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!
