The only thing this facility has going for it is the latest operating rooms and equipment. Other than that, this is an absolutely terrible hospital. Their infection control in certain places is poor. Many of the technicians are inexperienced. The physicians are not coordinated. The recovery room didn't control my pain and properly tend to me. Resident physicians were not available in the middle of the night. It took 5 1/2 hours to receive prescription medication. There were a few nurses and physicians that were kind and did a good job, but there was such an overabundance of inefficient personnel to make me never want to step foot in the place again. The building is a one off custom made structure that the State of Louisiana will not be able to maintain. In 15 to 20 years, the UMC facility will look like the old Charity Hospital after 60 years. As I was told by a physician friend; "the place is a pig with lipstick". If possible, I highly suggest you avoid the place.
Been to orthopedic on the 4th floor and I've been 4 times. February 7,2019 @ 2pm was the time for appointment I got there at 12:15 and was called to triage 5 minutes later and from there to a room where I waited until 10 minutes till 2pm and at that time I got validated for parking and I left. It's enough that I have driven there from New Iberia, LA., but to wait 2 hours for nothing is unacceptable. Then I've done this 4 times. All anyone can tell me is that I'm here for a follow-up when I need a knee replacement, but nothing is being done. The doctors say do therapy and I do then when i finished therapy I still can't get a knee replacement. I fall numerous times and yet I still can't get a thing done for my knee. I'm just upset at the doctors. I'm tired of the run around that I've been enduring. Some thing needs to be done about the way some of us get the run around especially when traveling from out of town. I can't speak for anyone else, but I guess that one really does have to be half dead for your hospital to do anything. Thanks for wasting my time, ill take my business else where.
Went to ER for very bad ankle/leg break (4 plates and 15 screws). I was put in this little room for 7 hours alone with no call button, room phone, or anything. I finally was able to reach an instrument on the wall and use it to bang on some type of panel to get someone to come into the room. They said ‘don’t do that’ and left me there for 2 more hours (9 hours total) before I got any type of treatment or even medication. Spent a week there, the whole stay was just as bad as the ER visit.
Wonderful hospital! Everyone is kind hearted, patient and caring. Any procedure I need, I schedule it here
I didn't even want to give it one star.i wouldn't even bring my dog to this place...please don't
go there. ..this the worst hospital ever and I lived in three other states... My fiance came in for abcess in gums and they bought a student dentist to work on it and she didn't know what she was doing....she only was in residency for 8 months..don't be fooled by the brand new hospital it was a horrible experience...
