Before you go to Sharp Grossmont Hospital, you may want to know what the people who have already gone to this La Mesa emergency room think.
Ina SandersWorst staff ever. They do more socializing and flirting with each other than patient care. The whole reason they are so backed up is because they can’t tear themselves away from the conversations they are having about whos sleeping with who to treat the patients. I spent 9 hrs there only to have to leave against medical advice. I wasn’t being treated anyway. Might as well suffer at home.Rev. Dr. Will GreenTonight at Sharp Grossmont was he worst emergency room experience I’ve had in years. I am a cardiac patient with a defibrillator and numerous recent heart surgeries and admissions. Tonight I came to their ER with severe chest pain and irregular rhythm. It took them an hour and a half to draw my blood correctly, they never interrogated my defibrillator pacemaker, they administered nitroglycerin without following up to see if it helped or made it worse…..and then brought me morphine and then fentanyl without my request or consent, which I refused…., and then wanted to admit me to an observation unit instead of a regular cardiac floor.. Both the charge nurse and the admitting hospitalist doctor verified that all this was substandard and totally unacceptable. I left against medical advice and went to a different hospital. This is the kind of malpractice that kills people.Carolina Contreras⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI was there last night due to a car accident. Loved the care and attention I was provided. Thank all of you for the easy and safe process!gonzalo zunigaThis is the second time they “misspelled” a name of a patient and the insurance wasnt able to cover them (including me) because it wasnt the “right” name, im starting to think they do this on purpose, someone should investigate this, so unacceptable.Yuki Takahashi⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI went to the ER and was seen right away. the doctor came in before I was even worked up. the they went over and beyond. I was admitted and had excellent care.Lissa HallVery dirty lobby and restrooms. Waited hours and hours to be seen. Would give this place zero stars if was able to. People in lobby literally crying out in pain and to be seen. Staff threatens to have them removed. Never again would I come here.Jerry T. 559They where so rude. I came in just for a blood test and to check my personal health but they were being loud and kept making me feel uncomfortable plus they went through my bag when I don’t think they’re supposed to. I did nothing wrong other then come for a walk in.Diana SanchezThe absolute worse hospital I have ever been to. Don’t expect privacy or a bed. They weigh you in front of everyone and give you your diagnosis in the waiting room in front of everyone. The beds were empty but they treat everyone in chairs and in the waiting room. An absolute disgrace. The place smells like urine and vomit. I only came here because I was referred from urgent care. The doctors and nurses do what they can however administration is unprofessional! Save yourself the trouble and go ANYWHERE else.TheLastHotSauceMy mother went in at 11am to the emergency room because of a previous incident a few days ago. They did her blood work, EKG etc.. However they did not let her eat the entire day. She had to wait 3-4 hrs per exam like x-ray, wait 3 hrs, blood work, 3 hours… She finally got out at 9pm!!! They didn’t let her eat, just kept telling her that it will be soon for the next exam. My mother is 69 years old and she got so angry that they kept her the entire day without food. Theres no reason for her not to eat, they just kept telling her to wait for a doctor to come. At the end of the night, she was so angry her blood pressure shot to 200 ! Horrible staff and patient care… They literally forgot about my mother and passed her onto the next nurse. We own a restaurant, we know some times it can be crazy, short staff. But not letting a 69 year old woman not eat for 10 hrs is just plain negligence… Shame on you!Teresa Head ColonJust horrible that you have to pay for parking to take your child to the emergency room. The parking attended was so rude.jay emThis is THE WORST staff of nurses and Doctors in san diego comparable to paradise valley hospital where people just flat out die at from basic care in the ER. Nurses spend thier time casually chatting with thier coworkers about how much they hate thier job and every time ive been here of a total of four times, nurses have tried to mock patients or mimic them or crate jokes about them as if patients arent human and theyre so incredibly loud as if you cant hear them!!! Do not come to this hospital ER EVER! You will GET staff infection with MRSA and you automatically have a 50% chance of being worse off coming out than going inJan Riley⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedWhen I went for kidney stone the nurses were great and the place was nice and tidy and sheets were crisp and cool. I was treated very kindly and professional. Five stars for them!Reza NaderiIt is very very bad ☹️☹️ every thing is not good , emergency is not busy but 2-3 hours after call back or your going to fighting the nurse or checking people the call you .ChiloePlease avoid at all costs. This was unfortunately the closest ER to our campground in Julian after a third degree burn emergency. Doctors and nurses completely mistreated and wrongly diagnosed the burned areas sending my friend to the UCSD burn center a week later resulting in a five night stay. While leaving the hospital a male nurse shouted “Don’t fall into another fire pit!” and the nurses around him all snickered. Why did you get into the business of helping others when can’t even show an ounce of empathy or professionalism.H S⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedWonderful people doctors and nurses Made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions and took good care of me , God bless you all.denisse hernandezI give it one star ⭐️ because the least amount of time to spend here is 5hrs, been here alot of times for different reasons and one time I had to wait 8hrs! Was false diagnosed and was send home. 3-4 days after they called to apologize saying that they were wrong about my diagnosis ♀️. If you come to this ER be prepared to spend alot of time here.Zul Karnain⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️i took my wife there she was happyLaura S.This ER is totally inefficient and disorganized. The waits are exasperatingly long, you get handed off to different nurses who don’t give your info so no one keeps track of who u are or how long you’ve been waiting and for what. They’ll come out to the waiting room and openly tell u about ur situation in front of everyone (no confidentiality??) and everything is a step by step process that literally takes 100x longer than it needs to. I was in a room with the curtain open and several staff walked by like just oogling at me! So unprofessional and rude. Some also made sexual comments and shameful remarks right in my face. The rooms have trash on the floor, and sometimes there’s no rooms available so ur in a bed in the hallway. But they come like a super sonic bat to collect ur copay! U can expect to wait at least 6 hours before being seen. Horrible.Rami IbrahimBad service They kill time The last doctor to see youBp PbNo wonder locals go down south for real medical treatment and cures! (No way the body can cure itself without prescriptions?!)This place is a Laughing stock at best..This is what this ER NEEDS to work on. From the front desk to the majority of nurses/staff-service, most are a bunch of cocky 25-35 year olds with no empathy(talking about patients puts the cherry on top)Discord in their triage system. Several times I would encounter, listen in on patients that should have been discharged only to have had a nurse come up and say”he/she hasnt seen you yet”? After results and everything has been completed. You have people already uncomfortable waiting way longer than necessary. No sense of urgency from the place what so ever. I would not even think about bringing someone here in critical condition as ive seen people suffering in the waiting room for everyone to see instead of having them be put into another room(decency and privacy much?) 1 star goes to the PA’s and nurses and staff who actually care and truly went into the medical field to help people, not only to receive a nice paycheck and talk behind peoples backs.. Even though you have cell phone jammers at your facility just remeber, people are hearing watching your unprofessionalism..Hani CorrosionThey diagnosed me wrong and that will cause me my life. Now I am disabledMark SomesonThis Hospital is the worst in San Diego. I arrived with a spinal cord injury at 6:00pm it is now 2:30 am. And still have not seen the Doctor if you want to call these jockers by that tita If you are in need of medical care even if you can only find a veterarian. Because the could dance circles around the wanabe daoctors sharp hiresAlondra MadrigalWorst Experience of my ENTIRE LIFE. I left with tears in my eyes. Most doctors and nurses could care less. I am strictly voicing in regards to why happened to me today. I went to the ER with my partner, abdominal pain, vomiting etc.. My partner was in a lot of pain and the physician that assisted her with approving medication and course of treatment was PA GINA. She decided to send me and my partner home while we were in tears begging for her help. SHE LIED TO US. She said she would help! She did NOT! She had us sitting in the waiting room for atleast 6hrs before telling my partner the CT SCAN RESULTS were clean. Worst nightmare ever. If Gina ever reads this I know you know who we are and we are VERY DISAPPOINTED. Never in my life did we ever imagine getting turned away while someone is crawled up fetal position crying for help. I hope your kids don’t ever go through what we went through. I am truly disappointed and hurt with the service. If you can go to another hospital I recommend you do. And for “Management” if you would like to run the security tape go ahead and see for yourself. Disgusting.christine higginsI’m tired of Sharp employees complaining that Sharp is only hiring perduim and not giving them insurance, some employees claim they have worked at Sharp for 9 years as a perduim employee with no insurance. I get a letter to see how much I’m going to donate in my pcp name. Who does that. Sharp is either hurting or greedy. They lost my son in the ER claim confindialty. I’m on my son’s medical record constant to speak to doctors. I guess if they gave employees insurance while they work for them they could stop hiring warm bodies and keep the good employees.Noorullah SulaimanshahThis is the one if the worst hospitals I have ever seen. We went there and waited 5 hours just for a blood results. The rooms are ripped and the beds are so bad. Nurses are very rude and they don’t even talk to you. I hardly recommend this hospital.Pati SanDiegoNot the “Sharp Experience”. Spent 7 hrs. in the ER and wrongly diagnosed and discharged home. Was called by ER doctor the next day tell me to go back to ER to be admitted for a life threatening illness.Skull RocketsMy wife has Scoliosis and Degenerative Disc Disease and her nerves were being pinched so she could barely sit upright and her arm was going numb and was in cronic pain. She’s had back surgery before and the x-rays showed that her discs are collapsing and crushing her nerves. She can barely walk from the pain and her blood pressure was 199/101 so we went there and they wouldn’t even get a wheelchair for her, much less a bed for her to lay in when i asked. And while we waited for literal hours to be helped, i could see them shopping online on their computers instead of helping her. Any of her suffering is on their head now. Worst Emergency Care EVER. Do yourself a favor, and maybe even save your life, and go somewhere else.عباس حسينSo so bad !!! The worst!!!!Janis Aucoin⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedIn February and March my right hip dislocated and the paramedics took me to the ER. I got see right away and took care of me. The doctors were very caring and helped with pain I was in. The Attending doctors were awesome. Will always go to Grossmont.Marty Livanos⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI have always had great service, being that its the only ER in east county with a high volume of patients they do their best to provide good service!Ashley BoltE.R. experience Dr. Weinstein falsified almost all notes on record, staff didn’t even take down the right triage notes… didn’t do half the things or ask half the questions the notes on record were about. 8 hrs in the e.r. with worst head of my life, wouldn’t have went unless I thought I was literally dying. Would rather die at home in a quiet place with people that actually care than listen to e.r. staff gossip, see transient after transient leave with their fix and a smile and feel like a drug seeker myself.Linda ParkerDon’t waste your time. I bring my boyfriend in for shoulder pain & upper respiratory infection & the took an xray, gave him ibuprofen & told him to buy flonase. His snot is green. They never looked in his nose even though I brought a picture. Now I have to take him to another ER or the doctor’s office. If a man asks to be taken to the ER he’s in pain & sick. I’m not coming back.Josette RogersNot sure we got helped. Be careful. We went in with a broken knee and they we’re checking us out of the ER before they even completed the check-in. They didn’t even get the person’s name. The person doing the check out wouldn’t wait 10mins so we wouldn’t have to come back with a broken knee the next day. She would not help us fill out the paperwork for temp disability, nor emergency medi-cal, and when we mentioned we didn’t have a vehicle and it was only 10 min. She said she just couldn’t. We’ve gone back to get the paper work done but they failed again only completing half the paperwork. Now 3wks later after being given the run around they tell us they can no longer help us. We are not homeless but the person with the broken knee was and has been using our address which he gave them and they still without sympathy kicked us out into the cold and we could not wait for our ride inside. For a place that is supposed to be about healing and caring it sure looked like it was all about the numbers. They’re just getting worse.Eddie GarciaTrash place , slow employees. I’ve been sitting in the ER for over 2hrs for a simple infection that can be cured with antibiotics. The pain is getting worse. I asked for a simple accommodation, and some water, none of which was given to me. I don’t know why I came back to this place, my dad died here in the ICU and during that time he was just treated like a number instead of a cancer patient.Mario Enrique Torres⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI like it because if i need any thing just call for it. I go 4 Therapy at the Brier Pauch Physical Therapy and i do enjoy them they help u to get better.Summer joyA star for nurses, Sandy Sheilah and Liz. Long story but spent 10 pm in ER admitted to shared room for IV antibiotics which didnt get until 4 days after every single exspensive test known ie: cat scan MRI 2 ultra sounds.the infectious disease doc on day 4 or 5 diagnosed Pseudomonas fluorescen putida and I got IV meds. I was sent home to early with oral antibiotics that I finished and now Um much worse. I spent a week with an elderly sick woman who only used a bed pan and everytime food trays came her bowels were a rolling. Her family of many stayed all day every day and because she vouldnt speak English and very few nurses spoke Spanish they would tell into their smartphone translation always between 12 midnight to 5 am usually at least3 to 4 times. Finally got off the observation floor and admitted on day 5 to my own room Yahoo. Started healing as well. Dr. Fu said I was able to go home, I specifically said yes I’m eager to be home however only if I’m well enough. Don’t want to return. Well I wont return ever… going to a different hospital ER per my own MD and my surgeon. This all stems from a worker comp claim and Luberty Mutual hasnt been very good about any follow through. Overall even though I gave birth to 3 kids at Grossmont and always have gone there. Never again unless forcedI MWe have been waiting in the ER for 6 hours on a Wednesday afternoon. My friend had heart palpitations, neuropathic pain, is losing cognative skills, and is losing motor function in her entire right side. Sharp has continuously dismissed her! Told her it’s all in her head, not listening or helping to find a solution. I would recommend another insurer, if you pay for insurance. If not go to Sharp Memorial. As much as Kaiser annoys me I have never waited this long, or been dismissed by doctors and nurses in such an extream way. My friend was put at the bottom of the list for care because her chart states her as bi-polar and having had addiction problems, oh and she has Medi-Cal. She did not go to the ER seeking ANY pain medication and routinely refuses it and is then told she must not be in pain if she doesn’t want it. After 8 HOURS when we were finally seen the female doctor who saw her was rude, condecending and only wanted to focus on issues that had nothing to do with her visit. Doctors, you work for the patients, try to remember that! This is just disgusting. SHAME ON THE ER STAFF AND THE DOCTOR WHO SAW HER TONIGHT. Lesson learned for her, do not ever go to this ER again. Maybe if she had the flu they would have taken her serously. For any doctors reading this please try to have some empathy and actually care for the people you are treating that pay your 6 figure salary. A shout out to most of the nurses who at least treated her like a person.Krystina Storm⭐️⭐️The last two times i have been admitted unto the hospital, the ER DOCTOR completely ignored all information given him about what meds i take, how much, AND AT WHAT TIME!! TWO TIMES NOW, I have been LEFT to SUFFER with my Restless Leg Syndrome ALL NIGHT! On top of that, i can’t even take a sleep med, UNLESS I HAVE HAD MY REQUIP!! Should i just expect to be ignored, and left to suffer, if i consider getting help. To be honest, though i was admitted for my kidney function, i originally because i was suicidal at home. I CAME HERE SO I WOULD BE OKAY!! Do you think lack of sleep helps, or the pain of the restless legs, or the being ignored, like i mean nothing! I could have stayed home, and ended things. Considering i am having to spend rhe rest of the night awake, since Dr. Paul won’t be showing up until 7:00am, i will have been awake most of 2.5 DAYS!!! THANKS FOR LISTENING, DOC!!Ashley EntenmannDISCRIMINATION AGAINST HOMELESS PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES! I am homeless right now and have an emotional support dog for a mental disability I am plagued with and I am being told that they are calling the police and can ONLY see me if i let the police take my service dog to the pound! I need my foot X-rayed and I’m having an adverse reaction to my new medication and am being told I cannot be treated. This is discrimination and I am truly disappointed & disgusted!Rios WatkinsHorrible ER wait time is ridiculously long and a lot lazy nursing staff doing nothing on there phones when they should be helping youTrena MichelleYou are getting contaminated beds from Hii-Rom. The equipment is not being sterilized. I have made a compliance complaint with Hill-Rom.BadMonkey915I wonder if I have a better chance of survival at a VA hospital…H Michael BammerlinI’m on my fifth hour of waiting now and still not seen.Luke DelgadoRude security with rude jokes ,drug addicts in there , and rude staff slow workersJA LongBeen here 8 hours still waiting for oncology nurseTyler HowlandGot hit by a car 3 hrs ago, brought in an ambulance and I’m still bleeding in the ER waiting for a room.Harry L.
