feedback about John Dempsey Hospital
Enjoy the attentive staff and engage with other people in the waiting room. Put away your cell phone for a while and recall what it was like when we used to interact with each other on a personal level.
Doctors and nurses are really becoming rather rude. Not much empathy for the sick. I heard a staff member in another room going”back and forth” loudly with a patient. Patients just want to be informed. The kindest nurse there, was the nurse who pointed me to the exit.
Went to the hospital with a known problem in need for immediate help. I told them what my problem was prior to them admitting me. They then told me what my problem was (which I already told them) and then they told me they couldn’t help me there. Fantastic service....for a $1,200 medical bill. Next time tell me you can’t help me before you f*** me.
Horrible experience a few years ago with ER dept. Went in gagging and clearly explained I had been eating steak between gagging....nothing would go down or up! A ten year old could have deducted that I had a piece of steak stuck in my esophagus. Instead, I was drugged with anti-nausea meds to the point that I couldn’t think or talk. (I NEVER claimed to be nauseous !). After a night of X-rays and resting my head on a plastic pillow with no cover on it (the day nurse noticed and helped), I was told that it was probably psychological and they were sending me home. At this point, the med that pretty much made me incoherent had warn off some so I insisted they call GI. Of course, I had steak stuck and they had to perform general surgery! Really! With no medical experience, I could have told them that 15 hours before they drugged me! Horrible experience......incompetent ER doctors.
My doctor appointment keeps getting cancelled. Time to move on and hopefully find someone who cares. Very uncaring attitude towards patients. You can tell they don't like there jobs. It is very clear that they hate there jobs. Hate is a strong word. The hospital is worse. Overall a bad place. Do yourself a favor and stay away.
