Stanford Hospital & Clinics — lack of compassion of stanford hospital staff
I would have to agree with Mrs. Victim regarding the complete indifference and lack of compassion of Stanford hospital staff. As my father lay dying in the cancer unit, a letter was placed on his food tray ordering him to vacate due to his insurance coverage running out. The hospital was found to be in error and it didn't help that he died just a couple of days later. On another occasion my 4 year old waited with a badly broken arm for over 4 hours in the emergency room then waited another 4 hours in a treatment room for the doctor to finish her leisurely dinner in Woodside (according to staff). My final visit to Stanford involved a suspected detached retina which involved an over zealous intern scratching my eye so badly during the exam that it took the eye almost two years to heal. The indifferent doctor on call proceeded with more painful and blinding eye tests that probably worsened the intern inflicted corneal abrasion. I was found not to have a detached retina but left with a long term eye injury.
Being a bay area resident I should have known better than to risk my family's health at Stanford. It is legendary for it's questionable care and cold blooded medical staff. Patient beware!
