On June 2nd, after my girlfriend was induced and went through 24 hours of labor, our baby boy turned breech at the last minute and had the cord wrapped around his neck, my girlfriend was rushed in for an emergency c-section. At 4:08 AM, he was born, 6 lbs 14oz. All in all, we stayed in the hospital for about a week, although the baby was discharged a couple days before mom. 

There were good experiences and some majorly bad ones with the hospital staff. First, L&D were pretty amazing, but mother and baby, which is on another floor, was mostly horrific, and for the most part, I believe it was because my girlfriends was in a wheelchair, and some of the nurses and assistants almost treated her like she was contagious. Some obviously didn’t think people in wheelchairs needed to have kids. A couple were complete a-holes, one even being basically combative. 

In the whole mother and baby section, they have only one wheelchair acuroom. They assigned that room to someone not in a wheelchair, and only after requests and cmoplaints did we get that room. One of the nurses tried to hide her being a botch but was snooty and didn’t even want to get close to my girlfriend or touch her or anything. Any time she talked to her, the nurse would stand off in a distance. Social workers got involved, and they tried to force my girlfriend to go to a rehab facility, instead of coming straight home. I ended up having to call up a family member, to come take the baby, because I did not want him to be around if there were any confrontations. Right before our child was going to leave with the family member, the hospital did a 180 and just released her. 

It wouldn’t end there though, because she got a bad infection from wearing the catheter for too long in the hospital. They were suppose to send her home with medications, to treat it, but they didn’t. Just yesterday, we had to take her back to a doctor, to get medication for her. I complained to our main o GYN doctor about her treatment there, and her response was to close the door, so that the other nurse who was peaking her head in and listening to my complaints wouldn’t hear what I said and became completely dismissive of everything I said. Thank God we are out of that hell hole. 

Some people may think of the UF as one of the best hospitals there is, but it is a teaching hospital, with mostly young staff that are arrogant and do not have a lot of experience, even if they are book smart.

I realize there are quite a bit of spelling mistakes in my post. I’m not used to typing on an iPad and don’t really have a pc or laptop where I am, but in August sometime, hopefully I’ll be back on the farm, with my own pc. My girlfriend is kind of weird about people using her MacBook.
