I have to agree that the food they serve there is totally tasteless and of lowest quality.
And the staff there is so filthy looking.
Makes you want to puke !!!

FMH has developed over the years a terrible image in this community. So much of that credit goes to past administrator, David Brandon and "his chosen paid board of directors". From the beginning the Board of Directors of FMH were people appointed to serve, from various organizations/entities from this community. They served with no pay but possessed a spirit of civic duty and pride.

David Brandon changed all that with his crooked tenure as administrator. Many of the staff, from Doctors down to the sweeper have been caught up in this mess, now going on for years. This Board needs to be replaced and create a new direction for this hospital. It will not change with this current board, for it possesses no leadership qualities among its members.

This Board needs to resign and create a passage document from them to a new Board that can easily be appointed within weeks. There use to be a method to recall an appointment to the Board when they didn't do their job but that doesn't exist today.

. The hospital was much better off when Mr Brandon was here. I don't think he would have let Drs White & Gardner leave. He would have tried to keep them. And would have tried to buy 44 instead of Reid.

Reid is not that great of a hospital either,but I guess compared to FRHS, it has more physicians and nurses...and much more specialists.
We did have some good doctors here...and there are a couple of them left..but the incompetent Board and the lousy Administration chased off all the good nurses and dotors.
Now with Dr.Jag Patel leaving, the floors would be pretty empty.
Dr. Jag hasn't been in the hospital for years. Or are you saying he is shutting down his practice?

Harp all you want, Obamanator. It's one thing to tackle the healthcare system to lower the costs and another thing to FORCE people to pay a FINE if they don't have it. The 'HAVES' will still get the best care while the 'HAVE NOTS' will still get whatever is left. Obama is only fixing up the blacks, latinos and aids carriers.

And just one more time...the hospital is going down the drain because of Randy White and the Board and not David Brandon.
The Hospital had enough money when David was here to give Christmas parties to all employees, and bonuses on Thanksgiving and Christmas...Randy has stopped that and there have ben more lay offs.
He is perhaps the most incompetent person in that hospital followed by the ignorant Board.

I stand corrected. But, then, again, our wonderful re-elected President is gonna force us all to have insurance. What then?
What then? I'll tell you what then. Then an insurance company will be required to cover your expenses and not the rest of us, who pay for insurance now. Tell me, regardless of who the president is, why should I be against a plan that means I have to pay only for my own insurance, and not your medical care anymore? Wow, I'd think that's right up a republican alley--you know, the whole "every man for himself, we aren't responsible for anybody else, your deal-you pay for it" kind of thinking. I'm amazed the republicans didn't come up with that idea to begin with. Oh, but wait. It WAS a republican's idea. Slipped my mind.

In an emergency I bet you still can count on Fayette over no one at all if you only have a matter of a few minutes to get there. Think of that. Better hope they do not close.

Don't even mention the Emergency Room.
People with real emergencis have been known to have waited for hours there...many many times.
You could be at Reids in 30 minutes and being treated...just cause you made it to the FRHS emergecy in time is no guarantee you would get a prompt attention.

I know for a fact if you go to the ER with a TRUE emergency such as we had to, you don't wait. This has happened to two of my family members over the past couple of years. If it wasn't. For this ER, we would have lost both of them.

You're Giving them hell because they didn't get a Christmas party but I'm talking about them saving my daughter and mother's life. I do believe that is more important and I'm sure the community would agree.

I do not agree with that statement. Both Dr.White and Gardner have huge practices and now they are all going to Reids.

Disagree, I'm glad for you that they were able to help your loved ones. I'm sorry to say that we were not so fortunate. My loved one lives every day with the consequences of the lack of care. They received. It was appalling.

ANY doctors would be better than the ones we have!!! Whats with the ER Dr telling several patients "I dont know what it is", "I'm not sure" and "I dont know what the problem is I'm writting it off as a muscle sprain" ???? Seriously?? What quacks. Pretty sad I have to sit here sick for so very long because I'm so very untrusting after having 3 different dr's tell me 3 different things. I sure as HELL won't ever see a dr in this town again. Complete morons. I for sure don't trust em after having Dr. Raham screw me up so bad when he was here and I know I'm not the only one!! When he schedualed (sp) me for a 3rd surgery for the same thing, I went to Dr. Landry/Johnson for a 2nd opinion. What did they say? I didnt even need the first two surgeries!! I want a real doctor not one who wants to PLAY doctor! I'm still traumatized from all that and it was in 2005!!!

Hopefully Reid will open its door soon, although I have heard that the FRHS is trying to stop them from coming in......they know they can't compete.
