My cousin was admitted to this hospital for high fever and dehydration. I stayed with him for three days. During this time, we interacted with few nurses as well as a doctor in charge of his care. They were timely and very courteous. They attended to every single need of his without making any fuss about it. While they did not bother him unnecessarily, they took care to ensure that he was not alone when I went out of the room.

New Orleans East Hospital is the best hospital in New Orleans!!!! I got some bruises while at work and a swollen right hand. I am taken to the New Orleans East Hospital Emergency Room. The staff was extremely professional, right from the intake nurse to the x-ray technician. I had expected to be in the ER for nearly five to six hours, but my injury gets assessed, treated and I am discharged in just two hours.

This hospital has become my favorite, and I am going to visit this wonderful hospital for all my healthcare needs. I am truly grateful and thank all the professionals from the bottom of my heart.

My PCP scheduled a PET scan here, which I felt was quite strange because my PCP’s office is uptown. Nevertheless, I show up for my 12:30 spot by noon. The hospital is near empty, and there is hardly anyone. When I inquired about my procedure, I come to know that the technician who was supposed to image me had not reported in and these guys have not got a replacement. After getting a piece of my mind, they arrange for an alternate technician who was a thorough gentleman, I must say. This technician turns up two hours late, and apologize profusely. We start the procedure, and right away, the machine breaks down. Another half-an-hour is spent on repairing it. We start the process again, and the machine breaks down once again.

I am finally walking out of the hospital’s front door four hours later without getting the imaging done. They even have the gumption to ask me if I would like to reschedule the scan again. My foot, I am off, never to return.

My brother had to be wheeled into the ER due to severe breathlessness. The staff takes over and very quickly gets the paperwork done, put him on a mask and get blood work done. The on-call doctor is on the job immediately and starts the treatment. It is later known that he suffered an allergic reaction to pine nuts, a new one to us. We stay there overnight, and by morning we are out.

I have been to many hospitals as part of my profession, and I must say that there are quite a few hospitals that stand out due to the quality of healthcare and there are others which stand out due to the quality of the staff as well as the healthcare. And New Orleans East Hospital falls into the latter category. Professional, empathetic, caring, and ready to go beyond the call of duty. I would trust my life with these people.
