For a hospital that you would go to for either, emergency or other procedures I would think that they would be more concerned for there patients! Its a shame that you cant even go in and feel safe in a hospital any more and still have no where else to turn for help unless you drive 100s of miles away from your home! If I could I'd show you what my phone looked like after being in Labor and delivery for almost 2 hrs!I've been going to other places to get help with doctors for over 10 years now and will continue to do so when they don't seem to care that their Staff are stealing Patients Property and dont even warn you that it could happen ! Alot are rude there and act like they are God or something and if you go against there opinion you get treated even worse by asking questions!If I had a choice in most cases I would never go to Trinity not even for getting blood drawn!
I've been a patient at Trinity Hospital several times in the last 25 years. However, my visit in September 2016 is the first since the major changes that occurred over the past several months, which included a change in the administrative staff. The improvements that have been made, have changed this hospital from being, in my opinion, one of the worst hospitals in the area, to one of the best, if not the best, hospitals in the area. Before, most of the staff was rude and acted like they were there for the paycheck and the patients were a bother to them. It would take several minutes to get assistance when the nurse call button was pressed. The majority of the doctors would either not allow the patient to explain their symptoms, or ignore what the patient would tell them. Granted, their were a few that were good, but they were the exception, not the rule. This time I was transferred from the Mountrail County Medical Center "Stanley Hospital" to the Trinity Hospital via the Stanley Ambulance. The ER staff was ALL very kind, courteous and attentive to my needs. They all listened to & regarded what I told them, regarding my condition and care. The ER doctor, Dr. Saffarian was very kind, thorough, and attentive. Once I was moved up to 5th floor. My attending physician was Dr. Turneau. All of the 5th floor staff was outstanding. Everyone from the housekeepers to the RNs to Dr. Turneau were very friendly, kind, courteous, and attentive to my needs. There were a few things that really stood out. When I was a patient in Trinity Hospital, prior to the changes, I would have to suffer for as long as an hour or 2, before I would finally get some medication to relieve the pain, even though the prescription would allow a dose when I request it. However, this time, I received pain medication within a matter of minutes of making the request. Also, this time, I received a response within a minute of pressing the Nurse Call Button. The other issue that I noticed, was that the Lab Techs listened, when I told them that they would have to use a small butterfly needle, to draw my blood, because my veins are very fine and have a tendency of collapsing or slipping to the side. Before, many of the Lab Techs would ignore this advice and only use the butterfly needle, after several unsuccessful and painful attempts with the large needles. When I was in Trinity Hospital, this time, I had to have an invasive procedure done. The specialist and anesthesiologist, both, explained the procedure including the advantages and risks of having the procedure done. They answered all of my questions and made sure that I understood what was to be done. I was most certain that the advantages far outweighed the risks. I don't remember the name of the specialist that did the procedure. Dr. Turneau said that he is one the doctors that travels to hospitals, in this region, that are in need of a specialist, in his field. A few years ago, Trinity Hospital would have been the last hospital that I would have recommended someone go to. Now, not only do I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TRINITY HOSPITAL, but the next time I need to go to a Hospital, TRINITY WILL BE MY FIRST CHOICE...
I have been to Trinity Health two times so far and BOTH times I had a bad experience. I don't know where the world they get there doctors or who gives them a license to practice medicine, but I went into the ER and they couldn't diagnose me nor did they even try.... the only thing they COULD treat me for was nausea.... like what the heck??? nausea was the LEAST of my concerns... and coming from someone without health insurance, they billed me up the a** for some nausea medication... I realllllllly dread going to Trinity, but sometimes I have no choice since this is the only hospital in Minot. I have NOT met one decent physician yet. Oh and by the way, the office workers that work there are RUDE! and UNPROFESSIONAL!
