feedback about Griffin Hospital
Many people in the valley say don't go to Griffin... I found them to be very professional, caring, knowledgeable and for the most part a pleasure to deal with. I never hesitate to be hospitalized there. Food was good, doctors & nurses are excellent. Their one goal is to get you better and on your way home!
ABSOLUTELY AWFUL. ridiculously overpriced and careless treatment of patients and their family members. staff was unfriendly and did not even offer family members a place to rest or water for hours of waiting during procedure. they did not even let me know when I was able to leave just so they could charge more for overnight. nurse did not let you know anything unless you asked, and did not come in to check on patients. anesthesia left me weak for days, and medication given worsened it. a terrible experience, would give zero stars if I could.
It a joke!! i got better chances CVS diagnosing me right
I was admitted through the ER i was extremely ill could hardly walk. Fever and dehydrated. 1 week later i still am, and bed ridden. My dr. Cannot help me cause Griffin refuses to give them my records. I have to drive there and get a copy in person. They will NOT give me my results on the phone either. I guess they would rather have a patient die then facilitate one fax of blood work.
I have to say I used to love this place. My wife gave birth to my son at Griffin and the whole experience was awesome!
Therefore, when I fractured my right hip on February 21 in an atv accident I had no issues with going to Griffin ER. After x-rays and cat scans I was admitted and received surgery on February 22 at Griffin Hospital. Post surgery I was informed that I could not wear my insulin pump to manage my diabetes. Apparently this is hospital policy. I have had diabetes since I was 5 and have been on an insulin pump for 6 years! Instead, I was put on a "sliding scale" according to their endocrinologist recommendations. Needless to say, my blood sugars ran high , which does not promote optimal healing and leads to dehydration. In addition, they gave me IV fluids with sugar to hydrate me. Sugar increases blood sugar and leads to dehydration! I had to tell them to take me off the IV in order to lower my blood sugars. I asked on several occasions if the nurse could call the endocrinologist in order to approve me taking more insulin in order to lower my blood sugar. This request was followed through by one nurse and ignored by the rest. Most simply waited until the next meal in order to give me more insulin.
The final straw came when I was released from the hospital and received at home physical therapy for the first two weeks of my recovery. Turns out I was not supposed to receive any physical therapy for the first 6 weeks! Therefore, someone at Griffin approved me getting physical therapy, which went against my doctor's instructions. Needless to say, next time I will go to Yale.
