feedback about The James B Haggin Memorial Hospital
If I could rate zero stars, I would in a heartbeat. This place is a complete joke. They are constantly misdiagnosing people (which can be deadly!) and mistreating/ignoring patients. If you have the time you need to go to Danville. Everyone at this hospital needs their license taken away.
Had pain in my lower abdomen and I was attended to very quickly and treated with respect. I ended up having appendicitis and was transferred to Danville to have it removed. Everything went smoothly and everyone was very nice. I have been to this hospital previous times and sometimes I had to wait. I work in healthcare and I do not mind waiting 1,2,3 hours or more because I understand that real emergencies come first such as those coming in by ambulance. If you think it is life threatening then you need to come in the other door not the one you can walk through. Everyone needs to understand that they only staff 1-2 doctors and a limited amount of nurses in these small ERs. They have to deal with people from car wrecks, heart attacks, gun shot wounds first and get them stabilized when they are bleeding out all while people in the waiting room are cussing because they have to wait because they have a cough. Have a little grace on these folks people they are asked to do extraordinary things under extreme pressure. No I don’t work for haggin or have any family that does. I just have a better insight than most because of having worked in healthcare(UK, St. Joe, Georgetown). From my experience this is a very good little hospital and the people there are very kind. Harrodsburg is lucky to have this 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.
