    Last fall, my husband was admitted for anaphylaxis due to a reaction to a new Med. He was released the following day even though prednisone was not controlling his allergic reaction and, being a diabetic, he was not told the effects of prednisone on blood sugar or given instructions or a prescription for the quick acting insulin he had been given while admitted. I had to rush him straight to Robert Packer to his endocrinologist for emergency care straight from St. Joseph's hospital. The nurses are awesome here but the medical care is sloppy. Last night my son was brought by ambulance here with a five inch gash in his throat. It was two hours before the doctor on duty even looked at his wound. It required 10 stitches to close. It was another two to two and a half hours before it was sutured. The director of the ER came in this morning and I can't believe it, but I have a hard time thinking of any other professional in recent history more rude or condescending than this man. I would avoid this hospital at all costs unless there is absolutely no other recourse. That said, with so many hospitals in the area, maybe they should step up to the plate and accept ALL medical emergencies so there are other options. St. Joseph's is the bully on the block because they know that there are some cases where patients have nowhere else to go.

    Had to go to the ER late at night, everyone was very nice and they got me out of there in an hour. Was very happy with all the service and the nurses and doctors where very good.

    I went here for a simple procedure. I was to get an endo and colonoscopy that was prescribed by one of their own doctors. After going through the entire fast and detox I arrived at the hospital an hour before my procedure, tired, sick, and hungry. I was admitted only to find out that they could only do my endoscopy which means that i went through two days of pure torture for nothing. This is supposed to be a highly regarded institution, accept they cannot bother to call you before the procedure, nor can they keep their medical information straight. This makes me wonder who else they have screwed over, and medical information they have screwed up.

Compare The Number of Problems

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
