If you are a senior citizen do not go to St. Marys Hospital. They will not work with family to preserve life. They only want to take it, or allow a slow miserable death procedure with the patient to suffer. They call it dignity, problem is that is not what the word dignity meaning is. When I asked how is it dying w/dignity when the patient limb is dead and full of gangrene in their bed of a closed room instead of trying medications first. They did not listen to us at anytime and allowed it to go for over 5 days of doing nothing, refusing to act even with guardians orders to administer medications, and etc. All they wanted to do is go round, round robin on not doing anything for our loved one. This is terrible and not the way to treat anyone. Healthcare is the pits in Grand Rapids, MI at St. Marys Mercy Hospital. This is not the first time for us either. Doctors are not reading patients chart history of medical procedures and for stomach bleeding, caused bleeding ulcers due to Plavix a blood thinner, and aspirin allergy. They said they were following their ethics and dignity rules/regulations. Bunk! We can't treat our pets like this, it is called inhumane, and they would jail us, fine us for such acts of animal abuse. How much more is this not to be considered inhuman treatment?!
Not enough staff in ER to treat patients. Left tourniquet on arm after putting in IV and left. Family had to remove. Would not listen to family but did their own thing and missed treating the problem until too late. Would not talk with patient's doctors who knew the extensive medical history. Dirty ER room with treatment bandages just thrown on the floor and left. Stunningly worse experience here than another local hospital for the exact same problem. Will do everything possible not to ever go back there.
If you're elderly and have a life threatening illness please go elsewhere. Some staff in the ICU would rather ship the elderly off to hospice instead of working to save the patient. Who are these people to play God? Just because you are older doesn't mean your life has less value! The elderly person I'm referring to could have been saved at another hospital but at St. Mary's the medical staff refused to perform life saving procedures due to religious focus of the hospital. Now I know why this place is referred to as "the morgue." NEVER AGAIN!
