5 stars to the staff at St Joes Paterson. My experience was such a pleasure from beginning to end, reception all the way to discharge. God bless you all for the amazing work you do and always with a smile. Thank you for taking care of my daughter!
They saved my life over there after 2 Latinos broke my skull, I got Charity Care and later the surgery was performed really well. Dr Justin Richer is a great doctor. And I am having second surgery in June.
I went to the emergency room today because of bad stomachache. After 2 hours of waiting, someone took me in and after 1 hour, a doctor came in with an echo machine to draw my blood. He didn't know how to draw blood and kept fishing to find the vein. After multiple tries he decided to try to draw blood from my forearm and failed again. On top of the pain I was going through I had to go through the brain of him playing with the needle in my arm. I decided to leave the hospital since no one knew what they were doing and the doctor said why did you even come here, there are other hospitals to go to and made me sign that they are not responsible if anything is to happen to me. But he didn't sign for me that he's stupid and couldn't draw my blood.
I wrote a review for St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center, Paterson (cancer unit), over a year ago, and it seems to have been deleted. Aside from two lovely nurses, the treatment from the staff (doctors, nurses, aides, etc) at this hospital was unforgivable and traumatizing. As a family member of the patient, I saw incompetence, genuine lack of compassion, and laziness. I'm sure that much of the problem is rooted in how the hospital is managed (employees being understaffed and underpaid), but it is no excuse. Period. I will not go into detail of the situation, but a few things I experienced at St. Joseph's- An oncologist mocked cancer patients who were taking morphine. Nurses and doctors did not recognize hepatic encephalopathy (changes in brain function due to high levels of ammonia) and I HAD TO BRING IT TO THEIR ATTENTION. When I asked an aide for assistance, I was treated like the ultimate inconvenience. For comparison, I have had experience at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick and the difference was night and day, on all counts. St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center, Paterson, made an already very traumatic experience a million times worse.
ABSOLUTELY THE WORLDS WORST HOSPITAL EVER. HOW DO HAVE A 90 YEAR OLD WOMAN SIT IN THE ER FOR OVER 6 HOURS WITHOUT BEING SEEN YET LACK OF CARE STAFF AND KNOWLEDGE THE SIMPLE FACT IT HAS NOTHING BUT BAD REVIEWS IS SHAMEFUL. WERE NOT EVEN IN A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY!!!!!!!
