My mom ended up in this hospital due to pulmonary distress - lungs were filling up with liquid for the second time in one month. After the lung liquid dried up the hospital tried to discharge her with the blood sugar of ~ 400. (Steroids have a side effect of elevating blood sugar). On top of everything else, nobody was interested in the cause - why the lungs are filling up. All my inquiries were unanswered. One of the doctors sincerely suggested not to come here again, while the discharging doctor unashamedly mentioned that Medicaid doesn't pay that well for such patients. I felt like we were in a Russian or Cuban hospital ... so sad. If you can persuade your ambulance driver to go elsewhere, you will be better off.

Despite good doctors and very good staff, this hospital still earned only a "D" on Leapfrog in 2017 after five years supposed improvements. Maybe less time on aesthetics and PR and more focus on quality of care is in order. Until you get this right, nothing else matters. This community deserves better and its not happening with the current administration. Hopefully the next administration will be more capable.

This hospital is a dangerous place to go if you have an emergency. Try to avoid this place by all means possible. If you have a real emergency I would advise staying away from this place. You may never walk out of this place. Brookdale Hospital reminds me of Gotham hospital from all the Batman movies. I had to take my employee here for huge cut on his leg, needed about 20 stitches. The Doctors, nurses, and FDNY were more worried about how they can refer an attorney to sue. Horrible caring of a patient. They never gave him antibiotics and now its infected. If I ever get injured in Brooklyn I would rather drive to Long Island to a better hospital so I can survive.

During the summer an ambulance was called because i had extreme chest pain. In the ambulance the paramedic noticed my blood pressure was crazy high. Since im only 19, she thought there was a mistake and tried again, but it came out high again. Inside they checked a third time with a different machine, and it still said my bp was high. So where did they take the teenager with high blood pressure and chest pain? To the waiting room with the non emergency people. While in the emergency room, i could also hear a man screaming that it was his 3rd day there and he still didnt have a bed. Horrible place.

I went there in May...by ambulance...I am new to the area and unfamiliar with the hospitals...they did nothing... my pressure was high...the paramedics took my pressure...and the doctor did nothing...my legs were badly swollen...and I was filled with fluid...my left foot was three times the size of the right...the doctor looked...never even touched me..I was clean...I had just taken a shower...my hair was still wet...she acted like I had the plague....but proceeded to pronounce me perfectly fine....I couldn't walk...I was in pain...and was having trouble breathing...most likely from a panic attack..I hope...and she said I as fine.. The next day I went to a hospital in Queens...and the took care of me...guess what...I wasn't fine....I will NEVER go there again....I don't even know if the woman I was dealing with was even a doctor...she NEVER said...and no name tag...the WORST hospital ever...
