"90% of black women are believed less when they complain of pain."
This hospital makes that statement 100% true. A place where black people are treated with less respect and given little to no care. How many black people does this place have to kill before black people realize this hospital is sadly for "whites only"
It's evident in the reviews and news reports. Just 6 years ago they killed a 29 yr old black women because they did not believe her when she told them how much pain she was in. Instead of making sure they didn't miss anything that could save her life they sent her to jail telling police she was looking for drugs. She died an hour later due to blood clots in her lungs. She was too black to be in real pain. She had to be on drugs right??. But she in fact was not on drugs and was dying. If black people realize there power they could shut this place down.
My 18 week pregnant girlfriend went in because she was experiencing 4 min contractions. They had her take a urine test and then didn't come back to hook her up to the machines until her mom had to push the call button. They offered little to no help to her or the other pregnant women in the labor and delivery unit. They have her no real answers for what was wrong or what's going on. Would not suggest going here.
The last 3 times I was seen the staff was pretty unwilling to spend any time evaluating on what i said the actual problems were. They rushed and probably tell everyone the same thing, they were all young and inexperienced. My emergency visit was not terrible and the staff looked over worked at 4am so..I got 2 casts that both made my wrist more uncomfortable during later checkups and no helpful advice that Google can't provide. Trust your own judgement over the doctor's here, but get a x- ray if you can.
Don't go to the ER here. I went in tonight on a workers comp issue. Told them 5 times that I needed a drug test and it was NEVER ORDERED. They put me in a room with a chair and didn't offer to help me prop up my leg they made me do it myself. Nothing ever offered for pain. They didn't even wrap my injuries properly. They put the wraps on top of my clothes instead of under them. The nurse practitioner hardly looked at my injuries cause they had me in a room where no privacy. My one injury was my KNEE. Didn't even look at it to see swelling or anything and you couldn't tell cause I had PANTS on. They didn't even feel my uninjured knee to compare. The brace they gave me for my wrist wasn't put on to fit properly. This place is a joke!!! Ps. I'm white since people say it's a color issue in other post.
As a black woman I would tell any black woman DO NOT HAVE YOUR BABY HERE! I went into labor and I was alone, and I was in terrible pain and the doctor tried to send me home because I was only 3 centimeters. Another doctor came and admitted me at 4, but they did even bother to give me an iv or ask if i wanted an epidural. I WAS NOT MOVED TO A BIRTHING SUITE. They simply threw me in a room with some curtain in it and shot me in the hip with a "pain killer" and there I layed until I could feel the baby coming out so I screamed and started pushing on my own. They moved quickly and moved me to another room more "birth like" but it wasnt a birthing suite it was most like an empty surgery room. I pushed out the baby and was given an iv at that point I guess because I was losing alot of blood. I was moved once again immediately finally to a private room with my baby. If you are alone or Black hopefully my story will help you demand better treatment. Take care everyone and be well
