feedback about Howard Memorial Hospital
We had taken my mother to several different ER's and Drs trying to find out why she was belching constantly for weeks. We had to go to the ER again with her on a weekend and since she had an appointment with a stomach Dr in Nashville we went to Howard memorial. After my husband managed to convince the receptionist that it was an emergency. The ER Dr was a very nice young man that found my mother's heart problems. I wish we would have started with them. Maybe ahe would still be with us.
**** This does NOT reflect in the care I received in the ER. It was great!*"*
I went in on Sunday with irratic heartbeat. They did all the tests to make sure iwasI wahaving an MI. They all came out okay. They decided to send me home with a Holter monitor for 24 hours. Well they didn't have one. They were out with other patients.( I don't
Know how many they have).
Anyway they sent me home with discharge instructions to come when they called to say they had one. They called me in a couple of days and I came and presented to ER( per instructions). They sent me to Respiratory who sent me back to Registration. Even though I gave them the discharge sheet which said I was to follow up with the Holter monitor they said. They said this was not an order. I have now been in registration for 45 minutes......all this because they didn't have a monitor. I live 26 miles from here so it isn't like i can just run up here anytime.
***Being sent from one department to another is frustrating. Especially when you don't feel well. It's like the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing****
I was in this hospital for being suisidal and dr.peeples just sent me home I will not recommend this hospital or the doctor to anyone
Dr Oluokun was the rudest Dr I've ever had!! She did not evaluate me thoroughly, well hardly at all, I sat in there for 3 hours in pain, the receptionist came and checked on me as I was crying my eyes out, she was very sweet and caring unlike the Nurse, my son asked him what did the Dr think was wrong, he said I don't know probably some kind of infection after telling me earlier it was shingles! I have never been treated so bad in my life, I have to be in severe pain to go to the er, which my husband made me, this will make me never want to go to the er ever again, I don't care how bad I'm hurting, I can guarantee Dr pebbles would of sat there and listened to me, this Dr wouldn't even let me speak!
Very good care
