My mother was transported from this hospital to a nursing home by a private citizen. Mom told me how she hurt from being lifted by non professionals. I couldn't find my mom and the hospital told me her " granddaughter" had picked her up. I am the only living child, the eldest granddaughter lives out of state so you can imagine the emotional distress i suffered until I located mom. My mother's physical health has not been the same sine that day. So sad.
I'm one week post surgery, the hospital and staff were excellent in my opinion. I stayed one night, the nurses were terrific! And when the doctor said I could go home, I was in the car in 15 minutes! Also the doctor, Dr. Autry did an awesome job. I haven't needed one pain pill. She's a very nice, concerned doctor who ALWAYS sits down and listens to patient concerns. I recommend her and the hospital 100 percent! Darlene S.
Worst hospital I've ever been to my girlfriend and I were treated like drug seekers and the officer that was there that night put hands on me when I told the staff I was going to call a lawyer.the nurse hurt my girlfriend because she fell asleep and said this is a hospital not a place for you to rest. I'll drive to Birmingham from now on at least you get treated like a person and not a drug addict.
The E.R. docs literally killed me. I was brought in unresponsive....They immediately treated me as a drug addict and gave me Narcon (or however you spell it. Never asked my family if took ANY medication(which I do and have a doctor). When the Narcon failed to work, I was rushed to Brookwood was put on a ventilator for 3 days. HAD MILD HEART ATTACK BECAUSE OF THE NARCON....WALKER CAUSED ME TO HAVE A MILD HEART ATTACK BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY DID TO ME AND FAILED TO DO. WHAT CAUSED ME TO GO IN UNRESPONSIVE YOU ASK??...ENDED UP BEING DOUBLE PNEUMONIA. WALKER BAPTIST NEARLY KILLED ME BECAUSE THEY AUTOMATICALLY THINK PEOPLE HAVE OVERDOSED (I KNOW MANY ARE TREATED FOR THAT THERE WITH GOOD CAUSE). BUT, NOT ALL OF US THAT LIVE HERE ARE DRUGGIES OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT! I HAD BEEN HAVING TROUBLE BREATHING THE WHOLE DAY....THANK GOD MY HUSBAND WOKE UP AND CHECKED ON ME. BUT, SHAME ON WALKER BAPTIST EMERGENCY ROOM!!
Gave my wife morphine while in labor & almost killed my baby & she came into this world needing narcan for 3 days! They almost killed my baby,& charged an outrageous amount to counteract what they did. We only go to children’s in Birmingham now.
