This is a private owned hospital people.. Took one nurse in a rush to give my daughter Reglan cheap nausea med. If IV pushed to fast causes a diatonic reaction. She was 6 months pregnant with her first child. Over 20 Doctors filled her room to watch her suffer for 3 hours til she went into cardio arrest. Not one Doctor help her standing n watching from the ER to the ICU this was a learning experience for them. Remember I said private hospital. So until her OBGYN arrived & reversed the reactions with 50 milagrams of Benadryl. Results my grandson is now 10 who was born with a brain bleed, 5 months in NICU & he is Autism along with many mental disabilities. He will never be a normal & now suffers from being different & knowing it. My daughter results is endless medical care. Burn the sending unit to the brain to her heart. Along with many life time crisis of death upon her. This year along 2017 life support 4 times from that one day you watched n learned n let her life go. But Jesus entered that child n she stop screaming only to announce his arrival & made all those Dr. witnesses to his arrival to take my child n grandson to only give them back. I watch in horror as they done a clean sweep of her room. You know who you are. I hope to this day n to your last day you remember what God showed you was inhumane of two lives. I think of you all often as I strive to keep my daughter alive to this day. My grandson suffers everyday at your personal policy to not treat another Doctors patient even If the cost is death. The Lord placed me downstairs n I watched another patient suffer the same Faith. May God have Mercy On You All, for You need it to work for this hospital. I forgive you, but I don't forget you. 2007
My family's first time going to Hoag was in the 70's and we still go there. Very patient oriented. My grandchildren and great grandchild were born there. Hoag is always improving and adding something special just when I thought they were already the greatest hospital ever!
Dr. Duma and Hoag Hospital in Neport Beach, Ca are both top rated and very professional. I owe my life to both of them. I have been diagnosed with "sino nasal undifferentiated carcinoma" (SNUC) a very aggressive cancer with a high mortality rate. I have two craniotomies and two "gamma knife" procedures as well as two radiation sessions of 42 days each. In addition I also had 14 chemo treatments ( 7 with Carbon - platin) and 7 erbitux infusions to try and control this "monster". My latest MRI showed no new tumors! I will have another in late June to verify that the procedures worked! My PET scan did not illuminate other areas in my body. This is a good sign!!! I have no illusion that this cancer will ultimately get me! So far so good!
Hoag has always provided excellent care in many ways whether hospitalized in cardiac unit, Icu, ER, OR, Nuclear Medicine.....the list goes on. I think every hospital has a few exceptions, including Hoag, such as having one nurse or doctor here or there who has a bad day or has seen too many patients. I had a terrible young nurse in ER one time that had no business treating actual human people. I had a cardiologist diagnose a pulmonary disorder when i was positive i had a cardiac event (heart attack). I had to convince this on call cardiologist he was wrong. once testing was done and my own cardiologist saw me the correct diagnosis was made. Hoag is phenominal in helping with people needing financial assistance. I believe this shows they truly care about their entire community and goes a long way in the compassion department.
I trusted my Hoag PCP AND Hoag hospital, from 2011 until almost 2014, that the lump in my breast was nothing... The mammogram was "clean", when in reality, the radiologists had recommended a follow-up MRI due to fibrous tissue EACH YEAR, that could have saved my DCIS from *just* becoming invasive in 2015 when caught by another institution!!! I WAS NEVER TOLD A FOLLOW-UP BREAST MRI WAS RECOMMENDED, NOR THAT WITH FIBRIC CYSTS, MAMMOGRAMS ARE ONLY ABOUT 60% EFFECTIVE AT LOCATING DCIS, WHEREAS AN MRI IS ABOUT 99% EFFECTIVE!!!! My insurance paid, no questions asked, for the breast MRI at the other place... So why not ever inform me??? Why won't you let your patients see their records or notes either? IT IS A PATIENT"S RIGHT TO OBTAIN THEIR MED RECORDS, yet the "24-48 hours" I was told my records would take turned into 4 months!!! AND Those records contained not a single HOAG record when I received them! Only secondary copies from outside physicians I requested be sent to my doctor, so that my medical information was all up to date!!!! The last straw??? I had a minor stroke, at in the HOAG ER for about 6 hours, was told by the attending physician that it was "shift change soon," and he didn't think anything was wrong with me, so he was going to let the nurse read the preliminary radiology report of my BRAIN ONLY MRI (yup! No looking at the "upper spinal column" for that doc to check for trauma, or cerebellum strokes! He was DONE fr the night!!!!) I asked, very politely, for copies of my lab reports & radiology report as the nurse discharged me... and I was denied a copy of the radiology report... STILL have never seen one... I ended up at a different hospital the next day though!!!! I would NEVER, EVER, EVER GO TO HOAG, even for a vet issue!!!!
