I've heard this horror hole referred to as Overlooked Hospital.I only wish I were. A month later & I still have BAD flashbacks to the HORRIBLE way I was treated as a patient. Forget the grand piano in the lobby for the Benefactors to see.I was in cardiac care, & they have what they call "sitters" which are people (majority from Haiti) who LITERALLY sit at the foot of your bed & monitor your every move,like guards with an attitude.If I got up to walk out of room to get a towel to wash(NEVER was I once offered a change in hospital gown etc) they were annoyed.& the nurses? for the most part they were young kids barely out of school who often were spiteful. & forget monitors.I don't know why mine were even on,forever falling off no one checked,a JOKE. I am middle aged & relatively fit, NOT something they wanted to see & I witnessed & heard how rough they were with 2 diff elderly roommates in beds, so clearly I being up & mobile was NOT what they were accustomed to & they didn't like it one bit. They should be ashamed.I was so depressed. & one day a woman came in with trained dog(sheltie) & I was elated, having had Shelties & missing my own dogs.The dog liked me & the woman said we'll stay awhile longer,but in came a young nurse who had been at her cart outside my room & did NOT like me & said you can go now with the dog she needs to take her pill. Turned out this "PILL" was nothing more than a vitamin just added that could have waited 5 minutes.Spiteful indeed.The day I was being transfered to another hospital for a procedure they didn't do(Thank GOD)a new "watcher" came in & tried to follow me INTO the bathroom. I told her NO, & said I was leaving.I got dressed to go & she flipped about me not being in a Hosp gown.Insane.I when to the other Hosp(few miles away) & sanity preveiled! No more dirty room, no watchers just professional compassionate care.The diff. was astounding! I'm speaking up because people HAVE to. If no one says anything this treatment of patients will go on. Overlook needs to be Overhauled!!!! more
