Aventura Hospital And Medical Center: "well my husband was admitted from the dialysis center to aventura hospital...it was dec 03/2015. my husband pulse went down all the way to 30. well first of all the nurse they have at aventura dialysis center at that time don't give a damn about the pt. so my husband call me at told me that his not feeling well. and the nurse in that center was not paying attention to the pt. it just happen that i am AMA. so i told them either they call the 911 for my my husband or i will call and send the paramedics to the center. and after 20 minutes i received a call that they are sending my husband in AVENTURA HOSPITAL. because that is the nearest hospital...which i understand. when we get to the ER...OKEY...he was having tachycardia...so they monitored him and after 5 hours they transfer him to 8 floor west side. and they say they gonna monitor him...well okey...they only have one nurse that is good in that floor...first night over there. it was wednesday...his blood pressure was all the way up to 210/120. i told the pct to call the nurse because his bp is really high and his pulse is way up to 130 which i know he is having a hard time because you can tell that his chest is pumping like crazy and he is having sob...THE NURSE SAY..he need to relax...so i told the nurse...CAN YOU PLEASE CALL THE DR AND PLEASE NOTIFY HER...so she can give a the order to give him medication. but nope nothing show up...and THEY ASK ME if i am a NURSE? i told them well what i do for living is not a concern. the doctor that attending him was gonna put him to heparin drift. the first night that he was admitted the DR say you need 'ABLATION" So i say "okey' but before the ablation he need to see the cadiology "first. and she say im gonna put you in heparin drift" i told the dr "okey but still he need to see the cardiology first please" then DR just walk out of the room...then like in one hour there is a nurse was about to put a heparin drift on him. so i told the nurse "he is not gonna get the heparin drift, not until he see the cardiology...even a cardiology didn't even put him on heparin because he need to see first whats going on with him. and that friday the dr was discharging him...and when i get there...his blood pressure was 230/125 with the pulse of 130 he was having a SOB, CHEST PAIN AND POUNDING HEART BEAT..so i refused to take him home. i told them to call the cardiologist please. and he even say HE cant go home like this...and the dr told me that my husband refused the treatment? i told her he didn't refused the treatment...he NEED a echo and to see whats going first then he will go FOR ABLATION. so the echo was order that night. and it shows that he was atrial flutter. that he needed a ablation to prevent it to happen again. and that night those nurses they have in that floor was talking shit about pt. and they mention my husband that too much drama. so i confronted them. THEN THAT MONDAY HE WENT INTO 3 PROCEDURE (CARDIAC CATH, ABLATION AND DIALYSIS) ATLEAST WE KNOW WHY HE NEED THE ABLATION...after the procedure they transfer him to 7 floor telemetry..which the nurse is better than floor 8. but still barely nurse knows things now...they have the title but the they dont have to knowledge HE was discharge the day before his \r\nbirhtday. i told the nurses up there i may not be a rn...i am a RMA,AMA i care for my patient. \r\nand resently 3 of my pt just died in that hospital...i guess you can barely fine a good nurses dr and and nurses now.

West Boca Medical Center: "As a person with a disability, I have never felt discrimination as I did when visiting West Boca Medical Center. A friend of mine was being admitted and did not want to spend the night alone. Her husband had to return home to take care of their children, so I arrived, service dog in tow to spend the night. At first, everyone was very nice with many nurses stopping in to see my dog. She remained in the down position despite the many distractions. Then Daniel came in and asked me what my disability was. Now for those who do notknow, this is illegal. You are not allows to ask a person why they need a service dog. Daniel left and returned asking me about my disability again then asking if I had her service papers. I've never been asked before, but I did show him her service card with registration numbers. He then asked if I had shot records, to which I replied not on me but in my car. He left saying that my service animal might not be able to stay with me. I was becoming stressed by the incident as well as my friend the patient. I told Daniel, that my dog is for my safety and, by law, is allowed to be anywhere I am. Daniel kept pushing and I said I wanted to drop the matter and would file my complaints later. My priority was my friend. Not my own anxiety about being without my service animal or the risk I was taking. \r\n\r\nOn his own, Daniel decided to return with his supervisor, Carol and the ordeal continued. She began to question, asking what my disability was and what the dog does for me. Again illegal. I would like to note that Carol refused to even make eye contact with me. She talked directly to my friend, as if I was invisible instead of sitting to her right. How incredibly RUDE! How dare you treat me with no respect as if I not even another adult! Are people with disabilities not worth your attention Carol?? Carol mentioned on her first visit to the room that "there is no hospital policy when it comes to service dogs" and she would have to call her supervisor. I'm feeling hurt and embarrassed at this point. I tell my friend's husband to just take the dog home with him. Before he can leave, Carol returns and says my service dog and I cannot spend the night. When I inform her that the dog is leaving and that only I was going to stay, she said that won't me a problem. Mind you I was never given a reason why my dog wasn't allowed to stay. She is extremely well behaved and had not moved from her position this whole time. \r\n\r\nSo apparently you are welcome in West Boca medical center as long as you DONT HAVE A DISABILITY!!!!\r\n\r\nI spent the night with my friend, thankfully without incident. I didn't sleep at all afraid I would miss signals now that my dog was not there to help me. I had to\r\nspend three days in bed recovering. My vertigo returned, along with vomiting, blurred vision,and extreme pain. \r\n\r\nMy life absolutely fell apart 2 years ago when I became sick. I lost my job, my relationship, and there was a serious question as to whether I would ever be able to work again. I have struggled horribly with chronic pain, and dangerous symptoms ever since. I am a teacher. It's not just my career but my passion. A passion that has had to take a back seat to this disability. I also taught/assisted in a martial at school. I can no longer train as it is a trigger for me. My academy was my family, a family I can rarely see because I can't drive the long distance most nights.\r\n\r\nMy service dog has been the greatest blessing, but also a my curse. Thanks to her ability to signal\r\nme of impeding attacks I'm able to drive longer distances, though I rarely take the risk unless necessary (such as visiting a friend, who has taken me into her home and family, my second mother, in the hospital). My service dog warns me so I'm better able to prepare, prevent and stay safe. And she is my best friend, never leaving my side even when I collapsed in a park. But having a service animal, it's like a big arrow that tells everyone around me I'm sick. I've struggled to come to terms with my illness, to accept that I'm no longer as strong as I used to be, to understand and accept my loss of independence and freedom. And while I love my service dog like my own child, she's a constant reminder of this struggle. \r\n\r\nTo be treated with no respect, to be treated differently because I'm disabled, frankly it's been my biggest fear. It fills me with such shame. That's what West Boca hospital did to me. Made me ashamed of myself, of my struggle, of my disability. They reminded me I'm less than a person and not worth their attention (and yes, I did call they comment line and have yet to hear back from Sylvia. Apparently I'm really not worth the effort). Their behavior told me I'm not entitled to the same treatment as anyone else because I have a disability. \r\n\r\nI am a woman, a teacher, a loving and caring friend. I am not my disability. I have the right to be treated like everyone else. I have the right to be treated with respect. \r\n\r\n" - Tamara

Aventura Hospital And Medical Center: "To Whom it may concern !\r\nMy name is Agnes Goldberg. \r\nI have been coming regularly in to Aventura Hospital since 2014 November/02. \r\nI have been in the emergency room and stayed admitted over 30 times. I have the urge to tell you a quick story that happened to me in between July 25th 2015 and August 04th 2015. I came in the Aventura Hospital Emergency room scared and frightened crying not able to walk or control my muscles on July 25/2015. It came out I had a Dilantin toxicity and the brain didn't send signals to the muscles and nerves. And that I probably not going to walk or gain control over my muscles. I coul have lost my cool but I didn't. And this is the reason behind it his emai. First of all this is not my first language and if my writing sounds a little strange it's because I am Hungarian and my English is just off. Way off. \r\nOn that day I got a nurse name Kay Charles. Since then I haven't seen her till just an hour ago and I forgot her name. But it think you should know of what a wonderful selection of employees you do have. Not just that she did everything in her power to make sure I got everything I needed so I can focus on the emotions and just make some kind of sense out of it. Everyone was beyond wonderful and kind and understanding and just being there for one human being out of there heart. The staff in radiology Xylyn Dale,and Jonathan and George and Lynn all the nurses and doctors who were there was just kind be and wonderful. But this one nurse Kay Charles was the best nurse and a true friend to a stranger. She stayed with me even her shift was over. She stayed with me till my fiancé got there so I don't have to stay alone. I am a praying woman. I don't bother nobody by asking questions about what they believe. I had no idea she was a praying woman till she heard me praying then joined me with her prayers. I swear to you I was lifted to a better place on that moment. I am truly blessed and grateful that you have an incredible nurse and a wonderful human being in your staff like Kay Charles is. \r\nAfter I had to go upstairs to the sixth floor to stroke unit I was provided the best doctors and nurses. All my needs medically and hygienicly was met beyond better then my expectations. I want to say thank you. Thank you for always making sure I will feel better and hopeful and happier. Thank you for having wonderful people like Kay on your team. May you always have an angel by your side. Because you definitely provided my human Angels. Thank you. \r\nWith sincerity and gratitude. \r\n Agnes Goldberg. \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n1777 Venice Lane #134\r\nMiami Florida 33181\r\n786-600-9688" - Agnes

Palm Bay Hospital: "The ER doctor diagnosed my sister with pneumonia but when she said she can't afford the medication the doctor pretty much said tough luck. The same doctor said the numbness in my hand was do to a pinched nerve in my elbow and sent me home with no tests done at all. Turns out I have a neck injury and need surgery. They don't take the time to properly care for patients. The physicians assistants name is Stephanie." - Mallory

Palms Of Pasadena Hospital: "BEWARE OF UNETHICAL BILLING PRACTICES!\r\nI am a Registered Nurse of 19 years. I work for the Federal Government taking care of our Nations Heros. I was admitted for an infection in my knee. I was placed in a room and received treatment for 6 days as an inpatient. After discharge I was given a bill for $10,000 for a private room that Blue Cross Blue Shield would not cover. I was NEVER informed of any additional charge, I NEVER requested a private room, I NEVER signed anything approving this additional charge nor EVER made aware of it. To add insult to injury, they ONLY had private rooms available. Furthermore, due to my resistant infection, a private room would have been medically necessary. I will NEVER go to this hospital again, nor will they get $10, 000 out of me. They threatened ruin my credit which I have worked very hard to restore after a divorce. " - Scott
