Absolutely worthless! My wife has been here twice in the last month for stage two hypertension, and now a hypertensive crisis and they've done LITERALLY NOTHING FOR HER! their idea of helping her is to blow her veins out until she cries and has lasting pain and tell her to do what she'd been trying to do all while never actually treating the problem. IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR LOVED ONES DO. NOT. TAKE. THEM. HERE! Would give 0/5 but this review won't allow me to.
A third-world medical facility in first-rate taxpayer paid facilities. My dad is dead in large part because of this hospital. Dad was misdiagnosed, forced into surgery, given extra blood pressure meds, dropped by the nurses, put on diuretics when they thought he had gained 40 pounds and needed my brother to tell them to add the bed extension, and so on. Only the KY malpractice laws which heavily favor the hospitals are keeping this place open. If you need a checkup, fine. If there is anything complicated, go anyplace else if you want you or your loved one to survive.
A while back I went here just to sit in a room for three hours, also fell asleep. Had to push the button multiple times to get someone in there to see when I'd be seen and it would probably be another 3 hours which is ridiculous. A bit later I had to push it again so I could tell them I'm leaving. All they did was draw blood and then as I left they wanted a payment of a couple hundred which I didn't have at the time especially for not doing a damn thing. Then I get a bill in the mail for their "service" of somewhere in the 800s.
Another thing is my girlfriend having our baby boy. It was a very stressful, invasive several days. The nurses were so intruding in her privacy and they viewed me as some untrustworthy guy who takes people's prescriptions? They kept asking her very personal questions about her medication and when she didn't feel comfortable answering they would reword the question and ask again. When we got the okay to leave from the actual doctor, the nurses held us in there even longer saying they had one more "test" to do on our baby boy. Which is ridiculous. They also tried to keep him longer due to him being stressed because of how they were handling him and all of the poking and prodding. We eventually got a new nurse who was understanding and my girlfriend could actually talk to. All in all some of the nurses were awful and very intrusive in our privacy.
I know this is long, but this hospital needs some work especially with the nurses they hire.
2/3 times ive been here for either myself or others the doctors were so rude. No sympathy or care for their patients, slowest emergency department I have ever been to. You wait in the waiting room for at least 20 minutest to an hour, we waited for 25 minutes almost when I had kidney stones and it was 6 in the morning, NO other people waiting to be seen and when I got back there, bays were clean and empty.
Dont go here if you can help it, the staff is slow and rude, brushes your concerns away or doesnt want to look into the reason you are there.
Go to a different hospital.
Very pleased with nurses, staff, and my OBGYN. Very grateful
