St.Josephs Hospital experience needs a lot of help. My mom was a nurse and I know for a fact that she would have been appalled at the lack of care provided at this hospital.
The ER staff did pretty well and my doctor was great. Once my care was transferred, I would have to say, that floor was better then the floor below the ICU. One of the only complaints about the 5th floor was that they didn’t clean my bed while I was up there and I was a mess on the 3rd floor. I asked to speak with a patient at several points in my care,but have yet to see one.
Respiratory care has done a good job however, I am not on a constant monitor and I am feeling short of breath and uncomfortable quite a bit.
My doctors have been great, but they need a good support staff ie. nurses, nurses aids ext. that were seriously negligent throughout my care while on the third floor.
I did all the cleaning in my room, and am the only reason I don’t have an infection or bed sores while staying at this hospital.
Patient advocate lacking
Poor nursing skills “3rd floor”
Uncaring environment “does not provide a healing environment”
I hope if nothing else, someone with the ability to do something about these matters, chooses to do so.
This is just sad.
