Destroyed my life. No compasion. I was injured in a motor cycle accident. It was the oher underinsured motorists fault. The policy was maxed at $15,000. My hospital bill was more the a quarter million dollars. I was not insured. So it all fell on me. My lawer worked it out to were the county would pay the bill off. But the staff at umc. Put a lien on every cent due to me from insurance co. Leaving me no way to survive. I cant work. Im stuck in a wheel chair and left impotent. I need more surgeries. And physical therapy to properly recover. And I have no income. And I. Losing my place to live because I cant pay rent. One minute I was the owner operater of my own business. Rideing my new harley. Life was good. In the blink of an eye. I lost everything. From a accident I had no fault in. The county will pay there outragous bill. But they chose to put a lien on money I needed to survive. They expect. Out of the $15,000 awarded to me. That $1800.00 is suficiant for me. I used all my savings to pay medical equipment doctor visits etc. Im shocked they can be so heartless to another human being. They basically treated me. To keep me alive. Just to take away any chance of survival. Now my and my families life is reduced to standing in wellfair lines. For survival.
OKAY HOSPITAL FOR L&D – This was my first pregnancy - so I really don't have anything to critique it against. I had to wait an hour and a half to get in to be admitted for my induction. I was scheduled at 9pm got in the room at 10:30pm. I was there for 3 days total. Most of the nurses were nice but a few weren't! THE PROBLEMS: I got stuck 8 times for my epidural (must have been the doc's first time :) He gave me soo much medicine that I got sick and hardly remember my delivery! Everything was fine til then. After delivery they left me in my delivery room - they were suppose to wheel me over to tthe Recovery Room but did not have any room over there. When I awoke after delivery no one would help me to the restroom - heck I didn't even know if I could go to the restroom - I was still all hooked up to all the monitors. NO ONE CAME I kept buzzing them and finally after 45 min. I had to go - couldn't hold it any longer. No Nurses showed up - after waiting an hour and a half and buzzing them 20 some odd times I got out of bed and stood in the hallway til someone would help me, or even tell me where my baby was! They finally wheeled me over to the Recovery Side where everyone has to share their room with another patient! They put a hispanic - NON English speaking woman next to me, which was kinda annoying becuase she kept changing the only TV to Spanish speaking shows only and turned it up and I could NOT communicate with her. Anyways I ended up having to wait FOREVER for pain reliever medication because they failded to give it to me on the Delivery side and had to write a new perscription and so on.... I did NOT get to eat Breakfast OR Lunch because I missed the ordering time becuase they failed to move me ontime. Then when I got my baby the nurses kept waking us both up every hour to feed the baby! I was breast feeding her and they kept feeding her formula - it was SO frustrating! OVERALL IT WAS OKAY. I GOT A HEALTHY BABY AND I SURVIVED THE DELIVERY.
