Four o'clock went to palm springs general hospital for my bleeding hemorrhoid. Filled out my paper work, but was unable to locate the woman behind the counter not minutes after her giving me the paperwork. I began whistling a merry tune until a nearby nurse decided to bring the desk attendant to me. After giving my completed paper work to the woman who had requested it I waited until a nurse Nancy came, and brought me to area ten on the surgery floor. I call it an area and not a room because only a curtain stood in for the fourth wall. In this tenth area I waited until I was seen by a doctor Brendel, who looked upon my enflamed rectum and said I likely had a cut inside my anus which was bleeding. He requested I have a chest and abdominal X-ray done, as well as be given a pain killer and antiseptic, for nausea, injected into my blood stream. He also took blood samples to test my hemogloibin levels. While having the X-rays done another woman entered the room and took more blood for reasons I didn't learn, likely because the drugs had kicked in and made me a little loopy. After returning to area ten I took a nap. When I awoke a new nurse was in charge of me named Juan, he assured me the test results were coming and I should be patient as I was a patient. How clever Juan was, I thought. So I was patient and before I had been at the hospital for several hours. My mother, who had been waiting with me, inquired why I had not seen anyone yet. It seems unbeknownst to Juan the test results had come in, but doctor Brendel had not notified any surgeon that I was in need of surgery. Juan wished that we would wait for a second doctor to arrive and do another exam to determine that I needed surgery a second time. But my mother, girlfriend and I decided we had had enough and left the hospital at eleven thirty in the evening. I was most dissatisfied with my time at palm springs general hospital and will not return there ever again. I would recommend you do not as well :)
GENERAL PUBLIC ATTENTION – Palms Springs General Hospital is the worse.
Do not deserve a star but is a requirement in the review, this hospital is terrible, disgusting attention, both administrative and clinical, gave me tremendous impression, they suck.
Beginning not even have a decent website, no image, is simple, uncreative, minimal, uninformative, looks old, by God, that is to be in the U.S., that mediocrity. What you have on your website you can be sure that it is the care that we provided on site, VOID.
DO NOT GO THERE, DO NOT EVER RECOMMEND THEM.
Horrible ER and Medical Care – This hospital is totally incompetent. My 73 yr old mother went to the ER at 8:30am where she was refused water and food unnecessarily and was sat in a back room waiting for blood work. At 2:30pm they showed up to retake blood because the morning sample was tainted. The ER didn't order the tests she needed and no doctor was available to see her. (the ER doc is useless) At 7:00pm after screaming at them they put her in a room to run an antibiotic IV which she needed. No doctor came to see her and she was not given meds or further treatment during the night. At 10:00am her doctor called from a message the hospital left in her answering machine. I had to take her out of the hospital and run her to a doctor's office to get an order for the ultrasound she needed then run her to a diagnostic center. Her treatment was delayed and the condition worsened. Then they billed for thousands of dollars for meds she never got and a $100 copayment. I went and told the VP that the billing was fraud and the copayment was an insult after the way they mistreated my mother and didn't treat her medical condition. They sent the bill to collection after they told me they would look into the matter and get back to me. THEY NEED TO BE CLOSED DOWN. If you are not critical, don't let rescue take you there. Call a cab and go somewhere else.
What an experience! – I am not th eone always to be writting reviews for any sorts of busineses but this is one that i couldnt stay away from. Recently i was visiting a friend of mine from school who was a patient in this so call hospital. From the time i walked in to the minute i left, i noticed incompetency and lack of care from the lady at the front desk to the security guard who was casually almost half sleep in his guard shack to the doctors and the rest of the staff. i finally found someone who was nice enough to guide me to the right room and then i heard nothing but complaints from my sick friend and his family members. i wouldnt be caught dead in this hospital. one of the worst i can recall compare to even the worst and they consider this to be private!!! shame on the admins and the entire staff and all others who consider themselves to be professional.
Adminstration........ What's That? – Not everyone should get the blame, but Honestly these people have no idea what it is to work for a hospital.... At a recent stay an elderly gentleman was to stay over for a few days, on the following Monday he was to take a test that consisted the elderly man to relocate to a different hospital in the area.. Monday came along the elderly man was transported by amblulance to the different hospital where his treatment was going to be held never did anyone at the hospital (Palm Springs Hospital) informed my grandmother that my grandfather was going to be discharged, my grandmother not knowing left all her belongings there and left with her husband to palmetto hospital. Later on that Monday afternoon I came over to see how my grandfather was doing.. When i got there i walked into his room to find his things bagged up by the assistant nurse I asked around where my grandfather was and I was told he was discharged. How wrongly informed we were.... After everything They happen to also lose my Grandfather's DENTURES... WHAT AN EXPERIENCE... I DONT RECOMMEND THIS HOSPITAL FOR ANY KIND OF STAY...
P.S. FOOD IN THE CAFETERIA IS GREAT! THOSE ARE THE RUMORS...... LETS KEEP IT THAT WAY !
