My mom had surgical complications and was life flighted to Mercy. They left her in ER for 2 hours before taking her to ICU. It took 13 hours to get an MRI. They couldn't find anything by that time, so they were sending her home 2 days later. The day I went to pick her up, there were 4 people (a dr, an intern, & 2 nurses), sitting on their asses in her room staring at her like she was a science project and my mom was having a partial seizure. It had been going on for 4 hours and NOONE called a family member. I was told they were waiting for ICU to treat her. The woman was IN THE HOSPITAL and it took 4 hours to go 3 floors to ICU.

Once she got there, the nurses there were TERRIBLE! They would come and pick and gag her while they were suctioning her vent when she was asleep and never tell her what they were doing. One day, in a 7 hour stretch of time, the nurse was in her room twice.....patients should be turned every 2 hours, she was NEVER turned every 2 hours. It got to the point where I had to tell them (when I could find them) she needs turned so I'm going to go eat, make a phone call, etc so you can do that. They sedated her for any and every probem she had...whatever ailes you, they will give you Adavan. Some of them were ignoring doctor orders on her blood pressure perimeters, telling me it could go to 180! When they couldn't control it , they would just raise her limit to make it easier for them. It started at 120, then 140, and when they couldn't keep it there, they allowed her to go to 160 (stage 2 hypertension). One day the machine was reading her blood pressure to be low so they gave her a TON of fluids to bring it up. The next day they put an line in to read it more accuratly, her bp was 180!

Aside from them not being able to control her pressure, she was doing well. The day they had decided to move her to a rehab facility, she was having problems breathing and blood pressure, heart rate problems, and INSTEAD of figuring out why, (the nurse was more interested in flirting with someone in street clothes standing at a nurse's computer), they kept her sedated for 5 hours and released her anyway. I asked 3 different people to speak to a doctor THREE times, I was told he knew I wanted to speak with him, he never spoke to me. It turns out she was going into congestive heart failure, (caused by fluids and uncontrolled blood pressure) and they released her. Immediately prir to going to Mercy, she was told her heart muscles were strong but the ICU could never gether blood pressure under control. Nice job ICU!

My dad spent quite a bit at UPMC in Pittsburgh Pa. He had open heart surgery here and the staff was wonderful. The nurses he had were just the sweetest bunch of people I have ever met. They were always there when we needed something and when the time came that we had to let me dad pass, they gave us the time to grieve. The nurses were very informative with funeral directors as we are not from this area. Great place to be as they really take care of the patients and family.
