They wipe down the chairs and machines, bathrooms are clean, etc. However, there is a practice I disagree with which I made the decision to change clinics. On Monday, Sept 2. 2007 I wasn't feeling well. I was able to sleep in the chair after my canillation. When a patient has to use the restroom, the practice in the Streetsboro, OH clinic is to have the patient defecate in a bag with a toilet rim over it. The patient is surrounded by curtains. On Monday, after the patient filled the bag, the staff just left it there. To make matters worse, they were just standing on the other side of the room gossiping about trivial matters such as birthdays, TV shows, etc. I wanted to vomit. I couldn't take the stench anymore, and I complained about it. I also demanded to get the hell out of here. Once the staff realized I was complaining about the bag, they finally got around to disposing it. After I got home, my wife called and complained - but got nowhere. We also talked with the clinic manager and I explained to her how I know more about what's happening in the clinic than she does. I told her about the declining quality of care by her staff, and my opinion how they care more about corporate policy than patients. I was told policy was in place for "patient safety." I gave several examples of various dialysis centers I've been to over the years that contradicted what she was telling me. For example, letting the patient off the machine (with needles in), and letting them back on after using the bathroom. Of course, being a good corporate lackey, she defended her staff and said "I'm sorry you feel this way....I have meetings with my staff so I know what's going on here." My wife asked for a copy of the policies we were questioning and we were told we could get a copy on Friday (Tomorrow). So, because of a cumulative series of things, I have decided to transfer to another clinic. I've also called the Portage County, OH board of health, but they told me they have no jurisdiction over dialysis centers. My wife wants me to "press the issue." However, if no patients complain, nothing else will be done. I'm already labeled a whiner in my clinic, but I don't care - if something is wrong I'm going to speak up. I wish other patients would do the same.
