Shithole of a hospital. The way they treated a pregnant woman who is 2 weeks remaining was just awful. My best friend, Shelley is 42 and when she got pregnant she thought it was the happiest day of her life but it was a very complicated pregnancy. A lot of issues and she was always running back and forth from hospital to home because of all the appointments she had.

She shifted three hospitals before the doctors at Mercy were nice enough to take her very complicated pregnancy on and they made appointments for EVERYTHING. In fact ithink she went in every other week. Towards the end it became almost every other day because she started feeling a lot of pressure in her uterus and it wasn’t just gas. Funnily enough one day I told her that I’d take her to Palos community for a change and you won’t believe- apparently she had developed a clot in her uterus- something Mercy should’ve caught much before because she kept going there.

This was unacceptable. We went back to Mercy and fought the doctors telling them they risked her pregnancy even more by doing this. To that the doctors simply said that it wasn’t going to affect the baby so we should just let it go. Can you believe that? This coming from a doctor with over 25 years of experience. Guess some people never learn..

The maternity ward at mercy is so pumped.! Don’t judge me but I liked the recovery rooms so much I stayed an extra day or two because the beds were so comfortable. Comfier than my shitty mattress at home now I’ve got to replace that (lol). But they did such an amazing job with my precious Nemo who came out the size of a cockroach and had to be put under observation in the NICU, mercy handled it very well. Thank you for your efforts. You rock.

Not a big fan of dermatologists but when I came back from Mexico I got the worst rash ever. It was itching on the first day but on the second it’d spread into this huge, red blotch on my back and it had tiny boils on it. I wasn’t sure if it was a spider bite or what but I needed to have it tested. My doctor recommended me to this dermatologist at Mercy and I was reluctant to go at first but went anyway. He was a horrible little man who misdiagnosed me and the rash got bigger and angrier. Had to go somewhere else. I recommend you do too.

Do not recommend labor unit at this hospital not even one bit because they take advantage of patients and I was sexually harassed by mine – had to run out of there because of how afraid I was. From the beginning I kept getting hints from this male nurse who was clearly into me. But I made it clear that it was never going to happen. But just two days ago when I went back he was eyeing me like a piece of candy during one of my tests. YUCK.

Everything about Rockford mercy health is great- no complaints, only one suggestion but I submitted that to the hospital already. Looking forward to seeing their response to it.

My mother dragged me along with her for her appointment and I needed to pass time. There was no wifi even though the claim there is- that day it was down it seems. So I went to the cafeteria. It wasn’t half bad. The food here is decent. But I won’t give this hospital a single star because of how they treat patients here, like they don’t matter, like they can be pushed around until they break. I was waiting in the waiting area and I saw a young mother come in with her bawling baby and the receptionist wouldn’t entertain her. I’m guessing she was either poor or had no insurance but what kind of hospital does that?

Dr. Fideler is by far the best orthopedic doc I’ve come across in my life, he’s just got this way about him that makes all patients satisfied with his service. Polite, to the point, and doesn’t engage in chit chat like a lot of other doctors at Mercy Health- which I appreciate. Really happy to have met him.
