If I could give this place a 0 I would.. this is literally the worst hospital I've ever been to in my entire life.. unprofessional nurses and lazy doctors.. people in the waiting room for literally hours.. there was a man in there before us said he had been in the waiting room since 1:30pm and we got there at 7:30ish.. this place really needs to be checked out..
If I could give 0 stars, I would. My 6 month old baby was admitted for RSV. Instead of putting oxygen on her, they told me to hold a cup that they had stuck the oxygen tubing in over her nose and mouth. But this isn't the worst. During the night they OVERDOSED my 6 month old baby on steroids and hid it from me for 12 hours!!!! I immediately had her transferred to a different hospital once I found out. My Primary doctor at the time was in their hospital network but I have since changed doctors. I will not step a foot in their hospital or a doctor's office that affiliates with this hospital!
From the reviews, you can tell that this hospital needs to change their culture. I can't believe that this behavior is allowed!
I guess I have to leave at least one star to make a comment. Otherwise it would be ZERO stars.
Just left the ER from admitting my brother-in-law to the ER. Dr. Golber, the ER doctor on staff asked my sister-in-law (the patient's wife) who "I" was, because he felt I was just "agitating" the patient. No, YOU, Dr. Golber, were agitating the patient, not me. I was trying to help calm him down with a soothing voice as you and your staff were screaming at him. So disgusting and unprofessional. And then Dr. Golber, you ushered his wife and myself away while you restrained him, quite aggressively and with very little, if any, explanation nor compassion to the patient and loved ones. I have zero respect for you, Dr. Golber, since you basically killed my mom 6 years ago. Yes, I'm going there, because I have distinct, vivid, horrifying memories of those events. At that time, you prescribed an 82 year-old woman, with stage 4 cancer, a muscle relaxant because you felt she had sciatica when we came to the ER with her. (Oh yes, btw, we had to sit for over 8 hours in an ER room, while my elderly mom, who was experiencing severe pain, waited to even be seen, and then was subsequently released from the ER with an Rx for sciatica???) C'mon. Well, she fell because of THE prescribed muscle relaxant by Dr. Golber, suffered a severe brain hemorrhage, was life-flighted to St. Francis and died 2 days later. Thanks Dr. Golber for prescribing my geriatric, cancerous, extremely sick mom with a drug that ultimately caused her death, and basically ruined my life. I still can't get over the grief of losing her. I will never forgive you. If George Buckman were still here, I would share this with him personally. And I'm sure he would be appalled by your behavior Dr. Golber. Next time I have to go to the ER, I WILL go to St. Margaret's instead, even though IVCH is EXTREMELY close to my home. Goodbye IVCH.
Had a planned csection and tubal scheduled, however went into labor a day early. On call doctor didn’t read my chart and didn’t do my tubal. Had to wait over six weeks to go back for tubal due to being on blood thinners and recovering from csection. By the time I was done with taking blood thinners, I no longer had Medicaid to cover the tubal 100%. Did call and complain and was told my other insurance was going to cover tubal which they did. However they did not cover all the blood work and pre and post surgery appointments that had to be done. They would have been covered by my Medicaid if my tubal would have been done when it was supposed to be and if the doctor would have read my chart. Now I’m stuck with an outstanding balance of over $400.
This hospital is a nightmare. The care is substandard. Enter at your own risks.
