feedback about Macneal Hospital
I want to make a revised review of the place, so hear me out. First of all, the place is gorgeous, have a nice modern feel to it. Second of all, the service is handled poorly, and they sometimes give the wrong medications. I have gone here 3 times, with 2 out of the 3 comings being not so well.
First - 2005: 6 months (or weeks, I forgot) after I was born, I developed Whooping Cough, a serious breathing conditions, which ironically, I was supposed to get soon. We came here (cause I was born here), to see what wad wrong, and they said I was "fine".
Second - 2013: I opened my eyebrow. They stitched me up and I was fine. 5/5
Third - 2017: I developed a reaction from a band-aid (Don't ask why) and we came here to check it out because it was itchy and inflamated. They said it was an allergy, and prescribed me STEROIDS. Went to Rush Pediatric Center, they said that it was just reaction of some sort, and gave me medicine that actually HELPED. I nearly took a drug illegally.
So, just to end a long review, 2/5.
My mother had open heart surgery here. After a week of being there, she wasnt doing so well so they moved her to Medical University of Chicago were she passed. A few months later my uncle ends up in the hospital and is slowly dying and his son is willing to give him a kidney and part of his liver, but they don't want to do the surgery because of fear that he will die. We want to take the risk because he's going to pass in a few days. This hospital is terrible because they killed my mother and now my uncle.
The quality of service at this hospital has plummeted drastically. A few of the nursing staff seem to forget that they are only nurses and not doctors. The education they have received in nursing school has suddenly given them a medical degree and the right to consult patients. They emit an odor of lawsuit and malpractice.
Horrible nurses horrible doctors horrible patient care I walked out in this hospital. I had surgery done a prior day and had severe pain all night which took for ever to get proper medication. The next day dr said I was good to go around 8am so I was waiting for my primary doctor to give me my discharge papers around 10:30am I walked out the damn hospital with a 10/10 pain from my surgery done on me. I would high recommend for patients here to move along to the next hospital not his one. Not this one at all. I’ll be calling patient relations for this matter and if you have been mistreated in the past by this hospital report your case to patient relations.
I didn’t want to give it one star, more like a zero operator services are unbelievable, exactly how many do they have, 1 no excuses for the long wait time on the phone
