feedback about Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital
My son had a minor skiing injury and required stitches. They were caring and extremely nice. We hope to not have to return but if we did ha s to we know we are in good hands. Thank you!!
They treated me so badly it was not even funny! I was bullied and yelled at by the nurse named Mary to do tests that I didn't need or want. When I tried to leave she yelled and bullied me into the tests. It's very sad but I no longer trust medical staff anymore because of this visit! Thousands of dollars they will bill me for and I left there in just as much pain as when I went in. They did NOTHING to help me but they are really good at making people feel like they dont deserve help!
Donella--it was probably the same nurse that told me "if we scrape you up off the floor after this, we'll know you're lying." After whatever non narcotic they gave me didnt take my migraine thatd id had for a week and a half a way
My dad stayed a while (2yrs and 3 mths ago) on the second floor and the care was absolutely pathetic. Some of the nurses were good, some weren't, and the management was unbelievably bad. We ended up having to have a few meetings with some of the management because of some of the horrendous things they put my dad through. They said all the right things (in a very fake and overly caring way), just to turn around and literally treat him like a farm animal. Out of respect for my dad, I'm not going to share much, but it bothers me bad enough to where I'm reviewing them in the middle of the night, over 2 yrs later. I will share one issue that isn't too personal. He was about 6'3 and over 220lbs. If you're not familiar with the hospital, it sits on top of a hill. They allowed a 70+ year old woman to take him out in a wheel chair, without the permission of immediate family, and recommended her to take him down a hill in the chair. Long story short, the wheelchair, with my dad in it, pulled her down the hill until it hit the curb. He flew out and got banged up, and they were going fast enough to where she flew OVER the wheelchair and also was injured. Mysteriously, the curb was revamped, smoothed out and painted yellow immediately afterwards. Physical therapy was also a joke. They quit on him and they stopped working with him. We had a meeting and requested to see the notes taken by pt each day. The difference between the notes and what we were being told was night and day. The negative attitude displayed by the head therapist contradicted the most of the notes which showed some progress, however minor. Some of the notes even contradicted eachother. Unless you can't make it to Manistee, TC or Cadillac before dying, I wouldn't recommend it.
Excellent staff. All very friendly and helpful, went out of their way to make sure the patient (me) was comfortable, as well as the rest of the family.
