I wish I could give 0 stars, honestly. The issues I have had with this hospital are far too many (and too personal) to type out all in one review, but I’ll try to explain a little.
I had an appendectomy here that my body reacted awfully too. When I went back to the hospital to get my surgeon’s name and some info in hopes of figuring out my complications, the staff got extremely defensive as if I was accusing them of messing up my surgery instead of just looking for some help to understand why my body was reacting the way it has been. I have never in my life been treated so poorly by medical professionals and I will never step foot in this hospital again. They refused to give me my own lab work (the 4 staff members I asked about it all avoided the question and acted very sketchy about it), a nurse brought me medication that I am severely allergic too (that info was in my charts) and was mad at me when I told him I wouldn’t be able to take it, and I had a triage nurse laugh at me and then tell me I shouldn’t be in the ER (um, where else do I go for appendicitis). When I was in my ER room, another nurse told my boyfriend to hit some buttons for her on one of the machines hooked up to me, which we both thought was so unprofessional.
By the way, the complications after my surgery that they couldn’t figure out over a span of 3 months, Virginia Mason helped me with in a matter of a couple hours. There, I was given kind treatment from the staff, the correct medication, and the referral I needed to continue gaining my health back. So if you’re in the area and need to go to a hospital, I would say to stay clear of Edmonds Swedish and head down to VM if possible.
