Western Baptist Hospital has some of the rudest staff i have ever seen in a hospital. I had been there all night in a waiting room waiting on someone in my family to deliver there first child and my 3 year old and my 11 month old babies were sleeping about 7 this morning when a nurse came in turned on the lights and said everyone get out so the cleaning lady can clean. I was in there by myself with my kids and they expected me to just get up and get out waking up my children. I told them i couldn't carry both of them so they expected me to leave my 3 year old in there in the chair sleeping and me get out. I don't know what kind of hospital them people are running, but that was the most disrespectful, rudest hospital that i have ever been too. I hope i never have to step foot in that hospital again.

I too have seen this out of the staff there more times than i can count. I have lived in the area for many, many years and the nurses can be so rude that it is unbelievable unless you have witnesses. I wonder if they would like to be charged with something for trying to make you leave a child unattended. They are awful. Many years ago i started going to Lourdes and i never have had that to happen to me there. The nurses at WBH are so full of themselves. I have even reported some of them to the director of nurses. One time i was receiving cancer treatments there(WBH). One on the nurses called me at home jumping me for getting blood work done there and at my primary care physicians. I didn't know i wasn't supposed to.Just following orders. She yelled at me until my husband told me to hang up on her. I was already a mess from the ordeal of having cancer. Finally, the nurse said,"you won't be able to go anywhere else and get treatment because you are on welfare right?"She also told me if i didn't quit going to my primary care doc that they weren't going to see me anymore. I love my doc and have been going to him for 6 yrs at this time.I have very good private insurance and i told her so. We make just under 100,000.00 per yr. She began to stutter and realized she had just chewed on someone for about 20 min. who wasn't on welfare. Needless to say i reported her to her office and to my doc. I never went back. My new doc is just fine. He knows how to treat ppl with respect.

Are you stupid or something? She said she was in the WAITING ROOM. OBVIOUSLY, no one would use it as a hotel. She clearly stated she was waiting on a family member to deliver a baby and they asked her to leave to CLEAN...DUH. It was rude and is unacceptable no matter how you look at it or who it was. The appropriate thing to do would have been to help her with the babies into another room or area while that one was cleaned. FURTHERMORE, I am not certain these kinda people would save your life if they could with behavior like this. Anywho, you are so far off topic with your brown nosing that it is ridiculous.

Western is the best hospital but I hate going there..They are such money grubby people..After making payment arrangements with them on a 6 thousand dollar bill i got another bill and they wanted to make more payment arraingments after i told them i could only make so many payment arragements with them and that i would gladly make those arrangments once i got this one bill payed off they turned us over to collections while we are still make payments on one bill and had us garnished..I for the life of me don't see why they couldn't add the other bill to the one i pay one btw i never have been late or missed a payment with them and they still turned me over..I hate dealing with them..

This is also a common practice with them. I have experienced the same thing many years ago. This is another reason i go to Lourdes.
I would like to let you in on a little info. You can pay who you owe, by law. If they put you in the KGB...i mean the credit bureau, you can still pay the hospital. It's the law. They have to let you pay the person the bill was actually owed to and then they pay the nasty KGB.(Credit Bureau). I did this with my moms bills recently who had cancer and they were treating her the same way. I am so sorry they have done this to you, too. This type story has been told to me by 100 people at least.
I owed Lourdes for cancer bills and they let me make reasonable payments to them and i never had one of them to turn me over to the credit bureau while i was making payments. WBH, not so much. They did to me what they did to you,but it was many years ago. Thats why i go to Lourdes. Love Lourdes.

hey TLO you prove what i said. U and the rest of ya at that hospital need some manners school. U just proved 1000 percent what i said in the first place, u r one of the most ridiculous person along with that thing that calls herself a nurse, that i have ever seen in my life. The best thing u can do is reread what i said in the first place and then keep ur mouth shut because aparently someone that has a little (and it don't take much) sense about them needs to be with u to spell it out to you.

I have had a horrible experience with Lourdes emergency room.
Every hospital has its issues, but Western is far away the best in the region.

After a recent auto accident my insurance adjuster needed to know which hospital was utilized. When I told him Western Baptist he stated that the bills would be a bit more expensive because, they are the most expensive n the region.

WBH might be the best in the region, but it's not saying much for the region! Not only are they rude and self centered, they have no bedside manner to speak of. A hospital is supposed to be a place of comfort and mercy, instead, they have somehow gotten the impression everyone owes them something. Not only are they rude to the patients, visitors, and everyone else, they treat thier employees like SH!T. Baptist? It should be against the Southern Baptist Convention's policy to allow them to tag themselves as "Baptist"...or any other denomination. Simply put, just call it our Lady of the Almighty Dollar General Hospital.....seems to fit...

Some of those PR people they steal from news channel six need to get on here and read some of the posts on this thread about WBH. I doubt it will do any good but at least their commercials can be refuted with the truth from the general public. I have never ever seen such rude nursing staff in my life and i have visited the following hospitals:
Deaconess in Evansville, Indiana, The Childrens Hospital in St Louis, Harrisburg, Il. Marion, Il, Carbondale, Il. Union County Hosp., St Francis in Cape Girardeau, Mo. as well as Lourdes in Paducah. No one at any of these hospitals was anything other than helpful to me. Rude is all Western Baptist Hosp. is...and heartless toward the working poor.
