Rude!! Just rude staff!! Whenever I checked into the ER the old lady behind the desk was just rude to me. The next 3 people she checked in behind me she was “please” and “thank you”. I might be young but that’s not an excuse for you to judge me and what’s going on with my health. You don’t know me. Every time I tried to call to get information faxed to another doctor the people who answered the phone was rude. I think the only nice person that works there is the doctors!! And even they are a hit or miss sometimes. (a week ago)

91 year old Uncle admitted to ICU on a Saturday evening. He broke his hip and suffered a heart attack. He was too unstable for surgery to repair broken hip and was put on a bipap machine. Doctor recommended Hospice or nursing home on Monday. Arrangements were made for Hospice Care. He was showing signs of dying; eyes fixated, guppy breathing, mottling, low vitals on Tuesday. Surgeon commented he couldn’t find a pulse, but machine indicated heart beat. Doctors and staff did not inform family ventilation could be stopped after telling us his condition was dire and he needed “comfort care” as there was nothing more they could do for him. They proceeded with dismissal to Hospice for transport by EMS with a nurse expressing concern due to Uncle being on bipap machine and changed over to venti mask. Breathing was only sustained by bipap machine which was discontinued upon transport. He had already passed. It seems hospital didn’t want to “admit” or take responsibility for his body and allowed family to believe he could be transported to Hospice Care. He was pronounced dead upon arrival to Hospice Care, an unnecessary transport and additional anguish to family. EMS team and Coroner were very sensitive and empathetic. They handled him with the utmost care and respect as they transported our Uncle to the funeral home. Their sensitivity during our time of loss is appreciated. (in the last week)

I had to spend 4 days in this hospital the e.r took for ever to tell me anything after a 6 hour wait on everything I was admitted after another 4 hours I got to my room,the nursing staff on the 6 floor ignored me and took hours past my time to get my pain meds then they were getting snippy with me like I enterupted them or stoped them from doing something it took them 14 hours for a nicotine patch on top of that when I told them I needed something to eat they brought me jello and no spoon when I was released from the hospital one nurse told my husband to please get me out of there she was tired of dealing with me I had to change my own bed and give myself a sponge bath they gave me a bunch of papers about my release but it didn't tell me when I could eat solid food or drive and what is bad is they are shutting down all the other hospitals down so we will have nowhere else to go besides a crappy hospital if I could I would go anywhere besides there (3 weeks ago)

My mom was brought here yesterday and admitted to ER at 7 am and the doctor agreed that it is necessary for her to be transferred to St. Louis. Mom has been in both Barnes and Mercy. Barnes claims their ICU is full so last night I talked with Mercy. They called this morning that they are ready to accept her but now the nurse, Mark, doesn't seem to want to contact the doctor to get the transfer done...this is so frustrating!!!!!! (5 months ago)

Need to get people in the hospital in and out fast like there advertised er extra that a joke and false ad just saying (2 weeks ago)
