I delivered my baby girl over here and MAN. The service is just wow. Was confused between Pennsylvania hospital and Lankenau and finally went with Lankenau anyway. All I can say is- no regrets. Also wow. Checked in on time, got an amazing suite with everything I needed (all the creature comforts I wanted) and was very impressed by the service altogether. Even the postpartum service was appreciated greatly. I will definitely come back for our next baby.

My experience was nothing short of a nightmare. Normally, I get my medical procedures done elsewhere (whatever my medical insurance covers, basically). I’m not particularly picky about the place or anything, I just sort of go with the flow. But if I ever have to walk into the sliding doors of Lankenau one more time, I’d shoot myself. I had to get surgery a few weeks ago and my primary doctor suggested this surgeon in Lankenau.

Apparently he had just shifted here and my doctor said he was a top notch surgeon. And indeed, he was. But my beef was not with the surgeon, it was with the nurse who helped me AFTER the surgery. First of all, everyone who undergoes surgery knows just how tender you are afterward. This nurse was very catty and she handled me in a very rough way. I winced in pain a few times, just to let her know she was hurting me, but she didn’t even look at me.

I later figured out that the doctor was yelling at her for screwing up and each time, she took it out on her patients. I am going to file a formal complaint against her. A nurse like her does not deserve to work in a reputable place like Lankenau.

I have heard of many people complain and warn me about the “triage” thing. But thankfully I’ve never had to go through that. The first time I came in through an ambulance. Second time I was nervous about it but I got sent into a room right away. Guess I’m just lucky that way. What I will say though is that they need some organization. There’s always people running about here and there almost like it’s a fish market. ‘Cept fish markets are probably less stinky.

The weirdest thing I can say about my stay at Lankenau was that I became obsessed with the cafeteria food (this isn’t an April fool’s joke, I swear). I remember my mom offering to bring in food from home because we as a family hate eating food from outside, but many hospitals don’t permit that, especially since I had been admitted as an inpatient. My mother actually sort of fought with the RN regarding this (lol, it was so cute).

Anyway, I was asked to stick with the hospital food and they made such good meatloaf, I kid you not. I am not even sure if it was because at the hospital I felt hungrier than ever, but each time I would get excited when they whirled the food trolley outside my door. I would’ve assumed that at a hospital they don’t add too much sugar or salt; it’s always pretty bland. But not the meatloaf. Even though they only served this two nights (I was there for 8.5 days), it was worth it. I even left a note- hopefully they’ll take it to the cafeteria lady.

Also, people, let’s have a little compassion. Some of these reviews are just horrendous. What are you expecting, it’s a hospital, not a restaurant after all. Just go, do your business, and get out of there. There’s no need to bad mouth anyone. Especially since the doctors here are literally the kindest, gentlest souls I’ve ever met in my life.

I was admitted for malaria and had to stay in the hospital for a few weeks. Some of my cousins flew in from different parts of the country and said that the service here was very nice. The nurses and doctors were very friendly and they explained everything in detail to the close family members. No cause for alarm, whatsoever and they took good care of me too. Would recommend this practice with zero reservation.
