Went back after 20 years hoping it was better and it's even worse. While waiting in the ER with my 5 year old who was bleeding from the head after a fall, an off duty JPD officer came in with her pre-teen... more child who had a much more minor injury than my daughter and they called her first. I come from a family of a retired policeman and I understand the relationship between hospital staff and police officers, however it should NOT apply in the ER where you take patients by level of urgency. My daughter was in a lot of pain and bleeding significantly. I was appalled and told my nurse so. She couldn't have cared less and acted like they were doing us a favor by helping my daughter. The attending physician did such a poor job on the staples, they hurt my daughter more coming out than going in. Her Pediatrician said one staple in particular was so poorly done it took him and his nurse just to get it out. It was the worst experience I've ever had with a supposed medical care provider and I refuse to pay for such ridiculous service. You have what my insurance paid and that's all your getting...ever. I, nor anyone in my care, will ever return to this hospital.
My doctor admitted me in the hospital straight after a visit with him. I'd received the best of care. All the staff was amazingly hospitable, professional, warm, caring, knowledgeable and friendly. My... more stay at St. Joseph Hospital was very comforting.
I was admitted to St. Joes and spent a week there in 2W Room 2006. While there I was pleased with the entire nursing staff and CNA's. So friendly and punctual when I hit the nurse call button. Very... more respectful to ones needs and rest. Did not have a bad night's sleep while there. Because of unfortunate health reasons, I will be spending more time at St Joes. I am sure the service will be again Grade A.
