    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.

    I had to go to the ED late in the evening. The care was fantastic- all were courteous and concerned. I was sent quickly and my needs were met. The physician and nurses were timely in their care and very responsive. My husband was also informed of all that was occurring

    St.Josephs Hospital experience needs a lot of help. My mom was a nurse and I know for a fact that she would have been appalled at the lack of care provided at this hospital. The ER staff did pretty well and my doctor was great. Once my care was transferred, I would have to say, that floor was better then the floor below the ICU. One of the only complaints about the 5th floor was that they didn't clean my bed while I was up there and I was a mess on the 3rd floor. I asked to speak with a patient at several points in my care,but have yet to see one. Respiratory care has done a good job however, I am not on a constant monitor and I am feeling short of breath and uncomfortable quite a bit. My doctors have been great, but they need a good support staff ie. nurses, nurses aids ext. that were seriously negligent throughout my care while on the third floor. I did all the cleaning in my room, and am the only reason I don't have an infection or bed sores while staying at this hospital. Patient advocate lacking Poor nursing skills "3rd floor" Uncaring environment "does not provide a healing environment" Unclean I hope if nothing else, someone with the ability to do something about these matters, chooses to do so. This is just sad.

    I had both my hips replaced at St. Joseph's Hospital. A great experience both visits. I'm already back at work and enjoying long walks again!

    My experience thus far: Good doctors, confused administration. I am scheduled for a lumbar puncture at the end of this week, which my health insurance informs me needs pre-authorization. This appointment was scheduled three days ago, and my doctor's office and the hospital have yet to contact my insurance company. I spoke to 6 different nurses and staff at my doctor's office and the hospital yesterday and was transferred to answering machines, bounced around between offices that didn't know what to do, and even got to sit through a woman's coughing fit as she hacked and gagged into the phone while trying to speak with me. I called my insurance company today and they still have heard nothing about my lumbar puncture. I called the hospital today, and was yet again transferred to someone's voicemail. I called my doctor's office again and was shrugged off and then quickly cut-off by a nurse who couldn't care less. It looks like I may have to cancel this much needed, vision-saving procedure because of the pure incompetence of the St. Joseph's staff. All I need is someone, anyone, to pick up a phone and call my health insurance to get this procedure pre-authorized before Friday. Again, nice friendly doctors...but lazy confused staff. *Update: Finally, on call number eight, one person was able to explain that it will take three business days for someone at St. Joseph's to contact my insurance. Finally after getting a hold of my insurance, they were told that this procedure apparently doesn't need to be pre-authorized after all! Confusion abound! But at least I received a response from a helpful staff member.

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
