Bad things were all I heard about this place and I very easily believed them as well because they were in majority. So, when the time came for me to deliver my baby boy, this hospital was my last choice. In fact I did not want to step into this place at all. But as fate had it, I ended up being here because of some emergency issues.
I was hell nervous because I had ended up in a place where I didn’t want to be at all. But the staff who handled my case took me by a pleasant surprise. All of them had this positivity about them and from the doctor to all the nurses, everybody was at their best and tried to calm and soothe me in amazingly different ways.
Seeing their care and concern, I finally felt I could be in safe hands after all and there wasn’t a need to be worried. The staff here have been really nice to me and they took great care of me while I delivered, thus making it a pleasurable experience for me. Something, I would like to remember my whole life!

There was a time when I was all praises about this hospital but with my recent visits here, I can definitely see that things have taken a turn, for the worse. The last 3 times I have been here, these people have made me wait for hours together and they seem to have appointed a new set of nurses or at least swapped them from elsewhere and all of them are nothing but rude.
I politely asked them a question and they were so curt that I was almost in tears. And then they leave me for hours together without a single update on when I will be seen and all that.
With my third recent visit, I am fed of this place and I have decided that I am never going in there again. Not in a mood to take any more insults or humiliation.

This place needs a thorough clean up

My son had an asthma attack yesterday morning and I took him to tri city. When I entered the place, all that came to my mind was, “ewwweewww its so dirty”. The triage nurse finished her work soon and took my son in and it had such gross floors which urgently required cleaning. There were cabinets in the room with an inch of dust over them.
If you visit this place, you might actually be taking home infections which you never had in the first place. I will eternally be thankful to God Almighty for getting my son discharged in one piece without causing any more complications. All the while he was there, I was praying for his well-being.

When I was admitted to tri city, I had very bad cough and high fever which was later diagnosed as pneumonia by the doctors over here. I was really really sick and nothing was helping me out until I came here.
The nurses who attended to me were very much nice to me and they were always on the ball. They were not just discharging their duties, I could see concern in their eyes for me.
Whenever I made a hubbub about anything, they still managed to smile at me and take it all in a positive stride. And when I got bored, I pestered them with many questions and they understood my state of mind and patiently answered them all.
As I am all set to get discharged, I have made friends with most of them and will definitely try to visit them in the hospital or have them over at home.

The place has very bad rating and reviews and it does for a very solid reason. This is by far the worst hospital I have ever been to. To be frank, I wouldn’t even admit my dog over here because he deserves far better treatment than the people who work here are capable of providing.
I was here after a surgery and every single staff here other than the doctor who saw me (he too was only bearable) were at their horrible best and treated me as if I was some animal. The amateur nurse would keep on poking my hand with needle to find a nerve and if I told her it hurts, she would just yell, instead of trying to make me feel better. And then there was another one worse who refused to help me into the bathroom and asked me pee and poop on my bed without any diapers that too.
I had such a horrible time over there that I do not even want to recollect. I have penned down all of this so that others get a good pen picture of what exactly happens in that hospital and how badly they treat their patients.

The bad reputation this place has pretty much been well-earned by them. I am a stroke victim and when I had an emergency situation, I was made to wait till I passed out in front of them. Thank god, I still have life left in me.
I am not all surprised by the horrible reviews and rating this hospital has because I do have a first hand experience of their lack of professionalism and medical ethics.
I would strongly suggest one to avoid this place and stay far away from here for your own good.
