I'm guessing you work for the bowie hospital? What a fine establishment.. Where you go in for a headache and get diagnosed with a broken leg.

Bowie Hospital is an absolute Joke!! I have NEVER been treated well there! I went in for a pretty embarrassing problem, even though I didn't want to because of being embarrassed, and the nurses Laughed & Cracked Jokes about it! And, the doctor joined in! I just ALMOST sued their inconsiderate ASSES! The service is so pathetic, I wouldn't take my dog there! My son also broke his ankle, we went there, they did an X-Ray and said there was nothing broken, that he had sprained it. The next day swelling became much worse, so we took him to Wise County and he had broken his growth plate in his ankle, and was in surgery getting a rod & pins the same week! The staff there are very very lazy and inconsiderate. Oh, and we took our 3 year old after he had swallowed a screw one evening,.. there was no one else in the ER or in back.. AFTER 1 HR & 45 Min, they took him back & did an X-Ray, then told us that he would most likely pass it... I remember as a child & growing up, they were Much better. I really am not trying to discredit this hospital just to stir shit, Really, but it is truly pathetic. Maybe that's why they cant get funding... because everyone knows this. I do hope that someone comes in and changes it. Until then, I will go to Decatur or W. Falls where the staff is caring & MUCH MUCH more professional. These instances are 100 percent true. And the rest is just my opinion. As for the one who said that for every one person who doesn't like it, there's three that do,... I HIGHLY Doubt that!!!! We aren't just making all this up.

Is there not a hospital in Nocona anymore?
yes

Yes, there is a hospital in Nocona. All you haters, quit bashing Bowie Memorial, it is only going to get better as United Regional out of Wichita takes over. I could bask Wise Regional, Harris Methodist, Azle, even United Regional, but you can't do that. Things aren't always visible...until later. I don't believe half the stories presented here, because you all hate everything...

I don't "hate" anything, however, Myself, along with many other people are just fed up with pathetic services at our only hospital/ER in town. I don't know if the others are just making these instances up, but, mine are the truth, along with a few other unsatisfactory visits. So, go ahead and talk trash about me "having a screw loose", I'm not to concerned with that. By the sound of it, you are most likely one of the piss poor staff, probably on the internet at work instead of doing your job. I really hope that United Regional can turn this around. But, I believe that it'll take a whole new staff..

No, I do not work for Bowie Memorial but have first hand knowledge of how they handle patients. I have had several family members use the ER and in the hospital. I don't think you have a screw loose "truth" but I do think there is too much hating and bashing on this forum. Is there anything, any business, any thing at all that you all like?

actually, this is the first time I have ever commented on anything from this site. And only been on here a few times. It is a bad bad site. you are correct, there is way too much bashing on here. My intention is not to just bash the hospital, however, just to vent about my bad encounters there. Most people in Bowie know that there IS a major problem with it anyway. Most likely, the majority of people that go there is because they don't have insurance, or is Truly an emergency, because I cant see anyone actually choosing Bowie Memorial for ANY type of medical care. I have Great insurance and always have, so, I am looking for the best possible care that I can get, And, sorry if it offends you, but, It DAMN sure isn't BMH!!! Hopefully they can get their shit together and be a little more compassionate...

You are probably one of the free-loading dead beats that has no insurance, or has Medicaid, Lone Star card, no job and never pays their hospital bills, right? Democrat looking for a handout, obamacare, or whatever you can get for free.. Because I really cannot see any other reason to take up for the trash that works there... LOL..(yea, that one may have been un called for, but, what the hell.. just a hunch)

Blow it out your butt. Most old Republicans are on Social Security and Medicare.People that have salary deductions for SS and Medicare collect 10 times what they pay in.

"Truth" is fiction, at least on statements about people who can't afford health insurance.

I hv ALWAYS hated bowie er. Last month my son was up with an ear ache and I didn't want to go out of town so I thought I'll go down to this dump called a hospital and for 1 time n my life it was great service. I was out of there n 30 minutes. I don't no her name but they had a really old lady doctor she was in there the same time the nurse was. I got lucky. But yes other than tht one visit mine had all been horrible. First time for everything I guess and I'm not a peice of crap just because I'm on Medicaid. And yea I do hv some unpaid medical bills but tht doesn't define me I'm not lazy

I also visited the ER recently and had a bad experience. I have always talked the hospital up, hoping they would get better. I never say negative things about them. But this last visit was anything but good. The doctor in the ER (two different shifts involved) bed side manner was lacking in compassion. The first one just wanted to go home (shift change) and the 2nd one looked like a bag lady and acted like I was putting her "out" per say. I do hope that United Regional will come in like a lion and clean house. The ER was not clean, definitely not up to hospital standards. They didn't even bring me a blanket! I had to ask for one two hours after being in ER and cold. They also made me wait in the waiting room while the paperwork was being processed. I should have been taking back immediately, especially since nobody else was in the waiting room. The ER nurse made a comment that she was hoping to get some sleep that night. I really hope UR comes in and replaces each nurse and doctor...time for a real change...I had much rather go to Decatur or Wichita but this was an emergency and could not.
umm yea

I'm sorry but what does it matter that the ER nurse said she was hoping to get some sleep tonight? That's not rude or unprofessional. Maybe she was just trying to make small talk. Y did u go there? Oh u said it was an emergency? Well what if this hosp hadn't been there and u would have HAD to had gone some where else? I don't understand u ppl. If you don't like Bowie hospital then go somewhere else! Damn. Grow up! I had to take my child their one time and they were very good with him. Got him to feeling much much better.
