feedback about St John's Episcopal Hospital at South Shore
I was taken to St. John's emergency room in an ambulance after passing out in a doctor's office. Fainting was scary, I was feverish and quite out of it, and I'm generally afraid of hospitals. The PA, the nurses, and the doctor were absolutely amazing. They all took the time to explain what they were doing and why, and to make sure I understood what was going on. They cared a lot about my comfort, not only asking me if I was comfortable but actively doing things if they saw I might not be (helping me orient myself better/ pull myself up on the hospital bed, providing medicine to ease soreness in my throat so that I could swallow, taping the IV drip so it wasn't as easy to mess up if I moved my arm, not hesitating for a second to gently take off my shoes for an examination when I couldn't reach them on my own, and so many more examples). They were also quite nice to my parents, who were very scared after seeing me pass out. The emergency room was neat and the patients around me were treated respectfully. I honestly won't forget that team.
This review has been updated. My brother passed away in this hospital, I'm never going to get over the fact that no one contacted my family to let us know that he was there! I call and they tell me to talk to Admitting and Patient Relations. I spoke with a Gaurady Antoine who said he was looking up some information but never got back to me when I sent a certified letter to them most recently. We have the right to know the cause of death, I still don't know how he died. The only thing people care about is money💰 not saving lives! How do they sleep at night? He said the health proxy my brother's friend is the one listed as next of kin. I told him he is not! Me and my sisters are next of kin. If there was any foul play in my brother's passing, God will take care of it! And don't leave me your stupid we care messages on Facebook when people are giving you bad reviews speaking the truth about their situations!
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.
Best hospital of Far Rockaway.. The doctors and nurses are very nice and caring.. i had excellent experience in this Hospital..
If I could post negative stars here I would...my mom passed away in the emergency room...we did not know she had passed when we came in...the person behind the desk said "yes go in she's in bed...." We walked in and she was in a body bag...no preparation at all and the hospital couldn't care less...completely insensitive...no doctor came to talk to us and the nurse in the room at the time we walked in just ignored us...and completely incompetent when it came to ordering an autopsy...unfortunately, my mother was in respiratory distress and cardiac arrest and this was the closest hospital to the rehab facility...avoid this hospital at all cost...the absolute WORST I have ever seen in a hospital...and we have been to a good few of them ugh...the experience still makes me ill thinking about it...I couldn't imagine a hospital could be this bad...unfortunately I can't rate the doctors because none came to talk to us...I have to hope and assume that they really did all they could to save her but I have no proof of that...given the experience and their attitudes...it's not surprising that I'm skeptical of that...again STAY AWAY if you can...oh and you will also notice below the PATHETIC automated response they put after these Google responses..."so sorry you had an unpleasant experience" they don't even read the reviews...SHUT THIS HOPSITAL DOWN!!!
