Lots of scary inconsistencies during my ER visit tonight. Witnessed with my own eyes a blood clot in my leg during my ultrasound test. Fantastic technician who I really liked reluctantly answered my questions and confirmed that she found a clot. Once i was back in the waiting room, the doctor came in and said no clot found. I asked him and the nurse to verify. They sent in the lead nurse to tell me that the ultrasound tech should not have spoke to me because it's against policy. What kind of hospital has a policy that forbids the people administering the exams from speaking to the patients? The next problem I experienced was when the doctor told me he was going to prescribe one medication, but ended up prescribing something totally different. The final straw was that the diagnosis report listed THE WRONG LEG!!! Good thing I didn't need surgery tonight. A few nice people there, I do not recommend this hospital and don't plan on returning. Don't worry though, I'm sure their billing department runs smooth as silk.
Really great experience with the Women's Center/birthing program and the nurses are so amazing! They have a few post-birth classes too which were pretty good.
Yesterday my grown daughter was having chest pains and we went to the emergency room to have her checked out. Other than the woman at the window we initially spoke to, everyone was great! Within minutes of our arrival, they had her in a room and were running tests. Her main nurse, Ariel, did an excellent job. She helped to calm my daughter down, was fun to be with and made a scary experience pleasurable. She was knowledgeable of supplements and told us how B vitamins, which my daughter had started taking, had caused similar symptoms for her. When Dr Jan Brown came in, my daughter was already at ease. We were both impressed with him. He had a good rapport with her, but also was very knowledgeable of supplements, which I have found many doctors do not. He even gave her the hours he would be in for the next few days in case she had any questions or issues. Fortunately, she was ok. Both of us were very impressed by the care and promptness given her by Ariel and Dr Brown. Dr Brown even answered some questions I had and gave me a suggestion about a supplement I take.
My father was a patient at LRMC for 2 days before he passed away but while there we received the best care. He was in the ICU and everyone there went above and beyond to help us with his passing. We had the same ICU nurse for the two days he was there. His name was Ryan and he was amazing. Ryan couldn't have been kinder to us as my dad was passing. Thank you
Unfortunately, we had a poor experience. The admissions and emergency room nurses and doctors were super. They were professional, attentive and absolutely everything we needed and more. However, after admission things went downhill. The surgeon the emergency room called took a few days to show up. The GI doctor never did an examination. The nurses tried to cover and told us when to expect MRI's x-rays etc. However I was there in the morning and they were doing x-rays as scheduled. But when I returned at noon they are doing s-rays again and told me they had not been done. The CT scan was done but they told me they were going to do it and I had to tell them it had already been done. AND the MRI was never done according to the nurse. Lastly they move the patient in the middle of the night without explanation and put her in a room with a person that had a seizure and kept yelling. I ask her to be move but it was not done. Lastly, they gave her a laxative when she had not eaten in 5 days.....we are not happy.
