This is by far One of my favorite hospitals for kids! My sister had her baby here and the treatment was great. The doctors are really professional and the emergency room is busy but they always do their best to get the patient to see the doctor.
A friend of mine had 200 to 300 dollars on him while he was admitted! He went to the ICU and the money was stolen! Definitely will be filling a complaint!
My son was born here via C-section in November 2018 after 32 hours of labor. Absolute worst nightmare from start to finish. Five terrifying and excruciating attempts to insert the epidural. Then the anesthesia during surgery COMPLETELY WORE OFF and they had to tie my arms to the table because I was grabbing at my abdomen, panicking and screaming bloody murder. Those are my first memories with my son, thinking I was going to die and never meet him, and the sound of both of us crying and screaming.
Then in recovery, my husband and I didn't sleep more than 30 min. to an hour at a time for FOUR DAYS STRAIGHT because people NEVER STOPPED coming into our room for every ridiculous reason, like CHANGING A LIGHTBULB in the bathroom 2:00AM or refilling our water pitcher at 7:00AM after asking them over and over again to leave us alone. It was absolutely maddening being almost completely deprived of sleep AFTER A TRAUMATIC SURGERY – I've never be so exhausted in my life, I felt like I was going crazy.
My son had jaundice, and instead of just treating it with the light therapy, they pricked and squeezed blood out of his heels a total of 14 TIMES over the course of several days to "check his levels." WHY???? They were high, why not just give us the damn lights????
Then to top it all off, after many, many painful attempts to breastfeed and finally giving in to formula feeding (which they were adamantly opposed to), and feeling completely defeated, a nurse came in and grabbed the formula bottles off the shelf and said, "I need to hide these, we're a breastfeeding hospital. This looks bad on the nurses." I was livid.
After all that, they wouldn't give us even a dime off our bill. We're paying them $3,550.00 out of pocket after our insurance paid $34,575.00. I wouldn't wish this experience on any mother. If you can somehow give birth someplace else, FOR GOD'S SAKE, DO IT. This hospital is a torture chamber full of inept and callous a-holes.
I like to thank all the staff at the hospital for the way I was treated thy we're really good to me while my stay. I was there for three days and it was an experience I never had before.
My dad died here, admitted for shortness of breath that worsened and didn't get better despite their interventions. I have doubts about how well they took care of him because he wasn't in-network and there were additional things that they could have tried to fix his breathing, which we didn't even see them try.
I requested medical records from them. The CD had the wrong birthdate and wrong medical record number, and they only had text, no radio imagery (x-rays etc) even though I requested for everything.
The nurses are generally good and nice. It's mostly the doctors in ICU and admin that I still don't trust.
