feedback about Monongahela Valley Hospital
Went to the ER when I was having pressure on my left side and elevated blood pressure. I was taken back to a room that they still cleaning. I got in the room and sat on the bed for 20 minutes and registration finally came sat another 20 minutes and still no nurse. I had a headache and still nobody came. Got up and went home such poor service.
On August 2, 2018 while traveling I was admitted to the hospital after an ER visit. I have nothing but respect for the hospital staff--housekeeping through nurses and physicians--who were very professional and caring. My stay was above average in all respects (I've been unfortunate enough to be treated in enough hospitals to know), and for the size hospital MVH is the services provided were handled professionally and with compassion.
Arrived at ER and was treated for a urinary tract infection that had gone systemic, then sent to the floor with an order for Dilaudid every four hours, as needed. Once on the floor, Dr. Violago presented herself, removed the order for Dilaudid and replaced it with Toradol. The chills and pain increased and I asked for the Dilaudid. That's when the nurses informed me of the Toradol. I took the Toradol, waited a while, then told the nurses the Toradol did nothing. I also asked for a heavy blanket of the sort used in ICU. I was told they would contact Dr. Violago, and that they didn't have a heavy ICU blanket. Dr. Violago could not be found at the hospital and did not answer her cell phone. I told the nurses to get my paperwork ready, that I'm leaving. So, I left and arrived at another hospital with a temperature of 101.5. This is the same Mon Valley Hospital where, several years prior, I presented at the ER with chest pains. Once heart was ruled-out I was admitted and a doctor I could barely understand told me they were going to do x-rays or MRI of my back, which I told them had occasionally bothered me. I refused, removed the heart monitor, and walked out to the nurses' station. The telemetry unit didn't even know I had removed the monitor. I returned to the room and related to my roommate, who indeed had a heart attack earlier, what had just transpired. He said, "Well, that makes me feel real good."
I was admitted to the hospital after I had a severe asthma attack my heart rate was really high and I couldn't breath. They refused to give me anything to help the cough which was causing me to vomit in my oxygen mask. I couldn't sleep and they told me I had to wait 12 hours before I was allowed anything not even Tylenol. I do not recommend this place to anyone. There's a reason they are nicknamed deathvalley. The food is horrible the staff is horrible they ask what they can do to make you feel better and you tell them then they say no you can't have that for 12 hours. I took the cough meds 5 hours ago what cough medicine says you can't take for 17 hours.
This place is full of incompetent people. how do you loose a sample dropped off for testing and say you were never there. unreal!
