feedback about St Patrick Hospital
Had a lumbar spine puncture in radiology earlier this week. I don't remember any names of nursing staff or the doctor who performed the procedure. But it went great. The nursing staff was incredible before and after the procedure. So accommodating. Kept asking if I needed food or water, extra pillows or new warm blankets. And I could tell they genuinely cared about my well being. They were so kind and comforting. They made the entire experience much less stressful. Really wonderful staff!
In October we were visiting our son in Missoula from Chicago when I started having severe stomach pains. Showed up at St Patrick’s hospital ER and was immediately seen by the ER doctor. After a CT scan it was determined I had diverticulitis and an abscess on my intestine. I was admitted and was immediately put on antibiotics and that evening had a drain inserted to try and drain the abscess. They were hoping to stabilize me so I could get back to Chicago. After 3 days the doctors on the silver team determined the infection was getting worse so they made the decision to operate. Unfortunately the abscess had burst and blew a small hole in the colon and I had to have a colostomy.
The doctors, nurses and aides were fabulous!!
They managed my pain perfectly and were attentive to my every need.
I was in room 508 for 10 days and loved the big picture window
that allowed me the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking Montana skies.
In a month I am going to have my colostomy reversed at our hospital back in Chicago and pray that my experience here will be as positive as the one in St Pat’s in Missoula
Everyone at this hospital took care of Gary with such kindness. The nurses and doctors not only took good care of Gary, they were thoughtful of me also.
It has been a while but I would not be here today if not for the great Doctors here at saint Pat's. I was pushed into ER on a wheel chair. They took me right in few minutes later I had 6 nurses and 3 Doctors over me trying to save my life. I had Phnomina the Doctors told me I would not have made another night. I spent a week in ICU and another week upstairs healing and learning how to get up get around again. It's hard for me to not think of the great staff 10 years ago. I remember them almost every week Thank You St Patrick's staff for everything
Its a 2 star review. This pertains to the mental health aspect. In their defense, I did begin to behave like Jack Nichols in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". Way too many pharmaceuticals used and not much talking. Sleeping is good, drugged coma- bad. Luckily I was allowed to escape after 1 day but I have a feeling most do not. Perma-bedhead isn't a good look for me. Sadness is temporary while a permanent mark of "insanity" lasts a lifetime in the beast system. Just my .2 cents.
