Good hospital with average employees with a go hard or go home attitude- which is good. Only issue I faced was with the insurance claims afterward. Very confusing and the department at the hospital acts like it’s not their responsibility.

First time at South Nassau but loved the place so much!!! For a scared, pregnant woman this place is heaven. They take excellent care of you and I had a cesarean on the 5th of April. It was a success. From the first minute I got here all the way till the discharge everyone I interacted with was very kind and sweet. But most of all the team for the surgery was just insanely good.

I was, as anticipated, very nervous because I’d never been cut into and I had a lot of questions in my head. Before the surgery , the surgeon saw my saddened expression and asked me what the matter was. He was very polite and a great listener. He listened to me intently and answered all my questions acrobatically. The operating team was very big and yet every single one of them made it a point to come up to me and say something nice, some of them even tried cracking me up right before going into it.

My anxieties washed away and I had the best experience of my life- of course, welcoming my new born into the world. Afterawrds I was shifted to the maternity ward and I was surprised by how clean it was. The nurses that tended to my son and myself were very professional but approachable. They were there at my beck and call and did everything expected of them and then some. A blessed experience to say the least. Owe so much to South Nassau Communities, you guys have the best workers.

My teenage daughter has been puking up blood for 2 hours now, even as we wait in the ER waiting room .can’t believe how lousy the service is over here, if you go tell them that your daughter is really sick and needs to be seen NOW they will ignore you and tell you to wait. Disgusting. What kind of practice sees patients like this and let’s them suffer?

YUCK- this is the first thing that came into my mind when I went into the emergency room because it is filthy as hell. I wasn’t as shocked when I saw the filth in the waiting room because come on it’s a waiting room. But the ACTUAL ER/?! I don’t think they clean the chairs or beds between switching patients !! When I was asked to sit on a bed I noticed dirty foot prints on the bed spread. WHAT?
Don’t even get me started on the bathrooms, they are nastily filthy. And you won’t have trouble finding them because they smell like urine- you’ll get a whiff of it from a mile away. There’s blood almost everywhere and wet tissue paper on the floor. The beds where patients are asked to lie on are just … so filthy I can’t. It’s like you don’t even know what you’re putting your face. I just prayed I wouldn’t get an infection from it. Worst hospital in cleanliness terms.

I love the pediatrics department. Every time I bring my toddler here his face lightens up and I love the bond he has with all the employees at this hospital.

Has anyon ebeen to ward F at South Nassau? If you want the best health care then go to this ward. Remember coming here 2 years ago with my mother but to a different ward (don’t remember which one) and it was horrid. No one cared about her and I had to yell at them again and again to bring her food and take her temperature. That’s why when my doctor recommended this hospital to me I was skeptical. I almost didn’t go but it was an emergency situation I had little say in it.

Anyway thank God I came to the F ward because apparently it’s the best in the whole hospital. Talked to the nurses and they were the ones who told me this. I was tired and feeling very sickly when I first came to this hospital but in less than 50 hours I was feeling much better- and I give full credit to the hospital employees who were always checking up on me. The doctor came thrice a day to check up on me. The nurses came every hour to check my vitals and give me medicines. The cleaning people also came twice a day to clean up the room- very thorough staff. They deserve credit for the success of the hospital. I felt comfortable and very safe during my entire stay.

ER did a good job in taking care of my mum. She fell unconscious at work and her coworkers called an ambulance. The hospital is very big and therefore very rushed at all hours but they still saw her promptly. Nurses were very attentive, especially nurse Susan. Thankfully nothing was wrong with her, she was just dangerously dehydrated so they gave her saline. The doctors were by her side the entire time and soon enough she was good to go back home. Thank heavens for this hosptail, it is soo efficient. Thank you guys!!
