Was admitted through the emergency room
four nights. Was taken back quickly even though they were busy and the pa who saw me and resident from
Plastic surgery was great as well. The nurse left something to be desired in the ed. On 7t North the nursing care was good along with the inpatient care through the surgery team. One thing for improvement communication could be improved.
My family member had 2 weeks of complicated inpatient cancer treatment. This is a huge facility but the care was personalized and effective. The medical team communicated well. The nurses and doctors were responsive and compassionate. Everyone was careful about cleanliness. They were good about keeping us informed. Parking is a hassle but you get a discount. Food is average. Overall excellent care. We were impressed.
My father hasn’t eaten in 17 hours and that timeframe was not prescribed. We arrived for his surgery appointment at 11:30 and it’s 17:30 now. We’ve yet to be seen by the anesthesiologist and lead surgeon. While the surgery they performed in the past was phenomenal medically, it seems as if the surgeon and his team cannot meet their commitments on time today ( to an extreme degree) and that is poor medical practice. Also, despite my father not eating or drinking in 17+ hours, no one who could give the go ahead noticed to give him an IV. Come on y’all. You’re Emory Medicine! You can do better than this. (...so we hope)
My husband had brain surgery in Oct. He spent 20 days in ICU and 10 days in private room. The whole experience was like time in hell. No one communicates with family unless you beg them to. The bill says he saw at least 20 doctor's and consultants. I personally spoke to maybe 4 and not daily. Some of the nurses were caring and some were not. I took more care of him in private room than a nurse. I prayed hard to get him out. Rehab in our home town got him up and going whereas Emory wouldn't get him up. Would not recommend this hospital.
May be the only adequate hospital in the area, but it compares unfavorably to hospitals in other regions I've gone to. Staff is largely apathetic and wait times are long except in cases of severe emergency. I was kept waiting for a long time in the ER after having experienced bleeding from a procedure performed at Emory. Look at hospitals in other states if you have the option.
