Saving Bellevue Hospital Patients Money on All Things Healthcare
feedback about Bellevue Hospital
I went to Bellevue through an ambulance thinking i had a kidney infection. Well no, turns out I had sepsis with a severe kidney infection and was diagnosed about 30 minutes after arrival and admitted.
I waited in the emergency room for a bed upstairs for 36 HOURS. Luckily, I had one phenomenal nurse who listened to my doctors (once admitted, the ER doctors stop treating you), took my vitals every four hours, and made sure I was doing okay. After her shift ended (my first 12 hours) it's like the nursing staff stopped caring about the patients that were admitted. I literally had to stop a charge nurse at one point who asked who I was -- (which goes to show, bad staff changing) but I knew better to raise my voice, pointed at the screens where they show names and vitals and told her I hadn't gotten antibiotics that day (which is what you need to get over sepsis) and she didn't call them up. I also begged for my vitals to be taken because I knew I had a fever and I wanted my charts to reflect my health both on and off the high doses of Tylenol they gave me your bring my fever down. I went a full day in the hospital without getting the antibiotics that I needed. ANTIBIOTICS.
Once I got a bed, the nurses were still troubling -- forgetting to give medication, forgetting to take vitals. I am a healthy 25 year old woman and I was shocked at not only how they treated me but my roommates. I was in the hospital for quite sometime and was shocked watching new patients come into my room and the treatment they received by the nursing staff.
The doctors were good, but on leaving gave me the wrong antibiotic prescription that a pharmacist had to tell me that they don't make it in that dose. I realize residency is difficult but time and accuracy can be vital to sustaining life.
I would ask the management to evaluate nursing practice and triage as well as the hand off procedures. Residents should ensure a doctor knows what prescription is written through a doctor nod off or something so a patient who could have died wouldn't have to spend hours trying to get the right one written, for antibiotics!
I would not advise this hospital. I felt they treated me poorly as with many of the patients. I understand how busy things can get but these are lives you're playing with.
Worst nurses ever. They are lazy. Stand around. Do nothing except complain a d behave rowdy with each other. They lack passion in health care - it is clear that they are tired of their jobs. If you are unfortunate to end up at this hospital, I hope you have a relative with you. They will let you drown in your own vomit. The doctors here are fine, many of them seem to care. But I couldn't find a single nurse that seemed professional. I was in the ER 04/11/2019 from 10am to 12am absolutely horrible nurses. Horrible service. Horrible.
I would give zero stars...
The most disgusting, roach & water bug infestation I've ever saw. While I was there to drop off medical records there was a 3 inch water bug on the desk where I was told to wait. I said to a worker " look" she replied "I've seen bigger" I counted 38 water bugs & roaches.
I saw a few patients with bites all over their arms, they are all elderly I asked a Nurse "what is all of those bites from"? She replied "bed bugs..no big deal" I waited there 6 hours to tell the daughter of the 92 year old bed ridden woman who is her mother about the bed bugs & what the nurse said. I showed her the video of all the bugs..the daughter broke down & cried..She immediately had her mom transferred to another hospital in Westchester. Bed bugs, water bugs & roaches...the staff is to lazy to do anything but play candy crush. Sad that the staff knows that patients are being bit all over by bed bugs the bites turned to sores.
Bellevue Hospital in the 20's on the east side of Manhattan is NYC No. 1 public hospital, and it is 1 of the best hospital in the country.
I know a lot of folks will say the opposite about Bellevue Hospital, and they are probably right about their issues.
When I say Bellevue Hospital is 1 of the best hospitals, I am talking about the medical treatments that is practiced there.
Bellevue Hospital is very advance with their medical technology and treatments for certain medical conditions.
It is the number one hospital to treat most of the NYPD and the FDNY personnel that is injured in the line of duty in NYC.
I have been coming here for years I was born in this hospital but the lack of respect to the patients is disgusting. I have been taking my prenatal appointments here but I had enough. From the nurses to the receptionist it truly is disgusting. If your job sucks that much leave but dont take it out on the patients especially to those how have been nothing but loyal to this hospital. I'm just sick of this hospital. And I am done with it I want nothing to do with this hospital.
