Ok...good. Thanks for the info. I have heard alot of rumors and just wondering if any of them were true. I sure hope not but there is alot of activity going on over there or at least that's what I'm hearing. If there is...then let those heads roll and keep this hospital going in the right direction.

Nope...they would lead anyone to believe just the opposite. Guess we are just gonna have to wait and see!! I don't put nothing past them though.

I know someone who worked for one of the heart dr's his wife used to say "more test,more test,"at least I was told this... just to add to her husbands profits, dirty putting people through the procedures for the sake of $$, but it is the truth. Also,scripts were written for patients never seen by dr....KDMC was made aware and blew it off. Would it be medicaid fraud if scripts were written for patients with no charts,never seen by dr,then script billed to medicaid. Probably but KDMC has no interest in opening up more dirt on themselves. I would rather die on my way to Cabell or St Marys than to be hauled to KDMC.

You probably are right about all of this...I will say it again. If any of this is true, then the authorities should get those people out of here and get this hospital back on the right track.

Well i'm sure if anything illegal is going on there, that ol freddie will pay someone off to keep kdmc's good name out of the mud.

I know they order double sets of blood cultures on almost all patients there. These cost somewhere along the lines of $1,200 a set. The hospital orders excessive lab work to make extra dough. The sad part is some of the phlebotomists will draw for one set of cultures, use the blood in both and the hospital charges you for the two sets.

They need to investigate the ER. They seem more interested in labeling you a drug addict instead of treating you. They tried to say my daughter was on meth. After throwing a fit before they would agree to a second test that came back negative they discharged her with out treating her for the reason she was there. A year later and another episode and a trip to Bellefonte we finally have a diagnosis and a way to treat her. I have heard 3 other people say this has happened to them.

how right you are. kdmc is under investigation right now for medicare/ medicaid fraud concerning the heart program. they do more unnecessary heart caths than any other hospital in the u.s. fred jackson is the one that makes the doctors do it. can't wait til they get arrested.

Fred Jackson thought he was invincible. he is finding out how wrong he is. they have put thousands of lives in jeopard by doing thousands of unnecessary heart procedures and fraudulently billing millions of dollars for them. The Board of directors are also being investigated because they were all aware of it and sanctioned it.

this is not bs. there are fbi agents and investigators that have already been there for 2 weeks investigating fraud and abuse. the attorneys are part of the coverup. freddie will probably make an announcement lying about what is going on, buy all you have to do is call fbi in covington to find out the truth. freddie can't pay off the feds like he does everything else.

FREDDIE CAN'T PAY OFF THE FEDS. HE'S IN DEEP DO DO. I AM ANXIOUS TO SEE HOW HE WILL PUT A POSITIVE SPIN ON THE INVESTIGATION.

I heard that they are cross referencing names from active investigations with names in medical records.
