I don't even know where to begin with this hospital. All of my family lives in this area and we have unfortunately had many, many experiences with this place. The dreary rooms are the least of their problems and could be overlooked if the medical staff didn't match the decor. It has gotten to the point that many of my family INSIST that they never be forced to go there. We've even had doctors and NP's refuse to re-run tests when asked, "forget" to put medication orders in or log them in to a family member's file (not helpful when other doctors on the next shift are looking at it, unless you are trying to kill someone) and make assumptions about a family member's level of dementia, later admitting that they never bothered to check the bloodwork or CT scan before they called social services to try and put them in a home. Come on people.... please, actually do your job. There is no room for ego in this profession, and just because you believe you are right, doesn't exclude the possibility that a test was performed wrong, or that someone else erred somewhere along the line. These are people's lives you are dealing with here... family...friends. Why not at least try and make a little effort to take the extra step and be sure that things are correct? On top of that, I don't know if any of you know what Magnet status is, but it is given to facilities/hospitals dedicated to nursing excellence, where they make every effort to make sure you receive the very best in nursing care. This place doesn't have it. Enough said. Please, if you value yourself or anyone else, do NOT go to this hospital. If you need to due to budgetary or insurance concerns then please please please keep yourself informed on everything that is being done. Don't slack and think that they have everything taken care of because most likely they do not. You would be doing yourself, or anyone else, that is in the hands of these people a disservice. Ask questions, make sure they have performed tests, gotten results back and reviewed them. Ask for re-tests, second opinions. Keep track of medication yourself to double check. Speak up for a family member to make sure they have an extra blanket etc. If they have a depleted immune system make sure that they aren't placed in a room with someone who sounds like they have the damn whooping cough. This is a facility where you need to keep yourself informed every step of the way to make sure that you are aware of what is happening, can ask questions, and catch any possible issues before it is too late.
