Ratings for New York-Presbyterian Hospital
HIGH MRSA and other bacteria rate. Higher than any other hospital in the area. I got MRSA in OR 11. Someone put dirty hands or instruments on my surgical wound. It took them 3 weeks to figure out what it was, my surgeon never checked the cultures that were back in 4 days. The lady in the bed next to me had a lung transplant. She was exposed because twice daily the residents cut dead tissue out of my now crater hole in my stomach. Staff was AWFUL, would not assist with me anything even first day post op. Dr was horrible. It was ALL horrible for almost a year of my life and on a PICC line on and off for the rest of my life. Stay away from this filthy hospital!
Excellent MD's. Excellent staff too. My husband and I have received almost all our medical care at NYPH (68th St) for over 40 years. We feel very safe there - we both have obscure medical conditions and NYPH MD's diagnosed each of us after we each had been misdiagnosed at various medical centers. We have had a total of 3 hospitalizations and surgeries and we are both grateful for the care provided by the doctors, nurses and other staff at NYPH.
I live in walking distance of Presbyterian and have used it many times. My PCP is there (she's fantastic!),I've had most of my tests there and underwent surgery there as well. My experiences have been incredibly mixed. I've had great Dr.s there and at least two I wanted to strangle. I've had great nurses and dreadful ones. The restrooms in the office areas are often disgusting.My hospital stay for surgery was FAR below average. I was moved to a room from recovery at 4AM only to learn that the previous occupant of my bed had moved to a private room to escape my rude and thoughtless roommate. (She turned the overhead light on at 5AM!) Since I was scheduled for release that morning, there was no reason (other than being able to bill the insurance for a hospital room) to put me through this. Finally the food was so inedible that I waited till I was released to have breakfast. I had my last surgery at NYU's Langone -which, while inconvenient, was a much better experience.
My 32 yo daughter has an extensive history of post surgical infections due to a subclass immune deficiency, and has previously lost use of a arm due to this. She was admitted in Feb2013 for a pneumothorax, and finally discharged Aug, 2013 (due to one infection after another & having half of a lung/2 ribs removed). When readmitted AGAIN 2 weeks later for the same continuing infection she was discharged with, she is now under a medical team that is terrible. Her primary care for 3 weeks has been predominantly under a 4th year medical student who is dismissive, doesn't know what he is doing with such a complex case, yet is the voice recommending what direction her treatment will be going in...She's still currently inpt. now - we have involved Patient Services - next will be Joint Commission & Health Dept. This admission has been not only uncoordinated, but she is worse after admission than before entering...
The majority of young doctors are not knowledgeable nor good in caring for patients and have attitudes. They are not properly supervised by the senior doctors and do not communicate properly to them the patient's history, condition or progress. The regular medical floors have a shortage of nurses and this hurts the patient's care. These two shortcomings put patients' care in danger.
EXCELLENT HOSPITAL AND DOCTORS AND ALL THE STAFF. MY HUSBAND WAS RECOMMENDED HERE AND TO DR. DELPIZZO WHO IS ALSO SO QUALIFIED AND SINCERE. WELL EDUCATED AND KNOWS HIS STUFF. VERY THOROUGH AND QUICK TO ADHERE TO PATIENTS NEEDS AS WELL AS HIS EXCELLENT EXPERTISES.ALSO AN EXCELLENT AND PATIENT SECRETARY (MARINA0.
Great hospital if you need a full body transplant but if you need basic safe surgery and humane care I do not recommend this hospital. As a Registered Nurse (44 yrs) I picked this hospital on two separate occasions. During my first horrific experience I had a Mastectory and they didn't have a bed for me. I was on a gurney for 5 hours and when the recovery room closed for the night I sat in a chair for 10 hours. Complication: drain infection with terrible long term incision pain. Had to return to Emergency Room. Today's experience had two massive hemorrhages in right eye, which required surgery. Underwent very complicated surgery sent to recovery and told that I couldn't stay in the hospital longer than 30 min. Left as told and had a repeat hemorrahge due to leaving too soon after surgery. Unsure if vision will now ever return.
