This is a very good place to get oneself treated. I was taken to this hospital with a high temperature and severe stomach cramps. I was taken in quickly by a lovely triage nurse. I was surprised when I was admitted to a bed within 20 minutes. The doctor came, checked me and ordered drips and asked me to stay overnight to ensure that I would not have any recurrence. I must say that the overnight stay was also wonderful. The nurse was great and cracked a few jokes and ensured that my stay was as comfortable as possible. The doctor came in the early morning and ordered my discharge after being satisfied with my progress. I would recommend people to visit Providence Hospital for addressing all their healthcare needs.

I was sent to Providence Hospital after my blood pressure rose to 190 over 105 during wound care follow up. Upon entering the hospital, I was taken in and was triaged quickly when my blood pressure further increased to 195/110. I was asked to wait for a few minutes before the on-call doctor would come and check me. The “few minutes” stretched to a few hours. While waiting, I just had a look around and was shocked to see the filth on the floor. It seemed that sanitation was the last priority for the hospital. I did not dare to go further and came back to my seat. Finally, after waiting for a few hours, an NP came and saw me. The person who checked me had an attitude. She made me feel as if I was a bother to them. She wrote down a prescription and asked to me come for a follow up after a fortnight. Follow up – at this place, I am sorry, I will go to some other place and get myself checked out.

Oh nearly forgot. The billing department was the best department I came across in this hospital. It is an irony, isn’t it? The entire billing process was smooth, and I also got an itemized bill.

A hospital is known for its quality of care, both inpatient and outpatient. While I have never visited the Outpatient Department, a few of my family members have been inpatient at this hospital. And the quality of care in the Inpatient Department is top-notch. The patients are taken good care of by a team of wonderful and highly professional nurses, who while taking care of the patient, also make sure that the friends and family members attending the patient are also made comfortable. My father-in-law was admitted as an inpatient for two days, and he did not have any complaints. This coming from a man who can find negatives in anything under the sun was surprising.

The quality does not change when the shift changes. It remains the same. All are very friendly, caring, and ready to go out of the way to make sure that the patient is comfortable. Thanks to the lovely team, my father-in-law recovered very quickly. He has not stopped singing peans of this hospital. We would recommend this hospital to anyone who has a medical need.

I would not hesitate to say that a boot camp or a prison camp would have been a much better place than this hospital. The staff was the biggest problem. A majority of them, say around 95% of them, were very rude and did not like it when we asked anything. For them, patients were meant to lie in bed and keep their mouth shut. The look on their face said everything. If this is the case when the hospital is near deserted, I shudder to think what will happen if the place is full. Their rudeness knew no bounds when they were laughing at our hardships. Even the patient’s family members are not spared of rude behavior. I had enough and got myself discharged AMA because if I had stayed there for even a day more than, I would have gone insane.

I had once visited the Providence Hospital ER with a friend who had a very bad fall and developed swollen ankles. We were ushered in by a wonderful intake nurse who also helped us in filling the forms. We were taken in, and the on-call doctor visited us within 15 to 20 minutes. My friend was sent for scans, and once the scans revealed no major injury, we were discharged with a script for painkillers and RICE. The whole time spent during the ER visit was less than 90 minutes, which is super quick.
