This hospital is the worse one around... doctors don't care about whether you're in pain and don't answer to no! Truly shocking that a patient is treated like that. I do give one star for the nurses and my x ray tech who were all very nice
This past weekend I was in the Hamptons and had an accident at 1:30am. I burned my feet badly at the beach. We drove a 1 hour to get to the Southampton Hospital ER. When I got there, they took my information right the way and asked me to wait. I have a second-degree burn on my foot and NO one asked me if I was in pain, if I want any medication or anything.
Well, 1 hour and 30 minutes past and I decided to ask the front desk what was going on and if they actually have people working. He said they were doing their best and they had just four ambulances getting into the ambulatory. I walked to the ambulatory, which is next door, and they did not seemed to have anything going on there as you can see from my pictures. In addition, two RN were just smoking outside by that time. Disrespectful!
Went back inside with my foot in flame and told the front desk there was not emergency in the ambulatory and this was unacceptable. He said the ambulances had just left! I wanted to laugh but the pain I was feeling did not allow me. I was literally sitting in front the door the whole time and I believe my wife or me would have noticed four ambulances coming in and out. They JUST did not care about me or the other woman sitting there with a baby. Another 30 minutes past and I left without any care.
The next day I went to this great and caring clinic in Easthampton and finally got some treatment to my feet. They should change the hospital administration or close the door as soon as possible. If you require care, please do not go to the hospital. This place should even be open!
I am sharing some picture to proof my words. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!
Had procedure scheduled for Ambulatory Endo. Called prior to procedure date to confirm demographics, insurance, etc. On day of procedure, Patient Registration reviewed information. Registrar very professional & friendly. Taken to room, all personnel on floor very friendly. R.N.'s efficient, professorial and friendly. Made sure I was comfortable and asked if I had any questions.
Was taken into Endo suite, R.N. assisting introduced herself, asked if I had any questions (none); Dr. Levitsky (anesthesia) explained his role and the medication he would administer (I.V. push). Dr. Georgopoulos came in & checked that I was the right patient, for the right procedure (which I was). Then I was put to sleep.
Woke up, wheeled across the hall to my room, given coffee (yeah!) Dr. G came in to discuss what he found and answered any questions I had.
This hospital is still the caring "neighborhood" hospital it was years ago, but has kept up with the times and technology of medicine.
I would not hesitate to use Southampton again.
Generally pretty good response in emergency. Longer term wards are ok. Food is what you'd expect in a hospital.
I just want to express my gratitude towards Southampton hospital maternity ward. I thank all the staff at Southampton hospital from registration, hospitality and the maternity staff for being so pleasant while my daughter and all the family awaited the arrival of our son, grandson, nephew and great grandson. I thank you all and wish the very best of God's blessings to all of you.
