Go anywhere or any other hospital in the world but if you value your life, do not ever come here.

I underwent a surgery here almost 10 years back and I almost died here one night because clear case of negligence on the part of the duty nurse who was supposed to be attending to me that night. It was later revealed that the staff’s negligence had allowed my potassium levels to reach far below the usual level.

I had gotten sick that I had to take my mom’s help and be with her the entire time. but my situation never improved and I kept on getting sick day by day. Later a scan revealed that the doctors at Rhode Island had left a metallic clamp in my abdomen by mistake and then I had to take the trouble of getting that removed so that I could go back to my usual self.

Once all this was done, I could see that I was getting better and could go back to my normal schedule.

I have never stepped into that hospital ever since and I think that is the wisest decision I have made.

I wish I could give ratings to this hospital here and if I could I would only give them 0 stars. I have visited many hospitals till now and out of all, I can confidently say that my experience at Rhode Island has been the worst.

Firstly, I sat in the ER waiting room for hours to be seen and finally after a long wait, when I was seen, I was made to wait in the X-ray room for almost an hour. When I decided to check on why nobody had come till now to take my X-ray, they very conveniently tell me that there was no requirement to get an X-ray done in my case.

Trust me, I have never seen such careless idiots in my life. Had I not gone and inquired I would have been sitting there in the waiting room like an idiot.

The staff here are quite weak in their communication skills. They say one thing one time and then go on and change it the next time we talk to them according to their own convenience.

I was a patient here and was admitted for a week and the lesson I learnt from my stay at Rhode Island was never to trust them. There was no good reason for me to be admitted there for a week’s time. I was simply being kept there under the name of observation and made to rot.

Nobody came in to even check on me during the last days of my stay there! Please do not come here for treatment!

Rhode Island’s rehab unit is well known in the area and is they have bewildering expertise working with people who have been victims of stroke. My dad was a patient here at their rehab unit and I am awe of the quality of care and therapy that he received while he was admitted there.

The nurses were compassionate and friendly towards my dad. It was their genuine heart and smiling faces that helped him recover so soon. We had almost lost all hope but they reinstated it in our hearts with their kind gestures.

Thank you so much Rhode Island foe having such a wonderful team of nurses, doctors and specialists in your hospital. Couldn’t have made it without you guys!!!

RIH is my favorite hospital in town and whenever I am in dire requirement of medical needs, this is the place I run to. I look up to the doctors and the nurses working here. Every single staff you meet here; they are a gem of a person. And I would give all credits to the hospital for training them to be that way.

I have been here umpteen number of times and never ever have been let down. Even the people who work in their cafeteria or the gift shop take real good care of you and try their level best to get things done your way!

Unfortunately, I was here at the ER and I had to wait for 4 hours to be seen by someone. I tried to go inside and take a peek and saw that the negligent nurses were sleeping that during the morning hours. I was so much in pain and was somehow bearing with it in a hope to be seen soon and get treated but here people were busy snoozing without any concern for their patients.

I did not joke about my condition to them. I was hell serious when I told them I slipped off and had terrible back pain because of it. I was in excruciating pain and nobody here even bothered to help.
