feedback about Medstar Good Samaritan Hospital
Doctor prescribed me the WRONG MEDICATION, resulting in nasty side effects. Couldn't even be bothered to Call me back. Supposed to follow up soon but don't think I will.
My grandma had a mini stroke(high blood pressure) I called the ambulance after her stay in a nursing home(Genesis Cromwell parkville Md👎🏽)because of severe pains as she screamed. Come to find out she was retaining urine 800cc’s and hadn’t had a bowel movement on top of that she had a severe urine infection that was causing her confusion as anyone would be after going through what she’s gone through in a month. Long story not short social worker here had a Dr call me a few days after I’d been only communicating with one particular Dr. and I’ve been asking the same questions & still No change. New Dr was called to explain to me(because I’m so slow & incompetent) they were trying to move her back into a nursing home. I asked why when she still hadn’t had any scans or X-rays done or even finished antibiotics for the infection she’s very confused(delirium! Not Dementia!) the dr kept assuring me they’re gonna take care of her in a nursing home with therapy but she’s been in a bed not able to walk like she could prior to the nursing home. I begged for a X-ray and cat scan because we need to find out if there’s a possibility that she fell. Shes (198lbs)a heavy woman and she got around fine before the nursing home & infection. I had to appeal the decision through KEPRO not to discharge in hopes of getting them to listen to my concerns and act on it. Bottom line is stay close to your loved ones and ask questions no matter how much these medical professionals try to brush you off as being crazy or Demented and keep all lab tests,diagnosis,meds,nurses daily logs, names&telephone#’s logged for your own record because people will pass the blame around quickly when your loved ones lives are turned upside down period! No compassion PS the stay was very clean/food was prepared good and staff on the 4th floor were very attentive and to help as much as they could
My son was seen on 10/24/18. I was disgusted at the treatment he received. HIPPA was not practiced, in fact another patient & her son felt the need to chime in on what the nurse & other staff had to say. This hospital is not trans or mental health friendly. As a health care provider myself I find my son's treatment disturbing. No one deserves to be treated in this manner. Giving this hospital a rating of 1 star isn't deserving. Risk management will be contacted about the manner. The ER staff need remedial classes in common sense.
I had an operation done at this hospital. It was called Good Samaritan Hospital at that time. Same place but now under different owners. I hope they cleaned house when they took over.
I can have everything done at one place...I love my doctor- she is the best.
