The EKG department at JPM hospital does not properly respect a women's modesty or dignity. Ask for a sheet to cover your chest during EKG electrode placement and testing, make sure you are properly covered during a stress test . Leave your bra on for a Holter Monitor test, for years Gander hospital has told women to "undress from the waist up" for this simple test, St.John's and Corner Brook just ask women to open up their blouse and leave the bra on for the very same procedure! Demand better respect.
Spent several days in hospital after having my baby. OBS staff are great but need to be more organized when it comes to patient care. I found one nurse would direct me to breast feed every 3 hours and then after shift change another nurse would tell me to let my child sleep and nurse when he woke up. Being a new mom I found it very confusing. My child had a lot of health issues which made things even more complicated. I felt like I was out of the loop on things. Overall the nurses on OBS were great to work with.
I have a friend who is right now sitting in emergency crazy in pain. Was on 6 morphine a day. Dr seen her yesterday and said he was going to increase it. Never happened and tonight the nurse haven’t even had the decency to bring her the pill for suppertime yet and she will soon be due for her bedtime one. Been there since yesterday afternoon and haven’t came in to change her . The bandages they put on yesterday are wet and in need of changing. She is waiting on a room. She understands they are busy but they can find time I’m sure to give her a pain pill the she is supposed to have had hours ago. She is crying in pain and being ignored. She is in there alone. Time for these issues to be dealt with. Hire the staff that’s needed to get those beds opened for God Sakes. Animals are treated far better !!
My partner went for an EKG before she was ask to get undressed the nurse left the room and the male tech asked her to undress and put all the leads on her without the female nurse there as the female nurse left the room to talk to someone and left her alone with him.Central health i hope you read these reviews as this is putting patients at risk of assult.
The medical treatment of this hospital is terrible. My mother died because they didn't have anyone on the weekend to do a procedure. And by the time they had someone she was too sick to have it. I am So angry I don't even think they knew she was going to pass away and how sick she was and she died alone. Incompetent is an understatement. Our plan was to retire home. You wouldn't pay me enough money to live close to this hospital.
The only problem I have with JPM is they NEED to start enforcing the law when it comes to people parking in the handicapped spaces, especially the couple right across from the hospital entrance. My husband has really bad neuropathy in his feet and we have had to park in the parking spaces in the parking lot farther away about 98 % of the time we have gone there because there has been at least one vehicle with no visible handicapped sticker parked in the ones closer to the hospital . For someone like my husband, we may as well be parked by the mall instead of the handicapped parking else where at JPM , the out come is the same.
The paramedics, staff of emergency and the third floor staff were outstanding in caring for my wife during an emergency landing at Gander airport on October 31st, 2014. Everyone showed caring and compassion and were extremely helpful for myself in making arrangements to get back home after my wife was released.
