i was just wondering about what other people think about having a heart catheterization at williamson memorial hospital...it is a dangerous exam and so many things could happen that they as a facility are not prepared for...i was just curious about peoples opinions...ive heard so many terrible things and for me personally i dont think i would have that type of testing done there...i mean you have to go outside and climb in a building that looks like the back end of a semi truck...ive heard that they arent prepared for actual emergencies..and that they take people there who need and should be taken elsewhere...me myself i would rather have something like that done at a facility where if something does go wrong or if they do find something...it can be fixed right then and there..i mean williamson memorial has to send a person out by a helicopter or an ambulance with that thing sticking out of your artery...which by the way a person could bleed to death within minutes if it should come out...i just want some opinions on as to why or why not someone would or wouldnt go there....thanks a bunch...

How many people have you heard of to die there? NONE!! Dr. Paknik(?) what ever his name is, does it everyday. He starts in the morning and quits about 2:00 in the afternoon to go to his office and see patients. Hes found things that couldn't be found at Kings daughter, and CAMC with peoples hearts. I've heard great things about him. You won't bleed to death with a sand bag, if it does come out, it CAN be fixed and bleeding under control. No ones died yet there from his work. Look at the other BIG hospitals records. People die! I don't know if he does stints or not, but he will/can clean your pipes out in no time.

did you kno the good doctor doesnt even sho up at the hospital until after 10am and if he doesnt feel like working he just says so and reschedules everything....i kno they dont use sand bags at all...if you dont have anything wrong and he doesnt use a plug of some sort...he doesnt use them on everyone mind you...his crew uses manual pressure and sometimes the bleeding doenst stop...sometimes it bleeds out under the skin...and from what i have heard recently...there has been a few coverups...williamson memorial doesnt want the truth told about their big money maker.....and people shouldnt die from having a diagnostic heart catheterization..which is the kind that williamson memorial does...the kind that is done in other places are different....and i kno that we shouldnt beleive everything we hear but everything i have been told comes from three people that work there...and the horror stories they have told me would shock you...and yes they are reliable sources...ive never known these people to lie and ive known them all my life...it would shock and disgust you if you knew all that went on inside that hospital and the heart catheterization truck...ive even witnessed a couple of incidents while visiting a family member there...i seen a nurse with own eyes drop a patients medicine in the nasty hospital floor...she picked them up and put them back in the little cup and went in and handed them to the patient anyway...what does that tell you?? and yes i did report it...i wrote what i seen down and put it in one of those comment boxes as well as told another nurse on the second floor...it scares me at the thought of giving someone medicine after its been dropped in the floor...think of the germs and nastiness on it...even if the floor looks clean...we all kno it isnt...i mean its a hospital for goodness sake....

I don't know where you get your info. But you're dead WRONG. Go somewhere else then. he does a great job, and they do use sands bags. I asked today. You are misinformed. So, again, Go somewhere else. Theres NO cover-ups. LOL!!

First of all, you need to know why sandbagging is used, next, you need to know exactly what happens after a heart cath. Manual pressure is the correct way for pressure to be held and you're right, bleeding doesn't always stop but there are other measures of which I won't discuss because it sounds as if you don't know what you're talking about to begin with

Dr. Patnik or however u spell it, I heard was a great doctor. So I went to him. He told me I was too young to have heart problems at the age of 20 (5 years ago) and laughed but then proceeded to say that I did have two leaky heart valves. That is the reason I stopped going to him. I wouldn't go to Williamson Memorial but you will have that risk anywhere you go. We only go to the hospitals here for general sickness, not major surgeries. It is however up to you because some of the staff actually is really great with patients and know what they're doing in our experience. By the way, the E.R. sucks also. I waited 5 hrs for them to tell me my daughter had a drug allergy and then they gave her another medicine that she was allergic to and sent her home. (The nurse didn't want to send her home, but the DR did) I understand that you can have a reaction like that when you've just had one. But my child swelled up like a balloon and had welps everywhere. If I take my children to the E.R., I may start going to ARH. The children's doctor prefers WMH, but my husbands insurance coverage is better at ARH, AND they were really good w/ my son when he almost cut his finger off. WMH was great with my little girl when she had to be hospitalized though. So see it is up and down, you never know.

if u don't like the dr or the hospital, go sum place else, plenty to chose from, and if you go sum other place, u won't get the great treatment u get on the hill, we treat people like family, that's why people keep driving up on the hill to see us and why we make more money then any place around

Going somewhere else?
Yes that is exactly what I should have done but considering she was having a really bad allergic reaction to a medicine, I'm sure I was going to drive another 1hr 1/2 to Charleston risking her well being. If you work in a hospital, you know that an allergic reaction can be life threatening. I as a parent and having some medical college background know that myself. Not to change the subject, but wasn't it Williamson Memorial's ambulance service that wasn't getting paid not too long ago? Just curious. I remember saying, the service varies from each visit in so many words. I didn't say it was a bad hospital. Neither ARH nor WMH are perfect (nor horrible) and my family goes there for general things. But if I was to have a major surgery I wouldn't have it at either one. Just a personal opinion and last time I checked, I still have freedom of speech. I had both my children by c-section (somewhat of a major surgery) at Logan. The staff was wonderful both times. I loved both experiences there.

Just quoting myself in saying there is good and bad in all hospitals.

shows how much u know, the cath trailor IS OUTSIDE and at the farside of the hospital next to the hill, and many start-up cath programs start out ith the cath lab in a trailer. The MRI is also outside IN THE BACK of the hospital, also in a trailer that is rented and hauled in every week.

But what's wrong with that? 85% of people in this area live in trailers (or worse), so whats the big deal about getting medical treatment in one? It should make you feel right at home!

WMH does not own and has never owned a ambulance service, they call STAT 9 times out of 10 and others when STAT is not available, so take your price griping up with them. I got some freedom of speech to, honey.

Didn't say you weren't entitled to your freedom of speech. I'm not taking my price griping up with anyone. I did say that coverage is better at ARH according to my husband's insurance which is through Massey. We can afford both WMH and ARH. Bed side manners has alot to do with how comfortable you are in a hospital. You should read what I write because I think you are just wanting a reason to argue with me. I said there is good and bad in all hospitals. I also said that WMH was great with my little girl when she has to be hospitalized. As far as ambulance, I wasn't griping. It was in the newspaper. I was only asking a question.
