My experience at Saint Joseph's Hospital was the worst. My family was not kept well informed while I was intubated and heavily sedated. I got HAP while there, then a candida fungus from surgery, and infected with Staphylococcus. By the time the doctors there realized this I had sepsis, they re-intubated me and quickly transported me a LTC facility downtown! Never gave my family options or discussed the severity of my condition. And this all happened to days AFTER successful heart surgery! Can you imagine, I made it through that, was up the next day walking, and thought I was on the "road to recovery." Had I not been "fast tracked" to a lower care floor and/or transferred back up to CICU the morning my BP shot over 200 during my walk, my life would be much different than is now. The staff was terrible to my family, the doctors never spoke to them again (no one did) after they had me transferred out. There was no "family meeting", no communication with us at all. They just collect their money, made sure their codes match up to whatever they need to be to ensure they get paid for their "service"! It's disgraceful!
