Was in for spine surgery November 2017. Had surgical complications which, I firmly believe, were no fault of the surgeon. Woke in recovery with a BIPAP mask on my face, which freaked me out as I am severely claustrophobic, and suddenly there were people holding me down, grabbing my hands and screaming at me! Once they told me that I had to be still & why, I was easily compliant and the physical restraint stopped. I went to the floor a bit later & was told not to move at all for up to 2 days. There were no provisions made for elimination needs, etc.,and when I asked the nurse questions, I was snapped at. Once the order was obtained for a catheter, it was put in as though it was punishment for disturbing the charge nurse! I will say the overnight nurses for the first 4 or 5 nights were excellent. They were extremely attentive, were concerned for my needs, my pain and for my emotional needs due to the horrible nursing care I was dealing with on the day shifts. The travel nurse I got stuck with was new to the facility, and she was more than awful, she was cruel and rude and beyond out of line. Having been a RN myself for 15 years, I know what minimal patient care at least should be...she could not even muster that. I was not washed, nor medicated for pain appropriately at all. Even on day of discharge, she neglected to perform necessary tasks in a timely fashion - like removing the catheter until it was actually time for me to leave! My surgeon was apologetic for the complications which were known about at the time of the surgery, but there were complications found later also that were possibly attributed to being improperly rolled from the special table/frame in the operating room. I had nerve damage in one hip which made walking impossible. What should have been a one-night hospital stay turned into an 8-night stay at St Mary's, then another 8 days in rehab. Also, to mention, the food during my stay was absolutely AWFUL. I barely ate anything, leaving me feeling weaker and worse then necessary. I will never schedule an elective procedure here again, and will avoid being admitted here ever again as much as humanly possible. I had a similar procedure here 3 years prior, and it was a completely different experience. Too bad the nursing care has gone so far downhill. It is the nurses that make the hospital and the care of patients what it is.
