My 83 year old mother fell while walking in the hall way at St. Elizabeth Hospital. She broke her hip and her life style has change forever. St. Elizabeth showed ni empathy, they did not even check on her. Left he in the hallway on a stretcher in excruciating pain. She has over 100,000.00 in hospital bills and there insurance denied her claim for assistance. She was at the hospital visiting her husband who had an aneurysm in the back of his leg that they fell to detect. We had to request he be transferred to Houston. She had to have emergency surgery and then we asked her to be transported to Houston for a rehab hospital. They said it would be $1000.00. The floor was dirty and I have a video. She fell because someone dropped a granola bar that was all over the floor. They fell to clean it up in time. I wouldn't recommend my dead dog to this hospital.
My daughter went here for severe tooth pain. She could not get to a dentist because they were all flooded out. The first night was ok, they told her go to a dentist, which she couldn't and gave her a mild pain reliever and requested nausea meds. The following night she had a reaction to the pain med of which she had only taken one. When we went back, she was again told to go to the dentist, again still flooded out. Then she was ridiculed and made fun of by the nurses who stood outside her door and complained and made fun of all the other patients, whom were all also in earshot. She was offered serious narcotics which she refused and all the nurse could do was complain about having to go get the meds for nothing. Oh, and after her phenergen injection she was not wiped with an alcohol swab or given a bandaid. Thus she bled all over. Never going back there. Baptist is highly more professional. And nurses,.....if you don't like your job,....then quit.
I spent 26 hrs. in the emergency room because they did not have the staff to open up a room for me. When I left I was still sick and had to go see a private specialist before my problem was found and fixed. But you can be sure that when my final bill is sent to me they will expect me to pay it lickity split!! HARumphhhhhhhhhh!!! What I ask will I be paying for exactly?
This is an Hospital. BS. Hospitals care and help people, they find what is ailing or hurting a person. they help them when they need help even down to feeding and bathing them, NOT this one. they sent my 82 year old mother home and she cant even walk, and they say they cant figure out what is wrong, so send her home. what a world we live in. BAPTIST HOSPITAL HAS YOU PEOPLE BEAT BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS. close your doors, that property would make a beautiful city park to walk our family pets!
Well my father survived multiple injuries and made it through a 2 week ICU stay. As soon as he was transferred to Dubuis-Beaumont for LTAC, they have almost killed him on several occasions due to poor nursing care and poor respiratory care. The nurses literally ignore the calls for help. Resp doesn't respond either. They have poor infection control, walking from room to room spreading MRSA. Almost his entire hall has this infection that is commonly fatal form of pneumonia. They have allowed him to aspirate causing the pneumonia, allowed his o2 sat to drop to 77 for 20 minutes before physical therapy responded and suctioned him. The largest group of incompetent medical workers I have ever witnessed ( my mom and I are both nurses). We now have to stay with him 24 hrs a day to ensure they don't finish him off............Nurses have actually said to us I'm sorry he's not my patient and continue to walk down the hall as he has been choking to death and losing much needed oxygen to his already damaged brain!!!!!!!!!!Please don't place your loved ones here, they are killing their patients! Didn't deserve the one star, but had to give that to place this review!!!
I am extremely disappointed with this hospital. I went to their ER last Wednesday & the staff from their reception area, to the triage nurses to the doctors were extremely uncaring. To see this attitude from health care workers & be treated just as another number was a shock to me. Their mission is to "extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ" & one of their beliefs "Service in a spirit of empathy, love, and concern" was nowhere felt & found. This culture amongst staff is only an extension of their managers. Working in health care is not merely having a job to get a paycheck but in living a purpose of service.
