They make old people wait for too long. Doesn’t help telling them that your parent is over 85 years old they just get more annoyed. For my father’s pneumonia evaluation he had to sit in a chair for 3 hours before seeing a doctor. And h’es someone who cannot sit in the same place for that long without getting cramps. But if he stands his seat goes away. Crazy.

Came to memorial care at Long Beach many months ago when my father needed an angiogram. Back then things were very different here, the people were very welcoming and helpful. My father who was scared to get the procedure done was calmed down with words and not drugs and he recovered fully afterward. It was a good hospital experience not only for him but the entire family.

We each stayed with him one day at a time because we couldn’t all take off time from work for that long a stretch. We bonded well with the employees at the hospital who had gotten to know each one of us on a first name basis and were very compassionate about our family. Two RNs were even in on a lot of our family jokes because they became close to my father.

8 months later here we are at the same hospital only different floor this time. My father had a urinary infection that needed to get checked out and we experienced a very awkward and mean encounter with the doctors and nurses. Not only were they cold and off putting they showed no compassion towards my father. The man was clearly in pain and everytime they had to shove up the tube he would wince in pain and they wouldn’t seem to be affected by it.

A pro tip? Do NOT talk back to them. Even if they are being raging incompetents let them be. I accidently complained to one of the nurses who was being very rough with my father and she gave me the dirtiest glare. She then went on to complain to her superior that I mistreated her sexually. WHAT EVEN.

This opened a can of worms I was not expecting. Can you imagine? While I was at hospital with my father trying to take care of him this kind of issue pops up from nowhere and I was honestly taken by surprise. Asked them for camera footage because I certainly did no such thing. She twisted it around to say that it was all verbal.

Basically that was an extra week and a lawyer hire to get out of that mess. Cannot explain how annoyed I was with this hospital but I let it slide for my father’s sake and he was not showing any signs of progress so I kept my cool. The next day when I was coming back to ths hospital from work he passed away. I blame this shit hole of a hospital for all the bad luck.

To the case managers and the child life specialists at Memorial Care Hospital I just want to extend my heartiest thanks to you guys for making this a super experience for my daughter in law. This was her first delivery and she was nervous but thanks to the great staff at this hospital we had little to worry about. The real work begins after the delivery but again the staff here were so nice and accommodating we didn’t even have to know anything- they did everything behind the scenes and for that I want to thank them. For handling the situation so well.

They will overcharge you for everything. Used a paper cup to drink water? They will charge you $5 for it. Used a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom? They will charge you $10 for it. It’s the darnest thing.
My insurance company calls me up inquiring about the treatment I got here because the hospital billed them an insane amount. They know that the insurance won’t pay them that much but they don’t care because then the poor patient is left with the remaining sum.
And tryst me I got a really big amount to pay. I’d decided to pay 20% copay before I came here but once here I realized they billed $17000 for a surgery!!!
I agree that it was a complicated procedure but still. Insurance didn’t cover more than $6000 so I had to spend the remaining $11000.

I have a shin splint ever since I started working out with the BBG weight loss program. It’s been bugging me a lot so I finaly decided to have a doctor check it out. While the doctor was a nice person I didn’t appreciate having to wait for an hour and a half just to see him. What’s the point of making an appointment if you end up waiting anyway? A very crowded hospital btw
