Aunque nunca esperamos estar en un hospital , de tener que estar en uno desearía que fuera en uno como este. Los cuartos para los pacientes parecen un hotel. Muy limpios y cómodos. En la parte baja encontrarás buenas opciones de comida y café para los que se tienen que desvelar o pasar varios días ahí. Excelente el trato de los especialistas.
Imelda Gonzalez, July 2019
No me considero una mujer que busca o hace problemas...tampoco soy especialista en el área de salud .... sin embargo , no necesito ser especialista para denunciar la contaminación debido a la falta de limpieza en los pasillos del piso 3 del hospital San José ( menciono el piso 3 pues no me di a la tarea de revisar los demás pisos) .
Hace seis meses estuve en el mismo piso y ahora que regreso están exactamente las mismas evidencias de suciedad.
Ya de por sí resulta inverosímil que en una hospital utilicen alfombra ; pues para todos es conocido la cantidad de virus que resguarda una alfombra....
Ayer que llegué a levantar la queja al departamento de hospitalidad ... lo hice con una pregunta ... : “ dígame qué antibiótico van administrarle a mi esposo para que pueda combatir la cantidad de bacterias que están alojadas en los pasillos del piso 3 ?”
Yo me pregunto : dónde est la supervisión ? Dónde está el seguimiento de las normas elementales de salubridad que deben cumplir instituciones de Salud Público o Privado ? ( en este caso estamos hablando de una institución de salud privada de mucho renombre en nuestra ciudad Hospital San José que además para dar más confiabilidad tiene el aval del TEC de Monterrey ) .
Fui en dos ocasiones a levantar la queja ... en la primera ocasión la señorita Fátima se concretó a darme dos hojas con un sin fin de renglones para que levantara mi queja ... y poder avisarle al departamento o supervisor de limpieza para que lo
que lo solucione... 😩😩😩😩🙈🙈🙈 por Dios !!!! Ese problema , al menos esas “evidencias” tiene al menos seis meses de que no le meten mano !!!!
La primer instrucción de estas hojas llenas de línea dicen:
“Deberá proporcionar la fecha en que ocurrieron los hechos, en que área del establecimiento ocurrió y una narración clara de lo acontecido “ ... Por Dios sólo basta con bajar la mirada y OBSERVAR ... !!!!! Continúa el cuestionario ...Fecha ??? No quiero no imaginarlo....😞😞😞
La siguiente pregunta :
“ Cómo podemos mejorar su experiencia ? 😢😂🙈 no sé si reír o llorar ... creo que hasta un niño de primaria puede dar estas sugerencias BÁSICAS ...
Cabe aclarar la segunda vez que fui al mismo departamento me atendió el joven Rodrigo Báez un joven que escuchó muy atento , ofreció cambiarnos de piso, en menos de media hora andaban dos personas “tratando” de ocultar las evidencias y estábamos en otro piso “ sin alfombra “....
Ya más tarde fui a darle las gracias a este joven por haber actuado ; sin embargo le decía que esta queja no solo fue por mi esposo ...sino por todos los pacientes que están internados en estas condiciones y con estos riegos inminentes .
Antes de terminar quiero aclarar que la atención y profesionalismo del personal es muy bueno y entiendo perfectamente que en manos de ellos ( médicos y enfermeras ) no está resolver este serio problema en las instalaciones de la institución .
Esperando que este serio problema se resuelva a la brevedad por el bien de tanto paciente que acude con mucho sacrificio económico a este hospital esperando encontrar mejores condiciones que en hospitales públicos y con el solo objetivo de recobrar su salud .
( este espacio no me permitió copiar fotos.. pero tengo evidencias fotográficas ...aunque seguramente después que que Rodrigo externó mis comentarios algunas personas dirigieron la mirada al piso)

Best hospital in the world!!
Vibhu Kapoor, July 2018
Best hospital i have ever visited. I am an expat on a short term assignment in Monterrey. I faced some emergency health issues and went to urgent care at this hospital. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Dr. in urgent care "Dr Rocio Aridna" was great and kind. Since i could not speak Spanish, she took me around and got all tests done. She truly went over and beyond her role to help me out.
