By far the worst experience I have ever had with any hospital in my entire life! AVOID THIS ER! I wish I had read the reviews before taking my infant there in the middle of the night! The nurse & Dr were both extremely rude & very condescending! The room was dirty, it had random caps & trash under the bed from the previous patient. The nurse injured my infant resulting in him bleeding!!!! She gave him double the dose of tylenol that Riley Children's Hospital recommended, she tried to give it to him laying flat on his back & got mad when I insisted he sit up so he would not choke, she put the medicine syringe on the bare counter & then put it back in my baby's mouth even though I commented on contamination. She came back from leaving me alone for 45 minutes smelling like she just finished smoking a cigarette. This is not all, I could go on & on about my horrible experience! In the end they said they couldn't do anything for my baby. So I went to Riley Children's Hospital where we were admitted for 3 days & 2 nights while we got real QUALITY care & were treated with love & compassion the entire time! DO NOT GO TO ST VINCENT FISHERS! I was so sad to see all these other horrible reviews & realize that it was not just us who they abuse & neglect! They should be ASHAMED of what they are doing to people when we all came to them for medical care!
I had a scheduled Caesarean section here with my third daughter. My OBGYN was Dr. Elizabeth Nowacki. She and the staff were absolutely terrific! Dr. Nowacki went out of her way to make sure that I was comfortable and all my needs met. She is a doctor I can tell anything to without judgment. She truly is the best. Her partners in this practice were also wonderful! I saw each of them during my pregnancy. I would deliver here again in a heartbeat! Especially for the delivery and recovery!
During recovery the staff at the hospital were so kind and thoughtful. They would ask me if I wanted them to take my daughter for a couple hours every night and hold her so I could sleep, which I did and it was awesome! They didn’t come in my room at all hours of the night if they didn’t have to. It was only hospital staff that came too, it wasn’t a huge host of different hospital staff from varying departments all leaving packets. I had the most restful recovery of all three births here at St. Vincent. I also had the best C-section and recovery from the section from the doctors here. I highly recommend!
I was seen in the ER for excruciating abdominal pain (my appendix had burst). I waited to be seen by a MD for 2 hours, and another 2 hours before I was given anything for pain and sent for scans. I got lucky that I didn't die waiting on them to treat me! When I arrived there were only 4 cars in the lot and as I was taken back there was a group of employees just sitting around talking, so I'm unsure why it took so long when I was in so much pain, had a fever of 103.8F and was vomiting. The nurse, BEVERLY C, was as rude and inconsiderate as they come. She also made several OSHA violations, which can endanger lives. Avoid her at all costs if you MUST go to this ER, but with so many others in the area, and IU health right across the way, I would avoid this small, unprepared, understaffed, incompetant hospital at all costs. I saw Dr. Gardner who was very nice, but appeared stoned/high on narcotics. All has been formally reported.

I hate leaving reviews like this, however I am very upset and beside myself with my experience. I went to the ER, with severe neck pain, and unable to rotate my neck. The nurses were great, however when the doctor finally spoke with me, I was told I had neck pain and needed to go to an orthopedics speacilist.. Ummm, ok!!! I couldnt move my neck, I was in severe pain, and I know this hospital has x-ray and the whole nine yards! I just spent hundreds of dollars for an ER visit, to be told I have neck pain.. Wow, so dissappointed. I even had a nurse apologize to me and didnt understand it either!! So now I am home, still in pain, and unable to move my neck! I will be reporting this to my insurance company as I feel this is Fraud, you pay for a service and get nothing. Oh, its just neck pain, dont mind that big bulge on back of your spine on your neck, take some aleve. Unreal, I cant make this up folks! Luckily, I have an appt with ortho indy tomorrow. Dont waste your time or your money, go somewhere else that will actually examine you the right way!!! I apologize for the negative review, but this was not acceptable for me...
My ECG tech was very kind, and explained everything to me.
