I was brought to ER by ambulance. By the time I was seen at Midnight, my bus had stopped running for the night. Was told have to wait in waiting room til bus service available 6 hrs. later. As I waited, TWO others wetegiven cab vouchers. The 1st woman wasn't even seen, rambled & sweared while she waited, and was upset she couldn't get Methadone. After hearing a 2nd person paged for a cab, I inquired about policy. An underlings explained the supervisor told her the above reasons. When I clarified she said she never said that & it's based on 'medical needs.' I guess being disabled with asthma isn't reason enough. A security guard actually implied maybe I was "mean" to the Dr.! Pathetic excuse for a "Hospital."

Very unhappy with the medical care provided. I was in the emergency room with symptoms of a stroke and once taken back I was left there for five hours without anything to drink (even after asking a few times). The hospital is dated and the medical care was as if the right hand did not know what the left hand was doing. Unorganized and poor communication. An overnight stay seemed like days. I would not recommend going to this facility if at all possible.

My father broke his hip last week from a fall. He is 90 and was living at home on his own. He was alert, oriented and stable. After 5 days in this place he now has 2 very large bedsores When I ASKED the staff to turn him every 2 hours their response was to let him rest!!! I feel the staff felt at 90 he wasn't going to make it so what. There was only one shining ray from his evening nurse who was very concerned and helpful. Don't make my mistake and go here!

UPMC McKeepsport Hospital.Very, very rude nurses and staff! My father was taken there against my wishes, some story about a fire so ambulance could not take him where I wanted I was told by McKeesport hospital. Every time I tried to talk to my father and he started to tell me what was happening, a nurse took the phone away from him! I was told he was tired when asked what happened. We were trying to talk!I do not have a car to drive there so am trapped. I will update this later if something happens to my father who is in his 90's. He was fine at one hospital then transferred there and it's been all down hill suddenly!!! Still trying to get him transferred to where I want at this writing. Most rude nurses and staff I have ever experienced in any hospital.

They let the patient sit in her pwn BM for 2 hours before the patients husband & son had to clean her up. The patient went in for a leg amputation and when the nurses were putting the patient into bed, they didn't know what they were doing..and they said so... and they rolled the patient over on the patient's face. They neglected the patient so badly that the patient now has bedsores all over their body that turned into holes.

The cut-backs in staffing have greatly driven the level of service downward. The staff seems to be preoccupied and overworked. During ER visit, nurse dissappeared for over 3 hours. Discharged with chest pain, no medication or discharge instructions. Not fed for over 8 hours, and given two frozen meals when discharged and told to heat them up at home.

Correct spelling of a nurse

Correct spelling of a nurse
Details:

To Nursing

Need to get the correct spelling of a nurse who prior name was (Grezenski) don't know if thats spelled right. Her first name is Yvette. People might of called her sissy. She had five girls. One set that would be would be 42 now and the other set is 17 years young. I know she got married again but only need her name in the early 70's the correct spelling. If she still works for you. Have her contact me on face book at Pope Sidney or e-mail at dr_sid@hotmail.com. I know her twins were Crystal and Christina, then Jennifer, and then the second set of twins.

Inept Staffing

Inept Staffing
Details:

The nurses at this hospital are very inept and EXTREMELY RUDE. They let one of their patients lay in their own BM for 2 hours until fianlly the patient's family had to clean the mess up beacuse the staff wouldn't help. The patient went in for a leg amputation... the BM could have EASILY gotten into that open wound and caused infections! The staff also didn't know how to put her into bed... they said so outloud. They rolled the patient onto the bed and the patient landed right on their face. When the patient complained about the horrible treatment they had been given one of the head nurses actually YELLED at the patient for getting her nurses into trouble. The nurses also neglected her so badly she now has bed sores all over their body which have turned into holes! One of the nurses even said "Why should you care about getting your leg cut off..you haven't even been using it for years!" (She had been paralyzed since the early 80's). These nurses also neglected to take the proper care with her amputated leg that it DID get infected and had to be amputated further up. My entire family is VERY upset with the care given to the patient.
