Another night (about 11:55pm) during our stay on the 5th floor we called the nurse to get my wifes pain medicine, about 1am we decided to go and look for a nurse. After we walked all the way down the hall we found the nurse who said i just wanted to walk to your room. It took 10 more minutes (my wife was in pain so it took forever for her) until she came back with the pills.
Another day we asked for some formula for our son and were waiting for more than an hour. We had to call the nurse again (front desk i guess) and she was very angry, that nobody came and gave us formula. We were able to feed our baby after maybe 90-120 minutes after she came back to give us formula.
We had a very nice nurse (Katie) at night and it took just a few moments until she came after pressing the nurse button. She managed her shift very well so my wife was never in pain. Our son never cried when she touched him to change or check him. He had trouble with everyone else. (5/5 Stars)
