12:38 am my husband was brought to the er room at antelope valley and I was very nervous for him. The doctors were going on to the nurses about immediate surgery. Hell I wasn’t even sure if they were talking about Ned but it was the most scared I’d ever been in my life. That’s when I met nurse Mona who was the angel that helped me through the rest of his hospital stay. I think one of the doctors asked her to come talk to me or what but thanks .

The worst part after taking your spouse to the er room is the wait. The anticipation every time you see those doors swinging. But nurse Mona came to me and was helping me deal with my situation control my emotions but not bottle them up either . Another great thing about antelope is that they tell you whatever is happening then and there. It’s not a trial run and after that they tell you whether it was successful or not – no! Great hospital.

Hell resembling emergency rooms in this really bad hospital. End up waiting for hours and for what . They misdiagnose you, this is my second time here and both times were very unfortunate they misdiagnosed me luckily with nothing too serious but still don’t appreciate going back and forth from hospital to home for no reason, no compensation for their mistake also.

I can’t get over how dirty the waiting room is.
I get it you’re a big fancy hospital and it’s always crowded but how hard is it to mop the floor?
If you complain about it they send you to another waiting room which is even filthier.
Almost like they’re doing it to get back at you for complaining.
I’m not gonna complain anymore because I’ll never go back there.
Hair, sweat, blood, tissue paper, you find everything on the floor there.

My father-in-law had trouble breathing after the 1st anniversary of his heart surgery so I rushed him to antelope. They don’t respect you or your family at all. Just ask you to wait. They think they’re the only accomplished hospital in the area but they’re not. Very annoyed with them.

Didn’t want to go to antelope went to Kaiser but for some reason they ended up transferring me back to antelope anyway I had horrible experience here four months ago which is why I never wanted to go back but now had no choice.
I thought when hospitals transfer I wont have to wait but I was so wrong they made me wait for a whole 3 hours just like that even though I was in the green zone was very confused and annoyed .. never recommend.

This review is not for doctors alone but every staff member I interacted with- Antelope Valley hospital has a cheerful and lovely environment – they are non partial – they care about treating patients before anything else including their personal lives – some of them don’t even go home for hours but that doesn’t matter to them – so long as the patients have smiles on their faces they power through .

But most of all they didn’t judge me even a smidge – I am 6’2” and hefty people say I am scary looking but I am also very very shy- so I hate coming to hospitals where they always tell me my physique is in stark contrast with my personality and I’m tired of hearing people calling me a sissy especially in hospitals when I need to get injections – but I had no such experience at Antelope Valley.

Not only were they very sensitive to my being afraid of needles they even complimented me for being a sensitive soul unlike other men my size. Nurse Sylvia was the sweetest nurse I’d ever encountered in any hospital ever and I made sure to tell her that before leaving as well. The kind of people who give their life and soul into protecting other people is one thing. But having to work 20 hour shifts and still being nice to patients is the real deal

One of the employees advertised to my father and his friends that they take excellent care of elderly veterans but it’s all hogwash. Not only did I have to wait in line with my dad and three of his friends who are struggling with various ailments for over 2 hours but they didn’t even get us an appointment. What a waste.

Staff here is incredible. I’ve never been on the receiving end of patient care because I’m a nurse myself but the difference in levels of affection and dedication towards work here is evident.
I used to be an er nurse at Marin and Centinela and let me tell you I had the laziest coworkers and you won’t believe in the freaking er. Where everything is an emergency.
Which is why I left both places because the drive to save humankind was very low. But that’s why I liked antelope valley. They were not the brightest of people i know but at least they put their everything into their work. Not just the full time employees even the volunteers it’s very chivalrous.
