Nice Hospital Please Read Label before tearing it
Hospital itself was nice. A lot of money was spent on the hospital. Some of these doctors practice at other hosp. I am sure; I wonder if this is their protocol everywhere? The protocol for pain management is poor at John's Creek. I haven't ever been anywhere, where the treating ER MD couldn't understand allergies to medication and be able to work around it to help with pain control (amazing). After being in the ER for 4 hours in excruciating pain finally I was told "we are going to give you a little something we don't want you to have a reaction,” I wanted to scream READ THE CHART we covered this in ER treatment 101 when I got here 3 hours ago. I was admitted and you guessed it, we were right back to the pain control train. Regardless, I was sick literally from the pain and ask numerous times, they gave the equivalent to Tylenol IV. I ended up having surgery you got it, no post op pain control. I am a nurse and Post Op is def. where pain control is given and needed. It is not the rule there, it is def. the exception. It took a lot of asking and questioning to get anything done. This leaves me baffled. They have a great facility some great nurses, and the MD's are nice, but someone forgot to sit down and find an effective policy for pain management. Room service and big rooms only go so far. There are people in pain and not seeking drugs, remember that. If you’re that jaded get out of medicine. Don't make us suffer. No two illnesses are alike. Glad my surgeon was nice.
