Filthy floors, apathetic/rude staff, my mother was in for a surgery and was told she could have a sponge bath but there was "no soap" and we watched as her elderly roomate was not allowed to leave and 2 massive security guards keep her from leaving. Was also scolded by a PA for coming in for ear problems when there was an urgent care (I was busy until after they closed and have a history of very severe ear infections). The man looked in my right ear "this one looks fine" looks in the other "there is fluid in this one" Looks back in my right ear again "oh yeah, there is some in this ear too!" (a week ago)

Complete incompetence, the doctors do not listen to the patient. I've been suffering from excruciating migraines on a daily basis for five months. Every treatment they've tried only makes it worse, they have forgotten to phone medication into the pharmacy twice now. I was supposed to have an MRI with contrast, they forgot to inject the contrast and the MRI only lasted fifteen minutes. I am requesting a REAL hospital with a REAL neurologist when I see my primary in the next couple days. Also, they diagnosed my uncle with a sinus infection....turns out he has a terminal brain tumor! COMPLETE and UTTER INCOMPETENCE run rampant at this hospital of death! Berkshire Murder Center...should be shut down! Disgusting (2 months ago)

When I was calling to check on a friend's health condition and try to comfort him they refused to tell me anything or let me speak to him and they were waiting for his family to tell them what to do, not cool when you love someone you're not blood related to. (2 months ago)

Misdiagnosed 30yrs ago with "migraines" at BMC. Luckily a family member had connections to qualified professionals at Mass General, as soon as my MRI was reviewed at Mass General I was rushed there for brain surgery due to a cavernous angioma. I recently had to go to the ER at BMC once again for hip/leg partial paralysis, after being admitted two days later the Dr's were still scratching their heads...no clue! I spent hours online trying to diagnose myself, low and behold the medical team agreed with my diagnosis and changed some words around to make it sound like they figured it out. Days after being released I saw my primary and my neurologist, both disagreed with BMC's diagnosis and agreed it was not what BMC said. STAY AWAY FROM THIS "HOSPITAL" I've heard and experienced many, many other horrifying stories about this place! There is a reason it's nicknamed Berkshire Murder Center! TOTAL INCOMPETENCE (2 months ago)

AS USUAL THE ER HAS MADE SERIOUS ERRORS IN THE CARE I WAS GIVEN. BAD FALL ON ICE A MONTH AGO. FULL WHOLE BODY SLAM BACKWARDS ON ICE. SO MUCH PAIN COULDN'T MOVE AND OUT OF IT FOR AWHILE. FINALLY GOT IN HOUSE SOMEHOW. CALLED AMBULANCE AND GIVEN NECK BRACE PUT ON BACK BOARD. THEY PUT ME IN BACK HALL UNATTENDED BY A DOC I DO NOT SEE DUE TO LACK OF MISTREATMENT IN PAST. SAID COULD HAVE BLEEDING ON BRAIN ETC. NO PAIN MESS LEAVING ME IN SEVERE PAIN AND IN HALL FOR 3 HOURS WITH NO CHECKING. CATALAN READ BY THAT DOC....SAID WAS FINE SENT HOME. WENT BACK THAT SATURDAY AND HAD PA WHO SAID WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO ABOUT IT. ASKED X-RAY AND DID GIVE SOME PAIN RELIEF. TREAT EVERYONE LIKE DRUG ADDICTS WHEN BMC IS PAIN MANAGEMENT HOSPITAL. SAW MY DOC FEW WEEKS LATER AND X-RAY SHOWED FRACTURED BBACK... BREAK ON SPINE AFTER STATING OK. WAS MARKED URGENT BUT NO ONE CONTACTED. TAKING LIFE IN OWN HANDS GOING THERE BUT NO WHERE ELSE TO GO. NOW HAVE TO GO THROUGH LONG PROCESS TO TAKE CARE OF THIS INSTEAD OF MISTREATMENT AGAIN. WAS RUSHED IN 4 YRS AGO BY AMBULANCE DYING BECAUSE OF MISTREATMENT AND ALMOST DIDN'T MAKE THROUGH SURGERY. THANK GOD FOR BLESSING ME. HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE THEY KILLED ......QUITE A LARGE NUMBER FROM POSTS. AND THEY CALL THEMSELVES DOCTORS AND NURSES WHEN THEY DON'T TAKE THEIR OATHS SERIOUSLY. VERY SAD....VERY INCOMPETENT. (3 months ago)
