It would be a lie if I say that Plantation General is one of the best hospitals in town because it is not. But on the other hand, when I think about the place and compare it to many other hospitals I have previously been, then it is not that bad at all. The staff are friendly, they take care of you and they do bother to help you when you ask for it. And unlike many other hospitals I have been, there is no fuss to be seen in the ER and the people who work here do put in efforts to ensure that things go on smoothly without any hiccups.

What needs attention is the hospital infrastructure and design. I know its an old place but it is high time, they think about remodeling the place so that it looks better as well as cleaner. And something urgently needs to be done about the parking facilities too. If such upgrades are done, then I definitely feel the hospital deserves a better rating.

Dumb employees

The hospital is alright and the facilities are good. The doctors know their job well too. But I was somehow put off completely by the dumbness of the other staff working there. I was to foot my bill and none of these dumb asses knew the procedure. One kept calling the other and the other called another and it continued in a never ending vicious circle.

Then I myself decided to make calls and I had to make 10 calls to get to the right person because nobody knew what the right channel was. Ohh!! I forgot about how they had connected me to somebody who was not even remotely related to all this.

I think the hospital urgently needs to either train their employees or hire better ones so that they can avoid such glitches in future.

Plantation general is the only hospital I have ever been to that too thrice and I never had to wait even for a minute in the ER. I don’t know if it is my luck but none of the employees here ever acted fussy or made me wait or treated me badly whereas I have experienced all of this many a times in other hospitals.

The staff here are attentive and they know how to treat the patients. The doctors or the nurses do not show attitude or throw tantrums and know how to em pathetically deal with their patients. I would say it is 200% better than many other hospitals in town and if this is my lucky place, then I am going back here whenever there is a need.

I have two daughters and one of them was already suffering from a viral stomach infection. Unfortunately my other daughter contracted it too. So leaving the first one at home, I decided to bring in the second one to the ER of this hospital in order to get her treated so that things don’t become worse.

When we went in, they said 10 minutes and she would be seen by the doctor. But more than half an hour passed and nobody bothered to even check how my daughter was doing. On the other hand, her condition was worsening. She kept on puking and it just wouldn’t stop. I tried to get help from the guy at the reception and he was so busy on his cell phone, he had no time to even look at me as I was pleading for help.

Then when she went in, I encountered some of the worst and completely rude people for the first time in my life. I don’t know how they even qualify to call themselves nurses and doctors. They were shouting at us the whole time and my poor baby was finding it difficult to cope with all that they said.

I decided to walk out of that place with her and I took her to another hospital where they admitted here and started giving her treatment immediately so that she would recover soon. If plantation general continues to be this way, I am sure in no time they wouldn’t have any patients at all.

A friend of mine delivered her baby at Plantation General and she sang so many praises about the place, how the doctors and nurses were so kind to her and how they had made birthing an amazing experience for her. So, when my sister was to deliver hers, it was I who recommended this place to her and even pushed her to get admitted here.

I was with her throughout the process but I did not finding anything extraordinary or remarkable about the place. On the whole, it is alright; I would say above average and that’s about it! The doctor who handled my sister’s pregnancy was good but I found the nurses to be high on attitude and were at times very cold and unwelcoming to my sister, which I something I did not appreciate at all. After all, this was an important occasion for her.
She deserved to be treated with some amount of kindness at least.

I think the management should give some better training to their labor nurses especially on handling and treating pregnancy patients.
