WARNING: Criminal Establishment – BEWARE of staff stealing patient identity.. First of all my wife had a horrible experience at the ER University Hospital on Fletcher. I don't have enough time to explain how poorly her situation was handled. The staff and doctors were not very professional and our stay should have been half the time it took. Wife had a kidney stone, was in great pain as anyone who has had a stone pass can attest too..not much they can do for that but supply pain relief....$10,000 was the bill..YES!!!!!!!! Criminal...and then someone stole my wife's identity and racked up additional $1000's on a credit card. Purchases were made within miles of the hospital...not a coincidence! The Tampa police said this has become very popular with identify theft cases. WATCH OUT..go somewhere else or take your chances.
Piss poor excuse for a hospita. – 10-13-2010 All of these facts are documented and true. I just had a most horrible experience at this hospital.. First contact in ER was rude. I walked in with my radiology report from Tower radiology ) from that day) verifying blood clots in my lungs). This is a life threatening crisis, and I did not get treated for 6.5 hours. The Er bed had no pillow. When i asked for one it never came. The Er doctor who was fresh out of school asked me twice why I thought I had blood clots after I showed him the report!!! The ER was filthy!! When they finally sent me to a room in was a semi private room with a poor old gentleman moaning and speaking incoherently. I begged for another room, which i got, next to a mentally ill lady who kept running from her bed which set off the very loud alarm. This went on all night. I got ZERO sleep. I asked the nurses to do something about it and they said no way. By 3 AM there were so many complaints the nurses tied her into a chair and sat her at the nurses station. My heart monitor leads fell off and I was getting twisted in then so I took the monitor off and no none came to ask why for 3.5 hours! I could have had a heart attack and no one would have known. My light colored socks got BLACK from the linoleum floor. My bed had to be removed and a new bed brought up because it was broken in the middle. The "new" bed was very old and noisy. My medications were wrong in the morning and they blamed me for it. I am going to file a formal report against this hospital. The treating hospital doctor told me the hospital is a haven for people with no place to go (homeless) who come in looking for a vacation from the streets. There is no pysch ward so the mentally ill are kept with the physically ill. I demanded to be discharged as i did not feel safe at this sorry excuse of a hospital DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSPITAL!!!!!! It may cost you your life!!
