I went to the emergency room because I was having really bad flank pain. I was given some kind of medication that made me really numb but did not take the pain away. After six hours of this drug. I was told I was going into surgery to remove my galbladder. Everything from that moment on went by really fast. They put me through the c scan, then into a wheelchair, and while in the wheelchair, and being pushed to surgery,A nurse was doing a EKG. I was very confused. I remember feeling like I was a organ doner. The nurse told me to write down what I had in my purse. That was the last thing I remember until I woke up in a recovery room that looked like a laundry room. I immediately demanded to speak to the Surgeon or Dr. but instead of a face to face, I was escorted to a speaker phone in the middle of the room. I was so bothered by the whole experience thus far. I wanted to speak with my husband and heard that he had been asking to see me. They said that I couldn't see him until I was moved to a room. I demanded for them to let me see him. I was freaking out. They kept saying that they were going to manage my pain but they did not. When I was moved to a room I wanted the nurse to show me were I signed for that operation. She could not provide me with a signed consent form because I did not sign one. I was so bothered and I still am. I left shortly after against medical advice. I will never go to that hospital or any of the Franciscan Hospitals even if my life depended on it. That experience has made me paranoid and distrustful. I have not been seen by a Dr. since, and I am not sure what they really even did to me. I did get a copy of my medical records from that surgery and there are so many unanswered questions I have. I got a explanation of benefits letter from my insurance. I responded asking them to clarify some of the things the hospital was wanting to be reimbursed for, like 3 different types of implants ? What did they implant in me??? It is still being investigated.... What a Hospital Horror Story my experience was at St.Claire's in Lakewood Wa.

I was stuck in this god forsaken place overnight after pelvic reconstruction surgery. The nurses seemed to not have been trained in with pain management, or communication. They did not stay on top of my pain at all post surgical, I went hours without pain mess that they said they would bring right away. They would tell me they were giving me morphine, but it was not morphine.The second day while reaching in pain, they told me I had to have a catheter reinserted, at this point I was crazy with pain and fear, so I checked myself out AMA. I will die before I go to this hospital again.

My father in-law was admitted into the ICU from the ER around 4am. At that time the 1st nurse was told clearly that my father in law did not speak or understand English and that he was currently in a lot of pain. The communication between the nurses was appalling. I left the hospital at 5am and called on his status at 9am. The 2nd nurse had no idea that my father in-law spoke no English nor that he was in pain. My father in-law was not provided pain medication for the pain he stated he had at 4am. The care in the ICU continued to be less than acceptable for the rest of that day until my husband and I showed up to speak with the nursing staff directly. The 3rd nurse took the time to actually listen to what was being said and finally assisted to get the care my father in-law needed. I feel that the experience as a whole was truly awful due to the fact the nurses could not even communicate between each other for information as important as if the patient can understand and speak English and also that the patient was in terrible pain. The lack of proper use of the hospitals interpreter’s services is also appalling. An 83 year old man had to lay in bed in pain from 4am until at least 3pm in the afternoon. This is completely unacceptable. I pray he never needs care at this hospital again.

Just had a test done with Dr. Duras and have a lengthy scar as he said I would but my right breast is very intented and I am so emotional about it. Does ever a woman have a chance to get reconcunstrivive surgery on the breasts for the huge indent damage. I feel it should be covered. It wasnt as if I was out looking to think I may have breast cancer. Please let me know if there is a chance of reconstruction because its making me insecure and insurance should have to pay for this. Dr. Duras was great and I know he did all he could but I feel I am owed a reconstruction. Please call 253-861-5775. Thank you Barb Zimmerman and wonder if other women have felt this way. I'm not out for new boobs but do deserve proper looking ones that are not indented and deformed.
