feedback about Putnam Hospital Center
It seems that the reviews, and/or experiences, seem to vary quite a bit. My experience today was effortless, ran smoothly, and all staff were caring.
It saddens me, honestly, for those who's experiences were delayed, and/or unsatisfactory.
The overall added pressures of staff, shift restructuring in the "field," in the past 10 or so years, coupled with having to ""re-learn everything and now apply patient information a computer system,"" can be a daunting task.
Still in all, each person should receive quality and prompt attention every time. Let's keep the lines of communication open, respectful, seeking to help them, help us better.
I was locked in the ER for 5 days without any treatment and the person that was supposed to evaluate me every 6 hours never came for the last 3 days... I wasn't even sick... They tried to transfer me to a mental institute... There was an arrest made outside my hospital room... They do take blood for testing relatively fast though... I was not allowed contact with friends or family during that time (i snuck my phone in anyway)... It was horrible... I gained three pounds in 5 days because I ate so much food there as it was the only thing I could really do... I hated it... My room was right next to construction and the ambulance bay... I blame the stupid middle school principal for this...
This place rips people off. On 2 different occasions we came here for urgent care for our child. Both times it was on weekends and our doctor was unavailable so we came here. And on both occasion they sent us back home with "it'll pass - go see your doctor on Monday" while charging us more than $1000 each time. So no service costs $1000. And I saw them Googling our symptoms online. I know next time we just won't come. Yes, we will risk life but we won't give this lazy bunch a penny.
Went to the ER with blood in my urine and severe kidney pain and throwing up with fever and a UTI. I waited (normally happens in ER so I’m not complaining) and finally got a bed. I spoke to the doctor and felt mentally relieved- until the nurse came and said they were going to discharge me immediately... this wasn’t right. At all. THANKFULLY he knew that, talked some sense into the doctor and ordered me an ultrasound, antibiotic thru IV, and administered pain medicine as I was crying on the bed from my kidney pain.
I’ve been through so many pains with this hospital at all different departments. I don’t know how this hospital has any positive accountability online or in the public, I’ve grown up down the road and with everyone I’ve spoken to, the verdict is the same- literally awful. I’ve been seething since I was younger to write a review about this awful place, awful service- it makes you think most of the doctors received their degrees through a fake shotty website and I know that sounds dramatic but I swear, and this is NOT just my experience. I’ve seen it all the way growing up. I’m excited to move away to have another hospital to care for me, because I feel unsafe, uncomfortable and have to keep on top of my own doctor to make sure they’re doing the right things and correcting THEIR wrongs. I sound snobby I know but please beware. The odds of you getting a neanderthal to “take care of you” are very high.
I have too many stories to write here so I’m going to leave it with my experience today and a general overall opinion I share with some of the community. Message me for more information of personal stories and stories of others- none of them are good.
Zero star review. I took my 3 year old here with a 104 fever, 4 hours later still no dr. The triage nurse was kind enough to give her motrin after an hour and a half of us being there. There was vials of blood on the floor in the parking lot outside the emergency department, there was about 10 people in the waiting room and some were elderly people on oxygen that needed attention. In comes a young lady with her mom and she hurt her ankle, I watched her walk in say someone's name, they came and got her he kissed her on the forehead and boom out she hopped on some crutches with an air cast. Yet the are truly sick people in this waiting room and they fast track a ballet injury. Despicable place, if you want to die this is for sure the place to go. Never again, I'll take my chances elsewhere from here on in.
