styoung8⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedFirstly, I was misdiagnosed by an urgent care doctor (not affiliated with Menorah) he said I was suffering from stress induced TMJ and gave me a Xanax prescription. I ended up having an asthma attack and was taken to Menorah. The Menorah staff was very helpful, I was scared and they helped calm me. Less than three hours later they had correctly diagnosed me, turns out I had a thyroglossal duct cyst that was infected and pushing on my airway. I had surgery the next week to get it removed.Christina DrakeI went to the Menorah Emergency Room at my doctor’s direction on a Tuesday afternoon. I have been to a few hospitals before, so I was surprised and a bit disconcerted when I was assigned A Hallway number (not a room number) and a small, stiff pleather “recliner” (clearly not meant for comfort) to sort of lie on. I even watched a man brought in on a stretcher who was curtly told to hop off and get into his assigned “recliner.” This is where patients were registered, triaged, seen by a doctor, implanted with IV’s and medicated. The HIPAA violations were far more than I can enumerate, but here are some examples… I happened to be planted across from the nurses’ station, complete with a monitor displaying all of the patients’ names along with their status (convenient for me to track my own status, but hardly mindful of patient privacy). During our very long wait in the hallway (approximately 3 hours), my daughter, 10-year-old granddaughter and I were privy to all kinds of conversations about patients’ treatments and even a nurse saying she’d like to quit the job, but she needed the money. After about 3 hours in the hallway (x-rays taken and meds administered), we were privileged to be moved into a room. After a few minutes of solitude, a roommate arrived to occupy the other bed behind a curtain. Now, I didn’t catch what her diagnosis was, but all 3 of us (including my granddaughter) couldn’t help but hear many details about her, including her age and weight, symptoms and whether or not she could be pregnant along with a slew of other questions and answers; we even got to listen in on a video consult from an out-of-state specialist. If you want privacy, then you may want to choose another ER! But what really made my experience complete was the discharge “process.” I was told that I would be discharged, but “Oh, by the way, can you provide a sample for urinalysis before you leave to see if you have a UTI?” It seemed an odd sequence, but I wanted to be thorough so if course I did. As we waited and waited for the third nurse I’d had to come and collect the sample, we were suddenly asked to leave the room and stand in the hall for several minutes while they brought in special equipment for my roommate. Mind you, my symptoms included severe hip and leg pain, so walking was not my forte and it was actually extremely painful to sit or stand. Finally the nurse came to discharge me. She glanced at my paperwork and said, “It looks like you have a herniated disc.” OK, that’s not what the doctor said and it’s not in the x-ray report, but whatever… Just get me out of here! So I sign the paper, put on my jacket and attempt to walk. The nurse asks if I want a wheelchair. By now, my pain is back in full force, so I said yes. She disappeared around a corner and I realized she’d gone to hunt one down, so I started hobbling toward the exit. Halfway there, she came with the wheelchair and started wheeling me to the exit when I looked down and realized that my IV port had not been removed. “You might want to take this out,” I said. So right there in the hallway, less than 20 feet from the exit, she stops, grabs some tape from a nearby room and removes the IV. But the most shocking part was when she threw the bloody needle (not wrapped or taped, but just dangling) into a random small regular, unmarked trash can in the hallway. I don’t work in the medical field, but I know that is NOT how you dispose of biohazardous materials. When I told my primary care doctor, his mouth literally dropped! To add insult to injury, I recently received information to sign up for the hospital’s patient portal so that I can access my information. Going through my records, I quickly noticed that even some of my basic information was incorrect. They had my weight listed as 191 pounds. I weigh 164 and have never surpassed 174 in my life, including during pregnancy. They also listed me as never having smoked. I was a smoker for over 30 years until I quit recently, and I’ve never hidden that from doctors.M PMy mother was sent via ambulance to the Emergency Room at Menorah to remove a contact that got stuck and moved towards the side of her face. I received a phone call from the nurse saying they had removed the contact and she was ready to leave. I arrived to pick my mother up and the nurse had left so there were no instructions and she was sitting alone in the lobby even though she clearly has dimentia. The front desk man was also very rude. She continued to have eye pain so I took her to an Optometrist on Monday. The Optometrist ended up removing the contact that was clearly still in my mother’s eye. I’m so upset and sick to my stomach that she was taken to the ER and they left the contact in her eye and lied about removing it. Do not go to Menorah ER! It is not safe!Mike Roznowski⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedTook a while to get in, but staff is great once you get into the ER!!!Aashita SharmaHow I wish I could rate them lower! I was the patient and while I was going through pain that I could not bear(I guess thats why one goes to ER), the nurses kept giving me lectures on how I should be patient, the doctor showed no signs of humanity either. No warm blankets given until you scream and shout at them. Absolutely worst treatment.Marcy GaynesWonderful caring people, however, we were there 2.5 hours last night and the x-ray was never read. We were told there was only one radiologist working for ALL 6 hospitals and the read time was an hour. The hour came and went. Luckily her situation was not dire. Next time we will go to an urgent care center vs the ER for a situation requiring an x-ray.Sanjay Sunkara⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedGood Hospital and excellent doctor
