Great hospital not far from where I live. I even had my son there back in 06.

When my medication is due I hit my nurse up 20 mins before so that they have it ready. But instead I have to wait over an hour just to receive my medication. So i sit here in pain and I've been dealing with this for 2 days in a row and I'm tired of it I wanted to talk to the head of the hospital and have my attorney speak with them also bc I refuse to be treated this way! My name is nickolas larussa!

This hospital use to be a great place for quality of care and it no longer services patients of Lake Charles with respectability, dignity, and has lost the trust of Lake Charles.

I do not know what has happened since the merge of Christus St Patrick’s hospital, but it stinks from high heaven from the attitude that is coming from the staff.

The high rise in the neglect of patient care of this hospitals reputation is being perceived as allegedly fraudulent and will end up a big liability the way it is damaging Lake Charles patients trust and credibility.

Nobody should be charged for care that was not properly given.
Nobody should be charge for a doctor they did not see.
Nobody should be charged for a nurse practitioner they did not see.

We know that ambulance patients come first and you’re always heavily understaffed and booked yet the other patients are left neglected waiting for hours which causes more unnecessary pain and suffering.
Isn’t there a better way to inform patients that you’re heavily booked, and the wait may be really long? So that we can cancel in dignity and go somewhere else?

You now have the triage nurses who come up doing the nurse practitioners job and the doctor’s job in consulting patients in the waiting lobby publicly disclosing private confidential patient diagnoses which should be done privately and not disclosed entirely in front of OTHER waiting patients.

I will never return to this hospital nor can recommend this hospital to anyone until there is a change in management, attitude, and the care given that is proven guaranteed trust worthy.

Absolutely pathetic. If you have an emergency do not go here.
