This star should be a zero!!!! It wouldn't let me though not put a star. This Hospital needs a new overhaul. I Went to the ER yesterday for my heart going in and out of Afib. Registration and testing went quickly. (My heart rate was and still is 48 beats per minute and blood pressure is low). Then from there on in went downhill. Went up 3 times and told the receptionist I was feeling worse. Was informed she would tell the nurse. She did not or they decided to ignore it. Patients with broken bones and flu were all taking in to be seen by a doctor. At one point a young man with a broken hand threatened to leave and the one lady took him right in the back to be seen by a doctor!!!!!! After 6 hours I again tried to find out what was going on. Nurses from the back then came out and did a role call to see who hadn't left or been seen. 8 hours later still not seen and went up. I was informed the one lady was not allowed to leave her desk and the other lady said there was nothing they could do. After 8 1/2 hours we left!!! I am now filing a legal complaint and have informed my family IF ANYTHING happens to me they are to file a lawsuit. This place needs retraining or Shut Down!!!
This hospital should be shut down, in my opinion. My great aunt has been having a series of mini strokes. She was admitted into St. Francis for the last one. The doctor never came to see her but one time. They explained that she has a fully clogged major artery, and then merely discharged her without doing ANYTHING about it. They also gave her a prescription for insulin for her blood sugar, which she has never had before, so a nurse was supposed to come back to show her how to do it. No nurse ever came. Her prescription was picked up - a vial of insulin, no syringes or anything, and she has no clue how to do it. She is now out of the hospital, and is a ticking time bomb due to the clog in her artery. St. Francis does not care about its patients.
Most staff in any department, were not prompt or helpful. Only Cardiovascular Care ICU were prompt, courteous, informative, & accurate. Sorry to say, I've been to Shadyside Hospital in Pennsylvania.
The pain Management clinic is one of the best I have ever been too. Doctors are extremely helpful and patient with you. Some of the best care I have received after suffering with pain for over 15 years. The waiting rooms are clean and quite.
When I lived here years ago (30+) St. Francis was a premier hospital in this area. I know this next statement just might shock some of you, but I had much rather be in a VA hospital than St Francis. I have received much, much better care at the James A. Haley VA hospital in Tampa FL. That's a fact Jack. I was cut from ankle to groin so I had a massive bandage that needed to be changed 3 to 4 times daily. I have gone all night with out it ever being touched. I woke up at 3:30 this AM and my wound dressings were soaked and coming off. I'm not a happy camper.😤😤😤😤 The nurse I received the most rude and unprofessional attitude was a young lady named Shondra.
