feedback about Palm Springs General Hospital
My mom was admitted to this hospital for a couple of days after a bad fall in May 2018. She says she was very well treated here, she had good attention from the healthcare staff, liked the food, they did plenty of tests to make sure she was OK, etc. My mom usually complains about everyone and everything, so to have her say that she was very satisfied with her stay here is nice. I'm sure other people have bad experiences here and their opinions are valid, however, for this one stay at least it was a positive experience.
I suffer from numerous health conditions that have significantly and negatively affected my quality of life.I am also a very low income and uninsured person,so the bulk of my medical care is through Jackson.However,my means of transportation is very poor and I often have absolutely no way of making it from North Hialeah to Jackson.Two days ago,on Saturday,i had no other choice but to go to Larkin palm springs in severe pain due to blood clots in the veins of my spermatic cords. The pain in my pelvic area and lower back was so intense that I hardly could even walk or stand up. My heart rate was very rapid and I was even sweating. I was admitted to the hospital for observation because they also found a fecal obstruction but not without me having to fight and advocate on my behalf as a patient.Despite my continuing severe pain and complete lack of improvement the ER doctor was ready to just discharge me and even claimed that there was nothing your hospital could do to further help me. When I continued to advocate for further inhospital care he only became annoyed instead of really wanting to help.
DO NOT COME HERE. Transfer your loved ones out. Outdated and dilapidated facilities, poor hygiene, terrible smell, broken system's, delays, mostly apathetic staff that seemingly couldn't get employed elsewhere. Expect language barriers and outdated standards of care. Errors abound. This place has a reputation for being the place where old people go to die.
The only reason this hospital is getting one star is because zero was not an option. To start off, in the ER, one of the nurses was speaking to the doctor about my father. She mentioned his insurance and then said "you know what that means, suck 'em dry".
He needed to be admitted and the nurses on his floor could not be bothered to find him 1 pillow. Not an extra pillow, just the basic pillow you expect to get when you are admitted to a hospital room. They never bothered getting him one so I had to go out and BUY him a pillow. Add on to this that he was admitted in order to receive antibiotics. They claimed to not have any paperwork on that hours after he was admitted...from their own ER. After calling his doctors to speak with the nurses the paperwork mysteriously showed up on their desks.
When this hospital was taken over by Larkin I expected things to improve. Sadly, it seems to have worsened.
Dr Miguel Oyarzun, the best all around!
