feedback about Marquette General Hospital
This is the 3rd time I’ve had to stay here during my pregnancy but to finally deliver my baby and have had a great experience with the family birthing unit so far. Sometimes it can be hit or miss with nurses but I know they are so busy but Kelsey the RN is by far one of the best I’ve had and always was so quick to help during 2 of my stays. She really goes above and beyond to help in anyway.
Reguarding the Emergency Dept: Unfortunately, nowadays you have to ask as many questions as possible. Sometimes this isn't possible when you are out of town and your wife has to take a child to the ER. My child was seen for a simple matter and was diagnosed immediately. Treatment began immediately. That should be the end of the story. However, a number of unnecessary and expensive tests were done that are not indicated as standard workup. without me present, my wife was confused and did not understand what was going on. Despite what the patient bill of rights says, having a nurse simply ask "do you have any questions" or "we're just going to do this for a test" is deemed appropriate even though it does nothing to explain why it is necessary or how it will help direct treatment. This issue is not unique to MGH. In talking to another medical professional who specialized in pediatrics he admits to seeing this happen a lot in the ER setting. So while I wasted $1000 on tests after a diagnosis and treatment was started you can avoid this by asking: what is this test for AND how will it help treatment (and how much does it cost). Thankfully, I can bear the occasional unexpected expense. While the testing done did not guide or contribute to treatment, the treatment was spot on and my kiddo is healthy.
If you take anything away from this review, remember this tip: WHAT IS IT FOR, HOW WILL IT DIRECT TREATMENT, HOW MUCH DOES IT COST. Ask it often. Put it on a sticky note and tape it to your medical card.
I have been here in the past and always had great care. However this time I was made to feel so unimportant and dismissed I actually checked myself out . And considering I was in for heart related issues I was very disappointed. I am aware I checked myself out , but they couldnt give me any discharge instructions or anything!!!! Do I take it easy? Do I go to work? What?
We took my daughter for surgery today. We were there an hout before her scheduled appointment as we live three hours away. Her surgery was scheduled for 7:45 am, they came and got her a few minutes before 11:00. The surgery went quickly but they lost her in transit. When we got back to the room she was supposed to be in, there was blood on the floor, pop cans left on the table, both garbages full, TV on and no daughter. I went out to the nurses station, they had no clue. A few minutes later my daughter showed up still loopy. It took them two hours after that to discharge her, but let her walk out with us. What hospital in the United States let's patients walk out after surgery?! The hospital is dirty and needs a visit from the CDC.
This hospital should be shut down!! Killing ppl everyday, you don't know what your doing, obviously by all the reviews. You killed my aunt and didn't even care, just snubbed it. Should of sued you incompetent ppl. Now I lost the most important woman in my life. And your still killing and hurting ppl. Unreal
