feedback about The James B Haggin Memorial Hospital
Came in here unable to breathe, I've been sitting here for an hour and they haven't done a damn thing. I could sit at home and have the same experience. The upside is the respiratory specialist, he was the best.
Im here waiting to some one to come check my daugther i have 2 hours and not body come yet i can believe an hospital dont have a good assistence some one else can die here waithing for them thats sucks
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.
WHY WOULD YOU MAKE PEOPLE WAIT 3+ HOURS IN THE ER WITHOUT EVALUATING THEIR INJURIES BEFORE SITTING THEM IN A WAITING AREA
This is by far the worst hospital to go to. 2 hours in the waiting room and 5 hours and counting to get out. This is godly awful. If I could give them no stars, I would.
