My mother passed away at OSF Saint Anthony medical center on August 2. She was doing well until they gave her too much ativan. They made a huge mistake that they wont own up to. I will never forgive them for what they did. The nurses who helped to take care of my mom know this happened. They wont admit they screwed up that cost my mom her life.
My dad was admitted for a bowel obstruction in September, no obstruction , then was told a mass then ulcer then cancer it took 9 days for a diagnosis of gastric cancer unbelievable, nurses were not compassinate,( there was one nurse that was caring on 3rd floor her name was Brittany and she was more informative with us). Thank you Brittany.Had several unneccessary procedures done, Had to ask nurses to clean my father's room. My dad is home on hospice now, because doctors did absolutely nothing to help him they knew his health was declining and placed a port. yet they said that chance of him getting better and stronger, but told us his health was declining. I hope I never need to be hospitalized if so it will be a different hospital. There was a huge gap in lack of communication, beteewn dovtors and my family, we had to ask several times for doctors to return our calls. I will say Sherry from pallative care was very compassinate toward all of us, thank you Sherry.Now myself and family sit with our father until the Lord says it's his time to go home. I love you dad.
I had back fusion at OSF St. Anthony's in Oct 2015. Registration went fine. Pre-op was ok, except I had asked if there was a clergyman in the hospital bc I wanted someone to pray with us b4 surgery. The nurse said that she was going to see if there was anyone in the hospital. No one ever showed up nor did the nurse come in & tell us if she did or didn't get a hold of anyone. One of the nurses in pre-op said that they didn't want my pain to be abv a 2-3 on a scale of 1-10. I thought, "Wow this is great, I should have a comfortable stay." The trip to the OR was good, I was comfortable. I drifted off to sleep & then woke up in post-op. I was in quite a bit of pain. They upped my pain treatment. While in post-op I told the nurse that I needed to go to the bathroom. She said that she couldn't let me get up & could I just wait until I got to my room. She said if I did have to go that I would have to use a bedpan, as if to discourage me. But, I had to go. So I told her that I needed to go. She set things up & I asked her if it was in the right place bc it didn't feel like it was in the right place. She said that it was, so I peed & I ended up peeing all over of my butt bc the bedpan wasn't in the right place. She had a mess to clean up. Then as she was cleaning me up, she said, " Oh I guess that you did have to go." No kidding!! Most of the floor nurses were good except one that told me that I couldn't get anymore pain meds when I could have. I was sobbing from the pain & she looked me in the eye & told me that I couldn't have anymore pain medication. I complained abt her & found out that she also did this to someone else the recently. I would choose to go to Rockford Memorial Hospital b4 I would ever come back to OSF.
Been here many different times: birth, surgeries, ER, x-rays, blood drawn, so have had many different experiences. All have been wonderful. I have no complaints in regards to their facility or care of patients. It was what I expected, not over the top but not awful by any means either. I would have no problem recommending this hospital.
