This is my first time ever rating anything on line, and I am not enjoying the experience. I have a dear friend of mine who had open heart surgery, this took place at Maimonides Medical Center/Maimonides Hospital, I honestly think the doctors saved her life. However the heart breaking thing was after the surgery, when the nurses and other technicians had to do their jobs. Some of the nurses are like heaven sent, caring, kind and loving, unfortunately this was the minority. Most of these people have no compassion for a persons fear, nor any understanding that it takes more than medical care to get a patient well. They are nasty, uncaring, and at times seems spiteful. They show no concern, or have no understanding of their patients fear, or mental frailty. They rule their little domain like some small minded dictators. I urge you if you have love ones in this hospital, try to stay with them over night, that's when these vampires come out, when their is no family members or love ones their to defend the defenseless. The hospital needs to get out the staff who are only on the job for a pay check. For a heart hospital, it's staff show very little heart.
Pros: The medical care is excellent
Cons: lack of compassion
