I had 2 infections after a surgery. due to the hospital. I was in perfect health before I went in for surgery. The nursing was horrible except a few.I had to get up in the night because nobody would come to help me. I would drag My Iv with 200+ stiches to the bathroom. I could write 3 pages. I will never go back. oh I also have bills for the infections they gave me. How is that right? Insurance should not have to pay either.

Lawrence General certainly brought by father of 90 years to an earlier than necessary death. Inaccurate diagnosis. Drugged to keep him quiet. Requested a transfer and the doctor discouraged Lahey Clinic from accepting him. A horrible hospital!
