My care during the first 2/3s of my stay was excellent. Unfortunately, once I was transferred to a regular room, I was practically forgotten. Everyone was nice in that area, but it wasn't good that they didn't remember to give me the call button, barely came to check on me, never made sure I got up and walked, and didn't even ask me if I needed any pain medication. So different than when I was in their Critical Care Unit!!! There didn't seem to be any reason for it, either, since there were lots of empty beds in the unit (even the other bed in my room was unoccupied). I felt like the forgotten woman.

Great nurses in PACU and ICU. My anesthesiologist was kind and reassuring. Overall a pleasant experience.

The hospital seems to care for wls patients. They even opened up a bariatric center with a nutritionist and wls support groups. The nurses I had seemed to be well informed about the surgery. I even remember one of them telling me they had a friend who had the surgery and was doing well. The x-ray tech I could of done without. He was not at all supportive. Told me to gulp the dye when I could'nt and then got all pissy with me and said, "Well you know the surgery is only a tool if you go back to old habits you will gain the weight back." What the heck did that have to do with swallowing dye. He was just nasty.

First of all, Southside Hospital opened a brand new Bariatric Center about a year ago and they are very attuned to the treatment of obesity. While thery are currently focusing on Gastric Bypass or Banding Surgery, they are also looking at other methods of treating this disease. The hospital itself was recently merged with one of the larger hospital systems on Long Island and is under renovation. In all of my dealings with anyone on staff at the hospital, I have found them to be courteous and extremely helpful.

I was fine in the recovery room, but once transfered to the surgical floor I was pretty much left to fend for myself. The hospital needs to improve on its nursing staff. They are probably overworked, which is no excuse for treating patients as if they are a burden. Without the patients the nurses don't have jobs. And I say this as a nurse and patient.

I don't feel they were sensitive enough or educated enough when it comes to WLS.

The ICU was full and I had to stay in recovery for 24 hours. I had a wonderful caring nurse who worked 3-11 and 11-7. She was sensitive, caring and worked very hard. I agree with another poster that when I went to the surgical floor, I was mostly on my own. Fortunately, I was able to care for myself. It was not an unplesant experience though.
