Every visit there has been a nightmare. Once in the ER they screwed up the simple process of taking a blood sample.
They let a student do their first ever live attempt on me. Blood was splattered on the walls, my arm was soaked with blood and soaked the sheets/hospital gown. The person with me even asked if she needed help. It looked like a crime scene.
Another time I was admitted they overdosed me on morphine, not realizing they gave twice the normal dose until after.
Another time they also accidentally doubled the dose of nitroglycerin. 4 days later a nurse told me I was lucky I came in because they said it was something quite serious. The day after that the money people came in. I said I had no insurance... later that day they told me I was fine and could go home, what a miracle!
I went in once because I was barely able to stand from immense back pain. The doctor came in, said "you're sitting so you must be fine" and left after less than a minute. The bill was still a few thousand.
Yet another time I had to take the ambulance there. The bill? Over $4000. All they did was check my blood pressure on the way. Does that thing run on gold?
The billing is a joke. Every department and every doctor will send you a separate bill. So expect to see a flood of bills in the mail.
A former employee used to tell me about how often people would be shocked to find out their stay cost them over $10,000 a day, just for the room. That is not including the other bills they would get.
Then there is the ER. I've seen people in labor sitting there screaming, someone with a large hook stuck through their face people vomiting all over themselves... and they just have to sit there and wait a few hours to go behind the door, then a few more hours behind that. Even if the ER does no tests or anything on you, you can expect to ve there over 8-12 hours. I'd rather have dental surgery at the DMV.
The final straw against them would personally knowing 2 families that lost a love one there due to being given the wrong medication.
This 'for profit' hospital is a disgrace.
