feedback about Riverside Methodist Hospital
I would like to thank Riverside hospital for the wonderful care we received with the birth of our first child. From the moment we walked in the doors to when we left, everyone involved was helpful, knowledgeable, and caring. As new parents we had many questions and were comforted by the staff. In a world where it seems customer service is declining and happiness in the workplace is less common, it was great to see everyone we encountered was happy and helpful. Having a lactation consultant stop by each day was a major help. We also appreciated the three meals daily provided in the room for the mother and father. This allowed us to focus more on our baby. We feel very blessed to have a healthy baby and great experience considering this life event is scary and exciting.
I went to the emergency room here and the staff was so nice. Katie was my nurses name and she was so sweet, there was a brown haired lady that helped with me a lot who was extra kind but i can't recall her name. The lady who took my blood was very nice and upbeat. The guys who did the ct scan were funny people for sure. Made what usually is terrible experience in too something not so bad.
We delivered our son in the hospital. We didn’t have great experience. They are very conservative in their approach and does give you all the options. After birth my wife didn’t get enough colostrum to feed the baby. Our baby started crying as he didnt have enough milk from mom. When we approached nurse we were told that it was common for babies to cry. They didn’t even tell us the option of formula milk. When I asked for it, we received after one hour of my son crying. Two min after having the milk, my son stopped crying and slept.
Two people checked for my wife’s dilation every hour. Supposedly one of the nurses was under training and we were never told that. My wife had to go through more pain than she had to.
We wanted to do circumcision but the way doctor scared us about the procedure we ended up not doing it.
During labor there was possibly a trainee nurse who was given to us, she didn’t have much experience with labor seemed like learning from my wife’s labor. It my wife additional one hour of labor pain.
On the whole very conservative hospital who do not give you all the options and want to do things their way.
Post delivery, we were given a very small room. My wife’s bed was by the bathroom door and she had extremely hard time going to bathroom. The room was so small I hardly had place to sleep. We had very bad experience.
I was kicked out of the hospital for sleeping on a couch on the first floor. I was rudely awaken by a female security guard and made to leave with out an explanation or a chance to explain who I was. My wife had been there several days on the 3rd floor where visiting hours end at 830 so I would sleep down stairs along with other people who were not kicked out. I can no longer be with my wife at riverside as I could be arrested for trespassing
Just read the worst story about your facility. A story that doesn’t seem practical in the United States. I do not care about a “professional opinion” or some statistic. You had two precious lives to save, and instead your facility chose to stand while a mother pled for your help. No amount of condolence with bring that family comfort.
Good Hospitals provide medical care for all patients, especially minor patients when the parents consent to treatment!
Unacceptable, and un- American!
