TOP important and interesting reviews from patients

ER desk staff was so nice despite some obnoxious clientele. The ER nurses took good care of my brother after being airlifted from a bad accident. ICU is caring for him well now. It's not a beautiful place, but its clear they know what they're doing there, and that's comforting.

The nurses and doctors at this hospital care about their patients and do all they can to find solutions to the patients medical issues. I personally have been sick most of my life. I got admitted to Harborview after a visit with my Kidney team. I was taken directly to the ER where they treated me with kindness and compassion (which I do not get at all from my home hospital). I was admitted and the inpatient team of doctors and nurses are absolutely amazing. I would recommend this hospital to anyone who wants to be treated like they matter.

My Daughter admitted in February for a really bad infection. It was life threatening and if not for Harborview amazing Doctors and nurses in the ICU Ashe would not be here today. A big shout out to a nurse in ICU James ( can’t remember his last name) you’re her guardian angel thank you so much for your amazing work

Reviews about Harborview Medical Center | Seattle Hospital

I recently had to visit Harborview and I was extremely disappointed with the hospital's hygiene practices. The hospital room I was in was dirty and unclean, with visible dust on the surfaces and stains on the linens, stains on the walls, etc.

As a patient, I felt extremely uncomfortable and worried about the risk of infection. It is unacceptable for a hospital to have such poor hygiene practices, especially during a pandemic when cleanliness and sanitation are more important than ever.

I hope that Sommer Kleweno, their "ceo", takes immediate action to improve her hospitals hygiene practices and ensure that patients are not put at risk. I would not recommend this hospital to anyone until significant improvements are made.

I was left out in the hallway like trash until 3 am when they had beds available they just refused to give me one, the floor in the hallway was covered in blood, it took them 9 hours to get a CT scan done and the people were so rude to the homeless that came in there it was absolutely a horrible experience and I’d rather die than go back

They do their all and provided the most effective care for the state I was in both mentally and physically. I hope to never be back but I'm glad the staff and treatment I received was what I got. I'm thankful for the entire staff

I am very thankful for how this hospital took care of my son especially to the face specialist that perform surgery on my son’s lips. The specialist took the time to meticulously re-examine my son and had to re-do what my local hospital did wrong, they have used permanent stitches which had to be removed.
Overall i am very thankful with all the staffs, nurses, doctors and specialists that work at this hospital for all what you did for my son Thank You
