I don't get it. Why is it when someone goes to Ft. Duncan for virtually "any" condition, they end up getting sent to San Antonio? Can these idiots at Ft. Duncan do anything ??? What was the purpose of building a new multi-million dollar hospital????? Like the new stadium, another waste of taxpayers money!

For your information FDRMC was NOT built was TAX PAYER $$$ it's PRIVATE owned by Universal Health System! Maverick County Hospital District sold it years ago! Now FDRMC transfers WHEN necessary. Be grateful they SAVE ur life by sending where they have SPECIALIST! If not REFUSE to transfer & u can DIE! Die complaining!

Maybe you're right, and hopefully you are, cuz I hope we aren't paying for that debacle of a hospital! If you need anything more than motrin and a band-aid, they send you to San Antonio!!! What a waste of a building! Do they even staff qualified people there??????

Yeah well FDRMC does what they can with the people/staff they got. Some qualified good personnel others not. Just like other places in town- EPISD & City & Walmart. The problem FDRMC has too is keeping good staff alot leave get burned out.... The other problem we don't have Specialist only regular doctors so if your illness is complicated well they don't want you to die or be worst off they send you to get special care. So don't it's not other places in town service is sometimes great then other times you get not so great. That's how it is here in EP.

I agree. Look at Applebees, same thing... they hire this Eagle Pass trash and then wonder why their business failed. Same for the hospital I guess! Hiring all this trash is hurting the reputation of the hospital

The hospital was built with the intent to lure more physicians to the community. Which was a backward way of doing things , tho the facility is equipped they don't have the doctors. Most of the EP doctors have a terrible bed side manner and a god complex! The employees should treat the patients with dignity and respect but they are so stuck on their job title that they feel as if everyone who walks thru the door is worthless so if you can make it to san Antonio I suggest you go there instead.

Plain and simple.. There's only 1 surgeon on call and if that surgeon is busy with another patient in another surgery... It's logical that if you require immediate medical attention you won't be left wanting.. The smartest thing to do us ship you out!! Most ppl think they are The only patient sick in a hospital.. That's not the case, just because we don't see the rest of the patients doesn't mean there's no one else to get attended.. Patients always get Evaluated n some are more Ill then others.. I would research before doing any blind comments.. The hospital has good staff n great doctors. It's just complex for normal ppl to understand the procedures.. It's like going to the ER if they take for ever to attend you for a stomach pain, it's because they are attending ppl who are in life or death situation.. They are not going to prioritize a fever for a heart attack or something of that source. It's commen sence.. But many ppl don't see it that way. They think they are the only ppl sick n don't realize that they won't die if they wait while the same doctor is saving a person who's about to die.

You are correct there is only one surgeon on call and see patients in the offic, they work long and hard. But I think the question posed was regarding a multimillion dollar facility that is not able to serve the community at its fullest potential. They should of contracted more doctors before building the hospital. But they thought if they made a better facility it would lure in more doctors., They thought wrong . I just hope in the near future eagle pass can have good quality care for the community and show the doctors that work tirelessly the respect they deserve by bringing more doctors to help them.

Everyone I talk to tells me about how that hospital almost killed them. They either can't handle a situation and recognize it too late. For example they let a woman have a miscarriage in their waiting room for hours - bleeding to death in pools of blood - till she almost died before they would even look at her. Another mom came in was in crisis and they ignored her warning that she was high risk -- they took 24 hours to get her to San Antonio. The baby was black and had to be delivered on the ambulance -- mom almost died. They of course killed my dear daf. He was clearly sick and deteriorating. They held him in that hospital for over a week lying that he was not sick, or improving when all along he wasn't. They transferred his dead body to SA to pronounce him. Don't go there. If you are sick take an aspirin and have someone take you to San Antonio. You will get the care you need faster if you drive yourself.

eagle pass is one of the poorest communities in the united states. Hospitals are shutting down all over the united states for lack of funds. Too many people that don't have insurance or cannot work wind up in the ER. Excuse me but where are you going to get the money to pay the health professionals? Your nurses and doctors are college educated. How many of those do you think the community is able to entice to come to the beautiful city of Eagle Pass and its wonderful educated citizens that take their medications, know about the medical history, can name the medications and know what they are for, take care of their health, take care of their children's health. by insurance I'm not talking about medicaid. thats not insurance. that's a handout. Ignorance. What does your community have to offer? Crime, drugs, uneducated people, trash everywhere you look. Oh yes, lets all swarm to Eagle Pass. It has so much to offer. Bring your family. Your children will receive a quality education.

I took my mom to that hospital back in October cause she wasn't feeling well and also noticed that she had lost a lot of weight. I live 6 hours away and it's not easy going down to EP but do have good friends that would keep me posted on my mom through out the years.... the last call that I got from one of my friends said that my mom had not recognize him, well I immediately drove down there and noticed the weight loss and some things that she would say didn't make sense. Well I finally got her in the ER and waited about two hours before the doctor finally came to check her out and ask my mom what was wrong with her and she responded saying her stomach hurts a lot and I told him that she had lost a lot of weight.
Then a young Hispanic nurse walks in and sees my mom and tells the Doctor Vellderama not sure on the spelling of the doctor last name anyways the nurse tells the the doctor she comes in all the time for any little thing so the doctor says oh well then you're ok and you can go home now. I was like WTF I couldn't believe what I was hearing so I said aren't going to run some blood work or urine test on her just to make sure and he said no she fine I was like MF of course I just kept it to myself. So I brought my mom to where I live checked her in the hospital and found out she had a very bad bacterial infection along with Alzheimer's. She was in the hospital for 10 day's and now she lives with me. I'm still so upset at those so call doctor and nurse or wanna be doctor and nurse.

your right! The nurses there have a terrible attitute and think they are doctors. They are stuck up and more concern about you calling them RNs. They get offended if u say they are just nurses. Stupid I'd*ots! Learn the difference between a stomach bug and c-diff.
