I went through the ER for the first time and only waited 30 min. I was wheeled in and evaluated. Then was taken back into an ER room and began some testing. Nurses and ER doctor consulted with me and in 4 hours I was admitted to the hospital. Transfer from ER to upstairs was smooth and flawless. Thank you for making my first trip to the ER painless and not scary.
If I can give 0 stars I would. I am 26 weeks pregnant on Dec. 28th 2018 I was diagnose with influenza A and Bronchitis. Also I had a fever of 103 and my heart rate was elevated at 145-158. Dr. Yoganand Deendyal ordered an x-ray of my chest which when the Tech came to preform it I had ask if this was ok considering I'm pregnant, she seemed surprised and said yes as long as she uses some extra protection. I would have never gotten the extra protection if I didn't ask. The x-ray came back clean, but Dr. Deendyal asked me to sign a paper to do a cat-scan with contrast. When I asked why, he said I might have a blood clot somewhere b/c my heart rate is elevated and if they don't find it in time I may die (anyone's heart rate can be elevated with a fever of 103 and being as sick as I was and pregnant) I was in tears and frantic. I didn't feel like what he was saying made any sense to me considering I know when you're far along in pregnancy you try to avoid cat-scans and x-ray unless you really need it. This cat scan with contrast would have went through my placenta and on top of that their applying radiation to my baby. He had no valid reason for the cat scan. I know that just like anything else you do or take there can be reactions. If that tech didn't begin to list me the side affects, I would never know my baby and I can get cancer or be born with a disability. I took the information and refused the cat-scan. Dr. Deendyal seemed upset and asked why I refused the order for the scan, I expressed my concerns. He stated to me that "my worries are ridiculous b/c my baby can be born with cancer either way". This was shocking coming from a MEDICAL CARE PROFESSIONAL! I was already in tears and frustrated and worried for the care of me and my baby. He told me considering I refused order he's going to release me and give me medication one of them being an antibiotic. I ask him if he's sure that would be ok b/c I also know most antibiotics are not good for pregnant women. He told me obviously its ok that's why I'm prescribing it. The nurse then came in and said she not releasing me b/c my fever was still high and my heart rate was 158. I was so scared and stress it was literally impossible for me to calm down. I could barely walk, extremely dizzy and now thinking I may die b/c I may have a blood clot. Dr. Deendyal did not care and said I needed to be released and prescribed me Azithromycin Tablets USP. Which after I took It for 4 days and was not getting better. I then went to Saint Peters in New Brunswick and showed the doctor the paper work and what he prescribed me. He was furious and told me Dr. Deendyal prescribed me the wrong medicine and that there was no valid reason for the cat scan especially one with contrast. If you have the flu and you are pregnant it can lead to series complications. Any other hospital would of admitted me. Capital Health is 15 minutes from my house. Saint Peters in New Brunswick is 45 minutes I
I was taken to Capital Health by ambulance and from the moment I arrived my care was excellent! I never waited for a doctor or Bruce once during my 3 day stay there. I was in terrible pain and was treated very quickly and effectively in the ER all day and the doctor and nurses kept me informed all day long as to what was going on with my situation and what their intentions were along the way. The decision was made that I would be staying and I was taken to a beautiful private room with my own bathroom and flat screen television but better than that staff was there immediately and extremely knowledgeable and friendly and made sure I was comfortable. At all times throughout this process my pain was monitored and medicated. Despite the pain I was in I had a very pleasant hospital experience at Capital Health! Without a doubt the best hospital I have ever been to!
Everyone is so horribly rude. You come here to get taken care of, not berated and mistreated. In the year I've had to visit here, I've gotten mistreated by "security guards" who can't seem guard anything except for parking spots for physicians who can't be bothered to park in the physician parking 100 feet away. I've been yelled at for providing a 10 dollar bill to pay for my food because they didn't have enough change. How is that my fault? The number of negative reviews clearly show how nothing has been done about this rude and unwelcoming community. I still see the same people every single day because being a disgusting human being is how you keep your job at Capital Health. I feel bad for those who don't have a choice but to go here. At the end of the day, I hope you get treated better. As for those who are able to choose where they can go, please stay away from this place. It is disheartening and saddening that you have to struggle with what you do and deal with these people at the same time.
I had my son there in December of 2015 and you guys was so sweet and kind.
