    I recently had orthopedic surgery at St. Joseph's Hospital. The staff and nurses were all efficient and caring. I hardly had any pain. The PT staff was great too. St. Joseph's is the only place to go for outstanding medical care in Savannah!

    Do not go here if your having a panic attack. It took my partner passing out from hyperventilating to get a room during a severe panic attack. After getting a room we were told a doctor would see us shortly, this was at 10:30pm and a doctor didn't come in until 1am. He spoke to us for no more than 5 minutes, not kidding, while my partner was still actively panicking. He was speaking so fast that neither of us could get a word out, only taking vitals and prescribing medication. He told the nurse to prescribe my partner with two benzos without a without any blood or urine test to check for any other drugs in their system that they could have a negative reaction with. Then his recommended psychiatrist was not covered by my partners insurance, leaving us without any idea of where to go for help. During this whole ordeal my partner was never asked whether or not they had self-harming or suicidal thoughts, despite coming in for a severe panic attack. After the visit my partners panic attack continued for the next two days. Do not go here if your suffering from a mental illness.

    I had surgery on my ankle and the staff was great. Dr. Prather did an excellent job on my ankle and I would recommend him to anyone. His bedside manner was impeccable and very thorough. The nurses were very helpful and always helped me when I needed something.

    I was very pleased with the care I received. Everyone was so pleasant and friendly. I really felt I mattered. I will always prefer St. Joseph's. Thanks to everyone who took care of me. The only part that was negative was the rooms with no tub or shower. I did not even have a mirror and no door on toilet area. Very awkward if you have a visitor. But 5 stars for service.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
