The New York City public hospitals and health centers provide affordable, quality care to all New Yorkers, despite of ability to pay.
Today's Tip is, Whenever U go to the Hospital MAKE SURE U use the Hand Sanitizers EVERY chance U get.
A big chunk of the staff are abusive to patients but there are a few caring individuals that will help you and are understanding. Metroplus is favored at this hospital . Know your rights as a patient
While there are a few nice staff members here, the place as a whole is a nightmare. Avoid this place if you can!
Very petty staff.
Don't be afraid to "politely yet firmly" ask for an administrator or patient advocate after at least 2 hrs w/o being seen after triage.
People and their useless complaints. Every staff is doing a wonderful job taking care of my sister. People need to ease up on expecting a 5star service especially when they give 0 back!!
NEVER come here for ANY reason. Pregnant? Deliver it yourself. Seriously, give yourself an episiotomy. You're better off. Scam! I cannot WAIT to see my bill and fight it tooth and nail.
Trying to find a friend or family member in here is impossible, and no one in the waiting room wears deodorant. I felt like if you were in some serious trouble this would be the last place to go
One of the staff members was really helpful and helped me find what I was looking for.
Today, I was here to announce a new initiative to combat opioid painkiller abuse: http://bit.ly/Vn5GTG
Asked the patient with burn hands to sign the effin form. Ghhhhad!
Get tested for locations
If the 41st Street parking lot is full, head up the block and take your first left.
If you get off your stretcher, it will be stolen.
Squeaky wheel gets the grease.
Waiting to drop off at Pharmacy.. More than an hour also Pick up have to wait forever!!!!
This hospital is horrible!!! Visiting a friend and we had to chase nurses for her food!!
Attending Going Green Class.
this hospital sucks customer service wise..but money wise it will have to do
Awesome hospital, they saved my fathers life more then once. The wait time is mediocre but they help a lot of people without insurance.
A lot of people complain about this hosp, lines, staff, etc. But no one realizes all the benefits that this Public Hosp has for patients...
Instead of complaining about the nurses - all of whom are doing their best in the face of impossible staff shortages - Join with us (NYSNA)
Don't come to this hopital it is the worst ever. The nurses that work here r miserable and nasty.
It's a misconception to believe all hospitals are fast. My grandma waited in the ER for 10 hours after being told she had a broken rib she turns out she was completely fine.
Don't come to the ER here, u have a better chance at dying here than surviving. It took 9 hours of waiting after being hit by car to finally get an xray done!

Tips for a Successful Doctor Visit #1 - Write down all of your medical problems, names & dosages of the medications you're taking. Give it to the nurse when you arrive for your doctor visit.
Waiting for the Doc for update. Too long.
This is not healthcare. This is a joke and people without good insurance are the punchline. Occupy Elmhurst Hospital!

Excellent pediatricians in the hospital!
This is a terrible place, in the MPC clinic you wait on the line for up to 45 minutes. Then they claim they can't see you because your late...go figure....
...You'll most likely die waiting
Worst emergency room! The wait is simply ridiculous
longest wait time ever, these people are rude & unhelpful. I've been here 5 hours and haven't seen a doctor. if you have a problem ; don't bother coming here.
The expeditor at the emergency entrance is lame at her job. Fail.
Would suck to be a mayor here with so many unhappy tips ! Lol
Hope you like to play Angry Birds for hours cuz your gonna be here a while...=P
Holy slowness batman worst er ever! They don't even look busy just don't want to help... Grrr
LONGEST WAIT TIME EVER FOR ANYTHING!!!! FAIL
It's a city hospital...RIP, lol
The two ladies helping at the medicaid are in plain English a couple of bitches... be prepare for their attitude and long waits. The security guard is cool.
Au Bon Pain has some good stuff there, a bit pricey but worth it
