My wife went to this hospital after having dental surgery and having excruciating abdominal pain and throwing up for 1 day. We went to the er because it was a Friday and there was no way she could make it until Monday to see her pcp. These idiots billed insurance that it was non emergent and now we are paying a $500 bill. On top of the bill we have been paying for 6 months because we didn’t want to fight with the hospital, we just got one from the ER doctor, Dr. Samuel, wanting us to pay him $1247 just to him. He did nothing for my wife after spending 2 minutes with her!!! She spent the whole weekend in bed throwing up and in pain and still had to take off to go to her pcp Monday!!! I guess if he wanted to get paid she shouldn’t pass judgement on what’s emergent and non emergent. Obviously money is more important than patient care here and the “doctors” probably should have spent more time in school!
My 4 year old was having trouble breathing and her pediatrician was closed for the weekend so we ended up in the er. After waiting 5 hours we finally saw Alan Schumacher for about 3 minutes. He said she had a minor respiratory infection that would go away in a day or two and no medication was needed. After suffering through the weekend I got my daughter into her pediatricians office and it turns out she has pneumonia. Make the extra drive to Hot Springs this hospital and it's "doctors" are a joke.
This is being typed one-handed, so there may be errors. On July 25, 2017, I broke my arm and was taken by ambulance to this hospital. From the time I got there, to the time I left, I got best care you could posssibly get. Kay (admin clerk), was wonderful and even gave me a hug when I left! The ER staff, Dr. McLeod, Cody and Emily, RN's were great.I wish I could say more, thank you all for all you did for me. I would recommend this hospital very highly!!!! Thanks again
Ive never personally been to this hospital. But my baby sister just had her baby delivered there. And my sister's baby left arm was broken during delivery. Days after she had her baby she had to rush baby to the ER. Because the baby had red knots sticking out of that left arm and was not eating because of being in pain. Doctors at the ER are saying the baby may NEVER have use of that arm again.
Doctor/nurse were nice, however I was sent out the door without anticoagulation for a small PE. I was unable to get meds through pharmacy. Standard of care was not implemented and will be reported to Joint Commision.
