feedback about Barnes Jewish Hospital
I had surgery today at Barnes and, despite the situation I’m in, my experience was wonderful. The doctors, nursing staff, and techs were all very kind. I haven’t ever had a bad experience at Barnes. Their staff are top notch and I definitely feel I made a great decision when choosing them to treat me. Thank you to my team of doctors, nurses, and techs!
Side note, Dr. Aleem, who is my surgeon, is phenomenal at what he does. I have been blessed with a doctor who truly cares about my health. It’s easy to get an appointment to see him and he’s very thourough when examining you and explaining things. I’m extremely impressed and recommend anyone whose dealing with shoulder problems to see him.
My visit to the ER was painful. I was in physical pain yes, but the compassion fatigue and overall malaise of the staff was worse. Kindness and empathy are something you can not teach. The only kind person was an old beautiful African American nurse that discharged me.
Medical emergency, not the place to go during the day.
This was once a great hospital to which I financially supported as well felt pride. It has fallen quickly. There are some great docs and nurses, but increasingly few. The nurses are probably overworked and underpaid. But for whatever reason, they are often distracted from the kind of patient care one finds elsewhere. Basic patient needs, supported by hospitalists, were often ignored. A number of other patients told me they only came to Barnes as a last resort. Personally, I had the worst experience with techs--drips that never worked, draws that missed veins after six attempts (for me, its usually one) and left significant hematoma. Dispensing medication was a chronic problem.Drugs came at the wrong time, or not at all even though ordered. Barnes may remain a great choice for highly specialized medicine. For the usual reasons that people end up in a hospital, there are almost certainly better options.

I haven’t been to a hospital yet where the staff has been so wonderful and compassionate. My loved one was flown here for emergency neurosurgery. When the surgeon Dr. Albert Kim came and briefed us on the surgery we could tell that he was extremely invested in his work. This man was so brilliant and so humble. We couldn’t have wished for a better person to do this job. I cannot stress how amazing and this man was. The rest of the staff were upbeat, helpful, and compassionate. We trusted them completely with the care of our loved one. I’ve been to this hospital a few times and my experience has always been five stars.
I had a total abdominal hysterectomy on Thursday and was released today. I can't say enough good things about my care. Every nurse was so kind and compassionate to myself and my fiancee. Dr. Mutch is truly a fantastic Dr. I was extremely nervous, but the pain management team consoled me with an epidural. Even housekeeping and dietary were super friendly Best care I've ever received from a hospital. Thank you . Sandra Crabtree
