No communication with nurses or us during my husbands stay at Jewish Hospital. No liquid going into him, he become dehydrated while there. I did not find out about his surgery till the morning of his surgery as they were prepping him to go to surgery! We live an hour from the hospital, so did me alot of good, cause I could not be there before the surgery started. Not happy with him from the start.
