feedback about Ventura County Medical Center
Saved my husband's life on multiple occasions in 2012.
My husband received amazing and thorough care from all the medical staff at VCMC. We had great care from Dr. Herman, Dr. Simpson, and many others. We loved the residents that we met, too. The hospital has just moved into a newer facility, but even the old one was fine.
Don't let complaints from people who are fussy about parking, paint chipping, and stupid things detract from the thing that matters - the nurses and doctors who are amazing.
My experience with the hospital was great. Never did we get bad attitude from nurses or doctors. My wife gave birth here and we have nothing but great experience and service.
I had a large neck fusion here. The staff nurses, pt, food service, housekeeping, etc were AMAZING! They were prompt, accommodating, caring, and gave me great respect in the operating room, icu and recovery ward. I have had to go back for testing monthly since for two years and they remain some of the friendliest staff I have ever had at a hospital.
ER is lacking, but it is a county ER. They always need resources, but their annexed urgent care is also top notch!
This review is for the maternity and post-partum departments:
From start to finish our visit was fantastic, from the nurses who helped us get settled, to the doctors, to the overnight staff and housekeepers. Our delivery went from routine to scary in a flash, and the entire team was fast and professional and left me feeling that my wife and son were in very capable hands to help guide them through the complications.
Our nurses were all great, they have an obvious passion for what they do and made this whole process a dream. Our nurse on discharge day, Alicia, was particularly friendly and helpful with keeping us informed. No one gets to leave as quickly as they want to, but she helped get us on our way home as swiftly as she could.
A couple tips though, bring your own pillows if you're staying overnight, and arrange for your own food (what they deliver to the rooms is pretty awful, and there are no vending machines that I could find). They let you bring your own food and I recommend you do so. But if they put money towards better care instead of pillows and food, I think they're doing it right.
Worst hospital ever while I was having a pulmonary edema attack witch went into a cardiac arrest with a tube down my throat they put a restraint on my arm when they took it off I had a horrible hole in my arm they were asked if they were going to do anything about it and the nurse said we aren't going to touch that thanks to them I now have a serious skin infection ( cellulitis) the nurses were wonderful as for the er they suck as well as ICU they saved my life yes but gave me an infection that can cause me to lose my arm or kill me. YAY VCMC all sarcasm intended!!
