Rate This Facility
Patient was rushed to local ER due to respiratory distress. ER found the trechea tube was dislodged inside of patient and was filthy. Dr's Hospital nurses could not figure out why the patient was experiencing respiratory distress and elevated vitals. Luckily the local ER was quick find the start of a list of problems. The patient also came to the er with high levels of oxygen by Dr's. After patient was stabilized and was admitted for observation was later found that g tube was moldy deep inside and coming out of the patients stomach and around the openning. The nurses and staff at the ER & floor were shocked as to how anyone would not change out these tubes. This is a classic case of neglect by every nurse and staff member at DR's hospital W.Covina that treated this patient. This facility/staff/nurses does not take pride in their work. The administration there flat out does not care. They said the patients records show these tubes where inspected and verified clean. Lies!
