I had a very bad experience after coming in with a serious injury that eventually led me to become crippled. I was in such severe pain that I would have taken my life. The assigned doctor did little and seemed to have a controlled with arrogant attitude. The staff was relegated to his leadership.
Granted this was on the weekend and they eventually determined that they were ill equipped to handle my condition, but the pain management was non-existent. I wound up in OKC where the primary practitioner went above and beyond with care from the moment I stepped in.
As a business leader I am sure there are many at Johnson Regional who truly do care.This experience for me was surreal.
My mother was a nursery nurse at this hospital for over 40 years..
ER is horrible service. Ran a bunch of tests without explaining what or why they are doing them. And then forgot I was still in the trauma room and still hooked up to the EKG.
I had the flu, but with my preexisting conditions of fibromyalgia and a very large hernia, my pain levels were through the roof so I was crying and instead of being compassionate, the nurse practitioner told me to calm down and be a big girl, people get the flu all the time...the audacity of people to just assume that I am just being a cry baby! I will never go back again!
My (4) star rating is based upon the attentive nature of the nursing staff only. Thank you ladies and gentlemen.
As a patient it is necessary to get options when there is a financial impact. The Doctor I worked with was too busy to give these details and short with me when I asked about other scenarios.
To all other patients at this hospital. ASK the questions! We were given no option but to take an ambulance to Little Rock. Thousands of dollars! When we said we would like to drive ourselves, they said "ok".
You would think they would give those options to avoid a ridiculous fee. Hey doc, I know you are good at what you do. But you might need to reel it in a bit and recall that we are human, not numbers or taking up space in a room. We would appreciate you taking a minute to be sincere and give advise and options.
