They have had a lot of layoffs at blfd. regional hospital. So you know the quality of care goes down with this. Don't expect anything else. Besides this is s for profit hospital. I am sure the nurses are feeling the crunch's from all this stress. I can say this from experience. When employees are laid off the work load is then shifted to the other eployees.

Actually, You Will NOT get your money back. You may get some adjustment to your bill, true, but will not get money back.
Also...what types of doc's did you visit? Did you go to a doc in the box or did you faithfully follow up regularly with your doctor or did you just go on occasion when you had problems?
What changes did you make on your own behalf to identify your problems?
Why would you go through "Seven years of incapacitating diarrhea that three primary care doctors, five colonoscopies, and two GI doctors couldn't solve" before either asking or demanding that you be referred to a specialty clinic? I am very happy for you that you are better, and sorry that you had to go thru that, but geez...if you knew that there was a problem why not go somewhere sooner?

For all these services, I can get my money back if not satisfied , it should be the same with healthcare. I have been misdiagnosed several times. Seven years of incapacitating diarrhea that three primary care doctors, five colonoscopies, and two GI doctors couldn't solve. My nightmare finally ended when I picked up a copy of all my records when moving. I found the cause in my labs. I was positive for H-pylori. After moving to another state, I took my labs to a new doctor, was treated, and the nightmare was finally over.

The GI doctors were the specialists. After you go through that many doctors, you assume its one of those problems without an answer. I am not ignorant, and have been a nurse for 22 years. Of coarse I followed up, and learned to live on antidiarrhea meds. If I hadn't been knowledgeable, I would still be suffering. I realize Drs are busy, but my ins. should have had to pay for testing or visits after someone overlooked the results.

Nope, it shows you need to get a job and work like the rest of us, and pay for outrageous insurance, just like the rest of us. Free healthcare is a thing of the past, get over it.

<quoted text>wrong! I'm calling you on it. You go to Brmc and before you get your product/service they want money...... You finally get service; and it sucked!, you get an account that you have 30 days to pay in full or it gets turned to collections. All of the services and products you mentioned many people have money for. Most of our community does not have thousands for a one time event and god bless you if you have several health issues. Go to PCH, you can make low monthly payments for as long as needed and workers don't get laid off.

Rich daddy?........ You do realize that this "daddy" has had a few hospitals go under right? Maybe sugar daddy would be a better term because this hospital is out there giving fatherly love but rather all but raping the community in which it serves

The hospital isnt "raping" anyone, if people cant and dont want to pay their bill, go elsewhere. PCH has a charity fund. Im so glad the hospital is seeing less "losers" now that some rules are in place. It is the same all over the county, free treatment is available at clinics. Area people have almost sucked the life out of the hospital, and pillheands, and whiney ass people who go to the hospital for the stupidest things. You know a patient dont have 7 "emergency" things happen to them every month like the frequent flyers try to make you think. So it hurts to piss, go see your damn Dr. Your kid is running a temp, go see your damn Dr. You have a rash, go see your damn Dr! Medexpress is there, utilize it too! The hospital is for people who are friggin sick and I am glad they are! Im glad that is someone has a bad accident, they can go there, or if someone is very sick, they can go there. But these other whiney ass people need to get a job, like it or not. Insurance is expensive, welcome to 2012! People everywhere work so they can have health insurance for their family. Hopefully one day Medicaid will fail, then everyone can move and find a job! Sick of you whiney ass people!

The trend with some employers are to hire people as part-time or as needed. Especially corporate companies. One big reason: they keep gost down by not having to offer insurance. Finding a job is not only an issue but finding one that offers healthcare coverage.
Has anyone thought that the real reason the republicans don't want the bill to pass? How about this though although someone will surely reply with a dissenting response....? The ones who can't afford the high cost of healthcare in the private sector will slowly die. Sounds like a calculated genocide plan by the republican campaign.
Far fetched idea? Think about it.

Ummmmm....pretty sure that a hospital bill 9 times out of 10 is much more expensive than everything you listed above. FAIL.

BRMC is not worthy of being called a hospital since the new company took over. The hospital is dirty and understaffed. How can a nurse give good care when they have patients on one side of the hall on a floor to take care of. There are some good nurses at the hospital, but they can't take care of all these patients and give good care. I don't blame the nurses - I blame the management of the hospital. I have been told from very good sources that they fire people for no reasons and then call people who are on workers comp and beg them to come back to work because they are short and then fire them when they return to work. The big shots walk around the hospital like it's the best place in the world. They don't want to listen to anyone to has a complaint. Now they are doing work on the front of the hospital and can't even afford to keep the cafeteria open for people who have to stay with their loved ones because of the care. Personally, my family has started going to Princeton Hospital. We have received good care and the hospital is much cleaner. I feel for the staff at BRMC that have been there a long time. Believe me, it probably won't be long before you are gone.
Been there too

Hate to spoil it for you, but I was a nurse there before the new company took over, and staffing was always like that on med-surg, pt's scattered everywhere! And that is why so many people left BEFORE the new company took over, it's been understaffed forever, only difference is now they are making money instead of losing it. The company's history speaks for itself, they are the most successful hospital company in the US. As far as the cafeteria being closed on weekends and after busy hours, its more cost effective the way it is now. Glad you go to PCH now, and I dont even work at BRMC anymore!
