feedback about Oroville Hospital
They wouldn't feed me or give me water for 3 weeks. They drugged me and told me my organs were shutting down. I demanded the tubes out left and ate a burger and I was fine. They tried to kill me cause I listen to metal. They interrogated me on drugs they gave trying to destroy my case against the guy who hurt me. Also no referrals to help with my injuries. The muscle keeps tearing and is now going up my neck. They did an mri on me and I need it.
I was a patient twice this year at Oroville Hospital this year. The first stay was 4 days. I was admitted through the Emergency Room and then admitted. The staff was wonderful. From the nursing staff and the ER doctors to the CNA's were wonderful. The room was not as nice. The bed was horrible and the two roommate's loud and noisy, not hospitals fault I know. The tv didn't work very well either. The maintenance fellow looked at it and said there was nothing he could do to improve the tv. Taking a shower was impossible due to shower shortage and I believe the RN's could have definitely used more CNA's. I was on clear liquids so cannot comment on the food for this visit.
The second stay was a better stay. Again the Emergency Room Doctors and Nursing Staff were great. The wait for a bed was over night and my room was clean and quiet. Thec tv in this room worked fine. Luckily I was in a private room this time. Nursing staff again was excellent. The food was very good.
Still looking forward to New hospital being built at this time.
Will only go there if my life absolutely depends on it. Nurse Ruthie Callaway is the rudest, worst nurse Ive ever experienced. Made me feel so uncomfortable and like my health didn't matter at all. She's so terrible that she changed my opinion of the entire hospital, even nurses in general.
Go anywhere else to avoid her. Thank me later.
Wow some of the staff here is off beat... come from a stacked medical family and I am dismayed at the lack of consistency and bedside manner exists! Just for some...apparently most are on the day shift... night shift has been awsome from my nurses and other nurses on the floor interacting with their patients.... so many qualified down to earth people out there that would help and keep indecent and immature talk out of a professional hospital. Needless to say I was born in this hospital and my generation has not helped to fix or better this regard at all
Do you want someone dead or to get an infection? Well this is the place to bring them. The day before Father's day last week, I brought a friend to Oroville hospital. I had found my friend severely dehydrated crawling on the floor with a very high blood sugar, and with diabetic ketoacidosis. Of course I did not know this at the time when I had to carry him out of his home and into my car. After driving my friend out of the mountains and to the nearest hospital, which is Oroville hospital, I would Witness an unprofessionalism that would make Rideout Memorial Hospital look like a palace. That says something considering right out Hospital in Marysville scores in the top three worst hospitals in the country every year. My first encounter after calling ahead was an orderly yanking on my friend who used to be a Pro Motorsports Rider, by his screwed together/fuse together limbs. Staff member allegedly did not want to hurt his back lifting him, as he told my incoherent friend. Finally after my friend woke up from a comatose State of Shock screaming in pain, I decided to get the alleged professional staff Oroville hospital out of the way. I had to lift my friend from under the arms into a wheelchair by myself. Keep in mind my friend only weighs about a hundred and twenty pounds. Shortly after this the nurse in the ER room would blow two veins mediately within the first 10 minutes. Eventually the nurse would would call for someone with more experience, as my friend was screaming and crying in pain. The ER had no air conditioning, the staff would not bring a fan or ice packs for my friend to cool him down. When he would finally be admitted to the ham unit approximately 10 hours later, the care from the nurses was a little bit better. However the doctor for that ward would come in approximately two days later, while my friend still didnt have his vitals in check. Also my friend was still suffering from diabetic ketoacidosis. The doctor did not even announced that he was a doctor while I was there visiting my friend to see if you needed a ride home yet. This doctor would then release my friends with all of his complications still intact. According to my friends regular care provider this was too soon and gross negligence on the part of the hospital. The doctor did not answer any of my friends questions he had about being a brand new diabetic, simply walked out and went on to his other business, without any level of professionalism or education of his patient. I was not there for what would occur a day later. I guess from what I understand my friend went in hallucinating, and still suffering the effects of what had originally put him in the hospital. He was crawling on the asphalt to the ER door from what I understand, and security would treat him like dirt, instead of letting him see a doctor or nurse immediately. He would sit in the ER waiting room for 10 hours and never be seen. While they admitted him with armband, he would never be seen. Lucky for him his primary care physician with see him quick because of the emergency, and get him in right away. Without dr. Spiva, Oroville hospital surely would have killed my friend. He is in Enloe today still suffering from diabetic ketoacidosis and the complications of high blood sugar as a new diabetic. If you want someone to live take them to Enloe from what I have seen today. If you've got someone to grind an axe with or want dead, don't worry about doing it yourself; just bring them to Oroville hospital and let them do it for you.
