They have the best nurses in the world! I was treated with so much compassion and care. They went out of their way to make sure I was doing well and was comfortable. Triple A+ to Princeton, their doctors, nurses and everyone I came in contact with.
This place was TERRIBLE! Had a family member admitted there. Her primary dr (is part of this hospital) did not know what dosage of medications he had prescribed for her (and this is a medication that has to be monitored closely) so we figured he didn't even check her chart before making his rounds. Then the entire section of the floor we were one somehow got left off the food list so NO ONE on that side got breakfast or lunch (we had to go buy a lunch and bring it in for her to eat). She had to have an endoscope and the GI dr said he was going to prescribe meds. He didn't. We were trying to find out when she could go home only to have the nurse (who by the way was the ONLY good thing we found here) discover that neither Primary or GI doctor seemed to know who is supposed to prescribe her medication or who was supposed to discharge her. So after several more hours we FINALLY got the ok for her to go home. We go to the pharmacy to get her prescription and the primary who finally phoned in her meds did NOT prescribed the medication in the dosing the GI dr told us she would need to do. I will NEVER go to this hospital ever again. I can understand mistakes happening but all of this took place in less than 2 days. Completely UNACCEPTABLE!!
