Hospital Care reviews in Spooner

  • F
    Spooner Health System
    They put him in a wing of the hospital away from everyone else and basically, they ignored him. They got him up in the morning, brought him his meals, left him all alone all day, and put him back in bed at night. They didn't give him his pain pills. They told me it hadn't been ordered by the doctor. I told them it had and demanded that they give him his pain pills as he was in terrible pain. He was upset, he was in pain, and he wanted to go home. He was agitated because he has dementia and the doctor and guardian ad litem talked about court and led him to believe that he was being put in jail. Because he was agitated, they gave him Haldol. When we were looking for a nursing home to put him into, we were told by all those that we checked with that they wouldn't even consider a patient who was on Haldol. Basically, Spooner hospital just wanted to give him something to shut him up. They didn't care about him. The social worker for the hospital wanted him out the day after he was placed in protective placement and the social worker for the county told her that she couldn't get him released. The hospital social worker did not like that. As soon as the hearing was over, she called my sister and said they were releasing him the next day. We had nowhere to take him. It was obvious she didn't like him and she didn't like us. This woman does not qualify as a social worker in my opinion, because a social worker is supposed to be there to help people. She consistently made things harder for us, both this time and a previous time a few months earlier. Also, when the nursing homes we were checking into found out about the haldol and that the social worker wanted to get him out of the hospital as quickly as possible, they told us that those were both red flags to them that the patient would be trouble and they wouldn't even consider him. So he had two strikes against him from the get go - this poor excuse for a hospital was doping him up with Haldol so they wouldn't have to mess with him when he got upset and the social worker was trying to get him out of there as quickly as possible. The doctor he saw also gave three different diagnoses in court so it was obvious he didn't know what kind of dementia he had. We signed him into Amery (which Spooner claimed we couldn't do) and when the doctor from Amery spoke to the doctor in Spooner they told my sister it was clear Spooner had no idea what was wrong with him or how to help him and Amery approved his being admitted to their facility to determine the best medication for his condition.
    Spooner made it nearly impossible for us to get a nursing home to accept him by giving him Haldol and by trying to get him out of the hospital practically as soon as he got in. I am still debating whether or not I am going to file a complaint against the social worker for the hospital as she made an extremely difficult situation worse.
    The way they handled things, if I were dieing, I would take a chance that I would survive long enough to drive myself to Rice Lake rather than go to Spooner doctors ever again.
