Surgery done here last week- from the minute I stepped into the hospital till the very end I had a fine experience. Very professional staff who interacted with me in the kindest of tones. Surgery went better than just fine, and the surgeons were very fine ( ) the pre and post surgical procedures went by smoothly and basically anyone who needs to get any kind of surgery, don’t think twice before booking yourself an appointment at Harper University Hospital #notpromoting

Not sure if it’s the best place to take loved ones. Was visitng a friend who was down with the flu and the staff said nothing when I brought in fruits (was testing them- you’re not supposed to bring fresh fruit and flower into a hospital)

Had a very strange encounter at harper university hospital. Had bad food poisoning and my dad brought me to harper uni hospital. At first everyone was super attentive and checking up on me, making sure I was doing alright. The food poisoning was pretty bad because I was puking up everything I ingested, even in fluids. They put me under observation and then shifted me to a room a few hours later. Not sure what they got from the period under observation but anyway I was happy to be in a quiet room where I could rest.

They would regularly check my vitals and give me lots of fluids even though I would puke and excrete a lot of it out. Whatever I ate. So then they made my diet strictly fluid and it was fine then. My dad came in that night to check up on me and they said I was doing alright. Just as long as I could keep in food, I could leave. So I waited. And then it happened. It was like I magically became invisible. That night I slept and when I woke up it was 9 am and I realized no one had come in the morning to check my vitals like they normally did (freakishly early at that- sometimes 6 am). I waited for another hour until a nurse passed by and I asked her why no one had taken my vitals.

She came in, hurridly took my vitals and left again. I called out for her saying I was really hungry. I didn’t even know if she heard me. I had a bag of M&Ms in my bag so I ate them and waited. Nothing came out so I was happy. Maybe I was looking better ? But then I got extremely hungry. They brought me breakfast at 10 am. I asked thm why they were so late.. trust me in the nicest way possible and they were being catty with me saying they were busy with other patients as well. I apologized for sounding rude and then again the same happened with lunch and then with dinner. Finally the doctor came in at night and told my dad I could leave. It was a very strange experience that started out great but then morphed into really strange. Whatever, at that point I was just glad to leave.

Absolute top shelf quality of health care the doctors here are so dreamy and nice but at the same time very professional they will not engage in small talk too much stick to the topic of discussion the nurses are also very talented, they know as much as the doctors sometimes the doctors ask for hteir opinions. The nurses are very supportive of the residents by the way, it reminds me so much of Scrubs hehe

Some of these doctors are absolute lunatics. They will say one thing and then the next second they change their mind. My grandmother who had a brain surgery was released and asked to go home even though the day before she asked her to undergo physical therapy- something I was really hoping for my grandmother. When I asked her why she said she looked better now and didn’t need it. DISAGREE.

I always feel confident around a university hospital because there are a lot of people to turn to. If the doctor is busy they will send a resident. The best part about interns is that they are always up for a challenge and will do anything for you. Very dedicated interns and residents at Harper.

Before I write this post, a disclaimer: I am NOT a negative person at all I’ve been called a positive energy radiator so this means a lot coming from me- WORST hospital I’ve ever been to. Not becaue they treated me wrong but they did my mother. My poor, old mother whose kidneys were failing her and she needed immediate surgery. One of my best friends suggested Harper university hospital because she’d had a surgical procedure done here years ago and apparently it was good.

But let me tell you something.. they are nothing but a bunch of raging incompetents who know nothing about medicine and know even less about humanity. I would teach them all a lesson but I’m waiting for the right time. They had the audacity to talk back to me when I asked them why they delayed his dialysis. What they didn’t think of was that my mother’s blood pressure is already rather high and a delay would be the worst option for her.
