There is currently a petition for a lawsuit against Lourdes Hospital for fraudulent practices. The investigation involves unjustified psychiatric commitment by the hospital in an attempt to increase profit. The investigation, so far, has found that adolescents and adults have been hospitalized for psychiatric treatment they didn't need.

Several Lourdes employees have been contacted. One was quoted as saying "I'm not sure insurance companies know what's going on, but they're being swindled. And there is nothing I can do about it".

Lourdes does not have adolescent psych services. It is stricly an adult unit and you must be 18 to be admitted. You should know your facts before you put them out.

First let me say that I'M TRULY SORRY if you work there and feel offended by this situation. But rest easy - Lourdes is but one organization on a list of thousands of offenders - and this potential lawsuit is not directed at the honest, hard-working professionals at hospitals, but at the greedy underbelly of bureaucracy that is trying to gain profit at the price of human lives. Actions by businesses such as these taint the work of the wonderful, caring staff working at said facility. One small example of Lourdes' inefficiency: a psychiatrist, Dr. Mohammed El-Awady, was retained for a period of time at Lourdes and terrorized many patients during his stay there. He was also extremely difficult with other employees, and as a result fired for his unprofessional behavior. He has a similar history, which was probably why they considered him - they 'got him cheap'. Dealing with 'professed caregivers' like Awady cause potential patients to lump the caring psych professionals together with this type of poor work ethic under an umbrella of mistrust, causing people to refrain from seeking truly needed help for fear they will again be caught up in a fraudulent situation.

We do have our facts. Lourdes is but one organization on a list of thousands. But therein lies a part of the problem - the fact that many of these places have crossed the line in many ways, for example, committing people near the age of consent.

This is a world-wide problem, not one originated in the tiny town of Paducah, KY. It is being addressed everywhere by people who are tired of their loved ones being caught up in a quagmire of greed under the guise of stating they are attempting "to be the preeminent provider of the highest quality medical care" in this area.

Here's a thought. No matter how the triage nurse treats you or your family, don't raise your voice to them or act out in any way because that mental ward is what keeps that hospital running. when they aren't full, they will add you to their beds on any indication of odd activity. It's a fact.

Or just go to WBH.

Its no wonder all things Lourdes are going downhill

Vera is this you? God knows you was a Muslim lovin El-Awady, take it from the behind lovin ass nurse! And whats so sad is yes that place is soooo full of fraud that it makes my skin crawl. But Human Resource Manager Kent lying ass Linniger, covers up for all the bad staff, and we all know how they lie and try to get rid of the good staff! Insurance Fraud is commited everyday by the Behavior Health Unit, and i hear Angie the Coding and payroll Fraud Queen is still doing the dirty work there. so if your gonna tell a story, tell it right and tell the truth, its been going on for years, and the staff that actually tried to do the right thing by the patients were bullied out, or lied on by bitches like you VERA, and Ann, and Angie and Kent Leinnager, and his side kick liar co worker Julie. I hope all of you all get pulled in and questioned about inappropriate admissions,Insurance coding fraud, and Sexual inappropriatness of Patients! burn in hell Vera!

Uh .... Reality Check - We have one problem with the base foundation complaint of this thread. Lourdes hospital is a NOT FOR PROFIT hospital. So, any argument actions are taken to increase profit is basically financially impossible. NOT FOR PROFIT is a choice of the caregiving organization and while it does not address other issues cited, it does make any 'actions for profit' comments financially invalid and by default impossible.

I'm so sure you have all the inside information. The only way to know all that is if you work along side these perpetrators and are lending them a helping hand.

Just now got back on topic to check out latest pertinent news, and FIRST let me say - I'm a man, so NO I'm not VERA! LOL Ok, back to the subject:

We know about the others - Ann came to mind immediately, changing documents when they got to her station if she caught them. I can't think of any others right off the top of my head, but let me repeat - not this VERA!! But thanks for the heads up!

Gina Beck is desperately trying to stop this insanity. God help her.

They can't volunteer any information they already have, but ANYONE who has information on these ongoing fraud charges should feel totally free to ante up. Your information will be kept completely confidential, and will possibly stop great injustice in an undeserving town.
