St. Joseph nothing saint about that idiotic place ,do not know what the heck they are doing ,do not take your loved ones there. They will make whatever sickness they have worse.They should be closed down. Lord be with anyone who goes there.
The only reason why I give this a 2 star is because the nurse I had was great. I was also seen right away but only because I went in due to stomach complications. Now it goes down hill from here. I had an ultrasound done and a CT scan. The doctor left before giving me my results to either. I waited almost 2 hours for them to give me results and my pain started coming back because morphine was wearing off. My fiancé had to ask if the results were in which they were and I'm figuring they were in sooner than we thought. The told me to go ahead and get dressed they were going to discharge me. We waited over an hour for discharge. Because the doc left I was forgotten about. The nurse that helped me is the one that finally got me out of there only because she saw me STILL waiting to be discharged, but nothing was told to me about my diagnosis. They didn't even want to prescribe me pain meds which my fiancé had to advocate for me to get. I arrived at 7pm the night before and was discharged at 4:40 am.
On to that morning, still in severe pain. I have kaiser and the only reason I even went to St. Joseph's was because I thought they were a contracted hospital with Kaiser. So I call the Kaiser advice nurse they told me to come in right away I went to OBGYN because they thought maybe it might be my cervix or ovaries. Neither of those checked out so I went to Kaiser emergency. The doctors there took care of me right away. I was given another ultrasound and an x-ray. St. Joseph took forever to give Kaiser my medical charts and when my doctors did receive them their notes said I have severe fecal impaction.
Now if they knew this why did they not tell me this at discharge and why did they prescribe me pain meds that would actually have an adverse effect on my condition. Smh..... I will never go back to St. Joseph's again. Kaiser took care of me and prescribe me the right meds and I was sent home.
I went there last night due to a chronic cough that I had already had for 3 weeks. I thought they were just going to tell me to take some over the counter medication and send me on my way, but instead they actually treated me! I checked into the ER for 5:30AM via the online check in we got there at 5am and they instantly took my vitals and asked me about my illness. They sent me back to the waiting area and not even 5 minutes later they called me back. I was given a breathing treatment, medicine, chest xray and blood drawn. Very thorough, staff was very friendly, I even saw the security guard assisting a patient with finding them a couple of blankets. Super sweet!
Important hospital for the community. Great nurses and passionate staff.
Douglas Demartinis is the rudest doctor I’ve ever met in my life. I have never been treated with so much disrespect at any emergency room like I have today. 👎🏼 Egotistical would be an understatement.
