Father unfortunately admitted 3 times in 3 wks. Im certain after talking to admitting doc 3rd time, that he had prev been sent home with pulmonary embolus. The care is atrocious. He would be left for hours with a wet brief, unfed all day, and gasping for air without enough oxygen or a concern as to why. Dr. Salemi was cold, callus, uncaring and unwilling to take any resposibility. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to this place.
I was admitted by my doctor. Although my insurance agreed to allow me to stay the three more days it would have taken for me to recover. Billing or head of administration decided to tell me since I couldn't walk up my steps to my home they could find me a shelter to go to. Like in a Homeless shelter. Smh I've never been spoke to or treated so poorly. I'll never go back to Brookwood for any matter. I filed an appropriate complaints. The woman was dealt with to my satisfaction. Still I'll never be back.
I was in the hospital for 2 weeks with pneumonia. During that time, the heating system was broken. If the heat was on the temperature was around 80. The only option was to turn it off when it was 30 degrees outside. I feel like it made me sicker. After several days, my doctor was finally able to get them to move me to a different floor. Also, the whole time I was in that room, it was never cleaned, not even swept. Some of the nurses were good but the majority were very argumentative and some were just hateful if my family was not in the room with me. One nurse put me in an ice bath for my fever and forgot me for an hour. My fever was only 103 and the doctor said that should never should have been done. Finally, it was impossible to wheel an IV into the restroom because the threshold was so high. The nurse told me I could either wear a diaper or use a bedside toilet in the middle of the room because they couldn't help me. I will never be admitted there again.
Love this hospital and staff. I actually took my husband to the ER and he ended up getting admitted. While there we had 2 physicians and they both came in the room together and made one diagnosis that made our lives so much better. They have great bedside manner, they're professional, honest, dedicated, and down-to-earth. I wouldn't to any other hospital.
