feedback about Tampa General Hospital
A year ago I wrote a review about the terrible service. Had to have surgery today and I have to say what an amazing turn around! It was really great service! Everyone took great care of me and communication was awesome!
I was there with my son two days in a row in August 2018. My son was so, so very ill. He was running fevers of 106, vomiting and by the second time I took him back he was vomiting coffee ground type blood. I know the second day they did nothing beyond looking at him and taking a quick listen. I honestly can't remember if they did anything the first day beyond Motrin and Tylenol for the exceptionally high fever (maybe a urine culture too?)The first day I took him his eyes actually rolled back in his head and he went completely limp. Granted this was from the fever, it still was alarming to me and they treated it like no big deal. The doctor's that saw him both days made me feel like I was a crazy mom and wasting their time and resources. My son was only 21 months old and had never had any real illnesses other than a small child to this point. I took my son to the pediatrician the next day and they were alarmed at the "care" we received and sent us directly to St. Joe's upon seeing and evaluating him, even cautioning me about the potential need to call an ambulance for him. My son ended up having pneumonia which could have been caught two days earlier had they just done a simple chest x-ray and believing me that something was really wrong with my son. I will never, ever trust TGH with the care of either of my children ever again. It doesn't seem like they care for their patients at this facility any longer, which is horrifying as a parent. Not sure what changed.
II had to take my ittle girl to the hospital because of a high fever. The attention and the care that they gave her was incredible. I am so thankful for their attentiveness to her and to me. Both of the nurses that attended us, Jamie and Ruth, were very caring and very patient with my little girl.
It's a good hospital when you arw admitted but when it comes to the ER not so much. This is the second bad experience we had coming to the ER.The triage nurse didn't ask much and told us to wait in the waiting room for someone to put an IV. I have been sitting in the waiting room for an hour for someone just to put an IV in my mother who is in pain. If i would had known it was going to be like this i would have taken her to SJ north.
I've had my three kids here an would suggest this hospital to anyone without a doubt or second thought. Never had any problems with the birth of my children or The staff. They are incredibly understanding of whatever issue or what your going through. They actually care about the people in there unlike some other hospitals. If I could give a 6-start rating, I definitely do so.
