Very disrespectful staff- I didn’t approve one bit how they treated my father in law. They tossed around things onto patients beds, the administration team does a horrible job overlooking the whole process and don't even get me started on the nurses. How is it that they can even think of treating an old man like he’s better off dead? Like I’m talking not even the bare minimum amount of respect one human is expected to give another human. That too all because he let out a fart on his first day. HE’S 80! Unbelievable!

I got a minor surgery done at Sinai Grace 4 years ago. It was an average experience, nothing great that I can remember. The surgeon was very sweet and answered all my questions. The rest of them were just present- not particularly helpful or anything but the surgery went by successfully. I moved out of Detroit years ago and am currently in New Jersey with my husband. Recently it was revealed to me that I would need to undergo surgery again, that too the same knee that had been operated on 4 years ago at Sinai Grace.

Of course, I had all kinds of questions- was it Sinai Grace’s fault that I had to do this again? But before even going there, the doctor recommended that I get in touch with them and ask them to email me my medical documents because I’d lost them during the shift. I sent them a polite email asking for all the requirements which were stated to me by the doctor. 2 days went by and I got no response. Considering I had to get the surgery done as soon as possible, I had to push for a response so I called them.

A receptionist who picked up said she went through the medical docs and just couldn’t place my name or documents. This was annoying because after 20 minutes on the line I was able to get through to them and to hear that they misplaced my documents… I mean, does that even happen in a hospital? I was enraged so I asked them what alternatives they had to provide me with the information they are supposed to have. The woman got hostile and said I shouldn’t have lost the documents,
to begin with.

Maybe I shouldn’t have raised my voice, but isn’t it the job of a receptionist to deal with customers politely? After all customers are king. This really got me upset so I decided to fly down to Michigan over the weekend and find out what all the ruckus was. When I got there the surgeon that operated on me was not there but there was a nursing staff who remembered me. She said that the medical records were not with them and they recycle out old patients who don’t follow-up with them after every 5 years or something like that. All I can say is, it’s a waste of money and energy. I can’t believe I went all the way to check with them feeling stupid about that decision.

They are dangerously understaffed. My daughter fell down a flight of stairs and complained about possible broken ribs so I immediately rushed her to Sinai-Grace. Unaware of how useless they were we waited like losers for 3 hours before we actually got an X-ray at this hell hole. They didn’t even know what they were looking for, the “Doctor” looked like he was turning 15 this year. Very disappointed with their level of unprofessionalism. That too in a hospital, it’s the least one would expect.

Agreed that no one likes a hospital setting. No matter how clean or perky, it’s still a hospital so it’s depressing. My mum was an inpatient at Sinai Grace for 3.5 days and she complained every single day about not being at home where she’s most comfortable but I think the staff at this hospital are amazing. I find it very difficult to deal with my mother- she is a very difficult person, but the staff handled her very professionally.

I don’t know how they managed to listen to her ranting on for hours on end, but they had no complaints. They were still very sweet, brought her her medication and food on time, changed her sheets regularly and even assisted the housekeeping team while cleaning up the room because she’d complained about an unclean environment (told you she was difficult). When I apologized to them about my mother’s ranting, they were even sweeter and said she was a doll.

You can’t judge a hospital based on one experience alone- sorry but that’s the bitter truth. The staff is all wildly different and I don’t believe there is a hospital policy that applies to all. You won’t believe how weirdly different each floor is. The first two floors are very organized, friendly staff, are very thorough while dealing with patients. Then as you ride higher they are running out of hospital equipment, the doctors are screwing up interpreting test results, the nurses are sitting around and eating snacks, there is trash on the floor… sometimes you wonder if it’s even the same hospital. When you see that kind of inconsistency, you know you’re better off without that hospital.

Can I just say how thoroughly satisfied I was with the orthopedics department? Not only did they check me out immediately, they knew exactly what to do even before taking my x-rays. Of course, they did end up taking the X-rays and other scans to be certain, but if there’s something I like, it’s a doctor whose certain about his science.

My teenage son nearly broke his neck while playing college football and I was bawling my eyes out the entire time. I didn’t know how serious it was or anything, just rushed to the hospital to find all his friends and coach standing there. The surgeons and doctors and nurses were all very kind and explained the surgery he would have to undergo. Everything went fine, he will be on bed rest for months, but at least he’s safe and alive. Thank God and the Head and Neck Department at Sinai Grace.
