I was called unprofessional by some lady because I said “ wow this sucks what should I do” because someone called me and scheduled an interview but when I called a day before everyone in the hospital... more couldn’t find me in the system so In fact I had no interview. What happen to people being empathetic for other people don’t you see that I was frustrated because I thought I had an interview with you guys and then a day before I call and I’m being told that I don’t. Like out of all the things you could of said that’s what you chose. I’m a nice girl and I’m very patient I got transferred over 10 times and when I finally get frustrated I get called unprofessional .
Terrible experience. The doctor was very disrespectful and unprofessional. Took my mother because of severe abdominal pain that she been having for 2 weeks and nothing was helping her. She felt very dizzy,... more lightheadness, nausea and was having back pain as well. They refused to give her a bed to lay on because they claim that the beds are only for cardiac patients only. Which blew me away because the patient next to my mom was laying on a bed for motion sickness. Another patient was on a bed dont know for what reason however there was 3 other empty beds. They had my mom on a bed for a split second and told her to get up and sit down on the chair that was sitting on before. Also, because it is the first time that I've been to a hospital and refuse to give a bed to a patient because its only for cardiac patients? That's ridiculous. When we informed them that we are leaving the doctor was like "you will have to pay out of pocket because the insurance will not pay" yet as a patient we do have a right to refuse when we are not recieving proper treatment. I feel like my mother was being discrimated because she does not speak English and is Latina. But my mom works very hard and has a union job so yes she does have excellent health insurance. I hate to say it because i am not that type but anything is possible nowadays. Never ever going to this hospital for any reason.
I really like this hospital cafeteria. I'm a medical student at a top 5 ranked institution/research hospital and, man, to get anything healthy around there... more -- you are probably looking at $10 for a salad and $3 for a slice of cake. I have literally never bought an entree plate because the food is lousy and overpriced.
At Winthrop University Hospital, you're looking at entree plates for ~$5. Furthermore, the hospital actually lets medical students eat a $5 meal every day for free. When you're paying like $45k in tuition every year and you spend 12h+ every day and sometimes weekends at the hospital, it's nice to know that they care about the effort you are putting in toward learning about and improving patient care.
Also, they have Flavia coffee/espresso machines which are way freakin' better than the watery, tasteless Keurig machine coffee. If you bring your own milk foam/cappuccino packet, you can really elevate your coffee drinking experience.
Can't say much about the medical care or facilities here because I've never actually been a patient.
