We Believe. A simple phrase with powerful meaning. Beliefs guide our actions, dictate our decisions and keep us focused on our mission to advance our healing ministry. For a century, St. Elizabeth Community... more Hospital has provided a beacon of hope for the ill and the injured.
As for my experience, they took me back with in 20 minutes, diagnosed shingles right away, which 2 other health professionals in chico did not seem to know, took another hour to get in the back back,... more but once there great service, 2 nurses checked and double checked. Even called my oncologist. I've heard horrible things about here, esp from my husband who hates it here. I personally, appreciate not having ti drive 1 hour to enloe, which I think sucks
What I find hilariousis that this place?is suppose to be run by the sisters of mercy!!!!!If that's the case I hate to see what the sisters who hate sick people do with people. If your a chronic pain sufferer... more or have a chronic condition run don't walk away from here. I was brought in very I'll by ambulance. The ran a blood panel. The was a substance in my blood that CAN be associated with drug us. HOWEVER in my case I had a prescription for. The doctor came in and asked me why this substance was in my system (?????) I explained that I had a prescription for the substance to which I was told no such thing existed!!!!!(wow if that doesn't SCARE u) I told him to go to the pharmacy and ask about the med I was on and once he realized HIS error he could come at me a who different kind of way. he left he checked he was wrong and from that moment on I've never been treated worse in my life!!!I was left naked and wet in a shower stall for 30 minutes shivering. when the nurse finally came to church and see if I had died she yelled at me becauseshe had put my towels and fresh cloth in a place where they got soaked. it only went down hill from there. I could go on but why both. long and short. TAKE YOUR PEOPLE TO A HOSPITAL THAT PERHAPS GIVES A RATS ADS ABOUT PEOPLE.
Please care for your elderly loved ones by taking them elsewhere so their lives aren't at risk! This is a warning from observations noted as recurring over the past decade!
This hospital says it's... more 'Top 100' but the evidence strongly suggests that either money or something else was exchanged to receive that rating!
Sterile protocols not followed in the CCU, bodily fluid receptacles not removed from the room for 4 days, baths given in known drafts (risk of pneumonia), meds not updated (wrong med ordered that would have cost a life), patient history not taken that would have warned of known dangerous side effects to certain drugs, food that is anything but healthy (if it is food at all) and includes cheap ingredients with chemicals known to be carcinogenic, staff that speaks with degrading terms to patients, etc. (fill in the blanks).
Please be your own advocate and watch everything that's done - they might know physiology but they don't know your loved one!!!!!!!
