i'll tell you this much, they treat those of us without insurance like we're lepers. i was in there a few months ago because i was pretty sure i had a kidney infection... the doctor (dr. short) came in acting like a complete douche. he talked over me and patronized me so bad it wasn't even funny. i may not have insurance, but i'm not mentally challenged. he ordered bloodwork and a urine test to start things off... the nurse comes in a few minutes later to tell me my bloodwork is fine, and gave me a torodol shot for pain.
about 45 minutes later, the same nurse comes back in, and i'm in tears at this point because of my pain... she rechecks my vitals, and sees my blood pressure is still through the roof... and brings me back a shot of a stronger pain medication.
she then comes back in and tells me they are sending me for a CAT scan to see if there are any kidney stones...
4 hours later, i was diagnosed with "acute muscle strain" and sent home.
the next morning, i couldn't move and had a very high fever... i call up my doctor's office and explain what's going on... they have my bloodwork results from KDMC faxed over, and my white blood count and a couple of other results were off the chart high... it turns out, i had a double kidney infection. why dr. short couldn't see that is beyond me. why he just wrote me off as another pain seeking redneck is also beyond me. i will never go back to KDMC again. as for them getting paid for that unnecessary CAT scan... well, that's just not going to happen. He should not have ordered a test that obviously didn't need to be run. he was just trying to make the hospital more money.
thank god!!!!!!don't come back junkie, go to olbh

ok people i have been to kdmc and have wited hours in pain for help and only waited in back for a short time only to return a day later for the same sh@@. i hav also been there by amblance and was but in a wheelchair in pain only to wait 6 hours more .. and was put in the hosptail for a few days the first 2 days was good the nurses knew what thwy where doing . but one tried to kill me . he tried to mix up my meds in a iv bag that once it hit my blood stream i would hsave been dead . thank god i paid attion to what the other was doing and i know how to ask quetions . as fro the one who made the comment about the welfare in a way you maybe right but in a way you are wrong some of us have no choice whenwe have to have it due to dr and nurses cause the bread winner of the house to lose his job and not able to work any more. so as fro the comment about ssi buying the computer they may be typeing on i can say this mine was nnot bought by welfare money or ssi i went bacjk to school to be the one that but people liek ur a$$ in jail.

if you can read, then you would have read where i said i am not rude until people wanna run there mouth about me or my work ethic when they don't know sh*t about me. I don't "dog" all people on welfare, just the ones that never try to help themselves off the system and just think the world owes them something. come on, how many people do you know that are on the system that the children they have don't wind up on the system and so on and so on. people that need financial assistance while trying to improve their lives is fine by me. most of the obnoxious patients i have ever taken care of and the biggest drug users i have taken care of wind up being on welfare. it is a damn shame when someone can shoot up and get an abcess and get all the pain medicine they want just to get them to shut up but you can have a cancer pt and they are lucky to get enough to help them. after a while that crap takes a toll on a person. this is my biggest complaint though, i have worked since i was 16 and my daughter is now 17 and pregnant, my insurance won't cover her since she became pregnant, i tried to get her a medical card and couldn't because i make too much money according to their money bracket, but what they don't know is that my mother lived with me, my husband lost his job when chrysler cut back, etc. and we couldn't get sh*t from the same damn goverment that takes my money to pay for peopole that won't work. I would have loved to been able to stay home with my kids but i chose to give something better. so, if you think i am a rude biotch then so be it because your opinion don't mean sh*t to me.
Just like i said you are a rude biotch!!! and you show how much you really care for people. I always thought that nurses was a caring person? Wow hope the hell that your never my nurse.. But then again i had a grouchy as* nurse once it was probaly you.... That fat as* nurse on midnite shift that ate pizza and chips all nite and did nothing... lmfao.... Wow some nurses do sit on there as* and get big pay for doing nothing... Ouch! That shot hurt..... Oh by the way being a nurse you should have put your daughter on birth control... Thats what stops teen pregnancy... Did you fail the test on teen pregnancy?? lmao....

Everyone is wasting their time arguing about Kdmc... They will always be there, so stop wasting everyones time...what is done is done... If u don't like kdmc.. Go somewhere else... Noone is making you go there ..,I don't think you will hurt the census too bad. Call olbh and then call kdmc and check each of their census. It's a joke... Kdmc will always be the leader soo get over it... Olbh is a glorified river valley with alot of the same drs..tismo,, canos, kadim, etc... Please if u are going to compare kdmc to someone, at least make it in their class( like comparing a geo to a Cadillac ) it's alot easier to take care of 60 PTS verses 450..... Yes kdmc has had there drama, but at least the dr in the bathroom paid for his medication..

Shame on you all wrote:
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...
you cant trust Bellefonte either,one of their employees released my medical records to my boss (which was her mother) without my permission.

Wrong on some issues nursefan if memory serves me right quiet a few yrs. back a realativy new male Dr. died in Kingsdaughter rest room due to drug use.Every one on welfare is not a drug user this area is made up of a lot of aphalacian people with low education and a lot of people left behind due to this situation and also their are very few good paying back breaking manual labor jobs any where for low educated Americans now days welcome to modern America.They arealso a lot of college educated people all through America with out jobs.I'd say 70 percent of Kings Daughter patients are on goverment paid medical programs just like through Americaa lot of this is due to our goverments failure to it's people.Also in Ohio a healthy head of house hold parent or parents can only receive asissants for up to 3 yrs.Your daughter should have took precautions to insure her not getting pregnant until she could take resonsibilty for a child.
once again, i did not say all welfare recipients were drug abusers. i would be the first to say that many wealthy people are huge drug users, my point was that it is a shame that health care cost rise due to the amt of emergency room visits and hospitilizations by and of people with no coverage or medical cards. take for example, the person standing in the middle of the road with a sign that reads "will work for food" and they happen to be standing in front of a mcdonalds that has a sign "now hiring". why not apply? i am not bashing all people on welfare, only those that are perfectly content living that way and seek no other way to make it. i have no problem say, with a single mother with children and a deadbeat father to get help with foodstamps, housing and whatever else she may be entitled to, as long as she is trying to help herself as well for example working or going to school. all one has to do is come up with some mental or emotional problem as an excuse to not have to work. it is those that i have aproblem with because they are taking away from that mother and her kids and our elderly on medicare etc. by the way for the record, i did have my daughter on birth control, but it is not fool proof.

wow, were you so sick that you could be at the nurses station or lounge all night to know what she was doing. oh it was probably cause your nasty as* was at the nurses station all night and right on time asking for your pain medicine. and i did have my daughter on birth control but maybe you did because you should know that contraceptives are not 100% effective.

if you have ever used a condom dumbas* then that is considered a form of birth control. is it not labeled a contraceptive? and did you interpret what i said when am not dogging people on welfare if they are trying? my daughter has worked since she first turned 16. what the f is your problem unless you are one of those low life waste of oxygen people i have been referring to. i think that most people that are on welfare that truly need it would agree that there are people that abuse the system and it only takes away from them, so what is your deal?

People there is NO perfect hospital....There will always be something that happens at any hospital! And also ALL hospitals bill ya big bills for things! Not just KDMC....I know KDMC is a way better and bigger hospital than Three Rivers Medical center in Louisa,I don't feel safe goin there,i'd rather go KDMC.I had my baby at KDMC,they treated me very good and my doctor was Nice and caring.I would go back there...All i'm saying is...All Hospitals are goin to bill ya for everything,it dont make kdmc a bad place for that when they all do it! I'm for one glad we have a big hospital like KDMC for all they have to help people with the heart and cancer and even thou i have to drive over hour to get there its well worth it!

i am losing my mother in law to lung cancer and bone cancer. We are losing her faster than we should b because of kings daughters. she has been using them for many yrs, has made many er visits for back pain, migranes, general pain. the preformed numerous exrays and catscans., and found no cause. when she finally decided to go tp stmarys for a 3wk headache,(in june) she discovered she had severe lung cancer which caused incurable bone cancer. the drs at stmarys also determined she has had the lung cancer for at least 4 yrs. also the bone cancer had eaten holes n her skull shoulders arms spine and has now spread to hips. they obtained her past xrays and can clearly see the cancer in all of them. but guess what, she (at the time) had no medical ins and little income..now i wonder y they '' couldnt find a cause''. btw she is now in the hospital with double pneumonia kidney failure and liver failure we r not gonna have her much longer. please pray for her.
