feedback about Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Rahway
Always felt the staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. Nurses are great! I am added to my review since I needed to get my mother to the ER. Such an attentive team of professionals. The Dr. was great, she communicated to us what was going on, what they were planning on and gave us options on care. We ended up having my mother admitted, and thank goodness she did. The ER Dr. made a call to another Dr. to see if he could come in on a Saturday, holiday weekend to see my mother. He said, yes and such a great Dr. too! Diagnosed and one procedure later, we could go home later that day. Thank you!!
I was at RWJ Rahway for an out patient procedure. From the moment I walked in til the moment I was rolled out to my car I seriously wondered if I was being punked. I had no idea a hospital staff could be so genuinely caring, attentive and professional. During my stay I was probably in contact with about 15 staff members, one more caring and friendly than the next. Can't say enough about my experience.
Please do not go here! The staff is poorly trained and they basically lie to get you to leave sooner.
I went to RWJ in Rahway only because my doctor is not available on weekends. I was experiencing high fevers, fatigue, & dizziness consistently for over a week. When I arrived, I was placed in the Express ER. My wait was extensive. I was placed by a nurses station where I heard nurses complaining about other patients and co-workers, talking about their vacations, and eating the free doughnuts they got in a break room nearby. After 2 hours, without any proper physical other than my temperature taken, I was given a strep test, urine test, & chest x-ray. I requested a blood test 3 times, but was denied by my PA, Meghan Womack. She told me, "We don't do that here. We are an emergency room and are not equipped to do blood tests." She sent me home telling me it was probably the flu. I spent the next few days continuing to suffer until my doctor's appointment that week. When I explained the treatment I received at RWJ hospital, my doctor informed me that they had no reason to take chest X-rays without giving me a full physical. I didn't even show physical signs for needing X-rays. My doctor also told me that blood tests can certainly be done in an emergency room and results can be received with in a few hours. My doctor did a blood test and my results came back with a very serious condition that needed immediate treatment.... Something that could have been treated sooner at RWJ if they would have done their jobs right.
I will never go back to this hospital again.
When I used to Volunteer at Rahway Hospital, it was always awesome and a blast to be there. Plus, I stayed for a couple days and got surgery and got my appendix removed. Thankfully to God, the procedure went well. I have to add that the food in Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Rahway cafeteria and kitchen was incredible. Furthermore, the nurses does take great care of you!!
Recently went to this hospital with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite for the past 4 days. Only my 2nd time ever to a hospital (appendix removal the first). I have never been so disappointed by a doctors lack of caring and snarky attitude. I had Dr Davis (male MD) walk in my room, ask me to point to the area of discomfort...and say "oh that is acid reflux ill have them give you some meds". He asked next to no questions, and was in the room less than 30 seconds. I tried to explain to him that I have had multiple pharmacists tell me not to take any Stomach Acid altering medications due to the risk of Clostridium Difficle infection recurring as I have had it in the past. When I mentioned this to Davis he said "Antibiotics cause c. Diff ...not antacids" Clearly this man has not kept sharp on recent medical research showing antacids greatly increase the risk of c. Diff recurring. He was so rude when I asked "why did I have multiple pharmacists tell me not to take these medicines?" ...he responded "I don't know I'm not a pharmacist" and walked away. This man clearly struck me as an ignorant, egotistical, young know it all who is unwilling to listen to a patient about concerns. He probably only wants to focus his attention to critical patients that are "More exciting" for him. I would NOT recommend this place.
