feedback about Abington Memorial Hospital
Was recently a patient here and everyone from the doctors down to the kitchen and house keeping were excellent. My nurses and Dr in the emergency room were excellent and i can't say enough about my nurses on 2west in the widner bldg. They got me through some very scary emotional times. God bless each and every one of them.
came in on July second for asthma and shortness of breath. I sat in ER waiting room for four hours!!! Coughing having trouble breathing. I was being told that it is a number system I have to wait my turn are you kidding!! My wife asked to speak a hospital manager he gave us the same excuse, how is the acceptable? As I am having my asthma attack some security guards come over and try to diagnose me how is that legal they are not medical professionals, the staff showed zero empathy and compassion. It was so bad that other waiting patrons offered me the number just that I could be seen. Then the nurse manager tells everyone that the system does not work that way, meanwhile I am on the floor searching for air and still being told that I have to wait. I will never use this hospital again not recommend , this is the worst service ever!!!!!!!!!
I am rating toll registration/ultrasound department one star. The wait time in the lobby is very long. I have had ultrasounds at various hospitals and this one is by far the longest wait time! They ask for the patient to arrive a half hour early only to wait an additional half hour after checking in. Once the technician is ready to see you the ultrasound takes about 30-45mins. Total time is about 2 1/2hours or more. Most of my ultrasounds I have received at other places was about 1/2 of the time spent here. This is my fourth visit here at Abington ultrasound department and nothing has changed. I hope management reads my post and make changes.
DO NOT COME TO THIS HOSPITAL - I have personally witnessed the terrible care my sister has had this last week at the hands of doctors and nurses. No coordination in meds assigned, etc. She had an amputation and had to return three weeks later due to infection. Now has MRSA (Mercer) because of unsanitary conditions. Certain nurses have been absolutely rude!! Doctors are not explaining what is happening or why. They are short-staffed and did not change bedding or clean bathroom for more than 5 days!!! It did not used to be this way. I gave birth to two kids at this hospital over 25 years ago... what happened??? Again, do not send anyone here that you love and want to live. Find another hospital!!
Medical staff were awesome. Very knowledgeable and kind. They went out of their way to make you comfortable. Everyone greeted you warmly and smiled. The facility was very clean and well kept.
