in the last week
I have always like Children's and it wasn't our overall experience there but tonight it was the DOCTOR"S that was on staff tonight that "took care" of my daughter. I will start off by saying that my daughter had been in the Dominican for 6 days and just returned last week. Today she started having a bad headache and stomach hurting and a fever of 101.9. We first took her to the after hours clinic. They did all they could do as in rapid strep test and an exam. With her recent travels and the typhoid fever that is possible they wanted us to go to Children's and have blood drawn just to be on the safe side. We arrived at the ER and I told them everything and they got us back in triage right away. Only complaint there was they took her temp and they said it was only 98 which I know that was incorrect cause she was drinking ice water. We got back to the room quickly. They wanted to do an xray of her stomach and another strep test. After they came back in the room they told me that she looked good and they weren't worried about the typhoid cause she looked good and she didn't have any vomiting or diarrhea. I got snappy with them and told them I wanted the labs done. The doctor then told me that labs were just a number and they weren't going to change anything they do tonight for her. The labs wont tell me what is wrong with her. Hello, that was not the point of me coming here. I JUST WANT LABS! They tried to tell me that her abdominal pain was due to mild constipation cause her xray showed a lot of poop but not enough for an enema?!?! Needless to say after me demanding the blood work they did it but sent us home with paper that said she was seen for acute pharyngitis and constipation. They even had 2 different doctors come and tell me that they don't know why they sent me there for labs. That was still not changing my mind. If you are reading this review look up typhoid and see what the symptoms are for yourself and now you will see why I am so mad over this. This was MY child that they wanted to just assume she didn't have something. I am not sorry that I was worried because my child has just traveled out of the states and I wanted to make sure she hadn't contracted an illness from there. Some doctor's just don't care anymore. It wasn't like we visit the ER all the time and they were thinking oh great here they are again. I am so disappointed in the doctors that I seen tonight.

We visited today (unfortunately) and most of the staff was very child friendly and explained things quite well and clear. The lady that came in from respiratory to give my daughter a breathing treatment didn't say a word to comfort my daughter (21 months old), she just shoved that mask in her face and held it there. I wish every department that dealt with patience had the same demeanor as the emergency staff.

Our daughter was admitted by her Doctor. They had us checked in, in a room and receiving care all in under 20 minutes! The staff was great. We had a wonderful experience with very caring staff. We have dealt with other hospitals in the past (UT NICU) and would rate Children's well above the rest. Our nurses were Kristen and Casha and they were amazing!! Very sweet and went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable in a difficult situation!! Awesome!

We had to wait 45 minutes before they triaged our baby. Had to insist they take her temperature and when the RN did she told us it was 98 (twice) I told her to take it again rectally because she was burning up and it was 103.8 (pathetic). Our baby ended up contracting croup on top of the viral infection we went there for. Our other daughter contracted a stomach virus from there. Pretty sad we end up leaving with more ailments then we arrived with. I will say once we got back to ER the nurses and doctors were nice and accommodating. We left 9 hours later with no resolution on our babies condition and her still having a high fever. One of the worst experiences we ever had at a children's hospital.
