I was released from ER after having heart attack and was told I am fine. It was later confirmed by Syracuse some time later that I did indeed have a heart attack.

rome does that often they send you home to die so another death will not be chalked up in the hospital log books

They MUST be referring to things like the number of "slip & falls" , traffic accidents in the parking lot or food poisonings in the cafeteria. Rome Hospital would do well in those categories. Medically speaking it's sad to say Rome Hosp. is only as good as the Docs who practice there. My experience when it comes to any possibility of our resident specialists providing "in patient" diagnostics, surgery, or procedures has moved me and my family to University Hospital, Syracuse. Very inconvenient but worth it.

my mother who lives in Rome to never to go that hospital! Even if they did score high on patient safety - the administration there ever since Mrs. Burns left is awful - all about the bottom line! At least Mrs. Burns had her heart and soul in that hospital never allowing it to go down. Now, it is becoming a mill, just like all the other get um in and get um out medical services. The staff at Rome Hospital are awful too! My girlfriend always gets treated poorly when she goes there! I don't care what Consumer Reports says, I've asked my mother to go to Crouse -for anything. She refuses. Her choice but take me to Rome Hospital are not words to live by! I would never go to that hospital!

Well, I have worked at RMH for years. The current CEO often lies to the level that nobody could trust him. He and his back stabber admin have created a toxic environment there.

Yes, RMH does not have as many falls/injuries as other hospitals in upstate NY. However, RMH is not Cleveland Clinic and Massachusetts General either. Most of the physicians who are employed by RMH can't practice elsewhere.

Rome is being compared to Cleveland Clinic because it aligned to one rating. Are you kidding? These people need a wake up call and stop fooling themselves.

When my Grandson was only 14 months old, his Peditrician put him in Rome Hospital for an "ear infection" where they overdosed him on Antibiotics for 3 days resulting in liver damage. Luckly, an ER Doctor at St. Lukes recognized these symptoms a week later (be was jundiced)and rushed him and his Mom to Upstate Hosp. via Ambulance and a week later down to Pittsburgh Children's Hospital where they had to operate to open up his bile ducts that had closed (he was 3 days away from death).
today he is 3 years old, still with liver problems and on a liver transplant list!!!
Rome Hospital is where you go to die!
Wow. Scary. This gives me more reason to keep going to St. Elizabeth.
