feedback about Sibley Memorial Hospital
The ER room is a death trap and a disgrace to the medical profession. Avoid at all costs. Go to another ER. Can't be worse. I went to be rehydrated because my doctor told me as a result of having had stomach virus that I had recovered from and had no fever. but some ill-trained, incompetent masochistic nurse decided to make me wait 3 hours, although I registered on line where it promised out in 30 minutes, for a bed to make me an inpatient to get sicker, since everyone in ER was coughing, feverish, contagious and it was unsanitary. after 1.5 hours I asked for some water, recall I was dehydrated, and this masochistic nurse refused me a glass of water! I demanded to get permission from another nurse who was better trained. Only after waiting 3 hours when I was getting sicker and was walking out the door, suddenly a doctor was available and they physically prevented me from leaving, fearing malpractice and wanting to collect an absurd amount of money for a simple rehydration. The doctor immediately agreed that nurse overstepped the her authority, was incompetent and initially being refused a water was an abomination. They received hundreds of dollars from my insurance but on principle and to call attention to such incompetent and unsatisfactory service refuse to pay the $90 that I owed and wrote to the president of Sibley explaining why, along with the accounting office. The wasted no time to send a collection agency to whom I am sending this same response. I pay all legitimate bills for service rendered. Their treatment and service was unconscionable and does not deserved additional payment from me, especially since the president asked me for donations besides. This ER room should be shut down until properly trained staff knows their job and not render treatment bordering malpractice.
Have been waiting for two and a half hours!! Gives a new meaning to the word ‘energency’!
Today, I came to the emergency room with a terrible throat infection. Though I knew what the problem was, the medication given before hand by another doctor was not strong enough. Not only did I have practically no wait in the emergency room, but the staff moved swiftly ad efficiently; while still being caring and compassionate. I was seen by Dr. Coleman, and my nurse was Susanne, I also had blood drawn by a nurse named Isobel. They gave me exactly what I needed and guided me every step of the way. They all did a wonderful job! I highly recommend this hospital for emergency care. The John Hopkins medical system is also very impressive and worth your while if you are seeking quality medical care. All around 5 stars! Hopefully I will not be back soon, but in case I do need immediate or serious medical care, this is where I will be going.
Fantastic ER service! Professional, courteous staff. Quick through triage and to see the docs (I saw four, one of whom drove in from home). Facilities are modern and quiet. Good privacy. Good food. Nurses were lovely people. One ER nurse even brought my wife dinner. I can't thank him and the staff enough for helping us. Thank you!
I was born in Sibley Hospital in 1942 -- at the old building in NE DC. Since then, I have watched Sibley grow to one of the finest hospitals in the entire DC area. It moved to its present location in 1963, and has continued to expand. Today it has a beautiful new state-of-the-art building, a large medical offices facility, and is adding yet another special building for treatment of those needing radiation, etc. for cancer.
The care given to those I know who have needed it is second to none.
The newborn-baby center is fabulous, with its loving and complete care for healthy babies and those with special needs.
I highly recommend Sibley Hospital for anyone of any age desiring the best care possible!
