I like to start of by saying that this is my first time going to Olive Hospital, clean floors, friendly employees, friendly staff, and the surgents professionals and such great people with amazing smiles making me feel like I'm in the right place. I recommend this hospital to anyone.
Extremely disappointed and disgusted at this hospital. Poor medical care. Do not go there inpatient if you are diabetic. They have no clue what they are doing. When I asked for a school note for my daughter because she had been there for 6 days, their reply was the Dr. Don't give Dr. Excuses and they were too busy. That I needed to speak to a Social Worker. There was no aftercare plan for my daughter, and I was handed her prescription without any explanation. I was told to sign papers before I could even read what I was signing. Pitiful excuse for a hospital.
I used to always speak very highly of this hospital, until today... I was so upset and shocked to see how their E.R Doctor treated my 80yr old grandmother. I took her in because her feet had major discoloration and she had been in major pain for several days now. Being how she's a diabetic, this was very concerning... Well, the doctor comes in and asks us, what did we expect he do for her? He was very callous and unsympathetic... I will "not" take her nor anyone else there again. I must say though, their staff and nurses were very nice and helpful. :)
Don't let the exterior fool you, this hospital is a top notch with faculty that is high caliber with professorship at UCLA. They serve uninsured and insured alike and treat everyone with respect and kindness regardless of their ability to pay. This hospital supersedes all other community hospitals in the region.
This hospital makes me sick. The nurse at the counter sent me down the street knowing I have an epelepsy problem. When I returned to the hospital same day they said it was an error on there part it was over looked. How is this possible when the first person you see types in the check in condition I've been here for six hours. Don't go here period they think there better than you. They neglect the patients and they demorilize you. I asked to talk to the charge and was reffered to talk to the supervisor ahha if I wanted to talk to the bag boy I would have said so. Don't go here period or you will be in danger of your life!
