Florida Hospital Tampa: "ER filled with possible covid patients and OBGYN sending in their patients for wellness checks. How smart is that??
Wait way too long for a room because of staffing not because of covid. Can not move from ER into the hospital rooms because they are short staffed. There were plenty of empty rooms but no nurses. So patients tie up an ER room for hours waiting for staffing so they can be moved into the hospital.
This hospital used to be so good but since it became "Advent" it is filled with sub par staffing. ER staff is great but they are separate from hospital. Hospital is dirty with little to no housekeeping, broken plumbing, yellow stained pillow (Yuck) protect your life and go elsewhere."

Florida Hospital Tampa: "04/28/20 - Since AdventHealth Tampa closed its doors to friends and family on March 23, 2020, nursing staff has become increasingly neglectful and apathetic towards both patients and their families. Calls to managers, supervisors, directors and the executive team to report concerns that range from charting errors to borderline abuse fall on deaf ears.

In March, family members complied with the facility's request to leave with the promise that measures were being taken by executives to ensure that lines of communication would be established and remain open. Promises that technology such as laptops and tablets would be placed in each patient's room to facilitate contact with those left behind were simply lies nursing managers like Brian on 3 South used to reduce conflict with distraught family members.

It's been six weeks since I was forced to leave the person that I love most in the world to the care of a staff that lacks both empathy and integrity. Six weeks of worry, fear and anxiety. Six weeks of stress-filled days and sleepless nights. Six weeks since I've been able to see, touch or comfort the man who has been my husband for 30 years. Six weeks of dealing with nurses who refuse to provide any information, withhold information, refuse patient contact and refuse access to physicians.

I'm also saddened by the number of passive-aggressive behaviors exhibited by the staff on 3 North. My husband has been unable to communicate well for four of the past six weeks but is now able to speak on the phone and even facetime (Praise God!). But this communication is now being prevented by nurses like Candace who take it upon themselves to mute and even disconnect my calls.

I know that not all staff at AdventHealth Tampa are cut from the same cloth. Nurses like Emily, Hunter and Steven and techs like Tiffany, Caroline and MiMi are wonderful, kind, compassionate human beings who truly understand that patient care includes family care. They understand that the healing process is complicated and transcends beyond the physical. They understand that family provides a connection, a strong emotional bond, that enhances and supports well-being.

There are signs along the hospital entrance proudly proclaiming that "Hero's Work Here" but many of those employed here. Hero's don't neglect or harm the vulnerable. Hero's don't lie. Hero's don't torment family members who are doing their best to advocate for their loved one. Hero's at AdventHealth? I think not!!

In fact, patients and their families might be better served if the staff taking employee temperatures prior to admission checked for compassion instead of fever.

Shame on you Terry Shaw. As the CEO of AdventHealth, these passive-aggressive behaviors are a direct reflection on you. As a longtime manager, I know that staff behaviors, both good and bad, are a direct reflection of those in charge. Front-line staff display the values adopted and promoted by executives through their actions. Shame on you AdventHealth. Shame on you Terry Shaw. Shame on all of you."
