Heard that they was investigated and a whole medical unit was fired because of all of them being caught up in lying.... Shame on you guys...... Always thought this was the best hospital around.. Think I will switch over to Bellfonte... So sad you can't trust anybody...

I quit going to kings daughters when I came home from visiting my husband with Mrsa. It has taken 3 years to get it under control but even still thanks to them I am scarred for life and will always have it.

I always hated that place because even when there was nobody waiting you would still set there for at least 4 hours and be the only person in the waiting room. I love bellefonte even before this happened

It was not a particular unit in trouble, it is the hospital in general. The people who got laid off, which I was one of, had nothing to do with the fraud, we are just unfortunate victims who have had our lives turned upside down due to poor upper management, corruption, and greed. The big buildings and fancy brick work is a mere front for a piss poor operation. Besides that, check out kdmcjobpostings.com you will a lot of the jobs they eliminated posted for applicants now. Cruel mean and heartles!!!!!!!!!!

Wait 'till they send you a $5,000 bill for blood work. When you ask them to specify what exactly they checked for that costs that much, they send you a piece of paper the says Blood Work -------$5,ooo. Sounds like they are use to this, probably send these outrageous bills to the elderly and they get scared and pay it.

I go to Cabell if at all possible. My father was at KDMC for over a week waiting for infection to clear up so he could have surgery. He is a very heavy man, and we have a family history of blood clots. They let him lay in bed the whole time without the compression things on his legs and he developed a blood clot. So, not only did they get another procedure out of him, it took two years before his blood levels were back to normal.

These medical indiscretions can happen at any and every hospital unfortunately. Theres neglect and mistakes in all of them. The care takers are only human, and humans make mistakes. Granted theyr supposed to be professionals but sometimes people/ things slip through the cracks. Its not just KDMC. Sad situation either way.

There was no mistake about the blood work bill. I thought that too until I talked to someone in billing. They couldn't or wouldn't prove to me what was tested that cost that much. It was after a family member passed a kidney stone but the outrageous bill sounded like he just got back from the moon or some NASA mission. I think they just want everyone else to pay for all the fancy additions they keep adding on. It's a hospital not a work of art!

I think the hospital looks nice but they shouldnt make the people pay for it bu boosting the bills. The workers there are rude and dont want to do their jobs. I think everyone there is overpaid and under worked. I just hate the fact that Cabell is probable the best hospital around. I hope they get KDH straitened out so people can go there and get treatment at a decent price.

What a joke! A hospitial in America with decent prices. Too many people that can not afford health care.Medicaid and goverment paid H.M.O's causing Doctors to turn people away due to H.M.O.'s medicaid or medicare only giving permission to go to certain hospitials or doctors patients are usually turned down if test must have prior authorization or medicines that a patient has taken for yrs. by a Dr. are no longer covered under new state medicade rules.One month meds. may be covered next time may not.I myself on medicaid had eye surgery medicaid paid for the surgery but not for anatheists surgical medicine.

Regardless even the best hospitials in the country along with their doctors and nurses make mistakes.But mistakes can cause more health problems or death.And really insurance companies that cover medical experts across the board charge too higher premiums.Cause malpratice is extrmely hard to proove but insurance companies use this excuse any how to raise premiums .In my opinon if a medical expert is prooven too do more harm than good or even death due to a serious mistake then the victim or the family should receive satisfaction in justice as well as finanical awards.If Kingsdaughter is being investigated for fraud we should be hearing it through our local media.

are you the spokesperson for welfare recipients. I work at kdmc and do not think i am rude until some idiot like you wants to run their mouth when i am off the clock, otherwise i usually have to bend over and kiss ass to people like you. what do you consider overpaid? must be more than what the government alots you. i worked hard to earn what i make, from getting my education as an lpn, working full time and earning my associates degree while raising my 2 kids as a single parent. if you are not a nurse then you have no idea what our work is like, just like i don't have any thing to say about your work, that is if you do. I do not disrepect people that have minimum wage jobs etc. at least they are trying and may not have the same opportunities as some but what i can't stand is for someone that my hardworking tax dollars or someone that has no ambition to set there and criticize me, when you have no idea anything about me or the nurse that i am. so to you i say take your family and youself to cabell so that we don't have to take care of unappreciative, demanding, clueless people like you. and get a clue, individual hospitals don't determine prices, they are set on a national average and medicare or medicaid which you are probably more aware of

I hope you didn't lose your job! I know what you mean by having to kiss people's --- all day. I'm a nurse too. These people on here don't have a clue as to what they are talking about. Their SSI check probably bought them a computer for they would have something to do. While we go out to work to pay their bills and pay for their lifestyle.
