Summary
1. Doctors do NOT listen to the patient and properly address/assess health problems/chief complaints
2. Subpar facilities (no access to showers, etc)
3. Rude staff
4. Overly zealous to discharge patients, even when their health problems are not under control
5. Rooms, floors and hallways are ALWAYS noisy, so you cannot get any sleep

A family member recently went to Beth Israel. The second we walked into the ER door and got in line for the registrar, a nurse swore at us and told the whole line to "get out of the f**king way." We were in the waiting room for 2 hours, which was to be expected. However, there was no air conditioning or source of appropriate ventilation; this, of course, is essential in a hospital ER waiting room of all places! Once admitted, my family member was put in a noisy room (i.e. loud speakers/intercoms in each room, floor shining at 1 AM, and a patient who was yelling at the nurses in the hallway for an hour or so). The room did not have a shower. So, if you stay there for a length of time, count on a heavy dose of body odor. After a few tests, they discharged him without any conclusion pertaining to his original complaint. At the time of discharge, I asked for a course of antibiotics as a prophylaxis, since hospitals are breeding grounds for MRSA, VRSA, etc, and because my family member has an immunocompromised system. They dismissed the request.

4 days later, he was advised to go back to the ER. This time he went to New York Presbyterian Hospital, where doctors confirmed that he has pneumonia, and that it was more than likely a case of hospital acquired pneumonia....which could have been prevented if the doctor had my family member's best interests at heart. Since they also discharged him without concluding what was wrong with him, he was exceptionally weak, which also brought him back to the ER. Again, they did not have his best interests in mind.

Pros: NONE

Cons: Just about anything you can think of (not joking)
