Once you enter #Lovelace Hospital in Albuquerque NM be prepared to NEVER leave. I've experienced so much Sufferage/Death these past weeks that now my husband too lays now near death, despite requests to have him moved to UNM. They are extremely slow on important Life-saving procedures or at times scratch doing them at all, that is if they are not trying to do these procedures to the Wrong Patient. I've literally had to try to dodge Medical Staff (Sophia Roger's & Nurse Cynthia), in their inconsideration for my family & husband life, which now plays on his death bed. As they Constantly HARASS me to go against my husband wishes & terminate his life. At around 5pm on April 12th 2019 my husbands sugar was reading around 71. Any compentant staff whom deals w/dibeties would've quickly worked to bring his sugar back up to normal readings. Not until about 9:45 Nurse Cindy decided to check his sugar once again, which became so low by this time it was not registering, thus rendering my husband unstable whereupon he quickly went into Cardiac Arrest. Uncaring as to what my family feels & believes we now deal w/Nurse Cindy's constant harrassment of how my husbands organs are shutting down & his need for death😥🙏🙏

Well, look at this Lovelace Health System! Looks as if I'm not the only one who feels this way. Nurses telling you to shut up, yanking out your oxygen tubes, not giving one Damn how much pain you're in. Me and Curtis both thought it was like a seen out of an old time horror film. American Horror Story sums it up! Dr. Mark Brynairski is a fabulous neurosurgeon but someone should seriously inform just how shitty the nurses are on the 8th and 9th floor! I will let him,and Jeff know at my next appointment. Kristen on the 8th floor is the only one I liked. The rest should be fired ASAP after a good lashing and given a � for Christmas because believe me, they don't have one. F'ING evil! FYI I've reported my experience with the media and insurance company. Whoever is in charge of the one responsible hiring you should look into their hiring procedures, policies as well as training and who's training them. Because they all but one, Kristen on 8th, sucked! I was there for a seriously invasive and intense spinal surgery December 5th through the 12th. Go ahead and look it up. Look up each nurse that was assigned to me 8th and 9th floor and can their asses! I've worked in the medical field for 13 years, I've had a surgery at UNM and I know Damn well that how you are running that place and what you allow goes against everything you went to school for in the first place. You and Dr. B should be ashamed and very embarrassed that you have such heartless, cruel and evil women on your payroll. I chose this hospital because of one reason Dr. Mark Brynairski! I desperately needed this surgery to get My Life Back, to be the women and mom I was before and not have to depend on anyone taking care of me. I never thought in a million years I would be treated as I was.

Terrible staff unclean environment. Waited two hours for discharge paperwork in the ER due to staff losing the paperwork. One staff member thought it would be great to sing at the top of his lungs in the pod where patients were waiting to be seen by the Dr. My wife went in due to post surgery pain and she felt worse when we left.
