hello , the reason for the second surgery could have been wrong thread to sow hernia mesh I am not quite clear on the reason for second surgery received a letter from CAMC feb/07/2018 stating seven years from date of surgery regarding surgical complications impedes ability to evaluate matter, the mesh is still in my abdomen from the date of surgery it has gradually manifested its complication with time to taken IBUPROPHEN for pain and FAMOTIDINE for upset stomach, I fear worser complication will manifest in future if the mesh fails or unforeseeable complications would require medical action to be resolved this causes me to be concern the mesh is still permanent uncertain potential that needs to be address update thank you

Camc Health System - Review on CAMC Memorial Hospital in Charleston, WV

2 comments

Debra Ann Kennedy — My mother was admitted to the hospital with 6 pounds of fluid on her body. This should have been a simple process but the first hospitalist said it was a balancing act and not to worry, they would have her back to normal soon. I traveled from Charlotte and stayed with my mother every night and waited for the Doctor's to do their rounds and then my father stayed with my Mom when I left so she had family with her 24/7. We had so many issues with this hospital with mistakes, patient neglect and lack of communication.

Over the course of her stay, she had 4 different hospitalist which meant she did not have a team of Doctor's that knew her history. She was moved to ICU and the nursing staff there was amazing. The demise of her health came when she was moved to 4 West. When we arrived on this floor, our nurse said that this floor was under staffed, the nurses were lazy and that hopefully we would get a good nurse as she was leaving her shift and off for 4 days.. We were not so lucky. This hospital hires a lot of traveling nurses and one confided in me that she could not wait for her contract to be up as this hospital and this floor were the worst she had seen in her 20 years in the business. My Mother's room was rarely cleaned and the nurses were never available. One day we waited 3 hours for the nurse to arrive after we called and called on the call button. Incorrect drugs were given to her so make sure you have the nurse give you a list of the drugs given daily as they make many mistakes.

The reason she was admitted was to remove the fluid but she was not even weighed daily. I finally ask if they could start weighing her as I felt she was gaining fluid instead of losing fluid from her body. I had heard horror stories from other patients about the Doctor's and the care given at this hospital and unfortunately they were correct. My Mother passed away on August 30th. I have heard great things about Saint Francis Hospital and the hospital in Huntington. I feel my mother would have lived had she been admitted to one of those hospitals. My two best friends are Doctors in Charlotte and they say that she had the worst case of patient neglect they have ever seen. I just do not want anyone else to experience what we have been through.

Reason of review: Poor customer service.

I talked with Debra several times while Her Mom was in this Hospital ....the treatment she recieved was less than acceptable...It was very stressful for Debra and her Family having to witness this negligence.

Her Mother was not given the care she should have. The carelessness of the staff is inexcusable. Families put their trust in Nurses and Doctors to take care of their loved ones in the Hospital, its unfortunate this is not experienced Here.
