feedback about Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Stephenvill
If you go to college in Stephenville and something happens go to any other hospital but here. There are two cases where the treatment from the nurses and doctor were horrible, both happening my Freshman year in 2017/2018. The worst of them being the First incident which occurred around November/December of 2017. I went into the ER having a sharp pain in my abdomen, and barely being able to stand. I was rushed in by a close friend around midnight, filled out paperwork, sat down and instantly couldn’t see straight, and couldn’t get comfortable. My friend told the front desk that we needed a room and needed to be seen immediately. Almost an hour and a half later we were able to get a room, me being in more pain than when I walked in. An hour goes by, it’s now almost 3:00 am, and we haven’t seen or heard from a nurse. My friend has to go outside and get someone to come in and get me a blanket and ask when we would be seen. “The doctor is very busy tonight he’ll be here when he’s done seeing the other patients.” 20 minutes go by he comes in and informs me about the 3 test that we’d have to do in order to see what’s wrong with me. So 3 hours later, the doctor is not able to figure out what’s wrong with me. He recommends the best solution of being transferred to Fort Worth, over an hour and a half away, in a ambulance. I tell him that’s not an option because I don’t have the money. He then proceeds to tell me that I would have to make an decision of being transferred to a better Emergency Room, or stay a couple days in order for them to run more tests. I decided to stay a 2 days, which was not the best idea. The nurses and doctor himself were standing outside of my room eating, laughing, and having a good time, before putting my papers in to get me a room upstairs. It’s almost 8 in the morning before I get into a room, no sleep, 3 friends were nice enough to take turns being with me, because hospitals alone are not fun. I finally get to my room, get about 30 minutes of sleep before being woken up to be poked by needles. STILL NOT KNOWING WHATS WRING WITH ME. The pain is fluctuating at this point going from a 9 to a 4 and back up and down. Long story short I cut my stay short, still not knowing what was wrong because after a long night of tests and being poked by needles I was done, and took my chances, risking my own life just to be out and away from that hospital and the bad, unprofessional, care of the staff there! Only to be back there for a completely different reason in the weeks following, and the care was just as bad! Don’t go here!
This is a HORRIBLE place to have a baby...
They wouldn’t give me an epidural till the last minute, I was already at a 7!! I had to have an emergency c section unfortunately.. with things already not going as planned it gets even worse. I’m very claustrophobic and had to have an oxygen mask on me, I asked if I could hold it off my face just a little bit so I wasn’t freaking out as bad. The lady told me I could but yet kept yelling at me about it. I was waiting for my husband to come in the room and I asked what seemed a thousand times for him to please be let into the room, I was scared, nervous, and having a panic attack. I never once saw him. When they started cutting into me my husband said he was standing at the door waiting to be let in, but they didn’t let him because I started screaming .... screaming because I felt every single cut they were making to my body. I begged them to stop cutting, I screamed and cried I could fill everything they were doing. They didn’t stop... they lady who had given my epidural ( which by the way put it in completely wrong)( it never worked, and she could have done serious damage) she told the dr to continue cutting that she would handle me. Before I knew it she had a gas mask forcing it down on my face with all her body weight on me.. I was crying and my heart rate went sky high. She put me under and soon after my baby began to have problems as well.. 1 hour and 45 min later I woke up. I woke up to a bruised face, a bruised body, and a hungry baby that had been crying for so long because of these people... it was the worst experience ever, and it was my FIRST BABY, and MY FIRST experience .. I am traumatized, and I’m scared to ever have a baby again because of these people. Not only have they scared me, but they took the first birth experience of my precious baby boy away from my husband and I.. none of us saw him being born.. and that, will forever be heartbreaking and is just completely wrong.. so please to any one looking to having a baby here. Don’t!! Don’t go through anything I had to!
I worked at THR Cleburne and a paramedic. I am very familiar with most THR facilities
Took my father to the ER early this morning and this, by far, was THE MOST unpleasant visit to a hospital - EVER!! If you can, take your family elsewhere -where they care!I reside about 2 hours away from my father and received the call approximately at 2am while at work. I rushed down and made it in a little over an hour and took him straight to Texas Health in Stephenville. From check-in to check-out let me tell you, it was ridiculous. The nurse that was there when we checked in was rude. There is a difference between trying to ensure your patient can hear you and talking to them like they are stupid. My father was a bit disoriented. I try not to interject to lessen the confusion especially in these types of settings, however, when the nurse turned around because he didn't quite understand and began yelling and changing her speech pattern as though she was speaking to a 2yo child. After explaining his discomforts and that he has been in tremendous pain, her reply as though to downplay the excruciating pain he was experiencing. This was the beginning of HELL! The attending physician was an older female who was gentle and did not need to yell to get the message across or a response, etc. After this female doctor's initial visit to gather more about his pain, immediate pain and fever medication was given as well as the tests ordered and done. As I exited the room, the nurse from hell was in her little box across the room giggling with several others and a rent-a-cop-all who turned their focus and smirks on me as I was walking out. I really could care less but I mention this because, I wonder how people who don't stand up for themselves feel around an ignorant bunch as you? While you may not have been laughing about my father (or me), I highly doubt that, how are you okay with treating people like this? And are you so smart that you think you are dealing with fools? OR is this because I wasn't the right skin shade? In a few hours the shift changed and we got a fresh staff from hell except this time -- the doctor was the ringleader and seems to have a degree in sarcasm as well. Dr Dempsey didn't try to explain any of the test results other than "Everything looks good" - which they ABSOLUTELY ARE NOT. Staff in the morning were busy chatting it up, eating breakfast, reading magazines and the likes. From my initial encounter with this doctor, where I asked "Where is his pneumonia at right now?" and was given a reply with a tone and hand gestures to show like we were 3 again that "it's in his chest" with a circular movement. No kidding - I thought pneumonia was in his foot. I could not comprehend the necessity for such treatment. I understand dealing with irate citizens - but we were no where close to that. UNTIL NOW! I am not a doctor, but as they say -- this ain't our first rodeo. The level of professionalism was, "OFF THE CHARTS" -- and not in a good way. It is non-existent. Your entire staff to include the cocky receptionist exhibited very unprofessional, rude and uncaring traits it is not just disappointing BUT DISGUSTING! I don't know if that's just how it is, but we have been to Texas Health in FTW -- and this is nothing near the level of courtesy and care received there. Not only was the care horrible, Dr. Dempsey could not even afford his patient a moment to explain the findings of the test results, preventative or continuing care other than brushing my father off and telling him his primary doctor will receive all the results and can explain it further. Every single time I have accompanied my father to the ER -- doctors have, as a common sense type courtesy, ensured that I was present as results were explained & necessary care forward. Not this doctor - he walked in & I had to run to the room when I saw him enter which took all of 10 seconds -- within the minute he walked out. 6 HOURS of triage and tests and a measly minute of explanation. Their attitude with my elderly father was take the meds and go die. This is not ending here. Go ahead and reply with your please contact me -- trust me, somebody will.
Everyone was very courteous and professional. Will have my next eye surgery with them.
