feedback about St John's Episcopal Hospital at South Shore
A double edged sword with doctors like some are nice and some arnt but they saved my life and my baby. There's a lot I can say about the stink smell of the bathrooms on the first floor although I have seen massive good change that I like in the emergency area. After a visit today I had to take a very large piss jar on the bus in a see through bag to bring back to the hospital... Embarrassing for me, it would have been nice to have bags handy that are not see through.
My grandmother went to the ER on Saturday, she fell and the ambulance took her to St. John hospital. They told her that she broke her hip and she needs surgery. My grandmother has been in the ER since Saturday they never put her in a room. They also made her sign papers while she was highly sedated on pain medication, she had no idea she was signing papers to have surgery done on Tuesday. I want my grandmother transferred from this hospital and they are giving us a hard time.
My grandmother has eaten anything for 4 days, they don't give her medication that she needs to take. There is an intern Dr. Braun, all she talks about is how they order all these expensive test for my grandmother to do and how much is costing. This hospital DOES NOT CARE FOR THE PATIENT THEY CARE FOR THE $$$ THEY GET FROM THE GOVERNMENT. This hospital is for patient who does not have any loves to help them. Because instead for you to get better you get worse. My grandmother is getting worse and they DON'T CARE AT ALL. She does not want to have surgery and they forcing her to have the surgery by not transferring out of this hospital.
Sitting here in ER for over 3 and a half hours. I wouldn't take a sick dog here to be put down go someplace else... Just saw the bullship response they put underneath my comment have to 4 and a 1/2 hours of waiting in the emergency Room to be seen I left and drove myself to LIJ which I was greeted warmly and was seen and taken care of within an hour and 20 minutes.. I really feel that the nurse that night did not take my matter serious nor did he care to help me or even put me in line to be seen when I ask the desk they told me the nurse never even gave me a number.. It was only 3 of us in the waiting Room yes I understand the ambulance comes in but as I sat there I watched people come in and get taken before me I really feel I was almost discriminated upon
next to Brookdale hospital in Brooklyn, This is the worst hospital I ever experienced in my life. The only hospital in far Rockaway after they close peninsula hospital. You're treated by student doctors. The only time you see a tenured doctor is during rounds. The West Indians staff at the ER and the clinics are the worst. Very nasty attitudes when you ask them for something they act like you're bothering them. The only good thing about this hospital is the inpatient dialysis center. Which is run by loyal dedicated hardworking Filipinos, with excellent professionalism and great work ethics. Other than that the hospital Services stinks all the way up to the security guards. (Ignorant security staff) this hospital is famous in the rockaways, for checking in but you don't check out. (Morgue) whenever I get sick and I'm in need of medical assistance. I take a cab all the way to South Nassau, potential patients beware if you don't want to die don't go to St John's. St John's Will give you a one-way ticket to the resurrection.
This hospital is definitely not a place to send your sick love ones. The staff is very unprofessional and they can care less about your well being. This is my mom second visit within 4 days. I asked the doctor to please treat her. They gave her a steroid and sent her home. Here we are back 4 days later with the same problem. You don't see actual doctors. They have medical students caring for you. Please dont bring your elderly person here. The state needs to shut this hospital down.
