This used to be the best hospital in Washington. What has happened? I went to the emergency room there at around 7 pm and did not get out until 3:30 in the morning. The first doctor I saw, he hadn't examined me but he told "There's nothing wrong with your kidney". Four hours later around one am in the morning, another doctor finally looked at me, gave me a body scan and found that I did have a kidney stone. That second doctor, I have to give him credit. He found out what was wrong and gave me the right medicine for it. But Washington Hospital Center has really come down from what it used to be when it first opened.

I am currently in the process of being treated at the Washington Hospital Center for thyroid cancer. Along the way, they have continued to screw up getting the proper insurance authorization. I have had to step in along the way to ensure I was being charged 'in-network'. Before my surgery, I was told to call Admissions to ensure all pre-surgery tests where completed and results received. Also I was to make sure the surgery was authorized by my insurance company. I did this and I was told all was good and they had the authorizations. As I have started to receive my bills, I noticed the amount was too high. I called my insurance company and said WHC entered my claim as out-of-network. Now I am supposed to be on the hook for the money. I like my Doctors, but the support staff is incompetent. It is one thing to put up with the rudeness I experience every time I have a question or issue. But to screw-up such a basic administrative function of doing business concerns me. It is bad enough to go through Cancer, but to deal with all this administrative headaches (there have been many more than what I have written here) that should just be taken care of by the hospital is very draining, especially a hospital that claims to have such a great reputation. There are many good hospitals in the DC area. At this point I would not recomend WHC. I am just starting the process of sorting this out. I will keep updating.

The nursing care was awful and I am a nurse. They never came into my mother's room and if they did it was to say I'll be right back (never came back). No communication between the nurses, doctors, and patient. Never received the diet ordered!!!! NPs and dotors just seemed very nonchalent. Forgot to put my mothers oxygen back on!!!! Finger tips were blue. If I could transfer her out I would.
