Terrible hospital! Super bad experience! I got there almost 5am after trying to heal myself alone with 4 Tylenol, no sleep, with severe synos infection, headache, pain on my face, sore throat! They have me a Ibuprofen! I left after 4 hours inside the hospital with pain, with sore throat, headache and pain! Spent $250 to come home with a prescription of a pill that I can buy over the counter! I told the nurse 2 times that it won’t heal me because I know! It’s not the first time I have synus infection but they didn’t care! Very disappointed! Wanted my time and my money and now I still am sick! DO NOT COME HERE IF TOU ARE LOOKING FOR GOOD DOCTORS TO SOLVE YOUR PAIN, YOU ARE BETTER OFF GOING TO A 24h CVS AND GET A IBUPROFEN OBER THE COUNTER, it will save you time, money! Because that’s what they will do
I understand that Florida has no state tax, and it clearly shows by the way they run facilities like this. These hospitals are supposed to help people with mental illness. I can honestly say I've never been more disgusted. It's downright disturbing that they can put somebody in here who's depressed, but NOT showing any signs of psychotic features. This place is like a scene from One Flew Over A Cuckoos Nest, and I'm not exaggerating. What's even more disturbing is they can hold a patient past the 72 hour Bakers Act against their will. You will receive exactly 10 minutes a day for treatment with a psychologist. There is no other counseling. He/She will not listen to what you have to say. Trust me, this is a jail, and these people aren't qualified to help you. The staff simply does not care, and they lack communication skills. They assume everyone that's admitted knows the drill. If you ask them for anything they are put out. The patients are severely ill. Some people have been there for several months. Most have schizophrenia, and they are violent. If you're a normal person this place will send you out in worse shape than you entered with PTSD that will last a lifetime. The treatment I observed, and received was not only egregious, but also borderline abusive.
My adult child voluntarily admitted herself in due to her mental health condition. The good, my child was unable to harm herself if her condition got worst. All the bads: 1) Lack of communication between the medical staff themselves and also with the patients. Yes, some people who are admitted are repeats but there are some that are experiencing this for the first time and any guidance would have been greatly appreciated instead of being left in the dark. 2) Staffs who are there just for a paycheck. If you have lost your empathy or desire to help people (especially those who are suffering from depression or feeling suicidal) please do the world a favor and go work somewhere instead of sticking around and making someone feel even worst or inadequate about themselves for being there. 3) Explain to the patient what he/she should do after discharge. Let them know that if they have any prescription that it might be filled out in the hospital's pharmacy. 4) Training on how to educate families and patients who are experiencing this for the first or at least let the family know that someone is there to help them in this tough situation. Again, not everyone who comes in are repeat patients who knows the drill.
My nurse was coming in my room around 4 to 5oclock his name was michael he gave me a hand full of medicine I told him alnt this illegal and he said yes but he liked me and not to say anything. I'm sure it was on tape and also did not scan bracelet would not take incident report
This place helped me a lot. I was desperately in need of psychiatric help. I knew I had some sort of mental illness but was undiagnosed and had nowhere else to turn. It was interfering with my job performance and ability to hold a job, and since I was raised by narcissists I had no family support. No friends, either. The staff were very kind and attentive, and took care of our needs well. I was diagnosed and provided medication on day 1. When I left, one of the nurses paid for a month's worth of prescriptions out of pocket because I wasn't going to be able to afford them. There were so many ungrateful inpatients and I was disgusted by the way they took this place for granted. As for me, I know what it's like to suffer without help and these people were treating me well when life wasn't and no one else was. The difference these people made in my life is an experience I'll never forget. Ignore these ungrateful 1 star reviewers who clearly don't know what it's like to struggle with mental illness while alone in the world and having to fend for yourself and survive.
