I went to the ER because I had a pain in my stomach for the past 5 days that would not let me even breath. After 2 hours in the ER, I asked how many people I had in front of me, and they said around 6! There was a person with a broken leg that had to leave the ER because he couldn’t handle the pain anymore, and the nurses were giving him attitude because he was suffering. This person was in the ER for over 2 hours. After 5 hours of wait, I asked how many people I had in front of me, and I had around 4!!!! The nurse was giving me attitude because I was asking. I literally had to leave because I couldn’t wait other 6 hours in order to see a doctor when my pain wasn’t letting me even breath. It’s better to die at home than going to this hospital.

My boyfriend was throwing up blood and yet, we waited four hours. Even the nurses was surprised... and yet no one offer us water especially we been here since 12:30 and now it’s 7:30. All I see everyone talks but no action and don’t really check on their patients.I Feel like Im watching Greys anatomy when they only care about themselves and just getting their check by doing absolutely NOTHING! Therefore awful service and too long to wait for to get some type of attention especially if someone is throwing up blood... common sense people... very very disappointed!!! Also it is very annoying when I see everyone talking and laughing CONSTANTLY!!!! 🤬😡 Why isn’t there any doctors at all seriously... there should be more doctors than interns... or actually have people who focus on their job instead talking to everyone....!!!!

I am very appreciative of the surgical staff. I am 1 day post surgery. The staff was great and very attentive to my needs. The surgery was successful and I am grateful for their competence and expertise. (3 months ago)

Worst hospital in Washington DC. Here’s why... 1. Extremely dirty! Trash in seats almost every seat 2. Rude security guard who was so into her personal call that she couldn’t tell me where to get registered. 3. I was Place in a room that had a huge jar of (urine) on the counter that belonged to the previous patient. 4. Nurse didn’t read my chart before she walked in and proceeded to push down extremely hard on my stomach (not knowing I was pregnant) ! She apologized 30 times for her incompetence 5. I was there for over 7 hours with no explanation I finally got fed up and decided I was leaving (a month ago)
