feedback about Providence Portland Medical Center
So far they seem to be taking great care of my family member in ICU... however I will say the waiting room and lobby attached to ICU is by far the nastiest and dirtiest space I’ve seen in a public building let alone a hospital in years. Stained seats/couches, dirty carpet, loads of bedding/garbage in the waiting area, and disgusting restrooms. We had so stay here over night and could hardly relax because we were afraid to touch anything but the walls.
The one star is for the kind nurses at this place. The facility itself is awful. I was in a recovery overnight that was so small that the the nurse had to move the table to take vitals. There also wasn’t a shower and there were pipes overhead that kept me up all night. The food delivery took several hours and the time to get a prescription from the in-house place took forever. Oh and the parking is inadequate for visitors. It took my husband twenty minutes circling to find a place.
My review is for the nurses and L&D team at Providence.
On October 13th I was admitted because my 32 week fetus was having random heart decelerations.
Over the next 2 weeks I was kept hospitalized on 24 heart rate monitoring and he (my baby) continued having on average 10 decels a day. Each time, nurses would rush in and we would change my positions and administer oxygen and IV fluid until he recovered within a couple minutes. There was a plan in place to deliver by emergency c-section if he ever showed signs of not recovering.
The nurses, OB, L&D and the entire Oregon Clinic Midwifery East team (I usually worked with Denali, Patel, Bley, Caldwell and Polo) worked tirelessly over those couple weeks to keep my baby and I safe. On October 26th, on his 34th week of gestation, we decided to deliver by regular cesarean surgery.
He was born at 12:36pm healthy and handsome, and we discovered the cause of his heart decelerations were because of a nuchal cord around his neck.
I have no doubt in my mind that the team of physicians and nurses saved the life of my baby.
I am eternally grateful, and would recommend The Oregon Clinic Midwifery East, as well as the entire L&D team at Providence in Glisan to anyone and everyone. We had an incredibly difficult and unique situation and they handled it beautifully.
My son is now on his journey to homecoming in the NICU at Providence and improving everyday. Thank you to all involved.
As pleasant as going to the hospital can be.
October 2017 - Doctors in the emergency department quickly diagnosed my husband and scheduled him for surgery the next morning, saving his life.
Thank you, Providence Portland for your prompt actions and for treating both my husband and myself with respect and compassion. Thank you for allowing me to stay by my husbands side while he recovered. And thank you for the professional behavior of your nurses and physicians. Other hospitals in the area could learn a great deal from you.
