Idk when I go in with a migraine they give me my shot and send me home. Maybe she's not from here and they don't have a chart on her with her medical history.

I took my best friend in with a headache and the nurse was very rude to him. Finally after some serious complaining they agreed to give him a shot. To our surprise when the nurse asked him to drop his trousers for the shot he had a lightbulb hanging out of his ass.

I think there is a law about hospital doing that they can't send you home in the same pain you was in they are by law to care for you and make you feel better and doc know this even tho they gave her a pill and she was still hurting that bad they should have done more to help here look it up because that's why they get away with it no one stands up for the sick and helps them the nurse should have told the doc to do something more and then report the doc

did your friend have insurance? maybe their doing all they can to save money by doing the bare minimum for those they know have no insurance or a history of not paying. It's certainly what I would do. I have insurance and have been there a few times I've always had good service minus the long wait their very slow to be sure, no one's lighting any fires under anyones butt their

Nothing is wrong with the Bowie Hospital. Have had many family members receive great care and treated accordingly. Perhaps, they could not find what your problem was. I know for a fact they won't let you leave there if your BP is at a dangerous level. I know for a fact that if you need a specific medicine, they will administer it. So quit hating our hospital. If you don't like it, drive to Wichita Falls

I once felt bad - had a home diagnosis - decided to go to the hospital for medical care.
They gave my a pill to take and sent me home. When I got the bill I got a migraine too. This private pay crap ain't all its cracked up to be. Think I'll sign up for Obamacare!

Well for one her Bp was up to 169/134 when they sent her home I know I was there yes it went down but wasn't much lower then when she went in and her pain was still there she was crying in pain and sick and they gave her a pill and sent her on her way doc told her we don't give shot here I lol anyway u wasn't there I was I know what was said and done nothing was done to help her she went home throwing up all night and in pain I took her to a diff hospital and they gave her some Bp meds and pain meds and stopped her from throwing up so yes bowie hospital suck to a point when the wrong doc is working

Yup it's all about the doctor that's working there some care and some just want that pay check and the hell with ppl I'm glad u got her feeling better god bless u for being there for her and helping her to the end because u never know what one hospital will miss another will find it and save a life u just never know trust me I seen it with my own eye when my son broke his leg we took him to bowie and they gave him pain meds and X-Ray told use his leg wasn't broken the next day he was in so much pain and sick we took him to WRH and they x-rayed it and it was broken we had to take him to Denton for pins and stuff had a long surgery on it

Sorry to say this but, if you need more than a bandaid and Tylenol you are better off driving 30 minutes down the road to Decatur. Modern facility, latest equipment, and very caring staff.

As far as the x-rays, I have went to other hospitals that have missed a broken bone also, and yes some hospitals have more up to date technology then others. But also Bowie tried to pass a tax so that they could modernize and help out to make things better and it was shot down. So before you gripe about how bad something is, look and see how things could have been made better and people wouldn't let them. Also look at how many people come into the ER for things that are no where near an emergency, i.e. a cold they have had for 3 days then on Sat at 3 am it becomes an emergency, Or they fell and hurt their back 2 months ago and all of a sudden its an emergency because they went to the dr and got a prescription for pain meds, can't afford to get them filled, but are smoking a pack of cigs a day and want the er to give them a shot or something. People don't understand what a "REAL" emergency room is used for. You can talk crap all day long about the Bowie Hospital, but I am pretty sure that for every 1 person that gets on this site mouthing it, there are 3 people who are very glad that the hospital is here or owe their life to the fast thinking of the hospital, for being able to stabilize and get the patient somewhere in a hurry to save their life. Keep on talking the bad gossip, cuz the hospital is still going to be doing what it does best, and it is saving lives regardless of how bad you talk about it. And, it still sees those "so-called" emergencies that need to be seen and treats them accordingly.

Well they need to stop judging ppl because the hospital is in a drug town some ppl in this town don't do drugs and r good ppl and because someone hasn't seen a doc in a long time cuz they haven't been sick don't mean they do drugs or because they took there meds for there problem there having and it didn't help and they need more help cuz there Bp won't go down don't mean they r on drugs that's whats wrong with them is they think cuz u come in looking bad your on drugs the last time I checked when ppl r sick and don't feel good they all look bad come on

Anyone that is a medical professional can tell you that one of the first things we are taught is "Pain is what the patient says it is!" We all handle pain differently. A well trained Dr. or nurse will realize this. Don't ever make the mistake of judging someone's pain level by the way they look. We have this new thing called vital signs that will help you make a more educated assessment of what a patients pain level really is. Not their clothes, hair style, or the amount of insurance they can afford. We are professionals, let's act that way.
