Such a terrible experience
Such a terrible experience!!!
I am a physician and its deplorable that this hospital is running this way. There are few doctors here, run by nurses with very little overall experience. I was with my mother most of the times and the staff found my presence annoying!
Seems like it's much easier to completely neglect a patient when they do not have an able bodies individual by their side. So specially people who do not have the privilege of that, they should avoid this hospital altogether. Here the orthopedic floor is run by few two extremely disrespectful physician assistants. They show very little caring for the patients and must times are just standing around the desk having personal conversations with nurses.
I noticed one of the physical therapist giving foot massage to one of the doctors on the floor in a widely visible area. Pain meds ate never delivered to the patient on time before therapy, pain control is not individualized and the only goal seems to be to get patients out soon, so the overall goal of quick discharge after joint replacement is met.
I was advised by other hospital staff who had very poor experience here with their family members to choose st. Joes and I apologized to my mother that I went against their advise to come to the Providence Park hospital. I made a very bad mistake and please find a good Ortho or any other speciality you need who goes to st. Joe's or university of Michigan or Henry ford/ Beaumont hospital or any other hospital for that matter but do not come to providence park hospital.
As a physician, I am ashamed to say that a hospital can deliver such poor care in the floors in this day and age.
