The only reason this hospital is getting one star is because zero was not an option. To start off, in the ER, one of the nurses was speaking to the doctor about my father. She mentioned his insurance and then said "you know what that means, suck 'em dry". He needed to be admitted and the nurses on his floor could not be bothered to find him 1 pillow. Not an extra pillow, just the basic pillow you expect to get when you are admitted to a hospital room. They never bothered getting him one so I had to go out and BUY him a pillow. Add on to this that he was admitted in order to receive antibiotics. They claimed to not have any paperwork on that hours after he was admitted...from their own ER. After calling his doctors to speak with the nurses the paperwork mysteriously showed up on their desks. When this hospital was taken over by Larkin I expected things to improve. Sadly, it seems to have worsened. (2 weeks ago)

I am writing this review in hopes that the correct person reads and offers training where needed. My mom was brought to this hospital on 12/19/17. While in the emergency area she was treated quickly although by caretakers that seemed to be frustrated w any questions asked. My mom was admitted and spent the night in ICU area. This area was at first very helpful. Once the night shift came in it became a totally different atmosphere. My sister had to explain to the nurse that they were going to give my mom two doses of medicine which she was suppose to drink one of (scary). A group of nurses aid where laughing and carrying on about one of the patients which seemed to have Alzheimer's. Patient was calling out for her son who was not there. One hospital member said to remedy this he would cover her face w pillow. All aids around him laughed. (Heartbreaking and extremely alarming). The head nurse attending to us was rude and did not like that we asked questions. The next day we were moved to 3rd floor where we were for the night. Best nurse Ms Torres took great care and answered all of our questions. Again nurses aids seemed very annoyed and not thrilled to answer questions. We were thrilled to be able to go home on Thursday late afternoon. Even the nurse who wheeled out my mom downstairs seemed to be so annoyed it was uncomfortable. The staff seemed to be annoyed to work or as if we were interrupting their time to talk and eat among their groups. Please if you are reading this I hope training or action is taken. The care of elderly or injured is a very serious job which requires patience and special care. Most of the staff seemed to be students or newly graduates. Must be monitored by experienced nurses before someone gets hurt. Thank you to the gentleman that took my mom from emergency to ICU; to her CT scans and then to the 3rd floor. All of the testing techs. Very nice and helpful. A special thanks to nurse Torres. All others need to be evaluated. Nights were 12/19 in ICU and night of 12/20 morning of 12/21 on 3rd floor.

I went to Larkin on 03/01/2018 at 5am with a blood sugar level of over 400 mind you having recently had been implanted a heart stent. When i arrived to the ER all nurses were lounging around while I sat feeling death knocking at my door. Also NO NURSES SPOKE ENGLISH. I had to leave and go to another hospital before I died in the waiting room. I have a question for these hospital admin. HOW MANY PEOPLE MUST DIE BEFORE YOU HIRE REAL NURSES? (4 months ago)

This the worse hospital to go to. If you want your family member to die this is the place to go. After 4 visits in ICU and regular room they didn't do the right test that revealed a tumor until a few days ago. He could be alive right now if it were not their mistakes. Please DO NOT trust this hospital! (2 months ago)

Its good if you have a cold or stomach pains. A small injury just basic stuff they can improve alot more (a month ago)
