Re: “Hospital Discharge

ALTHOUGH I DO NOT KNOW THIS PARTICULAR DOC.AT WEST PENN HOSPITAL,I DO AGREE THAT THE PATIENT CARE HAS BEEN VERY LAPSE.MY MOTHER BECAME A PATIENT AT WEST PENN ONLY AFTER ST.FRANCIS CLOSED.HER LAST SEVERAL VISITS THERE HAVE BEEN DEGRADING AND LIFE THREATNING!! WITH A DIAGNOSIS OF CHF,HYPERTENSION,AND COPD JUST TO NAME A FEW,I EXPECT NOTHING SHORTCOMING.INSTEAD SHE ALONG WITH HER LOVED ONES ENDURED,A CONCERN FOR HER SAFETY,ATTITUDE AND JUST CLEAR CUT UNPROFESSIONALISM.I WILL SAY THAT HER DOCTORS ARE WONDERFUL,WELL EDUCATED PROFESSIONALS AND THAT IS THE ONLY REASON,I CONTINUE TO TAKE HER THERE FOR TREATMENT.WE ALL ARE BOMBARDED AT TIMES,STRESSED OUT IN THE WORK PLACE AND JUST PLAIN OLD HUMANS WHO HAVE BAD DAYS,HOWEVER WHEN YOUR PROFESSION IS IN THE MEDICAL FIELD THERE IS LITTLE TO NO ROOM FOR ERROR!!!DR.LEMONICK HAS A MORAL OBLIGATION AND EVERY RIGHT TO BE CONCERNED FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL PATIENTS WHETHER HE IS CARING FOR THEM DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY.HE TOOK AN OATH THAT IS LAWFULLY BINDING.MY MOTHER WHOM I ADORE,WAS GIVEN ANOTHER PT'S ARMBAND ACOUPLE OF YEARS AGO.A NURSE CAME IN TO ADMINISTER MEDICATION.SHORTLY AFTER SHE WENT INTO CARDIAC ARREST,WHEN I DISCOVERED THAT THE ARM BAND WAS NOT HER AND BROUGHT IT TOO THE ATTENTION OF OTHERS.I WAS TOLD THAT THEY COULD ASSURE ME SHE WAS NOT GIVEN MEDICATION INTENDED FOR SOMEONE ELSE???AND TRIED TO DIVERT ME IN DIRECTIONS THAT WOULD ALLOW TIME FOR A COVER UP.NOT KNOWING THAT I TOO HOLD A LICENSE IN NURSING.HOW IN THE WORLD IS WEST PENN THE ONLY HOSPITAL IN WESTERN PA.RECOGNIZED FOR MAGNET STATUS WITH QUALITY OF CARE SUCH AS THAT??? I COMMEND DR.LEMONICK FOR NOT TURNING THE OTHER CHEEK!!!!
