Boy, has this place changed completely. I had last visited this ER a few years back and had one of the worst experiences of my life. I am thankful that Ochsner took over this place. I can see a profound impact on the way the hospital is run. The staff is more courteous and ready to help you. They are more efficient, and the quality of care has improved a lot. I am very happy that this hospital is in my backyard.

Everyone knows that ER visit is something that nobody looks forward to, especially when it is during a vacation. However, no one can stop fate, and fate ensured that I ended up at this ER in the dead of night after my daughter’s fever started spiking, and she also started vomiting. We were welcomed in a completely deserted ER. But this did not affect the care that Susie got. She was attended to very quickly. The doctor was beside her in a matter of minutes. The source of fever was also found. A golf ball sized lump on her inner thighs that had gone unnoticed. The lump was drained, and the wound was dressed up. The also started her on fluids, and we had to spend the night there. Next day, early morning, the doctor came, saw her, and was satisfied with the treatment progress and dismissed us.

During the entire length of stay, I did not hear anybody crib about anything, and all of them were very jovial. They treated Susie thoroughly and well. The best ER trip ever. Highly impressed

Imagine waiting in an ER waiting room and get never called back…would be devastating, right? Well, it certainly happened to me. I was made to sit in the ER waiting room for nearly five hours with a lemon-sized swelling on the forehead and never got called back. There were very few patients before me. I would have understood if there was an emergency, but there was none. What pissed me off was the fact that the friends of at least three staff members sauntered in, did not get triaged, were called straight in and walked out within 30 minutes. I just informed that the ER staff that my time is precious and I could not waste it on idiots like them, and I walked out. I went to nearby ER where they saw me immediately, and the lump was drained.

My experience with this ER can be divided into two parts – ER visit and picking up records.

The ER visit went pretty bad. The staff was super busy in playing games and whiling away time. I had to take two x-rays, and I spent nearly eight hours on that. The staff was super slow when it came to treating patients. The number of patients before me – 3. Seriously 3. During my visit, I was neither allowed to have anything nor was I allowed to go out. For a glass of water, I had to beg the nurses who got it at their own sweet time. Awful.

At the other end was the medical records dept. Super efficient and very friendly people. Bright and cheerful. Very quick. I spent hardly five minutes in the department by which time all the records were ready. Given a choice, avoid this ER.
