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.

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!

I brought my wife to the ER with a medical emergency, and we were treated in such a negligent and uncaring manner that can still neither make heads nor tails of the event. Without knowing what was wrong with her, (besides the violent vomiting) and neither speaking to, or touching her in any way, we were pushed aside and out into the hall. She was so sick that we were being asked by every passerby in the hall if they could get help for us. I finally ended up calling 911 just to have someone look at her, asses her, treat her, anything.... Nothing came of that either thanks to East Jefferson Fire Rescue Paramedics. It was our misfortune to already have been within the walls of this "hospital". When someone finally did come for us, it was to tell me that they had called the police because of the location of my vehicle. Way to go "medical professionals"! Such a sad and disheartening experience in a place that i have lived for 15 years.

Absolutely the most professional, clean and excellent hospital I have ever been treated in. I had breast cancer surgery and I couldn't have had a better experience.

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!
