I have waited in their empty emergency room for more than two hours and there was not even a fly here to attend to me. I wonder where the nurses and the doctors had vanished. They have a full fledged joke in the name of ER.

I am completely appalled at the way they run their operations in the hospital. Absolutely no order in doing things. A big NO from my side for visiting this hospital.

When I took my mom to this hospital, I found that most of the nurses were either on the phone or the computers or chatting with one another. They were least bothered about their patients or their well being.

Most of the nurses were away and nobody was available to take care of my mom. Finally the one to who my mom was assigned seemed very junior or rather a new joinee/ trainee to me who didn’t know much work.

I strongly feel the hospital needs to keep a check on their nurses, the way they work and the manner in which they treat their patients.

In November last year, I was here at this hospital for my yearly mammogram and also a follow up biopsy and an ultra sound scan. I was so happy to see that they had a separate Women’s Imaging and Radiology Centre and the people who worked there exhibited professional attitude while they went about with their work.

Thank you so much for being so kind and down to earth. I was totally comfortable in your hands! You guys are doing a great job and keep it up forever!

I drove to this hospital when I started puking blood at home. I really felt there was something drastically wrong with my system and I needed an immediate check up. But when I came in to the ER of Morton, there was a long wait to be seen. Some fellow patients even told me that they were waiting for more than 10 hours. My heart skipped a beat thinking as to how long I will have to wait, given my current condition.

I sat for an hour puking blood over and over again into a bag but nobody working there considered my situation to be urgent enough! So, finally after 3 hours of waiting, I drove elsewhere where people were happy to treat me and make me feel better.

A place like Morton is a joke in the name of a hospital and such facilities should be closed down with immediate effect.

I don’t know too much or about all the departments in this hospital but I can personally guarantee for the ultrasound department of this hospital. The ultrasound department at Morton can be called as the perfect example of dedicated and good customer service at work.

The staff are hardworking and they have no time for loose talks while they are at work, unlike in many other places and one can completely trust themselves with people like this.

Kudos to the whole team! Keep up your hard work!

It is the cheapest hospital in the whole town and when I say cheap I don’t mean reasonable. Cheap as in sub standard quality cheap!

The bathrooms are so dirty and the rooms look as if they haven’t been dusted or cleaned in ages. And they have a tini tiny parking space where it is hell difficult to even get a slot. Food is the worst part about the hospital. The first and the last time I was at the hospital, I could see roaches crawling all around the cafeteria and it is the same food they serve us.

I wonder how the place is still being kept open for people to come…

I think the place could be bearable for adults but NEVER take your children there to get them treated. I say this out of my experience. My son injured himself while playing and I took him there. I would call it as one of the worst mistakes of my life. The nurse who was treating him was so bad to him.
She treated him as if he was a criminal and had done something gravely wrong.

He is an 8 year old after all but she did not have any consideration for him! And even they way she put the stitches, it worsened everything and at night my poor boy was running high fever and the next day we took him to another hospital and were told that the stitches caused infection in the area.

Such a risk I tell you! Please never take your kids down there! Please!
