This hospital bullies patients. Especially patients with no money. I have been paying off a monthly amount for 5 months now because 5 months ago they billed me an unbelievable ER charge and I had to take out a payment plan specifically for this. Now after 5 months it seems they are “looking into it” and turning me over to their hospital attorney. So are they heartless monsters who only care about money- absolutely. You’ll rue the day you ever come to this hospital so keep your distance.

Memorial hospital west is the best place to give birth at.
My wife is currently recovering from her birthing but has only good things to say about the experience.
Her last delivery was at Manatee Memorial and it was not so good.
The nurses were very rude to her and her OBGYN kept yelling at her when she refused to… well, push.
But this hospital created a very safe environment, not just for her but for myself and baby Luna as well.
Post delivery they were very gentle with Luna and helped my wife with lactation.
Recommend to all.

You wait for 2 hours to see doctor. You see doctor and get some over the counter medication suggestion. You go back and same pain is there. You go to other hospital. End of story. Moral: memorial hospital west is worst.

The memorial branch has always been loyal to me and my family. Since I was a little girl we’d been moving around all over the country but one thing that remained constant was going to memorial hospitals. Weirdly enough we’ve never had a single bad experience. You are guaranteed one thing whichever memorial branch you go to: the quality of health care does not depreciate at any point. They cater to you and your family like no other hospital and makes sure you’re the most comfortable you could possibly be.

And this is not limited to the patients by the way. Very sweet people who do not value money over everything else. Soemthhing you’ll find very common in most hospitals in America. But not Memorial. If you have questions to ask write them all down. Be it the doctors or nurses, they will take out the time to personally answer each and every question you have. In fact one of my questions was very science related and didn’t have anything to do with my brother’s fracture and yet the doctor took me to a different department just to show it to me live.

The administration team, doctors, surgeons, nurses- all are worthless cowards who hide behind the hospital’s name. Don’t have the balls to admit they made a mistake but claim to take everything up in court. My cousin passed away here and I KNOW it’s because they were negligent to her needs. Gonna sue their asses so hard..

The ER doctor refused to do his due diligence when it came to informing my family about my father’s condition. He’d had a stroke hours ago and we brought him in at Memorial West and it took him an hour to get his own room and now that he’s finally in no one is telling us what’s going on. It’s been hours and we are all on edge since it’s 4 am but that is no excuse to keep family in the dark about what’s going on with the patient.

At first the nurses told us that he was being stabilized and that it would take a few hours before they could say anything. After two hours I went back to the nurse who said she was not authorized to say anything about the condition and told me to ask the doctor. When I approached him he seemed pissy and said it was too soon to say anything but that they were trying.

so what they didn’t tell us was that they were thinking of transferring him to another hospital because they lacked the space or technology (still not sure which one) and clearly my father was in a critical state. I fail to see how that is a decision where you don’t inform the family. We are the ones that brought him in after all.

Apparently the head surgeon who the doctor was hoping to get in touch with from the other hospital was not in..which was why there was a delay in the transfer. Finally after 2 hours of running around frantically and asking anyone to give us an update he told us that they are considering moving him to Gulf Coast. I was so angry but I kept my cool because my father was in a critical condition and they were his doctors.

Didn’t want him getting treated badly on account of my bad behavior. But sure enough during the transfer my father passed. They claimed he went peacefully, he was not suffocating or anything. But I still hold Memorial west accountable because they made him wait. Had they just taken him to Gulf Coast he’d still be alive today.
