that "fast track" they started at the er is a JOKE!! i went in with a small cut on my hand, was the ONLY person in there and was there for over 4 hours and all they did was clean it, and send me home with a prescription....i know they have to do some paper work, but they are not doing 4 hours worth of paper work for 1 person. what is the deal with waiting hours upon hours in the er for simple things?

It's possible that there may have been other ER patients with more serious problems than someone needing four stitches.

Then feel free to go elsewhere. Four stitches...lol. I wouldn't have even gone in for that. They probably had a good laugh about it. No wonder insurance is the way it is. They will charge $500 or more for those four stitches. $10 for iodine, butterfly closures, and antibiotic ointment.

four stitches on a six yr. old is nothing you want to leave unattended.

My family has always received excellent care at Murray Hospital. The ER staff have been very professional, and the new ER facilities is amazing.

They are notorious for misdiagnosing people. Misdiagnosed my mom for over 4 months as having bronchitis. She finally went to Lourdes and found out she had multiple myeloma (bone cancer). They told her a blood test would have easily shown that and had they caught it sooner it wouldn't have made it to stage 3. She has been in remission now for 3 years but the money and pain that could have been saved can never be replaced.

I still go there for simple things but if it's ever anything serious I make the drive to Paducah or Vandy

I've had a bad experience in every hospital I've ever been to. Medicine is not a perfect science. Did any of you turn in any complaints so that things can improve? You can't please everybody. So how are they to know when you in particular have a problem? Let somebody know. Also, Murray hospital treats people regardless of insurance coverage. I owe my life to that hospital. It's easy to pick out the bad things in people.
