,he even made me a fan to cool when room temp seemed to be overwhelming. Thank you all very much. May your drives to and from work be fast and safe!
Really like the attentiveness of the staff in the maternity department. They are very caring, friendly and considerable of your condition. My sisters and sister in law have delivered their babies at Glendale Adventist and had a great experience. My husband and I really wanted to choose this hospital for great experience with our family members at this hospital.
Glendale Adventist did a better job this visit than a year ago. They were attentive to my mom's medications. I always find however the wait in the ER VERY LONG... My mom came into the ER at 8:30 to 9pm and they did not move her to her room until almost 3am. That was a 6 1/2 hour wait. I arrived right after she came in the the ambulance and during that 6 1/2 hours time span, I saw 1 xray given. I never saw the Dr. at all. The nurse however, was helpful in answering questions.
I went in to Glendale Adventist for my annual mammogram and bi-annual bone density. While I generally feel like it is a very good hospital, although my experience there has fortunately been limited, I feel like they need to update their procedures a little. I have been to other women's imaging centers in the past where mammogram results are given immediately, and if other procedures are needed such as an ultrasound, they are also done right away. I have spoken with my doctor about this, but there doesn't seem to be anywhere in Glendale that provides this service. For such a large metropolitan area, this seems a bit ridiculous. I waited 6 days to get my letter in the mail. For most women, the annual mammogram is fairly stressful, and if a repeat visit is required, it is even more so. This process needs to be streamlined. This important annual check should be much less stress and hassle.
The other issue I have is with the parking at the outpatient center. I had my tests originally scheduled on a Wednesday morning at 11:00, and when I got there, I could not get a place to park. I followed other cars (I kept seeing the same cars going around in circles) looking for spots for 25 minutes in the parking garage, then finally decided I had to reschedule. I went at 8:00 in the morning the 2nd time when I was able to get the tests done. If parking isn't available, parking stubs should not be dispensed or there should be readily available overflow. I won't be going there again at any time except first thing in the morning.
If you know you must go into the ER for a few hrs or even be admitted, before you go get your noise canceling headsets out. The noise level is way out of proportion to your comfortable time to help with recovery. The bright 3rd degree lights don't help any either. Take your cap and shades too. The poking and prodding you will just have to put up with. All in all they do a great job!!
