Worn out facility I felt- very untidy and it feels like the employees would rather be any place but. I didn’t realize how beat up it looked because in the pictures online it looks brand new, assuming it’s an old picture. Either way I had an appointment yesterday for a briefing on the surgery I am to have next week and it went pretty bad too. Had a few questions jotted down to ask the surgeon but he seemed confused, was not assertive and kept saying, “but, yeah, I mean..” all the fillers that suggested he was either nervous or didn’t know what he was doing- all bad signs for a surgeon.

The state of this hospital is heartbreaking, just heartbreaking. In fact I’ve been toying around with words to write up this review because my experience was not that bad, but I’d witnessed some disturbing things in the hospital which I’m debating whether or not to share here because it traumatized me for a bit.

This happened three weeks ago I came to Medstar Southern hospital on the 27th of March and asked to see a gen physician and the receptionist asked me to wait while filing out my medical form. I noticed that there were many people waiting on gurneys for rooms to become available because apparently everything was booked solid. This was concerning because a hospital shouldn’t technically run out of rooms or anything- what’d happen to all the other patients?
When I asked the receptionist if I should go to another hospital because I didn’t want to have to wait like that she took a look at my forms and once she confirmed my insurance she said I wouldn’t have a problem. My jaw almost dropped to the floor I was stunned by her response. I asked her if she had made the people without insurance to wait like that and even though she didn’t agree, she didn’t deny.

She claimed she was only following hospital rules and this disgusted me. I looked over to the crowd of people on the gurneys and noticed there was a small child who had a bloody scar on her face. She looked at me at the same time and our eyes met and I saw she was crying. It was such a heartbreaking moment for me and I asked the receptionist once again to at least consider the small children. She said she was going to ask someone and went inside but when I leaned over I noticed she’d gone to the lounge and was talking to a man (possibly doctor) and flirtaciously laughing.

Just disgusted. And then when I was allotted my room I tried falling asleep but I couldn’t get that little girl’s picture out of my head. In the middle of the night I woke up to go to the bathroom and after that wanted to take a small walk in the hall and when I went out I noticed two medical professionals kissing- right in the hallway! Very concerning experience here- I don’t think anyone is professional at all.

There is so privacy at this hospital not at all- especially rhe nurses are very chatty and they give away your information to anyone who asks- I mean this is a major violation of privacy and of course HIPPA- definitely complaining.

Had a colonoscopy procedure done at Medstar Southern Hospital two weeks ago and didn’t have an enjoyable experience (obviously not talking about the colonoscopy part). But the people who stand by the entrance of the hospital were mean and suspected me when they saw my beard (and naturally assumed I was a criminal I’ll bet).

The lady at the front desk didn’t even look up at my face, was just typing in some info and was very stern. But the worst part was when I went towards the colonoscopy part of the hospital. Because it is literally the smallest allotted space in the entire hospital. A pretty big hospital otherwise yet somehow they cheaped out at this section alone, there’s barely any space for you to walk around.

You can’t walk for more than 5 feet without bumping into a machine or another staff member who will give you a stern look. I ended up sitting in one place for a long time because it made no sense otherwise. All in all it was a very average experience- nothing special and they definitely need an upgrade on the colonoscopy section.

Wasn’t up for a C-section but turns out there was no other way to deliver my son, Nathan. This was 2 months ago and in general my experience with medstar southern labor ward was pretty good. They gave me pain meds on time, I didn’t feel much pain at all and even though the waiting was a little annoying everything went by smoothly. Got discharged soon after and came back home with my baby.
