Took my Mother to HMH ER for a heart attack. Walked in asked for EKG & handed insurance card & credit card for co-pays.
We were stopped by 300 pound woman wanting documents signed. The insurance card was more precious than my Mother's heart.
Demanded EKG, was told "She's at lunch"
My Rolex, keeps good time ,showed 47 minutes later some 19 year old rolls up with EKG cart talking to her "Baby Daddy" on cell phone.
I wrote complaint letter to Mr. Gray, waiting breathlessly to see what would be the; "excuse of the day". HMH letter told me after through review it has been determined that all response was within acceptable babble babble. I keep the letter as a trophy and to remind all my friends with any brains to keep a full tank of gas to get to the real Doctor's in Louisville!
"Know Better you shut your mouth. I am the dearly loved E-lected Official of these parts. I, I mean this County owns that hospital. If I, I mean if we say we're gonna buy sewers to get me, I mean we out if a jam; then that's what we're a fixing to do with hospital money.

The doctors that are opening up the new urgent care are not the owners of the previous Acute care. I don't know who actually owned it , but its not them. I'm sure the doctors felt the need for an urgent care center that was NOT under the clutches of HMH.... Some people have no desire to go anywhere that has the HMH name attached to it. I know I will never step foot on anything that is owned by them. I will gladly go to the new place when it opens !!!
You are wrong. PLUS, Dr. Zoeller was the CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER of AcuteCare...HMMMMMM. Listen to THEIR OWN radio station advertisement. THEY BRAG about being the previous owners...HMMMMM.

...Hardin County Judge Executive Harry Berry what he could give as advice to help. He serves of the Hardin Memorial Hospital's Board of Directors. He is also the one who approves HMH's BUDGET.
But does he ever go through the ER? If he were to come into the ER you can bet he would be given preferential treatment. And, who knows what the hospital tells the board?

I am surprised you never see any of the local "journalists" write about this.

A few things as a resident who uses HMH. If HMH buys up all local providers to keep Norton out of Etown, there are additional consequences. If you are one of the unfortunate people to be unfairly blacklisted by Ann K, Director if HR, then you won't be able to get a job anywhere. She eliminated the board reviewing manager vs manager disagreements, so she is the lone authority. Guess what, you now have no representation in the hospital. David G, past CEO, had information and capability to change this, but he had his sights set on promotion, so out he goes, and Ann K. runs the show.

So how do complimentary emails disappear out of HR files when an employee is under scrutiny for something Ann is pursuing? But don't take my word for it. Ask anyone in the hospital that has had dealings with HR.

Wow...you know this place well.

You are right in that the last CEO knowlingly did not change things. It is hard to change things in an organization that is inbred to the point whre everyone has some one that they are indebted to or went to high school with. BUT, you get the promotion.

Ultimately they are accountable to the taxpayers since it is a county hospital. You would think the local "journalists" would catch on. A Freedom of Information request could result in a juicy story for someone.

But then it would probably by stifled by someone who remembers where the journalist was when he told his wife that he was at work.

Nothing will change until they get competition.

It gets better. I agree with you. Picture this. The ER managers want a hospital texting policy to corral nurses texting while they are on the floor in the ER. Ann K. gets multiple texts a day from a family member in meetings constantly. So the issue is briefed to the Leadership, and of course, the policy is to let everyone text. Guess who briefed the issue to the Leadership. Yep, Ann K. Hence, no restrictions on texting.

A manager assists the hospital in implementing an applicant tracking system for employment. Ann K. didn't want it. After it;s adoption, guess what manager gets forced out by Ann K. Yep, the one who brought the hospital into the 21st century. You also had a manager that recouped thousands of dollars for the hospital on scholarships that weren't honored. Guess who gets forced out. Yep, that manager. Amazingly, pages upon pages of complimentary emails from directors, in that person's file, disappear from the file in Ann K's office. Go figure.

Of course, no reporter will touch this, because the evidence disappears from HR, David G. won't talk to anyone, and everyone is scared of Ann K. in HR because of no board for adjudicating disagreements. She dissolved it.

I agree with the person who said that they need competition.

No competition means loss of drive to make things better and an inferior product.

How many years have the long delays in the ER been discussed. Do they have a solution to this yet? No.

I for one think the staff at HMH are very kind and caring. They are very competent and skilled at their job.They were totally reassuring and made me feel so comfortable and at ease. I will definitely go there in the future if i ever need emergency care and i am 35 miles from their hospital. More than i can say for the hospital here in my home town that is for sure!!!!!!!

depends on the shift and the people. have had great ones and have had the kind that need to go volunteer at the goodwill. seems like they are all treated the same and in some cases the really good ones are put upon to cover for the lacking. not fair. save and praise the good ones. encourage the others to volunteer elsewhere. and quite honestly, I've heard and seen some of the doctors treat them like chicken squat. those pompous pieces of crap should be ridden out of town on a rail. hell, they can't even be nice to the damned patient who is paying their overblown salary. the more they think they're god, the more the treat people like crap.

I am sorry you all had problems. My family has only been to the emergency room for life and death matters or severe illness or injury. We have always been treated with great respect and care for both patient and family. The last time was for my husband who had a massive stroke. The care in ER along with the care of all hospital staff and Hosparus was excellent. When I had a problem with a Dr. the nurses,and Hosparus came to my aid, and fought the me. with their help my husband was able to spend his birthday,and fathersday at home with family and his beloved dogs. before he passed on the 6th day home. I will forever remember their care and kindness. We are not wealthy,or well known. Just average but we only use the emergency room when truly necessary and realise that if we are waiting means that someone else is in worse trouble

I am sorry for your loss.

Your husband's problem is what emergency rooms are there for.

However, it is the very long waits that more than a few people have that is the problem.

It has been theat way for years. You would think that by now the hospital would have figured out the problem and corrected it.

THe number of people using the ER over the last few years has probably increased a lot. It will do it more underr ObamaCare.

You would think that they would have had a plan to deal with it before now, assuming they have one now.
