feedback about Sioux Falls Va Medical Center
I have not been happy since my records were transferred to South Dakota even though I am from Illinois have never been able to transfer them back. Was told maybe some missing federal medical records after transferred here by a DAV rep. I always find errors on some of my medical records at this VA facility. What I actually say or focus on is different or twisted sometimes from what is written into my medical record. Its advantageous to who (not me) when I am always alone no family to take with me as a witness to these visits like other patients sometimes have. Seems like I have more errors now than I did in the past when my exhusband came with me. Additionally I feel sometimes more disrespected by female healthcare providers in Sioux Falls area ironically enough but maybe I just sometimes cross paths with the wrong people. It seems like people should writedown more helpful factually based things down on medical records than sometimes rude opinionated erred comments to keep a veteran battling with unemployment and unmarried from publicized medical records. Helpful things would be nicer than just comments to cover medical provider shortcomings. Never in the past in Sioux Falls VA have my complaints about what is written on a medical record been corrected. I requested 3 lab tests from a doctors order last time (order was from outside of the VA in another state) was the only reason I came here to VA. However, I was asked all these other questions in order to get 3 lab tests done. I thought I was sent to the other facility emergency room for the 3 lab tests only. Things other than lab test requests were written into VA medical record (Some things written on VA record were not completely accurate) where I was sent to emergency room at another hospital by the end of the day for different reasons than the 3 lab tests which was the only reason I came to VA last time. I appreciate the effort to get tests done by sending me to another hospital but were they helpful or backfired and didn’t get the help I requested in the end where Sanford was trying to treat me for things other than the requested labs? I ended up more sick with headache and in more pain by the end of the entire day asking for 3 tests to be done from doctor’s order when I was sent outside the VA to emergency room at another hospital. Maybe did not go entirely too well. Disappointed. I appreciate the effort but did not go well at the VA or the other hospital emergency room.
I brought a very sick veteran from our SNF to the ER yesterday. Went in to get a wheelchair and came out to find a guy and a gal asking me questions at the same time about help. I told them 'only if you are qualified', I didn't know who they were. The gal rolled her eyes at me and tugged at her pants, I guess that meant she was a nurse... very rude. Her supervisor needs to get her trained on customer service and then some.
Always a great place to visit with timely appointments. The staff is great and have always taken care of my needs. We are very lucky to have the caring staff that we do at the Veterans Affairs Hospital. I would give them more than 5 stars of I could.
Doctor turnover is about 1 per year in primary care. Nurses and staff are always helpful and nice.
I am not a patient but they are taking very good care of my loved one
