The labor and delivery department is absolutely horrible. I hate I am having my baby there. I have been here on two separate occasions. The first time I went was in May 2018 because I was feeling light headed,dizzy,and I was seeing spots. Just like another reviewer, C. Ross stated a month ago,they were not listening to the reason why they were there. The same happened to me. They thought I felt I was in labor. I had to state over and over what my concerns were. The nurse did not help me in the bed, and she did not speak. None of the nurses spoke or even told me their names. I am from another state, and the experience I am having here, are well below the standards I am familiar with.
My second visit was on June 27, 2018 for a stress test. I was wheeled up by transportation. The nurse did not speak. She took the papers from the transporter and stated she would take me from there. I am 9 mos and she had me walking all the way to the last room on the hall #18. Seems like she would have had them push me to the room. Another thing she did which I did not like was leave the door open As she was hooking up the test. Talk about patient confidentiality and privacy. My dress was pulled up and my stomach was showing. During this time, another transportation worker was entering my room with another patient. The nurse instructed the transporter to go to room 19.
Once my stress test was over, another nurse came in to release me. She told me I was all set to go. I asked her if transportation would be coming to get me and take me back down, and she looked at me and asked why I needed transportation. I told her, that I didn't feel well and I did not feel I could make it all the way back down to the ground floor by the gift shop. That's a very long walk. Let me not forget to mention that I was not given any paper towels or napkins to wipe the jelly off my stomach. I just used the sheets.
If you are expecting please check with your physician to see what hospitals they deliver. if you have an option, do not select this once. If love my physician Dr. Johnson, but if I knew the hospital where he delivers was like this, I would have a different OB/GYN. The L&D staff needs some professional development training in bedside manners. Speaking, smiling, and being friendly should be mandatory in the medical setting.
