I just could not understand how the emergency department at BS&W works. It either is choc-a-bloc or deserted. I have been to the ED quite a few times, and so have my family members, but never have we come across a moderate crowd.

Moreover, the standard of care depends on the doctors, and you might end up seeing few doctors who never identify themselves, so there is no way of pinning the blame on a particular person in case things go bad — an excellent way to escape responsibility.

The ER was so full yesterday that I could see the nurses checking how is still there and who has left. I cannot blame the patients. Not recommended if you need urgent care…

I came face to face with a wonderful angel while I was here. My wife had undergone surgery, and the doctors and nurses failed to notify me about her status. When more than two hours passed after the stated time frame, I went and asked the person handling the front desk if there was any news about my wife.

The first thing he did was apologize for not informing me and then burned the wires to know what the status of my wife was. About 15 minutes later, he comes and tells me that my wife’s surgery was completed and she had been transferred to the recovery room. I am unable to recall his name, but people like him should be present in every single hospital.

I had a wonderful experience while I was here for an inpatient stay following a rare medical ailment. The doctors and nurses, as well as the specialists, were amazing people. The exceptional care started from the ER itself, where a wonderful doctor thought out of the box and did a few other tests which helped in identifying my rare medical condition.

The doctors provided exceptional care. They had the magnanimity to come and explain the disease to me and also what steps were being taken to halt its progress and what efforts should be taken for preventing a recurrence.

I appreciate every single effort that was put in to make sure I was back on my feet as early as possible.

Wonderful hospital!!! Exceptional staff!!!

I was in the ED for what can be called a minor emergency, but the care which these people provided was exceptional. They do not differentiate between a minor and a major crisis. I was in and out of this ER within two hours. Will not hesitate to come back in case of any medical exigencies
