2 days ago a visitor fell at my deck big gash on her forehead blood everywhere, took her to Skiff, ER is full, both rooms, have a seat in the waiting room.

Today I was scheduled for surgery at Iowa methodist, all naked IV in blood work showed very low potassium get dressed, go home, see your family DR , the middle of the week he's off. Take the DR on call it's the big clinic with 20 Dr's, waiting ,waiting, getting pissed. I told the nurse to call methodist for the blood work but he has to do it again,

NOthing but bad experiencs at Skiff, 5 days there in the past, 1 shower,my room was never cleaned, piss all over the visitors restroom,for days, I couldn't stay in my room my roomie had a potty chair and stunk up the whole floor.

It's a small town hospital, my wife and myself were both in she with a broken arm from falling down the stairs, myself with a mini stroke, due to her telling staff I couldn't see or use one arm, I didn't notice it.

Her aunt a big contributor to skiff told staff I was abusive which was not true, my wife had eplisy

True, nicer then before, but service has went downhill, and I think they hold you in E.R. for $$$. I was in Hosp. at Methodist west awhile back and their food would put ANY restaurant in Newton, and many in Des Moines to shame. Maybe when they merge with mercy, it will be even better?

Actually the food was very good this time and available 24 hrs a day, any visitor can eat with you for $5 any thing you want if they have it.

All the rooms have been remodeled and are private no more doubles.
