1. Why did Nail have two checks that need to be deposited?
2. Why did the board members handle them? Aren't most funds transfers now done via ETF?

I would think that if the hospital were to re-evaluate its structure, dump that which is unnecessary, trim the dead wood out of the pile, and build upon its strengths that the loans could be paid off, and the hospital could once again become a viable entity. Unfortunately, for that to happen there are going to have to be some very hard decisions (and possibly unpopular ones) made and followed through with

how do you know that checks from nail were deposited by board members? were you a witness or have a snitch at the bank, which bank did this happen at? if fbi is involved then checks are a paper trail but so would a transfer.

Once again a productive discussion is deteriorating into a mudslinging session, which is exactly what the leadership of this community thrives on, and the reason our town is in the sad shape that it is in. Reality #1 Scott Nail is a sleazy SOB who had his way with our town and stuck us with the check. Reality #2 A large majority of the board is guilty of at least neglect and stupidity and some are likely guilty of much more! Many in the current administration are either Nail's groupies or so incompetent that they did not notice that he was ripping us off, and the last thing that this town needs in time of crisis is groupies, wanna be's and self-centered greed heads on a power trip. Reality #3. That place is in serious trouble and unless you want healthcare in Quanah to be limited to what you can get at the Dollar General, you'd do well to show up, ask a lot of questions, and get involved. If the people who use the place don't act interested, then Scott Nail, Tracy Betts and the sleazy board members won. The other option is to roll over and die. I hate to say it, but based on my lifetime here, I figure most of you will roll over, which is why I still say closed within a year.

Carol will not be the CEO as that has already been decided. You had a crook name her the interim, the board has enough sense to not follow that path again.

For an administrator who isn't supposed to be, she seems to be getting awfully comfortable. There was a board meeting, closed door of course, on Friday. What was the outcome? As a community we have a right to know what is going on with our hospital. It is time that they come clean, and if we, the community let this die, Nail and his buddies won. Is that what you really want? One board member is the owner of Tumbleweed, why not stop by and ask what the hell is going on. Good luck finding the others, they don't seem to be around town much. I heard folks are starting to quit, I hope they fix this mess before all the good ones are gone. If we want to keep the doctors and nurses we have, we'd better speak up!

There are several areas that I think the citizens of Quanah and the employees of the hospital need to be informed of. It is so sad that the employees are not being informed of the severity of the financial mismanagement when even STevie Wonder can see there are huge problems. The Christmas party for the employees was a huge expense and not one that everyone could benefit from. Some employees could attend however not everyone could attend because someone has to remain behind and work because after all healthcare is a 24 hour job. The board members should have NEVER been elgible to win anything that was given. Why was it OK to spend so much money for a gambling themed party and how much did this party cost over the years Captain Spendalot and his eager followers were in control. How many of you remember two employees who were terminated by this man and received a hefty severance package? What did they know that Scott wanted silenced? Perhaps they were on to his corruption and he was afraid of what they knew. Then there are problems with the clinic, a person was hired several years ago to work in the clinic and submit third party insurance calims. They relocated their family to come here. During their brief period that they were allowed to keep their job, they had found multiple errors and misbilling of claims. They were processing claims and had generated revenue for the clinic. Soon after they started getting insurance and other third party claims filed correctly, They were locked out of the computer system and were told to leave it alone. Soon after they were terminiated. It seems that the current clinic manager (who is an LVN and not someone trained in billing) and Scott Nail did not want anyone in that clinic who knew how to do the job correctly. Scott Nail also sold the board on buying new cars to be used by the rehab departments and his rationale was that it was less expensive to make payments on these vehicles than it was to pay mileage to the employees who used their own vehicles. Why was Danette Hall given the job at Leslie Manor? Why was Karen Nail employed at Leslie Manor? As the citizens of this county we will continue to pay taxes for the hospital whether it keeps its doors open or not, we will have to pay off the debt that the bank is holding. Speak up Quanah and demand answers. Board are you going to give us the answers that we deserve?

You ask why? Because no one will stand up to them for fear of repercussions. Will the board give the citizens the answers they deserve? No, they will give the answers that they think everyone wants to hear. Did everyone know that the hospital was in trouble - I am thinking that they had an idea. The hospital (Nail) was very adept at getting only what he wanted published in the paper put in the paper (not that I call what we get on a regular basis journalism as there is no impartiality to it). Was there reported billing errors and was an employee fired - yes. Did it change anything?- No. Did the hospital hire employees, have them relocate, and then fire before their 90 day probation period was up?- Yes. Did anyone come to the board meetings and stand up for them?- No. The Board's answer when the employees questioned them - "we do not interfere in the decisions made by Mr. Nail. He has our complete and total backing in all decision-making" -paraphrased as I don't remember the exact verbiage (although that conversation was when Richard Braziel was still alive and on the Board).
This debacle has been many years in the making and now all of a sudden people are acting surprised at the turn of events taking place. Absolute power corrupts absolutely - and the Board is ultimately responsible for the way things are going as they failed to exercise due diligence in their choice of administrator and their failure to oversee his activities, ensuring that he acted with the best interests of the hospital, its employees, and the citizens of Hardeman County at the core of every decision. Should this hospital fail, then the Board and Scott Nail should be held financially responsible for its demise and the debt amassed as a result of their failure to act prudently.

I am not throwing a stone at Richard Braziel - he truly had the best interests of the hospital at heart. The point I was making was that it was before the current make-up of the Board, and pointing out that the Board has, from all appearances, not made any attempt at policing or controlling the actions of its hospital CEO.

Deborah did not make any comment that was disrespectful to Richard Braziel, however he was a voting memeber of the hospital board for several years prior to his death. If at any time he voted in favor of something that Scott Nail presented and he did not research it and become adequately informed, then he in part has contributed to the current trainwreck that exists. I mean no disrespect to Richard however, but for any board member who serves on any elected board if they are not a part of a solution then they must be part of the problem.

I see that the comments posted by Deborah Brownlow and myself earned a clueless mark. It is fine that someone felt my comments were clueless, but I urge you people to pay attention to what Deborah has been trying to tell you for several years. She has asked questions and was often disregarded by Scott Nail. It seems that he was hoping she would disappear and quit asking questions if he would delay getting answers for her. Perhaps some of this current problem could of been avoided if that information had been made available. Perhaps it would not have been such a surprise to learn that there is a financial disaster sitting on the corner of Mercer and 4th street. It is not my desire to see the hospital have to close, I just want there to be accountability by those who contributed to this in any way. You were proud to be affiliated with organization when you thought it was doing well, are you equally as proud to identify yourself with it when it is a mess?

Well everyone go buy a Quanah newspaper or share with one a neighbor, it seems that many of the things that have been brought up on this web site have turned out to be true. Remember when it was mentioned that the FBI had been checking in to the hospital and it was denied that this happened. Well according to the paper this is true. Why in the hell would we want to still pay Scott Nail one cent? I do not understand why the board did not agree to the motion made by Ridley Gibson to stop paying Scott. Has he not taken from us so much already? If this board has denied the involvement of the FBI and ongoing investigation by that agency, and as it is now a known fact what else are they being dishonest about. Why should we believe anything that they say? They should be so ashamed of what they have allowed and condoned. Can this hospital overcome this debt? How much is the debt? Can they be trusted.
