I went around noon last Friday, and I barely was able to walk in due to how severe my pain was. They had me sit in a wheelchair and wheeled me to the waiting area. They called my name, but nobody came to wheel the wheelchair over to where I was supposed to go and with the level of pain I was in, it was difficult to stand up again. Finally another patient wheeled me over. After being taken to the back, I overheard another patient who was in a wheelchair complaining about not being seen because he wasn’t wheeled back. I had to remove my shirt and put on a gown for an EKG. I asked for privacy since it was a male staff member and he wouldn’t allow me to have privacy. Luckily, when I had to remove my bra for an X-ray, both male staff members gave me privacy. The lack of privacy when asked to change into the gown is my number one reason why I never want to go back. As someone who has been through severe sexual abuse, it is not okay to force me to disrobe in front of a male. Some of the staff members were nice, and things got better after the disrobing incident (which is what got me texting family members to come keep me company). Unfortunately, in the end, all they did was drug me up so the pain went from a 10 to a 4 and discharged me and didn’t solve the problem. My pain was back at a 10 that night and has still been excruciating over the past few days. I may have to go back to an emergency room, which is scary since my only health coverage is out of state Medicaid, so I have no options other than emergency rooms and that is if I’m lucky enough for the out of state Medicaid to work. I am never going to Manatee Memorial again and I just hope I can find a decent hospital within a reasonable drive. I’m also never again allowing a hospital to give me pain medicine stronger than Tylenol or ibuprofen unless they have a viable to solution to what is wrong.
Update: I told them up front in the emergency department that if my put of state Medicaid didn’t cover the bill that I would rather go home in pain. It didn’t cover the bill. I now have a bill of close to $2000 that I have no income or health insurance to pay all for them basically drugging me to make the pain go from a 10 to a 4 and sending me home without fixing the problem, and there are no obvious financial aid things on the website or the bill. If they had been honest up front about whether my out of state Medicaid would work, I wouldn’t have allowed them to admit me. Also, for the record, based on symptoms and how long I was in pain, I think it is likely that I had a fractured rib. Even if I have health insurance in the future, I am never going back to your hospital, and I have told everyone I know about my experience there.
Excellent delivery/maternity ward experience for us! Everyone was extremely kind, knowledgeable and patient. Our room was ample, roomy and clean. Despite the frowns you get from the hospital name, our service was top notch!
Brought my mother to the ER d\t chest pain. Reception area wS friendly. Reception clerk asked what bring us here and the answer was chest pain. She continued to ask the name, DOB and insurance info when I repeated ACTIVE CHEST PAIN. That go someone's immediate attention and my mom was walked back to a room to have an EKG. The ER staff was good and the staff on the observation floor was good. However, when a patient is taken from the floor to a another area of the hospital for testing with a time frame of an hour to be returned to her room, communication would be good from staff to the family members that are waiting. 2 1/2 hours I waited for my mom to come back from getting a TEE. I asked three different people at 4 different times to check on my mom for me. After waiting 30 minutes after my last request, I went to the desk with irritation. I got my answer and was sent to see her as the MD was late. As I gor to the cardiology testing area, I was given instruction to wait in thw waiting room and someone will come to me when the procedure was complete. No one came. The receptionists did ask me who I was waiting for. I told her and found out my mother was already back into her room. Lack of communication is my upset. Other than that, my mom said the food that the meals are great and she was treated great. Happy service for the most part. Thank you.
I want to the ER for GI pain. The only test that were done was blood work and that required four sticks to get my blood. No assessment was done by the doctor or nurse. No past medical history was taken. The only thing that was done is I was given a GI cocktail. That is basically nothing. Nobody came in to ask if it worked or if my pain is gone down. I would advise not going to this hospital if you value your life.
I was greatly by friendly staff at the ER on Wednesday June 13,2018 by friendly and fast staff. I went in thinking I had a kidney stone ....I was in a ER room within 20 minutes and diagnosed immediately. The nurse, nurse practitioner and the doctor were spot on!!
A+++ from start to finish. Thank you Manatee Memorial Hospital!!
