WORST HOSPITAL EVER! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND GOING HERE TO ANYONE. HORRIBLE STAFF AND EVEN WORSE ADMINISTRATION. GOD AWFUL. THE FACT THAT THIS HOSPITAL ISN'T SHUT DOWN BY NOW IS BEYOND ME. THEY DESERVE NO... more STARS AND SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED BY DHS.
This is the worse place in the USA!!! I moved from another country, from Ukraine, and it seems we have much better medicine there! I had such a bad experience with the doctors, they will treat only your... more simptoms, nobody interesting to find a reson of your simptom, nobody interning to help you there. They also put fake gastational diabet to my friend, how we know, we just had glucometer and we checked it and it was 120 after 100ml of glucose but they told her she had 190, then they rechecked it and it was already normal. Please if you live there and looking for a good doctor, find another place, I don't recommend you this hospital at all!
I spent 2 weeks there this summer as a patient in the behavioral health unit. Most of these one star reviews seem to be people who came to the ER with things that aren't emergencies. I'm reviewing as someone... more who actually had to spend a lot of time there.
First off, the food was fantastic and the kitchen staff who take the orders were very patient and friendly. Keep up the good work!
The nurses were kind, helpful, and understanding. A few were way stricter than others, but it came from a place of caring. They all seemed to be great people!
One major problem I ran into in the BHU was the Internet policy. No Internet use allowed at all. This is understandable in most cases, but it actually ended up hurting me. We were shuffled from doctor to doctor, and some would barely explain anything. They'd try to put me on medications that alter your brain chemistry, but some gave me almost no information other than the general purpose and a list of side effects. I refused medication until I could get a friend to look it up and tell me about it over the phone. This probably ended up making my stay last longer than it needed to be.
They forced me to sleep on a mattress on the floor of an activity room at one point because they needed to keep an eye on me. They shouldn't force patients to do that! They need to find a better way to keep an eye on people at night.
The roommate situation got bad when they put me with a girl who was later deemed unfit to have a roommate. I was back on the floor because of it. For a place that is so expensive, the fact that I had to sleep on the floor multiple times is crazy.
I'd probably give 5 stars if I actually had a bed every night I was there.
