There’s no system here- everything happens when they please. I was just so depressed after coming back home from this hospital after leaving my mother in the ICU for some sleep . It’d been two days since I’d rushed her to the hospital because she was having a major heart attack. When she got there we found out that she had a complete heart block and needed urgent action. A pacing wire was suggested to be put in place and I was very nervous for her. She has had heart issues all her life but I didn’t want her to go like this.

So they said that a heart catheterization needed to happen and they scheduled it the following day. I went to work for an hour and got back a few hours before the so called procedure. But I was shocked when they told me that it’d been postponed by a day because the team said they weren’t up for it. Weren’t up for it?! What kind of a hospital even bothers blurting out these kinds of excuses?

So you’re telling me that a patient who’s just had a major heart attack and continues to show signs of failure, you’re going to sit back, relax, and wait for your team to get in some beauty rest? Nuh-uh. This didn’t sit well with me. I called my ex-husband who came in and made a huge scene, accusing them of medical negligence and I’m happy he did, otherwise they would’ve gotten away with it. Disgusting hospital.

Do all receptionists have to be such B-I-T-C-H (s)? This is a genuine question because I really don’t get what they have to be so braggy about? When I asked her for simple directions she pointed to a board that showed the name of doctors and nothing else. Confused I asked her again, maintaining my decorum but clearly this set her off because she got angry and asked me if I could read. Yes, that is exactly how you are supposed to treat people who basically pay your salary. Dear God!

Tallahasse memorial has some of the best employees ever I am honestly a little scared of hospitals and when my family doc told me that I needed surgery I was sweating my balls off but then thankfully he recommended me to a good surgeon a good friend of his who performed the surgery at this hospital and it went just fine, the recovery also was smooth and I was out before I expected which was pleasantly surprising .

Medical wise experience was good can’t speak too much about the hygiene in this hospital was only here for a week and saw a lot of dirt in my own room and the garbage can in my room was filled to the rim for most of the time I was there I guessed why I never saw any cleaning people but whatever it wasn’t my concern . Special thanks to Dr. Ramsey who made this possibly the best medical experience I’ve ever had and hopefully won’t need any more .

A few tips for anyone looking to go to Tallahassee. Spoiler alert: I liked it but it also wasn’t the best hospital I’d been to so weigh your options and preferences. You’re welcome, by the way.
  • I’ve never been to Tallahassee Memorial before but I thought the ambience in general was nice, for a hospital at least. A lot of employees try really hard to make it easier on the patients which I thought was a nice touch. Didn’t find that in Capital Regional, where I used to go before Tallahassee.
  • The service here is faster than other hospitals around. First of all I didn’t realize how fair they play while making patients wait. A regular patient came in after me and the receptionist called my name before. In previous hospitals I’d always ended up waiting for at least half an hour but over here they value your time. If you book an appointment for 5 pm, you see the doctor at 5 pm.
  • Even though the employees are good, the people that come to the hospital can be a little..how do I put this lightly.. shady? I’ve seen people with objects sticking out their eyes come in – not going to lie, wouldn’t mind giving my time slot for those folks. But then there are also some people with the flu or common colds that expect to be seen before everyone else. So it can get a little annoying. But the good news is that the triage system works efficiently here.
  • The parking, cleanliness factor, bedside manners of doctors… everything else that matters most to me were positives. So no complaints from me. But of course it’s not the poshest of hospitals. So if you want that VIP treatment go somewhere else.

The admin team at TMH deserves a round of applause for carrying out the hospital duties so effectively. Without you guys this hospital wouldn’t be such a success.
