 TOP important and interesting reviews from patients

I had a recent surgery done at this hospital. From the moment I stepped in the morning of the surgery to the discharge was the best hospital experience I ever had. The staff was so polite at the main entrance and all through the day. My heartfelt THANKS! to all the nurses who helped and assisted at every step and the recovery nurse who had to put up with the questions I was asking under anesthesia grogginess repeatedly and she kept replying patiently. Before the procedure, all my anxiety faded away with their friendliness and smiles. I feel so lucky to have the absolute best doctor who did a wonderful job on my procedure, am so happy and relieved. I don't have any words to thank him besides he has given me a new life and I can not repay in this lifetime. They make an exceptional workforce at the IU Methodist where I had the procedure done. Efficient, courteous and knowledgeable team exceeded all my expectations. Keep up the excellent work guys and a huge THANK YOU! I will highly recommend this hospital to anyone.

IU Health has worked with me these past three months to get my brain working as it should. I'm breathing better than I did before my accident. I'm sleeping better than I can ever remember - and we're still working on more. I have started to have a healthy view of myself mentally and physically. I'm exercising more and have begun to look at food through a therapeutic lens. I'd love to take all the credit, but if it weren't for the doctors, nurses, physical therapists, lab workers, and the rest of the staff, I would most likely still be walking around in a fog, not sleeping, not eating right, and angry. Thanks, IU Health, for giving me the chance to be a better version of myself. Love!

I had fantastic care here when I was in the Emergency Room. All of the ER Doctors, ER Nurses and ER support staff were friendly, polite, and able to help me with my needs at the time. I will always trust IU Methodist for all of my medical needs.

What a joke the Cardiac Medical Critical Care Floor #4 was a complete nightmare (not the staff) the place was nasty dirty! Patient pillows were discarded in the lobby area! The place had tno sanitizer in the dispensers , floor was nasty, trash overflowing ripped and torn furniture and no security to stop kids from doing backflips and going into the actual care center before being escorted back to the lobby! Loud screaming it's bad! I reported this to the front desk on floor one he said he would take care of it and never did!

Had an emergency room visit with my mother. The absolute worse experience ever. I do understand that the nursing staff at patient check-in and triage encounter many different problems and attitudes daily and I do commend them on handling difficult situations it the staff on duty specifically at the ER Triage Front desk are completely desensitized when it comes to compassion. One staff member in particular that was rude and loud to patients; she was an RN. I also observed to IU Methodist employees check-in to ER; we’re taken to the back with 15 minutes of arrival and I watched them leave within 2hrs of their arrival. I wasn’t aware that employees have priority in the ER while the average waiting time tonight is 7.5 hours for everyone else. In addition to lack of priority of care procedures, I watched two fights break out in the waiting room and the security guard took his time coming out of his office to diffuse the situation. This worse example of American healthcare I have ever experienced. I pray my Mom NEVER needs emergency care again. 5-6 Sep 2023

Put this short my dad had lung surgery and one area the hospital he was in the ICU UNIT was GREAT, had amazing caring nurse named Mora..... My dad is now in a recovery room in a different side of the hospital and his nurse and staff is awful..... My dad had lung surgery and used call button call nurse cuz HE HAVING HARD TIME BREATHING and took almost HALF HOUR TO HET HELP... I had to hunt down a random nurse.... They are also not checking on my dad he is stuck to a bed and he has to have help to get to bathroom or anything and he had 2 accidents on himself (bowel movements) all over nurses ignoring the call button or lack of care... Either way this is not right he's being treated horrific right now and he's still going to be in recovery for awhile......

I have been a contract RN for Years, this was one of the most terrible places Ive seen. Unsafe conditions for all. Not much good to say about Indiana anyways, truly a drive through state.

If you want to send gifts or flowers to a loved one, don't trust the hospital website instructions, you'll regret it!

I followed the instructions, from the hospital website, to send a care package (books, blanket, coffee cup, etc., nothing too fancy) to my close friend, getting cancer removal surgery.

Amazon stated it was signed for by a member of reception. Per instructions on the website, it was supposed to be delivered. I asked my friend, he never received the package.

I filed a complaint through the hospital website, never received anything back.

I've never witnessed such petty corruption at a hospital! Save your time and money, don't send anything, unless you want to get it stolen! Extremely sad and pathetic!

The Hospital never asked me for my daughters insurance card, then sent me a bill for 277.80. After me calling and giving them my insurance information for my daughter they sent it in and coded it incorrectly and sent me a bill for 463.00. Now, they won't remove it and give me the cost of 277.80. This is why the world is screwed up. You're better off not having insurance!!!!
