It's sad how things have changed over the years. I don't have the answers but you think that the health care professionals would. I have had multiple surgeries and many admissions into hospitals from this. Doctor's would see you twice a day, morning and late afternoon. They would discuss your recovery and plan with a professional bedside manner. Nurses were truly wonderful and caring. This is what I see now, the people on the medical profession are so busy because of not enough staff. There is one nurse for 6 patients. Doctor's seem fed up with all of changes and new regulations which I can't blame them. No pain medication because of the drug addicts that waste time and energy from those that need it. It's like a dog chasing it's tail, or even a domino effect. There's not one cause there are many. In my opinion it's society that has done this and it's only getting worse. For those that truly need medical attention and treatment, they are the ones that truly suffer the consequences.
We had a very good experience at this hospital. Our father got critically ill during vacation. He was brought here and received excellent care while here. The nurses, CNAs, doctors and all staff including housekeeping and dietary were caring and took excellent care of our father so we could get him to rehab and then back home to Alabama.
The team my mom had in out patient surgery were absolutely amazing!!! Nurse Rhonda and Nurse Fran incredible individuals who not only did their jobs super well and efficient but cared about my mom. Dr Kennedy was fantastic as well, not only did he come and check on my mom to make sure she was comfortable before she were discharged, but he also came out to the waiting room to assure me that the procedures went well and my mom was doing ok, and to know if I had any questions. I was very impressed thank you for being our shining stars during this difficult time. YOU GUYS ROCK XOXOXOXOXO
By far the WORST hospital EVER. My mom went in for a simple ankle procedure, she came out of surgery and they kept her overnight for observation. My grandmother was in the room with my mom, but did not know that she had stopped breathing. My grandmother heard a beeping noise, which turned out the be the oxygen sensor on her finger. Still unbeknownst to my grandmother she alerted the front desk of the beeping noise (it had been about 10-15 mins by this time that the machine was going off). It was another 15 mins before nurses came to check on the machine, and to their surprise she was not breathing (she had coded). They were able to resuscitate her, but she suffered significant brain damage, damn near brain death by the time they had regained a pulse. She spent 2 months on life support before succumbing to her injuries. To ALL, be very cautious about this hospitals procedures and practices... it could literally be the difference between LIFE and DEATH!!!
I've been in both the Melbourne hospital and the Rockledge hospital. My advice is don't go there, to either. Google doesn't give me a space big enough to write about them although I did post one incident on the Rockledge branch of this hospital. Just look at the reviews here, the majority are super bad. If you have insurance be prepared for them to rack up the charges, especially through the ER. Your choice.
