feedback about Union Hospital
I had a very good doctor (aside from his negligent nurse) who had been affiliated with Union Hospital. When Cleveland clinic took over he has now become uncaring and unhelpful. Leaving me without my meds. I've called and called and called again to no avail.
I wrote a review of Union Hospital a few years ago that they have since removed. I'm reposting because I want people to know what they're getting into when they go to Union. My father had become ill a few years ago and had went to Union complaining of pain in his lower back. Several times they dismissed his concerns and sent him home. He was delirious, talking gibberish and not making any sense . The third time he went to the ER they decided to cut his appendix out even though he was completely incoherent. They didn't run any tests or contact a next of kin. They dismissed him after and he laid in bed for two weeks in dire pain. After his experiences here we went to Aultman to try to find out what was going on. Yet again we were ignored and not listened to. The ER doctor dismissed us even though my father was complaining of chest pains. I took the doctor aside and with tears in my eyes told her something was not right with my father, we were dismissed. After returning again with the same complaint they finally ran some tests and discovered he had abscesses on his spine. We were told his appendix surgery could have easily killed him if it has burst his abscess while they were flopping him around. I am not posting this to advocate for Aultman Hospital. I simply think it is horribly sad the way our country treats people that are sick and in need. Our medical system has become a joke and the people that suffer are the ones that need it most.
This place don’t go to it. I am only giving it a star because I want to tell u my story:
I went to union due to pregnancy issues and I was told I was then not around 10 times. Still not giving me a solid answer. Went to my obgyn and he told me I was but was having a miscarriage. Had a dui.and had another blood test still pregnant but had a tubal. I was 4 months pregnant and union took ultrasound to my uterus but that was it. I told them something was wrong but they never wanted to listen to me. I about lost my life due to them and not doing an ultrasound on my tubes. They also laughed at me when I told them how many miscarriages I have had, it’s not right to laugh at someone who has been going through 2 miscarriages in 1 month due to I had been carrying twins. Very very upset with this place. It’s a JOKE please travel a little bit more to mercy or adult man in canton they treat you a lot better and the dr.s are very sympathetic to you. UNION HOSPITAL SHOULD BE VERY ASHAMED TO LAUGH AT PEOPLE THAT HAS HAD SO MANY MISCARRIAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am still struggling to live day by day and then they do that. It brings people(me) down. But anyways they about killed me because they didn’t want to do to much. I am alive because of my obgyn NOT because of union.
The emergency department is a joke! I have had the worst experience going here multiple times for different reasons. I chose to continue to go there after horrible experiences due to the fact of me or my family going was a emergency. However the last time was the last time as I am pregnant and was bleeding instead of getting a nurse from the labor or delivery area I was checked by a doctor in the emergency department that just confirmed I was bleeding! I was there for hours and the only comforting thing during this whole experience was the ultrasound tech that told me the babys heart beat was fine after the ER doctor told me I was having a miscarriage. They sent me home. I was hemorrhaging and was stopped and confirmed by my OBGYN the next day in Massillon.
Staff was nice and helpful but it's obvious this Hospital is way under staffed with not enough Doctors. I sat in the emergency room for over three hours and never got in to see a Doctor...very sad. It's no wonder this hospital is being sold to the Cleveland Clinic..maybe then you will experience a hospital emergency room that will be staffed with enough Doctors to treat people when they come in and need medical attention. Well off to a Urgent care to help me with what may be a infected spider bite that looks very similar to a Brown Recluse bite. Wish me luck because Union Hospital sure didn't give me any.
