Most unorganized hosp I've ever seen,been waiting over two hours & still sitting in waiting rm,nurse @ window has horible attitude.tons of people waiting in admitting/pharmacy/radiology and employees are laughing & talking to ea.other about theor personal lives,they are literally getting paid to gosssip to ea. Other things may run smoothly if they actually did their job

Doctor was the worst doctor for my new born that i have actually have talked to. They only want you to stay if you have insurance. If you dont have insurance they will discharge you right away no further questions asked anymore of you feeling. I had to leave my baby at the hospital because doctor would not discharged because stated that his levels of bilirubin were high and they were concern. The lady next to me had her baby with very high bilirubin level and even higher then my baby and they discharged her because she had no insurance. i think that is wrong. I will never go again to this hospital to give birth. I was not treated nice.

I have been in and out of UMC since the early part of 2009. I lived
in the California Bay Area for 18 years and basically only had a
problem with my blood pressure. I relocated to Vegas and BAM!!..
I got ill at every turn from illnesses ranging from skin infections,
nagging coughs, hypertension. In August of 2009 I was diagnosed
with a form of Lymphoma and was in and out of UMC for emergency
treatment for Tachydia (rapid heartbeat)...was suspected of having
a bad heart.....which I went through a surgical procedure only to
find out that my valves and heart was clear. Their analysis was
that I was under too much stress. I was diagnosed the drugs
Hydrochlorothiazide, Losartan and Cozaar for my blood pressure
but guess what people?....it was the MEDS that was making me
have readings of an irregular heartbeat, pains in my chest and
even fluid on my lungs. I went in just a week ago and as soon as
I arrived there was a young woman who immediately attached a
heart monitor to my chest even after I explained that it was not
a heart attack issue. They don't listen to patients and while you
are there expect to be seen by interns who basically use you as
human guinea pigs while they do their best guess routine. I had
4 different analysis while there....First they told me I had a case
of pneumonia, then COPD, then a possible bad heart (again!) and
you received multiple doses of meds that you were only due to
take one time a day. When it is explained to the nurses on duty
you hear the same old same old...well it's the doctor's orders. It
got so bad that I signed myself out of UMC and in truth the ONLY
reason that I use UMC is because I have county insurance and
they are a county hospital. So in summary hear my words....
Check your medications in a prescription pill glossary that is
available at any book store because you may be poisoning
yourself with each dosage that you take. As for UMC, the pharmacy should be competent enough to realize that there is
a potentially dangerous and possibly life threatening med that
they are dispensing to you. I was given 30 units of morphine
when I arrived by ambulance and I've been informed that that
much morphine could have killed me so my next move?...I'm
going to find me a damn good attorney and sue the hell out of
UMC. They need a wake up call to let them know that we need
to see real certified doctors and not interns who are still learning.
Just because a person wears a white coat in a hospital, it does
not make them a doctor. Avoid UMC if you can for instead of
helping you, their "treatment" just might kill you due to the fact
of their ignoring what a patient says. Dispute my words if you
like because one day it just might be your turn to experience
the county hospital.

Our autistic daughter was rushed to the hospital on the 2nd of October and was taken in for emergency Surgery and at they ended up removing her colon. The emergency staff was excelant, the recovery staff was great as well, NICU was great too. She was discharged from NICU after 5 days and moved to a room. After 2 days on the floor I asked the Nurse if she knew when the doctor would remove the chest tube and Cathider so my daughter could start to walk, she was going to check (short version) I guess the doctor assigned to us said he is not the doctor and that another doctor was our doctor so nurse calls him and he is not our doctor either, needless to say the nurse ended up calling the surgen to DC the cathiter and she ended up removing the chest tube as well. Any way we never were followed by the the doctor on the floor at all until we were discharged, he came to the hospital to sign the discharge papers the Nurse told him I had questions but he never came to talk to me.
Considering my daughter was VERY ill and not under the care of the doctor they can be sure they have not heard the last of this.

My Mother has been at UMC all week and I have found the staff to be very professional and caring. She is recieving excellent medical care and we are happy we selected this hospital. The nurses and doctors work very hard and carry a huge workload, every bed looks to be full.

I have lived in Vegas 3 years now and out of the 3 hospitals I have been to here, UMC is my favorite. Yes, the wait is long if you're condition isn't grave. You see, UMC is the only county run hospital in Las Vegas, which means it is the only hospital that will see anyone, regardless of their financial/insurance status. I get straight answers from the UMC staff. Yes, the nurses might get a bit crabby but have you ever seen their work load? Or how about the tons of complaints they get from waiting patients nagging to be seen before the person with a broken hand when all they have is a persistent cough or a skin rash?

Seriously, at least half of the people in that waiting room could go to a regular doctor for their problem, if they had medical coverage. So the waiting room gets filled with a large number of medically indigent people who have no intention of paying their bills, hence why UMC is having financial issues.

I just got home from UMC tonight and while I was waiting for the Dr to come tell me the results of an xray, I overheard one of the nurses speaking with an elderly patient next to me who seemed a bit incoherent. You could tell he was frustrated with her lack of responding and not knowing for sure what was going on or remembering things she said, but he was kind and patient with her. I only saw one nurse with a frown tonight and she did snap at me when I asked he a question, then I let her know I was sorry for asking too much, I know she is busy. She smiled! My Dr had to make some calls on my behalf to find out more information regarding my condition and I overheard him fighting for me, and he didn't even know me other than a name and a face in his ER. But still, he stood up for me like my own Dr would have (my cousin lol) and that tells me people at UMC actually care about the health of their patients.

Before you pile on the complaints about UMC, look a little deeper and you will see for the number of staff they have to deal with the numbers of people they get, I think they do an awesome job and I enjoy finding ways to make their nurses smile while I am there, because everyone else is too busy trying to make them frown!

WAY TO GO UMC, keep up the good work and know that some of us out here love you for the good work you do for so many.

My father was suffering from a hemorrhagic stroke, we took him to the ER (nasty nurses) and he was transferred to Neuro ICU. The staff in Neuro was excellent and went above and beyond the call of duty to explain procedures and results. Once past the ER - staff is caring and professional in the critical care areas.

Outstanding cardiac hospital! Okay, so I'm in Vegas from out of town and start experiencing what I thought was a heart attack. After reading the reviews I chose UMC. Although I had to wade through a "county hospital crowd," they started immediately attending to a cardiac complaint and didn't let me sit and wait to die.

ALL of the nurses, registration persons and physicians were extremely nice and thoughtful. You would have thought I was in a fancy hospital by the treatment! They ultimately decided it was high blood pressure but they had me take every test known to mankind and were EXTREMELY thorough.

The "chest pain center" right inside beside the ER is outstanding. The nurses there were the most caring I've ever seen or experienced. Thanks again to UMC, my trip to Vegas was enjoyable!

I would like to commend everyone involved with the care and treatment of my ex-husband. He had an emergency aortic aneurysm dissection repair on Sept. 1, 2009. He was in CVCU for about 1 week and a regular room the rest of the time. Almost all the nurses he had were GREAT. He has been back for echos, xrays and labwork since then. I can't say enough about the staff there. Thank God and the surgeon, Dr. Maviodres, because he was not given any chance of pulling out of this surgery. Then on Dec. 3, 2009 our daughter, gave birth to her first child. 10 days later we had to take her to UMC because she was having chest pains. She also had a aortic artery occlusion of 99%. The staff was again wonderful to her and some of the nurses in CVCU remembered us and my ex from being there in Sept. God Bless your staff.

My 17 year old daughter was transferred there after going into cardiac arrest, due to a genetic disorder that she suffered from which affects her heart. After being revived by the first hospital, UMC got her, sedated her and she never regained consciousness and subsequently passed away. Three days after her arrival I made a formal complaint about one of the doctors there. 2 hours after that complaint the police and CPS were sent to my house and I learned that the doctor and hospital created a bogus abuse/neglect report in retaliation for my complaint against the doctor and the hosptial. I tried to remove my daughter from that hospital and take her to Sunrise Children's, again, thwarted by the retaliatory behavior from those at UMC. Horrible experience! Disgusting hospital. Not family oriented, nasty bathrooms, no facilities for parents but they want you there 24/7 or else they write stuff down in their little notes about you leaving to, perhaps get some friggin sleep. They SUCK! We are originally from Chicago where the health care is phenomenal and we always say that the letters for UMC stand for "U May never Come out! This time, it was true!

I had outpatient surgery at UMC, as soon as I awke, they were trying to get me up and out. My nurse told me 3 times that i did NOT have to go to the bathroom as it was time for her break. She finally passed me off to another nurse so she could have her break, and i could pee!!. It took less than 5 minutes to give discharge instructions , I am amazed that she could not devote that time. THEN, I had to walk up TWO flights of stairs out to the car after abdominal surgery!!! It was SAD, very SAD. I feel compelled not to pay my bill because the care was so poor, but you know how that goes, LOL!

Never have been to this hospital, but I will tell you this.
It is all of them in Las Vegas.

Run dont walk if you need anything more than treatment for a cold.
There is a long standing saying out here CALL AN AIRLINE NOT AN AMBULANCE.

Long standing joke at UCLA in Calif. "who are we gettting from
Las Vegas today that they botched up on" Wake up Las Vegas
and check all doctors that you go to.

I went for a procedure to UMC on 11/9/05. I have two insurance carriers - Aetna and Medicare. I was satisfied with the surgery but very disappointed with the nursing care. I spoiled myself while under anesthisia and when I woke up the nurses refused to clean me and rushed me out. I discarded this experience for a long time but guess what - today, 7/16/07, I received a bill from UMC for a copayment of close to $400.00. I called the business office and was on hold for 4, read that again, 4 hours. I still do not have an answer.....
It is quite clear to me why UMC is in financial trouble -

UMC Medical Center is a level 1 trauma center and it's the only one that is level 1 in Southern Nevada. They have some of the best doctors and specialists working there. Their emergency department is great and quick. Everyone there is very nice and helpful. The only bad thing is very hard to get in and out because they always have construction going on.

UMC has an excellent trauma center. It is the place that some of the most critical patients in this part of the U.S. are flown to in order to receive care. I have had a few surgeries with this hospital and the staff seems to be attentive to the patients need. The only drawback is that the emergency room is a bit of a nightmare. The wait is extremely long....hours long!

The wait is extremely long....hours long!

This hospital and medical center is very empressive, Besides the hospital ( which includes emergency care , pharmacy, surgery ... day and long term, x ray center , etc. ) There are seperate buildings for any type of medical need. It is also a learning center for the medical students of the University. It is always busy and waits for service can be long or longer depending on the day and what is going on in the city. When refilling a prescription I suggest you call it in. It takes two days for a refill but a 5 hour wait can be tedious.
