My hysterectomy a few years ago at St Joseph: The record keeping department has problems. At the last minute, the doctor tried to reschedule, but I argued for keeping to the original date. The hospital records show the attempted rescheduled date, not the actual date. I suspect this is because the doctor was scheduled for vacation and they didn't want to change the books. When I told them about the error, they got very rude with me and refused to correct or to make any sort of reference to the error. I also had problems with one particular recovery nurse who refused to properly administer pain medication and also left me laying in my own waste for the her entire shift, at least eight hours. I was unable to get any help or even a response from any staff the entire shift. I was also improperly discharged too early, and had to make an emergency return because my bladder was blocked; I thought I was going to die. I also never recovered from the post-surgery pain, so I think something went wrong during the surgery. Overall, it was the worst experience I have ever had and I would not feel safe having surgery there again.
What's the impact on Humboldt County? How many to released locally? Types of crimes? Will plans for managing these folk be in place in time? Will these plans be made available to the public?
