Before you go to St. Anthony’s Hospital – Emergency Center, you may want to know what the people who have already gone to this St. Petersburg emergency room think.
D MooreThe WORST ER experience i’ve ever had. I sat and waited there for over THREE HOURS without being seen. There were no gunshot victims ahead of me! No trauma helicopters! Just the slowest ER EVER with staff who couldn’t care less and who kept changing the number of patients ahead of me. I will never, EVER go back to St. Anthony’s ER, not for any reason no way not EVER!!Amanda WagnerThis hospital is mean to the patients. Leave them soaked in urine. Remove TV cords from the room to punish them. Treat them horribly! Follow this tiktok to see more… @sandrasutterfieldJenn ManleyThis place is a joke. I’ve been here twice now and have never received such incompetent “care.” Expect to answer the same questions at least four times for four different nurses and doctors you’ll never see again. I don’t know if it’s the computer system they’re using, general bureaucracy that slows everything down to a snail’s pace, or frustrated staff, but this ER needs to make some SERIOUS changes. STAY AWAY!Suzy Erichsen⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI entered the emergency room with severe pain on my right side. I was treated kindly and seen by someone within 10 minutes. Diagnosed with appendicitis, admitted and had surgery the next day. Everyone who treated me was kind and professional. I appreciated that nothing was rushed and the staff took time to explain what was happening to me. I had excellent care in a time when I needed help and was unable to care for myself. Thank you to the staff at St. Anthony’s hospital for the wonderful job you all did. You are a good team and I greatly appreciate it.a b0bfelice⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI’m newer to the area, but this seems to be the “go to” hospital in the St. Petersburg vicinity and has the most departments and services on this side of the bay. As such, it is very busy — no matter which day of the week you go in. So keep that in mind as you may be waiting and treated for many hours. Once registered, you’ll have your vitals taken (you keep the BP cuff) and there’s a good chance they’ll draw blood. Then you wait based on how your criticality, and bed space. If you feel you may need to have specialized machinery or care as part of your diagnosis, then this is the place for you. If it’s relatively simple, perhaps another facility would be better as that may reduce your wait time. Personally, I researched my problem in advance and knew a lumbar puncture might be needed, so I chose to go here. Indeed they performed that (it went fine). The hospital’s facilities are modern and well equipped. The staff is kind and understanding. I was admitted to the hospital and I found the hospital beds “interesting” as they deflate/inflate wherever it detects weight. Same positive reviews for the hospital portion. If you suspect you might be admitted to the hospital, it’s handy to bring your phone charger, daily medications and some fresh clothes with you just in case. Best wishes.cewaltj na⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedMy sister went into emergency. No wait, very Professional and responsive staff each clearly explained the process and each step. Facility very clean had cleaning staff right in room as soon as patient left sanities very responsive. Security tight some may complain about it but you feel safe unfortunately these days you need take Security seriously. Rooms private in emergency area X-ray, registration and lab all came to the room. Stayed overnight staff listens and responds to needs. No waiting waiting and until someone would coming to see. Equipment employee was caring and funny deliver walker explained how to use and comfort and supportive of sisters healing. Only stayed one night and the whole staff who took care of sister came in to say by and wish good health. Lucky to have such a great place not far who truly cares for patientsAng Bosley⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI was nervous about going here after reading the reviews but my neurologist is with the st anthony’s group and he’s the best I’ve ever been to so I figured it can’t be that bad. I was really sick, so sick I couldn’t talk or swallow well. It was really hard to try and get out what was wrong with me so I’m sure they thought I was crazy. But they got me back right away and the doctors ordered all the tests and figured out what the problems were. The procedure they had to do to make me better was very unpleasant so I’ll spare the details, but the doctors and nurses were all very nice and professional. Especially given the fact I couldn’t speak well they really worked with me and treated me very kindly. And I left in much better condition than when I went in. I don’t have a single complaint, the staff was really amazing and excellent and I’m thankful to them for all they did.Zachary RosenzweigI’ll start out by saying that I have been to my fair share of hospitals (taking friends and family) and never have I seen such an outdated, irresponsible system as their emergency room “fast track”. Essentially, they take the patient and put them in a room alone by themselves while they do their tests no matter how much they ask for their family to be with them. A nurse even laughed when the patient asked for their family to be with them. They should be ashamed that they make their patients suffer alone in fear and pain.Fara RamirezI must say that this is the worst experience I have had in a hospital. I arrived with an 11-month-old boy and spent almost an hour waiting for a pediatrician. They never treated my baby so I decided to go to another emergency room. It is disrespectful to say that this hospital has an emergency room. In my opinion they talk, eat and laugh more than they really work.Eve Lenti⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedVery friendly and helpful. The cafeteria is in the basement, hot meals sandwiches and they hsve ice and water in the dining room. Thank God !Tim Martin⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedThis week I had my third visit in the past 10 years to this emergency room. Each visit has been good, all things considered. The staff and everyone working here was professional, courteous, competent, and caring in my experience. During this most recent emergency I almost did not come back to this emergency room after reading the negative reviews here. I’m glad i did.Patricia Mckown NO ♿️ Last 3 visits. Local over 30+ years Used to go here always. The last 3 visits were SCARY. Crippled serious disease. Went to St Pete General 38th Ave 66th Street. So much better. Not busy. Got wheelchair upon arrival. They even have referral phone number that is quicker easier than contacting my insurance. Had 5 hernia repairs here years ago gr8 care. I think this my new go to ER. James LannomLet see where do i start emergency room staff sit on there cell phones more then they work. The staff here really all need to be fired this place needs to be shut down im not the one getting taken care of here so i see it even she complaining about the staff. The security here is a joke i seen better grauds at the goodwill then this place i think management needs to be looked at or replaced sorry but if i had a choice id would choose to shut down this place amd move everyone out and fire all emplooyeesMiles Mullen⭐️⭐️The emergency room experience was great until I went to fill the prescription they gave me. I am without health insurance so I was greatfull they treated me well and diagnosed the problem and provided temporary pain relief. But when I went to fill the prescription at a pharmacy the 7 pill course which was for arthritis pain was $74 which I did not have I called the ER and asked if they could prescribe anything else. And the answer was an apologetic no. I am still enduring excruciating pain and an taking megadoses of aspirin.Jessica BarryWhat kind of hospital doesn’t allow family to sit with patients while they are scared and in pain in the emergency room? This one. They wouldn’t allow my mother to call me and wouldn’t allow me to see her for hours until I finally convinced a sympathetic nurse to take me back to her when I told him I was studying to be a doctorCTAbsolutely like a 3rd world experience, terrible ER. Bad attitudes all around, taken from the ambulance and dumped into the waiting room, left there for almost 2 hours. DO NOT USE THIS FACILITY!!Leslie M⭐️⭐️Still in shock about the horrible experience in the emergency room. I dropped my boyfriend at the door because he wasn’t sure he could walk from the parking lot. He had a very high temperature, racing heart and was sweating profusely and very confused. I walked in about 3-5 minutes later to find him sitting in a chair with a mask on. He immediately started crying out to me that no one had helped him, only a police officer had handed him a mask at the door. No one responded to his request for a wheelchair or assistance. There was no one else being helped at the counter. The receptionist, a nurse/tec and a police officer seemed to all be watching us yet no one asked anything. I seriously wondered if we were even in the right place. Someone in obvious distress walked in and didn’t get noticed or helped. And what followed when he finally did begin to get help was awkward at best. I was verifying his info at the counter and stood there for about 3 minutes with no response from the receptionist after our last exchange. I finally asked if she needed anything else and she simply replied “no”. She hadn’t told me we were done, she just let me stand there. Really made me feel like I was crazy, or wondered if I had done something wrong. Would not recommend going here for an emergency, unless you arrive unconscious or with limbs hanging from your body. Maybe then they have some sense of urgency. I really still don’t understand what happened…. Important to note is that once we were back being treated – and eventually admitted – the care was and continues to be very good. That’s the only reason for two stars instead of one.Mohammed KhalelPretty bad experience. My father came to this hospital with chest pain (history of heart condition) and he was put into a triage room for hours. Then moved to a “Flex” unit where he is told he can wait till tomorrow for tests and they kicked us out because they said no guests. I’ve never been to a hospital where at least one person can’t stay to care for their loved one or at least keep them company and keep family at home or in the waiting area in the loop. Not to mention the young lady that couriered us to the flex unit was rude. All in all a bad experience and not the way I’d hoped to see my family treated.Patricia MckownNo Wheelchair Available. Xray Tech NOT gentle. My hands wrists are Deformed. They DO NOT GO FLAT. I tried explain she was hurting me. Of couse attitude I tried saying it very respectfully. Please STOP pushing my very painful hands and wrists…you are hurting me. NOT GOOD IDEA. Complain to someone giving you healthcare? But it hurt. Also I fell again outside Xray room while she went to check with doctor, previous fall reason for visit, was Not hurt more than when came in so I did Not make big deal of it but they job of making report they Clearly did Not want to make. There were No Wheelchairs checking in I understand Tech explained but she walked in. Someone I could Not see (was on floor) said Get A Wheelchair and they found one. Next…Nurse suggested sore on hand self infliced cigarette burn…(wth) what the heck?? Was it done to make me feel so disgusting? Or did she really think cig burn? I Only Know Made Me Feel Very Unworthy of Care and Respect. I have lived in Area over 30+years and always came here in past. Don’t think so next time I need care. TWheelchair Not Available. Staff Disrespectful Demeaning me Dismissing Me as Human Being in Pain. Seeing many many other Terrible Negative Reviews I decided to review myself….Others Need to be Warned. St. Anthonys Baycare ER BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH. STAY AWAY. Yes.. they were busy but NO EXCUSE. What happened to Do No Harm? I was called into Xray room but Tech left to speak with Dr. I was told just min. and told to Obey. I went to sit back down and fell to floor. Tech came back Angry (she had to make report. I would Not blame anyone when I was asked..scared to tell TRUTH now and just wanted out) I fell and she certianly WAS NOT GENTLE. I begged her to STOP pushing my very painful hands flat. I was very respectful explaining, my hands and wrists, both sides are Deformed. They will Not go Flat. They stay curled up All time. She was Hurting me and it made me Cry which only made her Angrier. Nurse came in making Report of Fall she suggested sore on hand came in with was from cigarette burn ?? Now Really (wth) what the heck?? She was trying to document me for Self Harm so Fall Report Appeared Good Care. Clever lie to aviod Accountability. I fell scraped up against wall and skin scraped off. THIS WAS NO CIGARETTE BURN. Now Why would she suggest such a thing. To put me in my place? I do not know. Clearly St. Anthonys was More Concerned about their Fall Report than my pain. I Do Not think I even saw a Doctor but paperwork shows one I never met and sure I will be billed. They held me Longer I believe to Scare me and it Worked. I’m in Shock Still. This visit I did Not Experience Compassion I Experienced STIGMA due to Age and Dissability Instead. Lived area 30+years Always have come here but probably will Not next time. JUST HAPPY GOT OUT ALIVE. Kazzy Zekes⭐️⭐️Waiting time is atrocious. Triage was pretty quick but I’m still waiting two hours later. Come on people!P W⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedEfficient, effective, and on point. Immediate attention, professional staff, organized. They’re also expensive, so if your testing can be done at an outside facility research pricing before electing to be treated at St Anthony’s. Having said that, Saint Anthony’s is one of only two hospitals that I would consider in Pinellas County.Katie ManfrediI am still in shock that it is legal to run a first world hospital in the condition that parts of this hospital were in. I was there in the emergency room Friday early afternoon, where it wasn’t horrible. I do want to give a special 5 stars to the nurse named “Myke” who was working that evening of that Friday. He was beyond amazing, caring, informative, and respectful, and deserves recognition. Aside from Myke, I do not have anything positive to say about my recent stay at this hospital. Friday evening I was moved to another wing and was discharged Saturday evening. In this wing I stayed in for over 24 hours, I was shocked that this facility qualified as a hospital, and could in any way shape or form pass a health inspection. I am 5 months pregnant, and the bathroom available was covered in urine and toilet paper. I mean urine on the floor, all over the seat, clogged toilet. I looked at the nurse like “Um, so this is where I pee for the next day or three, or however long I’m here?” she ignored me. The 36-40 hours or so I was there, it did not get cleaned. I was having an extremely hard time sleeping, especially with pregnancy, and politely asked one of the nurses for some water to drink and a Benadryl to help me sleep. She said she would bring it to me, and never did. I did overhear her very loud mouth flirting with all of her male coworkers all night, actually making fun of patients. When I would ask a question, she would shut up and start texting, only letting the men she worked with work for her. Another issue, they lost my phone and purse for a day and were not apologetic, sympathetic….they just didn’t care. It had my social security card, driver’s license, insurance card, money, wallet, keys. Thank God after a few hours once they realized it was lost it was finally found. I am not one to complain, and I’m not a huge fan of the current president, but I do imgaine that if he were to visit this hospital wing when he was in Tampa recently, even he would be appalled. I at least hope he would be. Besides for the one nasty nurse who needs to be working a cashier job at a dollar store with the manners and lack of compassion that she posses, the staff was nice. They told me that they are also shocked at the health care system in this state, and other staff did tell me that they empathize with the patients, because they know a lot of it isn’t exactly right, but they just had to do their jobs. I then went to another hospital that was beautiful and I have nothing but good things to say about. Something needs to be done about this hospital. I have never been to jail, but with the healthcare I was provided there, I may as well have been. Beyond unsanitary and unprofessional.Karrie Booth⭐️⭐️After reading all reviews about hospital, I am reluctant to attend. I unfortunately will not tolerate a Dr. or Nurse speaking down to me. We go to the hospital., not because we want to sit there for hours to be seen. We are going to be relieved of what ever aliment is hurting us. I was going to attend today but think after reading all the negative responses, I will go elsewhere. Thank you to those who have left their comments.Janet WilliamsI was sent home in a cab st said he could not find anything wrong my Blok then i kept falling in my home n daughterfod pressure was high I had been committing do a couple of days I was pouring with sweat got home still vomittin but it was black blood my daughter come to check on me and she called911 my Blood pressure high and they telling me I was having a stroke I begged them not to take me back that they were mean he said I had t i was sent home to haveke now I have to live with my daughter in treat ment having to rebuild my life. I would like to know why they did that i was treated really badplease let me know.heywatchthisMy daughter was in a low speed car accident and received a head wound that required stitches. The police officers recommended that I take her to bayfront medical. I decided that I would take her to St. Anthony’s. That is a decision I would come to regret. When the PA came into the E.R. And started assessing her condition, I made the mistake of mentioning that she had an abrasion on her hand from the air bag deploying. He stopped talking to her in mid sentence, turned around and started admonishing me for interjecting. I do understand what he was trying to convey, but it was his condescending tone that stayed with me. When he came back into the room I told him that I didn’t feel what I said was reason to talk to me in such a derisive manner. He then stated that he was going to explain one more time, and then be done with it. I sat there listening to him explain again, what he was doing, and why he needed to do it, when half way through he stopped and said I wasn’t listening. It was at that point my daughter spoke up and asked why he had to be such an ass. That was the end of his forced civility. He never came back into the room. It’s my opinion that the PA that was assigned to us has a very high opinion of himself, and has very little patience for his patients. I worry that his apathy and derision can be contagious to his coworkers. I am hoping that there may be some kind of remedial seminar that he could attend that would reconnect him to being empathetic of the people that he is supposed to care for. I have lived in St. Petersburg my entire life, and am one of the few left that was actually born at St. Anthony’s. If I ,or anyone in my family, ever needed emergency services St. Anthonys was my default choice. After last nights experience, and reading some google reviews that paint the same picture, I will no longer lean towards St. Anthonys as a care provider. What a shame.Geraldine Meehan⭐️⭐️⭐️Having been to St. Anthony’s with my mom several times, we have had mostly excellent experience. However, one instance of gross incompentence has led to this (only) 3 star review. My mom, at 89, was having a pancreatitis attach. She (almost) never drank alchohol (so not from that). There were two techs working on her in emergency (one on each side) trying to get a line in each arm. She started throwing up (flat on her back) and I had to jump up and hold her head and turn it so she would not asperate, which was very difficult in the position. I said “aren’t you going to help he her, turn her so she doesn’t asperate”? and they said “we have to get these lines in her”. All I could say to that is “She isn’t going to need them if she is dead”… but ulitmately, they did not stop what they were doing and let me do their job. Thank God I was there, she surely would have died on the table. More training of techs is needed to be sure they handle the crisis at hand rather than doing their assigned job even at the cost of a life. Oh and if you bring a very sick person in, make sure you stay with them every minute.Dan ZawadaI was there for 1 hour saw a doctor for less than 2 min and received a bill for over $ 11000. For somebody without insurance this is horrible. Alone the CT scan $ 5611. This is horrible. I am not surprised any more why the health standards in the US is so low. Only the rich can afford care.Steven RoughtonI went to the e r last Friday morning , I was haveing trouble breathing and I had been awake for two days. The doctor ackeded like it made him mad that I came to the e r he said is that why you came here he was very very very very hatefully I hope I never have to go back there again l told him that I never wanted to see again , he said well I work at night I’ll be here like he was dareing me to come back Dr Shenol Raveen.MandersGO ELSEWHERE! This is the worst ER ever! Do not put yourself or your loved ones in the incompetent and condescending care of these doctors. The rest of the staff is equally just as rude, with the rare nurse who actually cares. Their equipment is old and the nurses had to run around looking for one’s that actually worked on several occasions and the place is grungy and dirty. Any tests done like ultrasounds are rushed through and therefore end up needing to be redone at an outpatient facility (if your insurance will even allow it). And if you’re lucky enough to see an actual doctor it’s for mere minutes and they treat you like trash and are of zero help in answering any questions or diagnostics. Literally the worst I have ever been treated by supposed medical professionals. We took my mother there after hurricane shutters fell on her and broke her sternum and collarbone. She was in shock and horrible shape. She wasn’t even triaged for over 3 hours! But we couldn’t move her. DO NOT GO HERE! You are literally gambling with your life.David WolfTo top off everything else that has happened here, a Dr. Korbaj came in to my room, stood over me and yelled at me saying that “it doesn’t matter how many times I call the Administrator, nothing you say matters.” You can call as much as you want, but nothing you say matters!”. I am about to file a report with security as his posture was aggressive and I felt extremely threatened by him in my weakened condition. Real Nice, that I have to deal with this type of treatment. I called security, they said nothing can or will be done to discipline Dr. Korbaj. I will file a formal complaint with every state and federal agency I can find though. BayCare needs some real help! There is some serious dysfunction in the workplace that is obviously acceptable.jelenalisten to your inner voice and do not bring your loved once to this hospital. Nurses are just evil and racist as well and xenophobic .If you have foreign accent they gonna just hate you when opening your mouth. My mother is in this hospital for past 3 month , she is neglect to the point that she lost her hair ..she almost lost her life to..Doctor and nurses will neglect you if you have some terminal illness .my mother have COPD and have no help at all.Only thing that this hospital care for is their own profit .this is evil place !! OMG and the nurse called Beth from CVICU just plane racist evil and xenophobic personMeghan Mazar⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedWhen we got there, there was no wait so they were able to help us immediately. Everyone we encountered from start to finish was very helpful and friendly!Brenton CampbellHit or miss. I asked Dr Jason Dukes in the er to run a simple test to rule out a condition that could explain my symptoms, and from everything i can find on google seems to better describe my sympotoms, and he became extremely angry and agressive and theatened there would be consequences if i exercised my right to have the tests done. By far the worst I’ve ever been treated by a medical professional. Will be getting a second oppinion and caliing Morgan & Morgan if he was even slighlty off with the diagnosis he made after a 30 second examination.gary BergeronWorse hospital in Pinellas County. ER is a NIGHTMARE. Waited 2 hours saw no one! Left Went to another hospital. Turns out my chest pains were serious. This hospital almost killed me DESPITE me pleading with the sarcastic desk staff for help.Amber EwersBeen twice for same abdominal pain. Run blood work, everything is “ok”…released with no answers or follow up. Shameful medical treatment.Michael Beesch⭐️⭐️Half of my negative experience was the result of some very shady dealings with Sunstar EMS, who, instead of taking me the six blocks to the closest hospital in my provider network and the one I ASKED to go to, took me to St. Anthony’s. That’s where things started going wrong. After describing my symptoms, (an extremely fast shutting of my airway and concurrent lack of ability to breath – chocking for air) the doctors did their predictable walk-throughs. One after the other. I was hooked up to the monitors and was told I was there for just that, monitoring, even though the incident has been hours before and I had recovered fully. So, nothing. The best part was the guesses as to what it could have been, which were all unanimous – allergic reaction. In spite of everything they said to the contrary, still, allergic reaction. It wasn’t. It was a Vocal Cord Disfunction, or spasm of the vocal cords. I did a follow-up with an ENT and she knew right off, backwards described what happened and diagnosed it within a minute. So all that, combined with the exorbitant charges to hook me up to “monitors,” and keep me for about an hour ($5600.00!!) and not be able to even make a guess that was even in the general direction of the correct diagnosis, would be bad enough, but then…..I got my portion of the bill. It was about $700. I started paying immediately. Not much, but I started paying. The incident happened in May and by October it was down to $174. So, it goes to EFFING COLLECTIONS!!! Maybe St. Anthony’s has saved someone’s life, but there is another side to “customer service,” and it isn’t found at St. Anthony’s… and now that I think about it, doesn’t it seem a bit ironic that Baycare uses the name of a Saint to pull off this BS?Elaine Hazel⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedWent for pre-op appointment today. Everyone we encountered was extremely helpful and professionalMaria Levesque⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedLove it!! I recommend this hospital anytime.Shasha MartinWas admitted overnight still didn’t find out what was wrong with me took all the scans left feeling lost n confused waste of my timeMatthew Parks⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedGreat staff who really helped me outKhani XiaThese doctors are a joke they’re sorry as hell the doctor pulled out her phone to look up a pill number like you’re a doctor you shouldn’t have to google a medication numberCarl Dyment⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Very concerned medical professionals.
