feedback about East Jefferson General Hospital
Professional service and a good facility. This is a large hospital that's very busy; they serve a large group of J.P. residents. However, the main driving entrance can be dangerous. There are too many fast drivers that have only " PARKING" on their minds.
This hospital was designed for cars. The parking lot and the whole campus is dangerous to walk around with plenty of bad/fast drivers and I don’t know how someone in a wheelchair would get around. The layout of the buildings is also very confusing, so you’ll want to get here early for your appointment.
Services are fine. I’ve seen two doctors here and they are professional, courteous, available and informative. I guess that’s what matters most in a hospital.
I know it has taken some time for me to write this review but here you go! East Jefferson is the absolutely the worst hospital to have a baby! I have had to deliver two baby here and to me it was one of the worst! The only reason I delivered twice here is because my OBGYN is approved for this hospital and the others are really far from where I stay so I really had no choice. My first son, I almost had him on the floor of the ER after explaining to them that I needed to be seen and immediately, instead they wanted to give me a questionnaire before I could be seen. Literally within five minutes my son was born. Mind you this is after they sent me home twice that day telling me that I was not ready to have my baby. Secondly and my worst experience, I went to the hospital in labor and waited for the anesthesiologist, once he finally got to me it took him 5 hours, yes you read that right, 5 hours to get my epidural in. It was to the point, I told him not to worry about it and I would have it natural, like I was force to do when I had my first experience with them. He continued to poke and dig into my back, which was worst than the birth pains. He finally got the epidural in and within 30 minutes I was pushing to have my son. I hate East Jefferson and would not recommend this hospital to ANYONE!!!! Especially if you are having babies please do not do it!
Only reason I’m giving a one star is because tonight I brought my son in there in the psych nurse that was on staff tonight literally didn’t listen to a thing I had to say after I was told by the other site Nurse that he could come back and I have protective custody order ridiculousDid nothing to help so if something happens to my son they are totally at fault
I literally tell people not to send me to this hospital unless I'm dying. My credit took a severe hit because of this place. I had a payment plan in place, but their system didn't register it and they sold my debt to a collection agency. Even months later when they resolved the problem. my credit was still screwed up.
Also, the emergency room is the size of a shoe box. When my brother went there, they had him and several other patients with IV's in a small room that seemed like it was designed to be a hallway.
