I have never been to Princeton Hospital and also never had a mammogram before but was referred to them by my Dr. I went on 11/8/18 and had this procedure done and within a week later I got 2 letters from... more them in the mail saying that they found something and i needed to call my Dr and get them to reschedule another appointment. I tried to get in touch with my Dr and in the meantime I received another letter saying the same thing that they found something. So over the Thanksgiving holidays i was worried and couldn't get in touch with anyone. I finally was able to talk to my Dr and they said they never received this letter saying this. So they called Princeton Hospital and was told that the letters were computer generated and that everything was ok. Just because the letters r supposedly computer generated they had me worried that I had breast cancer. I was told that I was going to receive another letter apologizing for it and the letter that I did receive was not apologizing for the mess up on THEIR end. I won't ever go back to Princeton Hospital cause what happened if they send out something saying that nothing is wrong when in fact there is a problem. It doesn't need to be computer generated....it needs to be handled by an actual person that can read the results. Uncalled for scaring someone that has never had one before like that
I had a horrible and horrific experience at this place . I’m a RN and I am in totally shock at the lack of care, compassion and concern for the health and well being of your patients. My experience... more started at admission/ registration. Below standard nursing care. I bet you all wouldn’t believe how loud and unprofessional the staff were in PACU ( after surgery recovery)and they we’re not speaking about patients. They were laughing, singing and shopping online the entire time I was in PACU. I had to beg my nurse to get me out of there. Someone went in my room and stole cash app card. If someone gave me permission I would clean house. Several people would be fired. Sadly ,it’s more than what I wrote.
I am late reviewing Princeton. I had a hip replacement in March of this year. I had good care and food for the most part! I only had a prob during the night when I had to buzz someone to help me to the... more bathroom. One night a very sweet gal named tiara helped me. She was the sweet girl who did my vitals at night. She was always very quiet and unobtrusive when she came in. Please give her great kudos!! My cousin Mary Jane Wesler works there. Great experience!!
