    I was very impressed with the emergency room staff and response to my wife. The entire process was worth it when deciding to come here. Jase, Rocky, Chad, Robbie and Todd were happy to help and assist no matter what. Jase was totally handling the various patients that were in need of help when getting assessed in the ER. I will definitely feel very good when going to St. Joseph's for the premium care.

    Came in with a cat bite and had to get around 7 shots. The lady that took care of me was really nice and friendly. Not to mention the fact that she was very gentle and understanding. The shots were painful, but the nurse made things much better. Would recommend. 5/5.

    I went to the emergency room because of having pain all over my body. Waited in the waiting room for a little over an hour and called to a room. The nurse went to take blood and didn't put the turnic on my arm so the blood would flow, she has to reduce it the right way after poking around. She spilled blood on the blanket I was lying on.The doctor came in and she was very rude. She just asked a few questions and left, she never examine me. She order all these test I didn't need. After being there for six hours we finally asked if we could go since we haven't seen anybody in two hours. Well a nurse came in and gave me discharge papers and said nothing is wrong but take two days off of work and rest. I never saw the doctor again. I won't go back and I won't recommend this hospital to anyone!!?

    Absolutely wonderful experience. After a nightmare stay a few months ago at Memorial Hospital cattle factory here, this was a real joy. Usually one can't wait to leave and go home, here I want to stay and continue being pampered and cared for. ER physician was a bit unpleasant but beyond that, it has been nothing but positive experiences. Excellent physicians who really care, caring attentive staff, nice quiet wings (no chaos), staff very attentive to one's needs, food is good and Hospital is adequately upgraded with current technology. After a week's stay, I'm sure I have healed much more quickly due to this very positive experience. After a life threatening stay at Memorial, I had thought I would have to seek future services from a hospital outside of Savannah, but so happy that I found St. Joseph's and realize you can get excellent medical help here. Thank goodness we have this choice in Savannah. Thank you St Joseph's.

    Before my surgery, the staff were pleasant and conversational. After my surgery the nurses and other hospital staff answered all my questions and listened to me as I asked many questions about the healing and rehabilitation process. They were informative, respectful and made my visit a pleasant and enjoyable one.

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
