I had my failed spinal fusion ( pseudarthrosis) repaired by Dr. Hain on 9/11/17. Original one was done in FL in Oct. 2012. But due to RA and extreme spinal scoliosis the hardware failed and it lossenned. Imagine the pain I have been in the past year!
I read these reviews prior to surgery which caused me some anxieties. But let me assure you. The staff I had from the nurses in pre-op, Anasthesiologist, Dr. Hain, Post-op. Etc., we're great!
To those that made mention of the lack of pain management. It was rough. Managing my pain was litteraly a Pain!
They had to hold back on my pain medication. I did have the patch, had pills, the button and IV push. But at times, I could not have some of them when the time was due. BECAUSE my oxygen levels were falling. Remember, Opiods slow your breathing. That's why we hear so many times that people are dying from opiods abuse.
To those that gave bad reviews. They might not have understood this. The staff were only looking out for them and for my safety. And I thank them.even though my body was shaking due to the amount of pain I was experiencing.
I wished I didn't have to leave there. I was discharge to a nursing home/rehab facility. As young as I am. This was not a nice experience. In fact. The worse experience of my life. I had to call my Doctor's office within 24 hours to get out of the facility off of Grover. There is NO WAY I would have survived there for a month. Talk about lack of pain management! I got there at 1:30 and their pharmacy didn't get my meds done until 9 P.M. (this was 9/14).
However, Discharge from NSH was smooth. Staff, again were great. They had everything ready. They even sent me off with 3 packs of cryotherapy ice with the ice belt. Gave me extra clear bandage covers to take, along with cups for the collection of my Jackson Pratt. In case the facility I was going to did not have them. And I AM SO THANKFUL that the nurse gave me a dose of my meds early. She said it would take their pharmacy a little time to fill my prescriptions. (8 hours!!!)
I would have had to call 911 if she didn't have the forethought of doing this!
I hope this helps someone. Surgery can cause high anxiety. And when you read bad reviews, about a place, it makes it even worse. Maybe, it was a different Doctor and different team. But, I am speaking for Doctor Hain and his Team. 5 STAR TREATMENT
