Visiting the Danbury Hospital ER is like visiting hell and coming back. At the best of times, they are awful, but things really went downhill during my last visit.

I visited the hospital this past Tuesday after having a 104 fever. I reach there, the nurse checks me in, and then the wait starts. I nod off after feeling exhausted from illness, dehydration, and body aches all over. I wake up after two hours and still it is not my turn. I go and ask and get the weirdest answer ever. The nurse has no clue on when will I be seen. According to him, others are being sent before me because “my case does not look like a real emergency. It can wait.”

Really, 104 fever, dehydration, and body aches are not “real emergency” for you?

I just collected myself and then went to the desk and told him…“thanks, I am leaving. I will go to a hospital where they treat me like a patient based on my symptoms, and not based on assumptions of some fu*&^%g d*&khead.” Never stepping in again.

Quality of care at Danbury Hospital is really an “iffy” thing, or can I say a stroke of luck. Sometimes you get good doctors; sometimes you get such doctors who have no clue what they are doing in the hospital.

A few months back, my son was brought here after he had a fall and his hand had swollen up like a lemon. We had to wait for three hours with no pain meds on offer. Finally, when it was his turn to get evaluated…the doctor gave pain meds and said the swelling would subside on its own. Well, it didn’t. A visit to an orthopedist next day showed he had multiple fractures and needed surgery to fix it.

This was not a one-off case. The shitty care was all-pervasive. I had gone there with a severe stomach ache, chest pain, and feeling nauseous. The diagnosis – indigestion. I am no doctor, but I know that ingestion does not cause such symptoms. So, I ended up visiting another hospital where I was diagnosed with biliary colic, and appropriate treatment started.

In both cases, despite the misdiagnosis by the PAs (never saw a doctor), I was billed for hospital charges and doctors charges

After these two shockers, I am not sure if I would even contemplate visiting this hospital again

I was here in February 2019. ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. Every individual who was responsible for my treatment provided the best possible care. They were professional and yeah, they diagnosed me accurately. Thanks to them, I was back to my usual self pretty soon. The best part was the role played by the nurse assistants. When the shift was changing, they did not let me feel I was alone. They were on top of things.

Ambulance team ROCKS!!! I was involved in a pile-up and was shaken up badly and was also injured. Everyone was amazing. I want to thank Sue, Jeff, and Patricia for ensuring that I reached the hospital in one piece and taking good care while going to the hospital. The ER nurses, doctor, the floor nurses, and doctors were great. The room was comfortable. Thank you, everyone

I was there in January visiting a friend who was admitted there. I was blown away by the manner my friend was treated. He received the best care. The nurses and doctors came and frequently checked on him to ensure he was recovering well. They did not hesitate in answering his questions. I could see my friend smiling and feeling very happy, which made me believe that he was taken good care of. This hospital would be in my mind in case of any medical need….
