I had to get admitted as in inpatient at Riverside and to be honest, the room was old and a little dingy. But I won’t complain about my experience at all because the staff was simply amazing. They tended to my every need and even if I winced a little, from afar the nurse would rush to my side, checking up on me. This kind of service has never been provided to me in any other hospital. My appendectomy was on 12/05/18 and Dr. Lara was in charge. Super group of docs.

If I were to sum up this review in one word it would be: T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E. I had to bring my sister to this hospital because it’s closest to our home, but she was in a lot of pain and was down with “shingles”. This, apparently, is not a life-threatning disease but if not treated on time can have some serious repercussions. That too many people have the shingles on their back, but my sister had it on her neck and stretching towards her face, which can lead to blindness if not treated on time. So she was having serious headaches and could now possibly lose her vision also. We knew that this had to be treated immediately.

Thankfully the receptionist let us go right in and we were greeted by this sweet nurse who assured us my sister would be fine and said she would take care of her. I didn’t get her name, but she was the sweetest Indian girl. She asked us to go to the waiting room for a few minutes, and she left. When we got to the waiting area I almost cried out. There were close to 100 people cramped up in a tiny room that looked like a match box and there were maybe 10 seats in total. This was so confusing to us.. my sister had a viral infection, after all. Shouldn’t they have been more careful?

When I told the receptionist there at first she didn’t seem to care. Then I screamed Virus and she slowly looked up. They then shifted us to a secluded room with a bed and asked us to wait there. At least we got to sit so we didn’t complain. My sister was closing her eyes because she was delirious from the pain. I went out twice to get her some assistance but we only got our room after 3.5 hours. That was 5 hours in total from when we first got to the hospital, that my sister withstood that pain with no medication whatsoever.

Then the doctor came in, who was dressed informally, almost like he had just walked in from his living room. He came and grabbed my sister’s face and was inspecting it. It was a little un-doctor like, as I’d always imagined them as extremely well mannered and stuff. My sister whose eyes were swollen didn’t complain about anything though. He left and then the nurse came back with 2 pills for the pain. My poor sister cried out in relief when she saw this and grabbed the pills. What kind of a hospital was this, that they don’t even bother about the patient’s pain?

I had to leave in sometime, but I cancelled my plans because I knew it wasn’t safe to leave my sister alone in this freakshow of a hospital. She wasn’t given IV until much later that night. When I complained about all this to the receptionist, she said that they were understaffed that time of year. Is that really a strong enough excuse to neglect the well being of a patient? I’m sorry, but I really don’t think so.

If you want a prime example on how the American healthcare system has failed us, this is the hospital to go to. The doctors and nurses are the most careless and rude people you will ever meet in your life. They act like they’re being forced to work for free or something. Plus you can practically see how everyone here plays politics. My father had to get surgery, and has Medicaid so we thought all would go smoothly. But the doctor who needed to approve it played politics and didn’t approve it. Basically, all they care about is money. It’s not about saving lives or anything. This “community” hospital must be closed, that’s the only solution.

I had to be rushed to the ER and they took me to Riverside community hospital (it was without my consent) but it was okay. I had to be hospitalized for 4.5 days and that was fine too. To be honest, I was nervous about a new hospital like this, but their staff was very approachable. They were always smiling and chatting, the nurses like a swarm of buzzing bees wherever they went.

The one thing I want to complain about is the cleanliness. Such a big hospital, the one thing I’d expect is a lot of janitorial help. But the 5 days that I was there, I saw only 2 janitors on my floor. There was dried blood, bits of toilet paper, and many other disgusting sights on the floor and I felt nauseated mostly because of that. I refused to touch anything either because of how filthy the floors and windows were. My husband told me that the elevator had a cockroach. I would not feel comfortable to be admitted again here, only because of this factor. But so to speak, the doctors and nurses were very helpful .

I was confused between Huntington and Riverside for my delivery. This was my 2nd and the previous one was at Huntington. So I thought I’d take my chances with Riverside. All I can say is that for my 3rd baby, I will definitely come back to Riverside. It was the most comfortable for me.
