you are dead wrong although you sound like a current laughlin staff. I worked at laughlin no I did not get fired lol I left and as far as Takoma I do not work there but I was a patient and I can say I was treated wonderfully and I had a team of three doctors at any given day. One day when your a patient as we all will be you will hope that some one will not be too lazy to change your diaper, or give you a bath. I can tell you when I was leaving in transition time from one hell of a hospital to a hell hole and fast. I had a patients family take me out in the hall and told me some thing so deep about the treatment one of my so called co workers were doing to them I had to walk off and that was the week I quit. I love being a nurse and my patients get 100 percent of me. When I close my eyes I want god to know I did my job well. Nurse is in the heart not in the wallet

well that is a part of laughlins problem they got rid of all the cna's to save money thats when the word nurse went out the window. When I worked at laughlin we had four cna's for each wing and they did all the beds feeding and changing. The RN's said I did not go to college to change poop. Well they were to big and too good to do nurse work. Some thought they came out of nursing school got there wings and all they would do is walk around with a pill cup and chase the doctors. Well come on, we all know that. It was a rude call for them when they had to touch a patient and dirty there hands. So when the cna's laft they did make the LPN's do the dirty work but they did not like that so now no one does it. Good luck patients with out CNA's no one to do the work.

play nice stupid is a harsh word and the most ignorant thing is you are quick to judge some ones education over one word. Careful cause god can take that little small brain and give you illness that can put you on other level of life. LOl just how I believe this hospital is already crumbling it has for years. It just takes some time but with out the patients it is not a hospital it is a facility that one day will be empty. Laughlin we know you read this as do your nurses and we hope that you really look at your staff and make changes. From the time a person hits the ER and the ER is too full of gossip and drama and cheating, to the time they get left in a room in ER for hours while every one up stairs is complaining to go down stairs to wheel you up to the time you are put in a room and no one will answer your simple questions like am I NPO to the lazy staff that sit at the computers charting or pretending to chart. To the gossip in the nurse station about family members of patients. I hope you are really snooping this is one time you need to Noah.

The care at Laughlin Hospital is nonexistent. They do not give baths, they give you a bag of baby wipes and tell you to do it yourself. If you get your bed changed you are lucky. The management there don't care about anything but public image and themselves. Most of the upper management have children sent to college to fill management postions so it is all kept in family. Noah Roark is running the place in the ground and no one cares. If you know what is good for you don't go there. Several long term employee have recently lost their jobs and a head nurse was recently replaced so daddy's daughter could have the job. Laughlin Hosital does not deserve being "Greeneville's Hospital"
Many issues with Noah. Hopefully they will all come to light soon.

Many issues with Noah. He knows what they are. Maybe he might choose to retire before they come too light very soon.

I actually am a tech and I work at JCMC(4 years) and I know for a fact that the aides/nurses did as litter as they can get away with! Almost crossing the line into neglect. My father was at Laughlin for a G.I bleed and he was in the floor from 4am until we came in at 6am! I had him transfered to the VA the second I found home and he got the care he wasn't getting from Laughlin!
Sorry to hear that I hope he's okay :(

If you have problems or complaints, HR has an open door policy and he's always ready to listen. He's very approachable so why not let HIM know what's on your mind? Coming here to complain won't resolve your issue.
I did let him know. He is not the only one I let know.

lmh sucks, my mother was on life support for four months, she had a stage 4 bed sore due to their lack of care, when we chose to take her off the support they moved her to the end of the hall in a room and made no effort to speak with the family to comfort us in anyway, even tho lmh sucks they are far better than Takoma, I was in Takoma and begged for a drink of water and was told no, not until I get an xray on my arm? from what I know water doesn't hurt xrays, I got my clothes on and walked out, called my insurance company and refused to pay the bill.

You hit the nail on the head. Everything that has been said concerning him is the truth. He is nice to your face but once your back is turned watch out for the daggers!

If you think hospitals and the health care system is bad now......just wait until they are all being run by the new Obamacare system! You haven't seen anything yet. You won't have to worry about the care you get IN the hospitals, because you won't be going to a hospital unless some government board decides you will be allowed...not your physician. The treatment you will be allow to have will also be determined by the gov. not your doctor.

Some of u r right. There r nurses and aides at lmh that are lazy and dont care. I am but one of many nurses there and sad to say that a few good people cant change all yhe problems. We r out-numbered. Every night we are short staffed
Most of the time with no aide at all and every one of us will get up to our elbows in shit and vomit and whatever else comes along. But as the saying goes....we r there to help u and heal u not to kiss your ass! Countless times we have pts who are totally capable of taking care of themselves but will hit the call light to have us pull up thier blanket. Or have their entire family stay with them and constantly ask us to bring them food and drinks. Have a family make a complaint against you because u didnt answer the call light fast enough when theres only two if u on the entire floor and u were tied up with a dying patient!! Then u get called to the carpet and wrote up for it. Or have a drug addict threaten your life because u cant give them as much pain medicine as they want. I would ask all of you to spend one hour walking in the footsteps of any nurse or aide at laughlin becore you come on here and talk about how bad your care was. You're probably one of those who needed your blanket pulled up. Get real!!
