I had a wonderful nurse named Marie. She was awesome. My every need was met almost before I even knew I had one. GREAT job!!!March 9, 2009
staff was very nice to me. The only complaint I had was the bed was not very comfortable. But then again, my lower back was bothering me from what I believe was being on the operating table.Sept. 4, 2008
My only problem during my stay came from a nurse (who normally worked on another floor). She came in at 3:30 AM and gave me a bath and took out my catheter after surgery the day before. I felt like that was too EARLY, and still don't understand why it was done at 3:30 in the morning????? I've had many hospitalizations and never had this happen. My daughter was sleeping in the room that night and thought it was strange too. Oh well, maybe she just thought it was 8:30 am and not 3:30 AM.Aug. 31, 2008
I had a great day nurse, Marie and the rest of the staff was great too! They all knew what they were doing and I felt comfortable there.Aug. 22, 2008
I had no issues with the staff at all. I worked in healthcare and it is unprofessional to tell a patient "I don't have time" and I was told that one time, other than a few bad personalities the stay was good.July 1, 2008
After surgery, the after care including education from nursing staff was poor. There was only one nurse that took the extra min. to educate me on dressing changes and after care. Every time I asked a question of anyone else they didnt have a clue and either said I dont know and left it at that or they had to go check and half the time still didnt know.March 15, 2008
The staff at NE Alabama Regional Medical Center surprised me at their knowledeg of wls and wls patients. They value Dr. Freeman as member of their team and seemed to be attentive to my needs because of his stature in the community.
There were a few issues: The Respiratory Department representatives came to the room for rep "therapy", which consisted of throwing a spirometer at me and telling me to breathe until they came back; and one of the night shift nurses was surly and unaccomodating.
Otherwise, the hospital experience was better than expected.
They were slow to respond, cranky and unfriendly, and when I tried to ask them for things they acted put out and took forever (lot of paging to remind them) to do whatever it was..May 24, 2007
