emergency room is horrible. spent 3 hours in there and all they did was clean the cut on my husbands head. the room cleared out and refilled and they still didn't come and put the staples in my husbands head and started taking care of the new people instead of just getting us out of there. so we walked out.

they are unprofessional, the nurses are not cooperative. They do not care if you or your child is sick!! I would never recommend them to anyone!
My mother has been hospitalized at JFK twice in less than a month. Both times her care left much to be desired. Contact numbers for family not documented on her chart. There was a lack of communication with family regarding her discharge arrangement. Social worker and discharge planner were rude. On second admission staff remained rude. Medications were not given as ordered with staff being unaware until family caught the omission. Very poor accountability on multiple levels- unit staff, social workers, management. The focus was how soon can she be discharged. A disgrace to healthcare in the hospital setting. FYI, I am a hospital experienced RN saying this!
DO NOT COME HERE if you want a relaxing birth experience and recovery. The nurse there while I was getting my epidural was so cold and I actually cried and I'm not a crier. Moments after delivering my child I started to hemorrhage and no nurses were to be found. They were outside in the halls laughing and I could hear them from my room. My doctor had to scream "can I get some help here!" In order for them to pay attention to their job. Of all the nurses that came in an out during recovery, only one took really good care of me. Constantly checked my scars to see how they were and actually held my hand when I was in pain while getting examined. I tried to switch to St. Peter's hospital before giving birth because of all the bad reviews but no doctor would see me so late in the pregnancy. I'm definitely not going there for any other treatment.
The staff in the Brain Trauma Unit are great. They did a wonderful job on my son. However, don't expect to get in touch with Dr. Greenwald who runs the BTU. After a half dozen call to his office with no returns nor any replies to our E-mails I would rate him a zero for availability. Unless you key-hole him in the corridor good luck getting any kind of information from his office. We were suppose to make an appointment for a follow-up , guess what NO REPLY to out phone calls. If you are in need of Rehab I would look elsewhere.JFK should find another Dr. to run the Brain Trauma Unit!
The emergency room needs more help and more caring personnel. They are far to slow when it comes to caring for incoming patients. I am talking about seriously ill people, not someone who walks right into the ER because they cut their finger on a piece of paper.
