Location and Directions


Hi ! First of all, let me begin by saying I am a veteran, but love going to Temple Hospital when I have to. I've been to Temple probably 6 or 7 times in the past year either through the ER, or follow up care. I like Temple because the people always have this attitude of caring. In all my appointments, I was greeted professionally and treated as promptly as possible. If I had a question, the person whom I was asking for information made sure that my question was answered. I have never encountered a rude employee. Being in a hospital for a 3 week stay can be challenging. I found the nurses, and doctors at Temple very communicative and understanding. They were always very good about sharing information with you. I never had any procedure "surprised" upon me. I was always made aware of what the next step in my treatment as well as my options.

You are going to wait! 4 to 7 hours to be seen. Unbelievable. Unless you're shot, stabbed, or clinging to life in some way, YOU ARE GOING TO WAIT! Be prepared, pack lunch and dinner, maybe breakfast. Toothpaste, toothbrush, wet wipes. Bring a pillow, blanket, and reading materials. Any paperwork or homework, you have, bring it. Cancel all plans for the next 24 to 48 hours. You will live here. Who knows. It's like walking into a black hole. (a month ago)

Went with my friends to help with her MS she was physically in pain literally crying, no assistance until like 7 hours later. They take there sweet time in Temple er. Treating parents as if they are unimportant. Worst hospital ever. Don't respond with that lame "call the patience department" cause it's obvious that they need new management. (3 weeks ago)

The nurses and doctor were polite and treated me with respect. The problem I have is instead of a call the next morning after my surgery to ask if I'm ok which they told me they would. I instead received a call from the financial department claiming that my insurance which they have previously approved don't cover me if I'm in Philadelphia and I should come to their office to get it transferred. The morning after my surgery. REALLY??? So they tell people everything checks out only to slap you with a huge bill !!!!! (a month ago)

Some of the nurses didn't feel like doing their job....i am on certain medication which if they took the time to call my Dr or even LOOK up my scripts I wouldn't have to have left against medical advice especially having bleeding in my brain you would have THOUGHT to find out my allergies to certain medications as well as my medications so i could at least be comfortable enough to stay....or even just make sure i was comfortable!!!! They checked out my head but never checked out my leg which 3 days later I still can't put full pressure on it and I am still getting HORRIBLE headaches and still dizzy spells!!!! I wish I was alert enough to ask for the charge nurse....i was in and out of a stable mind but when I was I remember saying to them I have worked in the E.r. and know the protocols as well as my rights as a patient....I honestly wish i was in my right state of mind to ask for the charge nurse but I guess with my fall and injuries to my head and the bleeding in my brain unfortunately made me unaware to think to ask.....I WILL NEVER TAKE SOMEONE I LOVE OR EVEN MY PET THERE!!!! Unfortunately before the ambulance came and while I was in the ambulance if i knew they were going to take me there i would HAVE them drop me off at the side of the road!!! Or if i was conscious while i was still home i would have told them to leave and went to the hospital my Dr was affiliated with!!!! If you want horrible care than this is the place to go to!!!! Looks like im not the only one who has something HORRIBLE to say about this "hospital"!!!!!! Some of the male nurses were good but OVERALL CARE WAS UNBELIEVABLY HORRIBLE!!!! (3 weeks ago)
