feedback about White River Medical Center
I am 19 weeks pregnant and had a scheduled ultrasound at the Josephine Raye Rogers Center. I have been anticipating this appointment for a few weeks. Amanda, the ultrasound technician, kept the screen turned so that I could barely see what was going on. Not only that, but she also didn't even take pictures as she went. Maybe I am wrong, but I thought pictures were pretty standard for a scheduled ultrasound. If you are pregnant and have the option to get your ultrasound done elsewhere, I suggest you do that. Pretty much anywhere else.
Under NO circumstance would I recommend this medical facility. My grandmother recently had surgery here and it’s been the worst experience. First off the nurses are impolite, and messy. On multiple occasions used IV bags were left in the sink, unused IV needles scattered amongst the room and trash thrown on the floor instead of trash can. The beds are outdated and broken. The first bed my grandmother received was an old ICU bed that had less than an inch mattress on it and sunk in the middle. After asking for a new one we received a broken bed that my 76 year old grandmother was sat in only for it to fall flat. Luckily she wasn’t injured while the nurses joked “I guess that’s why someone put it in the hallway”. On our first night one nurse forced my grandmother to take an oral pill and swallow water after nearly overdosing her on Phenergan... causing her to aspirate and almost choke to death. Instead of calling for help or attempting to stop the choking this nurse stared in pure terror. The best part. Instead of making sure the pill was out of her mouth (once she started breathing again) the nurse left the room and we later noticed the pill was STILL on her tounge. There is such much more to add but I’ll stop ranting here. I will however reiterate... If you love yourself or your family DO NOT USE THIS HOSPITAL!! I think the other reviews would back me up on this one.
Worst hospital ever. No one is willing to help you could literally walk in the emergency room while bleeding for your life or someone you care about is hurting. Yet you first go past an older lady who can’t hear a word your saying and everyone around who are younger than her. Once your in, it takes 4 people to attend you, because 2 of them don’t know what they’re doing. While one asks you some stupid questions and the other is just there. They never take it seriously.
I guess it is common practice for this hospital not to turn over paper work to a lawyer in the time frame they were given and just hope everyone forgets their negligence. This hospital is great if you want your doctors to ignore life threatening signs and symptoms. Then when someone dies because of what they did they will try to cover it up and simply fail to comply with any family or lawyers.
They were very nice when I brought my baby in. They were very fast and knew what they were doing.
