When my son got admitted to Gracie Square hospital I read every review I could find. He's discharged for some time now so I'm writing a review to let others like me know about OUR experience. My son was admitted to the 2nd floor. THE GOOD: A lot of the staff were actually not as bad as I expected. Some people stood out like Scott in the medication booth was hilarious. So is bigJohn. They lightened the mood on the unit. Carol, another medication nurse took time to talk to my son about his medication, if you knew my son you would know the amount of patience that requires. Aaron's calm is contagious. Vivian and Meagan are angels. Deborah is... I went to her in tears once and somehow ended up laughing and feeling much better. Theres something about how she looks at you and talks to you- some kind of sorcery. Christine music therapist is sweet and talented, a favorite of a lot of patients. Dr. Spencer is kind and knowledgeable. Social workers actually do their jobs. The food was served hot and tasted better than at other hospitals. Visiting hours are 11:30am- 8pm every day! THE BAD: PHONES!!! Patients answer the phones in the dining room. Sometimes the staff answer the phones rudely. The patients are extremely BORED. The day time is packed but everyone just stares at the walls for most of the evenings. These adults need more than coloring and music. No one should need an order for ginger ale. I mean, come on! My son says he felt shut in at times like the place itself was driving him crazy- defeating the purpose. Doctors should see patients more often. I heard a lot of complaints about patients not being seen for days. I'm not sure how accurate that is but it should be looked into. More food choices, especially for those on special diets. Some privacy during visits would be nice. Some of the patients are very intrusive and it can be uncomfortable. WHAT TO KNOW: Find out what you can bring before bringing anything. No clothing with strings, not too much food because they don't store food, only 2 visitors at a time and all visitors have to be 18 and older. Oh and they check everything you bring up there TWICE. Also, unless you want a well-worded explanation from Deborah, no sharing of outside food with other patients.
My hospital stay was great except I didn't like the night nurses they don't want to nothing for you so they need new night nurses but other then that it's a good hospital.
