feedback about Lansdale Hospital
Ive come here several times for routine tests, fairly short wait time and staff is so nice! Love how quiet it is too, the lot is full but I guess it's so large it feels quiet and serene. Plantings our front are a nice touch, feels homey! Never any issues with getting accurate results in a timely fashion. Am glad this is so close by!
My 89-year-old mother was taken to the Abington- Lansdale Hospital two weeks ago and was given top-notch care from the moment we entered the ER until she was discharged 3 days later. Everyone including the techs, nurses, and doctors were attentive, patient and went above and beyond to make my mother feel comfortable and well cared for. Our questions were answered quickly and thoroughly. I can't thank everyone there enough for making this health scare a positive experience.
My experiences here have always been horrible in the past ten years.
I agree with alot of the comments posted here...staff is very unprofessional and rude. There is long wait times as well as no help with pain. No stars from me!
When my mother was terminally ill, this hospital treated her like garbage, and was about as unprofessional as you can imagine.
First of all, let me warn you about the Volunteer Medical Service Corps. ambulance company. My mother was hospitalized on four occasions leading up to her death, and each time, the VMSC refused to transport her to any hospital other than Lansdale. We already knew Lansdale had a bad reputation and she didn't want to go there. We didn't want her there, either. Apparently, there is a form you can fill out that legally obligates an ambulance company to transport you to the hospital of your choosing, but the paramedics refused to provide those forms or respect our requests.
That said, once inside of the hospital, the hospital took my mother off medications that had been helping her, and put her on other medications that worsened her condition. I watched as nurses forced a Bi-Pap mask back onto her face each time she would try to remove it so we could talk during our visits.
We asked them to transfer her to another hospital midway through each of her stays, and each time, they refused. During her third stay, Lansdale recommended hospice care, which everyone knows is a euphemism for assisted suicide. In order to save money, Lansdale Hospital advocated a course of action that ultimately led to my mother dying before she needed to.
Once under the care of hospice, a worker visited our home and performed a perfunctory psychological assessment requisite to prescribe a potentially fatal 30-day supply of an opioid pain-killer which they claimed was prescribed for treating a condition known as "Air hunger."
She told the doctors she didn't want to die, but they didn't care. They pushed hospice as the best option, and recklessly prescribed lethal drugs, just so that they could have my mother out of their hair.
In the days before her passing, a doctor with an Austrian accent and an irreverently cheerful demeanor notified my family and I that my mother would, "Never walk, talk, sing, dance, or have a conversation with us again." This doctor uttered this phrase in an eerily gleeful sing-song pattern of speech that hardly fit with the setting or the circumstances, which was profoundly, preternaturally, disrespectful.
If I am ever in grave need of medical attention and I somehow wake up in this hospital, I will summon the strength to drag my own bloodied body out of there and down the road to the next hospital before I spend one second in there that I don't have to.
Just spent 3 days in the hospital for an infection. Could not have been treated any better. Nurses were attentive and friendly, food host was unbelievably flexible, and all extended staff very helpful. I also overheard how nurses were dealing with elderly, severely ill patients in the rooms next to mine, and their patience and caring attitude was unbelievable. Special mention to my nurses Tammy, Vernice , Hiral and PA Theresa. Santos in food service was awesome. The hospital is working really hard to become a top class facility.
