Ratings for Calvary
Recently had nasal septum reconstruction and UPPP. The staff in admission and the room before the theatre were unprofessional and not really friendly. Recovery and in the wards were faultless. Was clean, but some areas could do with an upgrade - especially being a private hospital. The worst person was the guy who took you from admission waiting area to the theatre, couldn't speak much English and was not friendly at all. IMO that is the part where you need the most encouragement and service. All in all not bad and would go there again.
l came to Calvary for a severe asthma attack. The disabled toilet seat was NOT bolted on and I am already a chronic pain sufferer and have fallen off the seat as it wasn't attached. I have had to be readmitted because of the pain. Maintenance staff said that they had only got the reports 9.25 am after the night nurse and Dr and staff said that it had been reported broken and nothing had been done to fix it several days prior. I'm still suffering huge amounts of pain and had to be readmitted because of the excruciating pain in my back from the fall . Could have all been prevented if maintenance had been kept up properly.
My baby was born early and jaundice 1st apgar was 2 later 9. Was very yellow and never put under the lights. One morning a midwife stood outside our bedroom door and said " watch this .... This is how you clear a room" she marched in told me we were leaving to pack our bags and we can leave immediately. I had no breast milk. One nurse continually refused to give me a bottle and kept yelling at me to "put her back on you breast". We were finally given a bottle by a different nurse after days of distress and helplessness and tears because my baby was starving. Only to have the "nasty nurse" abuse us for going behind her back to get a bottle of milk and threaten us that we had dare not do it again. The paediatrician was concerned about my baby's health as due to the jaundice she had lost an alarming amount of her birth weight. She was still banana yellow and starving. I had not been seen by the lactating consultant and was told that I would have to organise that myself from home. I raised my concern about my baby's health and was told I was worrying about nothing "new mother dismissed". As we were leaving the midwife took a call from the paediatrician regarding my baby and was told everything was fine baby was healthy and we were walking down the hall to go home. After many more bungles due to lack of care or concern from the baby nurses over the following couple of days my baby was rushed back to hospital unresponsive where they did a spinal tap, tests, put her on a drip & some 14 hours later was finally admitted as failure to thrive. Thank you for a couple of staff's nastiness and ..... Incompetence, the tears, stress, sleepless days/nights, damage to my baby. I think I have ptsd when it should have been the most beautiful experience of my life.
