Cape Coral Hospital: "Lee health discriminates against nonverbal patients!!! My son's patient rights and civil rights are being violated currently at Cape Coral hospital since 10/1/2021. Because he is incapacitated and nonverbal, they are ignoring patient rights. They are not communicating with me on medications being administered, procedures being done, inducing into a coma etc.. They are ignoring my rights to speak for him as a legal guardian. The hospital just simply does not recognize a legal guardian or non verbal in patient rights. Their excuse is because he is incapacitated, they do not need too. And because they are not used to families being involved overlooked, sorry...He is currently hospitalized and had put him in an induced coma without explanation to me until after the fact. It was NOT a life or death situation. When I arrived at the hospital the doctor told me when I asked a medical question "not to worry about it they are handling it" . I have over and over asked them to recognize my son's patient rights and my rights as his legal guardian and it is just ignored. I have had meetings with the hospital addressing this and it has continued to happen at at least 7 hospitalizations over the last 10 months. I feel absolutely helpless and feel as if we have absolutely no rights because my son's disability. Update: another visit it will not allow me to post another review so I’m gonna add to this one… tonight I walked into my sons room. His trach was hanging out. I Then the nurse tried to peg it on me saying that I took it out …because she screwed up. They did not have a back up trach and the Respiratory Therapist just put back in the dirty one which could cause an infection. Then the floor supervisor gets on a power trip trying to tell me that I can’t stay and I’m gonna legal guardian. Then she got security. I mean seriously do you think this intimidations factor works out well. It doesn’t it only adds fuel to the fire and when you guys screw up you need to own up to it instead of trying to pin on someone else and try to re-direct the attention of what is actually happening wrong on their part. This is stuff you can’t make up and this hospital will pay one day." - Jocelyn

Westside Regional Medical Center: "My wife was bought to emergency around 8:00p.m. It took a while for services to take place. It is now 3:00a.m. It is extremely difficult to sit and watch people who came in after my wife receive service and leave. Especially when you’ve already spoken with the doctor and the decision is admit. There should be better communication between staff and patient. Someone should be able to provide those waiting with a status of where they are in the process. It is understandable that things maybe busy, however, if the communication were better it would make a difference. It is very disheartening when the staff you have spoken with can look you in your eye and not say anything to you further. This can be better. There was more than enough staff available from the arrival time until now. It’s almost 4:00 am. This shouldn’t be. Not that this will matter, but thank you for allowing the opportunity to voice the experience." - Meredith

Flagler Hospital: "Worst hospital and ER in a 200 mile radius. ED was disgusting, 3hr wait to just gwt triage. Fast tacked closed ,probably due to lack of funding. Executives worry more about looks of hospital, then actually quality of care given to patients. MVA patient from 8-8-22 do better with a 5 hrs wait time. Prioritize patients, ie guy who's eyes had a chemical burk waited 6 to even be seen.." - Minorican

Lakeland Regional Medical Center: "Waited for four hours and never was checked on by a nurse or doctor just one emt took my bp which was 192/118 and no actin was taken I sat over four hours waiting and nobody checked on me or my heart in any way shape or form. Worst er experience I’ve f my life will never go back for care there. People were sleeping in benches and in old care rooms outfitted with chairs the old waiting area and care areas are gone it is astoundingly horrid and nightmarishly reminiscent of the care level given in the 1600s daily plagues. The one charge nurses available answers no questions only tells you you’re on a long list still waiting to be seen by the doctor. Never been in any er where staff waits for some cruel fictitious doctor to trollio along. We waited from 9:20 on until after 2am. They moved all the old setup around and it is a horrible nightmare do not go there find another facility for your own health safety if you have a choice. I don’t know what changes or who took it over but it is currently horrific and cannot recommend anyone affiliated with such a scene who hasn’t reported it to the medical board for immediate remedial action. I’m a former nursing professional and that is not supposed to occur in modern US healthcare we most have some barbaric influencers overruling nursing standards and patient care ethics and laws to even exist that way. Inexcusable. Deadly in fact when someone has a bp that high for that length of time. Inexcusable for modern healthcare. " - Anonymous

Shands Hospital At The University Of Florida: "It’s been 9 hours and I have yet to be seen. Some patients have been here even longer. I have a chemical burn to my eye which has gotten worse the 9 hours and still waiting. ER staff have been friendly and doing the best they can but behind these doors who knows what is going on but this is beyond unacceptable " - Bernadette
