April 1st: My girlfriend met with an accident 7 months ago. It was so scary. They brought her to memorial and I came there directly. Didn’t hear from the doctors for hours. A week later they told me she was finally showing progress and then she awoke. But she was having trouble placing faces.. including mine. This is not an April fool’s prank or the storyline of The Vow this was real life.

If it wasn’t for the great staff at memorial I don’t think we could’ve nursed her back to her old self. Every day they made sure to check up on her, all 5 of them- nurses and doctors. Her rehab happened slowly but successfully. In less than 5 months post, she was able to walk slowly. Which we thought would never happen her legs were shattered. One of the best hospitals because they gave me my beau back to me. Owe them so much.

The er waiting room is dreadful
The last time I was here they made me wait for 5 hours in total even though my girlfriend was having an urgent surgical procedure.
Before she actually got inside they made her sit on a wheelchair outside in the waiting room with me.
The whole time she was just sobbing softly because of how much pain she was under.
Other than that no complains.
They are good at their job.
Surgery was fine.

Charge nurses can learn to be a little nicer to patients. Won’t kill you to smile sometimes and make small talk during procedurs so it’s not awkward for patients. St. Joe is a better hospital in the vicinity where nurses and doctors don’t treat you like a dead body, no interaction unless absolutely necessary. What kind of place is this.

Inept doctor. He took 2 hours to diagnose me and it was wrong. Went to another hospital to get a second opinion and found out then. Was very annoyed. Because the entire thing was just horrible. South Bend’s memorial hospital is not cut out to be a memorial hospital. Memorial hospitals all across the country are well maintained, have good, reliable doctors who know what they’re doing. Almost like South bend just didn’t have any doctors so they picked some random guy off the street and that was that. Sigh.

But it’s not that.. as a patient you don’t feel comfortable here. For starters the place is dirty. The floors are white so even the smallest impurity and it’s seen. I know because my floors are marble too. But the dirt here is more apparent than normal. Because you find blood stains, sometimes black stains (don’t even want to know what that is) and when I went there there was this one wall that looked infected almost. I talked to the staff about the hospital’s aesthetic appeal and they laughed in my face. Saying their budget did not cover the “Aesthetic appeal to visitors” so I should just let it go. So apparently they’re not big on suggestions.

Apart from that some of the staff are rude. Wouldn’t say all nurses are rude but the night shift nurses and one morning shift nurse were disrespectful to me and didn’t respect my boundaries. When I was in the bathroom they were in my room, two of them were checking out my system and murmuring something. By the time I reentered the room they preteneded like nothing shady was going on and left the room. I was very annoyed the entire time I was here. Bathrooms first of all are so dirty here doesn’t look like it gets cleaned in days which is not acceptable. Some rooms have trash on the floor luckily not mine. Soap dispensers are open sometimes. Just.. all in all not the kidn of place I’d come back to. Especially since I figured out they were misdiagnosing me to begin with. Sigh.

Staff was disappointing. My sister has a PhD so when she tried asking them questions about my treatment they thought she was “honing in on them”. Then the doctor came in and was condescending to her, being disrespectful to her saying he didn’t need help from anyone else he had his own PhD. That wasn’t even the point of the conversation. The nurses then treated me rudely for the entirety of my stay. Just because of that one incident. How is that fair?

This facility has a lot of overworked staff you can see it all the time they’re either yawning or dozing off in a room not sure if that’s a good thing or bad because the hospital is crowded all the time so they need a lot of man power. The physician and nursing team in the ed was fabulous though. Very timely, efficient and will make you feel comfortable. Surprised, to say the least.
