I fell down wooden stairs,don’t remember how!
I was visiting family in Shelter Island. Call 911
They were there in 5 mins. They took me over on the ferry.
Nurses and docs attended to me right away
I had a bad head trauma, they had a scan done on my brain, no internal, so he cleaned and stapled 4 inch gash on Rt side of head in no time.
Wonderful nurses and Doctor!
October 23 I experienced extremely severe lower back pain. At 3 pm the pain was so intense I went to the Emergency Room at ELIH. The check in staff were open and friendly and quickly completed my admission papers. I was turned over to the ER nurse, Angela who took history and vitals. Quite efficiently and with compassion towards my pain. Christopher Edelstein was in charge of ER desk and listened intently and informed me of the possibile conditions. He immediately ordered a technician to perform a CT scan of my body. Knowing my family and medical history of aortic aneurysms he ordered further testing. The discomfort from the procedure was apparent to the Tech and he tried his best to comfort me. Christopher then ordered ultra sound testing. Laura Nagida performed a series of ultra sound tests which required considerable time. All thru these procedures Laura was very very patient and understood the pain I was experiencing.Her professionalism truly showed off her great ability to keep a pained patient comfortable. start to finish I want to thank all the ER staff with their technicians. Fortunately the condition did not require overnight stay at the hospital. Elliot Levine
Made me feel at ease about my medical problem,Happy staff caring they listened to me ,made me feel important.
My daughter Brittany died in their ER In Feb. 2018, and they never even tried to call me. I don't understand it because she had ID on her. I don't even know if they did everything possible for her to save her. I was unable to see my girl for the last time . She was in a hospital dying and her father and I never even knew it. They even wrote on the report that they could not "find" me. That is not true. She had my sister's number in there and her address. I have to live with this the rest of my life that she was lying dead in that hospital w/out me knowing it. They probably assumed she was some junkie . I am going to tell you right now that she was not. Never assume anything about your patients. The Greenport police also made HUGE incorrect assumptions about her that night that they reported to the hospital. How dare they. I hope that that did not affect the care she got that day, but I can't help wondering if it did. If they looked up her name they would find she had never been in trouble with the law for drugs or ANYTHING else for that matter.
We were at ELIH emergency room Saturday night. They saw my husband immediately who was having a sever peanut allergy reaction. The CAT scan technition was sleeping at the hospital and got a report back within 5 mins. They administered the drugs to calm the reaction and called in a surgical team who all traveled very far in the middle of the night. Despite my husband arguing not to have a breathing tube inserted they talked him into it (which was no easy task) and saved his life. They did a tracheostomy and then transferred him to Stony Brook. Everyone from the ER doctor, nurses, technician, surgical team, ICU nurse were such professionals and all around lovely people. We will be forever thankful to all of them. I sleep easier knowing ELIH is our local hospital.
