My mom was in Oak Tree and died there a little over a year ago. They were always kind and considerate to her. They were very caring the day we spent with her while she was dying. I think they are very short staffed and need more help like most every hospital. But I think they try.

Instead of turning right you go left,the side that looks like a morgue. I hated that one,they called me in one day,scared me to death and all it was that they forgot my mom's pain medication {she's got cancer} and she bottomed out. I still say Mt.Vernon is so much nicer,they even have all sorts of activities for the patients and a lot of one on one time. And yes an idiot 'it' is.

This is for everyone that has commented on this thread, and to those that will surely comment in the future: I am an employee at Oak Tree and am very proud of it. I cant imagine working any where else. I would trust any and all employees there to take care of me or my loved ones. I know for a fact that they would be taken care of. Sickness happens. People get infections, sometimes even with the very best treatment. We are not perfect and we are not GOD, but we care about our patients and their families. I don't know of another place where several employees will gather around a dying patient with no family, and sing Amazing Grace, and hold that patients hand as they take their last breath. Oak Tree has some of the best Doctors, Nurses, Aides and administration. I hope I never have to take care of anyone reading this, because if you happen to become one of my patients, that would mean that you are a very sick person. But if you do end up at Oak Tree, you can bet your life you WILL be treated like you are a member of our family.
Lady my wife was a nurse there when it opened and they have been infection but wait until you as a employee get something wrong with you they will not stand behind you trust me I went Thur it and they will lie against you yes they will wait and see,I also thought it was best place to work and I'm a RN but Mr Allen will have Christmas parties at his home you get no bonus or did not use to but suppose to go to their party could tell you much more that would scare you,And I watched a Doctor do something that killed the patient and that is all I will say and yes I'm one of the best nurses they had at least I was told that, Now I have moved on thanks to untrustworthy employees.

There have been so many reported cases of late about BRMC and OTH concerning staph infections that I would venture to say that doctors and nurses are introducing these infectious diseases purposely through unclean medical practices. I know this is quite a bold statement, however one cannot ignore facts, staph and pneumonia are the top two infections that elders get everytime they go to the hospital, and it's not just here, it's nationwide.

It seems like it's really coming to fruition that insurance companies are pushing to kill off the elderly population, literally. Because insurance companies cannot make money off senior citizens, they see no profit margin in it for them.

What craziness! Insurance companies are trying to knock off the seniors???? Are you crazy? Oak Tree is a great hospital and no they don't have infections. They get patients who are brought in with infections, but they don't cause the infection. They treat it because the person already had it when they came. They have to keep track of all the cases of staph outbreaks and if you check the numbers you will see that they have not had any outbreaks of staph or any other kind of infection. Oak Tree Hospital is a great place with people who really care. Some people can't find any good with anything, so they must get on here and post stupid, not even close to the truth things.

It seems that most family members on here are quick to blame the health care staff for causing infections in thier loved ones. That is not always the case. The visitors that care so much for thier family member bring in infections also. How about when you went to the bathroom and didn't wash your hands, or when you were at wal-mart with your hands all over that shopping cart that so many others have touched. MRSA/Staph is everywhere, its not just healthcare workers carrying it around. Did you know that MRSA colonizes? So just maybe if your loved one is turning up MRSA positive in thier sputum, urine, or wound becuase they may have previously been MRSA positive in the past and is now having a "flare" up due to the immunocompromisation they are going through from being ill. Think about that before blaming the staff that is taking care of your loved one.

hey i think the girls that work there are wonderful people that care about there patient i know the aides puts all there heart and sole in to there work. they are very sweet and caring each and everyone of them. and the nurses are very caring to . they put alot of heart and sole in to there work. for people to sit and judge others have alot of room to be putting good hard working people down have never worked in the health care field. and if u have had a problem with the care of ur loved one why didnt u take them home and care for them ur self since u care so much. and by yourself and just see how hard it is. and for the people that are a fraid of infections. most of the people comes in there with infections . it dont mean all infections are just in the hospitals and nursing homes. they come from all over. i have friends and family that work at oak tree. and they everyone have hearts of gold. yes they may get paid for there jobs they do but the deserve alot more than what they get and then some.

First of all, you proved you ARE dumb just by your post. You can't even spell! I have worked at Oaktree. Every patient who comes into Oaktree has all their wounds cultured to see if there is any infection. 95% of the patients with infection have it when they are admitted to Oaktree. All the patients were moved from Oaktree ICU into the old Baptist ICU when the new Baptist ICU opened a couple of months ago. The old Oaktree ICU is now Oaktree TCU (Transitional Care Unit). This was planned from the beginning when Baptist decided to build a new addition with an new ICU. There was nothing mysterious about any of it. MOST of the nurses and aides at Oaktree are very caring and compassionate. Like anywhere else, there a always a few "bad apples".
As for some of the people on Topix, "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."

to MOM and CONCERNED CITIZEN it's always sad to here of a loved one who is sick and dieing and with that ,the blame game. they wouldn't have been there had they not of gotten very sick,now what caused that? isolation not quarantine is what they were in. the difference is to protect them from you,not you from them. also if they do have a infection and so many do ,and will, because of ALL the contact not only with nursing staff ,doctors,but WITH YOU.so many people have poor hygiene.now with them dieing . i worked at brmc and mt vernon,how can you call that a life? yes, some have there witts about them but those who are just there in body.. come on..would you want to be like that? or go on to be with god ..NO PAIN OR SUFFERING???? when people are clinically dead they can't let them lay there and suffer..in body. all that are taken off of ventilator was and is with doctors and families agreeing that that is what's morally right.you have to work in the medical profession to know ,and those who think they know only report what they're told and what they see when they are mad or hurting and don't understand .don't be quick to judge what you don;t understand....

Well shows how smart you are not I was let go because I got Injured on the Job, And they fought me and said it never happened. also one of the add Saw it happen so tell me. And I also had surgery and was out of work for 1 year. So yes it did happen and I could also add a lot more that did happened there but its in the past and will stay there.And by the way I have been working ever since I heeled from my surgery .I am also making forty dollars a hour plus housing,I have been in nursing for 20 years. So please do not judge me because i went Thur what he said I did,And the reason I was did that way was because I filed Workman's comp so watch how you judge something you know nothing about.And by the way I missed no work
