As someone who personally cannot stand hospitals, I can say that LMH was one of the better experiences I’ve had. Ever since my 11 year old died of Cancer, I haven’t set foot in a hospital. But the fact that they took really good care of her while she was still alive is one of the reasons why I recommend it even today to all my friends. Also that the doctors are very professional and approachable- that’s the second reason. Everything is very clean, the hospital food is average… So there you go.

Not sure this is one of the more posh hospitals, so I’d watch out if you’re expecting 5 star treatment. Of course, the doctors here are amazing and don’t need any recommendation because they are amazing.

After my tedious surgery, they asked me to recover in one of their suites. I stayed back for 2 days and had my own private room which was very spacious. Apparently all patients in this wing had their own, spacious rooms like mine. The nurses who helped me recover were so sweet. They were phenomenal in that they didn’t randomly wake me up to take my vitals or anything. Always respected my personal space, their bed side manners were amazing. They also always ensured that I was comfortable, even if that meant shifting my pillow here and there. Never received this kind of care anywhere, even at home. Loved Lee Memorial.

At the risk of sounding like a complete buzzkill, I’m going to say, “Do not go to Lee Memorial.” Trust me, I have good evidence to back my claims, but I guess it’s not the worst hospital in Fort Myers.

So let me start with the one positive aspect I found in this hospital (that’s right, everything else is negative). I thought that there were two nice nurses, even though they indulged in the occasional bitching session with the other catty nurses, they were nice while dealing with me. Other than that, there is nothing good I have to say about this hospital.

I’ve been here a little over 2 weeks to get a medical procedure done after my PCP recommended this hospital. He was out of town for a month so I knew I didn’t have much else of an option. I obliged. But now I’m thinking I should’ve done my own research before agreeing. Anyway, now on to the negatives.

First of all, there is a total lack of sympathy and compassion towards patients. Every one knows that patients are people who are ailing. So that means sympathy and compassion are supposed to be the first thing patients are thrown with from the hospital and its staff members. But this is hardly the case at Lee Memorial. The first thing they do is ask for your insurance and pretend like they don’t see just how much you’re suffering. We aren’t saying don’t ask for our insurance, just that there’s a way to present yourself- a decorum to be maintained when you work at the hospital.

Second of all, there seems to be very less communication going on between the medical staff. The few nurses that were apparently assigned to check up on me were perpetually confused. Like they had no idea what was going on themselves, one person would come check my vitals and the next one would come 15 minutes later and do the same.

When I would tell them that a nurse just came in and took my vitals, she would shoot me a dirty glare. Then later on she would come back and change my IV. Then the first nurse would come back and ask me who changed the IV. It’s like I had nothing better to do than get caught between this hissy fit between the two nurses. Was very annoyed.

Last of all, the food is unbearably bad. It was impossible to put it in my mouth, let alone swallow it down. When I recommended that I buy something else from outside, they refused, saying that could be harmful for my medication. So I was forced to eat that tray table food that was definitely non ingestible. I think this review is more than enough to conclude the night mare of a hospital visit this was. Shall never forget how much it scarred me.

I don’t think the orthopedic department is that great. One of my friends got knee surgery done here and was raving about it, so I checked it out when I had some trouble with my ankle. The tests are done fast and efficiently, but the surgery was very painful. The CNAs, nurses, techies, surgeons, everyone else were very sweet but I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone I love.
