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.

GRIFFIN HOSPITAL PHYSICAL THERAPY DEPARTMENT:
I can't speak highly enough about Physical Therapists (Liz & Karen) as well as the office staff at the Griffin Hospital Physical Therapy Department.
I had an injury that I never properly took care of and I was in search of a physical therapy program that would help me address this issue. To be honest, I didn't realize use of the physical therapy department at Griffin Hospital was open to the 'public'. I thought you had to be a patient and or be referred to the program by a primary care physician.
Physical Therapists Karen & Liz were friendly, kind, attentive and took the time to listen to my concerns and issues. That was key for me because I'm an active person and didn't want to slow down. The physical therapy itself corrected my exercise form and lessened the pain from my injury while the stretches that were suggested also helped me tremendously. I would recommend Griffin Hospital Physical Therapy to anyone and everyone who may need to use this program.

My father was killed by a nurse in front of my eyes. She had given Dad a shot of morphine 15 minutes earlier, then woke him up to do a throat suction. Dad did not have a chance to come out of the sedation as she stuck the metal wand down his throat. With a startled look on his face she continued to jam wand down his throat. When she finished Dad was gasping for breath. She ignored this and left Dad tried to catch his breath, but he had no control over his tongue, because of the morphine influence. He choked on his tongue and collapsed dead in my arms. No one would listen to me, and no lawyers would represent me because they said Dad was too old and they wouldn't be able to convince a jury he would have lived much longer!! Can you even image that. Dad was 90 at the time. He was a WW11 vet of 5 years in Europe under General George Patton, with the 2nd Armored Div. know as "He'll On Wheels". Yay, I got a problem with Griffin.
