feedback about Upmc Altoona
My mom has kept UPMC Altoona quite busy as of late. One such visit took place just over two weeks ago. When I entered the ER, I quickly noticed a young child who was experiencing a significant amount of discomfort while in the waiting area. An employee, Loren Bowman, was working his magic with the child. Loren quickly captivated the boy's attention, and, at the same time, shared with the child's dad the steps that would be taken, AND expedited the process with the nurses and ER attendants. The child quickly calmed while Loren continued his balancing act with the father and with Loren's co-workers. Once the child's needs had been addressed and was passed on to a doctor, Loren quickly tackled my mother's case. It was done genuinely and with full attention. It's difficult for me to believe that this is a one-time thing for Loren. He detailed the steps that would be taken to assist my mom. Since I am from out of state and quite unfamiliar with the layout of the hospital, he walked me to the room where my mom would be staying. Along the walk, he greeted the majority, if not all, of the employees by name and checked in with them on items specific to the individual. The same attention that he paid to the little boy was given to my mom and to his co-workers. My hope is that I will not have to pay another visit to this hospital. If I do, I can trust the process that Loren demonstrated.
Well everything is fine well more than fine beside there is A few NURSES that work there that r NOT very good a there job I WAS THERE JUST RECENTLY I CAME HOME WITH MORE AND BIGGER WOUNDS THAN I WENT IN FOR. not saying its every nurse its just that one that did this to me HE knows who he is.
Was admitted last week.. Worst experience ever. Never have I been so insulted and degraded. Charge nurse made fun of my husbands appearance. Questioned my ailgment as if I was telling a story. .talk bad about me to oncoming nurse. Had to use a pair of blue nursing pants to dry off with out the shower list goes on and on. Horrible!!!!!!
UPMC Altoona has always treated us very well. UPMC Altoona was amazing when our son was was delivered there last month. Over the past few years we have had a few trips to the ER and they have always been amazing. UPMC Altoona has helped many of our friends and family members lead healthy lives and recover from injury/illness. UPMC Altoona offers the most advanced and high quality care in the area, and we are lucky to have them!
I hate this place . All I can think about it is that my grandmother had a massive stroke and these people were more eager for us to allow them to pull the plug. Well ya know it’s just easier said than done. They didn’t take care of her hygiene , they just had no bed side manner and spent more time on their damn cell phones. Sometimes Facebook needs to be for just home. She may have been some stranger to the nurses there but her family valued her more than anything. (ICU)😡
