Horrible treatment by the staff...
I had my second baby at Memorial North (my first was at Penrose on Academy). I thought, new hospital, we'll give it a try.
It was a horrible experience. I did have an awesome OB/GYN (Dr. J. Baer) though.
I had a c-section and I while my baby was in my room, I could not get up and change him or pick him up by myself. The nurse would NOT come in to help at all.
They often forgot my pain medication, I waited for two hours crying, I called them and they refused to come in. Once they finally showed up, I got an ""oh, sorry, I forgot.""
It was also extremely noisy. The mother in the next room to me, had relatives over and were partying very loud at 10-11 pm and NO ONE said anything to them. All I wanted to do was sleep, I was exhausted, and when we asked the nurses to speak to them, we were ignored. My husband had to knock on their door to ask them to be quiet.
After my son was born, once I got his birth certificate, I noticed the time of birth was incorrect (he was born in the a.m. the certificate showed p.m.). When I brought this to the hospital's attention I was told that it was my fault, because I did not verify the information they entered into the computer. It was their job to properly fill out the information in the first place.
I will NEVER EVER go back to Memorial. I am closest to Memorial North, but I am willing to drive farther to get to Penrose than deal with Memorial North.
