A bunch of screw ups that work at Paradise Valley hospital. Don’t get swept away by that name.. it is ANYTHING but paradise like. My sister got pregnant with her ex boyfriend’s child and decided she wanted to raise it by herself. She dragged me a few times to Paradise Valley, the place she’d chosen her OB to deliver the baby.

It wasn’t the greatest place but it wasn’t bad either. The first time I remember one of the nurses barging into the room while the OB was taking the sonogram. Which seemed rude she didn’t even apologize before leaving. The OB didn’t apologize for her either.

When she needed to get checkups done and had to take her clothes off there was no privacy at all. I was very weirded out by this. But none of this mattered because the OB was a true godsend. But then after 6 months of being pregnant she fell sick so I took her to paradise valley. When she was asleep one of the dumbass student doctors gave her an ace inhibitor

And we found out later that that could’ve killed the baby!! My sister is a very calm person but not me. I yelled at them for hours and they apologized because they didn’t want to get sued. So typical. Hate such hospitals and we’re getting her a new place to give birth at.

The staff in er room is just ahhhh!!! So freaking good. Especially the nurses. And then surgeons. And then doctors in that exact order lol. The RNs were always on their toes making sure the patients weren’t uncomfortable. Very appreciative. House supervisors you also deserve a huge round of applause.

Kudos to all the staff members at this hospital it really does feel like paradise.. well atleast by hospital standards..
Special kudos to nurse Mary and nurse Samantha for being so sweet and affectionate towards me.
They were the only two nurses who constantly asked me if I needed something, brought me my meals on time and always ran towards me when I pressed the call button. Without any delay.

Have nothing against this hospital. They’ve been good to my husband and I since day 1. I remember 2 years ago when my husband had to have surgery and Paradise Valley was the only reliable hospital in the vicinity. It was tough but we got through it especially with the help of paradise valley people. But the fact that in two years it’s barely undergone any changes at all, the fact that I still have to wait in line for 2-3 hours at least to see a doctor, the fact that most NPs and PAs are all you get to see on some weekends because the doctors are not in.. it shows that it hasn’t grown per se.

There are so many people who come to this hospital from far away because of the good reviews it has. But honestly I don’t know how much longer I can keep coming here. Sure it’s the closest hospital for us, we’ve had some tough times here and made good friends. Again this has nothing to do with the hospital or the people working in it. Just the people who are supposed to hire more help when the business expands or becomes successful. The other day I saw an infant being carried by her mother- the mother bawling to get the child looked at but they couldn’t do anything.

The receptionist is the nicest person I’ve ever met but her hands were tied in the matter. All the ER rooms were full and there were only so many doctors/PAs/NPs in that day so they asked the mother to wait. I went in and got out before they looked at the child which I thought was very rude. I said nothing though which I regret to this day. But I got my bad karma when day before yesterday I came here after an old wound opened up and blood was gushing out. Had to wait for 5 hours before it was stitched back up and I was given the green signal to go back home.Karma really does exist y’all.

Was put in the worst possible pain for 2 days straight while at this hospital. So much I saw and learnt about hospital lives but MAN it is not worth to get into the medical field. Also I hate this hospital for screwing up my medical records. Claimed I didn’t have a heart episode even though I needed that for work. Had to go back and forth to get it mended, not worth the effort.
