feedback about Licking Memorial Hospital
Had a good experience during my stay. If you have realistic expectations and dont expect to be waited on like your at some 5 star resort only rich people can afford I think you will come away with a good experience too. The staff were pleasant and kind.
Yes, it can take time for them to get to you during the day. There is much more activity going on. From taking people to get testing, walking them in the hallways, looking for new medications if a person can not tolerate what they are currently being given, monitoring patients vitals, and moving people between the bed and chair/bathroom. This all takes a lot of time and should be obvious if only you take a moment to think about the Other patients who are also in the hospital.
Being as self sufficient as possible while laid up in bed is hard, but it is doable and takes some of the load off the staff caring for patients so when you actually do need them they can get to you and others quicker. For instance, can you pee in the urinal in bed. Yes its unpleasant, but just this one simple act because its done several times a day per person can shave a lot of time off from dealing with people and get you help faster if the majority of other patients works together towards this goal.
So yea, for me my stay was a good one.
Cafeteria is awesome and so cheap. Food is delicious, always fresh and staff is always so pleasant!
So I was there last night and lets just sum this up quick as possible. I pushed my call button and 45min later I had to google the phone number to the main desk and called it so they could go get a nurse for me. I'm not kidding at all.
Most of the techs are great. So are half the nurses. All the doctors have control issues and don't know their head from their rear end, and as bull headed as they come.
Because of this, and their failure to properly follow protocol, I would rather die of a flesh eating disease than go back.
Even if I did go back, I'd still probably die.
18 months ago, I was in for several days d/t pancreatitis. My care was excellent. Recently, I was shocked to find myself admitted to the CCU Unit for several days, and had much testing, including a heart cath. Praise be to God, all turned out well. Problems were evidentally related to meds and low potassium . Again, the care I received was excellent! Each person that dealt with me, touched me, was kind and compassionate. Being a retired RN, I can have high expectations of all who work with the sick and their families...my desire for professional, compassionate care was definitely given. I am grateful. When you are no longer the employee of the hospital, but lying sick and apprehensive in the bed, everything is different. I cannot say enough good about Dr Tekleyes, my cardiologist! I have not had such attentive, kind care since the retirement of Dr Mary Beth Hall. And I greatly appreciate the same excellent follow up care from Dr Sarah Lim and her kind staff!
