Comment: It is a religious hospital. They did not give me any of my medication that I am prescribed which inclues pain medication for my disability until the 2nd night. Then they named the meds incorrectly. I was half asleep and didn’t realize until I took them that the nurse had given me wrong meds. Had panic attack. No comfort was given. Things were sorted out and nurse just said the name wrong. Never apologized. Roommate constantly was pooping on toilet seat. Had to clean myself occasionally because no one at desk would pay me any attention after standing there 10 minutes. Very loud at night. Art therapy only thing helpful. Could not go outside.
