    This hospital is by far the best, hands down! The doctors, nurses, and staff are always happy to help with anything you need. My dad has been in and out of this hospital a year now. I thank God for opening a door in leading us to this place! I would rate it a 10 if there was an option to do so!

    The team at St. Joseph's Hospital Emergency Department is wonderful! During the Christmas weekend, my father became extremely ill and needed a late night trip into the emergency room. With no wait, we were taken into a room where they quickly assessed his condition and began treating him. Thanks to their expertise and fast intervention, he was able to be released within only a few hours to continue care at home and follow up with his regular physician. I am so grateful to the entire team, especially our awesome nurse Alex, for your skill and kindness in caring for my father.

    I've had two doctors make up FAKE APPOINTMENTS at St. Joseph's Hospital. They did this to my mother when she was living and my mother fell for their deception. Now they are doing it to me! I was in Boston, MA, when they called and told me I had an appointment the next day at St. Joseph's Hospital. I informed the doctor's office that I was seeing a specialist in Boston the next week and never made an appointment with their doctor. I told them I would never step foot in their doctor's office again! They knew I was on to them and said they were sorry. Who's the running the hospital? Nothing but NITWITS! They Make Up FAKE APPOINTMENTS! This is St. Joseph Hospital's way of separating the patient from their money. St. Joseph's Hospital is NOT A HOSPITAL, it's a CORRUPT BUSINESS preying on the elderly, sick and infirmed!!! SHAME ON ST JOSEPH'S HOSPITAL!

    Travelling and on holiday is not the best time to get sick. However, I am very grateful for the outstanding medical staff at St. Joseph's, especially their ER team. My family was treated quickly and kindly. We were only in the ER for a few hours, received treatment by compassionate nurses, and skilled physicians. St. Joseph's ER is superior to several other's we've visited this year. A huge thank you to the St. Joseph's team.

    We checked in here two hours ago, when the ersonel finally got to the paperwork, they were very rude. Asking about my dead husband. Which is non of their bussiness.One person got an attitude and turned it over to someone else. A person could die waiting here.Will never come here again, that's a promise.

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
