This is the worst hospital to come to. My daughter has an history of seizures and was transfer by ambulance from AI DuPont hospital for children to St. Francis to meet the neurologist here. It’s now... more 1:10pm and no one haven’t seen her yet. It’s been 4 hours and they still haven’t done anything yet. Please don’t Come to this hospital nor bring your love ones. Nurse is loud on the phone talking to an family member, 2 other nurses laughing and talking about another patient. Doctor talking about an patient with an heart condition, no privacy. I will never come here again.
I HATE ST. FRANCIS HOSPITAL !
I could write pages on this. Worst I would say is they put IV in arm right inside elbow. Needless to say I woke up about every few min. all night. Every time I moved... more it set the BP machine to go off. They tried to even tape my arm down. Finally just close to A.M. I asked them to move it somewhere else. Did they do it, of course not. The following I think is the most horrible of all.I have spent at least the last 6 months trying to get my bill fixed.I finally broke down and paid it because it was that or my credit.Cost me $2500.because Dr.Cosgrove put outpatient on my chart instead of inpatient.If it was inpatient the whole bill would have been paid.I went to everyone possible there for help Guess what no one could help. NO SURPRISE THERE !! I was in there 2 days. I even HAVE the paper from them that says INPATIENT on it...This Dr. sits on the board of that hospital and supposedly is the only one that can fix it..NEVER EVER AGAIN !!
I was very surprised and disappointed by the service I received at St. Francis when I had a fall and broke my hip and come in for emergency surgery. Due to lack of care (and explanation), my back went... more into a bad spasm before surgery; nothing was done to alleviate it. The anesthetist asked me what pain medicine I'd received earlier; wasn't it on my chart? Why trust the patient to remember? After surgery, the visiting staff doctor commented on my hip, but told me my arm was OK--when, actually, my chart showed that I had broken my shoulder. (Nice careful reading.) A small point--I'm vegetarian, and but asked for vegetarian meals. I was brought meat. It means that the staff weren't listening or weren't paying attention.
