Patient reviews of AdventHealth Ocala


Services Used:

My initial procedure was done with excellent service (Dr Acevedo, nurse Karen, anesthesiologist).. from the moment I was taken to my room on the 4th floor, the experience was horrible. The nurse (Hannah) was not personable and took 3 1/2 hours to complete a task of releasing pressure on a wound (which caused much pain and inability to move..which caused back pain). Karen explained that this process would be done slowly…over 35 minutes. Hannah would release a little and was supposed to return in 20 minutes but in one instance came back in an hour and a half. An assistant nurse Victoria (very pleasant) ended up completing the task 3 1/2hours later.
I was not served dinner and when I asked about it at 6:30, the attendant on the floor(Susan) was surprised and scrambled up a meal for me but because the last of the pressure release was just completed, told me to eat mostly in a reclining position. That caused me to choke on the chicken, so I just slowly ate the cooked carrots and a little pasta.
Response times were very slow when I pushed the help button (15 minutes or more). The monitor I was connected to beeped on me every 5-10 minutes and when I asked what it meant(breathing too slow, heart rate too slow), nothing was explained to me until I spoke to the night nurse (Mark) the next morning. I had to remind the staff to please bring breakfast as I wasn’t sure it would come as I never received a menu choice.
When I checked out, as the volunteer was wheeling me out, I felt nauseous (had vomited earlier) and asked if she could get me a pan or something. She took me back to the nurse’s station where she finally was able to get someone’s attention. That woman looked at me (almost disdainfully) and asked if I was a patient… then slowly went into a closet and retrieved a pan which she brought with a mask and (not very nicely) said I needed to put a mask on. The nausea thankfully passed and I didn’t need the pan.
Overall, this was the worst experience I have ever had staying overnight in a hospital.
