The day I decided to take my son there because of an emergency and that was the worst mistake of my life. I put my child through a lot of agony by taking him to this shitty place. A few years back, as a small child, my son had a seizure and big time trouble breathing properly one day.
My husband and I, seeing his condition rushed him to Sturdy Memorial and when we got there, I immediately explained the emergency of the situation to the people there so that the first preference would be given to my son. But nobody seemed to be bothered even after my desperately explaining the situation to them.
I tried begging them, pleading them and finally after half an hour, a nurse came and took my son in. My husband and I were in tears by then as we felt we would lose our child that day. By the time he was taken in, my son had a very high fever and I requested them to give him some medicine so that his fever would come down.
My son was already gagging and struggling and I knew he wouldn’t be able to keep his medicine down and I requested them to do something about it; give him a suppository or do whatever they can to help him keep the pill down. But again, they were in no mood to listen to what I said and then they shifted him to another room for no reason.
Finally, when we saw that we were not being heard at this place and no doctor or nurse was gonna save my son’s life; after 3 hours, I decided to walk out of the place with him and take him to some other decent hospital. And I am thankful that I made the decision that day. Else, I do not what would have happened to him in this disgusting place.

This place is totally unbelievable; I never thought a hospital could be so so disorganized and horrible till I went there for a treatment and experienced things myself. First of all, the day we were there, I found the place to be understaffed. There was not even a single soul at the reception to attend to us and that day we were really in an emergency situation.
My son fell down and hurt himself bad while playing in the courtyard. He sustained major injuries in his hands and legs and minor ones on his forehead. I even suspected if he had fractured his right hand in the process. That’s how we ended up coming here and to our disappointment, nobody was there to take us in and my son was crying in pain.
Finally, some odd lady came, took us in and asked us to wait and we ended up waiting for a doctor or a nurse to attend to my son for hours together in their dirty hallway. Finally, as 2 hours passed, I could no longer take their slackness and decided to walk out of the place with my son.
I was astonished at how a hospital like this is still operational. They have no value or respect for other’s time and I don’t think they do have any doctors or nurses appointed as well. Please do not ever go there!

I checked myself into Sturdy Memorial because of severe stomach pain and I was lucky enough to get admitted into the ER without much fuss or wait. The doc came in and I was feeling a little embarrassed that I have been sick and I couldn’t get the right words to explain myself because I was feeling quite anxious but the doc here didn’t seem to care at all.
He was going on talking me over and over and I felt he was not interested in treating me and was only keen to drive me away from this place. He didn’t take a second look at me and prescribed a few medicines and sent me back home.

I was admitted here for a fortnight and everything went fine with me. The staff is great and I never had any problems with them or their services while I was admitted there. Their top priority is their patients and I have seem them being in discomfort so that their patients can be comfortable.
All of them have been good to me and made me feel at home during my stay there and took real good care of me. Even if I forgot something important, they were always there to take care of those things. It was wholesome care that I received there.

The place is horrible and the people who work there are stone hearted. When I was screaming in pain, the doc was busy loading me with information on medications. I mean who on earth does that!!
Then instead of making a diagnosis by running tests, all of them were talking on a lighter note about what could possibly be wrong with me. Then they started a debate among themselves about what could be wrong and went on and on with their arguments for about 20 minutes before I yelled at them and asked them to shut up.
I just stormed out that place because I was pissed off with their attitude and while leaving, I left the management know why I actually left without taking treatment. I hope they soon mend their ways.

My dad was brought in here because I suspected he was having a stroke and the doctors here were amazing. As soon as we landed there, my dad was taken in the very instant and the docs were on his treatment.
They were a good team and each one of them knew what they had to do so in order to handle my dad’s critical situation. I was relieved seeing them treating my dad and I don’t think I could have had a better experience anywhere else. They saved his life and even came up to me to tell me there was nothing to be worried about and I did the right thing by bringing him to the hospital on time.
