There's a hospital in Bolingbrook,so he comes to Edward in Naperville! Go figure! Stupidity at it's best!!!

I would do the same. People talk about the bad care they get at the new hospital and I would not risk my life going there. Matter of fact, many people in Bolingbrook feel this way. Needless to say this does not surprise me.

Hey Jay use common sense! The idiot went to Edward Hospital to avoid any contact with Bolingbrook Police by not going to the hospital in Bolingbrook!

I have been to Adventist several times for emergencies and I have always gotten excellent care from the staff there!
Amber May 15, 2011 at 09:06 PM
How do we know he is a real victim? The altercation he was in, maybe he started to attack someone and they fought back! Because unless he that afraid of the person who stabbed him, why would he not want justice??????

I agree with Amber on the care given at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital. Several of our family members have been treated there for a variety of injuries and ailments with excellent care and results.

I went to Adventist hospital to have my stomach pumped from hamburger toxins. I was in there for days. I weighed 10 pounds less after the procedure.

You are honestly the first person, Jay, that I have heard say something negative about the hospital. Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital has done amazing things for our community and I've had nothing but good experiences there.
Jay Washington May 18, 2011 at 12:17 AM
Well I am glad people have had good luck there. However, numbers do not lie. Look at their death rate statistics compared to other illinois hospitals. Proof is in the pudding, not my personal opinion. Matter of fact I have spoken with three people misdiagnosed there that all almost died due to their misdiagnosis.

Jay, can you please site where you get you data and what it's based on. If the people you've spoken too are anything like you, they probably made up their symptoms so they could just say it was a misdiagnosis.
