Ratings for St. Joseph Hospital
Waited over an hour and A half to be seen at ER while having severe chest pains told I would have went right in if I had taken an ambulance instead of driving! Found out I had a major blockage, which was finally taken care of! hospital is filthy! Staff very rude! No compassion at all! I had to take 2 nitro just to ease my pain while waiting! If your health is important to you, don't ever go here! Had family members have similar experiences with them! Don't ever go here! Managment needs to do a lot better!
Worst hospital ever for ER care. I was there with my elderly mother brought in by squad for just over 5 hours. Never examined, never put in gown, no doctor ever saw her or talked to her. Sent home with 2 broken boned. I thought just bruised, called family foctir, she took care of my mother right away, even asked, " what hospital sent her home like this. " several friends have lost dear ones in this ER due to neglect, my sister list her son here in the ER.....waiting. Truly no compassion or care given. Will never go back there, ever.
I was seen by Dr Estridge and found him to be caring and informative. He spent time making sure everything was understood by not only me but my family. However, I was not seen by him everyday and another Dr came in named Callaha that was short with me and basically just made me feel I was a bother to him. The nurses there were really good, and overall everyone I dealt with for testing was very professional. That being said the place is in serious need of updating. The TV in my room horrible, spend 6 days on bedrest and that becomes important. The poor male nurse that night busted his head on it so bad he was bleeding. The food is horrible, my family said the cafeteria food was even worse. The last thing is they could do a better job cleaning the place. I was told they had just cleaned the room but there was still those used covers that go on the thermostat piled up in the respirator jug on the wall and there was what seemed like gum dried on my sheets and tape on the bed.
