Bayonne Hospital Center: "When I was on the ICU floor for one day during the night my nurse was a bit rude and didn't seem to want to do her job.On the 3rd floor 3R I was very well taken care of all nurses made my feel very comfortable except for one nurse during the night was rude and didn't do her job like she should. Except for the two nurses I had a very good experience! Will recommend friends and family to go to Bayonne Hospital ???? " - Angela

Saint Peter's University Hospital: "I have NO IDEA where St. Peters University Hospital it getting their stats on ER wait times!! Almost every time my mother is transported via ambulance to the waiting room, it is a guarantee that we are in the ER for 9 - 10 hours before being admitted! This is total nonsense! One time they even wanted to send her home on antibiotics for a severe UTI; when they have on record that the only antibiotics she can take are the ones via I.V.

Unfortunately, NO ONE reads anymore!!! NO ONE reads my notes and or the previous hospital notes!"

Overlook Hospital: "Son was experiencing appendicitis symptoms and in pain. Walt time was over 2 hours. Staff didn't seem too concerned when ee asked if he could be seen. Very disappointing service for an emergency room. The wait times are too long and the staff uncaring. So I have to sit and watch my son in pain and wait and wait. " - MC
