For those of you who think the docs are rude you should see how they treat the staff. Everyone is sooo beneath them.

I will never use OMHS anyone can drive to Evansville and get great care. They have competition and the employes have a choice of where they want to work. At OMHS they must do what they must because there is no other hospital in Owensboro to work at.

I'm sure some of the workers care, but having to wait 8 hrs in the er to be seen with a sick child is crazy. I would rather drive to Evansville also

Out of town is the way to go. I went to th ER for side pain and they gave me a shit fir pain . The next night same thing, the next night they did an x ray and my gall bladder had burst. If they hadn't thought I was just a drug seeker the X-ray would have been taken the first night. I had emergency surgery. Recently had to have heart cath at OMHS and I was treated very well. I should say there were ten years between. The only problems I have ever had with the hospital has been the ER.

That's because everyone lies about their pain. People think "I'll just say it's a 10." Newsflash...if you're pain is really a 10, your blood pressure goes up, your heart rate goes up, and your respirations change. Be honest with the people providing your care and you will get better treatment. Oh, and don't give me a load of shit about how "I have a real high pain tolerance." If you have a high pain tolerance the number will inherently be lower. If you're sitting their chilling with your ipad texting away and tell me it's a 10...I'll make damn sure you don't get any dope.

Even with the gall bladder burst I never describe pain as a ten. Kidney stones that's a ten

news flash, OMHS has operated the clinic for years now. They can't see everyone in a day! For the ED, yeah they suck but once you get past them to a regular room the care is much, much better.[/QUOTE]

don't need any negative comments, everyone KNOWS how the Er is, there has been ALOT of things happen, everyone seems to have a story oe know someone who does, My point is, I wish they would show people that come in there some respect, we are paying their paycheck. I never said I didn't have Ins. I do. Dr Z was wrong, I reported him and the staff agreed. So, what I'm saying is if a Dr.(any) treats you bad or down grades you, report them. There are good Dr.s in Owensboro, Dr.Sayed, Dr. Eggers and Dr. Glaser and many more, just say this Dr. is not a good Dr. and I heard he is leaving town soon, and they are hiring two full time in house Dr.s for the Er. And the nurses are good.
Is this doctor young and have black hair? I went in not to long ago, and he interrupted what I was telling him that was wrong. he pulled that on me about having 1 thing wrong. when I would try to explain again, he interrupted me agian. I then raised my voice and said..."IF you will let me finish, I will tel you" He shut up then and listened to me. He was being an ass when he first came in, but when he saw I was having none of it, he chilled out. He did act like notheing was wrong, but he called my cardiologist, and I was admitted.

I heard that the ER sent some person home twice with chest pains. Then, they died. If this is true, I hope they get a great lawyer.

they sent my uncle home from the ER in a taxi, and he did not even make it from the taxi to the front door. He collapsed and died right in his front yard.
