Details:

My sister died there in April, due to neglect , admitted by several professionals there including her doctor. Our family chose at that time not to pursue things any further, but now I am reconsidering due to the unbelievable poor healthcare my mother-in-law received there last week in the emergency room. She was brought in by ambulance suffering cardiac problems. It felt like the twilight zone there, she was put in a room in ER and almost never checked on at all. She had blood backed up in her IV that the nurse saw and did nothing about until they were about to move her to another floor and I'm sure then it was only because she didn't want anyone else to see it like that. It was decided to move her about the same time they brought her supper, she was hooked up to transport monitors while she was eating. Her meal looked good overall except for the two packs of sugar and large cookie on her tray-she is a diabetic and they knew it. We ask the nurse about her not having the right meal and was told "If it were one of my family members and I was worried about it, I'd throw the cookie away", there was no apology, no offer to get her something to replace the snack she couldn't eat, and no assurance that she would notify anyone to make sure it didn't happen again. Her attitude made us think she was mad because we even mentioned it. While she was eating her alarm started going off, we kept thinking someone would come, it kept going off, after 5 minutes we finally went and got someone. What if that had been an emergency and no family members were present? Aren't you supposed to get better care in the ER? She finally got transferred to another hospital, where she got the kind of quality care we all want for our family. This used to be the only facility in the area, it no longer is-Thank God!
