I have insurance , so I don't understand why they never wrote me a prescription. Why even ask me for my nearest pharmacy? I had 2 wisdom teeth removed and end up with an infection because they never gave me antibiotics or pain pills. The biggest mistake I ever made was coming here. My first and last time I'll ever come back here. Not everyone take or do drugs and alcohol. You should've wrote me a prescription. Tried calling and left messages no one returned my call . Ended up calling my dentist for a prescription for pain pills and antibiotics. HOW ARE YOU STILL IN BUSINESS?
One of the worst hospitals in Chicago. They kept my son overnight because we couldn't find a wheelchair. They kept him until 6:00pm the next day. When they finally got it together for his release, they wanted to hold him for more tests (he didn't need). Then they made him sign an ASA (it's so he can't sue if something goes wrong) and would not prescribe his pain meds. All they were looking for is more money from his worker's comp. He was ignored by the nurses and doctors both in the ER and on the orthopedic floor. Horrible place!!!!!!!
My experience here was great during my pregnancy with my last child. The nurses were absolutely fantastic. I just dislike the fact that when applying with them I feel that all applications aren’t viewed fairly. Seems as if it’s a “got to know someone” type of thing. Please reach out to candidates, some of us really truly want to work.
WARNING!!! If you care for your loved ones you will not take those hospitals word as final. So many misinformed doctors, whose information that they give to patients can be debunked with a simple phone call to a different hospital or in our case the lung Association of America. What this hospital has become is completely tragic, as someone who works in healthcare just the lack of sterile medical practice is horrifying. We had a nurse who came in to check blood sugar and placed the guys they were going to use on the nearby trashcan and then proceeded to hand it to the patient. They will come in and give medications without even informing the patient what it is why they are giving it. I have never seen a hospital so poorly run as not to even keep the patient and their family in the loop. I understand that they have many patients to see but the sole fact that when we needed a doctor to answer the families questions that it took about two hours and me asking six different nurses is insane. On top of this when one of my family members asked why they would not give her an IV the doctor responded by saying “ we are not a miracle hospital”. I’m sorry? You can’t even offer a simple explanation as to why and IV isn’t given? Why are you practicing medicine then. The doctor my family member followed up with as well is tragically misinformed and I feel like should not be continuing to practice medicine. If at all possible go get a second opinion if you are being seen here. Front desk staff clearly doesn’t enjoy working there and they allow anybody to get on the elevator to visit patients in different ICUs without even checking slips. It’s absolutely unacceptable that anybody can go visit upstairs without even saying they’re seeing a patient because nobody is checking anything and these are patients who are in critical care. Give yourself peace of mind that they are doing the right thing for your family member or even yourself because for us this wasn’t the case.
I want to share my experience when I went to the ER staff were so helpful and the waiting is not that long. I was immediately taken care off and staff and dr’s and nurses were so nice and had a very beautiful attitude. I have no complaints and I was reassured by good Dr’s there.
