dominican hospital has a reputation for screw ups like this,my friend went in there to get knee surgery and wound up catching staff infection because of non steral medical tools.this seems to be an ongoing problem,and im glad that someone finally put them in the spotlight,so they can clean up their act.

Dominican will pay the $25,000 fine by double-billing both patients $50,000 for the 'proceedures', and walk away with a nice profit. Remember Ladies and Gentlemen, they are only "practicing medicine". Sheesh...

Doctors are just like contractors, auto mechanics, and computer help. For every good one, there's a dozen incompetent morons who will empty your wallet, and make your problems worse.

What is it about CT scans that prompts errors? Last year I went into the scan room in a different Monterey Bay area hospital for two CT scans and they took four!

"This was due to an incompatibility of the software between the two systems," the state report said.
No, this was because of poorly trained personal. Also, shouldn't a doctor know the difference between a functioning appendix and a non-functioning appendix.$25,000 fine is nothing.

Blaming it on the computer again! Get real. Take full responsibility for your inadequacy.

I cannot stand Dominican. I needed hip surgery last year, went in to see the hip/knee people there and was told I would be getting an eight inch cut from my hip to mid-thigh, very old school. Such a prodedure would have cut my muscles and nerves and the recovery time would have been months, not weeks.
When I tried to tell the P.A. there about the new way of putting in a hip, he got angry WOW. So I walked (limped, really) out and found a doctor over the hill who did my hip.
I now have a two inch scar and was walking in three weeks. No nerves/muscles were cut.
The day Dominican catches up with the rest of the world I will go back there but until that time, I go elsewhere.
Hip hip hooray!

I am disabled and have spent far too much time in many hospitals. Dominican is a horrible hospital as far as their ER and general services go. The Psyche ward is like a prison for people with problems. cold cement walls, and very burned out workers. Since its the only one in the County, we basically have one of the worst help for those with mental health issues. Every doctor I know has said whatever you do, don't get yourself put in there. I must say they do have an excellent reputation for heart surgery. But thats about it. I look forward to Sutter's new hospital. Maybe I will not have to drive to Watsonville for help, because I stay clear of Dominicans ER. I had been diagnosed with appendicitis and it was removed when I was a child. The problem was, I had a bleeding stomach ulcer and my appendic's was just fine. Go figure. They said they removed it because they were there... Of course, that kind of thinking has changed, but Dominican has not aged well.

I think I would trust a veterinarian to operate on me before going to Dominican.

Dominican is one of the reasons I will not live in Santa Cruz county. I encountered a radiologist practicing PROFIT, not medicine. Also scaring women to boot when 'suspicious' results required a second xray.****-head. I have been to many hospitals nation-wide for consulting work, and the old school style medicine tolerated there is the worst. I am surprised the hospital is able to pass State & national standards of safety really. They probably do all sorts of unnecessary heart procedures too.

Only 2 choices around here- Palo Alto/Sutter or Dominican. I am also disabled; but have had no health problems until recently. Almost died with respiratory problems, went to medical center (Sutter- who does nothing until 9:00 AM) and when I passed out- someone called an ambulance- Dominican Emergency. In about 2 hours- "You're fine- you can go" **pant***wheeze*****thanks doc....... it seems health is going downhill very fast. Sad to see happen, but I kinda expect it cannot keep up with the confusion of overcrowding. Wonderful Future! Much more of that and I won't be here - playing a harp somewhere maybe, but in no shape to sue.

My dad got a back surgery from Dominican and they cut through all the tendons and mussels in his back. He works construction and now has a very hard time of it because they effed up. They deserve a bigger fine.

Last week a good friend of mine (who lives in Watsonville) began hemorraging blood from her mouth after a botched tonsillectomy. She called 911 & was picked up in an ambulance & transported to Watsonville hospital.
She sat for 1 HOUR in the ER of the hospital, gushing blood & filling bucket after bucket. Doctors & nurses sat around shuffling papers & NO ONE saw to her. After 1 HOUR she was losing consciousness & requested that the ambulance come back & take her to Dominican. At that point, Wats Hospital stuck an IV in her.
By the time she reached Dominican, she had lost >65% of her blood & was in critical condition.

I too have been left to the tender mercies of the staff of Dominican. 2 stays last year, the 2nd following a major surgery. I experienced short staffing, waiting hours for a pain pill, incorrect dosing of a steroid...in short, radiology is not the only department with deficiencies; someone should look into the pharmacy....and what happened to the "new chef"??? Not exactly "gourmet" food. A unit of Dominican, Dominican RCU is truly a disgrace. Their mission is to restore patients to health socially, emotionally...etc. It is truly a scary experience to be left there alone. No one answers the call light and the food is truly inedible as being transported from the hospital does not improve the quality.
Why can we not get decent and safe medical care in our community?

This news does not surprise or shock me in any way whatsoever. I do however believe that this will soon be forgotten, and Dominican will continue to harm and kill innocent people in Santa Cruz County.

As a nurse working on the other side of the hill, you all should know this happens everywhere. Maybe some of the other hospitals are less forthcoming in admitting their mistakes and are more accustomed to covering their errors. Remember that Dominican at least is a not-for-profit entity. I work for a big money making corporation that was indicted for Medi -Cal fraud and then for shredding the evidence. Dominican could have covered this up and called this unfortunate surgery a diagnostic laparoscopy with an incidental appendectomy. I have seen that many times. Thank God, everyone is okay. Stop discing our community hospital.
