HORRIBLE HOSPITAL

My father had a 5 hour heart surgery on 3/9/21. The surgeon who did his surgery never prescribed any pain medication for him, so his nurse had to request a prescription. He was at an 8 on the pain scale for over an hour and a half before she finally brought him 2.5 MG of Dilaudid. An hour after that, his pain had not lessened at all, so he asked for more. 4 hours later and 3 calls to the nurses station, they finally brought him 2MG of Morphine, which is 8X LESS POTANT than Dilaudid. Over an hour later, his pain still had not diminished in the least and they refused to give him anything more for pain, even though the two doses he had already gotten that day were the lowest doses possible. My father spent 12 hours in an excruciating amount of pain after a major heart surgery because these nurses refused to help him manage his pain like they should have. If this continues in the morning, we will have no choice but to transfer him to another hospital. Letting a man suffer in an unbearable amount of pain is cruel and unwarranted. I will be filing a complaint with this hospital first thing in the morning. I will say, the entire staff of Phoebe Putney, save for one of his nurses, were incredibly nice, but what good is niceness when you’re forced to lay there in agony with no reprieve. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT use this hospital. Find one where the staff actually CARES about the well-being of their patients. I am truly disgusted with their lack of compassion.
