Do not go to the ER. I laid in severe pain for the better part of 9 hours and find that highly negligent. Added to the fact that my cardiologist called ahead to let them know I was on my way in and he was doing a cath on me that afternoon or evening. So, they should have been prepared for me. Either they don't care or they are not following national guidelines from every medical association that states that the patient should be alleviated from pain as a primary objective. Either the hospital needs to change their guidelines or the doctors need to re-evaluate their treating methods. I filed a complaint with the hospital. Neither the Chief Medical Officer nor my own cardiologist has reached out to me to discuss this after sending them a letter to them personally. Instead I received a letter from my cardiologist stating that he would no longer be my treating physician. I guess they just don't care at East Jefferson General Hospital.

We tried to call the bill serice more than 30times in few monthes. The phone always on hold or said "call you back later". BUT nobody answered or called us back at all! I don't understand why nobody pay attension on calls! I don't think you should have phones if you have never answered your phone!

I had to have a procedure recently...from admit to discharge...EVERYONE is living up to the billboards! All the nurses and doctors were very professional but also very caring. Reminded me of the hospital of my small hometown...seemed like everyone knew you and was there just to make sure you were comfortable and wanted to help you get well!!! A great experience!

This has to be the worst hospital in metairie, when you get there you wait forever to get in the back and once you do you will have to wait for some doctor to come in and tell you that they can't find a problem with you to go home rest and take fluids, just to have to go somewhere to find out the real problem, this is a sad excuse of a hospital.

EJ is excellent to young patients, they've been wonderful with me in the past, but to the elderly they are downright cruel!!! Both my grandmother AND grandfather have had nothing but poor quality of care, at best, from the nurses there. This has been going on for the past 4 1/2 years as we have been dealing with broken hips, multiple strokes, and various other reasons. The fact that it took a nurse 4 hours to come bring my grandfather to the bathroom or 1 1/2 hours where he sat in a dirty diaper is outrageous, disgusting and abusive. Oh and when the nurse said she was "too busy" to help his sitter get him to the bathroom again his sitter said "ma'am, he's been sitting here dirty for a while now. How would you like it if you were in his situation?" the nurse has the disgusting response "well I don't need help to get to the bathroom"...!!!!!!!!!!... ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!???? Even if you have that cold of a heart to even think that, you DON'T SAY IT OUT LOUD!!!! Needless to say, karma is a b*tch and that low life will certainly get what’s coming to her! My grandfather has bed sores appearing on his back now and it's just getting plain abusive at this point. We can't say anything for fear of retaliation as that's been done to us in the past. These people who call themselves health care professionals are anything but. If you don't wish to take CARE of people don't be in the field! I understand it pays the bills but so does a lot of other jobs where you don't have to interact with other humans...because at this point they shouldn't. Again, for younger people I can't say enough good things about them!

Did you know Coca-Cola — along with PepsiCo, Nestle and others — donated huge sums of money to GEBN to confuse and distract the public from the dangers of their popular food items? #cocacola   #pepsico   #nestle   #healthdangers   #GEBN  
No matter which way you slice it, soda is bad for you. From the loads and loads of research to back the unhealthy claims of soft drinks to the human trial display in the film “Super Size Me,” all the information we have available to us tells us to step away from the diet coke and reach for just about … Read More
