The reviews here really confused me, I ended up at this hospital for major surgery, the staff was quite literally the most respectful staff I've ever experienced at a hospital, including my local HCP Kaiser who used to be my "good hospital benchmark", Southern California hospital of Hollywood seriously blew me away with how kindly and attentatively I was treated, while I can't speak for more than the surgical services and recovery, every staff member I interfaced with constantly asked if I needed anything, and got it within minutes for me. I stayed 5 days and my only regret is having to go back to Kaiser for my future carer after being spoiled by this place treating me so well.
They are responsible for the death of a dear friend of mine, due to their stupidity and negligence!
The stupid idiot nurses here are unqualified, even from their own stupid crappy countries.
This one poor patient had a pan with vomit in it by her bed, and none of the nurses would dump it out. I dumped it out for her in the toilet and flushed it, amd one of the nurses watched me do that, and took the pan from me. Why didn't you take it away like we had asked you 3 times before, you useless moron!?
This place should be shut down, and the staff should be rounded up and hanged.
They refuse to let people use the bathroom, saying it's their policy!!! Please note that in the Hollywood area there are no public restrooms, so if you have the need to go either too late at night or too early in the morning, you are out of luck. So watch your step in Hollywood, as people often are forced to use the street for their bathroom needs, and now you know why!
And they call themselves a hospital. What a joke!
A hospital is supposed to help and treat people's afflictions. And you refuse to allow even for physiological needs? Shame on you, the ones claiming such absurdity - like it's the hospital policy not to let people use the bathroom.
Of course, they also have more humane employees at this hospital. Unfortunately they are at the mercy of the ones that are not, because the ones with no respect for human needs are the ones in position of authority - supervisors, administrative staff, etc.
All in all, a hospital with no respect for the needs of their clients.
My daughter was transferred to this hospital from another emergency Room; they Would not feed her real Food . To transfer her back-to the facilities she came from they used a van that was not properly set up for transporting wheelchair Bound people. My daughter asked to be secured which they did not do-and during transport the wheelchair tipped over and she hit her Head, Driver wouldn't wear a seatbelt ,They called for another Van and transferred her In the middle of the route ,Horrible treatment of their patience all the way around!
With the exception of one very conscientious nurse, the other staff seemed remote and misinformed about my reason for coming here for aortic aneurism tests and lower back CT scans. At some point a referring doctor had mistakingly said I was suffering from severe abdominal distress and the staff would not listen to me for two days causing me to be denied food and drink on the basis of an incorrect diagnosis. Finally when my real reason for admission was understood, appropriate tests were performed, though considerable delays caused me to be deprived of meals yet again. After five long days I was discharged with no problems detected. I endured starvation, painful blood draws, the usual uncomfortable IV and antibiotic drips, and a strange hospital diet that gave me the runs for three days. You are on your own here. You must advocate for yourself clearly and forcefully and often or you will be buried.
