I had my 2 sons at this hospital only because my OB was the best!! Dr. Lombard is the best.
During both my son’s delivery I had bad experiences with different issues.
The... more first time when my son was born I asked for an epidural and the anestheologist almost killed me ( i didnt catch his name) but I could have sued him ended his career but i didnt.
He was talking to this new nurse when he was injecting me in my spine and the next thing I knew was that I couldnt breathe and I passed out and I woke up and the nurse kept telling me that I was fine and i should just breathe.
So I asked the doctor that why this has happened and if I had a bad reaction to the medicine and He ADMITTED that he caught a vein ( in another word he admitted that he made a mistake ) medically speaking he skipped the step where he was suppose to draw the needle before injecting the medicine to make sure that he was in my spine, he was suppose to check if he sees clear flued or blood. If he injected the whole thing I could have died right there and my husband even wouldnt know what exactly happened to me. Because they could have just told him that I had a bad reaction and died.
I was scared for my life and my childs.
And he asked me if i want to go for it again and i told him NOWAY, i dont wanna die because of his carelessnes.
During my next baby’s delivery, I was induced because my baby was getting too big and doctor didnt want to wait for the baby to come by naturally.
So everything was good up until I started having really strong pain and I called the nurse but she wouldnt come and I was in the room all by myself screaming and crying and the nurse name was Angelina. She was the worst nurse I have ever came a cross in my entire life.
I felt like a burden to her everytime she was around so I really prefered that she is not there. And everytime she comes in she was on her cellphone and then she would just disappear for a while.
I really dont know how she got a job as a nursing because she clearly didnt have the heart to care for people.
We are planning on having another child and I really wish to see Dr. Lombard and deliver my baby wih her but I dont trust most of the staffs who are working at St. Joseph and I am gonna look for a different hospital.
This hospital is clean, staff is welcoming, professional and friendly. Wait time is not long at all. They are very consistent. Staff makes you feel comfortable during your visit. They stay updated with... more technology.
my husband was on the 9th floor for Headaches and not one person on the whole floor ever seemed to busy to help him. they were caring and always informing us what they were doing. I went down stairs every... more day and enjoyed to people in the café and gift shop. when we were leaving the front desk called us a cab and took care of everything.. NOT ONE PERSON WAS EVER RUDE OR UNCONCERNED. wish other hospitals were like this one
