I was brought in by ambulance due to heart/back and abdominal pain. They left me in the waiting area for over an hour and then someone named Pedro came over with a security guard to find out why I was there. Outraged Nd unable to get a reasonable answer as to why when I opened my eyes; there was a security guard there instead of the medical assistance I came for. Needless to say after hearing all the fun and laughter in the admitting area; I left. By the way Miriam Hospital found that I have a tumor. Thanks Rhode Island Hospital.

First the positive- most of the hospital is clean and the patient rooms have been upgraded in the past 5 years or so. If you are having heart trouble or major trauma, this is the place to be. Most of the nursing staff is dedicated and caring, with many years of experience. The bad- The ER is overcrowded with illegals seeking primary care, ****s and gangbangers. If your doctor can admit you directly, you would be much better off. Some staff look and act like thugs, and others have limited english skills. There has been problems with wrong site surgeries in the past few years, many involving neurosurgery. The psychiatric department is not recommendated, go to Butler if you need it. A definite mixed bag here.
RUN...don't walk...away from this FILTHY place that where the staff tell their right from their left and where meds are only given 1/2 the time.
