My father was on ventilator and it was depressing to see him like that.
But we as a family soldiered on and hoped that one day he would get off of it.
Indeed that day was yesterday.
The happiest day of our lives and after years we saw our mother smile.
Gotta hand it to the staff at memorial uni medi care, you guys did this.
We owe you our all and are so happy for all the cooperation.
Thanks!

The director of the ER at MUMC is HORRIBLE because clearly he doesn’t give a SHIT about PATIENTS. The so called triage system is a complete bust- there’s no system people walk in and out as they please and oh if you work here then there’s only time for your relatives and friends here. DISAPPROVE.

You know how scary it is to take a 10 month old baby to the ER? I’ll give you a hint, it aint no picnic. My wife and I have been working out butts off day and night to keep our baby alive. She was born with breathing issues not related to asthma.
But the first time we brought her in we knew things were not going to be easy. At 10 months she started coughing in the middle of the night and when we went to her crib her face became blue. She wasn’t breathing.
We rushed her over here back to her birth place. So glad that the nurses and doctors recognized us and took care of her immediately. Love the enthusiasm and all the help we got from you folks. If it weren’t for you guys…

Can’t tell you how much I hate this hospital. It deserves a -10 rating. Was only here for 10 hours before I asked the doctor to shift me elsewhere. No sanitation, no care for patients, the rooms smell like urine and blood and oh , there’s blood on the floors. They don’t give you toilet paper , the bathrooms are filthy even private ones I wonder how the doctors use them. Just disgusted. Go to St. Joseph’s trust me.

Staff: professional, attentive, sweet people
Cleanliness: on a scale of 1 to 10 I’d rate it 8 (just to clarify I gave my own house a 9).
Willingness to help: 10.
Very polite people who will lead you wherever. I honestly felt like I was in Canada because of how nice everyone around me was. But definitely one of the most stand up hospitals you’ll see in Georgia. That’s right, I’m talking the entire state because this hospital is the ultimate shiiiit

Want to hear a funny story? The new valet parking is so useless they actually lost my keys. When I asked them what they were going to do the guy in charge started sweating his butt off. I ended up ordering two new smartkeys but I swear I’m going back to have it reimbursed from them. Such incompetence.

Have been associated with this hospital for 2 years straight now. Its been a pleasure coming here but somehow on the day I was giving birth a few complications arose out of nowhere. So basically I got pregnant and came to the OB/GYN at memorial university medical center who was my OB for 2 years now. Dr. Singh has been one of my constants through the past year that’s been kind of rocky. So when I got pregnant I knew there was no other place for me to go to.

But while I was 7 months pregnant I fell down and had a blood clot in my leg which at the time the ER at memorial university did not find. Two days later it came up and I had to go back for a test. All happened and then they billed me a crazy amount. I had to go back and forth from the hospital to my house that week and it was very stressful.

First of all because I was in my final trimester but also because they had no right to bill me that amount. After I had it all figured out randomly right before my delivery I got a call from my insurance company saying they would not pay the amount and that the copay I’d paid would get refunded and that I had to pay the whole amount. And then they hung up.

I was shocked. And note that this was only hours before I went into labor. Was thinking of going to the hospital’s billing area that very night but turns out I went there for a completely different reason. Can’t say that this didn’t stress me out the entire time I was there. Stressing out before delivery is not good but I had no option. I was a single mother working two jobs to make ends meet and now a baby was on the way.

I couldn’t pay that on my own. So anyway after giving birth I had to call them up and sort this whole thing out. Turns out it was the hospital’s mistake in the first place and they “apologized”. That was it. No compensation, nothing. Whatever. I’m just glad I don’t have to pay the money and my baby is healthy. But I could do with not being super stressed right before giving birth. It was the hardest 6 hours of my life.
