The doctors at the ER are very rude and mean. They do not care about there patients at all. Michael Stanley a doctor in the ER was laughin and smilin while tellin me and my husband i was loosin my baby. Thats nothing to be laughing about. You dont know how bad me or my husband just wanted to grab him up and beat the crap out of him.

I miscarried in Dec 2005. I was approximately 13 weeks along, had had one ultrasound (the only picture I have left to remember my baby by) and was told everything was fine.
When I started to bleed and have the contractions, My husband and I went immediately to the ER. After waiting over an hour just to see a doctor, it was too late and nothing could be done to save my baby. The idiot who finally saw me WANTED TO SEND ME HOME!!! I was in excruciating pain and bleeding profusely.
If I had no insisted on staying at the hospital I could have died. I was not released until the next day by my regular OB/GYN and was very dizzy for weeks from the blood loss. I was also severely anemic and became clinically depressed over the loss of my child.
It's horrible to suffer the loss of a pregnancy, but the attitude of the T.J. ER made a bad situation even worse for my husband and myself.

i totally agree. last year i was pregnant also and had went out there b/c i hae been bleeding for 15days straight and they said it was normal. well i finally passed a huge blood clot and told the ppl.@ tj and they had enough balls to say tht i didnt miscarry. when i knew tht i did. they treated me like sh!t. then i went about2 weeks ago and i was just spottin, wasnt hurtin at all. and michael stanley told me tht i he thought i was havin an etopic pregnancy. but he wanted me2 come back2 the hospital to make sure my blood count was going up. it went from859to 1201 in just2 days. then i went back in2days and it doubled to 2859. they said if it went up the baby would be fine. cuz if it was a tubel it would stay the same or drop. so for about a week me and my husband was so happy cuz we thought it wasnt a etopic pregnancy. I went in yesterday for an ultrasound and they told me tht nothin has changed and tht they cldnt see the baby. they said it was in my tubes. so dr.dirig had2 do surgery on me. i balled my eyes out cuz they said my baby was fine then all of a sudden it wasnt. and michael stanley had enough nerve to laugh and smile while he was tellin me and my husband tht they had2 do surgery and remove my baby.and furthermore two weeks ago when i said i went he wanted me to take tht pill to abort my baby. like i told him, im not takin nothin and killin my baby. if its in my tubes-so be it do surgery. i just thinks its rude how they can look at u in ur face and tell u one thing and lie the whole time. gettin me and my husbands hopes built up. i am so angry and pissed at him. i hope he looses his job. Tj samson is full of sh!t and dont care at all. i hate tht hospital. i know if i get pregnant again im going to bowling green.

Funny this post shows up..I was at TJ yesterday too. The place is a sorry excuse for a hospital. I was absolutely humilated by two different health care "professionals" during a MRI and
X-Ray. Actually, it was so bad I am embarrased to explain what happened to me. I will never ever, ever be back there again. My heart breaks for you and your husband and I am so sorry for your loss. I am certain the level of indecency and insensitivity you had to endure was extremely painful. Prayers to you.

call "the office of the investigator general" see if there is something they can do. also report the doctor to the hospital patient advocate. you have the right to ask any questions. doctors are paid by our insurance, they need to realize people are not ignorant. we can find other doctors!

Do you mean "inspector general"?

Someone told me the ER doctors at TJ are not employees of the hospital but rather a private group. What does anyone know about that? What is the name of the group that hires them?

I pulled a muscle early on in my pregnancy arranging furniture (yes, I know a big no no) Micheal Stanely prescribed me a muscle relaxer that they use on infants, well let me tell you I did a little research on the prescription I was given before I decided not to take it because it crosses the placenta and at my stage in pregnancy, if I took it, it could have possibly caused future complications to my developing baby! This man knows nothing, and especially nothing about pregnant women!

that would be correct. The hospital only owns the ER, the Drs that work it basically pay a lease for that spot. They are a private group with each Dr owning a % of their company. Basically they are their own bosses, and their is no one over them. I do know that they do have to follow the letter of the law the same as other doctors with privileges at TJ.

You are correct, but are missing the bigger picture. Yes they lease the space, but if the hospital loses money they have the chance of losing the plush little arrangement they have for themsleves. Making all the money while while letting PAs and nurse practitioners do most of the work. This is the future of TJS and the joke that is TJ Health Partners. Same good ole boys' system with a new age twist. Now if you go to the hospital for admission, make sure your doctor still goes there or a group of hospitalists will see you. My wife was admitted there a month or so ago for chest pain.....every little thing that was found, a new specialist was consulted. She went in for an over night observation for chest pain and before we left, a GI doctor was consulted (she complained of nausea once), a lung doctor (she's a little out of shape and CAUSUALLY mentioned she was short winded), a cardiologist (for the chest pain), and the rotation of different hospital doctors who came and went in the blink of an eye. One scratches the other and then another and so forth and so on because if all make money off one person, the institution makes money and thus ensures that arrangement of all stays alive. Biggest question to ask your doctor : do you go to the hospital?? If not, might as well be Bowling Green or Louisville because you are not going to see the person who knows you the best.

I hate to tell you even if you go to Louisville or Bowling Green you are going to see a Hospitalist Dr., same as if you go to TJ. No, I don't totally agree with this because my Dr is one who doesn't see his patients in the hospital anymore, because I don't feel comfortable with that. On the flip side just incase you were not informed your wife didn't have to see any of the other doctors consulted, from working in a hospital most patients and their families don't realize they have the option to refuse. I agree with you that her to complaints other than chest pain may not have been a reason to call in to other people unless they thought they were missing a piece of the puzzle with her health.

i had to go back to tj samson yesterday b/c of my surgery. I was still swollen and hurtin really bad. i didnt wanna go back there but i did. But as soon as i went in i asked the nurse was michael stanley working and she had told me yes.,,I told her tht i refuse to have him any where near me or my room. I also told her the reason why. I had got a great doctor named Chris. He was very concerned with my swellin and pain. He took good care of me. Thanks to Susie(nurse). So when i go to tj samson now its on my file that Michael Stanley cannot treat me at all.

I went to early labor with my son. He was two and a half months early. After I had him the doctors at TJ had to hook him up to oxygen because he could not breath on his own. They had called for a stat flight to kosiars. I couldn't see him but my mother told me just a few minutes after they hooked him up he turned blue. As soon as the helicopter showed up a woman took everything off of him and redone it and in a matter of a few seconds his color came back. So if they hadn't of gotten there as soon as they did he would have died because they didn't even know how to hook him up right.

The last I knew (but I've been away for a while) the doctors at the E.R. were Kaiser, Flowers and Kopp. Are they still there or has there been a great turn-over? Give me the good old days when Dr. Hogan worked the E.R.!

According to TJ's website, there are 4 ER docs. I copied this straight from their site.

Carter, Lee, MD Emergency Medicine
Flowers, Kevin, MD Emergency Medicine
Kiser, Kylend, MD Emergency Medicine
Kopp, Wayne, MD Emergency Medicine

Just so you know: All the specialist(HOSPITALIST & whoever they decide you need to see) will be who you see in Louisville! That's just how it goes these days-nobody knows anything about you when you are admitted anymore reguardless where you go!
