feedback about Vista Medical Center East
I had my first baby here. I was induced and having contractions that were 2 minutes apart much sooner than they thought and no one checked my cervix. I then got an epidural. About 2 or 3 hours later I threw up and kept telling the nurse something was wrong, but no one checked my cervix. A little while later, the nurse finally got the doctor and checked my cervix. The head of my baby was already half out!!!!
Then I asked about breastfeeding. They got a lactation consultant, who is certified based on experience and not education. She couldn't get my baby to latch. He bit me. I got moved to another room, and they checked his mouth and all they said was that his jaw was tight. I kept trying to breastfeed him; every nurse had a different tip. I rarely saw a lactation consultant and when I did, they were in the room for less than 10 minutes. My breasts we're bloody and bruised. I couldn't feed my baby. They told me to pump and I tried, but my supply was decreasing because of the lack of feeding. The lactation consultant fed my baby formula. I was devistated. The last day his mouth was evaluated again and more time was spent with me. I left with tools to encourage him to latch and I thought I was ok. Nothing improved. At 2.5 momthm, I paid an independent lactation consultant to look at him after asking about tongue tie to 2 different pediatricians, and discovered that my little one has tongue tie. The hospital should have evaluated this and fixed it when I was there. I was naive. The new family center is terrible, over worked, and uneducated. My breastfeeding experience was ruined because of them.
Your staff are rude as they can be!
One person only was polite and considerate of my pain the doctor that fist saw me on the 14th at 5 pm he order blood work and an ultrasound. But lastly another doctor told me there was no heartbeat of my baby. That’s it?!
I came back today monday to ask if any medication is available for my bleeding and the woman inthe ER at 6 pm took my blood pressure hurting my arm, on top of being rude again i am walking out now upset!
I was a patient at Visita East during the time of November 8th through the 14th and I had the best care from the floor five West and would recommend anyone to go there. Their staff is very professional, very empathy, was readily available and my room was very clean. I know I had the best care and would recommend anyone to visit.
I come in from the emergency care in lindenhurst without any problems. They move me to vista east and this clown PA is just being the rudest person I ever come across. Now the last thing I need after a minor stroke is this. No food? The bed cant be shut off all I want is sleep at this point. The part I did understand is they would not let me go have a cigarette. But if you won't feed me or shut my bed off from the horrible vibration. Look away for 10 minutes so I can have a smoke.
If you don't have anywhere else to go, or you need emergency care, then this is the place for you. If you can get to another hospital, i e lake Forest, or condell, you would do yourself a favor, trust me. My father-in-law went there for severe head pain, the doctor wanted to operate on his brain! The doctor said he saw a tumor, my wife ended up getting him to another hospital, they found out that he had a stroke, a brain bleed, not a tumor on his brain. Make no mistake, this hospital has saved lives, and they have some very good physicians that work out of this hospital. Dr. Jonathan Citow ✔️is one of them. They are woefully understaffed, even in intensive care. 🤔The employees will tell you that themselves.the bar is set pretty low concerning employment at this hospital. You can tell the difference in the level of interaction with the patients in this hospital.🤕🤧😷
