This hospital ER was the worst. The ER doctor was rude to my wife and myself. My wife has been having severe migraines and has been passing out. They did some tests but said everything was normal?!? Do... more they even look at those tests? Also it would have been nice if they could have admitted her so that she could possibly see a neurologist or neurosurgeon. Passing out and hitting her head on the bathtub yesterday was extremely scary. We deserve answers and we deserve to be treated as human beings not like gum stuck to the bottom of the doctors shoe!! Nice big hospital but same rude doctors who have a God complex!!
This really should be a negative star! I am from NJ and really feel sorry that this is the only hospital that Owensboro has. My mother died in this hospital, I called the morning that passed away and spoke... more to Gladys in ICU and asked her how my mother did during the night and she said that her heart rate was up but they got it controlled and she helped her to the bathroom. No mention that her cardiologist was there st 2:00 in morning with this. She said she was stable.
The 7:00 shift came in and nurse Seth said that family should be called because my mother was actively dying. Thank god for him. The family in Owensboro was able to be around her but brother and I did not make it time. Seth, run away from that hospital! It seems you are to good for this place.
I am angry that I could not say a final good bye to my mother and by the lack of knowledge that this nurse had. She could have called one of her kids during the night, 2 emergency phone numbers were on her board and everyone was told to call day or night.
I called patient relations on March 30th and said they would investigate and still have not heard a thing.
The security guards on night shift are awful and very rude!! They are taking their precious time and my sister needs stitches. I won’t be bringing her back here ever again! I wouldn’t recommended this... more hospital to a fly! They deserve no stars! The security guard that is suppose to be “watching” over my sister is currently asleep. I have a photo just not sure how to upload it onto this comment.
