Jacobi Medical Center Reviews

Before you go to Jacobi Medical Center, you may want to know what the people who have already gone to this The Bronx emergency room think.

tanim chowdhury⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedLike any other city hospital this is a very busy emergency section, some people might think that they r slow, but obviously their is a lot that’s going on behind the scene . To my experience they r constantly working to get the most priority patient get service first. Good nurses and doctors.ibrahima Diallo This is the worse emergency place I have ever been to in my life. Last year, I walked in there at 12:20pm and got there of there at 1:20am in the morning. Worse decision I have made that year. Staff were unprofessional. Receptionists decide who goes next, not by “the order” who gets there first. Waited there more than 11 hours. Regardless what was the state of my emergency, No human being in this planet deserve to wait more than 11 hours to see a doctor. Unfortunately I had no choice but to stick around. Hell of improvement is needed in Jacobi emergency room at the Bronx. Prybysterian hospital only for me now.Hamje Boy2 I came to Jacobi Emergency Center to see my cousin he had stroke , and I try to ask a (chinis) nurs for help, refused to help and said to me oh not me, this is not a first happened, I also came to the emergency for my finger broken , last 2016 , they hold me 9 hours in the emergency room with terrible pain, without pain medication, I asked for pain medication a doctor her name is Angelina, but she didn’t give to me , and said he is very busy with other, and 8 hours done her shift without seen me , that’s why , I don’t recommend action for Jecobi hospital, my recommendation is Montefiore hospital,Anila Neza⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️They have improved , the waiting to be called is less than 2 hours , I like the service , the nurses are nice ,Jesse Lamajla 9+ hours at the emergency room..to get checked up for a virus of food poisoning that my body been fighting for 6 days , even explaining they pain that I been and still dealing with to this day and 9+ hours later still waiting while being ignored. literally everyone that came after me were being discharged . I still dont know how serious my condition . If anything happens to me I hope one family member will stumble upon this review and take lawful action. For ignoring to help me.Diallo Mamadou Saidou If I couldve gave a 0 rating I would. This the worse ER I have ever been . spent about 30min just to go to the triage and spent 4h after the traits without been seeing by any nurse while people that came after went through. They have no sense of urgency. The front desk was helpful but still 4h after triage and still disnt see a nurse yet. Always happening in under served areas .Steph 7 Worst place ever!!! Nurses are very unprofessional and does not act in a sense of urgency. Their tone & delivery when patients are seeking answers is boardline disgusting!! We don’t need people like this in our hospital while dealing with the lives of others. Today in the ER I was assaulted by the male head nurse who try to grab my phone & swung at me after asking for his name. He did not want to provide his name so I decided to take a pic of his ID that was hanging around his neck. This hospital needs to be shut down!! The lack of humanity and compassion for others is very sad. This place is NOT needed in our community. We need to address such issues to have nurses and doctors fully evaluated and trained on how to properly service the people of NYC.Abu Miah If it’s between 0 or 1 I’d rather give 0. Mother had chest pains along her right side ribs under her arm and we waited an hour to be seen. There was a small packet as paperwork that must be filed before even seen. Then we were called to come into the Triage and waited another 30 minutes for the doctor to come to us. If it’s a life and death situation for you and youre suicidal well look no further just come to this ER with a random claim and let nature carry you off. The receptionist was highly rude to everyone. Later came to realize that receptionist was actually a nurse or medical aid. I have pictures of the other aids just relaxing on their phones in plain sight while there no one to take in the paperwork from me and 3 other people trying to file and wait to be seen. For some reason everything leading up to actually being seen by a doctor was extremely horrible. The doctor was cool. Everything else leading up to being seen was a disaster. Please just go another ER if need be. Update: She needs xrays done on her chest…….almost 2 hours to find out it’s something serious. I stand by what I said earlier, you would come here to die.Sidra Gull It’s worst place please don’t waste your time here they don’t pay any attention waiting from 7 hours and nobody call me yet for treatment it’s worst place in New York.receptionist have very bad attitude.Joel Nunez You basically come here to die, by the time you get seen you’ll be a skeletonMs.Enjoli Im actually here right now it is 4:45am. As soon as you come in there is nobody at the desk to check you in. You look back the triage nurse mouth open asleep. I was sranding in pain for 10mins until the security guard woke up the triage nurse to help me. So i go to registration after filling out this annoying packet, with that dirty looking pen and the registration lady (with long butterfly lashes) come dragging her feet, looking like she was taking a couple shots. (She didnt have a name tag, unfortunately). She had a nasty attitude…smh…never going back ever.SincerlyMariex3 Jacobi Hospital is one of the worst hospitals in the bronx. You wait hours to been seen by a doctor even if you’re in horrible pain. They say if you aren’t “dying” or “bleeding” then your condition isn’t to severe. What if I’m bleeding internally, how would they know without checking me. Horrible service and the front desk staff are rude. I don’t recommend to take any loved ones there or a tone for that matter !Sweet Luscious Took my grandbaby to pediatrics emergency room, thought because it was empty. I would be seen promptly. After sitting for an hour grandbaby starts to cry that she couldn’t take the headache I go to the nurse ( Dana) wouldn’t give last name. Asked for tylenol her response was to call hospital police. Wasn’t rude or disrespectful to the point that hospital police told me to call patient relations. But of course they are gone for the day. From my point it seemed like she was racist. It’s a shame that you go for help and not only the nurses act like they get to choose who gets seen and over use their power. Jacobi needs to have patient relation there after four. Ppl are not only patients 9 to 4. Disgusted with her treatment. Wouldn’t take my puppy to pediatric. Dana should be ashamed of her racist self. She in the wrong profession. You know she did something wrong when refused to give last. Makes you wonder that she has done this before. fahim reza Very very long wait. Avoid this ER if you can. Staff are cordial but very slow processing. For simple thing, you may waste 3/4 hours waiting on line.Giavanna La Rosa Disgusting staff and hospital. I had liver failure and was throwing up violently and so lightheaded and turning yellow. They told me there was nothing they can do and had me wait 3 hours in the waiting room. The nurse told me he was tired. I was screamed at by old lady at desk and ignored by black lady. Security card was kicking people’s purses. Worst expirience of my life. Don’t go!!!!Sulaiman Khan I’m in the ER .. I’ve been here since 8 pm. I have a cut on my finger and i need to get stitches.. I still haven’t been seen and currently it is 12:43 am.. There are patiens here who’ve been here since 7:15. That’s over 5 hours and 30 minutes..this is insane.. We need stitches.. we can’t be in a hospital’s ER for almost 6 hours to just get a stitch! The city needs to check up on the hospital!leo urena Nurse was on her phone entire time . My chest was getting tight from an allergic reaction and no one cares . I don’t know why they have a receptionist is they just sit there and do nothing. Also staff seems to not have dress code because nurse had a zip up with her entire cleavage outJessica Gonzalez First time I came I was about to miscarry and they weren’t even going to let me through even though I begged because I was bleeding very badly. Luckily a nurse grabbed me and led me back because she was more concerned than the receptionist. If it wasn’t for her I would have miscarried while waiting to be called. Next two times I had to use the ER, I waited hours and hours. I ended up leaving. They hadn’t called anyone in 5 hours and there were people who had been there 12 hours! The staff was uncommunicative and people waiting were left to ask questions. The staff was accommodating to the questions but you would never know what’s going on unless you went up to them and asked. Poor communication and the nurses are not pleasant at all, except for my first visit , but I haven’t seen her since. I’ll never go back to Jacobi AGAIN.Lidia Korkina This place needs to be shut down. I have spent 8 hours in this ER with internal bleeding and left the place untouched. They did not stop bleeding nor even tried. Performed tests just to charge insurance and said you need to follow up with your doc. What is this??!!Genesis Rodriguez I went in with my 7 year old daughter for a uti, I waited 5 hours and left frustrated. She was never seen!Camille Deroche Came with my friend for support with her baby at 7. 30am today 6/30/29)Staff informed us that we could not be seen until 8 30am because it is almost change of shift… what happened to nursing being 24/7Sofia Aguilar⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️8/23/18- pediatric ER We Arrived at the hospital at 12 am and my son was discharged at 1:40 am. The waiting time was not bad at all ! I really like the the doctors that took care of my son. They were very kid friendly especially the supervising doctor she was just great! My son laughed even though he hated the fact that he was at the hospital and of course sick. What kid likes being at the hospital? The nurse at the traige very nice ! The reason why i gave them a 4 star was the nurse at registration. She was so rude not even a hi how can i help u. All she asked what was wrong with him and sign in. The other lady at registration was alot better however when i gave her my id along with my son’s insurance she said she didnt need my id we don’t care about u. It seem like she was playing around however i don’t think it was very nice of her.Nadir Mushib i would rather die then come back here and wait over 9 hours to see a doctor.Stedroy Hazel Such a disgrace of a hospital..the Bronx deserves better!Kamal Hossain I think Jacobo medical center er need to close. Becca’s there is so many edited workers the don’t know what the are doing.Sherrol Davis Worse hospital ER ever and their customer services sucks. Everyone has an attitude problem. Been here from 5:20pm in pain and 5 hours later I’m still sitting in the waiting area still in pain. I would never come back to this ER.Kryzanni Samuels If I could give zero stars, I would. The level of care I received here was atrocious. I waited for over 8 hours just to leave unsatisfied. I never got to speak with a doctor, and nurses were too preoccupied laughing and speaking with one another. Nurses there really hate their jobs. Most show absolutely no level of professionalism. Do yourself a favor and research emergency medical centers that are actually worth your time. You would be doing yourself a huge Injustice by expecting emergency services from Jacobi Medical Center’s Emergency Department.Christina You know those doctors and nurses who purposely kill their patients for a kick you hear about on those detective shows about murderers? Apparently they all seem to work here.Chung C Cheah The ER is the worst place I had been waiting for six hours , nobody came to take care me . All the nurses and doctors just talking to each other . Really disappointed! In addition, when I went to second appointment, it also took me 2 hours to wait , all staffs seem too busy , but doing nothing.Bella Jimenez ZERO – ZERO – ZERO – NOT WORTH IT AT ALL. HAF BEEN WAITING TO SEE A DOCTOR FOR OVER 6 HOURS AND NOTHING… DONT WASTE YOUR TIME IN THIS HELL HOUSE.ARIANNA ANDERSON This hospital should be close. It is the worst hospital.Joel Ed WORSE PLACE TO GO, NEVER GO HERE. I WENT HERE WITH MY DAUGHTER, HAVING HIGH FEVER, VOMITING ETC…. THEY MADE ME WAIT MORE THAN 6 HOURS. I ALSO WENT TO GET CHECKED AT ABOUT 10 PM IT WAS 4 AM AND THEY HAVENT EVEN CALLED ME AT ALL… STAFF VERY RUDE AS WELL….Aj R⭐️⭐️⭐️Well, today was a miracle, because my husband was called in less than an hour, for chest pain. it was pretty empty tho. He signed in at 11:00 pm and called before 12:00 am. They took x-rays by 12:30…. I guess it depends on what time you go too.Maritz P This hospital does not respect patient when they are sick at all a manager needs to see employee in the emergency room and call there attention and hospital need to learn to see both patient meaning emergency and non emergency if other hospital could do it and they have less people in the emergency . And hire new employee.My Honey Bear At 6:52 I signed my son in to have his sutures removed from a car accident we were in 11 days prior. We was discharged from the ER at 11:17pm. There is no reason why a suture removal would take 4 hrs. When asked to speak to the ER manage Mr. Worthy at 9:31 he did not have the decency to speak to me at least at 11pm.Jesus Will Reign⭐️⭐️⭐️It’s like nobody is running the place. The doctors however are helpful and usually get what you need.FaniL Alcober 6 hours waiting to get in, so I dont know how they call it emergency, is it a desasterBrayant Gonzalez If i can rate this place lower i would im here right now broken shoulder and i cant even get 2 ice packs im a big guy im not complaining about the wait (super long btw)but come on the staff are so disrespectful its not even funnyjordan lopez This hospital did the unthinkable and refused to give me emergency health care. The only way I’d go to this hospital is if I’m unconscious and the EMT’s bring me. And if I can walk when I wake up, I’d probably leave AVOID IF AT ALL POSSIBLEChingiz Jirembayev This is a worst medical treatment I’ve ever encountered with… the serving time is insanely long… I’ve waited for 5 hours, and eventually left the building not being taken by a doctor… NEVER GOT THIS EMERGENCY ROOM!!!melanie bordoy If I can give zero stars I would. Worst hospital in the Bronx if you’re a trauma case then perfect because they’re a butcher shop but if you’re in need of some professional sensitive medical attention then this is definitely not the hospital to go to.Suzette L I should have read the reviews. I took my son to the ER because he injured his foot playing basketball and I wanted to be sure it wasn’t broken. We waited 6 hours to be seen. When I complained I was told by an uneducated woman that they had emergencies that they had to attend to. Um hello?!!. I didn’t go there to play cards, my sons injury was an emergency as well. The woman was rude and admonished me in front of another patient and had the patient giving me the stink eye. What’s wrong with simply saying, let me find out what’s going on, please be patient?. Instead the moron says that she had to prioritize and take care of sick babies first. These people need training on how to speak to patients. There were so many parents bringing in their kids because the kids had a cold. A COLD! Don’t these people have pediatricians? Well they should. An emergency room full of kids with the sniffles! I couldn’t believe it! Don’t go to this hospital! Staff is so unprofessional. I heard someone’s very loud ring tone screaming obscenities. A member of staff! In a pediatric ER! So many of the staff were just gossiping, laughing and carrying on like they were at a barbeque. DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSPITAL! GHETTO, UNPROFESSIONAL STAFF WITH THE INTELLIGENCE OF A GNAT!Heshan Ekanayaka Welcome to Jacobi. Like no other place in the world..the worst Urgent care…Hospital’s should be vulnerable places to help seekers but this place ..ugh.. if u want to die,while u waiting this place could be your best bet…Nathaniel Query I walked in here at 3pm with extreme back pain, unable to move without pain, and I’m still here at 9pm. Only my name and blood pressure taken. This is insane.brii brii The worse hospital ever my husband wasnt feeling well and made him wait for 5 hours these people dont care about people but if that was their family they would be getting all mad for making them wait that long they should be more like white plains ny hospital they dont make you wait no matter what condition you are they care about people the only hospital i trust with my life the bronx is horrible they probably would let me die there and not care at all dont go to that hospital its bad ..Layla Smith The nurse was on a personal phone call on her cellphone while people waited to be checked in. On top of that she is rude and hostile to people that need EMERGENCY CARE!! Get a new job then a**holeKirsary Compres Been here since 5. It is currently 10 and I have yet to see a doctor. All I have is a sever ear infection. This could’ve all been done in less than 2 hours. Short of staff. Unorganized. Unprofessional. I am currently waiting to be seen by the doc which could maybe last another 3 hours to more. Horrible. Do not come to this hospital unless your in labor or literally dying. Hospital recommendation: mount Sinai in 113th street. Guarantee you’ll be out in an hour n a half depending on what you’re there for. I don’t know why I didn’t go there to begin with.Night Rider A whole lot of low lives work here.. acting Hollywood with your 14$hr job.Karmen Lopez Never mind i almost die there idiot nurse she give me a lot of medicine that make me a heart atack u need more reasons faris almohammadi i was waiting for 8 hours to see doctor And the workers don’t care about the patients It’s more bad hospital in new york cityClarice Marchena⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Good care, long wait timeDean Greer Been here for almost 2 hours and nobody even bothered to check on my girlfriend, worse yet the guy back their was here before her and nobody even cared to heck in the poor guySandeep Reddy Called them trying to locate a friend of mine who was admitted a day ago.

My friend has been here since 5:00pm and its currently 2:37pm and no one has even offered water or anything. The staff is rude and they are very inattentive there is no reason why we should have to wait almost 10 hrs and have not been seen yet. If you want to die and you’re sick come to this hospital.Lena Ayres My grandmother died here. She needed oxygen and they put her near a door.
