feedback about Henry Ford Hospital
Good evening, i am in the hospital now at main campus. My nurses on B5 and other staff have been amazing. They have been the most caring group of people to work with. Know the hand them Dr's have been a mother. How do you say what you are going to do with someone and never examine them. Then how do you tell me what i need and this is not my first time i have been in the hospital for this problem. I am telling you what helps and you telling me its not. I have never been so disappointed in a group of Dr's as i have been in this hospital stay.
First off, my problem isn’t with the whole hospital. Just the liver specialists. Almost 4 years ago, my father was put on the liver transplant list and the liver team told us he’d be on the list for 2 years at the most. Well, 2 years went by and he still didn’t receive a new liver. Anytime we went to the doctor appointment with the liver specialist, he ALWAYS told my dad he was to “healthy” for a transplant. How is walking with a cane or walker, not eating and losing almost 50 pounds not sick enough? He had to retire from the job he loved, cuz he couldn’t do it anymore. How is throwing up blood and in an out of the hospital once or twice a month “to healthy”?? That is something we never understood. Over this past summer (2018) my dad had to have lung surgery, so he could breathe. This was caused by his liver and lack of immune system, covering his lung in extra tissue. The surgery itself went fantastic. But after two weeks, everything went down hill. He got a stomach and lung infection and went into a coma. The doctor repeatedly told us he wasn’t going to make it. They advised us to say goodbye. However, me and my family never gave up and weeks later, my dad WOKE UP. So many doctors were surprised about it. Of course we were happy, but by being asleep for two weeks caused him to lose more weight and become weak. It was going on 3 years being on the transplant list and now the liver team was telling us he was to weak for a transplant. This is what caused us to be very angry. How can you tell him he’s to healthy, wait years while he’s suffering and to tell him he’s to weak AFTER fighting a bacterial and fungal infection and winning??!!! I know I’m not a doctor, I’m just a college student. But I’d rather have lost my father on the operating table and then not trying, and that’s what happened. I had to sit and hold my fathers hand while his heart stopped beating because no one on the transplant team would even try or help him. I had to sit in the hospital for MONTHS watching my father turn into a man I didn’t recognize. I had to watch my dad get a tracheotomy, I had to watch my father throw up blood. I had to watch my father get a feeding tube. I had to watch my father get poked and prodded everyday because they wouldn’t give him a new liver or even try. I had so much hope to the future with my dad, and now at 21 I have to deal with his death. NO one should EVER have to go through this. I am very disappointed with Henry fords liver team. They couldn’t save my dad when they said they would/could.
Nursing staff and the doctors have been very friendly to my mom and her family for the week she has been there! But.... the dietary department has really sucked! It took over an hour and half for soup one day and then she wasn't hungry, the lady said it wouldn't be long! Really? Then she ordered spaghetti the next day and just got noodles without the meat sauce! Really? She was on a regular diet! They have poor communication with nursing staff! Then waited for lunch over 2 hours the next day. When calling the kitchen they said she didn't order! Two minutes later she got her lunch ! No communication! Dietary has not done their job and it makes the hospital have poor ratings!
THE BEST BEST BEST hospital ever!!! The nurses, the doctors, everyone is so kind. I definitely recommend this hospital. Everything is so clean, all staff are nice and very welcoming. My grandma is being treated very well and so are visitors. Thank you so much HF!
I was on time for a cat scan at 8 in the morning and I drove from downriver to be told it's a new year and our insurance needed to be verified and it was my fault for not verifying the test through the insurance company. I assumed that's what the hospital did confirm payment...that what I get for assuming that they actually care about the patient I had wait a hour for them to laught and gossiping to be told they will work me in. Time to find a health system that cares.
