Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) is a non-profit, 1,541-bed tertiary medical center receiving national and international referrals. Yale-New Haven Hospital includes Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven,... more Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital and Yale-New Haven Psychiatric Hospital.
This hospital is very difficult to have someone treated on an acute level of care. Their priority is education over patient care. 20% of the nursing staff are unfit to care for patients. My wife was treated... more by Johns Hopkins for symptoms as a result of ms, seizures. Hopkins she was in twice a year, Yale with failure to follow up on patient care, she was in 24 times in a year. patient care is administered by residents and attendings first year out of residenship. There's no follow up to transition care after discharge. Went in for a pick line, came out minus a pint of blood and nobody knows how she lost a pint of blood. Constantly a fight for proper care. Do not keep family informed, unless you argue and get patient relations or an administrator involved. If you have a sick loved one this is not the place to bring them.
Rate of readmission after discharge from hospital (hospital-wide)
Rate - 18.3% (2.3% above the national rate)
