I had been having bad pain in my tooth. I assumed the dental infection was back and that it may be responsible for the following. On 12.01.18 I had Diarrhea and the next day decided to treat it with pepto. It continued no matter what I ate it was pure water. That ended 12.06.18. A few days go by and I am okay. Then 12.08.18 that night my throat was sore. Then I started having a runny nose a bit of a cough, chest burn and pain. I gargled with salt water and used a cough drop.(my nose outside skin is pealing from the amount of time I have been blowing it) I knew I needed and antibiotic. I woke up my throat extremely sore and decided to go in on 12.13.18 to the er. When I went I spoke with the lady and informed her that I had a bad dental infection and proceeded to tell her my symptoms she then ask what my main complaint was so I told her that it is a dental infection gone bad. She asked about insurance and I informed her that I had none (I cannot afford the out of pocket expenses nor the amount they would want up front) She asked again and I said I do not have any she stated any at all and I said nope I cannot afford it. She then informed me about the $50.00 copay and I told my boyfriend I might as well goto Lubbock because I cannot afford that. She said its okay and just put the reason why you cannot pay on there. I get called back into the room and I inform two nurses about what is going on they hook me up to take my blood pressure and my oxygen level and check my throat. All of that takes place during this. I was informed by one of the nurses that if the dr determines this is a clinical visit they will have to have me go there. I told the nurse every clinic wants there money upfront which I cannot do. At that point the other nurse said well how do you plan to pay for an antibiotic? To which I stated I will have to find away wont I. (Last time I had a dental infection the cost of the antibiotic was $4. and some change bear in mind the last infection did not make me sick) So do the math 4. and some change is easier to afford than $50. They asked if my boyfriend could help and I stated no he was unemployed. I told them my expenses (which was none of there business but I did so anyway . I then told them so I should let this get worse to the point of being an er visit before you can help me. (If it would have been ammonia they would have a lawsuit of their hands) Bear in mind they knew I was unsure if the dental infection was causing me to be sick and the nurse who looked at my throat never told me what it looked like. So if it does get worse they and I can find a lawyer they are facing a lawsuit. Then the Dr. and 4 or people came in and he stated he was not a dentist (No but you do no about colds ammonia and other infections right? otherwise how are you a dr. and why has your licence not been suspended?) that they were going to have me go to the clinic and I told him I have no money. To which he stated about the indigent program. I ask the Dr, does it go off of the federal min wage the guy had no idea and he was referring some to a program that he does not even know about (The guy is an idiot.) I told him that the Lubbock community clinic does and because of that I have to pay full price which I cannot afford to do. He did not listen he just said we will take care of you and get you to the clinic. They kept talking about the er being more expensive. Er jack up the cost of everything they know this and since I was already back there I was going to be sent a bill anyway so moving me does not make any sense because then I would have faced an er bill (which they will still send) and a bill because he came in and saw me (a bill which they will still send) and the a clinical bill on top of that (Which I refused.) I ended up double checking with UMC er business over the phone to see if I would be treated like this ahead of time and was told they would see me and they are the county hospital and they will not turn anyone away. So I plan to go there and see what is going on.
Brownfield has been home to me and my family since 1924. My Grandfather was a Terry County Pioneer doctor. So..I can remember when our closest hospital was in Lubbock....over a dirt road.
Back then doctors made house calls. Often traveling many miles. As a child, I remember going with my Granddad and Grandmother to visit patients in New Mexico.
Today I consider myself fortunate to have Brownfield Regional Medical Hospital and Clinic only five miles from me.
In my lifetime I have lived other places and been in other hospitals . I have yet to find what we have here in our own hospital.
I have never received better care or as good, as I have had here at Brownfield Regional. I can not say enough commending the Nursing Staff who cared for me. They are all super professional, super compassionate a fantastic group of men and women....who made me feel special and safe, as I'm sure they did all their patients.
We are have a hospital to be proud of. One that is well equipped with well trained people in charge .
My family and I have been fortunate to have Dr Dennis Tedford, in the clinic,for our doctor for almost twenty five years. I would imagine I am his oldest patient and He has taken good care of five generations of my family.
So I Give Brownfield Regional Medical five stars. Five stars to all who made it what it is today. A lot of years and a lot of hard work by a lot of people. Thank you!
I have delivered all of my babies at this hospital over the last 12 years. The labor and delivery are the best nurses always patient and kind even when they are tired. Tedford and the nurses have always treated us very kind.
Glad to know that we have at least two great nurse's working in the E.R. Thank you LINDA & TERRY. Great! Great! Job y'all do!!👍👍
