I’ll start with the positive, most of the nurses are caring and wonderful. They give their best disputes the fact that they are in the middle between upset, frustrated patients and rude, arrogant, uncaring Hospitalist.
In the ER you are likely to wait hours to get in to a room. To be seen by a Dr. who is in a hurry to move to next patient. I have gone into OGH numerous times for Diabetic issues and also what turned out to be heart issues. On numerous occasions I have been told my heart was fine I was having anxiety issues. Go home reduce stress and relax . Well I spent $$$ and went on vacation only to have a heart attack 2 days in. So much for 2 stress tests and the Drs. say my heart was fine.
While you are in hospital you will likely suffer in uncontrolled pain. As Drs. are unwilling to treat with meds. that actually work. Hospital errors are frequent. I was nearly overdosed with insulin due to lab be lengthy in sends results. I had a roommate whom the wheel broke off her bed while nurses tried repositioning her. Hoyer was used to lift her wheel slid back in place and they left her in broken bed.
Meals are often not accurate with your diet needs.
Overall hospital is very poorly ran, with uncaring god complex Doctors. Making more money off trumps patient needs and good moral practice! Avoid if at all possible. From here on out I will do my best to go elsewhere!!
