    Very happy with amazing staff for this LBI guest and his family. My child woke up with Croup at 1 am, we went to the ER and we're dealt with immediately. The Dr's and Nurses were so kind and we were quickly on our way home and recovering. Even got lollipops and stickers on our way out. Thank you!

    I am only giving a bad review to my ER experience! I went in for dehydration after stomach virus. I got there around noon and there was in 3 people in waiting room. I didn't get brought back for a little over 2 hours. After I was out in ER room I was asked for urine sample that sat in counter for another 2 hours I saw no one till another nurse came in around 4:00 to take blood and was told it would be about a half hour till we got results. The Dr stopped in for maybe 1 min to ask questions and said he would call my surgeon (I had surgery there 5/18) and let me know after he got all my results. Didn't see anyone again for about an hour when they came in to give me an IV &chest x-ray. I asked if I was dehydrated & being admitted and no one seemed to be able to answer my questions!! The litte bag of fluids they out me in was gone in about 30 min. Sat there again till around 7:30 when I saw the Dr again for approx 2 min and he told me that the surgeon wanted me to be admitted by was my choice to stay. Again I asked am I dehydrated? Still no direct answer. My sister was there with me by this point & she was getting really upset that no one was answering me, if I was dehydrated my bag was empty for hours & we sat there with no one even checking in for hours at a time. So I know it wasn't just me not feeling well and getting upset. To top it all off, the nurse finally came back in to tell me they had a bed ready & the Dr ordered potassium for me to take (the surgery I had was stomach surgery and they were fully aware I was on soft foods & couldn't take pills) I asked if I was going upstairs shouldn't they just put it thru IV and was told I needed to take them. When I finally got upsatirs the nurses were in shock that they tried to make me take the pills, especially since my surgeon had ordered a bag for IV!!!!!!! Awful experience especially when you are feeling awful. The nurses after being admitted and when I stayed after my surgery were awesome!! They get 5 stars!!! They actually communicated with each other and me, listened to me & were very attentive. And by the way I was severely dehydrated and was in for 3 days.

    I had to have my first colonoscopy and had my consult with Dr. Shah. He was very thorough and interested in listening to my symptoms so he suggest blood work and also an endoscopy. I had the colonoscopy and an endoscopy at Southern Ocean Medical Center with Dr. Shah this past Wednesday. I was concerned about the prep and he was very reassuring and calm. The procedure went off without a hitch and we found out some important things. It's nice when someone actually listens to you!

    Asking for public ratings/opinions for private medical professional service should not be allowed but discouraged by medical professionals & institutions. SOCH has very poor privacy considerations for patients There isn't any privacy, everything , including your name & symptoms are shouted across rooms/labs from person to person, crazy unprofessional behavior, go anywhere outside of Ocean County for care.

    I have found the doctor on the forth floor unkind,egotistical , talks down to patients family. Doesn't hear nor care for the wishes of the patient or the family . To repeat what had said to us he is the boss of the floor so what hsay goes . In fact refused to comply with a reverse isolation. Telling us its not hospital policy. So if you have an person that has no white blood count the staff doesn't have to protect the patient Hi back again . Well brought an updated list of meds for mom again this trip but staff didn't bother updating I guess , so went by what was in computer last time .hmmmm thank god my sister and i are afraid to leave so we caught what could have been a devastating mistake . And still precautions for isolation is not consistent. Signs up on wall assist with meals .they drop off tray and leave .

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
