Anyone had a bad experience with the ultrasound techs at Carthage Hospital?

I had my first ultrasound there on wednesday and the two techs were arguing with me in the room. The lady who actually did my ultrasound flat out told me at the end of it that she was new and really didn't know what she was doing.

I got no picture of the baby, she refused to show me the monitor to see the baby. When she wouldn't tell me anything I asked to speak with the radiologist and the tech told me the radiologist was too busy to see me.

I have made a formal complain with the hospital, but I'm curious to know if anyone else has had problems there.

I know I will not go back there for my next ultrasound. I'm still in pain from the last one. Since this is my first baby, I thought what she was doing was normal. She pushed down on my stomach so hard I had cramps and pains for 3 days.
That sucks

Aww! I'm sorry you had that experience! I went to lowville and had a high risk pregnancy for both so I was there a lot. I hope the next time is better!

I will be going to lowville for my next ultrasound as well, and probably every ultrasound from here on out. It's a bit if an inconvenience because I love in Carthage, but its well worth it.

I too had a bad experience. I was miscarriaging my 1st pregnancy and did not know at the time this was happening. The ultrasound tech (blonde hair) talked down to me and was degrading. She was called in the middle of night and not sure if this was her problem. She took the job and chose a career as a tech so I expected a lot more professionalism from her. When I asked her about all the blood she was like "what do you expect when you are losing a baby?" That is how I found out. Did not choose this hospital by choice and will not return.

That's horrible and very very rude. I'm so sorry you went through that. Unfortunately I think I am going to lose this baby too as they can't find the fetal pole or a heartbeat. Tonight at 6 pm will be my 4th ultrasound and I'm only 8 weeks. It sucks and its a really awful thing to go through.

Sorry to hear that. My prayers are with you. Lowville Hospital has much better care. Goodluck!
