feedback about Upmc Altoona
My mom had to stay overnight at UPMC Altoona. The staff was great. They made it so we could worry less about my mom. The nurses were great on taking care of her and made her feel welcome, even though she didn't want to be there. House keeping was even more awesome not only to keep the hospital clean and sanitized but to make sure the patient and visitors needed anything or wanted anything. The doctors that did her surgery kept us well informed from checking her in to checking her out. Thank you so much for taking care of her.
Unless you are dying, don't bother coming here. You can wait longer than 4 hours for a room. Even going through the ER took forever.
They incorrectly reduced my fractured wrist and failed to provide a competent surgeon or transfer me to a hospital that had one. A shoulder surgeon with no experience told me he "thinks he can do the surgery." Not very promising, right? So I asked to be transferred and they refused and held me in their "care" for several days, allowing my condition to worsen, rather than providing any kind of treatment. The hospital should not be allowed to stay open, and there orthopedic staff is amateur at best. Never admit yourself or a loved one here unless you want to be deformed for life. The surgeon in question, a man who SHOULD NOT be allowed to practice medicine.
U dont even want my opinion of this place.. it isnt a very good one! They need to learn how to pay attention to patients charts before giving meds! Not pleased at all with the staff at this hospital! I will be contacting the hospital for some answers to what they did to my mother!
My wife spent 5 days in the hospital. The staff, nurses and doctors, were uniformly helpful and compassionate.
