Of the three hospitals I have been in, in the Fresno/Clovis area, St. Agnes was the worst by far.

While there, I could never get any answers on anything until I talked to my doctor. They did not seem to care if I was in excruciating pain. If I needed a nurse, the wait was always long and often had to call numerous times before getting someone. At night, the constant noise was terrible. Hearing those at the nurses station laughing, telling jokes, etc., banging cupboard or closet doors, etc. kept me from ever being able to sleep at night even after being given sleep medication.

Without exception, I have always had additional problems/illness after coming home from there.

St. Agnes Hospital needs a lot of improvement in patient care.
