feedback about The James B Haggin Memorial Hospital
Our daughter fell and wouldnt use her arm. We didn't think it was broken but wanted a professional opinion, as she is 3. Drove to Ephraim in Harrodsburg only to leave shortly after, to go to the Danville ER. We walked in and weren't sure where to go or what to do. A lady asked if we needed "something"-obviously if we're at the ER at 9 pm we need SOMETHING! We explained the situation and she said we could try to ring the buzzer but "they are full, so wait a few minutes and if no one comes ring it again." She added she "didn't know where the doctor or one of the nurses were, but one nurse was working on charts." So we pressed the buzzer. One of two individuals in the waiting area said she had "severe chest pains and had been waiting 15 minutes." We waited a few more minutes. No one came to the door nor did we see anyone else moving around. We packed up and headed to the Danville ER-also serviced by Ephraim-and were immediately and promptly attended to with excellent care and service. When we left the Harrodsburg ER, two individuals who were standing by the road when we first arrived (one in white coat-assuming Dr. and one in scrubs-assuming nurse) were still in the same spot outside smoking. It's a shame we have a facility that has the capabilities to service the needs of a smaller community, yet seems unable to do, for whatever culmination of reasons.
There is only one other hospital that is this bad. I have been here for over an hour nothing has been done and my call light has been on for almost 30 minutes. The doctors and nurses are just sitting at the desk doing nothing. Every nurse that walks by ignores the light. I'll never come here again.
Very outdated building and equipment with rude doctors. The nurses are nice though.
Stay away from the ER unless you need Narcan or have a stomach bug. The nurse's are great... The Dr's on the other hand are completely useless!!!!
We are new to the area and to Kentucy. We have made two visits to the ER and both times were well cared for by both nurses and doctors.
