I say no to both. Every politican thinks the way to solve a problem is raise taxes on property. I don't use this service so let the ones that use it... pay for it. Im sure it will pass because people that don't own property could care less.

When you look at the work force at the hospital, most of the people who work there do not even live in Pemiscot County. So a tax raise is going to keep people in a job that do not live here, work here, or buy goods here and quite frankly could care less about the people of Pemiscot County. This is the same administrator and group of managers that ran the hospital in the ground giving the people of Pemiscot County poor care these past years and are still there doing the same thing. The hospital should stand alone as a business. I understand that we service a large majority of Medicaid and Medicare patients, however, if the services were done correctly then Medicaid and Medicare would pay the hospital for those services. If the hospital gave good care in the first place, then more people who had other insurance would feel comfortable going there for healthcare. Lying in the ER for 8 or 12 hours for something is ridiculous. Not paying their bills so that the workers have supplies they need to run lab tests or cover an injury with a dressing is ridiculous. Having an MRI machine from the dark ages and other outdated equipment to run tests on us is ridiculous and a direct result of poor management. Yet you can bet that Administrator got paid on time each and every pay period. You can also bet his friends all got paid on time too. Yet they continue to give poor care. I doubt if the "new" board will do anything to correct the situation or even if they can. They are receiving their information from the same people who have mismanaged the hospital these past years and gave information to the previous board, so it is doubtful if things will change. No, I am definitely not for throwing good money after bad or using my taxes to support workers from outside Pemiscot County who do nothing to contribute to bettering our way of life. If I spend money, I expect to get something for it. So no to new taxes for the hospital until a change in administration has taken place and we actually have a chance at saving it.

You are right about the long hours in ER and the outdated equipment. I waited 10 hours in ER in pain. I had a MRI there and the machine broke down while I was in it. I had to test again, then I was told it was normal. I was still hurting so I went to St. Francis and it turned out I had grangrene of the gall bladder. I had surgery and now I am back to normal. I tried to talk to the Administrator, but the secretary told me he would get back to me and he never did. They just don't care up there.
