    I spent 6 hours in their ER. The entire staff was super friendly, attentive and very competent. It was a 2 hour wait after I checked in and the time I was seen....not too bad for a busy ER. They did take EMS and walk in bleeders ahead of me which is understandable. I would like especially to thank my ER nurse, Frank, a man who really excelled at his job. It was obvious he took pride in his job.

    PA Sarah took care of my child through the emergency room and I have no complaints she was kind professional and she had a nice conversation with my husband, my son and I. My son ended up having stitches in his foot and I am forever grateful that she took x-rays and found out that he did not have any broken bones and let's just say I feel that she crossed her T's and Dot her i's. My son is a baseball player and he can't play for 10 days but I am hopeful that no infection will occur and that he's going to be just fine .Upon entering the emergency room there were no other patients so they saw my son right away.I did not have to wait!!!! The emergency room area was very clean and everybody was very kind and most importantly we were seen right away. now it took some time in the back but that's expected. We were the first ones to go in and the first ones to get out I believe. The experience of being in a clean kind caring environment was awesome. The accident that brought me to the hospital was unfortunate but thanks to the staff at ST.JOSEPH everything ran smoothly there. I highly recommend this hospital every time.

    Things have really changed at this hospital! I was recently admitted to St. Joseph's for pneumonia, through a very new and efficient ER! I can't remember the name of the doctor that admitted me but I'd like to say that he was the most thorough and compassionate physician that I have ever encountered. He had a genuinely kind nature about him and I don't think that I have ever been treated better anywhere.

    My "Nurse" Jerome bedside manner needs improvement. Cursing and moving a needle while it is in a patient arm is not the correct thing to do. I would not let him touch me after that. Leaving my urine sample among the trash on the countertop and trash on my bed is not cool either. Never again.

    Excellent staff, excellent nurses, excellent Doctors. All staff are kind and courteous and take special care to make sure you feel at ease and have whatever you may need. Rooms are kept extremely clean, food is good and serve correct every time, and nurse response time to a call is very fast. Drive many miles to come to use this Hospital. It is the best!!?

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
