Woth an exception to this hospital's ER; which operates perfectly, the day to day operation of Skokie hospital is one of the worst run hospitals I have ever encountered! I am not surprised that a patient was robbed here. Again, it's the daily operation of the hospital that puts patients in harms way and, when confronting hospital officials regarding mistakes and misdeeds, the upper administration at this hospital is more concerned about protecting their staff than the patient! The patch should speak with some of the patients who became victims of this hospital! Skokie Hospital taints the entire image of NorthShore HealthCare Facilities!

They do a great job catching potheads but rarely get the thieves. That's America for ya.

cops always catch the "easy" ones. If the police put the same amount of time and money they spent investigating, arresting, and prosecuting potheads toward the real criminals, I would still be living in Skokie. I lived there almost my whole life but grew tired of getting my car broken into and hearing about my friends' cars being broken into or stolen, house being robbed, etc. I now live in another suburb where they don't put up with this Section 8 BS!
