Run away from this place. A family member ended up with sepsis from this place two times and almost died both times. I also had knee surgery here, Dr. Oldenburg was the surgeon. I had a pain block in my... more leg so I was awake during the surgery. The first 1.5 inch of the incision on my knee was not "numb" and I felt him cutting me. I asked repeatedly for him to stop but he refused. His bedside manner was equally as horrible. While in the hospital a nurse attempted to hook up a bag of autoimmune medication into my IV. I questioned her because I don't have an autoimmune disorder and she just laughed at me. My wife luckily came in before she finished hooking the IV up and straightened out the ordeal. Finally the nurse figured out the meds belonged to my roommate. The same nurse also dropped a syringe on the floor and attempted to still inject it into my IV (no wonder my family member ended up with sepsis two times from this place). I complained to the patient relations department but that was completely useless as well. My incision was infected and Dr. Oldenburg squeezed it with his bare hands.
This is a horrible place. If you care about your loved ones please don't bring them here. St. Joes is a much better choice or go to Portland.
Since my father-in-law needs bloodwork done constantly due to cancer care, as well as an iron-deficiency issue, his veins are a challenge to find for the needed care. He was sent to EMMC to have a (temporary)... more catheter put in, so he could go back for the necessary care. The nurses were very caring and kept their patient calm and entertained (talking about sports, soaps, etc.), so he did not concentrate on what was happening. The valet service was also great, especially since he was weak from the iron-deficiency issue, so I could place him at the door, into a wheelchair, then to his appointment.
