The nurses were all very nice, except for the one I dealt with on the last day, but I only had to see her a couple of times.

That said, the hospital as a whole needs to get more educated on babies that are exclusivly breastfed. They freaked me out about my baby's weight loss in the first few days and had me supplementing with formula, which I am not against if needed, but wasn't thrilled about. Once I left the hospital I find that my baby's weight loss was totally normal for a breastfed baby, but high for a formula fed baby. They need to quit lumping them together.

Also, the lactation consultants in affiliation with the hospital leave something to be desired. They are too quick to turn to things that can do more harm than good to a mother who wants to breastfeed. They also all say different things... I understand the value of the perspective of an individual, but I would think they would have the basics in line amongst themselves. I would go to the hospital again but I would not use the lactation consultants they provide.

Excellent care for my dying grandfather. The ICU nurses couldn't have been nicer. They took there time to explain everything that was happening & were so compashionate when he passed.

They would rush and went organized at all. They were so unorganized that my wife and I ended up with all your medical papers that they were suppose to keep. The staff were not pleasant or efficient.

Wow! You would think that if you came into a hsopital for an emergency then the staff would take extra time to see you. This was not the case. We came in around 11:30 PM and then we had to sit in the waiting room with a restaurant style "beeper" for over 2 hours! Then when we were finally admitted, we waited another 2 hours till the staff there would attend to us. Not a good experience at all!

PROS: they took our insurance
CONS: long waiting time!
