I had my c-section in May, and I am still suffering with PTSD from the mistreatment I endured at this hospital. They didn’t believe me when the epidural wasn’t working and cut me open without anesthesia. They also let me labor for 5 hours without any medication (even though I had requested it from the beginning) because the anesthesiologist was busy in the OR with another c section that they botched and cut her bladder. The person who checked me in was rude (I was having contractions so bad I could barely sign in - no compassion) and the nurses completely ignored me the entire 5 hours - no compassion. They left me in the room alone to scream for hours. My husband works at the hospital so he was in and out trying to get things moving. At one point a nurse (not involved in my care) came in to ask my husband for an unofficial consult on her lip. Yes, as I was screaming in pain and she asked him to leave my side to look at her lip. There was maybe 1 or two that showed me any attention near the very end. I gave an extra star for the floor nurses who were great - except gave me horrible phlebitis from leaving the IV flipping around and unattended. But other than that they were so nice and attentive. My husband works here so my hands feel tied with what I feel would be appropriate action. And they obviously didn’t care, as no one reached out and I did not receive a survey. All I can really do is warn other women about labor and delivery at barnabas. I can never go back there, for anything really. Total loss of trust.

I gave two stars for my two nurses I had in my room after my c-section. Beforehand I could not have had a worse experience, and if they had bothered to send a survey they would know about the various and traumatic mistreatments I endured. I do no trust them as a hospital and i do t think I could ever return.
