I read in the article about Phoebe entering into partnership with Dorminy. I pray that they get Doctors and Nurses etc.... that care about a patient health and not Doctors etc... that only care about a paycheck. Phoebe Putney is an excellent hospital, the Doctors and the staff take pride in their job and care for their patients as if it was a family member. I would hate for Dorminy to poison their name. The Nurses and the staff on the floor are more concern with gossipping with each other than the care of their patients at Dorminy. You go to the ER,having stroke like symptoms they give you something for pain,having problems breathing they tell you immediately its stress.What I listed above is not false it really happen. All I am saying is the staff that is there need to be evaluated and test.

The partnership with Phoebe is to benefit the city of Fitzgerald. There is nothing wrong with most of the Doctors, nurses and/or other staff at Dorminy. No matter where you go you will find people who want to be paid and not do their jobs. It happens in ALL forms of industry. Dorminy is no different.
The attitude of the persons who use Dorminy Medical Center for their healthcare makes a big difference in the attitude of the workers at this facility. Most feel as if their healthcare should be given to them free of charge and develop attitudes with the staff when that doesn't happen. Fitzgerald is a small community and we need this hospital.
The best thing this community could do to help Dorminy become a better facility is to support it in all endeavors. I have been a patient at Dorminy, Phoebe, and Tift Regional and believe me when I say it is no different at any of these places. The other two aforementioned hospitals have more to offer in the way of equipment and services, but some the staff have the same attitude. Don't be too critical of Dorminy. It has came a long ways. And is trying to improve daily. Give them a chance to make amends for any infractions made years ago. No one is perfect, and no Hospital is perfect!

Do you really know what stroke-like symptoms are? Or are you just thinking the person is having a stroke? The doctoers and nurses are trained to tell if someone is having stroke-like symptoms. Also there are test that are performed to make sure the person is or is not having a stroke. And by the way a person can experience pain when having a stroke.
As far as the breathing goes, is it possible the person to whom you refered was having a case of anxiety, which can affect breathing patterns, or maybe even hyperventilating (breathing to rapidly)? I would be glad to find out my loved one or friend didn't have anything seriously wrong with them rather than blame the hospital staff for treating the persons pain or anxiety.

I talke offense this this. I work at DMC now and I would put our nurses up against any. We do the best we can with what we have. Our patients get the best care and service around. If you were told it was stress my guess is it WAS! I have been to large hospitals and I know our staff is as good or better than any.

I am just as tired of Star as everyone else on this site. But do you really think Mary Frances Cantrell would use phrases such as "dookie shoot" and "and you like it in the tail hole"? I think Star is an immature, uneducated, low-life with the intelligence level of a gnat! I don't know Mrs. Cantrell personally, but I certainly think she has more intelligence than this idiot Star! Maybe Star hasn't defended the remarks about her being MFC because she hopes as long as everyone thiks thats who she is, it will keep her REAL identity hidden!

Most of the nurses at Dorminy are like most of the nurses at EVERY hospital...doing the best they can. Until you've worked with too few nurses, too few CNAs and too few secretaries, please be kinder with your opinions. Nursing isn't a glamorous job. If you're doing it, it's usually because you care for your patients and have a "heart" to serve.

I'm from the Albany area, and I share similar sentiments with the majority of the people from that area: Phoebe is a power hungry, money loving health care facility. If DMC was in that big of a bind, they should have partnered with Tift Regional.

Yea to "Opinions Are Like". I get so sick and tired of people dishing our local hospital and its staff. They do a great job with what they have to work with. They deal with people who are sick and families that are scared or put out because they are having to take time from their selfishness to look after a family member. Show a little respect and gratitude to those who do not even know you but are wiping your butt and feeding your face. As far as Pheobe..I think they will help Dorminy and our community in a great way..money for equipment, training for staff, a better emergency room (hopefully), and last of all MAYBE A FEW JOBS! Goodness knows we need some of them.
Tifton would have been a good partner also but that evidently is not an option. I guess we will just have to wait and see but in the meantime I will try not to have an attitude when you are at the hospital and I empty your bedpan and wipe your butt.
yea yea

Well I have spent some time at Dorminey and I think the Doctors their do a fine job as well as a short few of the Nurses. Them nurses in the ER need to go. Bad attitudes always talking about patients and staff. And you can even hear it from the exam rooms. How they are not going to do this and that. If you don't like you're job leave. You would think a Nurse would be a professional. and this only goes for a some

as long as the Parrishes are not involved it'll be fine. The Kevorkians could operate a hospital better than having 3 parrishes.

Tift Regional doesn't have the resources to turn Dorminy around. Say what you like about Phoebe, but they are a well run business. If you just want cheap healthcare, I'm sure we can find a tailor or barber to stitch you up...
