Worst service ever. For the staff at St. Cloud Hospital, it doesn’t matter if a patient has got a gunshot wound or a deep laceration or is having breathing difficulties. If you are a patient, you have to wait…that is it. And the wait time at any given point of time is a minimum of three hours; the whole time with the doctor would not cross 5 minutes (if it crosses five minutes, you are the luckiest soul in the whole world). I was seen by an RN who flushed the wound but did not think it was necessary to get an x-ray or stitch the wound. She tried to dress the wound in the gauze, and it just kept bleeding through. I had to knock some sense into her, and finally, she agreed to get an x-ray and then stitched the wound. The stitches were luckily done in a good manner, and it did not leave a scar behind.

However, I shudder thinking of this experience. I mean what if one has to undergo surgery and you have to guide the surgeons and the doctors throughout the surgery… Never coming back.

Great hospital. Almost 90% of the staff is kind, caring, and ready to help you. They are great, and one can be assured with their care. I am happy with the quality of care that I got here and do not wish to seek care elsewhere. The 10% is good but can be sometimes rude and snap at the drop of a hat.

I have seen many people crib about the ER wait time at St. Cloud in several reviews in various forums. To all those people I would say, please experience the ER in large city hospitals. Once you experience it firsthand, then you will stop cribbing about it. I think the problem is that the people visit this hospital thinking that they would be treated in the same manner as they would be in a clinic and when those hopes are dashed, they start seeing negative things in everything. If you visit a hospital, then expect to be treated like you would be in a hospital. I do that and have never been disappointed.

What was turning out to be a horrible experience turned out to be a pleasant one, thanks to the wonderful ER doctor. I had taken my six-month-old boy to the ER after he had a fever, which was waxing and waning. The ER doctor was not sure that he had a fever but then decided to run a few tests. Once the test results came back positive, he started the primary care and also informed the pediatric unit doctor. The moment the ER doctor felt my son was stabilized, he transferred his care to the pediatric unit, who continued the treatment protocol started by the ER doctor and also made some additions. The doctors and nurses at both the ER and the pediatric unit were great. Thanks to these wonderful people, my son is now much better. A big shout out and special thanks to the wonderful ER doctor. Even though he was not sure, he still had the magnanimity to order tests and scan, which helped in proper diagnosis. What if he had discharged us….a chill runs down my spine even when I think about it
