feedback about Bethesda Hospital East
After a positive experience here two years ago with my Mother, I am revising this review from 5 stars to 1. This place has apparently changed management and threw in the towel. Poor nursing care, not enough staff, and incompetent doctors that come here. I would strongly advise that you avoid this place!
Even when trying to seek the help of a Patient Advocate, they returned my call 5 days later!!
Can't speak for other people and their experiences but I just got home with my new born Son who is 2 days old and all I can say is that we had an absolutely wonderful experience giving birth at this hospital. The nurses, midwives and doctors were all absolutely amazing. Thank you all for the great care and advice you gave me and my little family.
Care was excellent. I was on the second floor. Nurse chelsey was the best. She checked on me often and went out of her way to ease my discomfort. All the nurse and staff were pleasant. Cudos to this hospital for their excellent care. Highly recommended.
Reckless care best describes this hospital. My mother sits in her own poop for hours, since they don't have enough staff when you press for help to go to the bathroom. They don't even change sheets on the bed afterwards, as you can see poop even under her arm near IV site. When admitted here, she was misdiagnosed at first and NPO for gallbladder removal surgery. When I got here, I told the doctor that had gallbladder had been removed 16 years prior! It turned out to be a UTI and pneumonia. The nurses almost never follow the doctors orders, so be prepared to spend long hours here with your loved one.
The rooms are old and outdated. No therapy over the weekends, yet the therapy is so poor during the week that my mother had to go to a skilled nursing facility before returning home.
I called for a patient advocate on day 2 here, they finally called back on day 6.
Absolutely worst hospital we have ever been to in our lives. Literally waited hours for them to Botch a simple blood test on my son. Also they require cash payment upfront for ALL procedures whether you have insurance or not. Incompetence is staggering. Avoid at all costs.
