My dear grandfather is a 85 years old, holocaust survivor! On June 6 he broke his hip and we had no way to get him to a hospital in NY city, Which is why we took him to Coney Island Hospital. What a mistake! The operation went well, but what happened later became a nightmare and i still haven't woken from it! Don't get me wrong, there are some great people on the staff ,but there are a lot of very rotten ones ! They look at the screen of the computer,and the people to them are just a number. On July 4th ,my grandfather was in bed with a dirty diaper full of bowels and urine for four hours until we got there and called the administrator!I We could not stop crying ,the last time my grandfather was in situation like this was in concentration camp! but this is only the start! My Mother is a 62 year woman,and on the 28 of june she was assaulted by hospital police for talking outside of the main entrance to me about my grandfathers care. He did not like her kind (Russian) and made it very clear The Gorilla of a man, 6 foot 4, 350 lb, told her to stop talking and because she didn't, he threw her against the wall and down and smilled about it Then they tried to cover it up,but its all on video and criminal charges were filled with real police! Please people think twice,before you leave your loved ones in this hell hole!!
1) My grandfather had an order in the computer to be sat up in a chair so he doesn't get bed sores and deteriorate. It took them 8 days to finally sit him because each department was blaming the other. Be advised, at coney island hospital, you need to be the biggest advocate of your loved one, i just feel sorry for those who have no one to fight for them!
2) Do not let the religious woman on the 7th floor step down unit of the new building next to your family, I do not want to give names but she is horrible and someone who does nothing while trying to look busy all the time all the while blaming others for care not being given.
