I was very disappointed with my husbands experience with a a very highly rated teaching hospital in Florida. Way to many fingers in the pie and too many different ideas. Sometime h att dings are so busy try to impress the residents and showing off their powers that the patient is overlooked. When he was discharged they wrote the orders wrong and incomplete. Had the nurse not made me aware of the plan he would have been I. Serious trouble. I had to call back to the hospital and find out who wrote the orders and get them right. They never did write the proper diet order and didn't even address the rehab. This is very serious since he had a massive MI. We don't have any alternatives because that is where his cardiologist. Goes but he was not scheduled to do rounds so we never saw him. Concerned for the people who have no medical background. Everyone needs a GOOD advocate!
