Before you go to St. Joseph’s Hospital, you may want to know what the people who have already gone to this Tampa emergency room think.
Jessie Marie⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Most of the time when I bring my daughter here, the wait to get a room isn’t very long. This time, I already knew she would have a diagnosis of croup and what they would do to treat it since it’s been a regular occurrence of illness for her over the years due to the anatomy of her throat and the symptoms are pretty easily recognizable. They got us into a room pretty fast, I explained to the nurse that she had croup and needed the steroid treatment they usually provide. The doctor came in, heard her cough and issues breathing, agreed with my assessment and ordered the medicine. Shortly after that, the nurse returned with the steroid medication and her discharge paperwork in one trip so that we could get out of there quickly! The dr also ordered a piece of equipment for her so we just had to wait for respiratory therapy to bring it and we could leave. My daughter didn’t even have time to watch a full movie. We were in and out of there, from start (arriving at the hospital) to finish (waiting for and then leaving valet parking), in a total of 1 hour and 10 minutes. That’s pretty quick to get through triage, wait for a room, be seen by a doctor, treated, seen by respiratory therapy, given instruction on equipment use and discharged! They’re awesome with kids and I choose St. Joe’s every time when it comes to bringing my daughter to the hospital, ESPECIALLY if it’s serious enough to potentially warrant an overnight stay! In the unlikely event that your child has to be admitted, the family rooms are more than accommodating for a parent to stay comfortably. The television system allows patients to choose from a range movies in different categories (there’s something for everyone) or they can just watch regular television channels if they choose. When admitted, you can order meals through their television system which gives you control over everything down to how much and type of each condiment you want with each meal. They allow quite a bit of food to be ordered so your child can try a little bit of many things if they’re a picky eater OR if you’re trying to save money, you can just max out every category and usually get away with sharing each meal with your child instead of paying for them in the cafeteria. They also have awesome staff members that specifically go around to check in on your child daily, see how they’re feeling about their stay and offer them different activities and/or games to keep them occupied. Sometimes they come in to help distract or encourage your child during procedures too. The nurses are always excellent with kids and show tons of patience in dealing with them. No hospital admission is pleasant but St. Joe’s certainly makes it as easy and comfortable as they can. Definitely my number one choice for children’s needs.Tiffany Chassie⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedEvery time I have had to come to St. Joseph’s they have amazing service and really care about getting you well. From myself to my children the nurses are so helpful and caring. The doctors are amazing even when you can see how overwhelmed they are. I will choose it over any other hospital for the rest of our lives!!! Thank yo so much!Keri BrusaWish there was 0 stars…Sent my dad home without antibiotics and he had pneumonia. He ended up going to St Joes north where he was admitted to ICU and spent 10 days on life support in a medically induced coma. He is lucky to be alive.Randy Taylor⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedPersonally experienced the best medical care after an acute injury to my vertebrae and head. Great doctors and even greater nurses and techs. I have no regrets and great confidence in my care. Additionally, the pastoral care at this Franciscan facility was a great help to my well being after a 5 day inpatient stay. Thank you to the staff in ER, Observation on the 5th, and particularly the nurses on the 7th floor. You were all great!Ty BennionThis review is based on the ER reception desk, not the care/nurses/hospital itself. Girlfriend had pneumonia and couldn’t breath. She was grabbing the front desk and myself, gasping for air, hyperventilating, and the receptionist looked at us like we were at the DMV trying to renew our license – this at 5pm, 8/17/19. Additionally, she had the nerve to ask, “is she okay” while she’s nearly falling on the floor. Rather than helping us, she goes “you need to get a mask” and handed us the registration paperwork. Insane.A C⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedStaff and doctor we’re so helpful. I was greeted by the friendly nurse staff and treated amazingly and treated so quickly.Ashley NWorst baycare hospital!! After two days of tests they couldn’t find anything. Went to my boyfriend’s follow up with his pc and when the doctor reviewed everything he said they dropped the ball and began to explain what they didn’t tell us. The emergency room is unsanitary! Most of the employees working are absolutly rude and need new jobs! When the lady in the bed next to us left the sheets were changed and a new patient came in. There was NO sanitation done…yuck! Also the scheduling department is absolutly horrible.Andrea’s realityPlease avoid this ER at all cost. I am a 54 year old, who broke her ankle yesterday in 3 places including my fibula. I am in excruciating pain, but they discharged me with Motrin and ultram. I thought they were going to admit me since I wouldn’t have any way of getting around plus I didn’t know how to use crutches. Basically they didn’t care about my recovery, pain or how my ankle is fixedKyle Jones⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedA MATTER OF LIFE!!!!! THANK ST.JOSEPH HOSPITAL AND DOCTORS… YOU SAVED NOT ONLY ONE KID BUT WHOLE FAMILY AS WELL. I went to Tampa General Hospital emergency service at 01/12/2019 with my son (2 years old) He has had high fever for four days, no flue, no any more symptoms, just high fever.we tried Tylenol, Motrin but it didn’t work. Dr.solution: use both medicine (Tylenol and Motrin) every 3 hours and She send us back home. 2 days later; we went to St. Joseph’s Hospital emergency service with Same problem: just high fever. Dr.solution: we can not send you home, we need to find reasons for high fever. You need to stay here!!! LISTEN!!!!! YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!!! ST.JOSEPH HOSPITAL FOUND INFLAMMATION IN HIS BRAIN !!!! Next Day! If we went back to Tampa General Hospital,my baby would have suffered more and maybe … We are still in hospital, I cried everyday for my son. I’M STILL CRYING WHEN I WRITE THIS…nachiell de santis⭐️⭐️⭐️Not bad service, my respect for the hospital, but, Miss Patricia , in emergency department , who is in charge of taking the information to the patients, her attitude was very disagreeable, with me and with my wife, using correct words we felt humiliated before her answer, her way of treating us was not correct and We feel bad for her way of being , thanks to miss Patricia of the front desk in the emergency area on 06/28/19 , For made me feel bad ….Brandon ShefferThis place is a disgrace to the medical community. If you have any choice at all… avoid this place. Nothing but greedy disgusting bottom line driven care, treatment and billing practices.Michael HernandezThis is the first and last time going here, I took my fiancée to the ER because of severe pain in her back, throat, head and while going pee. She needed help walking due to feeling light headed and weak and when we arrived they told us that they didn’t have any wheel chairs to give, pushing forward she’s in her ER room and I ask the nurse for a second pillow and she told me that they don’t have any extra pillows to give in the ER but the nurse did end up grabbing a pillow from a different room and saying she will hopefully not get in trouble for doing so (I realize the shortage of pillows isn’t the nurses fault). Later on I advised the nurse that my fiancée had to go to the restroom so she disconnected her from all of the machines then she goes to restroom finishes and lays back down, I go out of the room looking for the nurse so she can reconnect everything but I don’t find her so we wait about 20 minutes and a doctor comes in to introduce himself I advise him about nothing being reconnected so he only reconnects the IV and leaves about another 10 min passes and she’s feeling discomfort in her chest so I reconnect the piece for her pulse and it’s at 120. Due to her pulse and her fever bouncing back between 100°- 102° they had her stay overnight in the ER observation room to be closely watched. She was still in severe pain and they still only continued to give her Tylenol even though she already stated that it was not helping at all with the pain. The first nurse that was assigned to her was Carolina and she was great very nice and attentive. They gave her a strong dose of medicine overnight and that helped her sleep from what she told me as visitors aren’t allowed past 9. The next day this all pretty much continued and since her fever spiked over night to 103 so they continued to watch her fever closely but her fever wasn’t checked for at least 3 hours prior to discharge and they forced her out even though she was still feeling just as bad as when she came in. Even with the discharge paperwork if my fiancée didn’t check they never gave us the prescription for her antibiotics. We honestly feel like nothing was done or accomplished The pictures I posted were from the bathroom faucet that was for the patientsDayana McphersonI would literally give this place no stars if I could. The service was awful! They put no care whatsoever for their patients! I went there for in ulcer on my eye which I told them I have a history of getting so usually the doctors would take a swab of my eye and take it to the lab to see exactly what’s wrong, they did not do that. The doctor just looked at my eye and prescribed me something meanwhile I was waiting for nearly 5 hours when their we was completely empty and they made me wait an extra 45 minutes for my prescription, I had to get up and ask what was going on with my prescription because I just saw the doctors and nurses joking around meanwhile my prescription was sitting there the whole time and they had me waiting there for nothing. The medicine he prescribed me did not work, it cruelly made my eye so much worse! Would never recommend this hospital to anyone! Awful, awful, awful!Rachel ZyskWe chose to go to St. Joe’s ER because of their Children’s Hospital. My young daughter needed two stitches in her lip. After providing our insurance information and checking in, we were taken to a room. TWO HOURS later, a woman from the billing department came to the room and screeched that we had not met our annual deductible of $2600. I was taken aback from her attitude – she acted like we had withheld information or did not intend to pay. I told her we had not met our deductible yet because it was early in the year, and asked for an estimate of the charges. She rolled her eyes and said we had to to pay the entire $2600 if we wanted our daughter to be treated. I asked her how two stitches could possibly total $2600. She said, “Your daughter sitting on that bed already costs $1000.” I said, “Okay, $1000 goes to overhead but what about the other $1600? How could some novocaine and two stitches total $1600?” I again asked her for an estimate. She became very impatient and said, “Are you going to pay your deductible and have your daughter treated, or not?” I paid it in full on the spot but I was outraged by her unprofessional and arguably unethical conduct. A dismissive and haughty doctor came in and spent 3 minutes looking at my daughter’s lip. He gave her a topical numbing gel and said a PA would be in shortly. Over an hour later, a PA came in and started to stitch my daughter’s lip even after she said it was not numb. As she sobbed, I asked him to stop and give her a shot of anesthesia. He impatiently gave her the shot, and put in two stitches. *He did do a good job with the stitches.* However, the bottom line is the PA spent no more than 20 minutes total with us. To summarize, of 4+ hours at St. Joe’s ER, only 20 minutes of it involved medical care, and cost at least $2600 (I am sure they have charged my insurance company even more). Being accosted by a billing clerk with lots of aggression but very little information was just the icing on the cake. Never. Again.Dani⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedMuch better over the years. wait time can be a bit grueling but with the great doctors and nurses it evened out. Amazing service and help. the doctors and nurses seemed genuinely concerned and wanted to do what they could to help. this is the kind of service i hope for when having to visit an emergency room ( not that I like visiting it at all but we all have those moments once in a while)Rae LleraWell, worst idea ever of comimg to this hospital. I am homeless and they seek shelter for me and found a place for me to go, and they had cab taking me over to DRUG HOUSE! Never come to this hospital again. Awful. Now I have to walk to walmart where my bike is. This is awful! Don’t ask for their help to seek shelter. You never know where you’re going.Dany Peguero⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedGreat friendly staff here. I wanna thank chairs and the rest of the staff for doing everything in their power to resolve our needs as fast and smooth as possible!Angela Weary-CrooksHorrific care. Physicians do not have the knowledge and expertise to work with children who have disabilities and they are dismissive to parents. They don’t care about their patients.Nicole Hughes⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedFast, clean, responsive to the care and treatment.DAVID YSIDRO⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedGreat service and care.
