has anyone else had a problem with the hospital?by this i mean i had to stay with my daughter up there on the second floor for like 4 days and it was like the 3rd time ive had to do it and for some reason they were asses to me this time they made her sit there for 4 days just about with hardley any food they ran 1 test on her in 4 days and had her hooked to a IV and would not let me take her out to goto poplarbuff they..

they asked me why i wanted to take her out of there and i told them because she was sittin up there not able to eat ANYTHING and losein weight and they werent doin anything to her or for her and i thought that i needed to take her some where that they can and would.. well they told me that the dr didnt want her to go and if i tried to take her out of there they would have me for kidnappin..so i have a question for yall

if you feel like the hospital isnt doin anything for your child or isnt doing enought for your child do you have the right to remove you child from that place of business??

A question I'd refer to my attorney. No, not to sue, just to make sure I'm within my rights.

You do have the right. You may have to sign out Against Medical Advice and they are required to report you to DFS but when the Pediatricain made rounds he/she should've been discussing the course of treatment with you. If after discussing your concerns with them you still want to take your child somewhere else you do have that right. I don't know what was wrong with your child so I can't comment on that part of it. But always talk with the Doctor or the Nurses to find out why things are being done the way or are.

I have friends and family that work at the hospital, but SOME (not all) of the people that work there are rude. I was in there the other day and the lady at the registration desk wasn't real friendly. I mean she wasn't really rude, just not friendly. I felt like I was interrupting her time to talk to the other ladies there. Then, I went to another part of the hospital and had to wait for 10-15 minutes for someone to come to that front desk. I just feel that the people that work at the desks need to be friendly and try to make their patients feel important.

There should've been a Dr on call making rounds in the hospital even on the weekend. I don't blame you one bit for wanting to take her else where under those conditions being told you'll have to wait until Monday. If it were me, I would call administration TODAY and tell them what you just told me because it is NOT kidnapping to want to take your child to seek healthcare elsewhere. You would just have to sign out against medical advice. They are required to report you to DFS but DFS will find nothing wrong with your actions once you explain that you were seeking healthcare else where as you felt your child was not being adequatley treated. Do you know remember what Nurse or who told you that it was considered kidnapping?If you do you need to report that person to Administration because that person is highly misinformed or using that as a scare tactic but that person needs to be straightened out. Sorry you had to go through such a rough time. That sucks. Lets us know what administration has to say. Good Luck!

well i did go to administration on monday monring and she said that it was not their problem of course i had a list of things to complain about to i went to her office and told her that i went outside to smoke WHILE she was asleep and when i came back there was a hot tray of food that had a bowl of gravy on it and she was in the bed running around with a meatle fork and spoon..and she said well thats not my fault the nurses have a job to do and watchin your kid is not it and then i told her that the nurses were very rude to me and she said that they wont stand for that and then i told her about how long i had to wait on the things i asked for and she just looked at me and I THINK the ladys name was mona not sure ..and they did get cps in on me and she told me the same thing the dr..said and that was it was my fault and they all think that im just poppin a bottle in her mouth when she crys...well ive got a list now of what she eats when she eats it and when she pukes it back up just to prove to them all that i DO feed her table food and she still gets sick ..and when the dr. came in on monday the cps women came in with him..and they both stood there tellin me its all me and theres not other reason for her to do this and that the only thing left to do is IF i was feedin her table food and shes still gettin sick is to go to a GI dr.. and then he dischargered her i think the only reason he done that is because he didnt want the cops called cuz they said they can only hold her there if they have a court order and they didnt..

I wouldn't put my dog in Kennett's hosp! I'd love to view their record on deaths via E.R. They're rude, ignorant and just lazy....I have filed complaints!

It seems you also have a difficult relationship with the pediatrician. Is this doctor your child's regular doctor? Why does he not have confidence in your care of your child? How old of a child are we talking?

sorry but something just doesn't sound quite right with this story and I can't ever imagine administration telling a patient or their family that it's not their problem...hmmmmmmmmmm

i agree. I believe most other readers are seeing the same thing. I had thought the hospital had moved all smoking off property. What age child do you think was left sleeping for the Mother to take a smoke break? I believe it is a hike just to get to a smoking area. These kind of things may be why she has such a poor relationship with the medical team.

We reside in Campbell and were very impressed with Twin Rivers hospital as my grandfather was just there recently and received excellent care. The nurses in the ER were very nice and seemed to care about his well-being. They were constantly asking how he felt. The nurses on the third floor were great and were always willing to help. The room was kept clean. Dr. Tomescu was super, too. We feel very fortunate to have been blessed by the medical care received. We will definitely use the hospital again. May God bless the staff and keep up the good work.

My daughter was in the hospital,and we did have a good stay.However i do smoke,and when we were there you could still smoke on the grounds.I would go smoke when she was asleep,but when you smoke,and there is nobody at the hospital with you trust me you want a cig. cause of course your stressed out. For sure when your baby is there,and nothing is being done for you. If they knew she was smoking then why leave a hot plate in there ant ways? I'm not trying to be rude,but I think some one could be nice enough to watch the baby for a few min. while she took a smoke break. No it's not their job,but still I would have done it for her. Also there is no way they could get her for kidnapping ,and I don't think dfs would have said much if she took her to a different hospital.Laura I would really get that checked out some where else I know a little boy who couldn't eat,and his parents did nothing for it(not saying you won't)but know he has a tube in his stomach,and will have for a long time. Good luck I hope everything gets better.

Don't get me wrong I do like some of the staff at the hospital,but alot of them if you don't look like you have money they will be really snobby towards you.

Do you know her? If not how can you say that. I don't know her,but I know how she feels in a way,and not anybody in this WORLD can say I don't take very good care of my daughter.
