Sunrise Hospital Las Vegas / The care after my Hysterectomy
I was scheduled for surgery Friday, January 8 2016. We drove in from Pahrump with our 6 year old daughter. I checked in and we were waiting for me to be called when my daughter wanted to find a drinking fountain so her Dad took her and then I was called back. The nurse said where is your ride I said they went to get a drink of water and she rolled her eyes. That pretty much set the tone for the rest of the stay. She had no idea we left the house @7am to be there by 8:30. They started getting me ready and asked about my family, went to the waiting room and brought them back. I get out of surgery and they won't let my daughter back to see me and they don't have a room ready. At 4pm they said they had a room so my daughter and her Dad go upstairs to take my clothes to room 4111. The nurse told them my daughter is not allowed on the floor because it's flu season! All my daughter wanted to do is see if her Mom was ok! There were no signs saying no visitors allowed and other people were visiting. They had to leave my personal items at the nurses desk and they left. When I got to the room 3 nurses came in. I was upset because they wouldn't let my family in. They ignored me and asked me if I wanted a flu Vaccine. I got my flu vaccine and about 30 min later I had a bad headache. I let the nurse know about 2 hours later and she said you have pain medication and I said it's not working and she left. It wasn't until the Doctor came in the next morning when I told him I've had a bad headache since yesterday. He looked at them and asked them why didn't they give me Tylenol. They came in before I left and tried to give me another flu vaccine. The night of my surgery I was experiencing bad anxiety. When the nurse came in I told her and she said "well what do you do for it at home" I told her "I've never had this problem before". She completely ignored me! Due to the type of surgery I had, my last meal was Wednesday two days prior. I didn't get to eat unit Saturday @11am. They said its because they didn't send an order to the kitchen. It wasn't until I got home and Googled 'Hysterectomy recovery' and found that Anxiety was #2 and its common. The nurse could have told me! My stay in the hospital was awful! They didn't care about my recovery or my 6 year old who wanted to just see her Mom. I would never go back or recommend this Hospital to anyone.
