Wow, a nurse told me 45 minutes ago that she would get me a cup of water. Glad I wasn't holding my breath. Been here almost 2 hrs.and still nothing for pain. My pain level was and is 8 but who's counting. Not the ER. I'm sure they are going to say we are so busy, well take care of who is there also. I could have gotten better care at home by self. I'm going to say a prayer for them.
I just discharged today after a 4 day stay on the 3rd floor step down (from ICU) and so wanted to give shout-outs to all the nursing staff, along with the great Respiratory staff.. They were amazing! If it wasn't for caregivers like this hospital has in place I don't know where I'd be.. Total professionals everyone of them! Thank you Teams for being so good to me! Only was able to get one photo of one of my nurses, Thanks Chase!
It's just going to get worse folks as the merger has left very little if any competition. Ballad has seen to it to remove any competition by shutting down other clinics by telling doctors if they want privileges at a Ballad facility, then get out of the clinics. Case in point, The Renaissance Surgery Center is now closed. I was a patient at BRMC for 9 days and will never allow myself to be an inpatient there again.
Visits to the Hospital are rarely a good thing, but we have always been dealt with courteous service at both the East & West wings. Parking can get to be a challenge, but if you hawk spots long enough, it will come, besides, there is always Gold Cart attendants that fairy visitors who have to park a ways back to the entrance which can be a huge relief when it is pouring rain & snow. I still don't look forward to going to the Hospital, but Bristol Regional does everything they can to minimize the anxiety typically involved.
IIam leaving the bad comments I made afterward to explain why I gave them a 4 instead of a 5. They drained the pocket of infection today and put Don on an IV drip. The ER stinks! I used to think it was a great ER, but it has changed since the merger. I brought my husband here yesterday. They were okay. He was worse today. I called and they told me to bring him back for an iv drip. Now, a rude triage nurse acts like we are lying about calling. As a result, we have to sit and wait because she doesn't think he's sick! We will be charged for 2 ER visits if she decides we can see the Dr. Why couldn't she just ask the Dr. or talk to the nurse I talked to? ADDITIONAL: I complained about the rude triage nurse, and we were taken care of. I wish they had just listened to begin with! THE Dr. We finally saw was great!
