I had surgery at Mt. Hood Hospital and a simple procedure with low risk became my worst nightmare.\r
Not only was the inital surgery unsucessful but due to the unsanitary actions of the physican and cleanliness of the facility I am infected with hospital acquired MRSA which I will have for the rest of my life. \r
They have neglected to give me proper meds and deny any responsibility and I feel an obligation to inform/warn others that may need medical assistance to go elsewhere for their safety. My ER visit has left me unable to work, finacially and mentally drained, and infected with a lifelong antibiotic resistant infectious disease, not to mention the physical scaring and damage from the 30+ incisions all over my body from the chronic/re-occuring abcesses. Before my visit at their hospital I had a promising future, a good job and a term away from a college degree, basically a great little family with my 2 young children that I raise alone as a single mother. But due to laziness and lack of proper hygene and improper techniques, I lost alot of the things I struggled and worked hard to achieve and I am forced to be on financial assistance and unable sometimes to even touch or hug my kids for fear I'd infect them too. When Im sick I'm HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS. I'm appalled at the things they continue to say & do that put others seen after me at risk & in danger. Starting w/the Triage nurse, I inform upfront I'm contagious & have MRSA, ask them to put gloves on before they do anything, they proceed to start my vitals & I tell them again I have mrsa abcess & want them to use sterilized B Pressure Cuff & Thermometer etc they say it is. I worry for both myself & others safety. I fear I may contract another illness from their neglegence. Also, I don't want my germs to be passed to next patient. I've observed in disbelief their routine negledgence. How many other victims from M.H. now have MRSA as a result of it. I would like to hear from you e31bty@hotmail dot com
Pros: I can't think of any Pros after this.
Cons: POOR medical care, don't do labwork & underdiagnose. unsafe unsanitary procedures filthy facility/substandard at best
