Holy Cross Hospital should be shuttered... ABSOLUTE HELL!!! I had the misfortune of visiting Holy Cross Emergency Room but left even before I could see a doctor, all because of a bi*&h who calls herself a nurse. The bloody lady was not able to get a vein to draw blood, and she poked my hand nearly five to six times, and with each failure, her anger kept increasing. After the sixth attempt, I asked her to get another nurse because she obviously did not know what she was doing. She got pissed off and stomped out. Outside, she started talking bullshit about me and started humiliating me. I heard all the rubbish for nearly ten minutes. Finally, I could not bear it anymore and started giving her back in equal measure, and soon the nurses who were laughing at me began to smile at the incompetence of their colleague. I was not done. I also officially filed a complaint with the management and intend to pursue it to its logical conclusion, and that is her removal from the hospital. STAY AWAY FROM THIS SHITHOLE!!!

I visit hospitals as part of the job and have been to quite a few hospitals including the marquee ones. Everywhere I went, there was a section of staff who were least bothered about what was happening in the hospital, and they just came for getting their monthly checks. But with Holy Cross, it was a completely different picture. Every single person whom I interacted with was great. They believed in their work and gave respect to every single patient, without any preference to profession or color. The staff is caring and courteous. I would recommend the Holy Cross

This review is actually for an incident that happened over a year ago, but it is still fresh in our memory, and I thought I would tell everyone about it. My mother was taken to the hospital ER after she was badly injured in a hit-n-run. They attended to her immediately and once she was in the ER, they gave us a call. Once we reached the hospital, they informed us about her situation and said she needed emergency surgery, but were not sure if she could pull through.

That left us shell-shocked, and we were not able to decide anything. Then the doctor and the surgeon came and explained at great length what they intended to do and that her passing away was a very, very remote possibility. They convinced us to go ahead, and we permitted the surgery. The staff was excellent and addressed all our questions. They kept us informed about her progress at every stage. Finally, after a three-hour operation, they came back and informed us that she had a successful surgery and would be back to her normal self within five to six months.

Today morning, I dropped her at the airport as she was flying to Europe with her friends. Ultimate respect and gratitude for the incredible team who treated her.
