feedback about Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla
I was there for 5 days in November with great care, the morning of my release the level of care was so poor that I had to receive more treatment from the Emergency Room twice!
My nurse Natasha tried to give me the wrong medicine.
Natasha then gave me a shot and I immediately got very ill.
The next day I called my Doctor from home and he didn't know anything about it.
So the facts are:
Natasha tried to give me incorrect medication.
Natasha improperly gave another medication.
Natasha didn't report the incident which is Hospital Policy.
The Hospital reply was we had a talk with her about how to inject medication.
I still have medical issues months later.
For such a modern state of the art facility,I was very surprised to have an experience where I got disconnected 3 times and never got a nurse in the ICU ,3 other times after there shift changes trying to get information regarding my sister on Life support.All I got was a recording that said they were busy and a system that didn't offer an opportunity to leave a message in order to check on My loved one. that sucks!!!
Be careful when using their ER. They contract doctors out of network for their ER and you will be billed from the hospital as well as the contracted doctor. It seems crazy that a hospital would use out of network physicians but is seems to be more and more prevalent in the medical care industry. Unfortunately the industry knows it has all the leverage as you do not get to select the doctor you see when visiting the ER.
Emergency Room. Medically they are good. Billing wise they are not. They use contracted doctors from La Jolla Emergency Specialists who are out-of-network and not contracted with your insurance. You will get a surprise bill for the balance. How do you request an in-network doctor during an emergency?
I cant say enough positive things about this hospital. Staff is very friendly and skilled.
Arvin in the nuclear department conducted some tests which took a lot of time. He stood out as among the top in terms of care, skill, and making me feel comfortable. He honestly made my time the best it could possibly be. He is the BEST and i will alway remember my experience with him!
