Staff have a keener interest in ticking boxes on surveys than in assessing and conveying patients' acute needs. But perhaps their staff may be excused in the face of the inadequacy of that exercise.
To begin with, when conducting initial assessments, it is both ethical and compassionate to confer in a private office out of sight and earshot of uninvolved staff and public, and admission likewise ought to be offered privately and upon advice and consent, not implied coercion.
Fast forwarding; The ineptitude or indifference of the (ir)responsible parties whose neglect caused not only a major inconvenience but probably cost me the promised therapy this author might've benefited from are inexcusable. In the aftermath of that fiasco, perhaps my rude behavior ought to have been excused, considering the purpose of your facility is focused on treating pathologically impaired behavior. What else does "BCU" stand for?
None of these appear on your little checklists, but professional duty ought not be confined within the four corners of a survey or standard study.
Combined with the other administrative and therapeutic shortcomings I observed and encountered from entrance to exit, I strongly disrecommend your facility to anyone considering the behavioral unit for whatever reason, as staff or client.
This was my first time having surgery but the whole process went perfectly across the board. Everyone was friendly, well spoken and knowledgeable. That's everyone, from the admissions check in, to the gentlemen who wheeled me out, after I finished surgery. I work in the medical field myself and you can tell that the whole surgery center is top notch. I would highly recommend St. Vincent's medical center to anyone going in for surgery.
I had been there in February as my daughter had high fevers in February and her pediatrician recommended us to go in so all the adequate blood work would be done which the pediatrician could not Order. My daughter was on anti-biotics as the pediatrician was treating her for Pneumonia although the chest X-Ray came out clear because of her cough. We were stuck with an extremely rude nurse who made me pick my daughter up with the IV in her hand from one end to the next end of the ER where the restrooms were. They did not order appropriate blood work and wasted 5 hours and let us go home at the end. I took my daughter to Yale Medical Center in Trumbull, CT after a couple of days as her fever did not go down. The Doctor at Yale ordered certain virus tests for blood and sure enough, she had RSV and then Flu B later based on her results. A Royal waste of $800, which was only my Co-pay. I brought this to their Patient relations and hoped they would reduce the bill at least and they denied that in a letter. All in all, Absolute Waste of Time and Money!!!
PLEASE DON"T GO HERE !!!
Horrible experience. If I could give negative stars I would. Do not go to their ER if you have an actual emergency! They’re understaffed, nonchalant, and unclean. I was waiting for over 4 hours with chest pain before I was brought to a dirty room which had a random vial filled with someone’s blood on the table, a tourniquet strap on the dirty floor, and used linens on the bed. Absolutely disgusting and horrendous experience. Do better St. Vincent’s, do better.
Response to owner: I know which medical center I visited (2800 Main Street, Bridgeport) and I left the appropriate review for the correct St. Vincent's. My review still stands. I will never go here again.
Extremely BIZZARE Hospital!!!!! I came in thinking i was having a heart attack. They took a CAT scan which showed blood clots in my lungs due to a recent surgery. The doctors are thorough here, at least. The rooms are private and very clean. I had a lovely nurse today, Ashauna. She is very kind. However, it appears to be part prison. I had my cigarettes and lighter confisgated once a nurse saw them in my purse. Last i heard cigarettes were legal. They were taken and locked up. There are bolted windows in your room. They do not open, even a crack. You are not allowed to leave your floor, under any circumstances. If u do you must put in a request to have a hospital security guard escort you and follow you around (maybe they have a high theft rate or something?). You are not allowed to leave the building. You must beg for a tylenol if you are in pain. They act like this is some kind of controlled substance clinic, as if giving you a tylenol is a life threatening event. I asked at 7am when i would be discharged. They said "soon". 4 hours later i asked if i could go to the gift shop and they informed me since i was going to be discharged i would not be allowed to go to the gift shop. I would like to point out that i was simply a walk in. I was not here for anything drug or alcohol related. I have no criminal record of any kind, aside from motor vehicle violations mostly consisting of unpaid tickets. They have no fans and since there are no windows that open, it is gross, thin, stagnant air always. Unless you like being a prisoner and a patient, i would suggest a place with less of a criminal, claustrophobic, paranoid, unhealthy feeling.
