A family member was hospitalized here for over a week for a serious medical illness, starting in the cardiac care unit and then on 5 west. The care he received from the doctors and nurses and respiratory... more therapists was outstanding. The interventional radiologists performed a high-skill emergency procedure with care and poise. The nurses were attentive to my family member's changing needs, ensured he was out of bed and walking, and gave him a list of his medications daily. His primary team (Dr. Bhadia/Riss and partners, who are also his PCP) did excellent preventative work in making sure his catheters and IV lines were removed promptly, preventing any hospital-related illnesses, and did a great job looking at the overall picture, as my family member has several acute issues. The kidney doctors (Drs. Meyer and Bruder) were phenomenal and thoughtful and called the family DAILY with updates -- including weekends (never have I experienced this before)! The Cardiology team (Dr. Salloum and partners, who are also his outpatient cardiologists) were also phenomenal and really coordinated care with the nephrologists (kidney drs) well. Every specialist (and he saw almost them all - rheumatology, pulmonary), were just awesome. I have to say, this experience has really shown me what great luck it is to have such an excellent community/regional hospital in right here in Brick. My family member could be cared for close to home in an excellent, professional and caring way, by providers who actually knew him and (whether or not they knew him) showed they really cared. The only area for improvement would be the CCU visiting hours, which I found to be a bit restrictive. Having cared for other ill family members who have been in many hospitals in this area and New York, this was the absolute best hospital experience we have had. Bravo and thank you!!!
My newborn baby was admitted to their critical care unit and I expressed some concern about his mouth being dry since he was not eating , the nurse told me they had some wipes or lollipops that she would... more check for to moisten the mouth. She walked away and I caught her bragging to some of the other nurses how proud she was of herself for "pulling that out of her ass to mom" She then, obviously, pretended to look for them. I get it you don't care about my baby it's not your baby this is just a job to you, but at least wait until I leave the room before you start mocking me for being concerned about my less than 24 hour old baby who has been unable to eat or drink since birth.
Went on a Monday at 4pm for an xray, had a 3 hour wait time with the most laxxed staff I've ever seen in an ER. A brand new ER facility with the wait time of a socialist system. Absolutely no sense of... more urgency for emergencies or the patients
