I have been admitted here and to be truthful, there was only one nurse I could truly appreciate. But since he couldn’t be with me all the time, I had to go through many gross things at Gross-mont. The first day I was taken in, I was administered an antibiotic drip. A few hours later, it got empty and the device started beeping real loud. I called for help, waited for half an hour and then again called for help but all in vain. So after two hours of waiting, I unhooked my heart monitor, walked into the hallway and left the IV there in the hallway so that it wouldn’t be a nuisance to me. I went back to sleep peacefully and later what exactly happened to the IV, I am not sure.

Later that morning, the next set of medications were supposed to be administered by 7am but nobody bothered to do so till it was 10am. I was ignored like a useless being and I totally understand if they were having a busy day and ignored me in the process but this was a lazy day when most the rooms were empty. That is totally unacceptable! I am 69 year old but I can move around easily. I can’t imagine someone else who lacks mobility to be in the same situation.

Wait wait and wait till your life ends!!!

I walk into this hospital, the receptionist is sweet and she asks me to be seated. I wait for an hour or maybe more and one lady walks up to me to tell me I have been checked in. Then I wait for another 45 minutes for my blood sample to be taken and then I am sent back into the lobby.

I sit there till noon and they are completely oblivious of my presence there. Not a single soul who worked in that hospital cared to ask me why I was seated there for such a long time. After 6 hours of waiting period, I am hungry and I decide to go back home and take some rest. End of the story!

Grossmont was a big time disappointment for me on my previous visit. The doctors here are quite good and so are the nurses; they all know what needs to be done. But the food they serve the patients is my root cause of concern.

I have been an out patient here and always ate merrily from their cafeteria but this time was totally different. I was admitted here and everyday they served me food that dripped oil and butter. No doubt it is tasty but I am not quite sure how healthy it would be, given my current health condition.

After all, I am a patient admitted there! Every day I am either served chocolates, ice creams or puddings three times a day along with my food. I love having them but I don’t think I should indulge in them now.

I really did not understand what their true intention was! Did they indirectly mean – eat all of this junk and be back again soon???
I definitely did bring it to the notice of the authorities but I dunno if any action has been taken to rectify this step.

I walked in here in acute pain and the receptionist who appeared to be nice in the first glance took money from me and checked me in. That’s about it! Do not expect anything more from them. They made me wait in the lobby for hours together.

And trust me it was not because it was a busy day for them or the place was full. There were hardly any people. I know this for sure because when I went in to check, there were at the most five patients and next to them were a group of nurses who were gossiping about this and that. When I told them to take me in instead of wasting my time, they gave me such rude responses.

That day I realized it is better to spend your day in the peacefulness of your house than drive all the way up to this place and be treated worse than a beggar.

There are many other good hospitals in the locality if decent healthcare is what you want. I wouldn’t even go here even if I am on my death bed. I have personal experience with this hospital. They charge you the same rates as a multi-specialty hospital but it is none of their business if you die because of their negligence.

I am telling all of you again – Do not go here. People who work here will ensure that they screw your happiness.

Hospitals, according to me are the saddest places on earth. For me, they are confusing, scary and sad at the same time and every time I have to visit a hospital, I am in trauma. But for the first time, when I walked into this place, I felt a shade better.

People who I interacted with were very warm and cordial. The facilities and the services they offer you are excellent and every single person who works here is efficient enough to take care of things evenhandedly.

If you ever wind up here, do not be scared. I assure you, you are in good and safe hands.
