Mount Sinai Hospital in New York Under Fire for Alleged Substandard Conditions
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
- A woman takes her mother to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City and witnesses overcrowding, unsanitary conditions, and overwhelmed staff.
- Patients are seen lying in hallways, urine-soaked floors, and trash on the floor.
- The COVID-19 pandemic and nursing strikes have led to staffing shortages and overcrowding in hospitals.
A woman took her mother to Mount Sinai Hospital on Madison Avenue in New York City earlier this month and described what she called “24 hours of hell” in a Daily Mail exclusive published on Sunday. According to her account, the hospital was packed with patients, and the emergency room was chaotic with urine-soaked floors, trash on the ground, and homeless people seeking treatment left ignored.
She also reported that the staff seemed overwhelmed, with some nurses chatting on their cellphones or watching soccer games while patients were left waiting for treatment.
The woman’s mother had initially been suspected of having a stroke, but this was ruled out by a CAT scan within ten minutes. The hospital stay then turned into a nightmare for the cancer patient.
The woman expressed her frustration with the hospital’s deteriorating conditions, stating that she stepped in a puddle of urine from a spilled pan in the hallway and asked the staff when conditions started deteriorating, to which she was told two years ago.
The COVID-19 pandemic has put significant strain on New York City’s healthcare system, with staffing shortages and overcrowding in hospitals. Thousands of nurses quit their jobs due to vaccine mandates and poor working conditions, and over 7,000 went on strike in January for better pay and work conditions.
The woman’s account highlights the challenges faced by the healthcare system, with patients being left in limbo and staff lacking communication with one another.

New York, California, and actually most other states led by democrats especially, fired good nurses and doctors for refusing to let Biden inject a phony vaccine into their body.
So what did they get to replace the good nurses and doctors?
They got a freeloading democrat staff that feels entitled to get paid to do nothing. So now the very few nurses left in these hospitals that are good people, are overworked because they do all the work while others play with their phones.
So all you democrats out there complaining that you aren’t getting the care you think you deserve should finally begin to realize you shouldn’t vote for democrats to run this country.

Mt Sinai NYC was the 1st hospital I worked in after graduating from nursing school in 1978. At that time nurses were paid SIGNIFICANTLY less than teachers- despite working every other weekend, every other holiday, and all 3 shifts. Now we are coming off nearly 3 years of a “pandemic” with horrendous illegal mandates that decimated staffing levels- while teachers had nearly 2 full years OFF with full pay and benefits. I guess that DAY that everyone hung out their window applauding for hospital staff still going to work when NO ONE ELSE was is supposed to be ENOUGH THANKS, now get back to nurses cleaning spilled urine BECAUSE THE UNION CLEANING STAFF DO NOT HAVE TO. Same goes for ALL “waste” spillage- stool, vomit, blood, urine, snot- ALL NOT the cleaner’s responsibility, it’s the NURSES.
Gee, I can’t IMAGINE why NO ONE wants to do nursing work. Doctors treat you like you’re a maid, despite the FACT when they start their careers they ask nurses how to do EVERYTHING from ordering aspirin to drawing blood. Patients and their families abuse you- I’ve had families tell their inpatient members that if they need anything, “just kick the nurse”. I’ve been kicked, punched, choked, and held at knive-point by patients AND families.

My wife has a T-Shirt…it says “I’m a retired Nurse, – Nothing scares me” (She got her license in 1968, and ended up being a CDE, and ACLS certified,) During her last years she constantly complained about the very low quality of the nurses the diploma mills were turning out and the reduction in the difficulty of testing and licensing. Kid, I believe eery thing you said. (BTW, I am a retired Ghetto Cop so i saw the level of care slip lower and lower in the hospitals)
Looks like the mop jockeys got a better union then yours…..and remember this one.
“Rare as an old rusty pick-up truck in the teacher’s parking lot.” – The poor quality of nursing schools mirrors the public school system, which is the only industry (and yes it’s an “industry”) that hasn’t made a saleable product in over 40 years. – The High School Graduate of the mid 60s is better educated, and more able to make a living, then most collage “graduates” of today. – No work ethic at all and everybody gets a trophy,,,,,as long as you say white people are devils and you use the PC pronouns for mutilated males and butchered girls. .
You are right the health care systems sucks, but it doesn’t stop there. – If in 21 months and days there isn’s a real change the entire American way of life is doomed.

Watching soccer on cell phones is no biggie. They may be worthless but they cow towed to the NWO Matrxist elites and got their clot shot. After all isn’t blind obedience and being a useful fool what the NWO Marxists (democrats) that are running NYC want. – Don’t worry about those piss puddles. The commies have gained control and big brother is taking care of the healtcare system. Isn’t that all that counts. – Keep voting for them and it will get even better, If you want to go to the hospital and rot to death, anyway.

Excellent replies! All these leftists who think they are elite putting all this BS in place are creating more reason for rebellion. Our Founding Fathers would be hanging them all and cleaning the country up at gunpoint.

Yes to all of the above comments 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
I got my nursing license in 1969, I’ve never gotten a flu shot in my life! In 2010 the hospital where I was working decided mandatory flu shots were now on the table. I’ve been retired since then. 🙂

Good for you for refusing the communists agenda. What really pisses me off is all the nurses and doctors that put their life on the line in the very beginning of the pandemic, and very much under the impression that they could “die” saving all these “sick people”. They are very brave people!
Then when Biden decided he’d force everyone in the country to take a vaccine that was never, and I mean never, proven to work, the Biden administration and all the tyrant democrat hospitals forced all the doctors and nurses that already naturally went through getting the virus and developing their own body’s immunity to the disease, The tyrant bastards blackmailed all these brave hero nurses and doctors with the threat of losing their jobs if they refused to take the vaccine, even though these tyrants knew a natural immunity was far better protection from the virus than this new unproven useless vaccine that made hospitals and pharmaceutical companies trillions of dollars. So now, this is what I think! FUCK BIDEN, FUCK THE DEMOCRATS, and if it takes a revolution to get out from under this tyrant bullshit, and these fraudulent elections, SO BE IT!

Mount Sinai Westside is no better. I was in there a year ago for Covid and pneumonia, and the care was no better. It was one of the worst experiences of my life. I felt more like a prisoner than a patient. The room wasn’t clean and full of airborne mold, and the restroom wasn’t properly cleaned. The staff were like zombies. They more or less did their job, but most had no empathy. They all wore the same thing; so you couldn’t tell who was a doctor, who was a nurse, and who was an attendant. There wasn’t any real care plan that was discussed with me. They just kept doing blood tests and other tests several times a day and when the nurse brought my medicine, sometimes it wasn’t even intact. I had no idea what it was. They didn’t bother to tell me. The doctor eventually said she was putting me on steroids, but I had no idea what the rest of the medicine was. The doctor did, however, have the good sense to prescribe an antibiotic for my pneumonia, but that was the only positive.
Forget about getting any attention on weekends. There was no doctor available. It also was impossible to get much sleep. Just when you started to dose off, someone would come in to do another test. These tests were necessary, but should not have been that frequent. I was there for 6 days and couldn’t wait to get out of there (even that was a difficult feat). My arms and hands were so bruised from blood tests.
As far as the food was concerned, it was so bad I wouldn’t even feed it to an animal. The cooked food was uneatable. I survived on packaged juice and milk. I never want to end up in any Mt. Sinai hospital in the future. They are the worst.
