My mom was hospitalized in the STICU. the nurse LEFT HER on the actual toilet BY HERSELF with a broken leg...I've yet to speak to her actual doctor since she was admitted in november. NO one showed me ex rays or anything pertaining to her surgeries. They are neglectful and her nurse manhandled her infront of me when she needed help to get onto her bed. They made jokes about accidentally leaving equipment in the wrong positions to where it could explode or having attitudes about me asking about her medications. I totally do not recommend this hospital. Go to roper st francis.

Completely unprofessional! We have to drive down here from Charlotte, we got a hotel last night, and with both myself and my wife on disability, this was a big hit before Christmas. Then we get up real early, little sleep, get to MUSC, awaiting a blood draw before our appointment.. Then we get a phone call, less than an hr before our appointment, and MUSC wants us to reschedule... when I do this kind of thing to a doctor, they will charge me. Don't go here, unless you have too. And if they say you have to, talk to a lawyer and see if they are lying.

These people administered administer medication to my child without my consent I brought it to the manager's attention and they are incompetent to handle the situation I have everything and proof on the paper from his medical records saying that they administered him hepatitis B when the only thing that I asked for him to get was vitamin K vaccination but they gave them Hepatitis B they recorded it several times on his medical records and now they are denying that they did anything they said that they will put an amendment to his medical records and add on there that he did not receive it but it's a lie because he did it says it on the paper I sent them stuff in the mail they will not reply so the next step is a lawsuit against this Hospital I would not recommend anyone to go there especially if you're choosing to go the natural way with your child they will push medication on you even though you give them a medical plan how you want your birth to go they will still push their ways and their regulations on you. My child has suffered from an injury from their disease causing vaccine
