Terrible Hospital

My 20 year old nephew was admitted with pneumonia. He was at Sf Barnabas for a long time. We witnessed a white discharge in his urine catheter, of which could have been one of two things, a UTI or yeast. They refused to treat either until cultures came back. Meanwhile he had been running a 103 degree fever for days prior to seeing this.He ended up having infiltrated yeast due to long term broad spectrum antibiotics. Instead of treating him for both, of which no harm would have been done for three days, they opted to wait for cultures which put him into septic shock before they came back. As a result of his very low blood pressure and heart rate for hours during septic shock, my 20 year old nephew suffered a stroke from lack of blood flow. This was totally preventable, and just wasn't, at their discretion. Now he has deficits the he previously didn't have from St.Barnabas. Don't go to or allow a loved one to be treated at St. Barnabas. They didn't use a preventable medicine approach at the expense of someone else.

Overall care is disappointing

Nursing staff is great. However, overall care is a disappointment. Dietary dept is very poorly run and patients miss meals if they are in dialysis or at testing. Just because you order food, doesn't mean you are going to get it. Hospital is short staffed and patients suffer the consequences. There is no one to get patients up and mobile, they are restricted to their bed rather than walked or moved to a chair. Avoid this hospital if you can

covid-19 innoculation

Received first dose. Compared to what I've seen elsewhere with relatives or personally trying to get the dose up till now, this hospital administering Pfizer was the most organized and most helpful from what I've seen -- or would have expected. The entire staff that I encountered was beyond simply 'good' at what they do from start to finish.

Never Again

If I could give zero stars i would. I walked in with my 22 month old daughter who was screaming in pain. After being told that the wait time is 2.5hr for children, 45 minuets later I was greeted by a unfriendly none compassionate triage nurse. Who would not give us the time of day to listen to our concerns . We were again told that the wait is 2.5hr and told that she would not be seen by the appropriate doctor, who we were sent by our physician to see. Are experience last nigh was very different from are experience is the past. We will definitely think twice before returning to the pediatric ER.
