Our Lady Of Lourdes Medical Center: "My mother was admitted here with pneumonia. THough out her hospital stay she kept telling me how mean and horrible the staff were being to her. (I'm her daughter) I even witnessed it myself. They told me she was doing better and was going to be released early.. although mom was telling me she could hardly breathe but no one was doing anything.
Unfortunatelymy mother passed away 2 days later. WORST HOSPITAL EVER!!
I even went here numerous times (coming from Collingswood) to the emergency room and was treated horribly. Don't risk your life here. "
