Hobbled into the Harborview ER on a weekend after I ended up snapping my left leg into two during a fun run organized by my girls’ gang. The ER staff was amazing. The front desk lady helped me with registration while the check-in nurse took me in and then back to the room where a doctor saw me in a matter of minutes. They pumped in a lot of drugs to control pain and all other related stuff (my uncontrollable shaking speeded up things). The ER doctor ordered a surgery, and before I knew, I was being prepped for surgery on my left leg. The surgery went off well, and I ended up getting a plate on my leg….

I would certainly recommend this ER for any type of surgeries

An excellent hospital. My father was a regular at Providence and had the misfortune of undergoing four surgeries to remove a festering infection. When they suggested the fifth operation, I just shifted his care to Harborview, where they were able to get the whole infection out in a single operation. They really know their work. Thank you, Harborview

So, a non-emergent trip to the ER turned a fortnight-long stay for my sister. She had gone there to get treated for a minor spider bite. It turns out the spider bite was poisonous, and infection had spread very fast. The doctor was a knowledgeable guy who certainly knew what he was doing. He gave first aid and then ordered blood work as he was not sure if it was a minor spider bite…He was right. He promptly shifted my sis to the ICU, where they started appropriate treatment. During the stay, she never faced any problem, and they were always attentive to her needs. The care this hospital provided to my sis was amazing. My family is grateful to Harborview beyond words

So, the doctors in this hospital are great, but the nurses suck!!!! My boyfriend had a motorcycle accident and came here to fix his broken hand. They operated him and got it fixed. However, there was a malalignment, and he ended up in the OR again for revision surgery. The surgery was successful. He had to stay here for three days for monitoring and some related complications. During the stay, we noticed that the nurses ignored him completely. It seemed that for these nurses, my boyfriend just did not exist. They never gave him meds on time, and we had to plead for the meds. The nurses were openly talking about his medical condition with each other, in complete violation of HIPAA. There were many other instances where we felt that the nurses were deliberately ignoring him.

Long story short, the care provided by the doctors and surgeon was excellent; however, all the efforts of the doctors and surgeons were ruined by a bunch of inept and haughty nurses.

Avoid seeking care at the ER. The doctor sucks. I was rushed through my evaluation, and the doctor was least bothered about my version of events. He just saw the chart and diagnosed me. He did not follow proper protocol while evaluating me. Result – a misdiagnosis. Pathetic!!!!
