i had a mild heartattack that turned into a mi accute hearattack in june on father's day, went to wmh, then was flown to St.Mary's in huninton. they did a stent in my heart the next day, which was monday, on wed. i was released without any med's. I went home was doing fine. Then on Mon. i went into another heartattack, took by ambulance to wmh, was sent my ambulance back to St. Mary's hospital in hunington again. Went through a balloon surgery that night, woke up in ICU. when rolled over right leg was hurting. So i removed covers to find my right leg was black. When asked what was wrong i was told i had a hemotobia (i think is how it is spelled) and a fistula. on Sun. was told they were going to put a stent in my right leg, come mon. they said they were gonna see if i could heal on my own. (which adventually i did). I put a lawsuit against this hosp. cause i want to know what caused the second time around. First, was told sugar, when i said how did sugar do that in five days, then was told no plavix, when checking into this was told that wasn't the reason. I have been told about 10 more cases of St. mary's doing this to people. However, noone will stand up and fight with me to stop this nonsense, i have even been told that it is useless to put a case against them cause they have the money and lawyers to fight back. So tell me ppl. what are we suppose to do sit back and let this go on. Something definitely happened to me and i want to know what. I may not win this case but i will let all know what kind of place St. Mary's hospital is. They almost killed me.If you know what i am talking about please speak up. Yes you can believe this is going to the papers and news. Sooner or later i will bring it out in the open. I could care less about money and material things, I just know i have went down hill since this all happened. So pls. anyone who has been done dirty by this hosp. pls respond.

same thing happened to me. I know who angered is and she is telling the truth. The hospital did do something to her, but noone will come across and tell the truth about it for her. She forgot to tell how during the balloon surgery, the doctor put his hands up and said oh my i have made a mistake, and the nurse said it will be ok. they done this woman dirty. I ought to know, because I have a grandmother they did the same way. You go Angered I hope you sock it to them. My family is also checking into this problem. Angered use to be a very go hyper, happy kind of woman, now she barely can do for herself, and by the way she is only 45, and has to have help with simple things. So come on people lets back her up. Speak up if you have had bad experience with this hospital.
oh no

i wouldn't recommend anyone letting their loved ones go to St. Mary's. Especially the CCU. They might have a great cancer center and all that, but if you or your loved one needs cardiac care DON'T go there!

My mom was injured there. she had stints put in her heart, as they were pulling the guide wire out they ripped her main artery Open, when they found it, she was 2pints of blood away from death? WTH?
BUT anyway dear, to make a long story short, You know those papers you sign when you go into have that done? that keeps them from being liable from anything related to the balloon surgery , Hematobias, You name it.. if it was in realtion to the surgery there coverd, Unless you can proove just plain out right neglect, I May not have a case...
If they pull that balloon out of you.. rip ur artery open, you loose 5pints of blood into your leg it sets up clots... they gotta cut that leg off... its coverd in those papers... Crappy eh?
I Hope im wrong for you, But i went through the same thing with my Mom... she never recoverd , was in bed for 3yrs....:( I miss her

I am so sorry for what has happened to you. But on July 11,2007 My mom had a heart attack and they took her to St. Marys and they did a wonderful job with my Mom if not for God and St Marys she wouldnt be here today. But I guess all hospital have there faults and they all can make very bad mistakes and most of them do not want to admit it. All I can say is keep trying
I know

My Father has been in St Marys Several times in the past few years. Once for a heart attack. Each time they treated him and our family well. I have been around the medical field all my adult life and have found that every facility has it's good and bad outcomes. I in no way am trying to minimize the bad experience that some of you have had. I would just like to remind you that all the caregivers are human and humans make misstakes. I have never ran across a Doctor,Nurse,Paramedic, ect that didn't trully care for and want to help the sick and injured. Please pray for them and their patients. May God hold and keep us all.

i agree with most of these things, however, when asked about the right leg that had the fistula etc., they denied doing it, that's what made me angry, i go in ok in the leg come out not ok. the least they can do is admit their wrong. some has had good exp.'s with them and some hasn't. i thank you all for caring. it is a well known fact that my surgery went great then they send me home no med.s and i go into another heartattack, wow now tell me isn't that neglect. we shall find out cause i put a lawsuit against them. forget the money i just want them to tell me what happened, and why they are dening the leg deal. If God hadn't had his hand on me , i would of died. so i give God all the credit not that bunch. no i dont hate them but i am angry, and i just dont want this to happen to another person. thanks ya for letting me speak out. God bless you all.
