Thought it was the best place to carry my wife who had lymphoma. Everything started out great. After chemo they done a bone marrow on her when we thought she was to weak too. She got where all they could do was give her fluids. We decided to go home and come back every few days. We did this for several months and she seemed better. But her stomach had to be drained every 2 1/2 weeks. She got weak one day and fell so I rushed her to the emergency room at the hospital. The next night her sister come to visit her and we were all happy that she felt good. She was in ICU the next day and they said she was going to a room as soon as they had one available. We left and at 3 in the morning we got a call saying I needed to hurry back up there. When I got there they said in the ICU unit that she had threw up in her respirator and it had gone down in her lungs. They had tied her hands up where she couldn’t get it off. Why they did that they we weren’t told. We could see that she had been with out oxygen and had brain damage. She could no longer talk or respond to us. They had the nerve then to say that she was going to die anyway. After I got through telling them what I thought they got in a huddle and started talking about us. Here we were by her bed side and people started walking back looking at us. I said something to the young doctor about it and he said , well we talk about everybody. Told him to get his ass up and leave. I knew then that she was going to die for no reason. They acted like they needed her out of that room. Had some girl there we called the lady of death. Kept coming in the room saying that she was going to die anyway. We left before I was hauled off to jail. Never in my life had I seen anything like it. She died about 3 that morning before I could get to her. Just 4 days earlier she was ok. I give it 2 stars because everyone else in the hospital had done a great job and was nice as could be. What ever you or anybody else does I beg you please if you’re loved one has to go to the ICU unit get them out of there as fast as you can. Heard they were in bad financial trouble and wondered if they just wanted the bed space. You need more info please text me. I was there for over a year.
UAMS is wonderful. I have had my share of admissions along with many other family members. UAMS is a great hospital and has served my entire family very well. This is from PCP, ER, Cancer Institute, outpatient, Inpatient, ICU and many other areas. I appreciate UAMS and it dedication of staff and physicians for all my family's care. I could not imagine going to any other hospital for my care. Thank you UAMS
My 20 years old son had 2 major surgeries with Dr. Suen .. my son is doing very good now.. he is to do another one in a couple of weeks with same doctor..
I don't know about others they maybe right... but i had a great experience in this hospital as they have saved my son life..
They can improve on the nursing side...yet they get easy 5 stars from my side
I would not take my dying dog to this place...they nearly killed my daughter by giving her an infection and they mistreated my sister-in-law as well as diagnosed her wrong. She died yesterday. How can they say the cancer us gone and a month later say there is no hope. The sorry @$$ nurses rushing my brother-in-law so they could use the room. I prayed he would have an autopsy done with a place not funded by this sorry state called Arkansas.
My mother was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in early October. They have been on the ball the whole time. Been nice, respectful, helpful, and have just gone above and beyond to get her taken care of. If you are able to come her, do it. It's worth it! We drive from Searcy, Arkansas and I will never take her to white county again.
