06/05/2015Overall one star is more than they deserve.I had surgery there. Could not wake up after surgery. One of the nurses kept yelling at me that I "was" going to stand up and leave the hospital. I kept getting sick and shaking and finely was admitted overnight for observation. One nurse said I was over medicated and that the Dr ordered after 12 hours for me to be narcamed if I did not come around and stay to. She said that they would rather not do that as I would not be able to stand the pain and could not be given pain medicine for many hours after that. It was over 12 hours before I could stay awake but I could not stand up as my legs shook really bad and I felt like I was going to be sick if I did not lay down.During the overnight stay,I was not checked on every two hours, never had my weight done before the surgery but they did it after the surgery to see if the weight they asked me matched the amount of medicine done for the surgery, one of the nurses took off the compression boots that the Dr. had on her orders that I needed after the surgery and threw in the trash after I could not stand up, stay awake and leave the hospital. She took me out of my hospital gown, put on my street clothes and told me to get back in bed. This is after she tried to get me to stand on my own which my legs kept shaking and I told her I was getting sick. She then kept taking her foot behind me and kicking my foot trying to make me walk. My mom was there watching all of this and could not believe how she acted.During the night of surgery,Many times my IV was empty and the alarm went off. It would be up to an hour before someone started it or even came in the room to check the alarm. You could hear them all laughing and talking at the nurse station but they would not come into the room.On the hospital stays the week before surgery my iv was disconnected because it was running out in my arm. Second shift never started it again just removed it since my arm was swelling up large and hurt really bad, 3rd shift had to restart it. The nurse on 3rd said that the IV should have not been left out and was mad that 2nd shift had done this. The iv was antibiotic for infection and I had to stay overnight because they could not do the emergency gall bladder surgery that day because of the infection.Day of surgeryThe compression boots were put back on three hours after they were thrown in the trash. 3rd shift again had to put them back on and restart that process so I would not get blood clots.During the night you are not checked often. When I asked to go to bathroom there were "many" times I was told to unhook the IV out of the wall, take off the boots and just go. When you have it on your arm band that you are a "fall risk" and are having a hard time walking this does not make sense that it is a bother to a nurse or a NA to help you. I should have just peed in the bed and let them clean it up. But since they put me back in my street clothes this would have been too much for me to put up with.I was never told to cough after surgery. CMH made me do breathing treatments in a tube and told to cough every hour or so after surgery there. HDH never once told me to cough. I went there because I was told it had become a better hospital over the years. I hate to feel that this is better. What was it before? You have some NA's that are nice and the nurses are nasty and then on another shift the NA is aweful and the nurse nice. Does not make sense. But when you have a nurse that yells at you because you can not fully wake up, are shaking and sick and tells you to get up and get out of the hospital that is in my notion not customer service. She told my mom to get an ambulance and just take me home. Lucky that I have a witness so that no one can say it was the medicine that made me just think this up. It is unfortunate that the 2nd floor area feel this way to patients.

Why can't we as Americans depend on are county and state to provide us with good hospitals. Why do we here in Hillsboro allow there to be a Hospital that is so terrible? We deserve better. Thanks Highland District Hospital for being good enough to only get one star.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
