Since zero stars is not a option I am forced to put one star. I am VERY disappointed with this hospital as it has been my hospital since I was 2 years old. I was scheduled for a 9:30 CAT scan appointment and as I got called in to be prepped and have my contrast shot in through ivy I had a woman by the name Kelly Thibault. Before she put in my ivy and contrast she had a few red flags, long story short she did not ask if I was pregnant nor did she ask if I was allergic to the contrast. I also found out later on after being sent to the ER due to her mistake or inexperience (who’s knows) that she did not make me fill out a consent before proceeding. She injected the ivy and missed my vein! She insisted it was in and was trying to force the ivy and contrast into my body as it wasn’t flowing normally. Next thing you know my arm lost all circulation, my arm turned into dead weight and was purple and I went out cold and unresponsive. My heart stopped for 8-10 seconds and I lost oxygen in my brain. I woke up sweating, crying, scared, traumatized, and confused. All I remember is her screaming help and a code 10. I was rushed to the ER and was monitored for hours. If you have her please request someone else. I wouldn’t want anyone else to go through what I went through. She is also very sarcastic. I don’t need someone saying to me “Now I know next time I’ll have to put you under anesthesia to give you an ivy.” Or her asking “If I’m done scaring everyone for the day.” Very unacceptable and unprofessional. I will say thank you to Dr. Michael for being sincere and making sure I was in good condition before I was discharged. Please be aware of who you have and what they do.
