There have been BIG HAPPENINGS taking place at CMC in the last couple days. Stay tuned, there are more to come.

My gut feeling is that CMC will be closed very soon.

Everyone needs to check out Knoxville News! Medicare/Medicade will stop all payments to CMC on September 16th, If they do not get in compliance. This was brought on from the recent sexual assault alligations against a hospital employee

The assault is part of it, but there are other factors that are bringing Medicare as well as Joint Commission in to investigate.

There are many wonderful people who work and have worked at CMC. The problems are with the way they are treated by the board and administration. They need a new group of people to take over and see all that has transpired in the past. A lot of it will be astounding when discovered.
It is time for the "good ole boys" to go home and let a new and more experienced group clean up the place.

The NURSES get no respect ....the staff is treated like factory workers in sweat shops of third world countries. Quality people will not stay in such working conditions these days. Why do you think so many have quit in the past few months?????
You get what you pay for....and the standards are starting to show up what a mess this hospital has become. AND, everyone has just stood by and let it happen.
Kinda like our country....we all just sat back and "let" it fall......and so did Cumberland County and Cumberland Medical Center...Crossville .....the city beautiful........
The blame does not fall on just a few.
Now........let us talk about our hungry children and the quality of our public school system.....sigh..........

Just remember if are hospital closes. There will be no hospital here in Crossville. This would mean traveling during an emergency at least 40 mins. Would someone who is having a heart attack make it ? I think that over all this hospital is unlike most hospitals and that is the personal touch that is received, by the nursing, cleaning, secretarial, and other employees at Cmc. Yes its not perfect but neither is any of the hospitals that I have visited around the US. We have something special here and it has been said to me as a nurse over and over how good the care was that they received. This says something for our hospital. Im sure that most that are slandering our hospital are those that dont pay for the services or fee that are charged by the hospital but those that are riding the free train. Just think that could all be coming to an end.

I can hardly believe it. It is one of those things that is so crazy that you think it will never happen where you live.
