I recently took my9 yr old daughter to the ER in Blairsville. I thought she had broke her wrist and her thumb. We waited nearly 2 1/2 hrs when a woman came in with a possible broke leg and because she knew the nurses by first name and they all knew her they took her straight back into a room. I became very irritated because my 9 yr old was sitting there crying in pain and the lady that came in was laughing and cutting up with her family!!! I could have understood if her bone was protruding through her leg but she wasn't in any worse shape than my daughter. I left Union General and took my daughter to Chatuge Regional in Hiawassee where she was taken care of immediatly. The doctor was very upset because they had let her wait for so long without x-raying her. One of the nurses there told me she gets a lot of complaints about Union General Hospital!!! I think something needs to be done about the BS that goes on there. I have lived here all my life and this has always been the worst hospital. I understand that if it was a serious emergency that went ahead of us was fine because there was 3 people seen ahead of us that had more serious problems but in the case of you knowing someone better than the other was no excuse!!

Oh and something, because I left the hospital they called Defax on me. I took her straight to a different hospital so I don't believe I was in the wrong by leaving. That's a pretty low blow!!! I was trying to do what was best for my child! Ain't that what we are suppose to do for our children?

omg!! they called dfax cause you left?!?! that IS low!! i understand the gowders are in charge of the hospital now... maybe someone shoul talk to david personally cause i dont think he would have let this happen, had he known there was a child with a broken bone...but then of course, david may not have been on call that day... when you left did you let them know that you were taking her elsewhere?? and also, what did dfax do?? sorry all that happened to you.
Please

UGH is known for their partiality. Even the Administation is corrupt. She makes sure her family is took care of whether any bills are paid or not. But puts leins on others land and property and is the first to stand on the corner to get what is sold off. We need to make sure others find this out so it can go to sources other than just 'A gowder' because a "gowder' isn't going to be a do anything. And did you know that UGH will decline tests that are life or death if you don't pay? This hospital isn't privately owned...So tell me how can they do that? It is funded with govt and other benefits. But will decline someone who can't pay. In todays times hardly anyone with insurance can pay anything up front. Especially half of a medical test that costs 600 dollars and they are wanting 300 dollars up front. But that's ok...Let 'em have a heart attack and qualify for Medicare Disability...Then the money will come in! GOOD GRIEF! WARPED SYSTEM!
NO TO UGH

I go to Fannin, my husband was so sick one time, he dehydrated on me. He was disorentated and delerious, I was freaking out. He was just laying in the hospital floor. Nobody was in the waiting room but us, when we got back 2 hours later, nobody was back there either. They finally got an IV started. The D/C him while I went to get the car, the wheeled him out left him there, when I go to him he was sitting in a wheelchair throwing up left unattended. NEVER WENT BACK!

UGH hospital is a terrible hospital!
Went to the ER with a broken foot. The dr on call could not tell if my foot was fractured or not.Was able to get in to see an orthopedic dr the next day & my foot was fractured.!
And this hospital is bad about playing favorites.. if you are someone they know,they will take you ahead of everybody else.
Someone needs to buy out this hospital..new admin,drs,etc.

Union General wanted Hiawassee to call Defax on me and they wouldn't because they said I did the right thing by leaving with her and bringing her to Hiawassee. I did tell UGH that I was taking my child else where and I had to sign a peice of paper stating why I was leaving with her. Defax dismissed it because Hiawassee told them there wasn't a problem and that I had done the most responsible thing. This is like the third time we have been in this same situation with UGH. I will never go there for anything else!!!! I wouldn't even take my worse enemy there. I contacted the Rebecca Dyer at the hospital and she told me that she was very sorry for any inconvience and asked if I wanted to bring my child back up there and I let her know real quick that I was done on my way to Hiawassee and that I was not happy!! They all got an ear full from me and my mother when defax was called in. I could understand defaz being called in if I had waited two or three days before taking her or not have took her some place else but not in the case that did happen.

UGH bought Chatuge Regional in 1997/98. All they wanted was the nursing home. They turned to hospital into a clearing house.. ER, lab and Xray. they either patch you up or ship you off. UGH is owned by the Gowders and run by Becky Dyer AKA Hitler - meanest woman in Union County.She Was busted a few years back for drawing TWO full time salaries - one from the hospital and one from the Nursing Home. Broomsticks must be expensive.
WOW

Well now that I know your feelings about the hospital what about any doctors I should avoid? Sometimes that's just as important also.
good treatment at UGH

My husband was a patient at UGH several times and received very good treatment. At Fannin, the treatment was terrible.

I was treated at the ER and also received very good care. I also had to take a friend there for what turned out to be a bad sprain, and she received good care. I have no complaints about UGH.

A broken leg can be a life threatening injury, even if the person that has it does not realize how bad it is... a broken thumb and wrist is not life threatening.

For the record most of ya'll on here really need to grow up. What's up with all the gossip? Also, I know Becky Dyer and "The Gowders" personally! My mother worked at UGH for years and several other family members work there still. Also my uncle is a PA in the ER. So therefore, with all of the connections I have I still have to wait my turn if I need to be seen in the ER or have Xray's. Hello people think, there are only so many rooms in the ER so generally they can't see to your needs if there is no room for you or your family member to be seen. So that is why there is a waiting room. Just chill. Why can't people just get along? Seems like people are out to give people with obviously more education and more authority bad names in this town for 1. They are more than likely jealous, 2. They like to gossip, and 3. People just don't know when to shut their mouths.

Wow we are impressed! You know Becky Dyer and the Gowders. I guess you know how Gowder got shot some years ago don't you? Yea he was working in his office on a Sunday night and this guy comes in and tries to rob him of drugs, etc. Well I was there that night, in a patrol car, and there was no robbery gone bad, it was a husband of a lady. And what about the Bergin lady, yea they are tops in the county as far as I am concerned.
HMMM
