The doctors and nurses here are very unprofessional, they don't communicate with eachother let alone the patients. The nurses can't be bothered to check on patients regularly, nor do they respond to patients emergency call buttons.. they just stand around chatting about their lives, if you don't care about your job please find another that doesn't put people's lives at risk! They also switch medications and doses on patients (without informing them) PEOPLE DIE THIS WAY!
The physical therapist, Brad Lewis, took the time to fully evaluate my abilities before giving exercises. PTs in other facilities gave me exercises too advanced for me. Brad teaches the advantages of specific exercises, and helps me want to do them at home. With RA, I've gone to many PTs since 1997, and he is the BEST.
A family member visited the ER late at night for an orthopedic issue, and I was blown away at how fast, friendly, and excellent the hospital's service and care was. We all agreed it was the fastest ER visit we had ever seen, but the care, attention, and expertise were still all top-notch.
My wife was transferred here for more advanced testing and care a few weeks ago; she stayed a few days. During that time, we found nurses and doctors both willing to listen, answer questions, and work together for her health. I view myself as my wife's protector and advocate, so know that I can be a tad irritating in that regards sometimes. Nevertheless, the staff remained consistently courteous with me (and I did my best as well). Physically, the campus and rooms were clean and orderly. The precautions and cleaning routines certainly appeared up to par for controlling contamination. Parking was free and I never had an issue finding space as I came and went. I ate at the basement cafeteria twice and found the food to be pretty good (I would even go on purpose) and it was reasonably priced. Interestingly, the cafeteria offers some choice in meals for patients, although it is standard patient/hospital quality in that respect. The only down-side regarded my own access to the restroom. My wife's room was on the ICU hall (although she wasn't really ICU). I was instructed not to use the toilet in her room for understandable reasons. However, there were no other restrooms in the hall area that I could use; the closest facility was through the controlled access point in the family waiting room. Anyway, although I am nervous about seeing the bill, it was the right place for her to receive care.
I am very well pleased with all the staff that worked with me tonight. This was my first time at this hospital. Staff was very carin. They gave me a lot of information about my issue. They also answered mine and my husbands questions and have our child a Batman coloring pack. Lindsay, Zack and Dr. Hawkes thank y'all so much!
