If you like waiting in an ER for 8 HOURS to be seen its a great place...or if you like having your 2 year old in the ER misdiagnosed stating that she is fine then she ends up on the operating table a week later then yeah Im all for it...My family only goes to Knoxville for any kind of medical issues even if I only live a few minutes from this so called Hospital (JMH)

Sorry you had a bad experience, but as for me and my family we've had nothing but very good care there.

Bad can happen at any hospital even the best of them...like you said youve had nothing but good and unfortunately Ive had the bad end of the deal...Im not sure what the point of the whole forum is but if its to make a decision whether or not you should seek any medical help at this location...I say try it for yourself and make your own opinion of it

I had went to the ER in morristown 3 days straight and they wouldn't do anything, although I knew something was wrong and told them that, they just sent me home. I couldn't take it anymore and I knew something was wrong, so a friend told me to try the hospital here. I went and they immediately sent me to UT where I was taken to the OR. I was told if I had listened to the Dr in morristown I wouldn't be here. So I'm very thankful for this hospital and the staff that was working.

I have nothing but bad experiences in the ER. With my husband's health, we have been there several times. Not one caring nurse or receptionist.... not only that one nurse was so rude one time by saying we had been there long enough (we were just waiting on the doctor to come in with the Xray results) It wasnt our fault that xray was backed up and that the results were not available to the doctor. Then the doctor reviewed the results with us. Then we were given prescriptions and hastily the nurse reviewed the at home instructions with us We were then told to pick up our paperwork at the receptionist desk. We then watched the rude nurse go into the room behind the receptionist area and eat a donut as we picked up our paperwork. I cannot in good conscience recommend this ER to anyone.

I am sorry for those who have had a bad experience at our hospital. Unfortunately, go to any hospital and there will always be a burned out nurse and a wait. Unfortunately for Mercy, we have had major cutbacks and there is a good chance that the "mean" nurse was working an extra shift so that at least someone would be there to help you. I don't condone ill behavior but I can say that for just as many people who don't recommend our hospital, there are equal numbers who come to us and state that they have been to other hospitals and our hospital found something they did not. Maybe those who can't tolerate the wait as bad as it is, can drive a little farther to get the care they are seeking so that the wait won't be so long for those who can't make the drive for whatever reason. Again, forgive our hospital for the lack of care you received and the "push you through the cattle shoot" care you received. I hope that you do not have to experience ANY ER again and that you remain healthy and happy.

As a Morristow2n resident, we have no choice but to seek health care services in other areas. We have been extremely pleased with the diagnostic and surgical staff at Jefferson. Other than a silly billing issue our treatment has been excellent. We continue to use Mercy in the Knoxville area now and are equally pleased.

Thank you for this comment. We dedicate a large portion of our lives to caring and it is nice to know that we are appreciated. Thank you so much and I hope you continue to use JMH.
