I hope we can get our old hospital back, with better service and care, which include our own doctors in the hospital.

Are you being racist when you say your own doctors? If you demean the contributions of physicians from elsewhere providing service in the community nothing more shameful!!!
You might as well be KKK
If ou are a doctor here at crmc disclose ur name so people know openly your belief system so they may fire you too!!

Maybe you don't know it but we lost many doctors who made homes here and even raised here. Wanting to keep those doctors here is not racist.

How in the hell did you get racist out of this? Pull it out of your ass? The old system had the doc from his office come and see his patient.

Really!!! For stating the obvious? All the doctors that left town were unhappy with the contract situation. If you wanted to keep your own doctors maybe you should give your own money If you have any!!!

If the doctors want to leave, let them. The ones who are in it to help people will stay.

Seems Dr. Kildare you have no clue how medicine works now. The average gp has no clue how to deal with complicated patient with multiple system failure. I would doubt that the average GP could read a blood gas much less interpret more advanced diagnostic tests. Do you really think that the average gp can run a central line or run a code? i have serious doubts about it and so do most hospitals thats why they are bringing in hospitalists at a record rate.

You read WAY too far into what that person said. I'm assuming that by "our own doctors" they mean people who actually live in this area. Many doctors and nurses in the Upper Cumberland have left CRMC to work at Vanderbilt and other surrounding hospitals because they believed that the demands being placed on them was too great a safety and liability risk.
