I had ACL reconstruction done by DR.Ryan Martin at the foothills hospital in February of this year. I met him once before surgery and right away he knew what was wrong with my knee by looking at the MRI and scedualed for surgery. I was amazed at how kind he is and to top it off the day of surgery he explained everything to me so I had no questions. He did my surgery taking my hamstring graphs and using them to create my new ACL. The first week it was painful like every surgery can be but I felt so much support in my knee then I have had in years. Really cool. I am truly greatful to him and the amazing job he did and I can finally walk and not be worried about my knee giving out.
I was verbally abused and mistreated I was made to feel like a criminal. Unit 32 is the worst. I have anorexia I didn't kill someone. I was told I was going to relapse and that I had distroyed my family. I was 15 and I progressively got worst my last admittion I actually lost weight terrible doctors and phycologests ( sorry can spell) do not go here if you struggle with an eating disorder! Also the alzimers patients were also miss treated locked in there rooms and humiliation ran high. The staff literally tied them to chairs so they wouldn't have to do anything.
Putting myself out there in hopes of helping others decide if this is a good place or not! I recently went there for mental health issues. The front end people were super nice and understanding. Once I was moved back to the emergency rooms designated for mental health patients it was nothing short of disgusting! The bathroom was filthy and had no toilet paper in sight! I mentioned this to them and the lame excuse that I got was that housekeeping must have forgot to put some in there! In other words ladies you are on your own to wipe because a few hours later they still didn't have any! Once I was in the so called private room is was incredibly filthy!!! It looked liked it hadn't been cleaned ohhhhhhh EVER! the floors were filthy and the walls had a lot of paint picked off. I can understand how the paint picking happens though because they leave you in for hours alone! I went in there with depression and anxiety! I was not violent or angry at all when I first got there but - I ended up leaving mad as mad can be due to the treatment that I got!!! Clean up the rooms to at least livable conditions and put some toilet paper in the bathroom okay! We have mental health issues but we are not animals!!!
Fractured tib/fib, closed, w/ 5 Lisfranc fractures during to crushing in my right foot and leg from a high speed accident. Pain was controlled well with quick responses from the nursing team for the most part. A bit of difficulty with communication, but let me remind people that they can always request to look at their charts if they feel something has been recorded incorrectly. They ARE your medical records after all. Anyways, my only concern was that housekeeping went 3 days without changing the garbage in my room because I moved it close to my bed. Aside from that, no significant complaints. Surgery was done well and cleanly, currently a week post and everything is healing nice no infection and minimal scarring. They made sure I was set up with homecare and had supplies just in case homecare had a delay.
