My preferred hospital is South Shore Hospital since it is closer to my place. However, it has now changed. I had visited this hospital a few days back with a friend who was having uncontrollable vomiting and was not able to keep anything down. He was seen in pretty quickly and was provided excellent care. Well, one can expect that from this ER since it has become a part of Beth Israel Deaconess Health family. I am impressed with the hospital and planning to shift my care to this hospital

One of the worst ERs in Massachusetts. They have no communication and scant regard and respect for a patient’s time and money. I had visited the ER for a nonemergency issue, and I was given all-clear by the concerned people. But I did not get my discharge papers for nearly four hours. Nobody had an idea why was my discharge delayed. If the nurses and the doctors do not have a clue, then how can I have a clue? Won’t come back.

This is the only hospital that I trust to provide quality care. I have seen many people talking bad about this hospital on different forums, but they all forget one thing. They do not know how an ER works. If you have an ailment that can be treated by your PCP, then ER is not the place for you. One does not go to the ER for treating the flu. You visit an ER for major problems. Most of the time, the techs, nurses, doctors would be on 12+ hour shifts without a break. They may not even have time to grab a bite. If you see them grabbing a bite or drinking something, please keep in mind that it might be their first for the day. They sacrifice their health and comfort so that you are treated well. Also, one should remember that in an ER who comes first does not matter, what matters is the nature of injuries. If it is serious, then they get the first preference.

Offer my sincere gratitude to the wonderful team at BI.

What do you get for a pain score of 10/10, broken metatarsals, as well as a broken ankle? Surgery, splint/cast, painkillers, and other necessary medicines, right? Wrong if you are in Beth Israel. These morons ended up giving me Motrin and wrapped my leg in an Ace bandage. Thanks to the genuine doctors at another hospital, I am in a cast after undergoing surgery.

This hospital is pathetic. Very rude and mean staff who are more interested in getting you out of the hospital as fast as possible. With my injuries, I had to wait for two hours, hobble to a lab for x-ray and then hobble back to my seat. At no point, did the nurses request a wheelchair. On the contrary, a nurse was very angry at me because I was walking very slow. DUH!!!! I have a fracture, remember. The facilities are very dirty, and it seems that it was cleaned years ago. The bathrooms are not clean…the list is endless…Never again.

BI Deaconess Hospital is a great Hospital run by caring and very professional staff. My family is a regular here, and some of my family members have undergone many complex, serious surgeries here. Each time, we have been treated well. The nursing professionals and the doctors have been top notch. We are highly impressed with the procedures undertaken to mitigate infections. The pre-op and post-op care is very detailed and personal. The staff is also very supportive. I am happy that we have such a wonderful hospital in our neighborhood. Thank you.
