A perfect example of how a good-run hospital can be destroyed. I had visited this hospital a few years back and was highly impressed by the service that I got at that time. Keeping that in mind visited the hospital…I must have been drinking when I took the decision. This hospital has become a living hell. The nursing staff behaved very rudely with me. They desperately need a refresher course in etiquettes and patient caring. Barring a few (which you can count on your fingers), rest of them had no clue as to what was happening here. The managers were also not helpful. The food which was severed to the patients was atrocious and not worthy of eating. I was in the room for a week, and I did not see a single housekeeping staff coming and cleaning the room. The bed linens were changed only after my son went after the charge nurse and made a big fuss. The doctor and a bunch of nurses would come every day, see me and go. They did not even ask me if I was okay and were there any problems….

Take your care somewhere else!!!

My son took me to the Jameson ER a few days back after I started complaining of chest pain. The ER team was excellent. The nurses were very friendly and knowledgeable; took me in immediately. The on-call doctor was great. He was attentive, concerned, and very professional. He ran some tests, took a blood draw and after 30 minutes discharged me. The reason for chest pain – indigestion. While leaving, he gave a parting shot, “If I were you, would stay away from the fried chips and chicken. You ain’t getting any younger.” I am 42, yet it was his subtle way of telling me that I am at risk of having a heart attack.

I was satisfied with the care I got here. As per the doctor’s recommendation, I am slowly reducing the intake of fried items.

The only issue with this hospital is the ER wait time. It can sometimes stretch into hours. However, the service that you get after that would make up for the wait. The nurses and very good and know what they are doing. The doctors are also great and will explain everything to you. They can sometimes seem to be very uncaring, but it can be attributed to the huge volumes in the ER. Even they are human beings and can get exhausted. But those things are few and far between.

Do not go by the reviews in various forums. The staff is great and would do all they can to get you better. Remember, they are not miracle workers, so expecting quick healing is ridiculous.

My grandpa fractured his hip on a Monday morning back in January, checked into the hospital on Monday evening at 3:30 PM, was seen in a jiffy and underwent surgery on Tuesday morning. He was back home on Friday. The delay in reaching the hospital was due to bad weather with even the ambulances having problems driving through the blizzard. The team was short-staffed, but that did not affect their quality of care. They were there to take care of my grandpa every single day. The nurses were very kind and highly efficient. The doctors, surgeons, and the floor doctors also took great care of my grandpa. Heartfelt gratitude to every single person who took care of my grandpa despite facing a lot of hardships. You would always be in our prayers.
