Worst birthing experience ever!!😓 10 months ago I gave birth to second baby here. I still get emotional thinking about what happened. The doctors were trying to have me sign papers after I was already drugged up so that if they needed to they could take me into an emergency c section. I never wanted to have a c section because I knew that I could do without. I did do it without a c section. The first set of nurses I had were wonderful and made sure they did everything they could to get me to deliver naturally the doctors not so much. The doctor who delivered my child shoved her whole hand into my womb which I thought was weird and uncomfortable.I did not want that to happen, I did not like it. I was thankful that the nurse was there that night and she was there when I delivered my baby,I was kind of happy. I think she stayed a little longer than her shift . But soon after I gave birth she left and a shift change happened another two nurses came, one was nice she had kids of her own and the other didn’t have kids of her own and was not compassionate at all. I just gave birth and the epidural hadn’t worn off yet and she was trying to have me walk and I couldn’t yet and I kept telling her my legs are numb, I can’t and she started to get very frustrated with me. She then started to push and pull me and try to force me onto the special maternity knee wheelchair. I am a very determined person so I was trying to get up and so I started to think I was permanently paralyzed or something because she told me that I should be able to get up.I completely broke down in tears because I felt absolutely helpless and emotionally and physically abused from her pushing and pulling me and making me feel less than a human. She gave up and said well if you don’t get up I’m going to have to shove a catheter to get the pee out and it’s going to hurt. It didn’t hurt because the epidural hadn’t worn off from my lower body as I was telling her. I was not being dramatic and she thought I was I wanted her out of the room because she made me feel so uncomfortable. I was crying for so long because I felt like I wasn’t going to be able to walk again I felt like maybe they did my epidural wrong but no it was just the nurse giving me a hard time and the whole time I was crying she kept asking me questions.I kept asking for one of the doctors so she could just get out ,that was a nightmare I still get sad from even thinking about it. I definitely would not recommend this hospital for anything.
I went here for my colonoscopy. I have the best two GI, doctors in the world. The staff treats me with excellent care. Thankyou, very much. Susan Raymond.
Very compassionate, staff, seemed real not fake....
Very knowledgeable medical staff...
Do NOT waste your time trying to do any kind of out patient procedure here. A month of my life wasted. They will not allow you to make any type of appointment without a referral from your doctor 1st. I've have spent the last month at my Drs office, in tears, on the phone with MIHS, back and forth with my ordering Dr, I even offered to drive the order to them. My Dr keeps faxing my orders (which I have witnessed multiple times to multiple different fax numbers) MIHS keeps saying they have not received them. Needless to say, I have felt helpless for the last month. Totally 100% helpless. Today I told them once and for all that I am going to find a different Dr. They told me that was probably for the best, that they just didnt understand how this was happening and that it has only happened with maybe 1 other patient.. yet we have been trying actively for at least 3 days a week, for the last 3 weeks. I never will get to see the supposedly amazing Dr that I spent hours researching.. bc their appointment office NEVER DID get my orders.
It a great hospital , I was born here , all the staff was caring and trusting.
