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!
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, 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.
I was brought via ambulance on Sunday the 9th. Everyone that has helped me have gone over and abound. Most kind staff I've ever experienced. On 6th floor kudos to Daphne, Vanessa,Maya,Sharon,Brit Brit, Miss White. Wanda Hope I've left no one out but you are incredible calmed fears helped me realize that I matter to them thanks ladies and guys love to you
All my doctors are located between Medical West and Bessemer Clinic. They have been serving my medical needs since 1994. They have some of the most caring, patient and experienced staff and physicians. I would recommend that you give them a try if you haven't. They really cater to the elderly and the wait time isn't bad either. Parking is a plus. I used doctors at Brookwood and some of the downtown UAB clinics and the parking was horrible and the wait time was long.
I came into your ER tonight as directed by the on call surgeon after having surgery yesterday and being in major pain. Not pain due to surgery but pain to where I could not breath it was hurting so bad. Not once did a nurse check on me. Not once was I given anything for pain. A chest X-ray was done and a breathing treatment was given. I was told that I needed to use heat to help the pain but they were going to treat the bladder infection I had (that was not why I came in!!!). Nurse rushed in there then to get me out. So not only was I not helped and still going home in severe pain even after I was told to go there but I felt like a dog. I’ll NEVER step foot in your hospital ever again. Your nursing staff doesn’t care about patients. They care about rushing to the Subway in the building to get their salad before they close.
