Dr. Dumontier was an excellent physician and person who will be missed by his former co-workers at Good Samaritan Hospital in Mt. Vernon, IL where he use to help us as a Regional Medical Director.

I was admitted to the ER on 8/6 aprox 4pm. I got to my room @ llpm!!! Improving? Not @ Hahnemann.
I got a morphone drip and it was never refilled. Bag remained empty 'until I walked out of room, searching for a nurse. No one ever came when I pulled all the wires & tubing out of machines & moniter read CODE BLUE 9ll & NO ONE CAME in over 35 minutes. When I got to my room @ llpm, it was a living nightmare. Nurses station loud, laughing, constant holelring & noise. Lights on & patient in next bed moaning, groaning while equipment came in & bumped my bed. Nurse said I have to expect all this in a hospital and WHY was I admitted? By l2 30am, I was standing out side of the hospital, alone at Broad & Vine.....near the area a man was shot. I hailed a cab & came home. I was told I would be in the hospital for 3 days for tests. I could not stay in that room for 3 hours...and TENET wants to know WHY there are empty beds...just call me, I'll fill you in. I was admitted to the ER on 8/6 aprox 4pm. I got to my room @ llpm!!! Improving? Not @ Hahnemann.

We nurses do our best in any and all situations we r placed in. We have to look at all aspects, and unfortunate for many... They r drug seekers, of which u get tagged for by ur name. Not saying that everyone is, just it's become such an issue in today's society. However, the issue is the sadness to the loss of a Dr. It is always sad to our nursing field to lose any Dr that we have had contact with. Dr's r overwhelmed and take alot from their patients. Any loss of a Dr in the field is left with a whole of some nature.
