Seven years ago my son had surgery there and it was a good hospital. It has totally deteriorated since tthen. Had thyroid gland removed in August. Surgeon nearly broke my neck pulling my head backward. Horrible headache! Room filthy. Bed covers fell on floor, they finally brought fresh ones and set them - folded - on a table. Refused to even bring me a coke.Phone and bedside table in room broken. Left w/prescription for a drug to which I'm allergic. Time to bulldoze this dump and fire entire staff, starting w/doctors!
This nurse we have on duty is very disrespectful and racist. You work at a hospital where you need to be patient and compassionate with the patients. Very disappointing. If you don't like your job, please leave.
I was in a head on collision 3 years ago. They never checked my spine or my head, told my my ankle had a small crack that wouldn't require surgery, and a broken wrist. Well 3 years later my ankle that had a crack was my heel and ankle we're crushed. I'm now a below knee amputee as well as my arm is still messed up. I have PTSD and back and neck pain that causes headaches almost daily. Poor...just poor
Super slow wait time once I got back to the room. Apparently the radiologist didn’t read my ultrasound & they had to send it to a different one. I was there for almost 4 hours & possibly miscarrying. I wasn’t told why I was bleeding either, Just that there was no heartbeat & that I’d just have to do a follow up with my obgyn & they sent me on my way.
*Update* I did end up having a miscarriage 11-27-18
Exactly 3 days after my first visit at medical west when I first noticed the bleeding. I couldn’t get into any obgyn’s because it was a holiday weekend so I ended up passing the fetus in my apartment & was in agony, went back to the ER with the fetus in a ziplock bag, they did a vaginal ultra sound & saw nothing, confirmed a miscarriage, sent me home that night; when I got home 30 minutes later, I passed a decent size placenta. Not sure how they didn’t see that on the ultra sound. I won’t be returning.
***Update*** I had to pass rotting uterine tissue for a week & a half that was the size of half of the palm of my hand on my own at my house since they didn’t want to perform a D&C. This is why women’s health is important & Alabama needs to get with the times!
Terrible staff all of them. If you want to be treated like a human being don't go there.
