Kaiser Southern California Complaint - Poor Care And Follow Up
SAN DIEGO -- My father was hospitalized in June 2008. For one week they used him as a test subject for all different medications. They allowed him to take a bad fall then tried to cover it up. Hard to do since when I got to his room he had a cut on his head and blood all over his hands. For one week he complained about lower abdominal pain. This was just let go no exam to see if something could be wrong. On the second day the doctor came in and told my sister and I that my father was running a fever and they didn't know why. I explained that in the ER when they put the cath in to do a urine sample his urine was chocolate brown and smelled of something dead. He was surprised and ordered a test which showed my father had an infection. Now that is all they did. No further test nothing. Now it is Feb 2009 and after an ER visit on Sunday due to bowel obstruction they finally figured out that he has an enlarged Prostate that has blocked his bladder so that he can't release urine all the way and has another infection and how his bladder is enlarged due to the problem that was not diagnosed in June 2008. They inserted a catheter and sent him home. Now he is being told he cannot get into a specialist until the end of the month. Kaiser doesn't care about patient care or if they are uncomfortable or in pain it is all about the high dollar profit.
My father has paid 600 per month for 40 years for this horrible reflection of health care. They lie and cover up anything and everything they can. Beware of this horrible health care facility it could cost you a loved one.
