The surgery was successful and my daughter is better so that is what matters the most.
Surgery - Waited a few hours in the prep/pre surgery area. Lots of sitting around doing nothing. Surgery happened about an hour and a half later than scheduled. The surgery waiting area is nice. The staff there is wonderful. They are extremely friendly and available to answer any questions. The surgeon met with us in person afterwards and answered all of our questions. We were not allowed to see our daughter in recovery. They had us wait for her to be brought into the room.
Hospital stay - Majority of nurses were great. We have been there before so our first question was - what are her goals in order to be released and we worked toward those goals so we would be there as little time as possible. The only issue we had was with the one nurse that administered the pain medication too fast.
Some doctors will tell you that you if your child takes daily medications, you can bring your own in. One of my daughter's first visits at this hospital they provided her daily medications. When I asked for an itemized bill, her pills were extremely expensive. One pill was $7 per pill at two a day. I pay $25 for a 3 month supply at home and had to pay $28 for two days worth in the hospital. At a future visit, I took her medications in and insisted they log them and give her those and they complied. When she had her surgery this time, they would not agree and I had to have them provide the meds (which were ordered incorrectly).
We were able to be released the following evening after surgery (stayed one night). Overall the stay was ok.- Laurie S.
My daughter was hit in the face by a hard plastic ball and was bleeding profusely from cuts above and below her eye. The ER doc at the Provider name locked. hospital surmised she also had a hyphema (bleeding in the eye) and felt she should be seen by a pediatric ophthalmologist, so he called ahead and made sure a resident was waiting for us downtown. Dr. Provider name locked. met us at the entrance and escorted us upstairs to the Eye Clinic. Note: this was on a weekend, and so the clinic wasn't really open; Dr. Provider name locked. came from his home to help. He confirmed the hyphema diagnosis and, as gently as possible, provided the grim news that my daughter's season was over; the injury was such that reinjury might have permanently damaged her vision. We needed to return to the clinic every day for a while, then less and less often as her eye healed. We saw a number of residents during this period, and all were capable, but Dr. Provider name locked. was so caring and funny it made what might have been an ordeal something almost to look forward to. We even met his family at one of our subsequent weekend visits. And the receptionist at the clinic was also a bright spot ? very cheery, kind and welcoming.- MICHELLE G.
