Crestwood Hospital, Huntsville Alabama Complaint - Was not given good treatment
HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA -- On January the 31st I fell coming out the back of crestwood hospital down some concrete steps that had no hand rail. I am 67 years old and was carrying MRI films I had picked up for my husband. I lost my footing some way and could not catch myself, had there been a railing I would have had hold of it. Never the less they took me to ER because I was bleeding from ny mouth for I had busted my mouth, also my right knee and leg was bleeding it had split my pants, my wrist was bruised as was my shoulder and it broke my glasses I also have a black eye from the glasses cutting my face. They x-rayed my knee and my wrist and nothing was broken, so they proceeded to discharge me without so much as cleaning the blood from my face or leg not so much as a cotton ball with alcohol, nothing, I asked them if they were not going to clean my wounds and they informed me that they had given me a tetanus shot and no they were not going to. I did get very hateful to the nurse at that point and she let me know that I had no right to be rude to her so I told her if she would get out that door she would not have to worry about me being rude to her. They refused to pay for my treatment or my glasses even though I was hurt on their property.
Which was not why I am so upset I am upset because they did not try to give me any treatment or console me in anyway the way you would think a hospital would. I have a Daughter who is an RN in Birmingham at Shelby Baptist and she is just blown away about the way I was treated. I guess my feelings are so hurt that I want the world to know what kind of treatment that Crestwood gives, I will never be a patient there again unless I am unconscious and an ambulance takes me there. All my friends are just appalled by this disgraceful treatment and we all plan to back Huntsville Hospital with everything and in everyway we can.
Sincerely, Martha Thompson
