I went there in May...by ambulance...I am new to the area and unfamiliar with the hospitals...they did nothing...
my pressure was high...the paramedics took my pressure...and the doctor did nothing...my... more legs were badly swollen...and I was filled with fluid...my left foot was three times the size of the right...the doctor looked...never even touched me..I was clean...I had just taken a shower...my hair was still wet...she acted like I had the plague....but proceeded to pronounce me perfectly fine....I couldn't walk...I was in pain...and was having trouble breathing...most likely from a panic attack..I hope...and she said I as fine..
The next day I went to a hospital in Queens...and the took care of me...guess what...I wasn't fine....I will NEVER go there again....I don't even know if the woman I was dealing with was even a doctor...she NEVER said...and no name tag...the WORST hospital ever...
Despite good doctors and very good staff, this hospital still earned only a "D" on Leapfrog in 2017 after five years supposed improvements. Maybe less time on aesthetics and PR and more focus on quality... more of care is in order. Until you get this right, nothing else matters. This community deserves better and its not happening with the current administration. Hopefully the next administration will be more capable.
This hospital is a dangerous place to go if you have an emergency. Try to avoid this place by all means possible. If you have a real emergency I would advise staying away from this place. You may never... more walk out of this place. Brookdale Hospital reminds me of Gotham hospital from all the Batman movies. I had to take my employee here for huge cut on his leg, needed about 20 stitches.
The Doctors, nurses, and FDNY were more worried about how they can refer an attorney to sue. Horrible caring of a patient. They never gave him antibiotics and now its infected.
If I ever get injured in Brooklyn I would rather drive to Long Island to a better hospital so I can survive.
