Gottlieb Memorial Hospital is ABSOLUTELY, HIGHLY NOT RECEOMMENDED!!!
In mid November 2010, My Beloved, Dear, Caring Grandmother, grandma
Wanda Nida passed away in this uncaring "hospital." They put her on
ventilator way too long, we wanted to take her down on oxygen mask but
staff & doctors did not recommend saying it's too dangerous. I wish we
did, if she was to die, fine, at least we could have had final
conversation with her. Because of tube she was on on for 10 days she
was unable to say anything & her organism weakened thus leading to
multiple organ failure, septi shock. It's not death that I am against,
we all must die (thank goodness, only justice left in the world, all
must face sooner or later), but the memory of her being uncomfortable
in that ventilator tube. I wish I can go back in time to November 10
when she was pretty much OK & simply wait for the doctor to give order
to take tube out.
Nurse Ewa said she was getting better, true, so i though hey let's
wait 2 more days why not, let's make her really better, by 7th day if
she can can talk, normally reply, we'll surely take the darn tube out
no matter what. Dr. Maher Najjar (who also works at 2525 S Michigan
Ave Chicago, IL 60616). This internist, pulmonary doctor of "15 years
of experience" is no doctor, he never replied to any calls, nothing,
never recommended anything. If you are on ventilator tube it's
possible ventilator pneumonia germ will cause pneumonia & at this age
is not recommended!Only few nurses were good, rest were pathetic. My
grandmother was saved in ER (november 6) & I am greateful to doctor
David there, he saved her! But the ICU where she was moved later on,
wow, the staff is absolute zero, garbage. Dr. Maher Najjar, her
pulmonary doctor, I have no words for him & his associates, wow, he
should be animal doctor, even animals would prefer to die rather be
treated by him. Im heartbroken. My life will no longer be the same. If
u have emergency go to any nearest hospital, if this is it, fine, but
when u get better, never stay there hour longer when u dont have to.
Very rude people, even called security when I called. When my
grandmother was about to die, they called doctor Ivanov who treats
critical patients, but why was she called when it was too late, to
show off hospital is doing its business right? Her primary physician
Meera Madappallil (also works at 2425 W 22nd in oak brook) did it only
after I complained my grandmother to highter authorities is not
getting proper treatment for kidneys! I could go on forever with this
story. Out of 10 days in her hospital, I faxed something 9 times to
remind the doctors, nurses to better look over her. They even accused
me of being doctor. I had no idea dental technician is MD in their
stupid empty minds!
If it was God's will for my grandmother to go, ok, I guess, but not
this way, not this way to remember her final days. It's so hard to
cope, not only for me but my mother & uncle who lives outside USA.
Grandma was happy to see me last day she was conscious but I know it
was not easy for her with those freaking tubes. Everything about this
hospital IS NO GOOD, NOW THEY WANT 180 000$ FOR WHAT? THAT''S BAD JOKE,
LOL! STAY AWAY! TELL OTHERS, STAY HEALTHIER SOMEWHERE ELSE! THIS
GOTTLIEB MEMORIAL HOSPITAL SHOULD NOT EVEN TREAT ANIMALS! I GAVE IT
ONE STAR, IT SHOULD BE BELOW ZERO, ABSOLUTE ZERO ON KELVIN SCALE.
THEY EVEN CANT AFFORD GOWN, WHEN SHE DIED SHE WAS STASHED INTO BODY BAG NAKED, WHAT SHAMEFUL HOSPITAL & STAFF!!!
ON A CALVIN SCALE OF -273, THESE ARE NOTHING BUT FACTS!
