Just was in the ER, I dropped a tree limb on my head, what a nice, helpful, and professional bunch of people. Keith, I believe he's the ER director, was very nice and took a quick look at me when I first came in. . Katie, Roberta and Chase all took good care of me. Mitchell was just dropping off supplies, but chatted me up and kept me smiling. Dr Jaskowiak got to stick me with needles and put staples in my head, other than that he has a great bedside manner. Thanks for making the trip quick and easy. Even the young lady who admitted me and the guy who took me to my bed in the ER, and the young girl who took my billing information were all very pleasant, thoughtful, and easy to deal with. It was a good experience, considering.
Awful emergency room service – I have been to the St. John's emergency room in Tulsa probably 3 times in the last 5 years or so. The waiting time for emergency service is unbelievable, to say the least. Everytime that I have went, the wait time gets longer and longer. This last time I had been sick for some time and I passed out at Walgreens when I went to get get my prescriptions filled. An ambulance was called and they took me to St. John's emergency room. We arrived at approximately 4:30 p.m. I still hadn't been seen by a Dr. or nurse at 9:30 p.m. So I told them to take the I.V. out of my arm that the ambulance service had put in my arm and I left. I spent all of that time there for nothing. There were other sick people that had been waiting for many hours and some of them left also. Something needs to be done about the way that they let sick people wait for hours and hours. People come to the emergency room because they need immediate help. I will not ever go to St. John's emergency room again. And I advise everybody not to go there if you need immediate help. You have to be dead, almost dead, or dying before you can be seen within a appropriate amount of time.
I almost died when I had my baby at St. John !! – I gave birth to my son at St. John. While in Labor & Delivery, a nurse drew up a cardiac medication, which was given to me by mistake. I had a respiratory arrest and died. I had to be resuscitated, and my baby was taken by C-Section, and born dead. He had to be resuscitated too, and then admitted to NICU for 5 days. I was an intensive care nurse at St. John when this happened. They lied to me about what they did, and said that my "epidural went up on me". I notified everyone I could, including Sister Theresa, the CEO of St. John, and nothing was ever done. Two years after my son was born, I was back at St. John for a breast biopsy. At that time, I was finally told the REAL story of what happened. The anesthologist told me there was a medication error made. I asked, and asked and asked what happened the day my baby was born, and they lied, and lied and lied. The hospital lied, my doctor lied, the NICU lied.... and they all knew the truth. There was nothing in my medical records or in my baby's medical records that indicated what had happened. When my son was about 4, I was talking to a labor and delivery nurse who worked at St. John. I met her at a soccar game. She was actaully there the day I was given epinephrine by mistake. She told me that the whole thing was hush, hush. What a mess. I am still traumatized years after the event.
