Get used to it.We aint seen nothing yet.Everything is being cut in regard to healthcare and everything else.Less workers mean less care and the care we will get wont be half of what we get now.Most people are going to be in a state of shock once it dawns on them just how bad things are going to get by next year.Best be preparing to take care of your family on your own with little to no income.
Even worse, most of the Health care bill goes into affect in 2016.
Trust me, I have read the law. We are in for some terrible times if this law is not throw out. We would be much better off if they reformed insurance companies and tort practices.

Anywhere that employees as many as St Joes does you will find some ppl cheating. Its just the nature of the beast. You work side by side with ppl and you get close, then affairs happen. I am not saying everyone cheats but it does happen. Its a number game. The more employees a place has the more that will cheat.

In terms of volume,(Not to be confused with quality or necessity of procedures) St. Josephs, located in a town with only 6,000 residents, performed over 4,000 cardiac procedures, making it one of the top 50 in the nation. Most of these are now the subject of a class action and multiple of other legal procedures currently filed in Laurel Circuit court. They were in court two weeks ago to force them to produce documents involving those cases.

I just recently had a very bad experience in the labor and delievery unit. This isn't anything worth suing over but it did make me think strongly enough to decide I will not have my child in this hospital. No drugs were involved and believe me I do not draw a check and I have my own insurance. It was just simply a nurse who did not have a clue to what she was doing. Her mistake was corrected by another nurse on the floor in no time at all. Just made me think from what this lady done to me, she could do to a newborn. Mistakes do happen but she was well aware of her mistake. And that is how people die. I don't know anything about the cardio unit or doctors but o would not suggest having a baby there.

That's great, but are you absolutely sure that you REALLY needed the bypass? That's what the lawsuits are about - doing heart procedures on patients that don't need them.

St Joseph London is committed to excellence, the patient and family are kept comfortable in a state of the art facility with all private rooms large private bath and shower and a comfortable cot for family to rest I love the private rooms and space provided at this hospital much nicer than any other

I had a heart cath at st joes a couple years ago the doctor did nothing the first time said he would have to go back in. Two weeks later I had a stent. Why did they not do it the first time. Milking insurance. Should I join this suit. Let me know your opinion. Prior to this I had 5 by passes in lexington.

I have been there 3 times in 5 months on the second floor For heart related issues I was treated with great care up most respect The longest I ever had to wait on a nurse's call was a couple minutes The doctor's there are the best I wouldn't give St. Joe's up for any hospital they are number one in my book an I can say I m very very picky an being in the health care field I know the ends an outs I m so sorry if you have had bad experience with the hospital but I believe they are number one in my book ...
