    On November 4th at 9:30am I was scheduled for a Colonoscopy. This was a repeat test from February. I am also a person with Parkinson's and a Type 2 Diabetic. Two day prep left me weak. Blood sugar was 76! Preop Nurse the sweet Asian was the only one who cared about me. There was a delay of an hour. Nurse anesthesiologist got my name wrong, twice! He barely acknowledged me.
    surgery. Then recovery.
    a total nightmare! I woke up coughing so hard that I couldn't catch my breath. I was so weak, a constant headache and my ears were on fire!
    I could barely talk and felt like I was dying! "I can't breathe!" Nobody responded.
    I screamed and said, "I CANNOT BREATHE!!"
    If they were trying to kill me, they almost succeeded!
    I am ill with pneumonia and then I found out I had aspirated vomit.
    I will die of natural causes before I ever return!

    Totally a rude and uncompassionate hospital! The doctor in ER last couple of days must have had some personal issues as he was throwing things and gave our son something to drink that should have gone to the older woman in next room--he was putting our family down and the list goes on--it was so unbelievable until my husband blew up at him and demanded an apology and told them his intentions to never come back and to file a complaint. It's a longer story but we are filing a complaint and I am writing letters to the board members. I've spent so much money at that hospital with cancer and having heart attacks! They will not get my money or insurance money any more! We will never go to Holy Family Hospital ever again!!!

    I have a friend who was admitted to holy family psychiatric ward. She was admitted for duel issusses.
    1. Addiction to anti-anxiety medication
    2. Depression

    She was detoxed for 5 days and sent home, with no follow up.
    after 3 days she attempted suicide .
    She was re-admitted to holy family psychiatric ward, there she was evaluated and we were told it was a behaveorial issue and they could not help her.
    She was discharged, and was assigned to Solom Mental heath day program.
    Solom sent her to Holy family emergency dept, where she layed in a bed for 12 hrs with no piilow of blanket. And not person came in until my sister and myself came in.

    Three social worker did not find her a bed until we had to loose our tempers.
    The last social worker told us not to blame her for the other social worker mistakes.
    After 12hrs in ER she was sent Salem Hospital there she was treated for withdrawl and dpression.
    They told us she should of been treated for withdrawl and given a hire dose of depression medication.
    In my opinion Holy family almost killed my friend. God help the people in the psychiatric ward.
    Not only are they not being treated the floor is dirty and unkept.

    It is now 11:23 pm and I just got home. Had grandma rushed to Holy Family in an ambulance she arrived at 2:30 pm and just got a room @ 10:20. Eight hours in an emergency room for a 95 year old woman. Nurse who said she was grandma's nurse, only came in 3 times to take her blood pressure during that 8 hr period. Someone please tell me how much they make (per minute) while a patient lays in an e.r. room. Cause I know that is the only reason she laid there for so long. The tests she did have done only took combined 1.5-2 hrs. Why lay there for the other six???? Along with the other person who commented. NO member of my family will ever, ever, I mean ever step foot in Holy Family again. I agree, something has to be done. Oh, and how true====Rude, and uncompassionate is an understatement.
