New York Weill Cornell Medical Center

"Overall I had l an excellent experience. I did have a couple of things that were a bit of an issue. I ended up staying in the recovery room over 24 hours because there were no beds in the hospital for me. (I found out this is not uncommon for this hospital). The upside of this is that I had the MOST wonderful care from the nurses in the recovery room. They were great and very attentive to my needs. The downside is that it was hard to rest and my family couldn't stay there the whole time. My other comment is that the bariatric beds are wonderful! However, the nursing staff needs better training on how to use them. My bed got stuck in a position and they didn't know how to fix it. Maintenance was called; however it ended up that another nurse was able to fix it because she knew how to work the various buttons that control the bed. Overall, my hospital experience was excellent. This was the first time I was in a hospital as a patient and it was probably as painless and I could hope for."
