My mother received wonderful care here. The nurses are very caring and helpful. The doctor was very willing to hear my concerns and answer any questions. The other staff, including the caseworker were always professional and compassionate. I wasn't able to be there as much as I would have liked and was grateful for the consistent quality of care. (Building is in need of serious rehab--but didn't change the care she got.)

My sister was there for some after surgery care. She had a private room and we also were able to stay over night. The staff were nice and knew how to care for her.

So my brother was running a temp of 105 to 107the past 36 hrs and he didn't even want o go to the hospital. We kept giving him Tylenol and Motrin and it wasn't working. Now I'm an ICU nurse and I've worked in community hospitals but currently work at Rush. I love community hospitals but this one really angered me. Not only was the receptionist at the urgent care unwelcoming but she definitely was not helpful. My brother has BCBS HMO and yes a lot of places don't take it but she didn't even bother asking if it was PPO. She literally was like "No we can't see him bc his insurance is only good at UIC." I was like well we'll pay out of pocket it doesn't matter. To which she said "We can't see him bc I would still need to put in his insurance." Does that make sense to anyone?!! It's an urgent care and it shouldn't matter bc i also said I would pay out of pocket!!! I mean it was bad enough having to convince him to go and this was mind you the second place we've gone where they refused us. The first place was lawndale Christian health center. Now for a country who is in serious debt with heath care costs and that's why they even created urgent care and immediate care clinics was to keep people out of the ERs and this is what happens?!!! Is it me or do some urgent care and immediate care clinics have problems caring for the people in their community if they HAVE insurance. It looks like people have to be in Medicaid or Medicare to be seen in their community. And yet those who pay for their insurance are getting screwed over. I'm never recommending anyone to go to Norwegian. As a health care professional and constituentim extremely dissatisfied with their constumer service and their policies.

Terrible place and very bad emergency room. Very Unprofessional MALE NURSES work in this emergency room. Unfortunately. And the doctors in this ER are very bad too. I had a very sharp pain in my ear. I wasn't sure if it was my ear or my head. The pain was very strong so I went to ER. The doctor in ER looked at my ear and said that I have a "Nasty" ear infection. "Nasty ear infection" were his exact words. Wow! Good way to talk to your patients Doc.! He prescribed me pills. However, these pills did NOT help me at all. I have stomach problem. After taking these pills, I start having annoying pain in my stomach and I end up throwing up. However, my ear is still in pain. The very next morning the half of my face was all in pain. I went to my regular Ear doctor. My doctor told me that I should NOT take these pills they gave me in ER. My ear doctor said that the ER doctor misdiagnosed me. I did NOT have an ear infection. Not only they misdiagnosed me, but they gave me the wrong medication that heart my stomach! I am glad I went to my regular doctor and asked for a second opinion. All these doctors who work in ER in Weiss Memorial Hospital can NOT be trusted. By giving the wrong diagnoses, you put your patient at risk! In some cases, it can even cause death ! Weiss Memorial Hospital is a Very BAD hospital ! The ER doctors are Unprofessional. These bad doctors can NOT work with patients!Avoid this bad hospital if you can. These doctors and nurses who work in emergency room can NOT be trusted. They prescribe the wrong medication putting your life at risk. Going to ER in Weiss Memorial Hospital was a waist of time. They did NOT help me! Not at all. The bad doctor from ER prescribed me the wrong medication that did NOT help me with my ear pain.Moreover, these pills heart my stomach very badly. As a patient, I would NOT recommend Weiss Memorial Hospital to everyone. A friendly advise here. Stay away from this bad place if you still wanna live. Be well and make a smart choices in your life!

Let me begin by saying this review is in regard to the specific ER Staff , for this visit, on this date (3/7/17). I can not speak on anything other than this as this is as far as I've gotten at this time. My Mom was transported to this facility by ambulance around 9pm. Upon her arrival she was immediately greeted and triaged by Louis and Nancy. Both spoke to the patient respectfuly and in very comforting tones which calmed my mother immensely while they performed their duties. She was then visited by 4th yr med student Rojay, a very polite, eager young man who displayed compassion, empathy, humor and a yearning to learn .Physcian Assistant Matthew E. spoke with me before, during, and after all procedures performed, speaking in medical terms followed by layman's terms to ensure I completely understood everything that transpired. Mike did the repeated EKG test. He also was very professional yet personable, as well as the two young ladies doing Xray that night/morning. Our nurse, Rinku (I know it's spelled wrong, sorry), was the absolute best, checking on Mom almost every 15 minutes or so. It is now 5:53 am , Mom is sleeping, I'm napping on and off as we wait for a bed and transport upstairs. 9am and Anthony is here to transport. This young man is so funny and encouraging, putting everyone at ease. We arrived safely and relaxed to room 545 (now the staff for this area is a whole different story, and I'm going to leave it alone... for now). Overall this was the best ER experience we've had, and believe me there has been many, at various hospitals. So I close this review thanking all involved in caring for Leonia Martin this night, you are all PRICELESS.

This clinics' staff seems to be set in the wrong neighborhood. They are loud and unprofessional. On the up-side the wait is never too long and the bathrooms are always well kept. The nurses seem to be knowledgable and friendly. But overall this staff belongs in a back of the yards neighborhood.

You guys were extremely helpful with the choices we before my brother left. We had a clear understanding of medication and insurance which we really wasn't that sure about. Care was good but having a clear understanding of what the future hold was great.

Male nurses who work in ER in Weiss Memorial Hospital in Chicago Illinois are very rude, ignorant and unprofessional. I was a patient in the Weiss Memorial Hospital.They took me to emergency room. All this was happening during the night (late midnight). These male nurses were "working" their night shift.These gay men-nurses were standing right next to my room. I could hear them talk with each other.These gay-nurses were talking about bars,clubs,"hot boys", and everything ales, but NOT their work. I was laying in my room all night long, feeling cold and thirsty, but No one came to check up on me. No one! Why? Maybe it is because the gay men nurses were too busy chatting and laughing with each other. This is very bad! Come on people?This is an Emergency Room! You can't do this in here! Take your problems outside. Don't bring it to your workplace. These gay nurses were bad and unprofessional. Something has to be done about this ASAP!
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
