Halifax psychiatric surgical unit was an egregious horrific experience. I was put on a high risk fall unit in March 2017. Nurses on duty were caught by me. Asleep While They were WORKING NUMEROUS TIMES .I WAS NEW TO LIVING IN FLORIDA .MY BILL WAS WAY TOO BIG. NOW THAT MOST OF MY ALLEGATIONS HAVE BEEN AIRED BUT NOT ANSWERED. I HOPE my bill stays at 40 dollars a month as after a head injury and broken foot All my memories have returned. A plus for urgency d minus for all around care. Patient advocate has no record of me.
The above is only my opinion. To Google only am currently trying to save my eyes. AM SOOOOOO HAPPY MY GLASSES COME IN A WEEK.
World Class Nursing and support staff. Alas, very disorganized. No one seems to know what is happening. I was on nothing for four days but an I.V. Drip, no food, awaiting an MRI that was broken. I was told at the E.R. in Deltona, after a Sonogram that I had an inflamed Gallbladder and need to be admitted to Halifax in Daytona Beach. There I was told I would likely need emergency surgery to remove the Gallbladder pending the results of the MRI. Following the MRI I was told by a nurse in Daytona Beach E.R. observation that the MRI came back clear and the surgery was canceled. yet still I received no food. At this point, despite the intense pain I was ready to check myself out as I was starving. The evening nurse check my chart and said she had no idea why I had been told that the surgery had been canceled as it es scheduled for 7:00 AM the next morning. Things went well following the surgery until it was time to be discharged, when I was told they would bring my belongings that had been locked in a safe in the E.R. area, but I had received these belongings the same day as the surgery. Once again poor communication. At discharge I was told I would be given surgical sponges to bandaged a drainage wound from the surgery, I never received these bandages, I was also to be give a prescription for pain medications for a short period while recovering. I never received the prescription. I attempted to call the surgeons office but it was closed. I took my discharge documents to the Halifax E.R. in Deltona, in hopes of getting a short term prescription for pain medications but that resulted in nothing but a waste of several hours while I waited to see a Doctor in the understaffed Emergency room. In the end I left as the pain was too great to tolerate while sitting and waiting. Today is the first day after being discharged from Halifax Hospital in Daytona Beach and I continue to be in agony from the pain. At this point I seem to have little hope left other seeking out street drugs in an attempt to get some relief from this pain.
I had a great experience at HH center for plastic & cosmetic surgery ..
I want to thank RN Curry in labor and delivery for everything. She walked me through a very quick and unexpected delivery and i couldn't imagine doing it without her. She didn't question me when i said it was time to push and thank goodness that she did check me because our son was ready and fast! Im also so very thankful for Dr. Turner for delivering my son. He was amazing and we are lucky that our son will be seeing him as well! If it wasn't for these two, i wouldn't have had an amazing birthing experience. Once i had my son, i was lucky enough to have Portia and Danielle care for our newborn. Portia and Danielle's energy are what made my first hours as a mother of two so relaxing. Portia was always smiling and Danielle was happy to answer the many questions that i had. These amazing staff members seriously make this place feel like home. Every staff member took care of me and my son and I'm so blessed. I would never go anywhere else! You will not be disappointed.
I honestly wish I could give them zero stars. This institution is a joke. The lack of care and unprofessional behavior I witnessed, was truly astonishing. My family and I were baffled that this hospital is allowed to continue treating real, live people. I went in for mental health services. As opposed to treating me like a human, I was regarded very blatantly as less than such. I was treated with absolute disregard. Several times, I sat quietly in my bed, while nurses and techs had LOUD, personal conversations in my room, with no regard to my comfort or wellbeing. I once listened to a tech have an argument with her boyfriend on the phone, for an hour. I was given nothing to shower with. No shampoo, no soap, not even a toothbrush until my family requested such things. My family had to request any and all things for me. I am a vegetarian, and not a single meal I received accommodated such. There was meat on every tray. In order to receive care when my family wasn’t around, I had to get up out of my bed, walk to the nurses station, and ask myself. At one point, my fiancé sat in the waiting room, and his text notification sound was on. He was told to silence it because the nurse “was tired of hearing phones go off, more than the ones she had to answer all day.” THEN, I was transferred to a different floor, what I witnessed, left me speechless. I could go on and on. Bottom line, in my opinion Halifax Health is not fit to provide medical services to any living, breathing, person. I would not recommend this hospital to anyone.
