did not get checked bu attending physcian untill 3rd day of stay was kept in hospital longer than should have i guess they wanted to get paid without puttin out services excet for room and board, ridiculous, medicare should check for hosital charges with no medical reason, i finally had to voluntarily check myself out, bad experience at 3rd floor palma west hospital
Was Outdated and nursing staff was non responsive, Lack of attention and care, They have a staff of doctor's who charge your insurance with out ever entering the room, Just order test after test to $$$$ the bill, Loud as Hell at night gave me a very weak 0.5 ambien, I was up all night shaking and anxiety ridden, they seem to care LESS, and more or less wanted in this state put me in a closed MRI, no sedation!!! I said HELL NO! All of a sudden they were having me release, only then did the prescribe something for what I was there for, Let me SUFFER all night like some animal! The hospital bed must have been 25 yrs old, and whole stay was a nightmare, I will go to Wellington Medical from now on, If someone whispers Palm West I will take out in a run for my Life!
Pre-surgery service was okay. However, the nursing care after my back surgery was horrible. My morphine drip kept getting kinked and would start beeping. Then I couldn't find my call button, so my roommate woke up & called for me. They always took forever to respond. They wouldn't listen when I told them I had pain in my bladder. Thank God my sister was there and discovered a problem with the catheter. After they removed it, I couldn't get anyone to help me go to the bathroom. I wasn't supposed to get out of bed without my back brace, but I often had no choice. At one point I was trapped in the bathroom unable to turn around to activate the call button. I cried and yelled and someone finally heard me.
