I will rate this facility a 5 Star only because I can't give it a 10.
My wife Josephine spent 23 so days in ICU and the treatment and care was so good it was beyond belief.
I believe they are... more the reason she is alive today. I hope that if l have to go to the hospital l can go there.
Thank you for a job well done.
Went to the ER last night as my husband was feeling horrible; fever, chills, vomiting, sore throat and pain all over his body. We were there a total of 2 hours for them to swab him for the flu. They told... more him it wouldn't take long but it took about an hour for the results. After waiting for about 45 minutes, I went to find the nurse to see if the test had come back. I heard her yelling in the pod, where everyone sits, did the flu test come back on my patient? Another lady said negative. - I went back to the room as I figured they'd come in to give the results. After waiting another 30 minutes and no one ever coming in ONCE to check on him, I went back to the pod to find medical assistant (or nurse) playing on her computer looking at pictures. Really? So I approached her and asked for an update and was told they doctor will be in to speak to you all soon. After, at least, another 30 minutes the doc came back in to state the test came back negative but since he still shows signs of the flu, here's some medicine for the pain and for the vomiting. They didn't test him for anything else. When I asked about another test or if it could be anything else, he said no. That even though the test was negative, it's only right like 50% of the time. (what's the point of the test then?) My husband was miserable last night. This morning he woke up with his throat even worse and HUGE white puss spots all over his tonsils. I asked him if they tested him for strep and he said no. He called the hospital to inform them and they told him to go to Urgent Care. So, they wasted our time yesterday not taking my husband's illness serious enough to actually diagnose him correctly and then send us somewhere else because they are incapable of functioning their own jobs correctly. The doc literally spent less than 3 minutes with him. This hospital should be ashamed of their ER department. Last time we were here, about 3 years ago, they were amazing. Sad to see how downhill it's gone. I do not recommend this place if you care about your health.
** Update: He went to Slidell Memorial hospital where they did a FULL workup on him- chest x - ray, flu and strep test. They were attentive to him the whole time he was there and kept him updated as needed. He wound up testing positive for strep. Thanks Slidell Memorial Hospital for caring about your patients. We'd really be a sick and broke community if all we had available was Ochsner.
ER has idiots working in it. The hospital is great otherwise but stand clear from the idiots. The MD doesn't even know that Tylenol doesn't contain ibruprofen for starters.... I will just leave it at that.... more
