They maybe deserve half a star.... that should be an option. The nurses are unwelcoming, stand offish, and seemingly disinterested in patient care. They act as if requesting help or information is a major imposition on their time. Personal conversations prioritized over patients. There seems to be only ONE dr. to oversee patients. WOW. I keep reading horrible review after horrible review spanning back months. How embarrassing. Please don't direct me to call a patient care line because it clearly is as ineffective as the staff.

Went in to ER with symptoms of a stroke. Waited over 5 hours to get a room. The only reason I’m giving 1 star is for the first Doctor I seen. I don’t know his name, but he immediately ordered tests, showed a tremendous amount of concern did an excellent neuro exam and admitted me for further evaluation. After he went off duty the physician (if you want to call him that) came in, asked what happened and as soon as I started talking he turned and walked out saying he was going to find me a bed. I had to spend the entire night on a gurney in the ER and the entire next day. It took over an hour each time I pushed my call light for help until a night shift nurse named Michael (a traveler) came in and was right there for me whenever I needed anything. They moved me to telemetry that evening after change of shift. I got so many different answers from staff that after 3 days we left completely confused. Too much detail to go into. Just wanted to basically say. I will NEVER go back there again.

I was at the emergency room for three hours for kidney stones. They did blood work and still had like eleven patients ahead of me. Had to drive to Delano hospital for treatment with "that pain" which took another hour. I never received treatment or results from my blood work yet I still had to pay. A rep calls me to make payment arrangements and never sends the bill. I just received a collection statement requesting full payment. I have no words for this experience. One star is too much.

I would give this establishment a no-star review if I could. The amount of women I personally know that have either actually DIED or suffered life-threatening symptoms after delivering their children here is outrageous and tragic. The labor/delivery nurses are completely at fault due to their delinquency. It is common for nurses at this hospital to leave gauze and other surgical objects inside of their patients after a surgery (e.g. all the women I knew that delivered here had gauze left inside of them and suffered infections and one actually lost her life). And to top all of this inadequacy off, the doctors/hospital affiliates (when informed of these issues) ride them off by stating that "nurses get confused/busy and can mess up, it is not a big deal". I suggest anyone interested in delivering their child here take heed of this warning and find yourself a decent hospital. I have no idea why the nurses at this establishment are so unorganized and lazy (like come on did they not learn the most basic rule that one should always take count of your surgical equipment prior to and after a surgical procedure in order to avoid leaving something inside the patient). I just wish that the hospital would uphold better standards/protocol when hiring/training their nurse staff. I get that it is very common to call out the "nurse" for being "half-witted" but I am sincerely concerned at the lack of care these individuals carry for their line of work. Seems like all they care about is a paycheck and the hospital simply cares about not getting sued. I would never try to demean the hard work that comes along with these medical jobs, but I truly do not think that they care about what they do and that is pathetic. Just because the patient does not fully understand their rights, does not mean one should take advantage of that. Shame on any of the employees that have taken part of or have been passive to these issues.

Came in to the ER after a self-inflicted suicide attempt the day before, to ask for a mental evaluation, waited around an hour and a half to speak to an assigned nurse (not the staff that did basic heart rate tests and allergy questions) and another hour and a half hour later to see an actual doctor-- I interrupted Dr. Safarian when I was upset and wanted to leave by that point because I didn't feel the clinic was appropriate, and then he threatened to withhold me "involuntarily for days" if I interrupted him again. Which I did, when I reacted in disbelief and asked "are you threatening me?" and I was kept there for several hours until they got fed up with me asking if what they were doing is legal or not. The doctor's first inclination was to order me not to interrupt him again because I was upset, and then move to forcibly keep me in the hospital "for days" without outside contact. The nurse that was assigned to me kept saying he'd get my clothes, but after the fourth time asking I peaked out the doorway and saw him having a casual chat with a receptionist. On top of negligence he was just flat out lying to my face, 20 ft away. At one point they took away the phone I asked for and refused to return it, denying my family who were waiting in the ER and only 'allowed' me to leave after coming VOLUNTARILY, if I saw the same doctor who threatened me to 'clear' me to leave. Awful place. Awful people. The only positive to that day was the crisis worker they had to bring in, which gave me a list of mental health clinics to go to for a mental health evaluation and a contact number to lodge a complain. I went the same day to the clinic. I hate the fact that my grandfather is currently sick in this same hospital and has to stay there.
