I was transported to this ER since it's the closest to my house and I received the WORSE care by the nurses and doctors! I've been here before and things have gone smoothly, but the night of January 14-15,... more 2018, was the absolutely TERRIBLE! NONE of the nurses and doctors were attentive to me and other patients. They didn't even give me a proper diagnosis that I later hate to treat on my own because they were absolutely USELESS!
The worse part on top, they have metal detectors in the ER and other parts of the hospital where as other hospitals in SF, don't!
It didn't help that when I was being transported in, the EMT's said to another that there were new staff that night of doctors and nurses. I saw SOOO many doctors and nurses either sitting around doing NOTHING or chit chatting personal stuff around patients. It was VERY unprofessional! They treated the ER as it was like Grey's Anatomy or some other medical TV show, not how a hospital should be operated!
Here are some photos of the 5 needle stabs they gave me that night! I look worse than a heroine addict with these marks!
After labs, an early EKG, and a CT, they just said my white blood cells were a "little" high but saw no worries. Also, they didn't even treat my chest pains that I developed while in there. What was my diagnosis from them? Nothing. ...That's what happens when they allow dumb-asses to deal with life and death situations!
My sister is a patient here and she is happy with her doctor and the care she is receiving. A really unfortunate thing happened. My sister spent hours preparing for surgery only to be told that the surgery... more had to be postponed because there wasn't a room available in ICU. The surgery had to be scheduled a week later since the doctor only performs surgery on Tuesdays. What a disappointment this was for my sister and all of us who care about her and love her.
If you haven't heard, the parking is crazy here. On my second visit here, I decided to take public transportation from the East Bay and it was so easy. I took BART to the Powell Street station and transferred to the N Judah Muni which was in the same station and then got off the bus at Kirkham Street. I walked in to the garage building, took the elevator to the street level, and walked across the street to the hospital. It took about 50 minutes including the wait for BART and Muni. Easy peasy! I recommend public transportation. Don't waste time looking for parking on the streets and in the full/crowded parking lots.
