feedback about Memorial Hospital of Tampa
I have to say that I have either been a patient or have had a family member at several hospitals in the city of Tampa. Memorial Hospital is by far the most impressive. From the moment we came in until the moment we left. We received incredible service. All of the staff was extremely patient, kind, efficient, and very caring. My husband was delerious from an infection, and unintentionally rude, obnoxious, and hateful to majority of the staff members but yet they were still patient, kind, and still went above and beyond to give him the best care. I would definitely recommend this Hospital to all of our friends and family thank you Memorial for making this rough time that much more bearable
Absolutely amazing ED depart (Dr. "S") as well as nurses listen with compassion. The hospitalists and Cardiology (Dr. Stauffer and staff) went above an beyond. A truly great model of care!
I went here to have surgery on my gallbladder and came back 4 months later due to severe vomiting and stomach pain. When the doctor couldn't diagnose me I went to st Joseph's and they told me I had a stomach ulcer personally I wouldn't even take my dog to memorial staff is very unpleasant and very rude. please be smart and just go to st Joseph's.
COMPLETELY DISGUSTED! Came in an ambulance, low blood pressure, temp 103, vomiting, nausea, rapid heart beat, chills, violent shakes! Past ablation for WPW (wolf Parkinson white) The ER doctor told the young nurse he was training that I was SEPTIC, i was admitted. The entire staff repeated to get my name wrong, even when writing it on the board on the wall, I was denied anything to drink untill the last few hours there, being hypoglycemic it was hard to keep my blood sugar up with all the vomiting the day before, I sweat so badly my clothes where soaked...I had to ask for something dry at which point they just stuffed my clothes into a bag still wet which i had to wear home later. But worst of all, when I got my release papers, it said OPIATE WITHDRAWALS!! I DONT TAKE OPIATES! This was accompanied by a script for Clonidine...AS NEEDED FOR WITHDRAWL??? Nothing about sepsis! Nothing about the "viral syndrome" I was told I had! As soon as they found out I had no insurance, they kicked me out and made my papers look like I was a drug addict going thru withdrawls!!!! I am going to get checked out at another hospital as my symptoms are returning! If I have a viral infection as I suspect, I WILL be suing this hospital as I should have been put in ICU!!
Stay away from all HCA hospitals. Their service and facility at this location is sub par. They took over Town and Country Hospital and down graded it. I plan to post this every where. A simple sign indicating the town and Country location is now a mental facility would have saved me a trip to their emergency room only to be transferred to a hospital on Swan road. Way on the other side of the city. Not even on a level of professionals im used to. Just don't get sick in Florida. Your screwed.
Indeed I will be contacting you further. On the morning of my discharge one nurse took my blood pressure. it registered 171/115 (no exaggeration) she phoned the nurse and asked if she should record it. Clearly the answer was no since she said she'll be back around lunchtime. Lunchtime came with lunch tray, the nurse and my discharge papers which he gingerly tried to explain away why it's okay to leave with by pressure so high. Nick? I said. people are admitted for a reading like this not released. I was so ready to get out of there it wasn't even funny. High BP or not. Outside my door were other nurses scrambling to get cab service for my neighbors. They wanted us outta there. Shout out to nurse Jenny she managed to talk me into staying 3 nights in a row. If HCA will be admitting people like me you will need more nurses like Jenny to play mediator. Never truer words spoken. FIRST IMPRESSIONS DO NOT LIE. Follow your instincts people. I will never second guess mine again.
