    St Joseph Medical Center: "Aseptic technique was horrendous. Nurses dropping medication vials on the floor, not wiping it off afterwards and not changing gloves before touching i.v. line. Not scribbing the i.v. port prior to delivering meds, forgetting to hook up the i.v. line and antibiotic soaking my sleeve instead. No soap in the room for duration of stay (dispenser was broken). Waiting for help that never came after fouling myself because I was vomiting so hard because my anti-nausea meds were consistently late (fortunately, after 40 minutes a family member came and helped me clean up). Commode placed nearby but no toilet paper within reach, no gloves to use close by (needed because of lack of soap in the room), staff taking about patients at nurses station which was audible to other patients. I will NEVER go there again. Unsafe, understaffed and lack of recognition of basic aseptic technique. This hospital WILL kill people with their lack of emphasis on simple practices that keep patients safe. " - Karen

    Providence Holy Family Hospital: "This was the worst hospital experience in my whole life!! I went there in so much pain I was balling my eyes out! I waited for 7 hrs! Crying the whole time. I had an IV started after 4hrs of waiting. So I assumed I would be seen soon after. It was another 3 hrs. No one ever came to check if I was alright! Or why I was crying. I got there at 5 in the evening and got a bed finally at almost 1 in the morning. I had to be dropped off by a family member because I was actually here on vacation with my 4yr old granddaughter. So I was stuck there waiting. When I did get back to a bed they did blood work and finally got something to help with the pain and then I had a CT scan. Then they gave me something that didn't help with the pain and when I told them it was getting bad still I got something else that didn't help. They then gave me a prescription of what didn't help and said that I was being discharged. I was still crying when I left there! " - Michelle

    : "St. Michaels Medical Center in Silverdale is the absolute worst. I've waited more than 15 hours on a few occasions. If you go there at 5 p.m. they'll call you into a room at 11 p.m. to take your blood pressure. Then you return to waiting. That way they charge you for two days of admission instead of one. They never have a bed available and the hospital has no heat. " - James

    Overlake Hospital Medical Center: "This is taking SOOO long! We are waiting in a hallway in er, in a chair, and can hear everyone else’s medical information- personal stuff we don’t want to hear. This is something I expected in NYC, not Bellevue." - Cat
