Great hospital! This is my second stay here due to my pregnancies . The whole staff was so sweet to my husband and I. They go above and beyond to make sure mommy daddy and baby are comfy while they’re here. The food from the cafeteria is also good, they made sure my husband received lunch also while here in the suits. The nurses are so kind! Thank you again and again! The best place to have your baby or babies! Great job ladies!
Had a knee replacement surgery and let's just say I put myself through hell in physical therapy this morning JUST TO GET AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!! My nurse is an old lady named Sue WHO REFUSES TO LISTEN TO MY CONCERNS!!! When I needed pain medication she would delay it until she felt it was time. Perfect example: my last pain medication was at 8 30 am and as I type this in my hospital bed it's 1 08pm and I should have had it at 12 30. Sue says she'll bring them but where is Sue??? Busy doing other tasks because my brother had to go find her and ask her what's going on.
Update it is 1 10pm and just found out the doctor did NOT PUT ANY MEDICATION IN MY CHARTS so I can discharge and go home. Now I have to sit for God knows how long waiting on my prescriptions AND I STILL HAVEN'T HAD MY PAIN MEDICATION!!!!!!!!! There is NO EXCUSE for this to happen in a hospital. I WOULDN'T WISH THIS PLACE ON MY WORST ENEMY!!! STAY AWAY!
The healthcare in this state is pitiful. This hospital is the worst of them all. It was dirty and staff was definitely not competent NP, RN. If you lack the competency to do your job, then maybe you should look for something a little easier for yourself..
The wait time is always less than 30 minutes. The entire staff - doctors, nurses, intake personnel - are always caring and courteous.
My Dr. ordered 4 hours of tests to be done at River Oakes; a couple were scary and painful. I dreaded them. The staff, from the time I walked in the door, were friendly, kind, compassionate, encouraging, and professional. They walked me from one test location to the next and passed me off to a kind smiling staff member. I never had to wait long between test. They explained everything being done and why it was being done to aid in my Drs. evaluation for my treatment. I noticed others being tested were being treated as I was. The test I expected to be 9-10 pain level was only 3-4 and the technician asked me questions about my Grands during test to get my mind off of it. Praise the Lord.
