They were very discourteous with me, I asked a nurse if it was alright that I wait outside the ER because I had a fever and wanted to break it and it was warm in the waiting room. He says yes sure no problem. Hours go by and I ask what is going on here, I'm told by a new nurse that I was already called. I said I most certainly was not. And they said I have to restart the process and pay a new copay. I left after being treated with absolutely no respect. If I am told something by staff I expect them to hold true to it. PERIOD.

On December 9, 2009, a patient name Gwendolyn Loketi was disapeared from her room, 323.

On December 9, 2009, a patient name Gwendolyn Loketi was disapeared from her room, 323.
Details:

My name is Yoster A. Robet, and I was her representative or day-day taker. I found out from her that she got a male therophist, but she didn't tell me till I heard his voices talking to one of the nurses in the hallway. She told me that she was sleeping that time when I called her up. I was wondering if he can do sexual abuse the patient during his working hours. The nurse station didn't know who was in the patient's room or what the therophist (man) was doing with the patient. Because she was retarded or mental illness. Some doctors don't have license to message the patient,in other word, sexual abuse. Have to go by the medical policy or know the policy, before they touched the patient. Some of the janitors can be theropists. Who knows.And they all Phillippinos that worked in the Hawaii Medical Hospital. When the patient was living in the hospital, every day the workers (janitors) male and female taking some medical supplies home, like blankets, socks, and sheets, including shampoos. And they blamed the patients that already discharged. Even the wheelchairs had no legs, and I wondering what happened to it.At the time I was with my wife in the hospital, I saw most of the women (old)walking from the hospital with a big plastic hand bags, walking toward the medical plaza. I was sitting by the table, smoking my cigarette, wondering what in the big plastic bag when they dragging down to the medical plaza. I hope Hawaii Medical Hospital won't bankrupt. Who know this scam will understand why the medical supplies run fast. Thank you.
