I am absolutely through with TJ Samson. They have absolutely screwed up everything at that hospital. From now on I will go to Bowling Green or Elizabethtown.

When you go to the hospital you see a hospoitalist as they are called not your family doctor. If I wanted to see any Dick, Tom or Harry I'd just go to Urgent Care. They are building this big complex where all the doctors associated with the hospital will have their offices. I don't know who is forking out the money on all these new changes but I'm glad its not me. They are going to go belly up because people around in this little community are not going to continue putting up with their crap.

I, for one, will be glad to see them go down. They have proven that all they care about is the money, not the patient. This is not big city and they should not be adopting all these big city ideas.

as this has been pointed out MANY times before, the only reason you will be admitted to one of the hospitalist doctors is because YOUR doctor has chosen not to see patients at the hospital anymore. it never has and never will be tj's decision on which doctors see their patients in the hospital. if you're not happy with seeing a hospitalist, then maybe you should have a talk with your doctor or find a new one all together. you my friend are a complete idiot. you will "be glad to see them go down"? a hospital that has served this community since 1929? and your reason is what? because of having to see a hospitalist or the fact that they are building a health pavilion (which is a way of shortening wait times for patients)? i don't get it. those are stupid reasons to want to see tj "go down". it's people like you that make working in health care HELL for people who truly care about helping people and making them better. grow up dude.

You are so right. My doctor still goes to the hospital AND is employed by TJ Health partners. Totally the doctor's choice if they go to the hospital or not. Also, going to Etown or BG is the answer? If your doctor doesn't admit here, probably doesn't admit in BG or Etown either....so one would probably end up seeing a hospitalist there as well, so where is the upside? Graves Gilbert is a collection of specialists who formed an organization so they not only could they better serve the community, but to have more leverage dealing with insurance companies. This is the vision for Health Partners. TJ is the largest employer in Barren County. So if they "go down" it will affect a lot more people than just the ones that work there. And finally, any medical institution from a single family practice doctor to Jewish Hospital is there to provide a certain service. If they don't make money, there is no service. See how that works? Nothing in health care is free, nor cheap. Medical malpractice insurance, supplies, employees...hell, electricity, gasoline to get to and from work : newsflash morons it all costs money (didn't even get to mention the debt aquired just becoming a doctor). So to all of you guys who feel like a medical establishment shouldn't make money, please feel free to go to Wal Mart for milk and ask if you can have bread and cookies for free. You'll find nothing is free at Wal Mart either.

Couldn't have said it better myself! It's so sad that people refuse to educate themselves before spewing lies and crap from their ignorant mouths. They don't realize the steps TJ is making towards bettering themselves and helping the people in this community better than any other small community could imagine. Learn some facts people before you start running your mouths!
right on

I don't see the big fuss about TJ Samson. I have said time and time again, and people who read this, will probably know who i am that types this just by my wording. Not every hospital is perfect. Med Center and Greenview aren't perfect like any other hospital. Every hospital has their flaws. I will re emphasize what the other person said.

Hospitalist program: Hospitalist program is for the doctors that choose that program so that they don't have be on call during the night or on the weekend. Also they don't have to come in after working long hours at their office. Hospitalists are contracted out by another company to TJ and other others. TJ Samson isn't the only hospital that have hospitalist or apogee. It relieves a lot of stress off of your primary care doctor. They are there 24/7. Some doctors choose the program; some doctors don't. Even if they are apart of TJ Health Partners, they have the choice. My doctor doesn't use the hospitalist program, and I know first hand that he comes in and see his patients. The group of doctors that he is apart of rotate and take call at night and on the weekend but during the week, every morning, he comes through.
It's your primary care doctor's responsibility to inform you that he/she won't see you at the hospital and that he/she uses the hospitalist program and that when the patient is discharged, the primary care physician will follow-up with him or her.

TJ is a great hospital, always looking for new ways to better the hospital and the community. I couldn't ask for a better community hospital. With the TJ Health Pavillion, it's bringing more jobs to the community which our community needs. I love working there and the staff are great. It's one family.

If you will notice, the main people who are behind all the negative stuff about the hospital are PEOPLE WHO DONT LIKE ANYONE OR ANYTHING BEING BIGGER THAN THEM! The ortho surgeon and cardiologist would be top notch in any community, but they're big fish in a small pond here. Not many people are richer that the owner of the downtown bar in Glasgow. Are people so naive as to think that these 3 people are the "common" interest of Barren County? I would hope not, and thus far, it has been proven that only a handful of naive church of christ and cumberland presbyterians actually take the side of these three rich people in Glasgow. It is obvious that they are disgruntled with the fact that TJ has become bigger than them and they no longer can control everything that goes on in Glasgow. Even if they join school boards, ban smoking, and open bars in Glasgow, there's still someone bigger than them and it just eats them alive. I'm glad the community realizes the real motives behind all this and looks for the positive in the healthcare choices they have right here at home.

I have been in TJ a couple of times in the past two years and I was not happy with the Hospitalist at all. They know nothing about me nor my past history. They do not know what is best for me. If TJ is going to use them, they could at least make an effort for them to contact their doctor and ask questions about them. My doctor came by my room and the Hospitalist got mad about it. I was thankful for the ER doctor but not the rest of the stay.

The biggest thing TJ needs to work on is their double billing. I pay my bills there and do not appreciate them waiting for a year and trying to bill me again. Lucky I kept all my bills and cancelled checks. I'm not the only one either.

Who voted for him? U fool! The popular vote doesnt even count. Its the electorial vote that has NOTHING to do with the people of the United States. The President is always pre-picked. But all these fools run to the polls because THEIR VOICE MATTERS! LMAO. R u people just born retarted? U HAVE NO CHOICE! Realize, accept it, and then we might be able to band together and change it. But not while all of us are in denial arguing back and forth between Republican and Democrat. This Socialist government and "New World Order" has been in plan for a LONG time before any of us were born. Just listen to the Presidents out their own mouth. Don't take my word for it, its all on the internet for ur disposal. Reagan,Bush,Clinton,Bush,Obama and alot of presidents before are part of this conspiracy. Only one tried to abolish secret societies... but they killed him. Wanna guess who? Give ya hint: Dallas! I am only 25 years old and my wisdom is 100 years past my time. But you can figure it too, its not that I am special. But to get back on subject, my doctor told me personally that he had no choice to sell out! The Government is mandating that all files must be electronic and the comnputers are so expensive that not even Doctors can afford them. The Doctors never wanted this. I used to pay $25 to see my doctor for 10 minutes now I pay $100 for the same amount of time. Now when they mandate we get chips in our hands, to keep track of our files lets see how many FOOLS line up to get that with a smile on their face. But eventually you will have to do it or not get medical care. Or possibly jailed. Welcome to your One World Socialist Government. Its only in Revelations but we are taught to believe this non sense and crazy today!

Lay off the drugs. Seriously? Another psycho with all his silly conspiracy theories? Just what this world needs. The only reason you post some crazy rant like this is because you actually believed it made you come off as smart/intellectual. But obviously, you are just completely full of yourself. "I'm 25 years old and my wisdom is 100 years past my time." Hahahahaha Please. Get over yourself. Let me give you some advice. If you actually want to get your point across, you don't belittle other people for not knowing these very rarely known/believed conspiracy theories. You're just making yourself look like a crazy ass douchebag. Do us all a favor and get a hobby instead of feeding on internet trash.

yea and half of u watch fox news and believe their conservative shit, half watch msnbc and believe their liberial shit and both watch CNN and believe their non partisan shit! Ur crazy! Blind! Just so u can be divided and fight amongst each other. I dont want to fight with u at all. But a fool is a fool. Ive been a fool plenty of times and will in the future. But u cant dismiss the evidence. Just look at it and tell me how it all can be coincidence. I pray I am wrong. But if you think ur vote actually matters in a presidential election u r a FOOL! And when my doctor tells me what happened to his practice... how in the fuck is that garbage? And yea my wisdom is about 100 years past my time but as I noted I'm not special. All of you can view the evidence urself and then have an opinion but untill then u have no right to call anyone CRAZY! But then again I shouldnt call anyone a fool. But like i said we are all foolish at times.

Just watch this one video and tell me how this could all be coincidence? Maybe if it was just one or two occasions but not hundreds! Come on man! Feel free to search more videos and websites if you want to see more evidence. But I bet you cant show me one shred of proof that its coincidence. If you can I am willing to play ball and view it.

Tj Samson is the worst hospital I have ever been to. I got an infection in my eye socket behind my prosthetic eye and they tell me that I should keep my prosthetic out because it has pink eye. A few months later I got that same eye hit where my prosthetic don't fit right anymore and my skin in sunken in where there is a new duvet in the bone under eye. They said it was a migraine that was causing it all. Now I am having to save money to go back to Ohio where real doctors are that can see sunken skin and prosthetics not fitting are not from migraines. Plus the sanitary conditions in this hospital are deplorable compared to other hospitals where I am from.
