My husband just had hip surgery and his discharge was handled very poorly. He was not given the home care therapist info before leaving the hospital and it seems that the home care company was not contacted until I called to ask what was happening. One story I got was that the social worker was off on the day my husband was discharged. Another was that the company dropped the ball. it was another day before All About Home Care called us to tell us they were too busy to see us for another day. When I asked to change companies, they told me that that would take even longer and would not be a good choice. It is not nice to be shoved out the door and forgotten! Also, they didn't get his diabetes medicine in so we had to bring our own. Then they forgot to return it when he left!

Dirty rooms and floors, low class nursing people with bad attitude. A nurse left me second day after operation in the bathroom by myself and left although had a sign "risk of fall". Very bad experience for me and bad reputation for the hospital. Will never return there for sure,

I had my daughter at St. Agnes and was very delighted that she would be giving birth to her child there... But her experience there was less then happy and perfect...the Dr. only came in 1 time during her labor..then returned after she was dilating 10...prior to that when waiting I only seen the nurse come in and ask her if she needed anything 2 times before she started the pushing process...we had to search for them when she needed something...or had a concern...after giving birth instead of letting her rest.. they came in around midnight and gathered her and her things to move her to another wing...then she had stated several times she would be breast feeding...and they never offered to give her breast pump incase she needed to feed her baby when they took him for testing and observation......instead they were feeding him regular formula...then when the nurse from breastfeeding asked her in reference to how her first breastfeeding went my daughtered replied they haven't giving me the opportunity yet and that the nurse fed him formula and said it was ok to do so... my daughter expressed her concern that it may interefere with the introduction of her breast milk to her child...and the breastfeeding nurse agreed and was equally upset with the nursing staff...the breastfeeding nurse went to question the staff and the nurse who fed my daughters son lied and said my daughter authorized it...which when my daughter realized the staff blamed her she was upset and couldn't understand why this would happen and secondly why lie about it...my daughter has taken this pregnancy and delivery very seriously and was anticipating a happy and enjoyable experience but the nurses and hospital staff made that less then perfect...due to such a non caring and very ignorantly rude staff of nurses...she plans on having more babies in the future and has expressed she will never give birth there again...AND I TOTALLY AGREE

We had our second baby at St. Agnes. The doctors were incredible but they ignored us and had us waiting for 6 hours before they started the induction. The worse part is after having the baby. The nursery had nurses that were very rude. I felt like they felt like I was wasting their time by asking them why they were taking my baby. The other hospital we delivered at let us keep the baby in our room and did everything in the room while talking to us. St. Agnes kept taking our baby like 7-10 times in a two day span for 2-3 hours at a time. They were just very condescending. Not a pleasant experience.
