My husband was just transferred from Ochsners baptist hospital to this hospital. Omg we just got here we went from a nice clean private room to a filthy semi room the poor guy here has not stopped talking or Groaning which is not his fault. But the floor is so nasty my shoes are sticking to it, everything I've touched is gross. I will never bring him back here. All the money you spend they should have a clean room, if not they need a new house keeper. We actually came to the emergency room on Monday after waiting over 8 hrs. They still had 3 people ahead of him that is why we left. Wish would have stayed where we was. Only reason we agreed to be transferred is because his dr. Is here. I'm very disgusted & not happy at all with this hospital.

I had an appt with ENT today and they scheduled a CT scan for the next day. I got a confirmation call and 30 minutes later got a call stating my ins takes 72 hours to authorize. I called Ins who stated all they have to do is call and they could get authorization over the phone. Tried calling back but got the run around three times. Finally at 4 I contacted the ENT dept and the nurse promised to call me back after 5 when she was finished with patiens, guess what??? NO CALL BACK and so my 7am appt is now canc because they refuse to communicate with there patients.. THEY NEVER RETURN CALLS AND PUSH YOU OFF ON EVERYONE ELSE...........
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.
