feedback about Mccullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital
If you anticipate any problems with the delivery of your child, it’s best to go to Cincinnati or elsewhere. I would like to start off by saying that almost every nurse that I encountered was amazing but 1 or 2 bad ones (I don’t know if I should say wicked or horrendous instead of bad) make for a traumatizing experience. Doctor Stein and Doctor Harlan are also great. Anyways, the day of delivery I arrived at the hospital for a scheduled C section, I was only 36 weeks, I was very nervous and hoping that my son’s lungs were matured enough for the outside world after 3 Celestone shots. I had a nurse that made me very uneasy and gave me a bad feeling immediately. I was hoping that I was wrong and that this would be a good experience. It’s very scary when you are in a vulnerable position and the nurse is making you uncomfortable. We will call her Nurse L. First, she asked me about previous pregnancies. I told her I had one miscarriage and she asked me if I had an abortion (when I talked to the head of nursing, after the fact, she said that medical terminology indicates that all pregnancies that do not end in live births are considered abortions. The head of nursing said she was confused as to why she would imply that I purposely ended a pregnancy and so am I.) Next, she tried to insert an IV and missed (I understand, it happens sometimes) her demeanor disturbed me though. She removed it and SCRATCHED the tourniquet off of my arm. She said nothing, she just seemed angry. I had complications and had to take blood pressure medication that causes a false positive for amphetamines (it’s called Methyldopa , look it up) and she implied that I was actually using amphetamines. She was very cold and almost seemed angry. So far, these are just petty things that she’s doing to make me nervous. During the C section everything was fine. There was a nurse practioner that came back to my room with Nurse L. My son was wheezing and the pulse oximeter said his oxygen absorption was a little low. Nurse L said she was going to call the pediatrician to see if my son should be put under the hood in the nursery. The policy is that a nurse has to stay in your room for an hour after an operation. Nurse L left the nurse practioner in my room and she expressed her annoyance. She left after about 30 minutes and Nurse L did not return for hours. My son was wheezing and making odd noises the whole time. I was very worried and depressed. I considered leaving the hospital. When I asked if this was normal I was treated like I was being over dramatic. Four hours after surgery the epidural was wearing off and I was in pain. I told her this when she entered my room. She said she would be back with medication. 35 minutes later I called her, I told her I was in serious pain. I rated it a 9. She returned 45 minutes later with medication. She said “Okay, we are going treat it aggressively this time.” She gave me ONE 5 miligram oxycodone for a pain rated at 9! ANYONE THAT HAS A NURSING DEGREE WOULD KNOW THAT I SHOULD HAVE 2. She then started pushing on my incision, which must be done but it was so painful! I was ignored for an hour and 20 minutes and my pain was so bad that I felt nauseous. It's like a sick joke. She was very rough with my baby. I just wanted her to stay away from me. By the grace of God another nurse took over and I felt so much better! I was never burdened with her again. I was at McCullough Hyde for 38 hours. My son’s lung collapsed and Doctor Baker came to tell me that he is doing needle aspiration on my son. He assured me that this was very scary and he was doing it blindly. My son was careflighted to Cincinnati Children’s. It was a horrible experience. When I left McCullough Hyde, I felt very angry about some of my experiences. I called the head of nursing and she was sympathetic. She told me that she was horrified and that there were going to be consequences. She told me that Nurse L was a charge nurse and that This was not typical behavior for Nurse L. If that is true, what provoked her to treat me this way? It’s a mystery!
I was their Friday night with a broken ankle in the emergency room. They treated me great and very nice nurses and doctors. Thanks so much for your time and help.
Terrible service. Terrible accuracy. Nice people. Terrible job for them. Try everything in your power before coming here. Going on hour 3 for waiting for confirmation of strep.
The level of incompetency that I experienced was unrivaled by anything I had seen before . I went in for a normal MRI procedure, however, the "Doctor" was unable to get the contrast in my joint (after assuring me this was a routine, straightforward procedure). Consequently they were unable to perform the MRI, and I left, after being poked and prodded with needles for 40 minutes, in worse condition than I had entered with no results. AVOID THIS HOSPITAL AT ALL COSTS.
Nurse wasn’t attentive, tore open a perfectly good Dad shirt. The free ride service from MUPD was a nice perk though.
