feedback about Women and Infants Hospital of Rhode Island
I'm shocked to see Women and Infants has so many one star reviews, and it seems like a lot of people are just angry and haven't actually had personal experiences with actually having a child here.
I've given birth to two babies here and many of the women here went above and beyond to help us in various situations before and during labor. They were compassionate, caring, and generally helpful. My second baby was born with an issue and our nurses and [I think] the floor nurse, named Mary, worked so hard to get me discharge in time to go over to Hasbro where he was moved for an urgent surgery. I had to be induced, and one of my antenatal nurses French braided my hair for me because I couldn't do it myself because of IV placement. Both experiences were so great for us and our babies were born safely and well cared for afterward.
Like any establishment, there are grumpy people and people who don't want to be there. I'm sure this has ruined some people's experience, but the few grumpy people we encountered, we just brushed it off and did our thing. Because of the nature of their work, they have a lot of rotating nurses come through, so if you don't click with them they may be gone next time you visit the hospital anyway. Which is also a con, if you do click with them!
Also, I'm sure our midwives from OBGYN Associates were so helpful and integral to our care and experience there. They are all so amazing, caring, and helpful!
I had my son at this hospital and from start to finish I was beyond grateful for everyone that I came in contact with. All nurses/doctors/staff were compassionate, professional and kind. The care I received during my labor and delivery/c-section was beyond words. I really wish I could find out the doctor's name [since it wasn't my own] and the RN's name that took care of me that day to really thank them. Also, the food was delicious.
Delivered both of my children there and I have had nothing but positive experiences during my stays. I did have one rude nurse overnight, but everything else was great. The way I look at it is, one rude nurse doesn’t mean the hospital is bad, or deserves 1 star. Which I feel like a lot of these reviews and reviews in general are based on.
If I could give Women & Infants Hospital more than 5 stars, I would. My wife gave birth there about 2 weeks ago. We found every person we dealt with on the medical staff to be professional, helpful, and compassionate.
Every decision made by the staff was well-considered. They did everything they could to ensure a successful outcome, and their communication skills were outstanding. I highly recommend this organization - and the cafeteria food is excellent, as well.
God bless this Hospital! My girlfriend was pregnant with 2 twin boys we are from CT and we went to Hartford Hospital and they were horrible they discharged her with preeclampsia. Finally we had enough because we weren't told she had it at all until this hospital got her records and this hospital acted so quickly and were so friendly to her and the family. The boys are in the best care here and they are so willing to answer any questions. Thank Y'all so much for everything y'all have done!
