feedback about Sentara Leigh Hospital
Just had my 2nd knee replacement done. The caring team here is amazing. Although, I'm sure, for insurance reasons, I feel you get pushed out way too early. 4 weeks Monday and I'm still in a lot of pain. Thanks to the government, I can't get hardly anything for pain. Currently feeling human for about 2 of the 8 hours between pills.
The nurses are all so amazing and caring. I had one nurse in particular who needs to be mentioned. Her name is Michele and she was exceptionally sweet, funny and caring. When I was really struggling the 1st night after my 1st knee replacement ( the nerve block didn't work), although she couldn't give me anything else for pain, her compassion and caring made me feel better.
All in all, knee replacement sucks, but having a caring person helping you can really make all the difference!
At a routine visit to my Podiatrist, I was advised I had a serious foot infection, requiring immediate admittance to an ER. Though crowded, my wait in the ER waiting area was brief, maybe 30 min, then I was given a bed in the ER hallway, as the rooms were occupied with more seriously ill patients. The hospital was at capacity, so I had to wait about 12 hrs, before a room became available for my extended stay. I'm picky and have high expectations, but to my surprise, every aspect of the care I received and contact with staff went well beyond my expectations. I had surgery the next morning, then spent 5 days in a nice, pleasant, well appointed room, where my every whim and need was attended to with a smile. To my disbelief, even the meals were excellent, and I've had surgery at 2 other area hospitals, but Leigh stands out as the shining Star. My great thanks to the entire staff, especially the nurses and caretakers in 2 East. You can be proud of the care you provided me, as I was treated like family from the time I stepped foot in, until the time I was wheeled out. Thank you.
Didnt get everyone's name, but they all took care of me very well. Thanks for getting done what was needed. Miss y'all. I would've stayed longer, but their facility didnt have the necessary tools to fix my heart.
I am a nursing student that had clinicals there, not every doctor I’ve experienced was nice at other clinical locations but Dr. perez (lady) and the surgeon Scott was AMAZING they taught as they performed a cesarean and they were so welcoming. every staff there was everybit of amazing. I also had my son there 4 years ago and had a great experience! Highly recommended. This was on the labor and delivery floor by the way.
The few days I was there were ok. I was in room 437( EAST TEAM). Most of my nurses and ncp were very thoughtful. I want to thank Delsey, Bonnie, Jasmine, Tasha, Donte, Kathy, and Monique. YOU ALL GET 10STARS! Each of you showed genuine concern for me as a patient. Sometimes you would come in just to say hello. I had a daytime nurse (Brittany), she had a lot of issues. I was able to bathe once and this was with the help of the night time team. During my care A cream was prescribed, to be inserted 2 times daily. She gave me this cream. And then wiped the tube with a paper towel, and put it back in the box. I looked in the box and saw waste on the tube, YES! I did tell her she said oh it's ok. When she left out, I sanitized and washed this tube. She did it again the next day. I told her I would take care of my own creams. She said "ok np" and walked off. I explained this to the night nurse. She could not believe this nurse was so unclean. She ordered a new tube for my care.
I teach my children, at an early age, about body waste, and openings in the body. We can become very sick and or die if we are not clean.
She gave big smiles but was lazy. I had an IV. In my arm. I was given iron to build my blood, and at some point part of the fluid got into my arm. It left a huge painful knot. It was about an hour before she was leaving, and she told me; " you have to keep it in because they may have to give you something else." YES! She left it in and the night team took it out and MOVED IT.....
I hope she will improve her patient care and cleanliness. This can be dangerous for the patient as well as the hospital.
PLEASE PLEASE!!!!! Get rid of those beds. They are HORRIBLE.... I could move around. I did not need a noisy vibrating bed.. I begged to home. I did not SLEEP AT ALL... it was depressing to sleep in those beds.
I am now home sleeping, building energy and feeling better. OH THANK YOU to all of the Doctors who took care of me. You showed great respect for my decisions....
