Avoid Nurse Susan if you are visiting WellSpan York Hospital in York, PA.

I have come across lots of wonderful and extremely caring nurses in this hospital, but Nurse Susan has some issues. She is incompetent and extremely rude, and always seems lost and in order to hide her incompetence. She also behaves rudely. The very fact that she does not have any idea about the difference between Flonase and inhalers shows her utter incompetence. Nurse Susan does not know how to give injections. If you ask her something, she snaps at you. She is dragging down the reputation of the entire team. If you ignore her, the rest of the hospital staff is great.

We wheeled my son into WellSpan York ER with a temp of 104 and deliriums. Through all the pain he endured and trials he went through while he was in the hospital, they treated him well. Even though his condition worsened on day 2 and 3, the staff did not give up hope. In fact, I even heard one doctor saying to him, “ No…you are not going while on my watch.” The staff was even there to support me after I could not take it any longer and broke down and wept inconsolably. Thanks to the wonderful care, my son is back home now and busy playing with his friends. Nothing but respect for this wonderful staff.

This is ridiculous. I had to wait for nearly three hours in the ER. The staff is also insulting and is least bothered about the patients. They are so bad that if you are dying, then you might reach your funereal very late because the staff would be busy whiling away time. Slow as Hell. They are incompetent also, cannot even get your vein properly. They poked left, right and center in order to find a vein. The only thing they do very well is checking your vitals. I was checked thrice during my wait….

The hospital ain't bad but could do with a lot of improvement.

My wife was heavily pregnant, and we rushed her to the hospital as she thought her water had broken, but the nurses were still not sure. They go ahead and remove the large pad and the entire water just pours down. They put a gauge and tell, “Oh, your water broke.” That said, the midwife was wonderful. She did an excellent job and delivered our princess safely. The doctor was also great and was there to give medical and emotional support to Jennie. Thank you, everyone, for taking good care of my wife and my princess.
