This is absolutely the worst hospital ever.
I'm pregnant, and have high risk of complications. I've been having extreme side pain, and have a history of ectopic pregnancy. I've been waiting for over 2.5hrs, and they keep putting me off. Still waiting to be seen.
Another man even left that appeared to have serious injuries and was covered in blood, because they were taking so long.
What's funny is I shouldn't have even came here, because this is where I came when I had my ectopic pregnancy and they just SENT ME HOME! Then it ruptured a day later, and I had to be rushed to emergency surgery. Luckily Peace health had my back, and did a good job. If you can ever make it to that hospital over this one, do it.
I went in due to fatigue from an infection. I entered and saw 50+ people. Normally a Sunday night, is slow, not this night. So I checked in and got ready for a three hour wait.
Imagine my surprise when after 30 min, the triage nurse called me and then a little less than 45 minutes I was speaking with a doctor and since they'd tested the urine sample, they gave me a prescription and I was out.
95 minutes beginning to end.... Pretty efficient workers there....oh, but the drinks from machine are $2 ea.... even for water.... ouch....
ATTENTION!!!! If you are having a baby here BRING YOUR OWN FORMULA!! even if you
plan on breast feeding, your milk does not come in for 2-4 days maybe longer mean your baby isn’t eating for 2+ days & they will not give you formula here!! Also know they will charge you here for nursery stay (they have no nursery!) they will charge you as tho they care for your baby and took care of him. Mean while he never leaves the room. They say babies are clean and hardly bath them, instead helping get rid of all that dead skin they are born with, my son is just now (almost 3 mo later) getting over baby acne with extremely dry skin. (We apply baby oil, Vaseline & lotion (all at once) daily). They will tell you breast feeding is the only route and that it’s normal for babies to cry, it is normal however your baby will cry more if the baby is hungry & you can’t feed him cause you haven’t produced milk! (I would avoid “baby friendly” hospitals all together had I known they are everything but baby friend) your baby will be happy sweet & not crying if you just feed him! You do however have to bring him to the breast, try both side for a while, then give him a bottle. But do your self a favor just have the baby at home and go to a farther hospital! Avoid this breast feeding mother shaming over charging hospital!!! (Staff was great however did everything they were allowed to do, I’m sure they hate this place and how unfriendly it is to babies)
I went to this hospital because of a dangerous infection and wasn't tended to for 3+ hours. Not even a nurse to check in on me within those 3 hours. So as I was getting dressed to go to my hospital and the nurse and doctor walks in. Now keep in mind that it was a very slow night. The doctor told me she forgot about me and it was her fault because of another patient needed immediate care. Which was understandable, but someone could have came to check on me? The bad part, they had a police officer across the hall from where I was, and not to mention, all the other doctors and nurses where just standing around listening to me yell at the doctor. Is that all they do is stand around? They need to get their priorities straight! I could have died from the infection had I not gone to my hospital! As soon as I'm completely ok, I will take action for this issue! Hopefully this doesn't happen again to someone else!!!!!!
I had such a negative experience in their birth center recently. I delivered my daughter there in 2017 and LOVED it but when I went in with some preterm labor concerns at only 20 weeks 3 days this time. The nurse first of all seemed to be annoyed that I came in in the first place even though I was told to do so from advice and then said to me that she wasn't even going to worry about hooking up the heart beat monitor to listen to babies heart or do any ultrasound because my baby wasn't viable anyway. I could not even believe what I was hearing. I understand that if I went into labor there is a HUGE chance of baby not surviving that early, but for there to be such a lack of empathy or care for my feelings was insane.
