Ratings for PATEWOOD MEMORIAL HOSPITAL
The building itself was lovely. My surgery went well (total hip replacement) the problem was my nurse. She refused to respond to me if I had a question. Accept once. When I told her I was in terrible pain, she said I’d just have to suffer through. Thank God PT came in and saw me crying in pain. He was upset by the info I gave him and immediately got me help. Nurse Kathy behaved completely different when any other staff was around. It was so bad at one point when she put something in my IV I was nervous that she may hurt me. I thankfully only had her for one very long shift. She doesn’t belong working with people
Staff totally unresponsive to my questions and concerns. Had their OWN AGENDA and were incapable of deviating from it. Asking them to WASH HANDS before touching me was greeted with a blank stare. Their reply was they had used antibacterial hand cream and gloves (pulled from an open container ANYONE might have sneezed on.) Hospital is shiny and new. But there was dust in the corners and over doors etc. Lobby are had upholstered surfaces with obvious stains causing one to wonder how concerned the staff was about cleanliness. I brought a newspaper from home and chose to sit on sheets of it (unread newspapers are nearly bacteria free.) If one is overwhelmed about sparkle and glamour but not so observant of cleanliness, this might be his/her KIND OF PLACE!!!
