I’ve only been here one, but 4 years ago. My side of the eye and mouth weren’t closing. A program I was in took me to the ER. The Dr (forget his name) looked at me! And say it was proably Bell’s palsy. (Temporarly damage of a nerve in face casting temporary Parylasis to one side of face). The wait was short and parking was easy! I was in and out quick. And the palsy ended up ending within the month. I did follow up as asked, with our primary Dr from Kasier, who also agreed with Chomps diagnosis and helped with the process.
Good expirence!

Fortunately I was only driving a friend for a blood test. What I saw was distressing. The many conveniently located entrances are blocked. Water fountains and bathrooms not obviously marked. Lots of attitude.
I was simply looking for some water for my dog's water bowl. This place is not visitor friendly. Since they have no clue about how to accommodate visitors, I question their treatment of patients as well. Do not expect to find a convenient parking place, and the round-abouts are poorly designed. This place has many bad reviews. Salinas Valley Memorial is better.

I am not too happy with my last visit. I was there today at 1:45 pm and it wasn't that bad of a wait but it wasn't too clean. I had to clean around my chair and the restroom in the ER before using. The nurse @ triage was helpful and made me feel like I was a Priority.

Short review: This hospital should have their "baby friendly" accreditation completely removed. Terrible experience and will absolutely never deliver another baby here.

Long review: It has taken me quite some time to be able to digest the experience I had at CHOMP delivering my baby. My labor & delivery actually was very smooth thanks to the help of my doula. However, my daughter was born with fluid in her lungs that required immediate care. Within 24 hours, the fluid had cleared her lungs. However, during that time, she developed a very mild case of jaundice. They wouldn't allow my daughter to stay in the room with us on a blanket, and made my choice to breastfeed absolute Hell on earth. They INSISTED on feeding her donor milk & formula with absolutely no evidence based reasoning, only giving me 10 minutes max at a time to feed my baby every three hours. At one point I demanded her chart and found that she had been given donor milk multiple times without my consent or knowledge. The nurses would physically snatch my daughter out of my hands while feeding her and shove a bottle into her mouth. I even had one nurse poke and prod at my breast while saying, "It doesn't seem like she's getting anything, time for me to feed her." It was devastating, humiliating, and truly made me feel as though I couldn't possibly breastfeed my child. On day three of this nightmare, my husband and I begged the nurse (unsure of her name, elderly woman with PHD on her badge) to let us have the baby in our room... she proceeded to tell the doctor we were trying to kill our baby! The doctor called us on our room phone SCREAMING, saying we were putting our daughter's life in danger by not listening to them. All because of this one nurse from Hell. The next morning of our nightmare stay at CHOMP, we were finally told that we could take our baby home. I could not believe it. It was the best day of my life.

This only scratches the surface of the issues we had while we were staying at CHOMP. They forced us to move rooms in the middle of our stay to free up "labor rooms", and NO ONE used that room over the next three days. They only delivered us four of the 16 meals we were supposed to get while we were there, and two of those we couldn't eat because of allergies that were ignored. We were billed for every meal anyway.

The only bright spot in our whole experience was Amy, a nurse that was so kind, so thoughtful, so compassionate that I memorized her schedule during my stay and got so excited when she brought us our baby. I have not forgotten her and doubt I ever will. She would let my daughter stay with me longer than the 10 minutes I was "allowed", and she could tell how painful and unnecessary the experience was for us. I hope she reads this and knows that she is absolutely phenomenal!

I had a severe almost fatal infection. I was taken in immediately and underwent surgery to remove this infection. I had 2 surgeries performed by Dr Verlenden and his awesome team. I was in ICU for 2 days. Due to the incredible Dr Verlenden, my life and my leg was saved. I was in the hospital for 16 days. My stay at the hospital was fabulous. The nurses, the assistants, the doctors, the staff, the janitors, the food, the harp player, the beautiful paintings and many many Christmas Trees provided by this hospital made my stay memorable. Also, a shout out to the awesome Dr Silk and his Wound Care staff and fellow doctors. Dr Silk performed a skin graft that 4 months later has completely healed. I can only say that Dr Silk and Dr Verlenden saved my life. Their bedside manner was impeccable and caring. Not one day went by without Dr Verlenden updating me on my care and progress. Thank you CHOMP! Thank you to all the Doctors especially Dr Verlenden and Dr Silk. Thank you to the wonderful and compassionate nurses. Thank you too all the staff. I am forever thankful and grateful!
