feedback about Viera Hospital
Not sure why this hospital couldn't have built a maternity section. We moved out here for the hospital. To find out we still would have to drive to Holmes. Also not the friendliest staff/nurses. Lots of confusion on the weekend. We also had to pay my husband bill while in the hospital before seeing a doctor. Before that, they have always just billed. It was outrageously high!
Ridiculously expensive. I left without understanding what was wrong while still experiencing symptoms. I was completely unaware I was even diagnosed with anything or that I had a prescription. I was told everything came back fine. I didn’t find out any of this information until I was home combing through discharge papers. I went to get my prescription and it was never called in.
Have visited Viera Hospital several times, fortunately just for tests, Staff has always been very professional and friendly. The building could use a little more heat so they wouldn't have to pass out so many blankets. It is a shame that the world has come to a point where security is necessary. The metal detector at entrance is way too sensitive and especially today was stopping almost everyone. This required a hand scan that usually turned up nothing. Either the metal detector was broken or the hand scanner wasn't working. The fact that only one person was working at the entrance created a long,slow line.
The doctor that "cared" for me both times here was extremely unprofessional towards me and negligent in her practice. The first time the problem wasnt solved, so i had to come back again. Firstly, the entire time from start to finish i was being heavily scolded and aggressively interrogated by the Dr. and the nurse about how i was going to pay for my medial bills for their services because i didnt have insurance. Then the Dr. made angry remarks about me coming back a second time and told me that i didnt need the procedure. While doing the procedure she was very rough with me, which made my pain level way worse than it had to be. After the procedure, she realized how serious my condition really was, and admitted to me that it was good that i came back in and that i did indeed need the procedure. Different than her original scolding and nasty behavior telling me that it was unnecessary. After that she rediagnosed me. One of the worst parts was when the procedure was done, i asked for some bandaids to hold my gauze in place over my open wound, and the nurse said that i could just hold the gauze with my hand until i made it to a pharmacy to buy my own! I tried to ask again for a bandage and she said it isnt the hospital's responsibility to provide me one, and refused me! She also made a remark about the "cost of such things"! The entire time they were both horrible to me, and i gave no reason to warrant that behavior from them. Today i went to a Different Hospital because unfortunately the same problem has arrised and i had to receive the same procedure again. This time around, everything was different. The PA was gentle with the procedure which caused way less pain. Also, after going through this same procedure again but in a different hospital, i realized that the Dr at Viera skipped a very important step. Just to find out how negligently she did my procedure at Viera after realizing how it should of went at a different hospital disgusts me! At the hospital i went to today, when my procedure was done, the nurse patched me up and provided me with the bandages needed without me even having to ask. I didnt have to "hold it up with my hand" I was treated like a human there! I will be speeking to someone about what happened to me here. They should be ashamed of themselves.
Very clean. People are nice and polite. Not too busy and quiet.
