What type of chemical is this? We have the right to know and need a lot more information to protect our children. Apart from all the funny comments, I bed you won't be laughing if you find out it causes cancer.
how about a collective law suit against Phoebe for all the surgical infections? Who is with me?
you all are complaining but when it comes to meetings or petitions everyone is afraid to stand up to Phoebe or has no time, it is time that we get together and petition Joint Commision to withdraw accreditation from Phoebe until higher standards are in place. Leadership of Phoebe should be changed. I too had a surgical wound and I totally understand all the tears and anger against Phoebe. It is time that we rise and stand up to PHOEBE and Patten.
@ Mr_Heatmiser: AT THE WRONG PLACE... EXACTLY! I hope you never end up at Phoebe's OR and go what I am going through. If you ever do, you will know what is like to trust your doctor and your community hospital and end up with a giant wound. The vet did a better job on my cat than Dr. Graff and Phoebe on a human being.
olddog123, thanks for your opinion but I disagree a petition can change many things if signed by enough people, look at previous petitions such as the one to bank of America it made National News and Bank of America abolished its fees that it was trying to impose on its customers, the other banks like Regions followed the link and abolished their check card fees! If enough people in the are suffer from the actions of the hospital, then there is something wrong. Please help support the petition. You can sign it privately if afraid.
People, please keep signing the petition, if we get enough people to sign it, we can change the way things are! We deserve to have clean operating rooms and good doctors. Jacob, I hope you never EVER end up with the kind of wound that Phoebe gave me and the bills that I get. I can't believe you call it a "service"? Are you telling me they did me a service by infecting my healthy body? Only those of us who go through this know the suffering and tears that Phoebe has caused us. I was deprived of the valuable time with my little baby going back and back to the doctors to treat the infection. It has been 4 months since the baby was born and I am still suffering from this wound. I have several neighbors who go outside of town to get surgery because people in the area who had surgeries at Phoebe end up with staff infections. WE DESERVE CLEAN hospitals especially since we have no where else to go! Phoebe bought almost everything in this area...When you run a hospital like a business this is what you end up with. No care for your patients just profit-seeking...
It is sad really. Thanks to Albany Herald for exposing the truth!
In their advertisement it says "we will take anyone regardless of race and income", yet they make thousand of dollars on us! I keep getting bills from them...I can't believe the article is calling Phoebe a "non-profit", a non-profit, really???? A mega profit-seekng corporation!
I have suffered so much as a result of Phoebe's dirty operating room, please sign my petition. "Never doubt that a small group of individuals can change the world"!!
Unfortunately, you cannot always refuse a surgery if it is a medical emergency, for example I had to have a c-section at Phoebe and suffered a complication as a result of their dirty operating room, I had a wound that was over 5 inches long! Please read my story and sign a petition. Together we can beat this beast.
