Can anybody explain why the ER at Baptist Hospital in Booneville is so slow? The nurses and doctors seem to just mill around with nothing to do. Even if they are waiting on test results, would it kill them to give the patients an update

The ER gets flooded with to many people that are to lazy to work and go up there to get a fix or when they have a cold and put it on their 'gold card'. If you have very many problems with hospitals, doctors, cost, etc. wait until obamacare goes into full effect.

Unless you have a cold or something minor, don't go there! A lot of people make their living there doing nothing. I have known many people who died there while staff earned a paycheck. Wouldn't go there for a broken toe, maybe if I had the flu.

If it were an " emergency" they would rush you through. People abuse the ER. Go to the DR if you can walk and talk. I see people leave ER and lite a cigarette as soon as they get to their car after they were just seen for breathing problems.

I was there with my 14yr old niece. She had the tip of her finger cut off. It was held on by her nail. We waited for 6hrs. Yes, we should have left, but everytime they said she was next.
When the Dr came in, he said she should have been back sooner. He got me started! Not on him, but on how stupid the triage nurse was. They are the ones who put you out to wait or get you back.
There are some good Drs working there & some should be fired.
The reason my family still goes there is because when we go it is an emergency. Which means it is faster to get to.

that is a lie!!! I had chest pain and waited three hours. If you don't have money they don't want to touch you then they assume you just want drugs! I wish the employees that are sincere could find a better place to work bc the ones that don't care is giving them a bad name

good choice there! they can treat the flu- they don't have a bone dr. that's why things get backed up. people come in there for pregnancy to and they don't have an ob dr either. some people are just stupid!!

they have the choice to judge if you are true chest pain or not. people have learned they can come in and say that and get back quicker. i guess you people think we are total idiots there. to the ones that are there 3 or 4 times a week-don't bother crying chest pain cuz it won't work for you- we have several regular clients and we know who you are!

another LIE!!! I had to go to tupelo the next day and you don't know who I am because I don't go there by choice!!! We can see now how you went to school for an education just to judge and misdiagnose!!! I was having a light heart attack that could have killed me if I had actually believed what I was told( that I had indigestion) and had not went to TUPELO!!! The only thing Booneville done was BLOOD WORK!!! Get a real job!!! Since you can't save a life

Actually when I came in last year. I was in serve pain because of a stone. The doctor did a ct and seen nothing wrong!! He wouldn't help me. I had to come back the next night and that doctor knew what he was doing!! My kidney was blocked and I had infection!! So no half the time they won't do crap!!!

what a hateful ignorant post. The high cost of healthcare is a result emergancy room visits by people who can't afford or don't have insurance . thank god for obamacare. now people will be able tofind affordable insurance through exchanges. that by the way the people of Mississippi will have to wait for because of inaccurate rightwing bluster such as yours...the original posts premise is silly too .
