Taken there by helicopter after Ambulance said I would not make it to Highlands....I was hemorrhaging through my bowels....by the time they got me stabilize and in the chopper it was almost an hour before... more I got there. Emergency room let me lay for hours until I needed 4 units of blood. I had a Catheter in and they pulled it and put I another destroying a 60,000 dollar artificial sphincter device that released my bladder. They also said the pick line that Highlands had put in was poor. They put a I.V. in my neck....which they never used. They used my pick line in my arm the whole time. Waste of money. Filed fraud charges against the helicopter and Ambulance service...had to be a kick back on $43,000 ride when The ambulance could have had me at HRMC....in 15 minutes from Paintsville Mountain Manor where I was getting physical therapy. Doctor at Highland had stopped the hemoraging at an earlier date. Lost very little blood. Nurses acted as if them were miserable all the time. Rarely showed kindness. Nothing like the nurses at Highlands, UK, Baptist East, or Jewish hospitals. Rather go to a vet as Pikeville.
