On Sunday August 22nd my brother Danny (age 43)had a stroke and his wife Tammy took him to HMH. He was having trouble with his speech and walking, they ran some tests but the ER Doctor kept insisting to Tammy that he was drunk or on drugs. He was sent home and told to make an appointment with his family Doctor the next day.
Instead of taking Danny to his family Doctor Tammy took him to Central Baptist. They were met outside with someone with a wheelchair and he was taken away for more testing. All the same test that were done at HMH were done again and more.
Danny did have a stroke, possibly two. We can't remember the Doctor's name at HMH but he was tall and had red hair.

Has anyone else had trouble with a redheaded Doctor at HMH?

I had the same doctor a few weeks ago, I went in after hurting my hand and couldn't move it he did some x rays and squeezed it and told me it wasn't broken, I went to sjh in lex and they told me it was broke , I think he is a cold acting ass that doesn't need to be a doctor.....

Harrison Memorial is nothing more than a BAND-AID STATION !!!!! The doctors are COMPLETE IDIOTS !!!!! How horrible to take a loved one to the hospital which is clearly having a stroke and be told that he was under the influence of drugs ???? I wouldn't take my dog to that hospital !!!! The employees need to take a class in SENSITIVITY also!!!! Was told over the phone that my loved one had died !!! And another loved one was admitted to hospital while the whole family waited in the ER....then when no one came to let us know our loved one was in a room, we went to check on him....we were met by a so called doctor and told our loved one had PAST AWAY as we sit in the ER !!!! HOW FREAKING DISGUSTING !!!!! Our family should have contacted a attorney and PURSUED A LAWSUIT !!!!! Like I said HMH is nothing but a band-aid station.......SHEW I FEEL BETTER !!!!!!!!!!

We will never again go to HMH. The wife was thrown from a horse and taken there by Brown's. DR. Mullins looked at her, never checked for concussion or broken bones, just took one xray of where it hurt. Told us it wasn't broken, just bruised. Even the xray tech said that it didn't look right, but he said he was the DR. Sent her home with pain meds that didn't work. To make a long story short, Went to UK had seven hrs of surgery for a broken pelvis.and a months stay between the surgery and rehab. Needless to say, our attorney is handling the matter now.

I have had several x-rays, lab work, ect done at this place. I have always had to pay more then any where else. I have BC&BS plus Medicare. I can go to this place and pay out the a$$ in addition to my insurance. I can go to Georgetown or any place in Lexington have the same tests done and pay nothing except my co pay. I dont use them I go to Georgetown, it might cost 5 or 6 dollors in gas but if you save 2 or 3 hundred dollars, get treated better, and get a better doctor, plus be treated like a human being instead of a dollar sign. Its worth it.

i took my child to HMH after she got hit in the head at school. she was crying and saying she had a headache. no x-rays, no scans. the doctor (if that's what u wanna call him) looked in her ears and said she wasn't in pain because she got hit in the head, she had a viral ear infection. they gave her 1 tylenol and sent us home. i wish someone could explain how getting hit in the head causes or has anything to do with a viral ear infection? so we went to UK, and she was fine, luckily. they also checked her ears and couldn't find the viral ear infection she supposedly had 2 hours earlier.

I have a similar story.....My husband started having excrutiating pain in his abdomen and back so we went to HMH (they should drop the last H) we waited for 3 hours in the ER for something, anything.... He was actually yelling for help.... finally the doctor from africa???? came in and said we've been busy and asked my husband if his pain medicine had kicked in yet.... He hadn't been given anything! He was writhing on the bed! The nurses had been to busy chatting it up about their plans and other personal information! They forgot to give him the medicine. Turns out my husband had Kidney Stones... I understand if there is a huge emergency that they might have forgotten him but REALLY!! The doctor did get onto the nurses but that still doesn't ok the lack of care you get when you go there. I know some of the nurses that work for HMH and they're great, but it only takes a few bad ones to make the whole place look bad.... They should clean house or lower their rates..... Same thing happened for my brother-in-law who got kicked over a fence by a cow... he never goes to the ER but he went on that occasion and they FORGOT he was in a cubicle!!!!! He got up and left but not before informing them all what he thought! The only reason anyone remembered he was there was a housekeeper walked by and seen him in the cubicle and asked the nurses if anyone was gonna help him! Needless to says he also told them not to bother sending him a bill..... and don't get me started on the time I took my 12 month old up there and the cold dr.gainey said she had turned out to be pneumonia and bronchitis caused from RSV!!!!! You would have thought the 103.1 temperature she had would have given it away but apparently if your a DR at HMH you don't have to look at the obvious symptoms.... Just give a prognosis of something simple and let the patient go out the door so they can find a doctor to contradict that diagnoses..... IDIOTS...

my grandmother has been seen (note i didn't say treated) that doctor and he's not worth paying either. you are right about the nurses to. i have heard plenty about there life and plans while my grandmother was waiting patiently, and painfully for them to help her. this place is a joke. they bill thereself as a "Regional Medical Center" and that's a crock.......
