I live in Pinellas county and go to TGH/USF for my care because it is horrible over here in Pinellas. The medical care is pathetic!!! Worst I"ve seen in my life. I am in a wheelchair and people are so accommodating @ TGH. I see the best doctors at USF, Dr. Anderson & Dr. Padhya. I rave about TGH all the time to everyone. Staff, employees, doctors far superior than anywhere else including St. Joe's which could learn a lot from TGH. I am also, happy that some doctors take Medicaid because so many do NOT take Medicaid at all. TGH is wonderful..

In previous years I have had very good experienceshape with TGH. Never a complaint. I wouldn't even consider another hospital. My 91year old father was in the last March and his treatment was very disappointing. Not at all what I thought that to be. My sister found my dad laying in a urine soaked bed twice. One morning he was alone with food in his bed. He was unable to feed himself but was left with his food tray alone. The nurse assigned to him was completely aloof. My sister and I asked for clean sheets and changed them ourselves. I'm still angry over this. Never would I had believed it had I not experienced it. We even insisted the ambulance bring him to Tgh. Certainly not the standard of care I had been used to. I'm extremely disappointed.

I brought my husband to the ER on the morning of March 3, 2015. The staff decided within a few hours to admit him, the doctors seemed to be genuinely concerned. But once they made the decision to keep him, it all fell apart. They left him in the "awaiting testing" area for 6 hours before they could find him a bed. Then they left him in the "observation area" (1J1) for 3 days, because they couldn't find a room. While there, the nurses kept trying to check his blood sugar and give him insulin even though he isn't diabetic and there were no indications that he needed it...but a doctor put it in there, so instead of calling the doctor, they just kept trying to inject him!
My husband wasn't responding to the antibiotics, and no doctor had come to see him for over 24 hours, so we asked for the patient representative. We were told by RN James, that the patient representative is too busy to talk to every patient who is upset about their care. When the doctor finally came, we asked why they hadn't checked for MRSA, so she put in a consult for infectious disease, who did a culture for MRSA and added a second antibiotic. 36 hours after coming to the hospital, he was quarantined in the observation area, without a bathroom, sink, or shower because he did have MRSA. Do you know how many people had touched him in his first day and a half at TGH before he was quarantined and how many other patients could've been exposed? How do you stay clean if you can't shower or even wash your hands? They didn't even change his sheets for 48 hours!
Overall, we have had to fight to get him seen, diagnosed, and treated.
Then I had to take my son to the ER because he was feeling dizzy and had a neck ache that concerned me during a weekend. The doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with him so they wanted to do a lumbar puncture. I turned it down. Come Monday morning I took him to our family doctor. He was diagnosed with an acute ear infection! They wanted to tap into his spine for an ear infection!!! Stay away from this place at all costs!
